About the Novelette:

kingstethercoverlodropDiscover the roots of the Chained Gods Series in this 6,000 word prequel story to the paranormal world of 17-year-old Baylee and her crew.

In a rare moment of inactivity, the dog rested his head on his front paws. The thick logging chain weighed heavily across his body as he pulled his back legs from beneath the oppressive steel. His eyelids drooped, and even though his feral mind urged him to remain vigilant, told him he was in constant danger, sleep had its way with him anyway.
With sleep came relief.

In the waking state his mind knew only bloodlust and revenge, his body hunger and thirst, and his heart pain and sorrow. In slumber his consciousness freed itself from its bonds, and he revisited an immortal life once known—only to lose the beloved memories upon reawakening.

The ultimate cruelty.

He dreamt of a woman. It couldn’t be just any woman; according to the Prophetess, he would know her when he saw her. His brain, his heart, his mind—they all called out for her, whispering of bonds and mating rituals and a shared future that was theirs and theirs alone.

A kick to the ribs lurched him from the dream, and the woman slipped away from him, again…Grab The King’s Tether to read more and start your Chained Gods Series adventure today!

About the Book:

shapeshiftercoverlo-drop“I wanted to be the hero of this story, but instead I am the villain.”

Two worlds intertwine in this second of the “Our Side” Collection, where Mediators, Protectors, and Listeners travel the countryside of a simpler world to bring justice and harmony—yet outliers, dragons, ghoblainns, and shapeshifters bely the truth of a society that may not be so simple after all.

Meanwhile, on the “Other Side”, teenagers engage in the age-old ritual of cafeteria wars as they search for a place in modern society, and social hierarchy means everything to girls left on the outside with no way in.

How do these seemingly conflicting worlds collide, and who will turn out to be the self-described “villain”?

Find out in “The Shapeshifter’s Tale”, a story at once thought-provoking and intriguing, for young teens through adults and all those brought into the world of the “Other Side” through “The Listener’s Tale”.

About the Book:

wrathcover-lodropAn animal activist teenager finds out there’s more to the chained dog next door than meets the eye in The Wrath of Dog…

The hairy beast growled and lunged at Baylee, his rusted logging chain straining to break—like it did every morning she cut down his back alley.

She hadn’t dubbed him “The Wrath of Dog” for nothin’.

She’s vowed that someday she’ll free Wrath and they’ll rise up and smite his obviously nasty owner. For today, though, she just needs to get past him without dying and make it the two blocks to class before the bell rings and she has another detention headed her way.

Wrath’s plight is soon forgotten when her refusal to dissect a kitty earns her another trip to Principal Baird’s office. Things go from bad to worse, and before long she’s hearing voices in her head, decamping the school premises with a band of un-zombie cats, and learning that The Wrath of Dog is a lot more than she bargained for.

Next thing she knows she’s avoiding her best friend, learning she’s not quite human, and taking on an unseen enemy to save the day, her family, and just maybe two worlds in the process.

Becoming an adult sure isn’t what she thought it would be…

About the Book:

listenercover-loAnna didn’t even know she had an aunt. Aunt Moira had appeared the day after Anna’s parents died in a car crash: a tall grey figure through the screen door, silhouetted against the bright sun. The neighbors welcomed her—they were relieved to get Anna off their hands and into the custody of a relative.

But Anna hadn’t warmed to her aunt or her pug, whose eyes eerily tracked Anna’s every move. Something wasn’t right; her investigation leads to a world she’s never seen and even more relatives who live in a quirky village—a village where singers dance in the sky, the elders are hundreds of years old, and everyone has access to magic.

At first bemused, then charmed, Anna settles in to live with her new-found relations—and unravel the mystery of who is trying to kill her.

The Listener’s Tale is a charming fantasy for young teen readers or the young at heart.

About the Book:

cold fog in mountain village at nightHow would you spend your time if you died and found yourself in Limbo? Most see Purgatory as a kind of in-between afterlife for people who didn’t rate Heaven and don’t deserve Hell. The author’s Limbo is a ghost town that includes animals that had been killed by humans: a dog, some cats, cows, chickens, and wild creatures, too. The animals are content with their lot in the afterlife, but the humans have an infinity of time on their hands and not enough to do. They think about the big issues, of course: the nature of God, how they screwed up in life, and how they can escape Limbo and get into Heaven.

But no one can spend all their time thinking higher thoughts, so mostly they do what they did in life: they gossip, they get on each other’s nerves, and they play poker.

Darla runs the village politics like a PTA Mom. Emmanuel, who has a wonderful singing voice, most enjoys fellowship with the cows. The Preacher, still in his hospital gown, gathers a congregation and makes it up as he goes along. Warren, a former college professor, seeks something to study in a bookless afterlife. You’ll meet The Naked Man, Lily, Traveling Jack, The Chinese Lady, and Trey, a quadriplegic who is freer in death than he was in life. Seventeen-year-old Alyse, the newest person to join the village, decides to bring everyone together by throwing the Limbo equivalent of a neighborhood block party.

If you like Ghost-Lite stories, you’ll love Limbo…you’ll laugh, cry, and ponder what comes next in the great beyond.

“Wraps its ghost arms around you and seeps into your soul.”—Tamira Thayne, author of The Wrath of Dog, The King’s Tether
