Meet the Author

Born of gypsy parents in a small Romanian town in the shadows of the Transylvanian Alps, Ron began writing fiction at the beginning of this sentence. Um, is there time for a do-over? In the Year of Our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty five, and in Albuquerque, NM, the very corazon you might say, of the Land of Enchantment, Ron was born. He started writing after he read Tolkien’s 'Lord of the Rings'. I mean, right after. It was like he was abcessed. Er, obsessed. Along with Conan stories by various people, including Robert E. Howard, of course, Tolkien proved to be an unavoidable inspiration. The twists and turns of his life, especially in the last 10 years, have colored his writing with both humor, sorrow and, he hopes, heart.


In addition to promoting his short stories, 'A Cheerful Smoke for the Dead,' 'Child of Chaos' and 'Beneath a Vengeful Sun,' he is busy shopping a full length novel called 'Belt of the Wolf: A Tale of the Shining Lands.'
