My Fiction
November 07, 2018

There was a time when I was confident I would be a bestselling novelist by the time I turned 40. That date looms, and it's clear those early dreams were either unrealistic or too easily sidetracked by life. But I have written some fiction over the years, and a list of the stuff you can see for yourself (a tiny percentage of what I've actually written) is on this page. I'll be sure to add to it if more stuff becomes available.

Defiant Light (Novel)

The world of Karemia has been shrouded in darkness for more than a hundred years, the victim of a spell cast by a desperate wizard. In the years that followed, the monarchy granted new social status to wizards, and gave them vital roles in society.

Now, however, wizards in general are viewed as dangerous members of society, and are kept in sheltered portions of the city, used for the very magical ability many city residents fear. Light wizards are the most commonly exploited group of wizards. The light they possess is sucked from their bodies and turned into decorative lamps.

Soon, no light wizards will remain. The cities will have nothing with which to combat the night stalkers, horrible creatures lurking just beyond the safety and light of city walls.

Enter Nigel. Hes a young light wizard, nearing the age when he will lose his magic forever. Except this is one light wizard that intends to defy the odds. Spurred on by the words of his grandfather, he sets out on a quest to change the world in which he lives.

Nigel wont be alone. Along the way he meets with a daring princess and a street child with a heart the size of a city. Together, they venture out into the darkness beyond city walls. There, they find new adventures that challenge the way they view the world. And, as they soon discover, the truest light comes from the inside.
