about me  

I exist in the space between the medieval past and the not so distant future. By day, I live like the skalds of old, running my own PR agency and sharing stories with the press about the kind of future I believe my tech clients can deliver. By night I wander into the past, using known history and fiction to create stories about people living in turbulent times. While I understand my interest in the future, I have no explanation for my fascination with the past. It is a calling, and a mystery.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, hardly the epicenter of medieval history. Yet even from the earliest age, I can remember devouring books about castles and warrior kings and Tolkien's Middle Earth. That fascination, coupled with a love of writing, led me to the completion of two books in a trilogy about Hakon Haraldsson (or Hakon the Good): God's Hammer and Raven's Feast.

But I am more than an author. I am the husband to an incredible wife and the father to two amazing kids. I am also an avid skier and recovering triathlete. Like my writing, these too are my passions.

I am now hard at work on the third book in Hakon's Saga. To stay up to date on them both, you can follow me at the links to the left or simply fill out my Contacts page. Thank you!
