Fairwell, 2014: Welcome 2015

What a year 2014 was!

Definitely a very, very pivotal year for me. My very first novel, Frostborn,was published in August. Then, in September,  I took off the editor hat that I have worn for 14 years and exchanged it for that of a full time author. I went on my very first book tour, designed two more board games and a card game for the Thrones and Bones series, and wrote Nightborn, (and started plotting book 3).

Also, what a year it's been for Frostborn. Just look:
