Tell us a little something about your business...

The Soul Forge Saga
My stories are quest driven fantasies that take place in a fantastical world full of eclectic characters, wonderful and oft times, scary creatures, and breathtaking scenery.

When was your lightbulb moment?

I began writing when I was 9 years old, a bored child during summer vacation looking for something to do. I loved Hardy Boy books, so I decided to write my own. As I grew up, my interests changed. Seeing Star Wars in ’77 inspired me to write sci-fi, but in the early 80’s I read Sword of Shannara, by Terry Brooks, and Lord Foul’s Bane, by Stephen R. Donaldson, and I’ve been hooked on fantasy ever since.
