Tantamount is a historical fantasy set in Britain during the sixth century. The story follows one man’s journey through the struggles and effects of violence.
Tolan Fising is a farmer living a peaceful life with his wife, son, and daughter. He has spent his life trying to avoid violence, which took his father’s life when Tolan was a young boy.
Tolan has done everything he can to protect his land and farm, while keeping his family safe. This all changes when a conflict between kings forces him to make a decision that will alter his family’s future.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always wanted to write a novel. A story had been gradually developing in my mind for a few years, so I knew it was time.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I came up with their general characteristics before I started writing, but their personalities quickly developed once I began writing.
“Father,” Kenric whispers, “will I have to help with the crops this year?”
“Definitely,” Tolan replies. “Your grandfather taught me almost everything I know about farming by age 11, and I had to learn even more when he passed away.”
“Grandfather was a famous warrior, though, not a farmer,” Kenric says.
“He was both – a good farmer, but most certainly a great warrior,” Tolan says.
“I want to be a warrior like Grandfather!” Kenric shouts.
Tolan glances at Leila while taking a deep breath, and then he looks directly at Kenric, who can see that his father doesn’t share his excitement.
“If your grandfather had only been a farmer, perhaps he would not have died so young while fighting for others,” Tolan says.
