I've been writing stories since I was 11 years old when I decided my cool Dungeons and Dragons character needed to be the subject of an epic novel. Never did get that one done, but kept the fire burning ever since. I became a visual artist, the last 16 years working as a computer animator. I make other writers and directors dreams come true, making their bad stories look good on screen.
So, I wondered... could I do any better? I find that writing books is my passion, the thing I like to do even when all other choices are available. I only hope enough people find the stories worthwhile. I would love to keep doing it as a profession one day.
Thanks for reading!

However, once I find someone whose writing I connect with mentally, I do tend to keep reading more stories from them consistently.
The good news is that it's not hard to distinguish a writing style you like. Before Chapter 1 is done in most books, I can tell whether I enjoy the style or not. Sometimes the style entices me more than the story, and sometimes the story is good enough despite the style. But more often than not, I make a quick judgment of either and put the book down.(less)

Lycaon's Fire series

Hi all!
"Lycaon's Fire" was always intended to be a series, and the response for more has given me confidence to officially start the series
currently titled, "Merrick, The Drifter."
"Lycaon's Fire" is Book 1 (gee, what else would it be?), so I will begin Book 2 as soon as I'm done with my current WIP.
Thank you all for making Book 1 such a success! I'm excited to get started on the next Merrick stor Read more of this blog post »
