Realms of Terswood

A fantasy novel

Book Two Progress

I had a wildly productive staycation this last week and book two’s word count doubled. Alishia’s storyline is mapped out and mostly written; Lone’s is coming together nicely. And poor Dehset, he’s in way over his head. It’s looking like a three part book with, like Realms, a few Tales chapters at the end toContinue reading “Book Two Progress”

Character Spotlight: Dehset

The second book in The Chronicler’s Awakening series introduces a number of new characters but one of my favorites is Dehset Tekin, a first year crystal mage student of the Royal Academy in Dracon. Born to a poor family, Dehset started at the Academy at eighteen, far older than most. The son of a blacksmithContinue reading “Character Spotlight: Dehset”

The world as the players work together or against each other to meet their goals.

They say it’s infinite, but that isn’t true. Tempus Fa eventually loops back upon itself. Or maybe I’m just terrible with directions.

Archdruid Etharis

A cast of characters, from ancient archmages to the young svarters prince, play their roles in uncovering a centuries-old plot.

About the Author

Author, video gamer, martial artist, programmer

This book started over twenty years ago as a disjointed collection of video game fan fiction, around the same time that I briefly trained in taekwondo. I quit both when my grandmother passed away. More than seventeen years later, in my mid-thirties, I restarted my martial art instruction. As I neared my black belt testing, I thought of what other projects I started and never finished. As with Lone, that was a long list. It took close to three years but I ended up with a story and characters I enjoyed writing about. I have the people and places of Poas in my mind and through the magic of writing, I can invite others to join me there.
