There was a time when I was confident I would be a bestselling novelist by the time I turned 40. That number came and went, making it clear those early dreams were either unrealistic or too easily sidetracked by real life. But I have written fiction over the years, and this is a list of what you can buy today. I hope the list will grow considerably in the near future.

Forest Lessons (The Paladin's Assistant: Book One)

A ruthless killer. A logging crew in danger. Can brash young Edmund help a grieving paladin end the reign of terror?

Edmund had it all. Then he made a terrible mistake that could cost him everything. He soon finds himself tagging along to a remote logging camp to help a decorated paladin solve a series of brutal slayings.

John is that paladin. He still hasn't recovered from losing his beloved wife. Babysitting a spoiled military brat hardly seems like the right way to soothe his heartache.

Their investigation reveals just how little the reluctant allies know about life outside city walls. As the body count rises and the allure of a beautiful woman threatens to drive a wedge between them, the two men must put aside their differences and embrace their humanity. Otherwise, all the magic in the world can't save them when the killer comes calling...

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. He's 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 won't 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.
