About

I'm an author of speculative fiction. Sometimes I imagine possible futures. Sometimes I tell stories about alternate pasts. Other times I peer into the shadows of the present. My goal in coming to Patreon, at least initially, is to create a platform for my space pirate/cowboy saga known as the Space Pirates' Legacy series. As time goes on, you may see other stories and other works in progress from me.

At present, I'm revising my first novel, The Pirates of Sufiro. The Pirates of Sufiro is the story of a planet and its people—of Ellison Firebrandt the pirate captain living in exile; of Espedie Raton, a man from the streets of Earth looking to make a fresh start for himself and his wife on a new world; of Peter Stone, the geologist who discovers a fortune and will do anything to keep it; and of the lawman, Edmund Ray Swan who travels to Sufiro seeking the quiet life but finds a dark secret. It is the story of privateers, farmers, miners, entrepreneurs, and soldiers—all caught up in dramatic events and violent conflicts that will shape the destiny of our galaxy.

Each month, I post a chapter of the original version of the novel along with my thoughts about it 25 years after its first publication and then share a revised version. Thank you for dropping by my page and learning about this project and for your support.
Goals
$17 of $20 per month
Every little bit helps. Once I reach $20 per month of Patreon support, I'll make the ebook of Firebrandt's Legacy available as a download in mobi and epub formats to my supporters for six months once it's complete. As long as I maintain this level of support, I'll offer each of my books for free to patrons for six months. The amount helps me pay for art, layout, and design of the finished books.
