About My Other Stories

I have dozens of short stories, hundreds of characters, and so many specific scenes that I’m amped to write about! However, I’m only going to touch on a handful here. As these are published, I’ll add links and more pages, but for now, here are my big plans.

I have the magical world of Xarynea. It has two moons, about ten continents, and hundreds if not thousands of islands, both in the oceans and the skies. Oh, and did I mention the unstable magical?

Valadysium is an interplanetary consortium of empires. With fifteen planets – many of them habitable – thousands of deities, and thirteen empires, what could possibly go wrong? Spoiler alert: a lot!

A story that I am currently calling From Different Worlds follows Tili and the other elven teachers who head into the human farmlands on their yearly pilgrimage for hopefuls. As you may well anticipate, she does not find who she expects.

Anion and the other stories of this fleet of intergalactic refugees examines how we as a race treat each other and ourselves.

By far my darkest tale, the hereunto entitled A War Of Two Cities trails three groups of kids between the ages of seven and seventeen as they try to bring about political change, economic sabotage, and ultimately the betterment of their lives and the lives of all.

So, what will I work on first?

The magical world of Xarynea has many, many stories. I’ve already mentioned a few, such as The Untold Tales of Elissa, The Lost Saga of Ancient Adeline, and The Falsehoods of Unfortunate Benjamin, but there are way more. Now, I just need to make the time to write them for you.

The Unravelling of Valadysium is my work-in-progress title for the collection of stories set in the jewel of paradise after the destruction of Old Earth. With fifteen planets, hundreds of moons, and thirteen empires, many problems abound in this interplanetary empire.

From Different Worlds leads you down a rabbit hole of portals, destiny, and plague. Tili is an elven teacher, who doesn’t trust her knowledge or lineage, while Breclear, a lazy daddy’s boy, has never worked a day in his life. Their fate is intertwined, even though they are from different worlds.

An Arc Named Anion is a project I began as an episodic tale, but I ended up taking the story down due to copyright issues. This tale follows the last remnants of the human race as they swim through space in arcs full of malfunctions, sabotage, mystery, and the true face of humankind.

… and perhaps a few in between.

Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens. Makes her a home.
