I am an amateur writer with a huge idea. This is not my job, it is more like a hobby. If it becomes nothing more, that is fine by me, but I believe I have something special here. I write my story, abbreviated FOTS, whenever I can. Book One is currently in the works, with a total of five novels planned when all is said and done. In this story’s cooking pot I throw in a haunch of The Peloponnesian War, pour in a tasty “A Song of Ice and Fire” sauce, sprinkle in just a hint of anime combat spice, and send it forward in time to a far away galaxy in a setting reminiscent of ancient Greece/Rome/etc. Trust me, you haven’t seen this before. It is fantasy with a subtle element of science-fiction, and in its vastness and great variety, everyone reading is able to find something for their own, something to connect with.

From start to finish, this will take years to complete. This blog is meant to be a showcase for previews and the like, in hopes of gaining some readers and their feedback. I will probably be more vague than you would like. I have to worry a little bit about protecting my work, and I would show more if I could, but please ask questions, make requests, and give feedback. I appreciate and read every comment.

So, let’s try and have some fun with this site, as bit by bit, you will come to learn about these wondrous stories that I am creating. Best of luck to all of you and your endeavours!
