Many moons ago I was a scientist in a neuroscience lab where I got to play with brains and illegal drugs.

Now, I’m an award-winning indie author who turns wickedly strong tea into fantastical fiction (so, basically I’m still playing with brains and drugs).

My work runs the gamut from quirky & paranormal stories in which I let my humorous side out and about, to historical fantasy novels in which the gods, heroes, and myths of Ancient Greece come to life as you’ve never seen them before, to an eerie tale now and then!

If you’re curious to try my work, but aren’t quite ready to gamble your hard-earned money on me, keep scrolling to discover where you can get a couple free series starters, as well as an exclusive, grin-inducing short story.

But first, let me tell you what I’m all giddy about lately….

Fan Favorite!!

The Cassie Black Trilogy

Working at a funeral home can be mundane. Until you start accidentally bringing the dead back to life.

The Cassie Black Trilogy is a fish-out-of-water tale that takes you from the streets of Portland to the Tower of London. It’s got magic, mystery, dapper dead guys, piles of pastries and an evil wizard…because there’s always an evil wizard, isn’t there?

If you like contemporary fantasy that blends wry humor, paranormal mystery, and quirky characters such as Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series, you’ll find it hard to pry yourself away from the Cassie Black Trilogy.

The Undead Mr. Tenpenny

The Uncanny Raven Winston

The Untangled Cassie Black

You can also find these titles and more on my Payhip Bookstore.
