Stars Over Midgar


Stars Over Midgar

Cid stood in front of the mirror, grumbling to himself as he struggled with his tie. How long had it been since he’d last worn one? He could not, for the life of him, remember how these damn things worked. As he ended up with a knot that looked more like a noose, he nearly bit his cigarette in half in rage. Angrily he plucked it from his lips and stabbed it into the sink, letting out a last stream of smoke like an overheating engine. His front door opened and he heaved out a weary sigh. Only one person treated his door like only a suggestion. “Not in the mood, Shera,” he called out. Furiously, Cid whipped the tie back out of a knot. “I-It’s getting late,” Shera’s voice said from the living room. “I just saw the Tiny Bronco is still here.

Victorious Cross

Victorious Cross

I am proud to announce my first published book, Victorious Cross! When Victorio Cruz chooses to accept the Spear of Creation and fight the Darkness, he had no idea it would cost him everything he loves. The latest in a long line of Spear Bearers, Victorio is swept into a world of flying ships, cross-dimensional heroics and fantastical creatures. He’s joined by the Cartesian Guard, brave warriors dedicated to protecting the gods and maintaining balance in the infinite. But the Darkness is rising, and their stronghold is under attack. Victorio must take up the Spear again before the Empty drags the universe’s last defenders into their gruesome forges. If you like fierce battles between light and dark, YA adventure stories and vast fantasy settings, you’ll love Victorious Cross, the first book in the City Between series.
