Life for me over the last few years has been marked by change. Before I moved to Switzerland, I had never lived outside of the cozy little town of Huntsville, Alabama. Before I was married, I only wrote and read fantasy. Now as I embrace the European culture, I am trying my hand as a writer at expanding into other genres. The first story I ever wrote, I self published in 2005. The book was called Venashara: Heart of the Dwarves, and while sales were nothing to write home about, it did land me an opportunity to showcase more of my work. Thereafter for a couple of years I worked on the video game "Realms of Torment" (Later, “Realms of Mourning,” and “Realms of Krell”), as the primary lore writer and editor for the Romanian company Neurosoft. Most of what I wrote ended up as game quest material or background lore, and although the game did not last much beyond release, it was another learning experience for me. Now as things are settling down I am once again looking to learn and hone my skills as a writer, and hopefully entertain a few folks along the way.
