In Florida, they walk right into an elaborate plan to steal Orson. A mysterious wizard named Yareth is behind the plot, and he may also know where Sheila is.

After their recent adventures in Florida, Gabriel, Sheila, and Orson are due for a vacation. But their dreams of beaches are interrupted by an urgent cry for help.

Sheila’s aunt, the witch who first taught her magic, has hidden herself away in snowy Maine. Now she’s being targeted by a radical environmental group that’s demanding her help… or else. They’ve mastered an ancient native magic and are going to use it to destroy anyone who gets in their way. And they have a nasty habit of controlling animals… including Orson.

It will take all of Sheila’s magic and Gabriel’s skills to stop them, and it might tear them apart before they’re through. But if they fail, it could be the darkest night of all.

BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS
French Press (May 2018)

Six billion identical clones make up the entire population of Earth, and William 790-6 (57th Iteration) is exactly like everybody else. In his one year of life he will toil in suburban mediocrity and spend as much cash as possible in order to please his corporate masters. When 790's first birthday (and scheduled execution) finally rolls around, a freak accident spares his life.

Living past his expiration date changes 790 profoundly. Unlike other clones he becomes capable of questioning the futility of his own existence. Seeking answers in the wilderness, he discovers a windmill with some very strange occupants, including a freakish, dinosaur-like monstrosity. Which is especially strange since every animal on earth is supposed to be extinct...

Dark, haunting, and blisteringly satirical, BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS is the story of one "man's" attempt to finally become an individual in a world of copies.

To save the remnants of humanity (and himself), Captain Martigan must defeat all three of his ruthless new foes and brave the gruesome horrors of...THE GHOUL ARCHIPELAGO.

After falling further into the rabbit hole, Rikki lands at the feet of an ancient and powerful evil determined to finish what it started years before.

THREE INCIDENTS AT FOSTER MANOR
Forest City Pulp (January 2019)

Amy Burnett has been buried in her work as a security expert. She likes it that way—her dark past can’t invade her thoughts as long as she stays holed up in her office. So why the heck has she ended up at a gothic mansion’s doorstep in the middle of the night?

It’s because Craig Foster summoned her there. Amy’s company built the sealed chamber in his basement, for any worrisome worst-case scenario, but now the safe room has presented a scenario of its own: Craig’s daughter is trapped inside.

It should be a quick fix. After all, what’s the worst thing that can happen when a stranger arrives at a remote mansion on a stormy night? An impossible mystery? A haunting? A visit from the lurking strangers in the woods? Surely not all three—that would require extraordinarily bad luck.

Unfortunately, Amy’s been short on luck lately

STARS AND OTHER MONSTERS
Forest City Pulp (June 2014)


When Stan meets Dalla, his unscrupulous profession comes back to bite him. If he doesn’t deliver the vampire’s movie star obsession on a platter, he’ll find himself on the menu instead. Forced on a road trip to Hollywood with a monster, Stan knows his days are numbered.

He’ll need to buy time. Sure, Dalla is a literal monster, but if she only got to know the real Stan, maybe she’d find him charming enough to let him live. Maybe? Thing is, when going up against a star who doesn’t want to be found, in a world where being rich is more powerful than being undead, there won’t be time for chit-chat. 

With a quirky chance meeting, opposites forced together, and otherworldly obstacles on a road trip to love, this could’ve been a romantic comedy.

This is not a romantic comedy. This is going to hurt, and it’s going to get bloody. Better buckle in.
