UPDATE: October 23, 2018, saw the release of my first stand-alone novel, Hell's Beginning. I am an Author, with 2 WIP manuscripts and several short stories in various genres.

Stay tuned for further developments.

New Year’s Day, 2019

New Year’s Day, 2019

Happy New Year! So, another New Year has dawned. I cannot say that 2018 was particularly bad. Not in its entirety, anyway. As usual, there were ups and there were downs. While I try not to necessarily dwell on the downs, I attempt to relish the ups. As some know, 2017 saw my first stories …

Gutenberg Editor- Denied!

Gutenberg Editor- Denied!

So, this is just a rant-style post. Recently, WordPress has deemed it necessary to force upon those of us who use it a new editor to make posts called Gutenberg. I’ve seen it as an option before, even tried to make the switch, but it did not make much sense to me. Maybe I just …

Bio

I am a fiction writer;

A creator of larger-than-life heroes of ages gone by;
Great wizards tainted, and those who resist them;

War between interstellar travelers, both on this planet and far away;
Alien races intent on the annihilation of any being not their own,
and weaker ones in need of a savior- as well as the One who becomes their savior.

Clashes with bad people and dangerous places, where only one can survive.

When you get to my writing, sit back, hold on, and enjoy the ride!
