Author has written 4 stories for Fantasy, and Fantasy.

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.

--George Eliot

My passion in life revolves around a set of five books comprising a huge fantasy story, of which I have recently finished the fourth. What's posted here are mostly smaller works set earlier in the timeline of my story-world.

If you want to know more about me, feel free to drop by my LiveJournal. I've learned a lot through people's feedback--comments and crits are most welcome!


Poser 6 is bad for both one's blood pressure and one's wallet, but I've finally made the fledgling protagonist of Hope's Passage. Enjoy=)

High time I got rid of that 2009 date! Just had to let folks know I'm still alive. I have finally finished the fifth and final Geren novel! My next focus will be on finishing a side-novel I've been working on, but since it's connected to the climax of the Geren books, it won't be going up here.

Most of what I plan to write in the future is too involved with the workings of my five Geren books to be posted here, or I wish to keep it secure for future publication possibilities. This place has served its purpose, though I don't plan to remove this page completely. Who knows, someday I might surprise myself and post a novella or short story again.

At this point, Hope's Passage will be staying up. That is because it is a prerequisite of sorts for the next set of books I hope to start in 2012. If you're curious, do drop by my Triune pageand check out the publicly-accessible portions. If you've read and commented on all of Hope's Passage, then you're eligible to join, if so inclined, and more than welcome!

Thanks to everyone who visited and left feedback!
