Novelist, poet, playwright, short story author, non-fiction writer, and game designer
photo by John D. Wright
Welcome to my official website. I am an eclectic writer in many genres, thoroughly addicted to reading and writing since I was old enough to do either. Whether you like fantasy, poetry, general fiction, regional and area non-fiction pertaining to hiking and other interests, or the careful non-fiction work of academic and scholarly writing, I probably have something for you.
I have an abiding love for games. I design board games as well as role-playing game material. I have been an avid fan of Dungeons and Dragons for around 30 years and, when I am not reading and writing, I am generally gaming.
The elven illusionist, Shadowbender, and his sister, Oceana, and their mismatched allies have the only known copy of the magical spell that can prevent the dragons from awakening out of their millennial slumber. They must race against time, dogged all the way by the Cult of the Wyrm dedicated to killing them, to find the birthplace of the creatures and use the spell before the dragons throw the world back into chaos.
