Self-published steampunk fantasy author. (Find "The Flame Owl" and "Bull's Blood" for download as ebooks, and some of the stories here are available for download as "Tales from the Insulan Empire")

The Insulan Empire is teetering on the brink of a magical and industrial apocalypse. There can only be a handful who prosper from confrontations between political factions and the squabbling nationalities. All the while, strange phenomena are warping the fabric of reality.

These stories take you through a kaleidoscope of people stranded after war, experiencing spiritual and ghostly revelation, and investigating curious crime.
