VIKING DEATH SQUAD is my most recent, and kinda crazy, RPG book. This game is based entirely on the classic song WAR PIGS by Black Sabbath, and it is crazy hardcore fun, with unfrozen viking immortals, homicidal cyborgs, coffins in space, and guns that shoot knives.

I have always been a writer of fantasy adventure, but this trilogy of legendary stories is my very best work. This Collector's Edition has illustrations by the amazing Jose Leite, and includes all three of the beyond-epic Mud novels.

In 2018, I published my epic fantasy trilogy, THE LEGACY OF MUD, as a set of audiobooks. My voice actor, Mason Hunter, was awesome to work with, and the books came out great.
