Living quietly in a Minneapolis suburb, I have been writing the Harmony of the Othar Saga in various incarnations for more years than I am willing to admit. A story which began in college has, after many years, reached fruition with my first novel, Heart of Hauden. During the intervening years, I have helped raise my daughter, Katja, with my wife, Ann, worked in the information technology field, primarily as a database administrator, and received the support of friends and family to write as time permitted.

Harmony of the Othar Saga historical material, Parts 1-12. Blonhaft’s parents find themselves caught in the intricacies of House Triumon as the Houses scramble to confront the Dasyu invasion at Torbod. Join a young Avanian as she begins weaving the webs of intrigue that binds her fate to the House of Northmon.
The Darkening has awakened whispers long silent on Hauden, yet the grasping tendrils of prejudice threaten to choke the voices of harmony before they can take root. The long struggle to unify the Houses and the Nations has failed. The heavy voice of discord soaks the soil with a drowning blood, and deafened by a killing bloodlust, new threats creep across Hauden unheard.
The short peace between the Houses and the Nations is ending. The rekindling of the eternal fires has awakened the Othar, but the flame of prejudice still burns, threatening to consume Hauden in a conflagration of blood. All must unify so the Othar can speak with one voice, for only with the harmony of one voice can the stasis of Oseronni be broken, restoring the natural cycles of life and death.
