The Fringe

This book is the best of my life's work in the form of fifteen thoroughly edited, well crafted poems. There are a few completely new writings along with the revamped old ones. I hope they inspire and delight you all.All her short life, Lydia dreamed of being a baker. As an apprentice she greeted each day with joy and wonder. Until the day a magical little beast entered her predictable world, and turned everything upside down. Meeplar the fuzzling, a being of pure magic, singled out the young baker's apprentice and marked her as a mage-to-be. Filled with reluctance, Lydia must leave her happy life in the bakery and learn to control her mage abilities.

Hints

(hints) is a collection of ten poems. Each piece features a unique hint in parenthesis at the end of each title. These hints vary in how they are set up, and offer different views to consider while reading. Themes include specific religious beliefs, and a glimpse into my story of living with bipolar disorder. My goal with these poems is to walk the line where delusion and reality collide. Cheers.Status updating…Time and Space breached…Data leak detected…The archives of The Numbered Entity Project have opened in this membrane of existence for the very first time. Inside the, at once both infinitesimal and infinity-spanning, data stores wait the tale of rogues, outcasts and 'others.' Those whose time was numbered but refused to 'know their place.' Those who tried, for better or worse, to change their respective worlds of swords and magic, steam and musket, or nanotechnology. The Project records all, in tribute to Time and Space.Jaime has waited his whole life for the chance to change the world. Armed with a discrete bio-weapon, he prepares to assassinate the Great Sir of the Seven Systems and free millions from industrial serfdom. But Jaime is on a one way trip, a journey that will force him to sever his ties to the one he loves most. His ideals will be tested to breaking when brought to bear against that love, a love which could tear Seven Systems apart.

Tempting the Dark Psychedelic

These romantic poems contain layers of abstract treats. Placed in autobiographical order, they are fine tuned to expose readers to seemingly unreal - and sometimes scary - realms of the poetic mind. Just how far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go?Lustella is a bit of an outsider; she’s the symbol of perfection according to the great laws of the universe with her gentle nature and thousands of miniature stars about her physique, a sign of being blessed by the universe, but her heart is no longer in her home, instead, it’s in that of a faraway world inhabited by creatures that looked like her — Well, the other her. Through the Eyes of Oonai, the very tree that gives life to their world, she watches their day to day lives; living with them from millions of light years away. The more she visited Oonai, the more she longed to go to their world and experience the joys, laughs, and the adventures. She wanted to be a part of that and nothing was going to hold her back. In the tranquil world of Sairim, lies creatures birthed from the stars and marked by their Parent, the star that gave them life. These creatures formed the legend of spirit animals known to mankind today, but something in their world is about to change.
