My most recent novel is The Edge of Chaos, a Forgotten Realms fantasy. I’m also the author of the bestselling Shadowrun trilogy The Dragon Heart Saga — Stranger Souls, Clockwork Asylum, and Beyond the Pale — and several other fantasy and science fiction titles.
The Edge of Chaos
The touch of the Spellplague lingers in the valleys of the Vilhon Wilds. Roiling with blue fire and strange aberrations, the Plaguewrought Land outside the city of Ormpetarr lures pilgrims hoping for a spellscar, and its attendant powers, to their deaths. But an elixir crafted by a clever alchemist might hold the secrets to surviving the trial — or if the Order of the Blue Fire has its way, may unleash the Spellplague once more.
The obsidimen of Tepuis Garen have a deep kinship with each other and the earth from whence they are born. The youngest of the Garen brotherhood, Pabl Evr, returns home to find his liferock attacked by miners and threatened by a perverse magical force.

I started my career writing mostly short stories, flash fiction, and novellas. Sometimes a short story can be more powerful than a novel.
