About the author:
Who am I? An author specializing in speculative fiction, more toward the fantasy than the science fiction end of the SF spectrum. My longest-running project is the Last Book of the Kings series. Begun as a lark during the early nineties, the first volume of this adventure/fantasy series was made available from OakTara fiction late in 2007. The Keeper House Unending was then followed by The King’s Brother in 2011, with four other novels slated to follow– and possibly a collection of short stories thrown into the deal. We shall see. Other facets of my decidedly off-the-beaten-path personality include a love of the culinary arts, a penchant for sarcasm, and a vocabulary that’s too big for its britches (to use a fine, old-fashioned phrase). Above all, I’m very inquisitive. Never ask me a question unless you genuinely want an answer.
