The Pacific Northwest

I am the author of The Wisdom of the Shire, hailed by Kirkus Reviews as “a life-affirming, must-have morsel for Tolkien’s colossal fan base.” The book has been translated into 8 languages including Finnish and Spanish. My musings on J.R.R. Tolkien and his Hobbits have appeared in the U.S. and U.K. versions of The Huffington Post and Legendarium. My action-adventure The Warrior Trilogy is published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press. The first book in the series—Sons of Zeus—is available in hardcover, ebook and unabridged audio. An award-winning playwright, video game writer and film producer, I co-host the D&D nostalgia blog I live in the Pacific Northwest with my wife and children.
