My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic.

My transition from the end of one project to the beginning of another lasted nine hours, enough time for sleep and breakfast. I don’t take writing/editing vacations unless I have no choice. No doubt this sounds like amazing dedication, but … Continue reading
I’m close to wrapping up the first draft of Stealing Light and remain astonished at how the story has morphed time and time again. The core plot, the one I intended to write from the beginning, remains, but the emphasis … Continue reading
