Hello all! I'm a 40-something ex-lawyer in NYC who finally bit the bullet, sat down, and churned out that fantasy novel I've been dreaming of for the last 30 years or so. (Well, not THIS fantasy novel, but A fantasy novel.) It's been finished since January of 2018, though I continue to tinker with it.

I can't express how thrilled I am with the reception THE CURSEWRIGHT'S VOW has gotten -- not just the Watty, but the number of people who've dropped by to offer their thoughts, critiques, and opinions.

It's a dark story, and an adult one, but it's not porn with plot or a gore-streaked celebration of violence. Still, parts of it are pretty raw, and you should be aware of that if you're of a sensitive disposition.

Originally, I had only planned to post THE CURSEWRIGHT'S VOW. With its modest success, a sequel and other material should show up in the not-too-distant future. More on that as it comes.

Since I'm on the older side of people here and have been writing since the age of 6, I'm more than happy to help people out if you need it. I'm not a bad grammarian, so if you need help with punctuation or phrasing, feel free to ask. I'm active in the @Rebel_Town book club, and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Thanks for stopping by!

Well I don't know what's going on with the rankings (does anyone?), but I'm delighted to see that CURSEWRIGHT'S VOW is at 13 in #darkfantasy ... which seems like an appropriate number for the genre...
