New author photo_Sept_14

I am an award-winning playwright, video game writer, documentary film executive producer and narrative designer.

I am the author of The Wisdom of the Shire, a guide to life for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien that’s been translated into 8 languages and praised by Kirkus Reviews as a “Must-have” for fans of Middle-earth. I blog about all things Tolkien on shirewisdom.com. Order the book from one of these online retailers.

My action/adventure epic The Warrior Trilogy is published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press. The first two volumes in the series, Sons of Zeus and Spartans at the Gates, are now available in hardcover, ebook (Kindle/Nook) and unabridged audio. Book 3–Sword of Apollo–is coming in June, 2015.

“Noble Smith gobsmacked us with Sons of Zeus! Terrific action, with a wickedly brilliant plot, visceral combat, and nail-biting treachery, even the love story in Sons of Zeus is going to have you on the edge of your seat.” –NYT bestselling authors Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear on Sons of Zeus

Books 1 and 2 have been translated into Greek and will soon be coming out in Portuguese and Italian.

My articles about J.R.R. Tolkien have appeared online in the Huffington Post (US and UK), as well as the fantasy/sci-fi site Legendarium. I have worked on video games for Warner Games/Snowblind, Vivendi Universal, Bungie Studios (Destiny) and Microsoft Studios. I co-host the D&D nostalgia blog Dungeons & Dorkwads with author Ethan Gilsdorf.
