Original Fiction

I’m not just a fan fiction writer! I write my own worlds as well. From here you can jump to any of my pieces of original fiction I’ve posted to this blog.

The Squire

Genre: Fantasy
Length: Novella

Sky has a secret to keep but it’s not the kind of secret you’d think. As  he enters the freehold of Shield Port with his knight, Sir Henric, the core of who he is will be tested both mentally and physically. Along the way he’ll have to come to terms with who he really is and what it means for him, Sir Henric and the future of the land.


Genre: Science Fiction/Horror
Length: Novella

NASA’s prototype deep-space science vessel, the Icarus, is going to Alpha Centauri and William Shriver is not the kind of man you’d think to send.

He doesn’t know the first thing about the Time-Vortex Tunnels or how a star drive works. He doesn’t even read Science Fiction books, but when the pay and opportunity to spend ten years away from Earth comes up, he can’t help but volunteer. As a writer, his job will be to experience the trip and write down his observations in the hope that once he comes back to earth, he will have one hell of a story to tell.

Hell could be the story he brings back.

Written in the form of Shriver’s journal entries, Icarus tells the story of mankind’s first journey through the mysterious Time-Vortex Tunnels. These fluxes in space-time allow a ship to travel a great distance in a fraction of the time. It will take the Icarus approximately four and a half years to reach Alpha Centauri, but an extended stay in cramped quarters with a group of strangers isn’t the only problems awaiting the crew of the Icarus.

Like the fable, will the Icarus fly too close the far-distant star, daring what mankind should never dare?
