While attending the University of Virginia I majored in Religious Studies, focusing on the belief systems of the Eastern world. During that time I also had the opportunity to read the works of Joseph Campbell. My love of gaming and for mythology led to the creation of a fantasy setting I named The Land of Caern.
It is a world where the gods can choose to be born into the world as mortals, and often do. It is a world where the conflict between religious faith and arcane magic has reached a breaking point. It is a world where demons have periodically crossed over through tears in the fabric caused during the ancient wars between the Children.
I have been writing for years (technical writing and training documentation mostly), but did not make the time to write for myself and my first love, fantasy.
The first three Land of Caern novels will detail events during the life of Arames Kragen, retired Aarronic Advisor and scholar of prophecy. His penchant for solving problems (or walking into the middle of them) will be your introduction to Caern.
