Published work

My 36 published credits fall into two categories: work I’ve done on products for my current RPG publishing company, Halfbeard Press, and on books for Engine Publishing, which I founded and ran from 2009-2019; and freelance work I’ve done for other companies in the RPG industry, 2004-2018 (plus my first article from 1990). My skill set includes writing, design, editing, development, art direction, indexing, publishing, cartography, layout, and proofreading.

I also keep track of fanzine work, playtesting, and interviews on this page, since they’re industry-related topics.

Halfbeard Press

I founded Halfbeard Press in July of 2022 to publish material for my Godsbarrow fantasy campaign setting. One of my goals is to handle as much of the production process as possible, learning new skills like layout and cartography along the way.

Engine Publishing

The six books I published while I ran Engine Publishing sold over 40,000 copies worldwide, both online and in retail game stores. Publishing these books, all about a topic of deep personal interest — system-neutral GMing advice — was a fantastic experience.

Freelance work

My freelance writing for the RPG industry has run the gamut from rules to pure setting material, I’ve worked with a wide range of publishers, and I’ve never missed a deadline.

The Gongfarmer’s Almanac is a non-profit DCC RPG community labor of love, and I had a great time working on this article.

In the same vein, I’ve also done a bit of credited playtesting and quite enjoyed it.
