Rough Surface


Yara is a world on the verge of dying. Wracked by a cataclysmic event less than a decade ago, its inhabitants seek to restore Yara before it is too late. After the Cataclysm, the Empress Mosaline decided to purge all mages as it was determined that their mis-use of innate magic that draws from Yara herself was the cause of the death of their world. Now she must rely on one mage--the most powerful mage of their time--to solve a series of murders in a city that stands on the precipice of power and peace.

Robert is a certified nerd. He has been an avid D&D player/DM since the eighties. His first video games were Pong, Space Invaders, and Atari Football. He plays still--everything from Baldur's Gate 3 and Rome: Total War to Call of Duty and Division 2. He also enjoys playing modern board games with his adult children. But nothing supersedes his love of books.

Robert is a published author with over a dozen titles available in multiple genres. However, Robert has decided to focus on his first love, fantasy. 

Robert enjoys writing while blasting music and drinking copious amounts of diet sodas. Robert's current day job is teaching High School English.
