It's all about heroism and failure and epic fights between godlike sorcerers amidst day-to-day trials and heartache. I've realized my love for wild places and wilderness and empty, sweeping landscapes and so this one will have more of a frontier feel to it.

Another thing I'm slowly putting together is a series of crime novels, still set in the same fantasy world, which will be right down in gutters and all whiskey and bare, cut-up knuckles and dirt, dealing with street crime and conspiracies in an urban morass.(less)

Between classes, train trips, getting stuck at bus stations, I had a lot of down time, and a lot of things that made it into the book were on my mind. Living in a foreign place, in a country where I could barely understand anyone, sometimes feeling (or literally getting) lost, and the grandeur of the journey were all things that appeared in the book. A lot of Ours Is the Storm is about Revik and Ahi'rea figuring out what their lives are, what they mean. (less)

The End For Now

Raze began as an experiment to write an ongoing, long-form story with minimal editing. It was an exercise in expressing a few thoughts and feelings I’ve carried with me for a long time, thinking about some of the things, the good and horror, that persist in the world and about which we read every day in the news, as we scroll past with our thumbs, as we struggle to take in all that’s happening...
