This site is a showcase for potential publishers and interested individuals.

I write science fiction with a historical edge, set in epic, well-developed worlds. My work is connected thematically by the genre of far future human civilization.

The short stories posted here are standalones in a shared universe.

The sample chapters are from a novel I'm working on, Pax Humana. In it, humans discover intelligent life on an exoplanet. However, it is basically a bronze-age level civilization. So, when we go there to make contact, we are the advanced aliens. They worship us as gods according to their mythology.  Some of the emissaries sent to represent the human race start to go mad with power, seeing an easy path to world domination on a primitive alien planet, far from home, possessed of superior scientific knowledge and technology.  The chapters posted here are from the second part of the book; after humans have colonized the planet, established a dynasty of god kings that has lasted for thousands of years, and, by declining generations, let the world slip back into barbarity.
