About my writing
Writing is a labor of love. I’m sure you’ve heard that before and will likely hear it again. I write because I love it. Imagination can take you places you never dreamed of, or maybe you did but couldn’t remember. Since I was a little boy, I always had a powerful imagination, much to my mother’s annoyance. I’m certain it still annoys her. I’m not perfect, but I strive to make my writing as close to perfect as possible.
I wish to tell a story which climbs the emotional alps and sends you on a wild sled ride down into the depths of tragedy. I want to show ultimate beauty struggling like a moth in the grip of desperate darkness. I want to reveal the human soul and touch it as well.
There is beauty in the world and it will overcome darkness. There is truth to defeat every lie. There is good which eclipses all evil. This I believe and this I wish to reveal in my writing. Travel with me on my journey through the worlds of my imagination.

Haley Cork and the Blue Door
She is no different than your typical small town girl -- at least in appearance. When the Blue Door of Veselago needs someone to carry our its plans, it reaches out to a most unlikely person. The moment she steps through the Blue Door, Haley doesn't become the servant of an ancient war machine, but rather bends it to her own will so she can save humanity from the ultimate evil.
