Due to the murder of my family and the resulting court cases, police investigations, and FBI investigations, I no longer have time to daily update this website.

Likewise ALL novel, short story, and article writing projects are on hiatus.

All book releases, book signings, workshops, and convention appearances for 2015 (and unknown amount of time after) are on hold while the murder investigation of my family is ongoing.

Writing advice for the worldbuilding, character creation, and other writing how to articles are on hold.

From now on, the bulk of updates here will be about the investigation into the murder of my family.

No, NOT just THIS author website, not JUST the EelKat pename, not just self published books: ALL 15 (fifteen) of my penames are on hiatus, that includes traditional published books as well, newspaper reporting jobs, editing jobs, my work for Harlequin Romance Novels, my work for Disney... EVERYTHING is on hiatus. Every publishing house I work for, every series I write, every penname I write under: they are ALL on hiatus, ALL projects.

There is NOTHING being published under ANY penname, not for ANY series, not for ANY publisher, from 2015 onward. EVERYTHING is on hold due to the murder of my family. I do not know when or even if, any of the projects will be restarted or finished.

Yes, BOTH the magazines I owned are indefinitely shut down because of this as well, with no plans for either magazine to return. The publishing house I own is also closed to submissions from now on, we will no longer be publishing anything. It is unlikely we will reopen the publishing house either.

All book signing tours, workshops, letures, PAX events, ComicCon events, carnival/festival/state fair/car show events are also canceled. I will not be attending ANY of them. If a venue still has my name listed as a guest/speaker/etc it is because they've not yet removed it. I WILL NOT be there, no matter where it is! 


The ONLY thing continuing from this point on, is THIS website, where I'll post updates on the murder investigation, hopefully every week, but, you know how it is when 10 members of your family are beheaded, it's kind of difficult to have a schedule for anything anymore.

Hymal Kadar: Demon of the North

UPDATE: November 13, 2017
Cover Reveal & More Info on The Project!

Hymal Keydar is a "Sweet Romance" Monster Porn series I wrote for back in the late 1990s/early 2000s. This series is a retelling of the classic Japanese folktale: "The Inugami".

If you've never heard of it, Inugami was a shapeshifting dog demon who rescued and fell in love with a Human girl. In the original folklore the Inugami takes the form of a rabid akita dog and murders her husband. In vengeance the girl, buries the dog alive at the foot of a volcano, thus removing his ability to turn back into human form. The Inugami eventually starves to death and his spirit haunts her the rest of her life. 

Several modern day re-tellings of InuGami exist, including novels, comic books, movies, and tv shows. Though only one has ever gained popularity outside of Japan: InuYasha, the Manga and Anime series by Rumiko Takahashi.

Like my other series (The Bride of Sesshomaru, and The Quaraun series) Hymal Keyar also drew heavily on InuYasha for inspiration. While most of my fanfic series put Lord Sesshomaru as the main character, this one, instead put his companion Rin as the main character, now renamed Dawa for it's mass market release.

Even though it was only rated PG-13 and contained no on page sex scenes, it was one of the many stories which got deleted in 2012 when mass deleted 11,000 stories off their site.

Presumably this series was deleted off because of the graphically violent on page murder of Hymal Keydar's beloved horse, and a torture scene in the dungeons.

Currently it is only available as a limited edition short run chapbook that was handed out as a freebie to fans in 2013.

However, as many people have been requesting it's return, I am currently (today is November 13, 2017) in the process of removing the copyrighted characters, replacing them with new original characters, and formatting it for an Amazon release.

Hymal Keydar was scheduled for release summer 2015, but as you know, all book publishing was put on hiatus after the kidnapping.

Kindle and paperback print editions are expected to be available to the public in late 2018/early 2019.

...and yes, I am still working on the Quaraun books. There are now 5 Quaraun novels (each novel equaling 4 to 6 short stories combined and expanded into 1 long story) available in both Kindle and paperback prints. At least 2, possibly as many as 4 are due to be released in 2018.

The cover art for the new Amazon release have now been made, so, here they are:

About the Series:

Set in an unspecified (and therefore fictional) region of Asia, in an old but unspecified time period that is probably the 1780s-ish.

Main character Dawa is a common thief. A young street urchin forced to steal food to survive after her family is killed during a war. A wild Human girl with no manners, she runs from the city guards, wanted for the crime of stealing bread, right into the arms of Hymal Keydar, a wandering prince from the Himalayas Alps. Seeing that the half starved girl is guilty of nothing more than being hungry, the strange prince buys the girl from the guards. 

Fearing her new life as the prince's slave, Dawa finds herself treated like a princess, by a man with many dark secrets and a bevy of bounty hunters keeping him on the run.
