When Carahil, an Elemental Spirit, witnesses the destruction of an entire world, he’s faced with the ultimate question: how far is he willing to go to save it?
Carahil will gather friends-like Lord and Countess Blanchefort, renowned Fleet Captain and ex-Black Hat, to help. He’ll destroy lives, like that of Captain Davage’s best friend and first officer, Lt. Kilos, who is made to quit her job aboard the Seeker and go into the dreaded Hazards of the Old Ones: a place where only she can stand. Carahil will also search out disreputable sources like the scalawag Duke of Oyln, who has something malicious and wailing locked away in his dungeon.
To make matters worse, hidden forces threaten to destroy everyone Carahil needs to help him. Ominous messages from nowhere, surprise visits, phantom people and taunting voices complicate matters.
However, the most dangerous threat to this mission could be Carahil himself, who faces demonic transformation for getting involved and may upset the cosmic Scales of the Universe in a bad way. Carahil, though struggling to achieve a greater good, might be the cause of a horrific tragedy instead.
Hell awaits should he fail.

How long does it take to write a book? It took about 6 months to write The Hazards of the Old Ones. Some of the more recent books in the series took several years to finish.
Where do the picture for the cover art come from? All the covers for the series' come from a collaboration with the author and with cover artist, Carol Phillips. The author gives Carol several proposed ideas, usually scenes from the book, and she picks the one she wants to do. The cover for The Hazards came for a photograph I took of my wife, which Carol adapted. I've attached the picture.
Do you have a day time job? I do have a day job--a technical one. It's pretty unexciting.
Don't have to answer but do you come out even or are you able to make a profit writing? Writing is tough. Very few authors are able to write full-time. It takes a ton of hard work and you can't really expect to see a return on your efforts for years.
Have you ever had people read the book before it's published and then enclosed their comments on the jacket? All of the books are Beta-read prior to publication. I usually don't include reviews or positive testimonials on the covers. It's just not something I've ever done.
How hard is it to come up for the name of the book? Naming the books is usually pretty simple--they sort of name themselves. The only book I've ever had trouble naming is Book 3: The Dead Held Hands. It took forever to figure out a name for that one, I'm not certain way this is, though.
