Thank you for visiting my author’s blog. Here I try to keep a regular record of my writing journey. Much of what I do in these pages is brainstorm ideas, discuss research concepts, variations on character and environments where I place figures from fiction.

My most recent work is the short story Boy of Sand and Sky. I wrote this short piece for the fantasy anthology Hall of Heroes. It is available now via Amazon and Kindle. Reviews have been coming in and I hope they might inspire you to select your own copy.

My other 2016 work, Laerka, is an urban fantasy rescue tale featuring a woman trafficked by Russian mobsters.
