When I was ten, I fell in love with an anime series. It was a space opera spanning three human generations, a saga revealed over 85 consecutive episodes and four months of after-school TV. Watching Robotech was a spiritual experience for me. I still remember how high I felt after watching the 85th episode for the first time. How many pleasures in life are better than a well-executed drama?
Because of that experience, I decided I wanted to be a storyteller when I grew up and hoped I could someday inspire others as that show did for me. As things turned out, I have spent most of my life exploring religious and metaphysical questions, while writing a lot on the side. In recent years, I have decided to get back around to my heart's desire when I was a boy: Telling the big story.
My novel "The Black God's War" is a dramatic epic fantasy, and an homage to Homer with a multicultural flavor. It's an original story in which I also tip my cap to the Greek dramatists of old. My novella-length preview of the novel is currently available, with the full novel planned for release as an e-book and print book in May, 2011. You can follow my blog, "Moses and Dionysus Walk Into a Bar ..." at http://ScienceFictionFantasy.net.
I invite you to read a sample from my epic story and more than anything, I hope you'll enjoy it and feel inspired by it to pursue your own passion.
