Cryptic Fiction

Welcome to Cryptic Fiction. I created this site because I believe that the art of the story is fading.

For centuries tale-smiths passed down our history and inspired us, creating new worlds that excite our imaginations and explore our humanity.

I believe that we must not trade that vital part of ourselves and replace it with action movies filled with CGI, feeding our adrenaline but failing to satisfy our intellect. It's why I write, and I thank you for giving me an opportunity to reach out to you through my first love, the written word.
Noah's Ark
A Free Novel Project
Welcome to the Noah's Ark page. For many years this novel was part of my "lost stories" collection. Yet that doesn't capture the reason why I didn't finish it. In truth, and even though it stands as its own complete story, this novel has connections to  Azriel, the Angel Chronicles.

It's hard to describe this feeling of grim inevitability that wraps you up so tightly that it becomes hard to breathe. Yet I feel the story calling me.  Beware, dear reader! This isn't your typical story of good versus evil. This is full of amazing and terrible things!

Which begs the question. Why post this for free? It's simple. I want you to get to know me, and hopefully follow me for years to come. I also want the opportunity to share a conversation with you about the novel, because it is a work in progress.

So remember, it's not the Noah that humanity expects, but it just might be the Noah that humanity deserves...
