What can I say about myself? I was born in Ohio, but grew up in Holyoke in the 70's and half of the 80's, when computers were still in their infancy. As such, most my youthful free time was taken up reading, or using my imagination to go exploring.
My first exposure to fantasy actually came from my chemistry teacher, who unique teaching method left a lasting impression. He also ran the school's "Dungeon's and Dragons" club. That exposure unlocked something inside me, creating
a deeper passion for the art of writing.
I am the type of person that when he puts his mind to something, it gets done. I went on to get a computer science degree. I hold a Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson License. I've held many jobs, did many things, explored a small
part of the world in my travels, and yet, I've always kept that passion for the written word.
I have many passions. I explore game worlds such as those created by Sony Online Entertainment and others. I enjoy the challenge of board and thinking games like chess or Sudoku. As, if my health allows, I enjoy a stroll through the woods
for even passion is stronger than pain sometimes.
As I go on, trying to get published, I hope you can journey with me as we explore the worlds I intend to create for you.
If anything, it will be an interesting ride.

Smashwords book reviews by John DeJordy
- The Chronicles of Gan: The Thorn
on Feb. 26, 2011
I finally managed to find time to sit down and read this wonderful book, and I regret that I put it off for so lone. I was very happy that I spent the time to read. As a first book of a series, Mr. Fraley lays a wonderful foundation to and even greater novel.
The imagery used allowed you to see every scene. You follow the characters on their journey and feel their emotions through how the story is told.
I could go through and talk about the plot of the story as others have done, but I feel it was more important to talk about the quality of the story.
Yes, it makes you think. Yes, it makes you feel. It does everything you'd expect from a seasoned writer, not a new one.
I for one am looking forward to more from this talented artist.
