Can Drake Morrass, Keelin Stillwater, and Elaina Black overcome Sarth, The Five Kingdoms, and themselves long enough to forge a throne?



The good folk over at Fantasy Book Review have selected Where Loyalties Lie to proceed into the finals of this year’s Self Published Fantasy Blog Off (SPFBO). It’s going to be rough seas and well armed galleons from here on out for my pirates, but I have my fingers crossed they’ll sail on through to even greater renown. The quality of entries in this year has been astounding and you can find out more about the SPFBO, and the current finalists over on Mark Lawrence’s blog.


Where Loyalties Lie is available now! It’s full of pirates, sea beasties, magic, vengeful deities, and naval battles. You can pick it up from Amazon here or most other big retailers. It’s also entered into 2017’s #SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off) in Fantasy Book Review’s group. You can find out more about the SPFBO here, and read FBR’s review here.




The Ties that Bind trilogy is back! Re-released on June 21st 2017, all three books are available now and have some spiffy new covers. Check out where it all began with this Wild West inspired fantasy series complete with kleptomaniac witch hunters, paranoid sellswords, and a legendary sword master.


I have decided to end my publishing agreement with Ragnarok Publications and take my books back to self publishing. This has been a very big and very difficult decision. You can find out more on my blog page.
