A Novel

  Before the fateful phone call, Daphne’s greatest worries were limited to making rent, making art, and what to feed her finicky Siamese.

During an otherwise unremarkable shift, a particularly hateful voice coming through her phone line unleashes shadowy horrors that threaten her sanity, her workplace, and eventually her entire city.

Daphne and two unlikely companions, a tattooed metalhead and a ditzy nurse, must find a way to free themselves from the curse or face a world of endless fear, blinding fog and deadly phantoms!

The Dice of Fate

A Novel

What would you do if you were pulled from your ordinary life and had to survive by the knowledge in your head, and what you take with you to work?

It’s another average day working the phones in the call center, and Sanae is prepared for another long day of nothing interesting happening.

When she suddenly finds herself stranded in the middle of a mysterious forest, far away from everything and everyone she knows, she has no choice but to explore the new land and meet whatever strange creatures might dwell there.

Surviving with only the things she brought to work with her that morning and having no idea how to speak the local language, Sanae tackles her challenges with vigor. For each answer she finds, there are new questions. What brought her here? Will she ever return? And if she could, would she want to go? One thing is certain, Sanae will never be the same.

Quests of the Avatar:

Seeking virtue in the Modern World

In this book, I invite the reader into a great adventure specially designed for gamers and lovers of fantasy. Quests of the Avatar describes a system of virtue I found in a rather unlikely place – a roleplaying game, actually the first one I ever played!

I’ve been greatly inspired by the ideas and concepts in that game. Not only did I find them intriguing, but also different enough to have true, lasting value.

I understand you may not want to spend fifty hours playing an 8 bit NES!  I wanted to share these ideas anyway, so that’s why I wrote this book.

The premise is simple.  In the modern era, it often seems virtue is forgotten, particularly for those who are non religious, as I am. Everyone knows that it’s better to be brave, truthful, compassionate, etc, but isn’t it nice to have a coherent path to build those ethical muscles and improve yourself? Without being told you’re a sinner? How about simply growing from your starting point, without guilt or judgment, using a system to keep everything organized, and have some fun while doing it?

I mean this to be a journey deep into your Self. It’s a system of ethics and morality that is utterly without stodginess, but could help develop a well rounded personality. At the same time, the system can help in re-framing how you see and think about virtue in a way that is fresh and hopefully thought provoking.

This Ebook is an offering to everyone out there who is seeking a better life, and that’s why I’ve made it available, completely free of charge. If you like it, please share a link to my blog!
