Stewart, and contains a diverse selection of verse, structured under the headings of Scotland, My Scotland, Irish Ramblings, Celtic Influences, The Moon, The Sea, Art, Nature, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Wonder, Human Emotions, In the Shadow of Death, Humour, and Miscellaneous Musings.

I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada and I have been practicing the craft of writing for several years, periodically interrupted by pesky events from life. I am an independently published author, with an overly creative mind and an active imagination. My main focus is in the fantasy and horror genres, with an avid interest in history and mythology, themes I often work into my books and stories.
My interests include writing and reading (of course), history, sci-fi and fantasy, and painting. I love movies, especially action films and I collect sword replicas.
I have several published books including my third volume of poetry, Reflections of Poetry, a paranormal romance/horror novella, Gothic Cavalcade, the dark fantasy novella, Ruined City, a horror novella, Chronicles of the Undead, the short fiction collections, Killers and Demons, Once Upon a Dark and Eerie..., Passing Fancies and Inside Realms, two volumes of dark poetry and non-fiction action movie guides. All my books can be found at online retailers like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Lulu.com and Smashwords.
Some of my upcoming books include the short fiction collection, Fractured Fairy Tales and Other Stories, the next book in my Incomplete series, The Incomplete Guide to Monster Extermination, and the first book in a steampunk fantasy series, The Duke's Assassin.
