Author has written 2 stories for General.

I read and write because I can't not. I've been trying to put my idle thoughts and fancies into stories since I was seven. After discovering the computer in my dad's 'office', I wrote a two-hundred page "novel" when I was ten (and yes, I still cringe when I try to reread it). Since then, I have been completely and utterly hooked on creating people and places and worlds that I can play with simply by touching my fingers to computer keys.

I love having good stories rec'd to me. I'm a particular fan of 'hidden nobility' and the like. You may see some of that reflected in my writing.

Drop me a line if you love it / hate it. I'm open to critique, and enjoy having my grammar nitpicked. After all, there's always room for improvement.

A note:

Oceana is my newest project. I started off with the intention of writing a novel in 2013 . . . and succeeded. The idea, however, grew large enough for at least one sequel (probably two). They will be forthcoming.

A Flash of Gold and Fire is the first book in the Oceana series. It's a land-and-sea-romping fantasy epic in a unique world with its own history, culture, and political intrigue. The characters are all tied together through chain of command, family, common history, marriage, friendship, and so on. It chronicles the journey of two brilliant, brave, and powerful men (and their compatriots) as war looms on the horizon. It's got a bit of everything: hidden nobility, good vs. evil, forbidden love, swashbuckling . . . so yes. Some R&Rs would be lovely.

The full summary:

Arden bar Miran, youngest of the House of Stewards, has spent his life running from his father’s memory.

Valory bar Adrianth, second son of the king, has spent his life traveling Oceana and the Eastern World in his father’s name.

But now Oceana is a nation at war. Shadows are spreading from the south. Foul creatures are appearing, some of which were thought to exist only in myth. A nameless evil is pressing upon the borders, its source unknown.

Oceana is a nation at war: but they do not know their enemy by name.

Valory intends to find the source of this evil. Arden strives to find his place. They did not plan on finding one another. Together they take to the high seas of the Armathian Ocean where they struggle with duty, honor, desire, and the mystery of the spreading shadow.

Warnings include:heterosexual and homosexual relationships
(some) wartime violence
(M-rated) sexual content
sailors with potty mouths

Just like everyone else, I appreciate comments very much.

Thanks :)
