C. M. Skiera currently lives in San Diego, California, a long way from Michigan, where he grew up, graduated from Michigan State University, and started a career as an environmental engineer. He and his wife are devoted dog-lovers who share their home with two rescue Chihuahuas.

Crimson & Cream is C. M. Skiera's debut epic fantasy novel. He started writing Crimson & Cream in 1999, and after many twists and turns, 13 drafts, plenty of rejections, the arrival of the 21st Century and the advent of online self-publishing, the ebook was self-published in 2012. After that, Mirrors & Mist (2015) and then Warlock & Wyrm (2017) followed as the second and third books of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy.

Hi Pat!

Happy Holidays to you, too Pat! I am currently working with my editor on book 3 of the trilogy; Warlock & Wyrm. Our target is to finish by the end of January 2017. Then I will do a final polish and shoot for getting it to beta readers by March. I'll let you know when the beta is ready. Hoping to publish by June 2017, or a little sooner, if things go smoothly.

Cheers!(less)

Since the release of Warlock & Wyrm last fall, I've been working on a new fantasy novel. The latest book is still untitled, but will be a stand-alone novel set in a different world than that of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy. Though I'd also like to continue the adventures of Jetsam, Seryn, and the gang someday, I'm interested in taking the lessons and experience from the trilogy and experim...

Entertaining short books in a series. You can easily read one a day.

If you like period novels, you will appreciate this series. It contains exciting historical stories, not raunchy romances. Liken it to Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Downton Abbey."
