I love fantasy, adventure, and magic. More than that, I adore my readers.

My books are written to entertain -- fantasy adventures filled with compelling characters, spectacular magic, thrilling action, constant intrigue, and a sense of discovery. I equate them to the "Marvel Movie" version of fiction, intended to be a fun escape.

I would love to have you join me and my quirky characters for one outrageous adventure after another. With over a million published words, my author journey has just begun.

Best wishes,
Jeff

My idea was to create a world where symbols have inherent meaning not just to people, but to how the world itself functions. Combine that with a controlling theocratic government that brands newborns with runes at birth, designating their path in life, and you have the basis for my story.

Being one of the rare individuals who has no rune, my main character is doomed to a meaningless existence. He is the consummate underdog (I love underdogs), and opts to commit the capital offense obtaining a fake ruin in hopes for a better future for himself. When he finds a symbol that has been erased from everyone's knowledge, it exposes a powerful magic that will surely change the world.(less)

Fate of Wizardoms Inspiration Post #4: Gods and Wizard Lords


This is my final Wizardoms “Inspiration” post. You may have noticed I avoided posting about plot. I prefer to leave that arena dark until you embark on your journey. I abhor spoilers and would hate to ruin the surprises. Now, on to the post.From the onset, I wanted gods, or the power of gods, to have a heavy hand in this world. Akin to books like The Belgariad (great series), these gods do not Read more of this blog post »
