Life is good, and getting better!


I recently moved to Salinas, CA, near the Monterey Bay. Those who know me remember that I met my wife at the Defense Language Institute there in 2004. I miss Hawai'i, but I'm loving the near-constant temperature and overcast skies. Now that the school year has gotten into full swing, the writing is beckoning me again...

About Me

Urban Fantasy with believable characters.
Having just finished the excellent Chains of Prophecy[...]


I'd like to share with you my most recent developments.

Looking for more than just a tale of dragons?
Dragon Princess is a wonder weave of fantasy and who-done-it. [...]

Expanding my reach - easier said than done!


When I started on the small/self publishing route, I knew that it would be difficult to get myself known. Writing is easy, and enjoyable; marketing is harder. But we persevere! I look forward to connecting with more and more readers as time goes on!

I started my first novel, The Drifter​, in September of 2012. Since then, I've published a total of six books and two short stories, trying my hand at Fantasy, Paranormal fiction, and Sci-Fi. I also review books on my blog Beyond the Curtain of Reality.     



Writing, gaming, reading, telling stories, teaching, playing goofy games with my kids, and nigh-eternal optimism.     

A father of four and a full-time teacher at a high school, writing is my creative passion of choice. Since I first put words to paper in 2012, I've been enthralled and enamored with the generative process, throttling through books as fast as the other things in my life allow, while still making time for my love, my boys, and my new daughter Lilith!

My most recent novel is also my first Fantasy offering, Dragon Princess. Written from the perspective of a blind protagonist, it was a challenge and a thrill to work on; I hope to have the sequel to that book ready by next Summer.
