Iconic words for a humble beginning. This first post marks my official foray into sharing my work as a fantasy author with the world. I hope you enjoy it.
Since I reading R.A. Salvatore’s Homeland the week it was released I knew I wanted to write fantasy. My two loves in literature, fantasy, and urban fantasy seem at odds in the world of stiff genres. In my mind, they are essentially the same. One focuses on buildings amazing worlds, and the other on taking characters on adventures in a familiar world that has much to show that has never been seen. The characters are the heart of any story, especially in fantasy. Whether fighting a dragon or sailing the high seas in search of pirates, the way a character is changed is the heart of a good story.
This site is a place to display my work, but also an outlet for me to discuss a few of my favorite things. I will review and share opinions about books I read here, and I also want to share some resources that other writers may find useful. Articles and podcasts that I think any author would find indispensable will fill this blog.
As an aspiring fantasy author my real-world heroes are R.A. Salvatore, Brandon Sanderson, and Jim Butcher. You may see shadows of their work in my own writing, but I hope to present a voice that also does some things differently. The beauty of fantasy writing is seeing the heart of the writer unfold beneath of veneer of magic and mystery.
