Shalaeyah means 'hello' in Tyra Tarkush. Tyra Tarkush is the 'first' language in the world of my book series. 'The Spine of the Empire', in that same world, is the communication network of the Empire, the organization and government of the races in the univers.
In this world, it is the website concerning all things related to my main book series, the Adventures of the Trinity and the One and its world. Here you can find updates on the series and in depth posts on pieces of the world, Carathoukiea.
The best way to get into my world and my work is to read it in release order (instead of chronological order). This means starting with How to Stop Wildfire and then continuing with the rest of the series. The early books of the series give you a good introduction of the world, and from there you can continue onto The Lost, my short stories, my spoiler-filled blog posts, and the Database.
The character artwork below was commissioned from various artists.
The series, its world, the characters, all of it, are things that I have developed over the course of my entire-thinking life. I love weaving narratives together, breathing life into these characters, and building this world up. This is the enduring passion of my life that has neither a clear beginning nor an end in sight.

Jurak was looking good, with really needing some tweaks to his feet. Nitocris needed some proportion changes and I gave more detail on how the building ought to look. The most important bit was the aspect...
I have launched a Kickstarter for a novella continuation of my Jurak’s Day short story. Consider that short story the ‘pilot’ and the Kickstarter for the full version of it. This is my first time using Kickstarter so I am very excited to see how it goes. You can back it here! The splash art was done by AR Sullivan.
