Excerpt from Prequel * A King In Time


Gwen drew her bow, focused on the shadow of a deer deep in the autumn forest. Then a glimpse of soft sad eyes gathered a sadness in her heart. The deer turned his gaze toward her and made her pause. Slowly, she released the tension on her arrow and thereby disarmed her weapon. She could not hunt such an innocent creature. The deer walked toward her never taking his gaze from her.

“Please have no fear of me. I have been waiting for you.” Gwen could catch his fragrance, a heady mixture of evergreen, and warm blood that coursed within and toward his heart. “I bring you a prophecy to guide you on the path of your destiny.”

At this Gwen slowly moved toward him, her boots crunching through the crimson leaves that carpeted the forest floor. “Tell me of this prophecy. I am ready to hear it.”

The deer drew closer and the warmth in his eyes convinced Gwen she had nothing to fear indeed so she listened carefully as he told her of his vision. “One day, when you are no longer a child, there will come a king who will claim you as his own. If you accept his hand, you must vow to be true to his love. If you do not do this as I have told you, a great darkness will fall upon the land and you will regret your transgression. Please remember this until then.”

Gwen smiled and reached out her hand to caress the soft ears of her noble prophet. “I promise. I will never forget your words. Thank you kind friend.”

Then, in the blink of an eye, he was gone.

Is a picture worth a 1000 words?



I say it takes both.  I use pictures and scenes of my stories that seem to flesh out the words I write and provide me with inspiration or ideas that get my creative motor started. All of the images I have posted to my Author Page on facebook have brought me closer to completing the research on the prequel and second novel in the sequence that I am aiming for. I invite you to go there and see for yourself.

Thanks for listening.

New Novel Solves Problem of King Arthur’s Return in Original Way



King Arthur, known as “The Once and Future King,” has long been prophesied as destined to return in the hour of Britain’s greatest need—in fact, people thought he might return during the Battle of Britain in World War II. But currently, his return remains something we dream of and hope for in the future. What that return will be like and how to depict it in fiction is a true challenge that only a few novelists have attempted, such as Stephen Lawhead in Avalon and Susan Cooper in her The Dark Is Rising series. However, in my opinion, no novelist has succeeded in creating a plausible and enjoyable return for King Arthur.

A King In Time


A King In Time is my first published novel and has been the love of my life. It’s a story that is near to my heart and therein lies the inspiration to create my view of the past. The story is about Arthur, Prince of Wales and future King of England, who must decide if he wants to return to his own time in 2100 A.D.

I invite you to take a look at the listing on Amazon.

Or you can find it on Barnes and Noble.

Should you decide to read this novel of times gone by, I would be honored if you would leave a review.

Thank you for reading.
