  1. 'Wreck' came about as the nexus of several desires. I wanted to write something with lots and lots of characters. I wanted to work with some really nasty, mean, villainous protagonists. Last, I wanted a story with plenty of action: conflict and violence and danger. What better setting to indulge all those urges than a pirate ship? The underworld of the Empyrean universe needed some fleshing out, after all. Since that beginning (the over-long first chapter was originally intended as a stand-alone short story), it's wandered into some unexpectedly interesting territory. I hope you'll stay aboard for the journey... and look forward to the Wreck at the end.
