Scientist by profession, I try to give real science concepts a fantasy twist in my writing.

For anyone interested in my earlier work, the Majaos Trilogy is permanently offered for free at Obooko.

While studying for my B.Sc. in Chemistry, I met a friend who introduced me to fantasy fiction, especially TSR, AD&D type books. Despite all I've read since, that remains my frame of reference for the fantasy genre.

My series, The Salvation of Tempestria, beginning with Shifting Stars is rooted in a updated version of that kind of fantasy world. But it's just 1 world within a wider sci-fi/fantasy universe and the story is told by an immortal girl from the future with a plan to save the world...or possibly end it.

Sometimes my fingers can find that shape if I just let them type. If I really can't find what to write, I need to sit down with pen and paper, and do some serious planning. If I don't even know what to plan, then it's time to sit/walk and think for a while.

If you're writing a sequel or series, I often find inspiration in a line I wrote in a previous book that could be explored further.(less)

Tempestria 4 Cover reveal

The final checks are done, so it's time to reveal the cover for Tempestria 4 - Fragmented Control.



He's been mentioned in every book so far: Ulvarius, the most dangerous wizard tyrant in history. Even after three centuries, he continues to cast a long shadow. But this book isn't just about him. It's about power and tyranny in various forms, and it explores the comparisons between Ulvarius and Dreya Read more of this blog post »
