This site introduces the worlds I’m building for the Magic Unleashed series. Each book in the series will introduce more lore for the reader, more complexity for the characters, and weirder situations for the overarching plot. My blog here at The Sorcerer’s Realm is an integral part of sorting through all the material in the books. Buckle up buttercup, you’re in for a great ride!
I’ve been telling stories of one kind or another as long as I could string words together. I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and lived all over the United States from Virginia to Wisconsin. I now call the small town of Ottumwa, Iowa home. From my enlistment in the U.S. Navy after high school to managing a bar in my adopted hometown, I’ve held a variety of interesting jobs.
While defending truth, freedom and the American way, I’ve also visited many strange lands, from the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean to Djibouti in Africa . My wife Brenda and I enjoy spending time with friends and our extended family. You can often find me telling stories about my travels, embarrassing situations, and other tall tales where ever I may be. My hobbies include world history, gaming, watching movies, listening to music, reading, and writing (especially science-fiction and fantasy). My favorite authors are Robert A. Heinlein, Piers Anthony, Frank Herbert, and J.R.R. Tolkien, Jack L. Chalker, Orson Scott Card, L. E. Modesitt, Jr. and Jim Butcher.
