This is the story of four young people and what happens when their dreams take hold.
- Daphne – Ranger Apprentice-in-training
- Doris – Wizard Apprentice-in-training
- Danny – Knight Apprentice-in-training
- Pete – Janitor Apprentice-in-training
Friends since early childhood, the night before they graduate and assume their appointed roles they get together at a local pub to toast their upcoming new lives.
Late in the evening Pete tells of a dungeon his boss declined to clean because it was too dangerous for his janitorial crew. There are rumors of a great treasure hidden in the dungeon and Pete is convinced he and his friends should clear out the dungeon and find the treasure. Everybody else in the group has heard of other dungeons that are now unused because of monsters and decide to quit their apprenticeships and go into business for themselves.
Clear out dungeons and collect the treasures — how hard could it be?
Now open for business…

No Dungeon Too Dangerous!
This weekend I’m working on the first of many short stories that will stand alone, but will also fit together with one all-encompassing story arc. Think of watching an episode of your favorite TV drama. While part of the storyline may have to do with things that happened in the last episode, and things that will happen in upcoming episodes, you can usually watch any episode by itself and still be entertained.
That’s what I’m aiming to do with Troupers.
It’s going to be a fantasy series and the focus is going to be on action and adventure. I don’t intend for it to be “great literature” although if that happens by accident I’ll still accept credit for it. 😉
Instead, the story is the main thing, not poetic wording. The adventures the characters have is more important than great writing.
Don’t get me wrong, I have no intention of churning out garbage. But what I’m looking for is someone to read it and say, “That was fun! When’s the next one coming out?”
That will mean more to me than someone saying it was “great literature.”
I hope to release the first of the Troupers stories within the next 30-60 days and I can’t wait for you to read them!
They’ll be available as downloadable ebooks and I’ll post links here as soon as they’re ready.
