I write epic fantasies with a mystical bent... featuring heroes who struggle against mysterious dangers in weird worlds. Disk of Dragons and Trollen Rose are epic fantasies whose hero, Rev Caern, struggles to do right in a world of strange magic and deadly foes. Drifter Mage and Desert Mage are western fantasy novels (cowboys battle monsters).
My poetry ranges from formal work (published in Threepenny Review, Measure, etc.) to free verse (Evansville Review and North American Review) to haiku (Modern Haiku, Frogpond and Mayfly).
In my latest novel, Trollen Rose, Rev Caern seeks the Trollen Rose of Understanding, an magical artifact that will help him establish an empire of justice. But the Rose is hidden deep within a kingdom corrupted by slavers. Rev must defeat the slavers and find the Rose, but followers of the Goddess of Death are closing in. This is the next novel in my Saga of Sinnesemota series.

In my previous novel, Disk Of Dragons, demons hunt for poor Rev Caern, since evil mages think he can lead them to the Disk of Dragons, a magical artifact key to establishing an empire of justice. Rev flees home, only to be hired as sheriff of a small town, where he must catch a murderer and protect the townsfolk, including a beautiful girl with a mind of her own. Then the mages find out where he is. This is the first novel in my Saga of Sinnesemota series.

In my western fantasy Drifter Mage, Arch Compher find himself involved with a wagonload of pilgrims seeking to free their child from slavers and escape to a home in the Wilderlands. Before their journey is over, Arch must foil not only the murderous crew after them, but also the evil spells of the deadliest elven of them all.

Desert Mage is also a fantasy novel in the spirit of the Old West. Doge Compher is riding into trouble -- there's a child who needs saving. He'll need every bit of his formidable skill, because his enemies intend to sacrifice the child he swore to protect. To succeed, he must survive a desert filled with nasty surprises. Worse, his allies have betrayal on their minds.
