Draugr’s Saga - Volume 1

Tales of the Zombie Apocalypse in the Viking Age

Back in Viking times, or more accurately, the Early Medieval period, the Draugr were an evil and malevolent force. They were like Zombies, but with powers like modern day Vampires. They were NOT stupid shambling corpses. They were fast, cunning, and above all - Evil. 

Draugr's Saga - Volume 1

After battling a storm in the North Sea, a horde of Vikings make landfall on a mysterious island, only to discover an Evil far more terrible than themselves! 
It’s Erik Ragnarsson’s first summer raiding season. With his new ship Ottar, and his very own crew, Erik sets out for glory and wealth. A freak storm blows them off course and when they make landfall, things are not as they seem. 
Erik and his foster brother, Aedan, must work together to battle fellow crew, and a great evil stalking the island!


Set in Dark Ages England, Scotland, and Ireland, Draugr’s Saga is a series of stories about a former Viking slave, Aedan. Adopted as a blood brother by Erik Ragnarsson, Aedan must find a way to stem the tide of the Draugr, which may bring about the Zombie Apocalypse of the Viking Age. 
Throughout the Draugr’s Saga, Aedan enlists new friends and allies, makes dangerous enemies, and even finds love, as he travels Dark Ages Britain in a hopeless quest to stop the ancient Draugr King. 
Draugr’s Saga weaves the most exciting threads of Norse Mythology, Celtic Mythology, Zombie Apocalypse fiction, all steeped in the gritty and violent Viking age. Though a dangerous time, it was a time of magic, a time when Viking Gods still roamed the land; it was a time when men and women travelled the spirit roads of Yggdrasil and divined their Wyrd with the Viking Runes. 
Equal parts Historical Fiction, Epic Fantasy, and Norse Mythology, Draugr’s Saga explodes off the pages with gut-wrenching action and mind-bending magic. 

Star Viking Intro

This short podcast is an introduction to my novel "Star Viking - The Tribes of Yggdrasil: Book 3" In this intro, we catch up with the history between Star Fury (Book 2) and the current novel, as eight years have elapsed.

Read about the first two books at my website:

The Elves and the Cobbler

This is one of the Classic Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales that I recorded for my niece and nephew last year. I thought you folks might enjoy sharing this with your kids. Enjoy!

The Elves and the Cobbler or The Shoemaker and the Elves is an often copied and re-made 1806 story about a poor shoemaker who receives much-needed help from elves.

The original story is the first of three fairy tales, contained as entry 39 in the German Grimm's Fairy Tales under the common title "Die Wichtelmänner".
