From the Author
At its heart, The Forever Gate is about a man haunted by something that happened to his family, and how he comes to terms with it. He learns not to be so self-centered, and that there are larger problems beyond himself. The story is set in a far future that seems to resemble the middle ages.
What has been the most rewarding part about creating this story?
Definitely the knowledge that I'm bringing a new world to life, and sharing it with others. I love sharing my deepest thoughts and insights with readers, stripping away everything to show them who I am at the core, minus all the social masks and pretenses. I want the readers to get in my head a little bit, and see what kind of twisted thoughts and ideas are floating around in there!
