The Talon of the Unnamed Goddess (originally The Talon of the Raptor Clan) was my first published novel thanks to much help from my co-author, J. R. Tomlin–an award-winning Historical author. The novel was a 2010 EPPIE Fiction/Fantasy finalist.
My fantasy books cover a wide variety of protagonists, environments and magics.
What distinguishes one protagonist from another is their unique upbringing–the forge that makes each who they are. Their worlds vary from ancient times–swords and horses–to modern times–AK-47s and cars.
The magic in each story is unique, sometimes mental and other times physical. I prefer limited and conservative powers because I believe that makes it easier to imagine and more realistic. For example a wizard with the ability to create and throw fireballs if limited in time to create and throwing distance you could imagine as a person with a flame-thrower.
