Within the fiery crucible of the abyss of time I was conceived. From that sticky, and unwashed oblivion emerged the man that clawed his way to the bottom rung of the ladder of life. From there, only up was the clear choice, and it is to that second rung that I pulled myself up to. Through heroic trials and burnt offerings, a muse came to mind, and with it the passion to put ink to paper. Unfortunately, skill did not follow, and again I scampered from inspiration to jarring reality, barely clinging to the rung. That's when hard work, divine intervention, and blind luck came together to shape I the lump of clay into what I think to be an author.

But, it is not up to I to determine the outcome of all my hard work. It is up to the reader - for

In the World of Hyboria (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: Book 1: The wizard Ottin'bar is bent upon conquest. He has murdered, tortured, and stolen his way into power. Now he marches to battle with an army of the dead. In his possession is a staff of magic that bore a curse, a curse that landed on the heads of two Cimmerians who were paid with poison, and abandoned. Maybe it was fate, or the will of the gods, or just good planning on some mortals behalf, but the two barbarians find an ally in another wizard - Grimface. This wizard harbors a deep desire to see Ottin'bar undone, and to accomplish this, he will travel to the ends of Hyboria to secure the pieces of an ancient amulet that has the power necessary to unseat Ottin'bar from his quest of domination. The three stand at the front, while an army of thousands bear down on them. Can they stem the tide? Can they right the wrongs? Can they survive? Book 2: Grimface the wizard has a secret. The greatest magic that he's ever held, he will give up to a watery grave. But wait! There are others who want that magic. From a distant island a Prince has turned upon his King and gained control of an ancient sea monster. He will rule, if his fate remains unchanged. The Cimmerians and Grimface must travel a patchwork of ancient roads, some that lead to his past, and some that lead to oblivion. The problem is, he has no choice in the matter - his fate is sealed. Along the way he will find a connection to his roots, and the thread of his undoing. But, no being last forever, even an immortal one.
The Lantern of Dern Blackhammer (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: The night air is crisp and clear as Ford and his father walk home from the theater. Near the park, an assassin strikes murdering the elder and plunging his son into a dark world of intrigue and deception. The elf city of Moore will never be the same, as Ford races against time to prevent a world war. His nemesis, a human who has a fondness for blue and murder, and seeks the one weapon sure to place him as King of the world – the Lantern of Dern Blackhammer; a device forged to win a war between mortals and gods. Its power is awesome, devastating…or at least that’s what the legends say. Ford is recruited by a secret organization sworn to protect the city of Moore against all enemies. Now his mission, get to the artifact first, steal it, and deliver it safely back to Moore. To accomplish this task he is sent to enlist the help of five fellow agents whose circumstances make them excellent candidates for such a mission. Two are cursed, one’s an outcast, one delivers justice, and one must mend his destiny. This motley group sets out on a perilous journey across the continent, to cities both ancient and glorious, where a dark lord buried a priceless treasure in a tomb of magic.
