I surveyed my VIP Readers’ Club back in 2015/16 and asked what other genre or sub-genre they’d like to see me write. Overwhelmingly the response was epic fantasy. In 2018, I published the first of my epic fantasy adventure series, the Fabled Quest Chronicles with the first novel, Through Titan’s Trail. It’s 2020 and we’re coming to the end of …

Fabled Quest Chronicles Book 5 is Done! I finished the second to last book of the Fabled Quest Chronicles series yesterday! Nice and long, but not too long at 105,000 words. However, it ends on such a wicked cliff-hanger (actually more than one) I’m wondering if I should finish Book 6 and release both together. The epic fantasy Siren Storms …

Welcome back. It’s 2018! I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year’s holiday! I start Year 6 as an indie author with 15 (yes, I can’t believe it either) books in three different genres. As I’ve said in the past, I don’t make New Years’ resolutions in January. I always plan out everything in the November and December …

For 2017, I’ve gladly lived in the rainy world of Liquid Cool with its mega-skyscrapers, hovercars, cyborgs, and off-world colonies. We’ve gotten to watch our hero detective, Cruz, solve his crazy cases from Blade Gunner (Book 2) to the recent release of A.I. Confidential (Book 6) –all with tons of action and even laughs. What’s next in 2018? There will be …
