Traeadon will remember you... bathe you in vestigial kinship with fruitful magic and whispering trees. It is the reverent nexus of our resilient future, but not long for peace. A idiot’s mistake can be remedied by a fool—when a powerful wisdom falters, justice calls for commensurate compensation. Warriors of Grace answer with affinity, reborn from lost ages. On the Island of Traeadon, colonial humankind has physically evolved, an equal shift of consciousness is now imperative. This war of mortal will and fist will determine that fickle fate. This war is not only for hallowed ground; it must save Eternity with the last innocence: hope.

Contact me to read this psyche engaging, myth re-inventing genre defying future-earth saga. The Ark adventure bridges high-fantasy with science-fiction, nature heartsong and horror. The plot is sufficiently fleshed out for both prequels and sequels (including a Richard Adams-esque wolf perspective story). I have a deep affinity with nature and am actively environmentally conscious. Nature reverence is pervasive throughout the story. May the reader remember deep love for our earth! (This mission, should you choose to accept it, is relevant and reader empowering.)
Twenty-three years have lent relative texture to this world and to my characters. While writing Reason, I raised two marvels of feminine independence. I am working full-time on 'the platform' and on new pages: Mettle, Quicksand Shadow (book three in Vol. II). I have five+ chapters polished (80k+ words) and ready for review.
I need a savvy industry advocate. I am looking for an agent who is hungry for thick books with a fan’s predilection to get lost in an expansive world. I will find you, and you will be keen to elevate expectation for all genre fiction.
I am the modern fantasy fan, The Ark of Traeadon progressively speaks to the need for new plausibility drenched in real magic.
(My heart wishes for peace and light for us all.)

I do not read fiction while I am actively writing fiction, unless it applies directly to a form in which I require better familiarity.
I have been recently wooed into reading The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers as it has been tied into the storyline of True Detective, HBO powerhouse show with the BEST writing on tv.
(I read good poetry and articles daily.)
whatever the time
the time being gazes past
the innate temporary
of... whatever this is
into the gears
into the wealth
the time being pardons the insignificant
weathering a kindly promise for little orphans
or withering patience for the 'paltry'
it is a nose full of ozone
a dreamer's bliss spent peering off
through mountain anchors much too close
like immovable mothering busts that keep and snug
it is a meaty tongue watering for alien tastes
more jubilant than the winged parry of vivid violins, certainly
look at these
daisy chain daily paper dolls
with easy flitting language lashes
full of all
where the sphere of grins swells with windsong
and all sacrifice is swept along
chiming tiny triumphs: ashes, a s h e s
it is life here
is long ago and just beyond
less distant and less tangible
how--? sniffs wonder
how a simple phrase does crave
the time being swallows now
with thick-throated omniscience
in a last ditch-digger pep rally
behind fickle pickets
.. smelling the fresher, greener
like after rain redolence
with a fist of water more of me
and some reanimated best to come
stubbing-toe-stones in the real dry heat of a red dirt lot
the time being is equal parts hope and aspersion
an ache shaking hands with a nod
it raises one brow for my wilted apology
and it should spare a lick
in the face of this discarded present
find whatever with mercy
i have one leveled half-cup
of less than asks the recipe
it is simple
and how it does transition
with my sentiment
