I just learned about Sister Rosetta Tharpe this past week and that’s a shame. This woman could flat out play and sing. She did both better than most of the blues and rock legends of the time. Seriously, Chuck Berry doesn’t have anything on her.

Awesome stuff.

Up Above my Head
(A very obvious influence to King’s X – Over my Head)

That’s all

Didn't It Rain


The City of Pillars is now available as an audiobook!

A partnership formed. A friendship grew. Both are tested. Neither may endure.

Andrasta and Rondel have spent months in the city of Zafar, obtaining knowledge they will need to steal the famous Jewel of Bashan. Something goes wrong when pilfering an artifact crucial to their goal, bringing the wrath of the local authorities against them.

A beautiful woman helps them escape Zafar in exchange for their help recovering a family heirloom.

The seemingly simple job turns complicated as they learn the heirloom is in the possession of the feared Hubul’s Host, a band of warriors devoted to the Erban father of the gods.

The City of Pillars is the second volume in The Epic of Andrasta and Rondel.

Can U Deliver? (live)


A father. A mentor. A leader. Still, a soldier.

Wayward Soldiers: The Tyrus Chronicle - Book Two is now available! Click here for your Kindle now. A paperback version can be found here.

Wayward Soldiers is the second book in The Tyrus Chronicle. Two more books are planned for this series: Resurrected Soldiers and Forever Soldiers. Stay tuned for their anticipated release dates.

Here's the description for Wayward Soldiers.

Tyrus expected his world to change once the Geneshan War ended. He expected it to change more once he finally reunited with his family.

He did not foresee that the biggest upheaval to his world would be caused by Turine sorcerers tampering with an ancient Geneshan artifact in the capital city of Hol.

The land stands devastated and covered in a haze. Sorcerers are unable to use their power. The king and capital are likely destroyed. Raiders seek to profit in a world without law.

Tyrus decides that he must get his loved ones to the safety of the Southern Kingdoms if they are to have any chance of surviving.  The quick flight he plans turns into a labored journey when local townsfolk join his party. Expecting only new dangers now before him, Tyrus fails to anticipate old ones haunting his steps.

Wayward Soldiers is the second volume in The Tyrus Chronicle.

If you enjoy the story or any of my other works, please consider leaving a rating or review at the site of purchase as well as other places such as Goodreads and Librarything. Like many other indie authors, I do not have a marketing team working for me and a positive review (even if only a couple of sentences long) can go a long way in enticing others to give my works a try.

Thanks for the continued support!


I’m a huge Judas Priest fan. To me Rob Halford is the perfect metal singer. That being said, the two Ripper albums don’t get enough credit. For example, this track is not only one of my favorite Judas Priest songs, but one of my favorite songs of all time. Period.

I usually focus on lyrics last with any song, but this is a case where I’ve always felt a connection to them. I’ve played this song on repeat for like 10-20 times before (something I never do) when I’ve gone through some really dark stuff in my life. One of the few songs, I actually get chills from every time I listen to it.

FYI, a little NSFW in the beginning.

My favorite section is below.

Say my whole life I've always been disliked
Ignored unless you're spitting insults at me
And I don't know why you felt so justified
In all the degradation that you dished on me

Oh! Now my status has changed
And you've got yourself to blame
Oh! I'll grab all the attention I crave
Now I'm running Hell - Heaven won't be the same


The past few weeks have been beyond crazy. And though it’s going to stay that way for a while it seems, I’m going to try and get more consistent with blogging again.

So, I thought this song was fitting to the occasion.
