Travel is part of who I am, and a big part of my writing. When someone reads my writing I want them to feel like they are experiencing a real world, with fleshed out cultures, complete with maps, languages, and histories.
Living in Japan I was inspired to write Leda and the Samurai one very hot summer as I walked through the Tanabata decorations. I felt like one might be able to step through a door and end up somewhere magical... It updates bi-weekly, and also has a companion podcast, Historical Fantasy, which I co-host all about the real history and mythology featured in Leda.
My first novel, Orope - the White Snake, is fantasy rooted in Bronze Age history. I've always loved ancient Mediterranean cultures and often felt disappointed by how few novels ventured into this territory. It's exciting to mix two of my great passions, writing and history, together. Orope is available in paperback, digital, or audiobook wherever books are sold.
