Thank you for supporting me on Patreon!

My goal is to write the best fantasy / sci-fi novels possible while I combine that with my history of awesome video games I've built, so that you can read about and play in a virtual world as good as or better than anything else out there.

When I first designed The Elder Scrolls: Arena, I wrote the equivalent of five novels of backstory to bring the world to life. It paid off, and the Elder Scrolls is an amazing world brought to life by the talented folks at Bethesda Softworks.

I learned in my career that you can't do enough prep work to bring a new world to life. Therefore, Mythborn is 600,000 word epic split into 5 books. I hope you enjoy all the amazing stuff we'll bring to this page, because your support is leading to something better than I could have done on my own. Your help is critical so I consider you part of the development team!

Some fun facts about me:
  • I was born in Ottawa, Canada during a family vacation. My father taught in Thailand, so we went back there as soon as my mother was released from the hospital. I'm starting to think my dad created a 'vacation' while my mom was 8.9 months pregnant because Canada has fantastic and FREE healthcare. Smart dad.
  • I spent my childhood in Bangkok, Thailand, getting up at dawn with the fishermen and going out on boats. All the kids would do this, essentially a ragtag group of sea urchins jumping from fishing ship to ship. The men would trail long nets behind the boat. If we fell off, we just grabbed the net and climbed back on. I was five, and I never forgot how that felt. 
  • When I was nine, my dad took me to a martial arts exhibition. My life changed forever. I saw people who seemed to be thrown to the ground in the blink of an eye. I saw boards broken, stones shattered. I saw what I wanted to do more than anything in life, train in the martial arts.
  • I dedicated the next four decades to mastering the martial arts, my quest taking me from Thailand, across the U.S. and Europe, to Hong Kong and China. In 1991 I earned my black belt and have clocked approximately 95,000 hours of training, thousands of hours fighting in the ring, and learned how to defend myself the hard way.

I've created over eighty-five (actually 87) titles in my career as a video game designer and architect of game-based learning software, but I spend most of my free time entertaining my insatiable curiosity. This includes researching almost anything on Google, building aquascapes in saltwater aquariums, and flying (and crashing) quadcopters.

Now you'll see the beginnings of that effort every week as we air, MYTHBORN LIVE!, a show where I discuss my various influences and inspirations for Mythborn, including games, books, sci-fi, and arcane facts. We'll explore mythology, fantasy, science, unsolved mysteries, and forgotten realms!

Because I'm constantly doing research, you'll get the latest information on some of the weirdest events happening in our world. Join me every week on my YouTube Channel -- MYTHBORN LIVE!

Thank you, patrons. Your help allows me to invest in a better setup for recording videos, doing research, and keeping my promise to deliver great content. Your generosity is truly altruistic, one that hearkens to the patrons that funded artists throughout history.

PATRONS keep art alive!

Thank you again!

Vijay needs your help to continue writing the Mythborn series. As a patron, you'll get access to tons of content including video blogs that describe his writing process, martial arts techniques, strange but true facts, and investigations into everything that can't be readily explained.

Hopefully, no men in black, red, or worse... visit him.

Hi everyone! Join me as I discuss a crazy amount of stuff, from writing tips to video games, to the paranormal and unsolved mysteries. Yes, all of this in some way inspired Mythborn, but more importantly, all of this is just neat stuff that makes you think.


Most importantly, while many sites go over unsolved mysteries and other neat subjects like cryptids, conspiracies, ufos, men in black, yetis, vampires, nanotechnology, science as magic, and more... they are often out of date, without the latest findings that either support or refute claims.


Because I'm constantly researching the latest info, you'll get updates on what actually is happening, what the latest theories are, and whether or not you should buy that [game, book, movie]!


Your patronage allows me to keep the lights on, do the research, and create videos that are of better quality, so I sincerely appreciate your support!


Join me as we dive deep into the world of Mythborn as seen through the lens of mythology, fantasy, science, and the paranormal, every week on MYTHBORN LIVE!
