I currently live in southern Louisiana with my wife and children, though I grew up in Michigan, graduating high school in Mason MI. I also spent time living in North Carolina, Florida, and California during my time in the United States Marine Corps. I have always dreamed of publishing my work, and seeing it on a bookshelf in a store, however with the huge shift to digital media I finally realized that the dream was in my own hands. I tell my children that they can live their dreams, and I believe in leading by example.
I enjoy writing across several different genres from poetry, to children's stories, to full epic fantasies. Creating new characters for my readers to connect with, new worlds for them to immerse themselves in, and new ideas to wrap their minds around is an amazing if not humbling experience. I hope that all my readers can take something away from each of my books, and enjoy reading them just as much as I have enjoyed putting them in print.

This has been on my to read list forever, but I've finally read it and have to report that it's rather good. It reminds me of the Drizzt novels by R A Salvatore, in that life in this world is essentially awful, but the hero here, Gnak, born into a brutal clan of orcs, experiences a revelation when he meets and gets to know other species that he has previously held in contempt.
There is a lot of brutality and gore in the story, but not gratuitous violence. The action is fast paced and absorbing and leaves you wanting to read the next instalment once you've finished. I can heartily recommend it and, as it's free, you've no excuse for not trying it, have you?
