Welcome to my web site. Glad you could make it.
I write fantasy, mystery, science fiction, and horror, as well as the occasional essay and poem.
Five years have passed. The worlds above and below have recovered and changed.
The fairies from the Clockwork Kingdom return every year, asking for Dale’s help in vain. This year, Cornelius, the head of the fairies, brings dread news: Kostya has returned.
The Maker has taught herself what she could about magic, but no teacher has ever arrived. Finally, a herald manages to break through the spells surrounding the town to warn Nora that something, perhaps a monster, has been keeping them at bay. And it is stalking her for her power, and her life.
Can Nora get away before the monster enthralls her? What price will Dale pay to keep his sister free? And who is the monster?
My next novel is called Poisoned Pearls. It’s an urban fantasy mystery, set in Minneapolis.
Working at a sex & toy shop like Chinaman Joe’s Good Luck Parlor keeps Cassie in smokes and off the streets. It isn’t glamorous. But it’s a life.
Then again, Cassie is just normal, not one of the blessed. No paranormal abilities, no telepathy, no pre-cognition. Normal.
But when someone kills Cassie’s best friend in the alley behind the store, the police start looking at her. Hard. Particularly when the Post-Cog on the case swears she’s involved, somehow.
Then someone strangles a prostitute right there in the store.
Cassie knows the cops are wrong about everything. She didn’t do it, and the deaths aren’t about drugs.
But to prove them wrong Cassie has to stop gods she didn’t know were real and prevent Ragnarok.
Her life will never be the same.
