I write the adventures I no longer have.

Suspend disbelief - Have an adventure!

I mostly write about military and para-military forces. That’s what I did for most of my youth. I was a soldier until wounded on an overseas mission, so now I write. There is no subtext in my novels, it’s all about a good, fun read.

I write Speculative Fiction and Comedy

I mostly write science fiction about military or para-military forces, some fantasy, and occasionally humour pieces. I'm Canadian; we spell things a little differently here.

Thorn takes it upon himself to travel into the mountains, far from home, to confront the god. Thorn does not go alone. Churlish, Lilly, and Putt are along to help with their own individual talents.
