It’s unclear where and when I began to want to write novels. It may no longer matter – the idea having been fixed so far back and so indelibly that it has become a permanent feature of my inner world. It is the thing, that in some ways, comes to explain everything else.


I have stood back from opportunities for advancement or adventure because I have wanted to save some large part of myself for the quiet pursuit of writing something truly good, something deserving of the gift of being alive and awake for this one brief passing time.


It may be then strange that writing has come to be, mainly, a hidden thing. I write under a pseudonym (however thin) and pursue my work out-of-sight. I have cultivated my ambition like a secret belief, a kind of mental reservation, that I declare to myself every time I am called to some other task: “Yes, I’ll do that, but this, this book, is what I’m truly doing…”


And each morning, if only for a few minutes of restless worry, I return to this advocation.

Consent  Vol. 1: Erdos

Erdos. On this world, there is no shared reality. The wreckage of centuries lies everywhere, and the people carry within them the scars of ancient wounds. It is here that a radical religion has taken root, one that may change the course of history.


Lemit, the famous gender alignment surgeon, has been exiled to Erdos from ser home planet Marda for an affair with a former patient. Alone and destitute, Lemit accepts a perilous mission to find the voice of this strange new religion.


Haunted by the death of a lover, Grist, the noted Mardan procurator of the civil residuum, has also returned to Erdos. Ser objective: to prevent an attack by the faithful that may be as inevitable as it is impossible to perpetrate.


Both will find Erdos an unforgiving place, a place where a violent history clings to everything, and where the meaning of events is, at all times, elusive.
