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 …

All the stories are set in Voramis, in the city where Blade of the Destroyer takes place. However, you can still enjoy …

New Home Chore

A New Chore I’m taking a temporary break from the Word Of The Day Challenge I started. I’ve been assigned a task; the making of a monthly meal planner, to feed me, my older brother, and our mother. They both have a small to regular appetite, while I double it, or play the “clean up …

A Personal Update

A Personal Update

More Issues, But Not My Fault If any recall, around the end of last year, I had a very bad experience with my digestive system. I did write a post about it and got a few well wishes. (By the way, if you gave me some, I again thank you!) Between then and now, I …

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!
