King of the Storm
MM Romantic Fantasy Novel
Projected Release Date: November 2015
I wrote King of the Storm after playing in a Greek-themed Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I wanted to explore the boons and banes of Greek divinity, so I decided to play Perseus, a son of Zeus because…he had a flying horse *laughs*. I made him into a paladin, and when we transitioned the game from D&D Next (which we didn’t like) to 4E, I made him into a storm paladin.
Even though Ancient Greeks had no concrete concept of homosexuality and heterosexuality, in lore, Perseus was probably the most straight of all the demigods. I took his story and made it gay, gay, gay. I’m sorry, Perseus (the legend).
Another inspiration for my novel was X-Men. Like demigods, mutants have to negotiate their power and the curses that come along with it.
My novel is a Greeky D&D fantasy, with a thread of romance. Mostly it’s about a man trying to negotiate his internal conflicts with the gods, and get what he wants out of life.
