I'm an avid fan of myths and fantasy - from Tolkien, to R.E. Howard, to Fritz Leiber, and to HP Lovecraft - heck, even Frank Baum and CS Lewis! I graduated from grad programs in Clinical Psychology from Roosevelt University and in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I grew up in Illinois, where I still reside. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, biking, and walking winding trails through darksome forests, searching out the mystical beings that reside therein.


Forging of a Knight has been something I have worked on since it became an idea to me back in grade school and it finally came to life recently as a self published book, Eric Hoffer Book Award Finalist, and as an enjoyable adventure to a fantastic group of growing fans. If you like Forging of a Knight, its available as an Ebook and paperback on Amazon and other places. For signed copies please reach out to me.

Book Two of Forging of a Knight, Rise of the Slavekeepers, came out with a bang in 2013, and hot on its tail was Book Three, Prison Planet of the Mah-Lahkt, which came out in October 2014!

Book Four - The Stolen Thief, just came out this past September 2015, and Book Five, Knighthood's End is primed for October of this year.

You can follow my updates on character bios, previews of the new book, future books in the series, book promos, and more on goodreads.com or www.facebook.com/Forging.of.a.Knight.
