"The novelist says in words what cannot be said in words." --Ursula K. LeGuin
Derek writes works of Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction. He has always been drawn to the capacity of such speculative genres to explore the mechanics of our own world in a detached environment. Plus magic, monsters, and aliens are cool! While he is still working on that first novel, pick up his e-book novella from Storm Moon Press. It represents a foray into Fantasy Romance, an area he found quite fun to work with. There will be more to come.
