Overview

In the 21st Century, the world is filled with industry and technology, and yet still governed by magic. The elves stand in charge of governments, the humans are the masters of technology, and the dwarves are the laborers. Can some rise above the castes? It seems that whatever Owen does, he does at the whim of Konrad Van Esper. But Van Esper is done with him now and the endgame is upon them.

When Konrad Van Esper gains governmental sanctioning to invade dwarf communities, it appears that the world is about to change for the much worse. Owen must rally his friends and neighbors in an effort to stand up against the "new order". But it may already be too late. The troops are already on their way...

...but something else is on its way, too. A dragon has awakened from her slumber to discover that her child is missing. She will fly thousands of miles and let nothing stand between her and the dwarf responsible.

Meet the Author

A child of the movies, I was always consumed by fantastic stories told by others and translated into adventures to be retold by me through the action figure medium. As I grew older, I put the action figures away and moved into the realm of role playing. Though I never outgrew role playing, I certainly don't have the time for it anymore. Since I was eleven years old, I've been pouring almost every ounce of creative energy I have into writing.

I graduated college in 1993 with a degree in computer science. I tried my hand at programming for a couple of years and found it pretty unsatisfying. I later became a partner at a comic book store, where I spent several years. Though it wasn't a financial success, the experience I gained from running the store and the people that I met (many whom I'm still in touch with today) was priceless. After leaving the store, I settled into a career of teaching. I still teach at a public high school in New York. Ironically, I've picked up computer programming again, which is what I mostly teach, peppered with some math courses now and again.

I've been writing the whole time.

I released my first book electronically in 2010. Forty Leap was, and still is, the pinnacle of my writing to date. It was a turning point for me in both style and story building. The Book of Revelations, which was written earlier but released later, was sort of a midway point between the writer I was and the writer I've become. I experimented with a very odd style and a story that employed diverse characters and controversial situations.

In September 2010, I released the first installment of Zombies! It went out for free, the subsequent episodes each priced at 99 cents. Zombies! has been a tremendous success for me and I'm currently working with someone to develop it into a television series.
