My writing journey began in 1979 with a concept that mixed fantasy, science fiction, and superheroes. I was too young then to know what to do with the idea, so I set it aside for a while. After numerous learning opportunities, including a failed comic book publishing venture, I retired that concept and began work on other ideas. A few years ago, I realized that the way to go was indie publishing. I had always hoped the day would come where I didn't have to try to find the "next big thing" unicorn that traditional publishers demanded. With indie publishing, success is measured differently. You have a chance to find your own audience, and it doesn't have to happen overnight. I've spent the last few years preparing for this indie publishing gig. I'm a speculative fiction fan, mostly science fiction and fantasy, so that's what I intend to start out with.

Over time, Hammer…

I Don’t Understand The Title

I’ve seen some comments in reviews and heard questions from beta readers that boil down to: “I don’t understand the title.” When I started outlining the Rimes trilogy, I had the source material (comic book scripts, short stories, the setting bible). I thought three books was the sweet spot for the story, but I didn’t…
