While life took him away from writing for a while, his interests continued to expand. He learned several languages and studied about other cultures around the world and through time. He took up calligraphy, map making, and archery. These ecclectic areas of study were useless at work, but when he finally returned to writing, it provided a unique perspective. He returned to his first love, epic fantasy, and set about creating worlds and stories colored by the broad scope of his studies.
