I write stories, and sometimes I even like them.

Magic through mirrors, magic that replaces full free will.... These demented fantasy stories explore big questions, from how close are we to a World War III, to what makes a leader--circumstance and opportunity or passion and knowledge?

I like to experiment with words, smashing them together, breaking rules, and just generally asking questions and not entirely answering them. If this is your thing, maybe you'll like what I've got to say.

Below are some pieces of writing that I'm willing to share. I like to think of novels as flexible as Broadway plays: you can change 'em a little bit here, but the skeleton is the same. "There is never a final draft," a mentor once said to me. So for that reason, I cannot guarantee that the words you read here will always be that way.

Regardless, I have a type. Fantasy sneaks into my stories quite often, and more often than not, some angsty romantic subplots. Click the images or titles to read more!

When his walls of isolation are torn down, Kayin is expected to right the wrongs of past leaders. First step: kill the current ruler.

Kayin's quaint village life is heavily disrupted when a woman who can see the future has a vision of Kayin starting a rebellion against the ruler of the world.

But how do you fight an enemy you've never even heard of? At what point do you stop following the directions given to you to make the future happen, and create your own?
