Throughout my time at Blizzard I dedicated myself to “leveling up” my writing skills. I edited game scripts, wrote dialogue for some of the games (including almost all dungeon boss lines for WoW: Burning Crusade and WoW: Wrath of the Lich King), wrote voice over for game trailers, and penned several short stories. In 2009 my Warcraft graphic novel in partnership with DC/Wildstorm, entitled Ashbringer, hit #2 on the New York Times Bestseller List.

A few years later, another Warcraft graphic novel I wrote, Pearl of Pandaria, hit #3 on the list. To stay abreast of my past works, browse through the samples below, and follow the links to purchase.
