My Stories

I have been working on two stories I hope to make novel length.

First, and I have been treating it as most important, is “The Barbarian“.

An evil wizard calling himself the Red Griffin is planning to take over the realms of the Twelve Kingdoms.

One man, the Barbarian, dares to stand against him, while the Kingdoms unify and march against the Red Griffin.

In a battle of might and magic, only one will emerge victorious.

This is how my synopsis begins. I still have not finished that either, so this is all I’m posting for now.

As for the story, I have about 40,000 words so far and am looking at trying to achieve 75.000, or thereabout, to make it to a standard (more or less) length of novels in this day and age.

The difference will be that, unlike so many self-published contributions of late, I will have an editor go through it before I offer it to the public. I would be remiss in my duties if I posted a substandard manuscript and expected to be taken seriously. Since I do wish to be viewed as a true Author instead of just a guy who writes stuff to post on Amazon, I cannot, in good conscience, ask money for something I wouldn’t pay money for.

Second, my Science Fiction piece, “Challenge Of The Velah”, is waiting in the wings, as ‘they’ say.

A man has been unwittingly caught up in a battle of survival between the Heskah race and the evil Sakalel, who are intent on annihilation
of the more passive race. The man finds he is destined to be the Velah, or “The One Who Intervenes” and must face the Sakalel warriors and try to save his new friends from extinction.


In an effort to be more visible, I have created blogs for both, in the guise of the main characters, where I also post excerpts of the respective works. I’ve created a Facebook page for my Barbarian, too. (For the blogs, click on the titles posted above.)

My Velah blog is still under construction, as I have only recently decided to create it. I have posted the excerpt and found it is still very rough and badly in need of revision and/or editing, so I’ll be working to get that accomplished in the next few days/weeks, as I can get myself motivated.


So, if you please, click the links, read some of my writing, and, most important, leave me a comment on your impressions, ideas, recommendations, what ever you care to tell me, as long as you please keep it clean. I am trying to be “Family Friendly” here, and ask you do, too.

[Due to an excess of SPAM, I had to disable the comment sections. My apologies. If you care to leave me some feedback, just email me at and I will try to add them manually.]


Thanks for visiting my site!

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!
