I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada, and I write speculative fiction (fantasy, sci-fi, horror), as well as poetry. I have been plying the trade for several years, periodically interrupted by those pesky events from life.
I have published independently and authored such books as the Killers and Demons series, Fairy Tale Fusion, and Ruined City. I've also had stories published in various anthologies, including Beyond the Wail, Legends and Lore and Mechanized Masterpieces from Xchyler Publishing.

Forgotten, But Not Gone
There is a room, at the top of an abandoned castle, the former pinnacle of the stronghold’s eastern tower. Years ago, it was a retreat, a sanctuary, a place of perfect magic.

The first Talon book was featured back in February, but the rest of series is still eligible. I started a new folder for the featured books, to organize things a bit better. You can check out the new folder here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_...
