I write science fiction, fantasy, and horror in both short and long forms; I've published short fiction in NATURE, THE NASSAU LITERARY REVIEW, and COSMOS, been anthologized in FUTURES FROM NATURE, and twice won Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future contest. By day I'm a cognitive neuroscientist.
Much is not well in Altronne. The shadow government that controls the Champions has bloodily ousted its own leader; a capitalist-prince who funds sedition has eluded the police; the strange beings that support the city's unstable geology have begun to slip their chains. And the Dandelion Knight wants to give Mireille her memories back. No strings attached.
It's too good to be true, of course. But tampering with the Champions is high mischief -- and with high mischief come great spoils for the Champion who thwarts the plot...
The Dandelion Knight is a post-post-apocalyptic science fantasy. Its conclusion, The Flame in the Stone, will appear in late 2014.
