What you’ll see below, and in the future, are a mix of Posts from the original It Is What It Is blog that ran from 2011 to 2017, along with new Posts representing my current life and where I am as a Writer today. I’ve removed many of the original Post but kept some that I thought you would find interesting.

I would appreciate any comments on the Posts that you feel inclined to share.

Dragon Tales: A Rich Man’s Son

It was well after dark, and Ifan Glyn hurried home while the unusually windy night did its best to make him even later. Father would surely be angry. It was the second time this week. But the light! It had been a burning orb that radiated a brightness that should have seared his eyes, but he couldn’t turn away and stared wide-eyed into the blinding glow. When it had faded his eyes were not burned—not even lingering spots or […]

Dragon Tales: The Unworthy Priest

The sun beat down and he scooted further back on the stone slab under the hanging limbs of the lone Whisper Glen that grew behind the rock. Like the outlandish tree, Gened-Jin was a curiosity in the southern lands of Avanis. He rested against the twisted trunk and enjoyed the rough surface.

Maeveen and the Oma stood and helped Revin to her feet. She knew she should be exhausted, but instead felt energized. In contrast, the jewel of her staff had dulled. Her body tingled as she realized her senses were enhanced, her sight clearer, the smell of the burnt ground stronger. But there was something else—another sense—one she couldn’t name. She could feel something about the women to either side of her. It was like a

Ashes of the Dragon: The Sentinel

A loud roar, one that made the rumbling of the ground sound like a whisper, announced the arrival of the Gold. The Sentinel flew in over the forest across from Revin, and she watched as it swooped down over the villagers, gliding not ten feet off the ground toward the circle of women. A flying dragon!
