I began publishing short stories and novelettes in 2017, mostly in various Anthologies. Since then, Tannhauser Press has seen fit to re-publish most of them as ebooks, as well as deluxe print editions with extras such as worldbuilding details, extra vignettes, etc. I have also begun publishing novels, as well. Most of my stories are set in various loosely connected series.
My first novel was published in 2021, with more on the way.
|Clash By Night: It’s 2114 and a traveling exhibition of priceless artwork has gone missing in war-ravaged Brazil. Emily Dunkirk and her band of mercenaries and art historians have a bold plan to rescue the works.

I promote my novelettes as Quick Reads, for people who want to read a good story, but don’t have a lot of time. They’re published as ebooks, but also have a print edition with extras that aren’t in the ebooks. I sell a lot of these print editions at conventions, but they’re also available from Amazon. Incidentally, “The Jakarta Breach” is currently only available to Newsletter subscribers.
|The Jakarta Breach: In a future where technology is out of control, it takes a special kind of agent to protect the world from Zero Day terrorist threats.
For Newsletter subscribers.
