THE BAN OF IRSISRI
scheduled for release by Cobble Publishing, July 17, 2018

The Gauntletbearer, The Swordbearer, and The Tribesman. Three men with quests to save the world from The Gatekeeper, the man trying to rule it.

Long ago, with dusty rites and moldy tomes, a powerful artifact known as the Gauntlets was fashioned for a sorcerer's hands. Promising untold power, the Gauntlets were taken and concealed for safekeeping. For ages they were lost, but now, the sorcerer Raethir Del has tracked them down. If he ignores the Ban of Irsisri and takes them, he will rain death and destruction across the lands. Three men embark on separate quests, and only their actions can enforce the Ban of Irsisri and avert the rise of incredible evil.

Enkinor, bearer of the Gauntlets, lost to the world, imprisoned by a spell transporting him from one nightmare to the next. Visylon, warrior and Swordbearer, on whose power prophesied judgment depends. Longhorn, nomadic tribesman, charged with the impossible -- bringing these men together.

One must sacrifice desire for duty.
One must embrace healing over harming.
And one must escape the Dreamtunnel.

MISSING IN ACTION - 1863:
ANDREW JACKSON LACY
AND THE CONFEDERATE CAVALRY IN TENNESSEE

currently querying publishers

The greatest number of American soldiers missing in action occurred during the Civil War. Among the many thousands whose fate was unknown was my great-great-grandfather, Andrew Jackson Lacy, a Confederate cavalry officer who served under General Nathan Bedford Forrest. MISSING IN ACTION - 1863 is the story of his dedicated service to the Confederacy; the chaotic circumstances under which he disappeared behind enemy lines, only twenty-five miles from home; and the efforts to learn his fate.
