I'm an indie author writing epic fantasy, and my website will introduce you to me, my books (see below), release plans, giveaways, and other related information. In particular, I'd like to introduce you to my new series.

Even a small stone creates big ripples

In the kingdom of Arvenon, young Thomas Stablehand stumbles upon an unusual stone. Suddenly able to read the thoughts and intents of others, his life sours as he eagerly indulges his curiosity. But dangerous enemies seek the stone.

With overwhelming forces attacking the kingdom, Thomas has no one to turn to except Will Prentis, a born leader who has seized his opportunity to command. To thwart the invaders, Will must lead a small band on a perilous quest. Fearing exposure, Thomas flees with him, along with Brother Vangellis, a conflicted monk hiding from his past.

They can ill afford distractions, least of all a fiery young woman with a sharp tongue. But more may depend on Elbruhe than they can foresee.

As Thomas struggles to unravel the enigma of the stone, Will must outwit a relentless adversary whose true purpose remains a mystery.

Staying alive is a formidable challenge. Defeating their enemies seems an impossible dream.

The Stone of Knowing saga continues and concludes in The Cost of Knowing, book two of The Stone Cycle. (Note that The Stone of Knowing is not a standalone story.)

The ripples begin to make waves

Thomas Stablehand’s life is not the only thing spinning out of control since he found the stone. Entire kingdoms are now in turmoil.

As war clouds darken the horizon, unlikely heroes will arise.

Will Prentis, newly appointed as army commander, must outmaneuver a growing array of enemies as he prepares for an unequal showdown with Arvenon's invaders. Thomas, hunted unceasingly and aided only by Brother Vangellis, must sacrifice all to safeguard the stone.

The fate of kingdoms soon hinges on them and on Essanda, their new queen, who is easy to underestimate but may have surprises of her own in store.

Together they must confront a ruthless invader hiding a darker purpose.

The odds are hopeless. And for three kingdoms, the stakes are far higher than anyone knows.

The Cost of Knowing concludes the saga begun in The Stone of Knowing, book one of The Stone Cycle. (Note that The Cost of Knowing is not a standalone story.)
