A chance meeting at a SciFi-Fantasy convention leads Jared to the rescue and fitful romancing of Rana, descendant of the ancient Sea Elf pirates. Their city was destroyed as a consequence their siding with evil in a great war thousands of years ago. Before she and her sister can return and reclaim the land they feel is rightfully theirs, they need to escape a mad preacher trying to kill them. In their world however, another people is casting a covetous eye on the city as well and few have a worse reputation for theft and butchery than the Tarkona. With the aid of Arribus, an elf and one of the "Old Ones," and Handir, the Black Elf of Brunea (a land that borders the Tarkona and Rana's city), and the queen of Brunea herself, they fight to stay alive while reclaiming and rebuilding this once famous sea faring city.
I'm a fantasy writer...among several OTHER things! (See below) The subject of my musings are Elves who live, work, and wander among us today...and on occasion interact with us. (Of course, there are more than a few Dwarves and goblins as well!) At times we are their adversaries, and at other times ...we are their lovers. The actions takes place both in our world and theirs, many times at the SAME time!
My characters are real people I encounter as I walk around in our world, at gas stations, grocery stores, and Sci Fi/Fantasy conventions. The action takes off from there, though I never know where it will end. It's usually somewhere I NEVER expected, but the adventure is ALWAYS worth the ride! Warning though, there ARE some "bawdy" bits, because I deal with real life!
I come with some unique and varied experience that winds its way through my books. I started "adult" life (it's all relative!) as a musician. From there I went into law enforcement, ministry, the military and amateur astronomy, Other hobbies include ancient and medieval history (especially military history), arms and armor, archeology, and firearms, with a good dose of paranormal interest thrown in. (I am also a VERY frustrated pilot!)
I've been married thirty four years (AND counting!)...to the SAME wonderful, long-suffering woman! She has given me six children, equally divided between male and female...who have blessed us with seven grandchildren (so far!). I write long-hand, in something that resembles a cross between hieroglyphics, cuneiform, and some yet undiscovered script. My wife willingly and (usually) cheerfully translates and transcribes it into something you can actually read.
I would LOVE to hear from you! Let me know what think of my site and my world. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org more
