Fine-ish Art

I never said it was great art…just fine-ish. To view the gallery, check out the ETSY store link below. I’m adding more and more as I create, so unless the creative juices stop flowing, there will be more to see.

What’s New?

Castles, the first novel I wrote, has been picked up by Black Rose Writing for a July 2018 release. I’ve added a few needed elements and smoothed out the story. There’s also a new cover coming.
