My Bio
I'm an independent writer, trying to break into real commercial success. Check out my books on Amazon including "Crafter's Passion" and "The Digital Coyote".

I write science fiction and fantasy, with a lot of interest in robots, AI, transhumanism and transformation, with some silliness. I most want to write upbeat, pro-freedom stories without being preachy or straying too far from real science. Lately I've also written for the "LitRPG" or "GameLit" genre, which involves game-like elements and virtual reality.

Favourite Gaming Platform

Tools of the Trade

Other Interests

I've started posting a new fantasy novel to the site "Royal Road"! It's about a modern college student who's sent to a fantasy world to take over for someone else. His new home is on the verge of a steampunk magitech revolution, and he's set to be at the forefront of it. In between exploring dungeons and gaining skills and levels, since it's a world running on game logic. What do the gods want from him, and can he grow both as a person and as an adventurer? You can find the story in progress, here: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/43182/rising-world And I'm posting advance material to Patreon, because I've started using that: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=5942610 . I'm considering doing a 6th book of "Wavebound" if enough people are interested in that one. (Book 3 of it is being posted to Royal Road as well, under the name "Wavebound".)

I tried out a small pen-and-paper RPG called "The Cave of Leaf and Stone" ( https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/335559/Cave-of-Leaf-and-Stone-Starter-Adventure ), part of a large series ("Micro Chapbook"; call it MC). It's billed as a dungeon crawl styled game. My adventurer wizard began with the "easy" level of stats, and a favorable roll for starting money that gave him the best armor, an axe and a sling. Result: Fought an evil tree in the first room, fought three evil trees in the second room, then ran back out because I was already dangerously low on health and Will. What went wrong? Besides difficulty balance, I found there weren't interesting choices to make. Combat consists of rolling to see who dies first between you and a patient line of identical foes. You have the option of fleeing (which is basically useless for several reasons) and if you're a spellcaster, using a spell... but starting mages have only one random spell and mine, "Heal", generally wasn't useful in combat.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08TTT7T49/ New release: Book 5 of the "Wavebound" series about a merchant who became the new Goddess of Water. Features robots, gator-men, ruins, war and surreal divine battle. Book 1 is now free on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CBJGVCT I'm beginning to post books 1-2 to Royal Road as an experiment to see if that draws reader attention to the series. You can read that as an ongoing story here: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/39279/wavebound

Hey Kris! Stumbled across your profile and wanted to ask for a request! Or, do you only do commissions? I'm kinda poor...

But! The character I would really want you to write about is my OC Voidwalker. He is a gryphon, once a human, who tortured himself with his discovery of Interdimensional Travel. Once he landed in his persued destination, letting out a breath that he hadn't gone insane, he was cursed to become a gryphon by a traitor that he trusted. Now he walks with the voices of the people he had left without a word behind, crying and torturing him with their misery.

His appearance as a human is a white space-casual suit that he had made to not be pulled apart by the gravity of the dimensions, and to look casual once he reaches inside a dimension. Blonde hair, and a scarred face, with worry lines and dark bags under his eyes from hours of sleepless travel. But his gryphon form is different, scarred and ripped scales and dried tears on his beak. Bloodied eyes and a broken mind. Black feathers and fur coat him . If you ever do this, here's a backstory. If you do, I'll be delighted to see how you pull it off. Thanks!

Hello, and thanks for thinking of me. I generally only do commissions rather than requests. This one... Well, I'm not in a great mood lately, and am not eager to write something depressing. So I'm probably not the best person to write this one. Thanks though!

Yeah sure! Can you recommend someone that could do it though?

Hey there, Kris, my name is Ryan and can I ask you a question.
Well Kris, are you making any requests or not as I got one if intersted to hear.
