I have ghost written both fiction and nonfiction, including on such topics that involve physics, self-improvement, medical subjects, insurance, and Qigong. For my own books, I have writtewn over 40 books worth of fantasy/SF, including a 13-book series that clocks in at around 5.2 million words and 250 characters in total. Combined with my other novels (including one cyberpunk/horror/fantasy series and another ion the futuristic detective noir genre), I've written over 8 million words worth of stories for myself, and still increasing as I work on yet another project, this time with a partner.

Besides being skilled at intricately woven plots, my dialogue, descriptive prose, and engaging plots have been rated rather high.

You can also check out my website (, or for some newer stuff see if a web search for "Land Of The Hive" or "GT5 Steam League" pops up anything yet.

A note on my rates: I've listed an hourly rate because that's what the site asks for, but usually I charge by the page or estimated wordcount of the project. I talk with the client, we come to a fair estimate of the work, then I set the price in stone; if the project comes out longer or shorter, the pay doesn't change, and I tend to go for half paid up front and the rest upon completion (though other arrangemebnts are possible, but I still need some upfront money).
