Hello Everyone.

If you're interested, I have a Goodreads Giveaway of 3 autographed paperbacks for my debut, Lords of Deception (ends January 7).

It was praised as a "Top 5 novel of the year...One of the best fantasy debuts I've read in a while" by Liviu Suciul, former co-editor of Fantasy Book Critic, late last year. Kirkus Reviews called it a “visceral epic fantasy with plenty of political intrigue.” Kirkus and other reviewers have compared my debut’s depth and interesting characters to Game of Thrones. If you miss the giveaway, you can also try my writing with 2 FREE novelettes from my website.

More about me? I’m the creator of the Earthpillar world of novels and short stories (half-tales, I call them), which are set on an Earth that evolved differently. New continents and seas, dozens of distinct societies, and materials like some metals have alternative properties. The world of Earthpillar spans from prehistory to the steam age, but all stories are connected in some way.

I call my writing “epic adventure” because it has flavors of fantasy, action & adventure, historical fiction, and steampunk. I enjoy blending adventure and political intrigue, fictional continents and materials, and customized medieval and early modern technology. I like to think of Earthpillar as a mix of the swashbuckling adventure and old world verbiage of Alexander Dumas, the detail and depth of Tolkien (but with gray characters), and the political intrigue of GRR Martin, with my own intense interest in custom materials, machines, and cultures.

My personal reading interests are broad, from medieval history and philosophy, to astronomy and particle physics. I take an interdisciplinary approach to writing that is influenced by these topics and extensive travel, degrees in history and political science, and a touch of engineering experience.

As the owner of Loremark Publishing, I work with freelance editors, proofreaders, and illustrators to bring my novels and other writings to life. I opted for this middle route between traditional and self-publishing because I wanted to ensure high quality books but also retain full control of my writing career. And now, after about a decade of writing and editing, I’m in the middle of a “rapid release” of three novels, the final of which launches next month.

Thanks for reading!
