A pre-edited snippet from Chapter 3 of Book 3: Crow – Vindication. Steven is still struggling to find a place for himself in the Cooperative. Unfortunately, most of the Cooperative still sees him as a dire threat to their very existence and will go to great lengths to terminate that threat.


Steven Faces Resistance

“How long is this going to take?” Steven shifted from foot to foot impatiently. Aradia looked up at Steven briefly, then returned to her task, barely hiding her annoyance.

“You do not have to wait, Steven,” she said after an uncomfortable moment.

Steven looked at Sally then back at Lohet’s daughter, oblivious of her irritation.… Read the rest...

Why would anyone want to read what I write?

I’m a daydreamer from as far back as I can remember, and have been jotting down ideas, stories and whatnot since my teens. I was fortunate to have fallen in with a creative crowd which helped me develop myself as an artist and story-teller. We spent countless hours passing ideas back and forth, developing characters and plots, writing, play-acting scenes and even breaking out a state-of-the-art VHS camcorder and laying down some action scenes.

The first section from the first chapter of Book 3: Crow – Vindication – after first revision and first editing pass. A lot of firsts. This is the third story in the Crow series.

SPOILER ALERT: There may be some spoilers if you have not read the first book yet – Crow – The Awakening. Be forewarned…

Steven has been accepted by Syagria, the planet that is home to his biological mother and to his life-mate. But most of the rest of the Cooperative is still terrified of him, in spite of his demonstrating that he was not the rabid monster that they considered him to be.… Read the rest...

I wrote this back in 1994 as a test for a story idea I was working on. I found it again back in 2012 and found inspiration from it as I embarked on my current writing projects. Here it is, in its largely unedited format:


A skull crunched under the gleaming boot, crumbling spontaneously into a cloud of black dust. Servos whined within the armored leg as balance was readjusted, and with just the slightest hesitation the trek was continued. The power source was tanta­lizingly close, a faint ebbing echo that hinted at life on a world over ten millennia dead.… Read the rest...
