I write fiction and poetry, but in two very different styles:
First, I write fast-paced fantasies with a mystical bent, featuring heroes who struggle against mysterious dangers in weird worlds. My novels 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, while Drifter Mage and Desert Mage are western fantasy novels (cowboys battle monsters).
Second, I write a wide range of poetry, in formal, free verse, and haiku forms. My work has appeared in many magazines, ranging from formal work (in The Threepenny Review, Measure, etc.) to free verse (The Evansville Review and The North American Review) to haiku (Modern Haiku, Frogpond and Mayfly).
My poetry book, Against The Night, details a long love story with poems that are sometimes sweet, sometimes fun, and even a little bit sexy. The book details the ups and downs of a long love's journey, the passions, the struggles, and the comfort two people find in each other.
It can be pre-ordered on Amazon at AgainstTheNight.
In my latest novel, Trollen Rose, Rev Caern seeks the Rose of Understanding, a 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 Thana, the Goddess of Death, are closing in. This is the next novel in my Saga of Sinnesemota series.
It's for sale on Amazon at TrollenRose.
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.
It's for sale on Amazon at DiskofDragons.
In my western fantasy Drifter Mage, Arch Compher find himself involved with a wagon-load 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 slavers, but also the evil spells of the deadliest elven of them all. It's for sale on Amazon at DrifterMage.
Desert Mage is also a fantasy novel in the spirit of the Old West. Doge Compher rides into trouble to help a child who needs saving. He'll need every bit of his formidable skill, because his enemies intend to sacrifice the child he has sworn to protect. To succeed, he must survive a desert filled with nasty surprises. Worse, his allies have betrayal on their minds. It's for sale on Amazon at DesertMage.
