About Me

AP@EcolaI've been scribbling words for longer than I want to admit and these days it's a simple matter to share one's thoughts and opinions (especially the latter) on line for all to see. So here's my home page, with just the sort of thing you expect from someone who wants you to read his books and stories. Feel free to poke around and leave a comment. And of course once my various works of fiction are available for sale, feel free to pick up one or two of those as well.

Over the years I have produced material for a wide range of roleplaying games, from Bard Games' Talislanta to Paizo's Pathfinder and most of the stuff in between. I've also written short fiction, MMO scenarios, comics and novels, and my new supernatural thriller series, the Shepherd trilogy, is scheduled for publication by Permuted Press in 2016.

By day I'm an IT professional for a large school district, I enjoy history, music and games. I have an awesome grown daughter who does cool stuff like union organizing, building schools in Africa and working to improve education and school policy here at home. My artist mom is a mere 86 years young and in her youth she too did union organizing, was a member of the Communist party and hung out with such luminaries as Malvina Reynolds, Paul Robeson and Dalton Trumbo, and partied with Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. No, really. She did.

So welcome to the page -- check out my blog, read some of my short fiction, find out more about my past credits and see what's ahead in the coming months. I hope you like it.
