A: I answer this question in my author description. When I’m not portaging, enjoying the starry night skies under my small one-person tent, or reading, or watching endless TV series and movies, or working at my government job, or spending time with my beautiful wife Sandra, or our two daughters, Julianna and Kristina, or napping with my cats, Lily and Misa, or making craft beer in my garage, or playing cards with friends and neighbours, or listening to psychobilly heavy metal punk music, or playing first-person shooter video games, or hosting trivia nights, I have been known to write stories and poems, in an attempt to capture the musings of my mind.

Battling their way through treacherous terrain and immeasurable odds, the boys must learn to lean on each other if they hope to survive. Little do they know fate has far greater plans for them. For they represent the trinity, a symbol older than time itself, that keeps the darkness at bay.
They are three, bound by a fourth, destined to save mankind.
With time running out, and the cloak of eternal night descending, can the boys find a way to turn the tables on evil?
Or will they be the next to join the growing legion of the dead?
