Personal Works in Progress
On a personal note, I have completed my first fantasy novel, The Dire Deeds of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits, a tale of mid-life magic and adventure, and am currently seeking literary representation. In November 1st, 2018, I started the second book in the series, The Witching Work of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits. This book is set in Lake County, CA and introduces the character of Lucky LaFey.
