the chronicler of Hagenspan


Background Information

I am a pastor of a couple of small churches in upstate New York. When I was younger I wrote over 400 songs and a book of poetry, but now that I am old, I have ventured into the world of fantasy fiction. My major influences as a fiction writer are as follows: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Stephen R. Donaldson inspired me with their creations of other worlds and mythologies.  Louis L'Amour gave me his romanticism and readability.  Larry McMurtry showed me how to create characters of depth and memorability.  From Frederick Buechner I learned how to write about spiritual longing, frustration, and desire.  And for good measure, a dash of A. A. Milne adds an appealing trace of whimsy.

Birth Place
Hornell, NY USA
Accomplishments

My first novel, "Roarke's Wisdom," was released in January 2006 by PublishAmerica. Volume Two in The Hagenspan Chronicles, "Kenyan's Lamp," was released in late 2006 from the same publisher.

Additional Information

I have several short stories available at Amazon.com as part of their Amazon Shorts program. They include "The Gauntlet," "The Meekening of Karalog the Loud," "Mott in Love," and "Grimmi the Kobold's Turrible Adventure."
