About the Author
Author, video gamer, martial artist, programmer
This book started over twenty years ago as a disjointed collection of video game fan fiction, around the same time that I briefly trained in taekwondo. I quit both when my grandmother passed away. More than seventeen years later, in my mid-thirties, I restarted my martial art instruction. As I neared my black belt testing, I thought of what other projects I started and never finished. As with Lone, that was a long list. It took close to three years but I ended up with a story and characters I enjoyed writing about. I have the people and places of Poas in my mind and through the magic of writing, I can invite others to join me there.
