Q. What is Shuke's War About?

A. "A great bog separates two mystical lands, one hostile with dragons and the other more pleasant with magical territories at every turn. Three goblins are seduced to lead a giant army of deformed goblin soldiers on a distant planet where a crazed wood sorcerer, and bizarre mushroom wizard do battle. A war breaks out with the goblins and a gathering army of light soldiers who are ascending from flesh to pure energy. Atop the great mountain where the fighting takes place sleeps "Shuke", a young dragon born on the new world."

Author's Inspiration

The novel was born out of frustrations from dealing with PTSD and RTS. The full story about why those afflictions are bothering me can be found at!

This novel began without any story concept, just a vision and a description. Eventually it was a rich new world with texture and color, hidden mysteries and many new places to explore! There is a multi-galactic plot which developed naturally with the storyline as it 'came out'. The entire work wound up being fairly simplistic in its plot-- this is not advanced war strategy, or deeply embroiled love affairs with sub-twists and bizarre competition, it is not a great work of storytelling in its intricacies or grand overall storyline. But, it is very visceral, action packed, organic and has an extremely intense last 70 pages or so when the battle finally commences!
