About me

I started my creative endeavors with Radio Retrofuture on Youtube, where I discuss Steampunk and retrofuturist fiction. For the last couple of years, I have been working on a series of Steampunk books and comics in collaboration with various illustrators called The Association of Ishtar. 

In February/March 2023 I intended to launch the Kickstarter for my second book, Bound for the Styx.
