On the borderlands of the Kingdom of Deran, a young forest scout named Dar Cabot fights off an attack by goblin warriors and finds the ruins of a village, its homes burned and people slain. Eager for justice for the townsfolk, he enlists the help of an unlikely combination of allies: a halfling spy with a hidden past, the adopted son of a famous wizard, two half-elven sisters from a enemy land, a widowed priestess of the Elven god and a seemingly laid-back warrior with secrets of his own. Together the new-found companions battle against the shadowy cult of the Ja'al and its inhuman allies in the dark caverns and green woodlands of the frontier. Their search leads them on a journey to powerful magic, long-lost ruins, and chilling discoveries of evils from a bygone age. Dogged by an ancient prophecy that seems to call them out by name, the companions find friendship, romance, intrigue, and startling revelations as they race against time to thwart the Ja'al plans and solve the mystery of Whitehorse Peak.

A route to fantasy fiction through the aerospace industry may seem an odd one to take, but I have been writing stories since grammar school and have never stopped even though my career path took an unconventional turn for someone interesting in writing. A trained systems engineer, I have kept up my creative writing and coursework throughout my career working on the C-17 airlifter, the International Space Station, the Delta IV Rocket and the James Webb Space Telescope. I have enjoyed and been influenced by JRR Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Katherine Kurtz, Christopher Stasheff, Terry Brooks and C. Dale Brittain, to name a few. I have had short stories published in Dragonlaugh, an online fantasy humor magazine. My bachelor's degree is in Aerospace Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona and my master's is in Systems Engineering from USC. Whitehorse Peak is my first novel and the first in a trilogy. I have studied martial arts for many years, currently play in a men's recreational baseball league, enjoy coaching youth sports, and am active in my parish community. I live in California with my wife and two sons.Review:
..".Whitehorse Peak excels, standing out from the crowd of fantasy adventures...a riveting, emotionally powerful story line...vibrant with realistic action" - D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
