Nine mighty songs I learned from the great
son of Bale-thorn, Bestla’s sire;
I drank a measure of the wondrous Mead,
with the Soulstirrer’s drops I was showered.
-Havemal, translated by Olive Bray
Do you love stories? Me too. I’ve been in search of great stories since I was a child. Stories can inspire, they can uplift, they can reveal, they can tell us so much about who we are and what we believe.
Stories are how we learn, how we grow, and how we interact with each other and the world around us.
I write stories, mostly science fiction. I sometimes write about stories, why they matter, who they matter to, what makes them good, and how we can all tell good stories.
You’ll find some great stories here, and some of my thoughts on storytelling. Stay and read a while!
