Biography

Greetings, everyone

Welcome to my humble little page where I am building my self-publishing business. Ever since I was in grade school I loved the art of writing. As a compulsive TV/movie/book addict, I always wanted to tell my own stories. So I started working on my first novel way back in high school, several really, but none that pleased me.

Finally, I picked a story I believed would connect with people and also test my limits as a writer. Thus, my first book "Reverence" was born. Ever since I discovered the wonders of self-publishing, I realized we live in an age where authors do not have to beg at the feet of big publishers to see the light of day. Though it takes A LOT of hard work and dedication (and unmentionable amounts of coffee), I find writing my stories probably the most fulfilling experience in my life.

This page will detail my works as they are published, starting with "Reverence Volume 1" which was published early 2016 but was re-released in December. My books touch on a lot of topics that I find relevant in our world today, among them war, poverty, political apathy, family, all wrapped in engrossing sci-fi epics with plenty of action and touches of humor.

That being said, let the books speak for themselves and check them out.
Please like, share, and thank you for all the support guys!

Law of Sacrilege
A century after two continents came together, smoke is on the horizon. A fierce cold has set in, driving hunters further from their hunting grounds. Foreigners hoard the land and sites of ancient and revered magic. The knight Sir Longavian has been tasked with maintaining the fragile peace. He was the man who initially brought Sebel and his homeland, Jingseh, together in the first place. With his family beside him, Sir Longavian will take his stand without fear and a heart full of hope. At the same time, the Mystic Order remains a bridge between the common folk and the divine leader of the southern Sebelians, called the Asum of Giganato. This religious leader has come forth with a revelation: this occupation by outsiders can only end with war. As terrible as it is, the chaos just might give a young boy the chance to ascend into greatness. Namu Pyri was exiled at birth because of his mutant eyes. Eyes that some say could bring about great destruction. Beset by his own tribulations and longings, Namu sets forth to seize his destiny at all cost.
Pantheon - Genesis Arc
Across the world known as Avah, there are vast oceans and six continents. Though they once thrived, the Hollow Wars threw everything into chaos. One man, wise as he was fierce, rose to bind the broken nations together. Hailing from the northern-most continent of Ilea, this man was granted the title of Prime Overseer. Under his tutelage, the Hollow Wars came to an end. Through blood-soaked fields and much destruction, the world was remade in the name of reclaimed normality. The Harmonious Union was born, a binding agreement that brought the nations closer than ever. But no peace is everlasting. Vah, who watches over Avah and all her children, has spoken of a great unraveling. Something that will be felt across all the continents and beyond. The end was spoken of only in whispers until it became something real as a blade to the throat.
