“I chose to write a book for a number of reasons, and in the end, it was for the love of the story. As I put words to paper the characters came to life for me. I remember at one point going to bed and all I could dream about was the adventures the main characters were going on. It became exciting and very real.

In many ways I incorporated much of my own life experiences into the books I write. I wanted to convey what it was like for the warrior, the guy on the ground, fighting against nature with the odds stacked against him. I also wanted to show readers and fans of Norse mythology something they haven’t seen before.

I hope you enjoy the Marauder Series as much as I enjoyed writing it!”
