A River Through Earth

The First Book of the Merchant Cities


From tundra to desert, from prairies to rainforests, the trade routes of Ganelerdos converge at Sparrenfor, Enelarmos, Larpektis, and Torg-ra-Honnet—the Merchant Cities. Fair exchange offers prosperity to the creative and industrious, whether human or elemental… and unearned riches to the ambitious and greedy.

Scorned by his father, mocked by his older brother, Woldirek Hansar rides with a caravan into a desolate wasteland. He emerges with a bold plan to make House Hansar the most prosperous family in the Merchant Cities. A plan to transform the continent of Ganelerdos forever.

Full of magical creatures, intrigue, battles, and true love, A River Through Earth brings readers into a compelling new world of modern fantasy.

 The Confederated Worlds

Take the Shilling
A Bodyguard of Lies (The Confederated Worlds, Book 3)

“Military science fiction [concentrating] on the psychology and politics of societies in conflict.”

The purpose of all other combat arms is to put the infantryman in sole possession of the battlefield.
A thousand years from now, while Earth sleeps in virtual reality, three polities—the Confederated Worlds, the Unity, and the Progressive Republic—strive to connect the scattered, terraformed worlds of humankind by artificial wormholes. When they meet, they clash, in a decades-long struggle of arms embroiling the settled galaxy, in which dedication to duty liberates worlds—and oneself.

A Bodyguard of Lies (Book 3)


“I’m reminded of Poul Anderson’s Dominic Flandry series, or more recently, Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Anniversary Day saga.”
Analog, on A Bodyguard of Lies
