About this author

While one of my unpublished novels is getting read by friends, I'm making a big push to serialize some novellas in Hugh Howey's Sand universe (with his permission). Scavenger 1 is out now for $.99 on Kindle. Part two is almost done and will be about four times as long. Scavenger is a scifi adventure mashup of 24 and Dune with a bit of Ronald Malfi type characters to make you care.

On top of being an aspiring author, I'm a producer for Adventures in SciFi Publishing podcast.

My most polished novel, Order After Dark, is a post apocalyptic fantasy set in the rift between Iowa and the Abyss. I'm currently looking for beta readers. Another novel, which n...more

The story you’ll find in James Lovegrove’s WORLD OF FIREis a familiar one. A special agent has been recruited to find out what’s gone wrong on a planet with its own rules, political system, and no small amount of problems from its magma-rock mining infrastructure.Oh yeah, and there’s a race of AIs called the […]

Scavenger by Timothy C. Ward
" From a very dark - icky! - place, can our hero redeem himself?

This is a story about a quest for redemption in an odd almost magical-realist world best described as "Mad Max 2 with more sand".

Ward gives us a hero who is in almost the worst possibl... " Read more of this review »

Ted Dekker
“Perfect, that's our plan then. But you'll have to give up being a priest first. I wouldn't want to just sit around whispering and sipping hot chocolate.”
Ted Dekker, The Priest's Graveyard

Zachary Jernigan
“Men and women who had worn suits for decades traded punches powerful enough to crush elephant skulls, dodged and deflected attacks too fast for the eye to follow, and died suddenly, often before the crowd registered the killing blow.
Victors and dead men were separated by a blink of the eye.”
Zachary Jernigan, No Return: A Novel of Jeroun

Stephen King
“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Michael J. Sullivan
“Each killing steals a bit of humanity until a murderer is nothing more than an animal. A hunger replaces the spirit. A want for what was lost, but as with innocence, the soul can never be replaced. Joy, love, and peace flee such a vessel and in their stead blooms a desire for blood and death.”
Michael J. Sullivan, The Crown Tower

“By the time the Somnambulist had set her creaking bones to rest on their assigned landing pad, Holden had lost all patience with human stupidity.

So, of course, it came out to meet him.”
James S.A. Corey
