The Punishment of the Gods is an epic fantasy story spanning five books:
The peace and safety of Weldera has long been bound to the fortress of Dadron, which stands impregnable in the center of Falsis. In the west, however, a dark spirit plots revenge against his ancient rival, who is worshipped as a god in Dadron. Good and evil prepare for the coming clash; but for those caught up in the midst of the struggle, the difference between the two seems to vanish away.
In the midst of this conflict, Daryas Galvahirne finds himself torn from his homeland by forces beyond his understanding. Tortured by dreams and terrified by the uncertainty of the future, he discovers, to his horror, that much of this future has come to rest upon his own shoulders.
Though he has a powerful prince for a rival and a terrifying monster as his enemy, his greatest anxiety is born from the demand of his beloved that he return to her without spot or blemish. But how can a soul, black throughout, be made white?

About the Author

I was born and raised in New Jersey; and I am New Jerseyan through and through, wherever life may take me.
For Christmas one year my parents bought me a Lord of the Rings computer game. I started playing it and was so inspired by the story that I put the game aside and did not touch it again until I had read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Those books sparked within me a love of reading in general and a love of fantasy literature in particular.
My favorite genre, however, is philosophy, particularly as it relates to ethics and metaphysics. This, together with my love of the fantastic, is the inspiration for my writing.
In my reading I have seen how ideas affect history. For this reason it has been important to me to not simply tell a story, but to show how the characters interact with different ideologies and ethical dilemmas. I want my readers to at least understand, even if they do not sympathize with, the villains of the story.
