Minnesota Black Author's Expo 2018
I'm excited to return to Minnesota's historic Black Author Expo! Just like last year's inaugural event, the expo is intended to support the work of black authors and to engage our community. The event gives black authors a chance to display their talents, network and meet the community and other authors. Come meet, greet, and buy books from me, and a wide, diverse group of Black authors in the Twin Cities! I'll be reading from my latest two works, The Preternaturalist and Shadow of the Valley, at 2:30 in the Author's Lounge! This event is free and open to the public. For more details click here...

Honored to be an Invited Guest at 20th Annual Convergence Con!
CONvergence is an annual convention for fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy in all media: a 4-day event with more than 6,000 members, and the premiere event of our kind in the upper Midwest. The first CONvergence had an attendance of 1,500. 20 years later CONvergence has grown to over 6,000 members and is still going strong. What a ride it has been! There have been ups and downs over two decades, but the convention has grown and evolved and continues to embrace the diversity and inclusion fundamental to its multi-genre roots, all the while never losing its sense of showmanship. In 2018 we will be celebrating the full 20-year history of CONvergence with a huge slate of new and Alumni Guests of Honor in addition to special programming that will look back at our history as a convention and a community.
Twin Cities Geek Interview, October 15, 2016
T. Aaron Cisco in a local writer, filmmaker and geek trivia maven. His latest novella, Teleportality, was brought to my attention, and given our mutual experiences with both prose and film I thought it would be a great opportunity to do some digging into life as a multimedia indie author. Teleportality packs a lot into its thin covers, much more so than many novels three times its size. Unsurprisingly, this short interview also has much to unpack, and I think we only touched the surface of he has on his mind. I am looking forward to finding out. Click here to read more...
