Have you been interested in reading The King’s Sword but haven’t gotten around to it yet? Here’s your chance to get it for free! CLICK HERE I just uploaded The King’s Sword to NoiseTrade, a free distribution platform. All you have to do is sign up with your email address and download it as either a .mobi (Kindle) or .epub (almost everything else). You’re welcome to give me a tip ($5 is suggested, the same as the retail price for the ebook), but it’s not required. The greatest challenge to being an indie author is being discovered. I’ve gotten some good […]
At long last, Honor’s Heir is available! I’ve been working on this book for a long time, and it finally came together just in time for Awesome Con DC. I love the cover art, and I made some tiny changes to update the covers of The King’s Sword and A Cold Wind for consistency. You can read an excerpt here, as well as find the purchase links for Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, etc. A special thanks goes out to my Kickstarter supporters! Without their support, publication would have been delayed (well, more than it already was). I also got some great […]
It’s done! Things Unseen (A Long-Forgotten Song) is out! Things Unseen is the first book in my new dark, urban, Christian fantasy series. You can read an excerpt here, as well as find purchase links for ebooks and paperbacks. I’d also VERY much appreciate any reviews of Things Unseen if you have a chance! Check out the fantastic cover art! I love it! I even had the full digital painting made into posters in preparation for Awesome Con DC this weekend. I’m thrilled with the cover designer and look forward to working with him on the rest of the books in […]
In addition to fantasy, one of the genres I come back to again and again is historical fiction. I also read a lot of international fiction. I love great characters, but I also love that sense of the exotic, something new and different than everyday modern life. Historical periods are wonderful to explore in books… maybe I wouldn’t want to live in revolutionary France, but it makes a great setting for dramatic stories! These are a few of my favorite historical periods: England 1000-1400s The Brothers of Gwynedd Quartet: Comprising Sunrise in the West, the Dragon at Noonday, the Hounds […]
Paperbacks are now available! The King’s Sword: Amazon | Barnes and Noble A Cold Wind: Amazon | Barnes and Noble AND posters are now available! You can order them directly from my Zazzle shop.

My personal favorite is the glossy canvas… the colors are gorgeous and intense, and the texture […]
One of the first scenes was posted here (you may wish to read it first). This is a slightly later scene in the urban fantasy / supernatural thriller I’ve been working on. I skipped a bit because… well, there is excitement that I don’t want to post online yet. I am looking for a few beta readers for this series, so if you’re interested, please let me know. I may not be able to accommodate everyone, but I’ll see. ***** Aria spent the next day inside. She had plenty of books full of sticky notes and highlighting and she stared at her […]
Iola Goulton recently posted a nice review of The King’s Sword on her blog ChristianReads. I especially liked the fact that the story was character-driven, as this meant the author managed to tell the story without descending into violence and abuse (I haven’t read Game of Thrones, but found the TV series far too dark and violent for my tastes). I don’t need a thrust-by-thrust description of the sword fight – I want to know what happened and how it affects the characters, and The King’s Sword managed this well. …(re: being written in first person:) Personally, I found that he had […]
