Creative Writing

It's an unassailable fact that any creative writer you talk to has a folder (either physical or digital) full of "to be completed" projects. Sadly, these projects hardly ever get finished because a writer will generally move on to the next exciting story. Here are a couple projects that I hope eventually see the light of day, but, who knows ...? 

"Fallen Harbor" is a pirate story - a revenge story - about a group of sailors chasing down the kraken that destroyed their home.

"Phoenix Hill" is a world-hopping adventure story in the spirit of Indiana Jones. Our hero visits strange, historic locales uncovering a dark secret.
