Having been published in several print magazines and online journals, his most recent stories center on the saga of a distant planet, home to "The Withered Land".
At the heart of an eons-old star system, it is the Last Place in Creation. Under dual suns, one a red giant and the other a blue dwarf, it is a world of Fallen Kings, nomadic mutant tribes, alien monsters and haunted, dead cities. It is a place where Time is broken.
This is the place the Knight D'Spayr calls home and, in order, these are its stories...
1) D'Spayr, A Knight in the Withered Land
2) The Traveler in Red: Warlords of the Withered Land
3) The Withered Land, The Empire Falls: Hell's Avatar
4) The Withered Land: Dragons and Marauders
5) Mune'stahr and Pylott: Hellmarrow, a tale of The Ventriculum
6) The Withered Land, The Empire Falls: Abyssium
7) Nygeia, Princess of the Withered Land: Palace of A Thousand Devils
And coming soon:
8) D'Spayr: The Soldiers of Torment
9) Mune'stahr and Pylott: DaurkRyft, a tale of The Ventriculum
