Selected Publications

This list doesn’t include a number of smaller publications, and projects covered by NDA. It also omits electronic games projects. Still, there’s a bunch of stuff and I probably forgot something.

If tabletop RPGs are your thing, here’s a DrivethruRPG search for my name. It doesn’t get everything (and for some reason, lists a Kobold Press thing I never worked on) but it’s not bad. You can find some of my fiction at Drivethrufiction as well. These are affiliate links, so using them helps me out. Thanks!
