Knights of Elevar

Knights of Elevar

Knights of Elevar collects the five part series into a single volume for the first time with a new short story, The Wedding of Sabeline Aesc, to complete the series.

Civil war rages across Elevar, from the ice wastes of Fjiorl in the North to the searing deserts of Kallamra in the South. Ilias Brand, Knight Commander of the Holy Order of Atar, the military and spiritual order which protects the Republic of Elevar, strives for peace and finds love.

Not everyone in Elevar is a noble knight or scheming senator. Against the backdrop of war there are those just trying to get by or to turn a profit.

Dream by Day

Dream by Day

Dream by Day is an instrumental album written as a four guitar orchestra. Each of my guitars has different tonal and playing characteristics so I figured they’d work well together as an orchestra.
