About this author

For much of my life, I was one of those quirky folk known as a "coder". I wrote computer code, not stories. I was fairly successful at it, and I had a lot of fun doing it. But my true passion was writing books and stories that would inspire and ignite the light of creativity in others, just as my favorite storytellers had inspired me in my youth. I'm still in the early phases of my journey as an author, but it has been quite an adventure so far.

I write contemporary fantasy, epic fantasy, and sci-fi. My books The Remortal, Ghosts of ARCADIA, The Ninth Order, and Clockworkers are available on various digital book stores.

My favorite things include Japanese food, gadgets, comics, and cats.

You can find my regular musings on my blog at http://blo

It’s kind of a mix of Harry Potter, The Prestige, and even a little Ghostbusters vibe. I've slipped into a groove where I end up blending magic and science in my stories, and I think it works. As Clarke famously wrote, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."(less)

One of the Oscar categories that Americans routinely do not “get” is the Foreign Language film. Mainstream audiences typically hate subtitles, and they really hate stories they can’t relate to. The cinema sensibilities of Europe, South America, and Asia don’t always cleanly translate to those of us used to Hollywood structure, and Ida is sadly just the latest film fitting the trend. Ida is blac...

I like it when writers blend fantasy and science into work that crosses genres. It's a theme I incorporate in many of my own books. The premise of Latent Dark had me ready to love the book, and initially I was intrigued by its vaguely future world wh ...more

I liked this book for its interesting chapters told from the perspective of witches both young and old, alive and dead. The mythology here is rich and fitting for the time period, and each witch exposes the reader to a different part of what it means ...more
Stephanie Trinity
Stephanie Trinity is on page 233 of 336 of Neptune's Brood: It's like reading a progress report for an audit, through a lens of deep economic theory. The worldbuilding is excellent, but just possibly too detailed.

“Their lives revolved around evil acts; some within their control, and some not. Some of them weren’t born with the capacity for kindness, and others found it better to spare no compassion for anyone in this cruel world because they felt none would be given to them. Fate deals a bad hand to some folks. Some people are just doomed to be no good.”
Ramsey Isler, The Remortal

“We all reach a point that is the limit of our understanding. When we stare over the precipice of uncertainty and into the dark unknown that we cannot explain with hard evidence, that is when we trade understanding for belief. At best, we make an educated guess. At worst, we make blind leaps of faith.”
Ramsey Isler, The Ninth Order

“I’m an immortal. But I don’t want to be one anymore. Or rather, I don’t want to be an immortal stuck in a mortal world anymore. There is something greater out there for me, but in order to get it I need someone to put an end to my life in this world.”
Ramsey Isler, The Remortal
