Portals of Infinity
The purpose of this page is
to provide information to the readers of my Portals of Infinity series. As new books
are written and released, I will start adding information to this page about
things that are not in the books, that people might wish to see. If there is
something you would like to see me add here, please drop me an email.
(Please note that this page is
under development. I don't really have a lot of time to work on it, so it's
kind of crude. I'm using MSWord as I'm tired of coding raw html in vi)
Current Books Available:
Book 1: Champion
Book 2: The
Book 3: Of
Temples and Trials

Sea of Grass

Nikki's Story is
currently available as a freebee in the 'free stuff' section of this website
(Note: Currently all of my ebooks are only
available on Amazon; Print and (the first two) Audible(ACX) versions are
available elsewhere. The reason for this is simple: In order to be in KU I have
to be exclusive to Amazon. I sell more books in KU, than all other book sellers
combined. Doubled. Times 100. If Amazon ever does away with the exclusivity
rule, I'll go back to selling on the other platforms)
an infinite number of worlds, or realities if you prefer, and they are all
interconnected in a vast network of portals often referred to as 'The
Infinite'. No one knows exactly why the portals exist, but the gods claim it is
to balance the power and energies between the different realities or 'spheres'.
Worlds tend to be connected to ones that are similar, but not always.
select people are able to perceive these portals, and travel through them.
Traveling through a portal remakes you, if necessary, so that you fit in to the
world you have entered. Because every world has its own rules, be they rules of
physics, metaphysics, religion or magic, and every world has its own time,
history, and politics. This means that even though some may appear similar,
each is unique, and some can be very different than others.
contain gods and goddesses, and they too are bound by the rules of both their
realms and the Infinite, as they play their own games, for their own reasons,
and seek to increase both their power, and their religions. Some of these gods
have Champions, people who have sworn themselves to them, and in exchange, have
gained power and powers, for as long as they stay.
Works in Development:
Several people have wanted to see the maps of some of the
places in the Portals of Infinity story line. I do have really poor quality pencil
ones I work from (Dammit, Jim, I'm a writer, not an artist!) and below are my
attempts at putting them up here. Sorry if they're not very good.
(Maps should be clickable for larger size).
Portal Link Map
Hiland is in the southern hemisphere, well south of the
equator. The country to the south is very mountainous, there are some
city-states and small independent towns in the mountains. This map isn't
exactly to scale, it's a redraw of a smaller one that I've been using, which is
a lot cruder.
Hillshire is the name of the Kingdom in this sphere where
William first ventured, and where Aryanna holds sway. Which is why the sphere
is referred to as 'Hillshire'. From the west coast to the east coast of
Hillshire is over 2000 miles, as kingdoms go, it is extremely large, the
largest on the continent. There is a smaller country to the south, and several
more to the north, on the same continent.
