The Legend of the Lumenstones – 1

The Lightbearer


available in eBook and paperback

“The Lightbearers called them Deathrocks, for that is all they wrought…”

Mattoby the Gat believes he has discovered a Lumenstone in Lependore, the boggy
city of men. If he is right, evil has found a new foothold in the world. To answer
the challenge, he calls together a gathering of people from the surrounding nations.
His motley crew ranges from Loni and Dovni, the short men of Hill Country, to Lorien
Andumae, the last of the Valdaren Lightbearers and the only one with the power
to destroy the cursed rocks.

This mismatched group of heroes will set out on a quest to uncover the secret of
the Lumenstones…
if they can first survive witches, young dragons, a Valdaren banquet and
each other.


The Legend of the Lumenstones – 2


available in eBook and paperback


“I am Reglan,” said the captain. “No Matter, know this…
Your flesh will not be wasted.”

Mattoby the Gat takes his motley crew on a quest to uncover the secret of the Lumenstones and the evil forces unleashing them. On their journey, they encounter the disturbing Goblin Haunts, battle a group of witches and struggle to survive hostile terrain and each other’s tempers.

Their path takes an unexpected turn when Anditor, the young son of Vidor, describes his encounter with Reglan, the Lord of the Werewolves, and the chest of stones aboard his pirate ship…

…a story that will lead the nine into peril.


The Legend of the Lumenstones – 3

The Flesh Eater

available in eBook and paperback

Mattoby the Gat leads his motley crew on a quest to steal the chest of Lumenstones off the ship of the feared Werewolf Lord, Reglan, so the rocks can be destroyed. First, they must sail the Undulan Sea on an unlucky boat, survive an encounter with a shape-shifting enchantress and her deadly daughters, escape a cursed thicket, and fight their way through the lawless city of Croteagin.

Waiting for them at the end of that journey is Reglan’s ship, The Flesh Eater, and a battle with his crew of the damned.

All proceeds from the sales of this book go to fund art programs for children in juvenile detention centers.


A Haiku for Ricky Baker, a book of poetry including pieces telling the stories of neglected and endangered children like Ricky Baker, the young protagonist in the 2016 Taika Waititi film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is now available at Amazon. The seeds for the book were planted when selections of my writing were used with at-risk youth to foster artistic expression and encourage creative outlets for healing and growth. To read more about the inspiration that led to the project, visit my post “Ricky Baker”.

Every child deserves a chance at a happy and productive life. A Haiku for Ricky Baker is an expression of the cut I’m making in the roots of child abuse.
