How do you create? I finished reading Storm of Swords and wanted more but George Martin takes a long time between books and I could not find anything fulfilling on bookstore shelves. Why aren’t more epic fantasies full of strategy, complex plot twists and deep characters? I went for a hike in the Columbia River Gorge and started thinking about what I really want in an epic fantasy saga. When I finished the hike, I had so many original ideas, I started writing and never really stopped. Twelve years later, my 7 book Silk & Steel Saga is finished. Now the world has a new epic fantasy adventure full of knights and swords, love and betrayal, sorcery and seduction. But a word of warning, this saga is not for the faint of heart, but for those who want serious characters with smart, complex plot twists. FROM THE INSIDE FLAP
