Still Scratching My Head on Darwin

Just picked a random picture for this post, which connects to the weekly subject of autism.  Last year, I mentioned that I might be creating an autistic character because I noticed he had similar behaviors to my son.  To be … Continue reading

The Spy of Windemere . . . Sort Of

Long ago, I was in high school.  Not the greatest intro to this post, but that’s when this character first arrived.  You can guess the inspiration.  If ‘Immortal Wars’ came from my love of superheroes and sci-fi, ‘Mylrix’ came from … Continue reading

Tales of the Slumberlord: How Much Trouble Can He Get In?

(Kind of funny how I’ve been pushing this Sunday post back for about 2 months.  I keep having other things that I need or want to post.  Sorry if things are bit off here.) My mind is already inching towards … Continue reading

From the Vault: Ruins of the Zodiac Gods

Figured that was the only blind warrior people would recognize these days.  You’ll find out what that has to do with this older story idea later on.  Anyway, this one is called ‘Ruins of the Zodiac Gods’, which is going … Continue reading

Grabbing from the Notebooks: Phi Beta . . . Files?

Figure I can use Sundays to present future ideas that I haven’t fully fleshed out.  Helps to write stuff out, especially those that I carried from other worlds to Windemere.  This one is like that, which you can tell from … Continue reading

The Fall of ‘Footsteps’

As I was looking through my future ideas, I kept running into a set of notes that came at the end of all the big series.  These were called ‘Footsteps’ and stemmed from a point when I was going to … Continue reading

Keys of Eden . . . The Basics

Probably not the best idea to use that picture, but people are going to jump to the comparison anyway.  Keys of Eden is the story/series where the main character is going to be collecting 100 unique monsters.  Wow.  It’s really trippy that … Continue reading

Legends Revisited: Baron Arthuru Kernaghan the Forgotten Warlord #fantasy #adventure

While he didn’t show up a lot, the Legends of Windemere wouldn’t have gone anywhere without Baron Arthuru Kernaghan.  He typically only appeared in prologues with a few mid-book scenes until I reached the 12th book.  Even then, he only got a … Continue reading

Revisiting Legends: Kira Grasdon the Tortured Soul #fantasy #adventure

Within the pages of Legends of Windemere, one character will always stand out to me as the wild card.  The reason is because she was unexpected, but she also developed a really big love/hate relationship with readers.  Some seemed to hate … Continue reading

Revisiting Legends: Trinity the Queen of Shayd #fantasy #adventure

Where to even begin with Trinity?  Over the course of Legends of Windemere, she has worn the mask of a villain, hero, savior, tormentor, victim, friend, rival, and a few others.  I think she’s the most diverse one of the whole cast … Continue reading
