Novels

The following projects are a work in progress, specific titles and plot outlines are either in development or confidential:

Mystery/detective Novel - first draft underway

A light-hearted mystery thriller in which a young history nerd turns amateur sleuth when the small country town of his childhood kicks up one bizarre mystery after another. 

Potential sequel in brainstorming stages.

Worldbuilding project - (always) in development

A long term worldbuilding project featuring constructed languages, cultures and art created in service of a series of large scale mythopoeic fantasy tales. This has been in the works for many years collaborating with one of my closest friends, and remains an ongoing passion project - or series of projects...

Sci-Fi Worldbuilding Project - in development

Another large scale worldbuilding project aimed at exploring mythic storytelling in a timeless way, folding the entire history and future of the universe into the space of 'legend', while also satisfying my obsession with futurism and science. 

Graphic Novel(s)

Currently toying with the format, combining stories with my art interests...
