The Dogwood Legacy

Please bear with me for just this one post while I indulge in some shameless self-promotion (something, incidentally, with which I am uncomfortable) by giving a  brief overview of a trilogy I have written. It is The Dogwood Legacy, and it has been available on Amazon and Kindle since late May of this year.

The first book of the series is Jacob Leviathan, set in the Ozark Mountains of the midwestern United States. This is my personal re-invention of a real Ozark legend involving an imaginary beast called a jimplecute (or jimplicute, as I have chosen to spell it). It is, therefore, a fabricated folktale.  Click here for sample chapters.   Click here to purchase on Amazon or Kindle.Nathan_Turner_Cover_for_Kindle

The second book is Nathan Turner. It is an urban legend of my own creation and takes place in the midwest.  Click here for sample chapters.   Click here to purchase on Amazon or Kindle.


The third book is Obadiah Holt, and it is my attempt at a trans-continental myth. It was also inspired by Kaiju (enormous beast) stories.  Click here for sample chapters.  Click here to purchase on Amazon or Kindle.

Collectively, these three books comprise an invented mythology with which I am honestly pleased as an author. I apologize if this post seems inordinately self-serving. But, hey, I believe in what I have written, and I want people to read it.


Obadiah was a gray, weathered block of a man, one with a peculiar heritage. He was an experienced boatman and a lighthouse keeper by trade. More importantly, this reticent and obdurate individual was also a teacher in need of a student, and his opportunity to pass on the craft of his ancestors wandered onto his pier in the form of a small, neglected girl with exceptional capabilities of her own. Confronted by a mythical monster of unfathomable wickedness, they would embark on a quest for something even more formidable, something in which an unprepared world no longer believed. But first, this magnificent creature had to be located and awakened.
