Hello!

I've been working diligently at the craft of writing for the past ten years while also creating the Fantasy world of Mystica, which borrows much from the Ancient Romans, Celts, and Vikings. I very much wish to bring something new and exciting to Fantasy, which is why I've veered away from a setting similar to Medieval England. Above all else, I desire to honor the legends who’ve come before me, including but not limited to Howard, Tolkien, Jordan, Pratchett, Holdstock, Gaiman, Salvatore, Gemmell, King, and Sanderson.

Hence, my goal is professionalism and quality at every level.

2018 will be a banner year for me. I'm publishing my first trilogy.

  • Mystica: Fera
  • Mystica: Letum
  • Mystica: Lucha

Collectively, they tell the story of how magic gets reintroduced to the world of Mystica and how two lovers who will reshape that world come together.

Individually:

Fera is the tale of Cristiana, an orphaned thirteen year old girl who grows to maturity and avenges the man who ruined her father.

Letum is the story of Talus, a noble wrongfully accused of murder who turns to thievery as a wanted man. He meets and falls in love with the woman Cristiana has become, but mysteriously vanishes. Was he arrested or has something more sinister happened?

Lucha shows us Cristiana searching for Talus and the incredible amount she's willing to suffer in order to find him, or at the very least, learn his fate.

To help market the aforementioned trilogy, I'm hiring professional artists to create scenes and character portraits from my novels in the interest of SWAG and promotion, which is where you come in, Dear Reader.

Now's your chance to become a driving force behind Mystica, and receive benefits no one else will get. You can do this by becoming a patron for the art that will come from Letum and Lucha. I've already commissioned the art for Fera, which will get presented here.

Thank you for your consideration!
