Author has written 7 stories for Pride and Prejudice, Kingdom of Heaven, Forgotten Realms, Battle: Los Angeles, Hunger Games, and Halo.

I am an author from Canada who has an interest in stories of adventure, discovery and romance. I love Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Jane Austen books for instance. I also like movies such as Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Avengers and Captain America (and Tangled!). While I don't spend a lot of time with video games I have enjoyed the world of Skyrim a lot as well as the Halo franchise. Basically, any story, regardless of medium, that challenges me to look beyond myself, to strive for something bigger and to believe in the seemingly impossible interests me.

Why do I write?

In this world where there is so much pain, suffering, lonliness and misery there is a need for stories that cause us to hope and to believe. Its my desire to write these types of stories so the genre may be historic, fantasy or otherwise but they will always challenge us to seek after the heroic ideal in our life and the world around us. From this I hope it causes us to go into the world around us, let our lights shine, and make this a better place.

I hope you will join me on this journey!

UPDATE:

My new story, Halo: Wolf Pack has now been released! My commitment is to release a new chapter every two weeks at minimum until completed. Thanks again for all the encouragement to do this follow up novel. I truly wouldn't be doing this if not for you, the readers. I hope you enjoy Mike B312's new journey!

January 25/16

I am pleased to announce that a sequel to my popular story Halo: Noble Wolf is in the works. I have been writing for over a month now and plan on launching the story the beginning of February at latest. My commitment is then to release a new chapter at minimum every other week. I appreciate all the notes and encouragement to do this over the past year and appreciate your patience as I struggled to work through some distractions to get back to writing. I'm very excited about the new story and I hope you will be too. Thank you all for your support.

January 1/15 Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for all the interest in my story Halo: Noble Wolf. I appreciated the support and encouragement from everyone, the response was pretty overwhelming. I'm on a bit of a writing hiatus right now but will be looking for my next project in the next little while. I've had encouragement to do a sequel but we'll have to see what I feel led to. Until then, keep dreaming big!

August 9/13

My newest story, Halo: Noble Wolf has just been released. In the same tradition as Battle Los Angeles: Legacies this is a story of the challenges of moving beyond the past and the limitations of legacy under the pressure of war. My intention is to post one chapter a week.

The story of Noble Six of Halo Reach fame comes alive as we meet the man behind the visor. Spartan B-312 is Mike Nantz, a man trying to live out a family legacy and live down his lone wolf reputation. When he’s assigned to Noble Team he sees an opportunity for redemption. But his interactions with the team and Natalia Misriah, the headstrong, wealthy daughter of a UNSC munitions supplier are only made more complex when the Covenant attack Reach. Find out what really happens to Noble Six and how he came to be who he is in this story.

I hope you will enjoy this novel-length presentation as it unfolds.

I am Thresh, I am a survivor reviews
This four part story tells the tale of what actually happened to Thresh in the 74th Hunger Games. Told from his perspective, it looks at how he got into the position he did and examines some key events of the Games from his eyes. The ending may be a surprise but then so was Thresh because he played the Hunger Games his own way!

Perfect Love a short story reviews
A short story in the Jane Austen tradition. Though the characters are not from P&P they do end up sharing many of the same opportunities and consequences of an unlikely relationship crossing class boundaries.
