Veteran Marine, lawman, and graduate of NYT Bestselling author Tracy Hickman's online workshop called the "Scribe's Forge."
I've always had a deep love of speculative fiction, particularly epic fantasy and science fiction adventures. I am so humbled and grateful for the chance to appear on your bookshelf, that I'm going to share a little bit of what you might find on mine. I grew up playing Dungeons and Dragons and reading Tracy Hickman, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Lloyd Alexander, and Ann McCaffrey. Later I dug in to Robert Jordan, R.A Salvatore, M.R. Mathias, John Locke, Orson Scott Card, Robert Aspirin, Isaac Asimov, Joseph Lallo, and Brian Rathbone.
Some of my favorite works are The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Wheel of Time, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Ender's Game series.Â Though I've not read the books, I'm a huge fan of the Star Wars and Star Trek movie series'.Â I am also partial to reading Clive Cussler, CJ Box, Brad Thor, and Tom Clancy.
My future projects include a contemporary thriller series in the style of Bourne and Bond, a series of biographies of not-so-well known or loved (but influential nonetheless) Americans for children, a brand new fantasy series, 18th Century American Frontier fiction, and a series of Christian themed short stories.
How am I going to get all that done? Some of it already is. Stay tuned and thank you for taking the time to explore the wild imaginings. I'm a Dragon Highlord in my own mind!
