Me reading to my two youngest sons, Odysseus (left) and Beowulf (right-bottom)

Nothing stirs the heart and the imagination more than a well-written story. Even more than the greatest art of cinema, words can transport us to worlds never before conceived, sweeping us along with their power and majesty. We can become, for a time, a master spy, a powerful wizard, or a naive youth learning and growing as danger rises.
The joy of crafting a story can be, I think, at least as great as reading one. And, when it's all done, you release it into the world, letting them grow and take on a life of their own.
I welcome you into this world. No, these worlds, this myriad of whirling dimensions my mind has conceived of. Perhaps you will find one that sings to your heart. Perhaps you will be struck with fear, or wonder. But in all of them, my own joy awaits you.
Turn the page. Come on in.
This is my official website, created for all of my friends and fans to stop in, see what's new, and drop me a line. I'm almost always working on something, so check back often!
My greatest writing ideas are likely to bubble up at random, from comments I've read, other stories that people have told, or occurrences in my life. Who knows; a discussion we have could blossom into the seed of an epic fantasy series, or an insane sci-fi!
Besides a forum for discussion (which I love!) the site is also a repository, a central holding place for all my books, a place to buy and comment on each. Thank you for coming, and I hope you find something you like!
