*** All of my books are now available through if you would like to purchase a printed copy. ***

I live along the front range of the Colorado Rockies with my wife and son. When I am not enjoying the outdoors or spending time with my family, I write fictional novels and short stories. My family is my life, and writing is my passion.

If you enjoyed reading any of my books, please take moment to write a review as it helps other readers find my works.

My latest release:
Dragon Fire: After writing a number of books about dragons for young readers, I felt like exploring something more adult oriented. I know this might not appeal to everyone considering it involves an inter-species relationship, but I wanted to test the limits of love in a short story. (For readers 18+)

Upcoming Books:
The Cave of Secrets: Book 5 of the Dragon Adventure Series. James will learn the truth about the prophecis and be forced to chose between saving his best friend or preserving the last known Fire Dragon eggs. A surprise ending has prompted me to write one more book for the series. Release expected by the end of summer or early fall 2015.

The Lost Dragons of Fire Island: Book 6 of the Dragon Adventure Series. James finds himself lost at sea on a ship trapped in the middle of a raging storm. When the last glimmer of hope has all but faded, something unexpected happens that changes everything.

Under the Full Moon:
A fictional novel about werewolves. Release expected mid 2016.

Book Updates:
Dominant Species has been completely revised to smooth out the writing and remove a few typos.

I have changed some of the covers on my books to meet Amazon's requirements for publication. I was a little sad that I had to replace the first three book covers in the Dragon Adventure Series, but I do think the new covers look more professional and I hope everyone likes them.

I always welcome comments and questions from all my readers and my email is provided below. I know that some typographical errors might slip by myself, or the editors. If you find an error, please feel free to send me an email and I will make an effort to remove the error in the next revision of the book.

P.S. The bio picture is of my son and I heading up the 4x4 road to the top of Mount Antero, Colorado.
