About The Author

I am a writer of historical fantasy fiction and the author of Enoch’s Device, a fast-paced medieval adventure steeped in history, mythology, and mysteries from a dark and magical past.

Since the day I learned of Robin Hood and a king named Arthur who pulled a sword from a stone, I’ve been fascinated with medieval tales. About the same time, I discovered hobbits and experienced the awe of a rebel blockade runner being chased by a Star Destroyer, and from that point on a love of fantasy and adventure became ingrained in my DNA.

By middle school, rarely a week went by without dreams of dragons or elves or unsheathing swords like Stormbringer from imaginary scabbards at my side. And by college, after an education in humanities and the classics, my appreciation for history and my love of fantasy were forever entwined.

When I’m not concocting diabolical plots or writing medieval battle scenes, I’m training to become a Chopped Champion on Food Network or helping clients in my law practice of more than twenty years. I’m also a husband, a father, and a herder of two mischievous rescue dogs who lack names as cool as Ghost or Grey Wind. But I’d take them beyond the Wall in a heartbeat.

I’m always working on my next story, even if I never know how it ends until I get there. After all, that’s the fun of it.

"... never know how it ends until I get there." Joseph, my creative writing
teacher, the late BRUCE ARMSTRONG [author of SABLE ISLAND], would say
that THAT'S - a good sign!

Wow, you've always had quite the imagination. Perhaps a future post could
be about one of those DREAMS from so long ago.

"helping clients" That choice of words... also a good sign! :)
