N. D. Hansen-Hill

I have a passion for writing...and painting. I’m always afraid, before I hit the keyboard or the canvas, that I’ll suddenly find I can’t do it anymore.

Writing and painting are such gifts, you see. Not something you really possess, but something you need to work so hard at in order to take any ownership at all. The payback isn’t monetary, either - what’s worth far more are those manuscript moments when you lose yourself in a scene, and become the cliff-climber, or the ghost-challenger. Writing like this can be exhausting, but afterwards, you feel dissociated, and need to re-orient yourself to real life. It’s great!

Painting is much the same, even though it terrifies me. I’m never comfortable being an "artist", because I never grew up with any passion for drawing or any talent, and every time I finish a painting I’m actually astounded that I did it! It’s similar to the feeling I get when I re-read one of my manuscripts, and come to a scene I like and think, "Did I write that?!". I only dimly recall writing it, you see...because in my mind, I was there!

Zack Logan’s origins are far from "local". His family ties extend back five thousand years, to a time when Egyptians revered their Pharaohs as gods.
Justin Hyde studies the past. It’s a manufactured past, and Justin is one of the few who realizes it. It’s his job to discover...what isn’t there.
Shawn Walsh’s problems don’t arise from his own troubled past but from someone else’s. Fires, floods, battles, bone-rattling quakes—he’s frequently an unwilling and horrified participant in events long gone. For when The Hollowing claims him, his present dissolves.
Jasper Gray has a rare gift. He’s a dowser, capable of seeking out-and finding-precious metals and gemstones and wresting them from unremarkable rock. He’s a man with a mission whose life is going nowhere. Jasper’s future is threatened, haunted by the ghosts of his past. There’s one whose destiny lies along a similar path, whose efforts spawn treachery. If Jasper’s not cautious, the day will come, soon, when the two of them are at each other’s throats. In the end only one can win, and Jasper’s genes have already predicted the winner. His only hope is that a forged bond of friendship will outweigh kinship...and overcome the shadow of Gray heritage.
