Sometimes you have to take one step back to take two forward. Or in other words, never say never. Or to put it in simple terms – I’ve gone perm again…

I’ve been pretty happy with the contracting work I’ve done over the last year and a bit. After being preoccupied almost exclusively with the publishing work before that, it’s been a nice change to be coding full-time again (occasional side projects here and there don’t really count in my book). I’ve also been lucky enough to meet some great people along the way.

Despite being a loner at heart I had to admit I did miss the office banter a bit. So when I ended up contracting at an exciting company with a great team, the year had flown by fast. And while I was adamant I wouldn’t be going back to full time employment, sometimes the stars align just right and an opportunity lands in your lap that you just can’t refuse.

With a slew of exciting projects ahead I’m thrilled to join Castle Trust this month as their Lead Developer. Yay! :)

Feral, Dragons Reborn (Uutta Toivoa)

At the same time, this does not mean I’m saying goodbye to my publishing dreams. On the contrary – “Feral: The Dragon Within” has just been release (expect a longer post soon about the 2+ years of work I put into that book), and while I’m working on Feral part 2 and Hellena’s story, there’s some exciting things I’d like to try with the Wing & Fang brand soon too.
