About this author

What started as a trip to the hospital for the birth of my son, Aiden, turned into a journey into the world of Alorya.

I started writing as a method for soothing the nerves of a "brand new" dad and developed a love for it.

Currently a Technical Analyst for a Financial Software company, I write in my spare time in hopes that one day, my day job will become my hobby and my hobby will become my day job.

Looking forward to sharing more books with you,
