Centaur of the Crime
C.S. Lewis meets CSI when Dayna Chrissie, the LAPD’s best crime scene analyst, finds a golden medallion on a body that’s been unceremoniously dumped at a construction site. At first, she doesn’t think the find’s that unusual. Until that medallion’s enchantment transports her to the magical world of Andeluvia. Dayna’s been summoned out of desperation: Someone’s murdered the king, and if she can’t solve the mystery, human and centaur realms plunge headlong into war! But nobody wants peace when war offers chances for riches and glory. So Dayna ends up with a team of cast-offs: a centaur wizard with father issues, a brash griffin warrior, and the world’s unluckiest magical deer.
Branches: A Novel of Alternate Timelines
2021. The pandemic never happened here. That’s the bad news. Now there are tanks in the streets. The good news is that there’s a way out. Amid the chaos, one person is given the chance to escape their dystopian reality. But what will they find on the other side? Booklife raves that “lovers of alternate histories will find much that fascinates in this bold experiment in timelines and trauma.”
These Times of Abandon
Leighton McDaniel is in her first year at Northern Kentucky University when an EMP detonates above the US. The lights are out, the grid is down, and electronics have failed, including Leighton’s new hearing aids. Unbeknownst to the town of Highland Heights, the weather warning system is down and tornados are forming. As Leighton heads for her boyfriend’s farm, an admirer of hers quietly takes chase. Nothing covers one’s tracks better than shadows and chaos, but some battles turn quickly, leaving one to wonder, who is the wolf, and who becomes the prey?
An Audience with the King
The king says everyone is equal, but Nelia’s life shows the opposite. Once, she’d considered herself blessed; she has the ability to see the true character of others. Envy as green slime, evil as tar. Shame as rubies sparkling bright enough that men would fight over them. But then war took her husband’s kindness. Famine took her beloved grandfather. Plague took her only son. Now an outcast in her hometown, Nelia is at a breaking point. Her gift has brought her pain more often than not and it, like her own life, seems to have no purpose anymore.
