About the Book

When legends are lies and heroes fail, things are never what they seem.

Lade’s first attempt at thievery got him cast into the dungeons of Castle Vael.

Will his second attempt make him a hero?

Plucked out of the dungeons to save a princess from the rebels, the young thief is in way over his head. From the shadowy ruins of Xith Xanan to the deadly machinations of Castle Vael, Lade and his friends find themselves in a tooth-and-nail struggle for survival… if only they can keep from killing each other in the process.

In the midst of this rebellion, something far more sinister is brewing than mere kings and malcontents. As Lade will learn, the heroes of legends are made for nefarious purposes by men with power, thirsty for more.

It’s up to the outcasts to try to save a land bent on destroying itself. The Unsung Heroes.

Unsung Heroes is a fast-paced epic fantasy, but it’s still in progress. I’m looking for book lovers, beta-readers, graphic artists, and agents who’d like to share in the creative process, take a look, and tell me what they think.  Writing’s a labor of love, and I can’t wait to connect with my fellow fantasy fans.  Contact me with the form below.

Map of Eyrth

Using photoshop, some font downloads and some cartography freeware, I put together a tentative map for the setting of Unsung Heroes.  Making maps is kind of intense, did you know there’s an entire Cartographer’s Guild of professionals exclusively dedicated to making fantasy maps?  I had no idea.
