How did this get started? Well, Chris Kennedy and I actually met as members of a fan organization for a series of milscifi books a few years ago. One night in late 2017 I was messaging with Chris on Facebook about having always wanted to write my own books. He was very encouraging. I don’t remember exactly how it went, but I proposed an idea for a book in the 4HU, specifically the Golden Horde. His response was something like ‘sounds good, how about I write it with you.’ The grin on my face probably made the people around me nervous. That was the start. Unfortunately it took me a while to get heavily into the writing, but now things are rolling along nicely!
