There's an argument among Fantasy writers, and readers too, as to whether the rule "Write what you know" applies. I'm firmly of the "Write what you know" school; in my humble opinion, there is as much to be "known" about Fantasy as there is any other genre. My stories feature a lot of sword-fighting, camping and horse-riding, all of which I do indeed know enough about to write on.

ABOUT MY BOOKS:
Akurite Empire is a trilogy. While each book is a complete story in its own right, reading all three in sequence will be much more fun than reading one or two in random order.
Romancing The Sword is a quintet (quintology?) set five years prior to the events of Akurite Empire and covering much of the back story. It is a massive epic and intended to be read as such; the story-arcs overlap from one book to another.
Then there are the Sorcha stories... These are Fantasy Erotica, and as such feature much higher sexual content than my other books. They also cross over the plots of other books, presenting a different perspective on events as detailed in the main series.
The Lord Protector is a trilogy picking up directly after Akurite Empire.
Book one of any of these series is a good place to start.
Anonymous & Sifu are comedies, and though they feature the character of Sifu Dansac, both can be enjoyed individually. Sifu's Kung Fu Secrets, despite being written in the style of a demented Chinaman, contains real martial arts. Don't try this stuff, you'll hurt people. It's written in the style of a mad Chinaman so that no one will take it seriously.
I've been writing for about ten years; I have a large back-catalogue that will be presented here as I complete final editing of each book.

Samuel Z. Jones is the author to Romancing The Sword Book 3 Sins of the Father. Mr Jones definitely has a great imagination and a good voice in his story telling. It is also evident from this book that the guy has played video games which is something I mean as a compliment. The book was a good one and I am definitely intrigued to read the next.
In the book DeSilva has finally found his father, Montesinos DeKellia. It is a somewhat touching reunion. Anyway, they are in the land of Hrinor where everything is a form of narcotic. That was interesting to me. Still, even though they are in Far Hrinor where everyone is at peace and there is no wars, probably because everyone is always stoned and way too happy-yay for Utopia!-DeSilva has to leave with DeKellia and the crew.
Daricia is still in civil war and and the Queen Rathe has proven she is insane. I have a feeling I know who Kam Dashien might be but I won’t let on. I want to see if Sabra ever gets the armor removed though I find it ironic that she is clad in armor in this quintet so far that she wants to desperately get out of, and yet in the Akurite Empire trilogy she dons the armor she wears proudly.
The action scenes were intense and I enjoyed them. Sometimes it reminded me of playing video games. That was an interesting moment to be drawn into nostalgia. I actually pictured two of the battle scenes in this book as if I was playing a Final Fantasy video game. It was pretty cool, I must say.
I rate Book 3 of Romancing The Sword Sins of the Father by Samuel Z. Jones and 8 out of 10. Please pick up the book today! You are guaranteed to be entertained! Make sure you start with the first book in the quintet though. There is more to this book as well, but like always you will just have to read it for yourself. It is worth every penny.
