About this author

All my life I have loved stories, whether told to me as I sat on my grandfather's lap or the one's I later discovered on my school's library shelves. So naturally I started writing short stories and have ever since been learning and developing the craft of writing and storytelling.

One night after a long bedtime story, one of my sons challenged me to write a 'real' book. So I borrowed an idea from a writer friend and asked my boys to choose three things to go in the story. They chose a dragon, a tree, and a ruby, and from the seed of that idea, the story of Gladius grew.

I set out to show my sons that if you put your mind to something, it can be done. Once I started writing the Gladius series, I knew I wanted to create a fantasy adventure nov...more

It is coming along well and will be out by the end of 2014. Because it is the final book in the series it has a difficult yet surprising and exciting ending. I am looking forward to releasing it, and the book set, to the many fans who have long anticipated it's coming.
Thanks for asking!(less)

Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.Ayn Rand

662
A man's sexual choice is the result and the sum of his fundamental convictions.... He will always be attracted to the woman who reflects his deepest vision of himself, the woman whose surrender permits him to experience a sense of self-esteem. The man who is proudly certain of his own value, will want the highest type of woman he can find, the woman he admires, the strongest, the hardest to conquer--because only the possession of a heroine will give him the sense of an achievement.Ayn Rand
