I tend write epics in science fiction and fantasy primarily. However, I have done some shorts in dark fantasy, fantasy comedy, science fiction comedy, and role playing gaming modules. After over twenty years of thinking I should publish I finally got myself organized and seriously started forging my notes into complete books. I haven’t had time yet to hammer out any of my short stories as I am spending all my spare time working on my larger stories. You can follow up on any of my works here as I will keep this site up to date on my projects, their progress, and eventually where they were published.

My goal is to transition to full time writing someday. In the mean time I continue to hold a day job as software engineer and architect. I am also publishing many of my programming works through a more geeky web site called Natural Order Development ( (link is external). I have been working with computers for nearly three decades so it isn’t likely I’ll ever stop. Writing stories and code are my primary hobbies as well as my profession.

I live in the Emerald City in the Great Pacific Northwest with my wife and son.

While you’re here, please check out my available works, my current projects, and browse around. I’ll try to post new blogs as often as I can given that most of my spare writing time is dedicated to my works in progress.

If you have a question or comment please email me or comment here I’d love to hear from you! You can find me on Facebook at (link is external) and Twitter at (link is external)

Thanks for stopping by!
