Alice did not look well. Kat kept glancing back at the girl in her carseat. Sergio drove today, so Kat could check in regularly with the little girl. She didn’t like what she was seeing. Alice kept coughing and she had a runny nose. She definitely had some kind of cold. Kat did all she…

The man with Sergio’s face walked casually through the crates of monsters and the corpses of men. In this world, there was another man called Sergio Rios, a man with a wife and daughter.

I am often known for diving straight into a project without having the least idea of how to do it well. I don’t regret this. I consider full, and immediate, immersion as the best way to learn. That said, it often results in a poor start, and I have to make a lot of changes…

A month passed since that eventful day in Washington D.C. when little Alice came into the world and her parents were forced to leave their home. Sergio and Katariina Rios, though they loved their daughter, had found little solace in that time. Immediately following the delivery, they could not return home. So they drove west…
