In Progress

Things I’m writing, considering, plotting, trying out, playing with, or working on somehow.

Snora and the Cruel Complications

Snora wakes up alone in a dark hospital. Chased by evil shadows and filled with terrible questions, she must discover secrets deep in her past, which is weird because she woke up for the first time about a minute ago. Where is her mommy? Why are kids in the hopsital being attacked by the ills? Will she ever discover who she even is and will it be cool? Hopefully, but the story won’t move forward until you help Snora rocket towards the ending!

Upcoming adventures in the Snora Series:

Tabby Cadabra and the Deviant Septum
LaughyDaffy and the Honkable Schnoz
JDawgtor and the Missing Hand
BatBat and the Snoozing Sniffer

Oh, the IndigniTREE!

There is only one thing a tree doesn’t want to be when it grows up…toilet paper. Now the all-knowing city council plans to do just that, destroy more forest to produce the dwindling resource without the tree’s consent.The some guy named Hugh Barker shows up weilding an axe, and the trees have had enough. They break a centuries-old code to put this pipsqueak in his place, only, Hugh isn’t who they thought. He’s just a guy who loves Betsy (his guitar) and wound up in the wrong forest at the wrong time. He must navigate a bewildering future and save the trees from losing theirs, all before the chainsaws come calling.

Bedtime Stories for Parents: Children of the Stair

Tales of sardonic humor will resonate with lovers of Poe or Lovecraft. Children are of course the villains of this universe, and are out for blood, or at least to make sure you never sleep soundly again. For a parent with a day job, what’s the difference?

Vigil Annie

A classic story of a street-wise girl crossed by the wrong people. She tries to find peace in religion and violence, and learns that there are merits and problems to both.

The Patron Saint

A zombie ravaged world is left with few survivors. A scientist goes to extreme lengths to try to save the lost cause of humanity after discovering that the answer to reversing the plague is hidden in one of the brains now roaming the countryside. He must find the woman he loves to save her and humankind before time and sickness end his life. Even after he’s gone, he has a plan to use technology to continue his research with AI and his memories. A trippy tale filled with zombies, science, technology, ethics, and what it means to love.

Series: The Crzytalis Paragon (Earthsoul Saga)

Deep beneath the surface of the earth hums the God Machine with slow rhythm. No one living on earth has any idea the awful things it is capable of or where it came from. Polly learns the machine’s undoing will release the most evil that has walked any planet. She is the Eldest, but has no idea what that means. She alone can stop the fallout and keep the universe on course, if she survives.
