Fantasy on a Distant Planet

Themes of My Fantasy

Welcome to Here you can learn more about my stories and the themes behind them.

I write fast paced fantasy adventures—often science fantasy set on distant planets, or contemporary fantasy set on Earth. Magic and science, our relationship with nature (both animals and plants), and aspects of spirituality combine in my stories.

By spirituality I mean the connection people feel to the world around them (including a connection with nature), about the search for meaning in life, and the connection with something bigger than us. I'm curious about the world and about meaning within our lives.

Rebirth is one of the themes of the Blue Prometheus Series.

Young Aina by Ned MarcusThe story begins deep in the ancient forest several years before the start of Blue Prometheus.

If you'd like an introduction to my fantasy world, you could begin with the stories Young Aina and The Huntress of Prometheus—free when you sign-up to my newsletter. They introduce Aina and the planet of Blue Prometheus, where the the larger adventure begins several years later. Alternatively, you could begin by reading Blue Prometheus.
