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.

Churches & Religion vs Fantasy

Continued From: Marriages & Other Such Stuff in Fantasy or Sci-Fi?

Setting foot inside a church

Well, it is not unusual for them to puzzle over human rituals, one of my characters may go to a human church to find out why human go there, but than he will be very confused over the fact that the human god requires humans to talk (pray, etc) to him in a building built by the hands of man... they will ask, that if the human god is so powerful, why would he cower in a building built by the inferior humans

I do have one alien character, who raised with strict Christian humans, grew up o become a powerful, brutal, and very dangerous cult leader, starting his own "church" and slaughtering all "evil humans" in the name of a snake god, which he later began to claim he was that god.

I had this happen, because aliens are not humans and think differently than humans and therefore could not understand talk about blood sacrifice, God after all sacrificed his own son brutally on a cross and didn't want to be the only child murdering daddy on the block so told Abraham to murder his son too, then commanded all Christians to weekly feast on the blood and flesh o his dead son in church.

Humans understand that they are not really cannibalizing Jesus every week, and no Human in his right mind would ever call God an abusive, child murdering dead-beat dad, but do you really think an alien is going to understand the twists, warped logic of a bloof thirsty Christian?

Human sacrifice and cannibalism of the son of God is the centre of the Bible, the foundation of the Christian religion,... how is an alien to know that the Humans are just playing pretend and LYING to him and are only eating crackers and drinking grape juice?

How is an alien to know that the blood sacrifice that is so widely preached from the Bible, is just the warped, demented fantasy of blood crazy psychopaths hell bent on fear mongering the peoiple into obeying them?

And therefore the used Moses' book of Leviticus as the basis of the cult, this alien started, and followed it's instructions on blood sacrifice to the letter... when humans complain that the aliens shouldn't be sacrificing humans, the aliens become confused and deeply puzzled and point out that they are only doing what the humans' instruction book (the Bible) told them to because they wanted to fit in with the Humans. They were only killing humans in the name of god to be good Christians and fit in with the Human.

And so I ask.. why do so many Fantasy writers, write a good vs evil god vs satan style scenario, when only Humans on Earth are going to follow that belief system to begin with?
