It's Camp NaNoWriMo time. From April 1st through April 30th this story will be coming together 1,667 words a day at a time. Stay tuned for weekly blog entries and be sure to follow my socials for word count updates!
When his parents go missing, Ethan Beckett must turn to the one person he most definitely does not want to owe anything to - Erik, the Reaper assigned to help Ethan's parents during their Necromancy assignments.
Erik's fascination with Ethan goes beyond simply wanting to reap his soul. His need for companionship and his overwhelming loneliness tend to push him over the line between obsession and schoolboy crush.
Their forced partnership will lead them down a path neither of them is prepared for.
He Can Take a Life. Can He Save One?
"Poison Devils" is a short novel I started in early 2019 as a script for a screenwriting course and then adapted during NanoWriMo in November of the same year. Unlike most NaNo projects this one has been heavily edited (by me) over the past year and has had one read through by someone other than me just before the release date. Although we have done our best to catch all errors, we've got a small team here and we might have missed one or two.
After a series of cataclysmic events decimates several US states, a small group of government officials begin to rebuild society in the city formerly known as Downtown Los Angeles.
Sixteen-year-old Xander Slater finds himself in the middle of an existential crisis when his own series of events forces him to seek what's hiding under the surface in order to decide between what is right and what is wrong and finds that his parents may not be who he thought they were.
Obedience is Mandatory.
From 2020: This has been quite a journey. For the last several months I have been tweaking and completely overhauling Book 1 in the Hell on Earth series as my thesis project for the Masters of Creative Writing program at National University. There are still many aspects of the story intact, but much of it has changed.
Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
I have left the original version of Paint it Black on the site if you are interested in seeing where it came from and how it changed.
Tyler Jones thought he left his past behind him, but when a global pandemic re-invigorates Lucifer's plan to resurface on the mortal plane, Tyler must come to terms with a harsh truth: you can run away from your demons but eventually they will catch up with you.
Chloe Kostopolous thought she was following the right path, but after a strange meeting with one of Lucifer's most trusted demons, she finds herself confronted by a life-changing choice.
The Bringer of Light Has Gone Dark.
