An article I wrote for THE HISTORY READER

Buffalo cow and calf at Red Canyon Ranch



Hi All!

MAZE MASTER was released yesterday! It’s wonderful to finally see a book in print, and it never gets old. Despite the number of books we’ve published, they aren’t real until we hold the actual book in our hands.

My article on the science behind MAZE MASTER was just published in THE HISTORY READER. You can find it at: http://www.thehistoryreader.com/ancient-history/the-history-behind-the-mystery-maze-master/

I hope everyone is having a beautiful summer. It’s been cool here. We woke to 55 degrees this morning, which is just perfect for our northern souls. And the buffalo love this cool weather.  They are almost finished losing their shaggy winter coats.  

Happy reading to all!

MAZE MASTER and the ancient story of Daedalus


Daedalus is famous for his clever inventions and as the architect of the Minotaur’s labyrinth on Crete. He was also the father of Icarus who flew too close to the sun. He played an interesting role in MAZE MASTER.

In the story, Dr. James Hakari, known to his genetics students as the Maze Master, has vanished. But all around the world he’s leaving clues to a maze that must be deciphered if the world is to survive. Here’s the question that both Daedalus and Hakari had to answer: How do you create a maze to hold the most terrifying beast in the world? Is it possible? Or will the beast always escape…
