I was born in Coshocton Ohio, lived briefly in Key Largo, Fla., then returned to Coshocton. I have a bachelor's in journalism from Ohio State and have worked as a writer and editor since graduating in 1992. I currently live in Avon Lake, Ohio.
I've been dabbling in fiction since college, but just got serious about it in the last couple of years thanks to the explosion of e-readers and the ease of e-publishing. No publisher? No agent? No problem!
My stories are ultimately about people. While a good fantasy or science fiction book needs an interesting setting, in the end, all great stories revolve around people, not places.

It's interesting to read the comments about the "darkness" of this dark fantasy novel. I think dark fantasy is sort of like spicy food -- it all depends on what you are used to. What's dark to one person, is just ho-hum to someone else.
Overall, I did

An original story that's a mix of fantasy, adventure and paranormal. The characters are strong and the story keeps you moving along. Well done.
