Author has written 50 stories for Fantasy, Nature, Life, Love, Friendship, General, Religion, War, Mythology, and Horror.

Not a lot to tell. I am a father of 4 who likes to write for fun. I love to read therefore I love to write. My interests include Medieval forestry practices, 17th century alchemical science, the analysis of wind patterns to forecast future weather, playing my music on big circles of wax, answering the call of the wild, and scrambling on granitic plutons.

I am usually willing to trade chapter-for-chapter reviews so if you find your feedback lacking PM me and we might be able to set something up.

Cheers!

Soldier Jack reviews
The concluding installment! A sequel to Jack Simple and Jack in the Wald, but can be read as a standalone. Crushed between two warring Kingdoms, thrust into the midst of a bloody frontier war, Jack does everything he must to protect his family, his liberty, and his home. Rated 'T' for violence and suggestive themes. Reviews, as always, would be most appreciated!

Now settled in a new life, he encounters an ancient force in the woods that is beyond his understanding. One thing is clear: this force has laid claim to Jack, and it will not stop until it owns him. Suggestive themes (nothing explicit). Story complete! Please R&R!

Jack Simple reviews
Jack is a Woodcutter. Eidna is a Housemaiden. Fate draws them together, but Fate is complicated. A human story that takes place in a fantasy world, my goal is to show the magic that resides within the life of the common, everyday people that fantasy so often ignores. Sexually suggestive themes, but nothing explicit. Story is complete! I would love to hear your thoughts!
