At times I'll turn to my non-fiction stash of research materials. Other times, I'll dig into fiction, sometimes of the medieval period, sometimes SciFi or fantasy. My Kindle is overflowing and I have "real" books on my nightstand, the coffee table, the kitchen table, and on the piano. Books, books, everywhere.(less)

I have just started research on another book that will be related to Battle Scars, but won't be part of the series. It will focus on the Robin Hood tale. I'll be publishing a short story prequel to Men of the Cross, featuring Sir Stephan, in Fall 2018. And I hope to write a couple more short stories. (less)
