Hi there. Thanks for visiting my site!
Enchanters is the product of several years of concepting, world-building, writing, and on occasion, banging my head against a wall. Back when I first started it, the story was quite different as were the characters--many of them didn't even exist or if they did, it was in a very different form. Even Damea looked a bit different. Fun fact: the setting of Damea itself is nearly twenty years old!
On writing and representation
I've always been a huge fan of fantasy and science fiction. Growing up, I was often frustrated that there were not enough of these stories that starred realistic female characters, and even less that depicted LGBTQ representation as normalized.
While I agree that "coming out stories" are hugely important, I believe it is just as important to have queer characters in stories where their motivations, desires, and plot arcs have absolutely nothing to do with their orientation or identity.
I'm a 30-something from California and spend most days as a programmer and most nights writing stories, composing music, playing video games, and directing a game of my own (you'll have to ask me about it if you want to know more)! I love creating
, though I am usually quite shy about sharing the things I create. I am also rather gay and am happily married to a lovely lady who is a lot better at video games than me.
I am on social media, mostly Twitter
, so feel free to follow me there.
Business inquiries, interview requests, fanmail, and other questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or I've got a handy form below you can use, too.
While buying my books is one way to support me, I know there are many who can't afford or can't purchase my books due to reasons out of their control. That's okay!
If you are in a situation where you really want to read my work but are not able to buy Enchanters, send me an email or a private message on social media explaining your situation. I am happy to share the series with you at no cost, though it would be really great if you left me a rating or review afterward! Reviews help me get Enchanters on book lists, which go further to support me down the road.
Any place where you can purchase the book is a good start, but Amazon and Goodreads tend to be the most visible.
If you are a book reviewer or blogger and would like to read the Enchanters trilogy, I am happy to send you the series at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
I do ask that you tell me a bit about yourself and the kinds of books you enjoy reviewing.
