Welcome explorers, warriors, scholars, tinkerers, and common folk!

If you enjoy the depth of Tolkien, the swashbuckling adventure of Dumas, and the political intrigue of GRRMartin, the world of Earthpillar is one you’ll want to explore.

Written with flavors of epic fantasy, adventure, steampunk, grimdark, and alternative history, Earthpillar novels and half-tales are set in a world in which the Earth evolved differently. New continents, new peoples, and new materials and technologies blended with conflict, secret scheming, and exploration.

Most Earthpillar stories--which span from prehistory to the steam age--are linked together in surprising ways, and are usually written from multiple character perspectives.

My 2019 debut novel, Lords of Deception, is the core of the Earthpillar nonlinear matrix of stories. From there, you can explore prequels, sequels, or side stories.

I also have an extensive online interactive of a castle with dozens of clickable maps where you can explore artwork, lore, alchemical objects, bookshelves, and chests like an old school choose-your-own-adventure. It’s a good way to learn more about the Earthpillar world you’ve read about in the novels (or get a taste of the writing if you haven't), without stumbling into spoilers.
