Meet the Author

I am a writer of fantasy/adventure novels and a sometime cartoonist. A Minnesota native, I became interested in writing as a creative outlet a number of years ago, concentrating my efforts on short stories and tales for young children. Always an avid reader, my tastes include an eclectic variety of genres and styles that encompass storytellers both past and present. As a writer, I feel an affinity for action and adventure, and love fantasy for the freedom it offers in creating alternate worlds. My direct influences include the pulp fantasy of E.R. Burroughs and the historical fiction of Bernard Cornwell. Sanyel is the first novel of a projected adventure/fantasy series. Disrupter is the second, and a third is in the works. I have also recently published a collection of children's tales.
