Mara of the Acoma

I partipicated in a virtual panel discussing Fantasy Through the Decades with Michael J. Sullivan, Peter V. Brett, and Anthony Ryan (Beth Tabler, moderator) on January 28, 2022.

The draft of the final volume in the Wars of Light and Shadow series is DONE! Shown here is ground zero at my writing desk on the morning after. The major story points stayed true to the original one page outline that I first drafted back in 1972!

Writing Space

I will announce the official publication date ONLY when it is set in stone by the publisher to avoid disappointing anyone with a moving target.

Don Maitz and I have contributed art to several of the novels in Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar universe. In our shared Riftwar album, you can see the original cover art and illustrations I created for Grim Oak Press' limited edition of Daughter of the Empire (which I also co-authored with Ray).

Light and Shadows Roadmap

Download the Wars of Light and Shadows Roadmap to understand the Story Arc structure of the series. This navigation sheet shows how the individual books are grouped into Story Arcs, where each Arc hits a grand finale and finishes an inflection point.

E-Book Release

Five classics are now available in e-book format from Open Road Integrated Media: The Master of Whitestorm, Sorcerer's Legacy, and the Cycle of Fire (Stormwarden, Keeper of the Keys, and Shadowfane). Each novel features updated cover art, improved e-book layout, and carefully proofed text. The existing audiobooks for each novel are still available as well.
