So excited to reveal the next book cover. I'm so thrilled with the talent of Shasti O'Leary-Soudant who has created all the covers of the Kingfountain series. Book 5 is pretty intense. If you don't want any spoilers, then don't read the description! But by all means, enjoy the cover... Read More

I’m a fantasy author, but it may surprise you to know that my first love was science fiction. I still have strong memories and impressions dating back to 1977 when I was sitting in the Century movie theaters on Winchester Blvd in San Jose (which, incidentally, kind of looked like... Read More
