Other Experience


Rumblings in Remardan by J.S. Gholson

• My first published book when I was 21.

• Over 68,000 words which I wrote, edited, and self-published.

• A deep fantasy world which revolves around a land where humans are serfs to dwarves.  All dwarves are nobility or rich, while one family of dwarves are also serfs like the humans.  It follows the son, Ineptius, as he delves into this world getting ensnared in political and magical traps.  Aside from this, he also has to deal with his own mental health.
