Latest news - 1/8/2017: First Lesson has been nominated for the 2017 Rhysling Award.
I am a fantasy and science fiction author who has also committed poetry. Indeed I've spent most of the past few years writing The Sign of the Dragon, an epic fantasy presented in poems. The Sign of the Dragon tells the story of King Xau, chosen by a dragon to be ruler, and what it costs him. The first part of Xau's story may be read in Crowned.My short story credits include Analog, F&SF, Interzone, Lightspeed, The Year's Best Fantasy, and the Year's Best SF, and I have two short story collections: Ebb Tides and Other Tales and Winter Shadows and Other Tales. I've won the Elgin Award and the Rhysling Award for my poetry, which has appeared in places ranging from American Scholar, to Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
