My mother bought that shiny red box for me after reading an 'editorial' in the local paper claiming that role playing games drove kids to worship dark forces in the sewers. I was ten, and it's probably a good thing there were no sewers on my street, otherwise, I would have delved down with my hand-crafted wooden sword and my trash can shield, ready to smite evildoers of all stripes, likely to never be heard from again.
Thankfully, my forays into the underworld never materialized, and I faced neither dragon nor goblin nor gelatinous cube. Instead, I turned my eye and my quill to writing fantastical tales.
Today, thanks to my two Bestselling LitRPG series, The Quintessence, which incorporates cultivation elements and measured progression, and The Realms, which burst onto the LitRPG scene with Barrow King in February 2018, I get to put the profession author on my tax return.
In addition to my two current series, I am in the early stages of plotting a third LitRPG series, The Reluctant Paladin, as well as the GameLit, sci-fi comedy romp Salinger Jones, which will continue my love of inventive world-building, fast-paced action, deep characters, and oddball humor.
