The Dragon That Ate the Sun

The Deep Wyrm, Source of all Dragons, and the Day it Ate the Sun



Happy Yule, my friends, and whatever holiday you celebrate.  I am a few days late, but I have a gift for you: a visit to a long hall in faraway Skardr, where an old skald shares a story with a hopeful warrior.

Publishing Bonanza and Future Plans

And there we go.  Both Knight of Grey and Midwinter Gifts are in the wild, people are getting them, people are saying nice things, and one leans back and wonders how all this is possible.  It's taken a lot of work to get this far, and included some roads I didn't expect (I never expected to be writing kid's lit, for one),but I'm very grateful.  To my friends, my family, my writing community, and Jazz House.

What's next, you ask?

Viking Age Poetry: Kennings


Poetry of the Viking Age and the Anglo-Saxons


Hello, friends.  I have something different for you.  It's no news that Månegard is heavily inspired by Northern European lore. Part of that is because I have a fascination with early medieval history.  I have been deeply involved with research into that time period for the last seven years of my life, and have spent a huge amount of time studying the literature and poetry as well.  A lot of that has come through as I write in Månegard, and so I'd like to put on my research hat for a minute and go into that.  Buckle up!
