I write fantasy.
Medieval and Young Adult clean fantasy with threads of mystery, beauty, and adventure.
Parents, are you looking for books for a young adult reader that inspires as it entertains? The Falcon Chronicle delivers clean fantasy that isn’t sanitized within an inch of its life. Skip the smut and keep the adventure, the reality of life.
We are not alone in our battle to overcome, in our longing for beauty, in our search for a sense of mystery and wonder within new worlds.
Great fantasy like Jonathan Renshaw’s Dawn of Wonder, Anna Thayer’s The Knight of Eldaran trilogy, Andrew Peterson’s The Wingfeather Saga, S.D. Smith’s The Green Ember series, K. M. Weiland’s Dreamlander etc., and CJ Brightley’s The Wraith and the Rose and other books bring us through hope and despair, weakness and strength to behold evil and good and the promise of a new future.
As readers of clean fantasy, we seek hope in adventure, delighting in hearts forged true. We find reality in eternal things. Wound as a living thread throughout epic fantasy, within the eternal there is a call.
That clarion call rings across the worlds; A cry of hope that beats back the darkness of despair.
It is especially clear in what I call mythic fantasy – wondrous worlds that reflect our Creator and our relationship to Him, to life, and to each other.
Cross over the wall of unbelief, a closed mind, and ennui, those ruthless enemies of goodness, learning, and delight. Discover the adventure of clean fantasy for yourself.
Explore The Falcon Chronicle series, a YA fantasy adventure that spans medieval Britannia and Arabia.

I love hiking outdoors where the green smells and unknown horizons call me to spontaneous adventure. Fantasy with hints of mystery and fascinating new worlds are my reading and writing love. Laughing and keeping the eternal in view helps me overcome health handicaps. Northern Idaho is my home, while music takes me to wondrous places. To name a few of my favorite soundtracks: LOTR, 13th Warrior, King Raven, The Katurran Odyssey, The Last Samurai, Enya, and Eragon. Epic fantasy takes me where I long to roam.
