Author In Studio

From Bones of Starlight Facebook, upon receiving 100 Likes:

Many thanks to the readers, supporters, and muses who have been along for the journey, as this story grew from a plotline, to a few website posts, to a book; from two central characters, to a universe full, with a returning history, growing aspirations, and discovery of the unknown.

I look forward to bringing you more of this space fantasy saga, and I hope it captivates you as it has me! May the connections we’ve formed through time and space grow strong. Here’s to the future, and a good start.
