Jeweled Fragments

My first published book! Thanks to my editor Chad Christensen and artist Maria J. William, the cover turned out awesome! The title of the art used is "Who We Are." Maria was an excellent guest at WillyCon in 2009, and I have a framed copy of this piece hanging on my office wall. I asked her for permission to use it because it has both science fiction and fantasy elements, the same as my collection of stories. To see more of Maria's excellent art, visit Maria's web site...
