Welcome to the Internet home of The Other Stephen King (TOSK)!

Please, kick off your shoes and relax for a while.


Yay! I have finally gotten off my duff and published the final, fourth book in the Elf Queen of Kiirajanna series, Trial of Fire! Head on over to my Works page to see how to get a copy of it either via ebook or paperback. A word of caution, though -- paperbacks are taking a while to get printed through IngramSpark at the moment, so please plan on a few week lag on your order. I'll do everything I can to make it faster, I promise!

Join me, please, at the Emporia Book Fair! Saturday, June 24th, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Emporia Public Library, 110 E 6th Ave, Emporia, Kansas. I'll have cards to hand out and books to sign, though none of my cooler giveaways have arrived yet.

ALSO Join me, please, at a book signing Saturday, July 15th, at Findables, on the northwest corner of Gage and Huntoon in Topeka, Kansas, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Look at me, ramping up the appearances and showing that I can put real pants on!

ALSO join us -- no, really, this is awesome -- at the Fremont Fest in Porland, Oregon, August 4th and 5th. Look for the large booth full of boisterous veterans, all of whom are authors now. Portland will never be the same.

And hey, another -- ALSO join me at Stories of Hope and Healing, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm Wednesday, August 9th, at the Center for Hope and Healing, 1112 SW 6th Avenue, Topeka, Kansas. I'll be reading and then talking about what it means for me to be an author.

Trial of Spirit (Book 3 of Elf Queen of Kiirajanna) is now available! Check my works page for ordering details. It took an effort to get the book wrestled into a great story per my own high standards, but I'm glad to be done and working on finishing Book 4 now.

The Kickstarter campaign was a success! It was quite a project, getting files all set up and ready to submit to a new print on demand provider (Ingram-Spark), but they're all there now and I can't wait to get them into bookstores. I have my own ISBNs and am now the actual publisher of record of all my paperbacks.

Finally, I'm getting all fancy and stuff and starting to book appearances now that I'm nearly done with two great book series. The first one is the Emporia Public Library Authors Fair on June 24th, so if you can join me in Emporia, Kansas, please do! Also looking forward to an appearance in Portland, Oregon, in August. More info later!

So, I've been a writing fool. And a moving fool, too. All those Author Bios that say I live in Mobile, Alabama? Wrong, now. We're proud residents of Topeka, Kansas, as of August, 2016--and we hope to be able to say that for a long, long while.

And speaking of writing--I am nearly done with Book 3 of Elf Queen of Kiirajanna, and I think you'll love it! It's a skosh darker in content than the first book was, but that's because the story line is progressing to where I hope to have the final battle in Book 4. Which I'm writing this November, and so I hope to have the whole series completed by middle of 2017.

Oh, and sorry, my web page hasn't been updated in a while. I realized I didn't even have Trial of Ice available on the Works page. That's fixed, and I've also added an option on each paperback to buy it directly from me in a signed edition. Please don't forget to add your address in the PayPal comments!
