The Necklace: A Short Story


  “Oh, Seth, it’s gorgeous!” Amy Harrison cradled the velvety blue box with both hands, brown eyes wide, mouth open in a wide grin. The red heart caught the light with its many facets. Amy turned the box this way and that, trying to catch her breath. Seth had never given her anything like this […]

Thought I’d share the first chapter of my new paranormal book, Angel Fyre. Enjoy! Chapter One Darcy Fyre wandered amongst the racks at the Goodwill, resentment growing as she shoved aside clothing she knew damn good and well had been worn by someone else.

Being a biology and anatomy professor definitely gives me lots of fodder for stories! 🙂 Darkness. Heaviness in the limbs. Muffled voices. “He’s coming to.” I don’t know that voice. Jack Nelson fought […]

Free Short Stories: To Read or Not to Read


A fellow author posted on Facebook about the likelihood of making money on short stories or novellas if you are a new and budding author. Most readers I know won’t pay large amounts of money for short stories or novellas, especially since they can get full length novels fairly cheap, if not free. I suggested […]

Resigned Fate Update


WOOHOO! Sent the proofread manuscript to Booktrope! It’s won’t be long now before Resigned Fate, the final book in the Portals of Destiny series, will be making its debut.
