How can dark fiction and children’s fiction coexist in the same brain? Easy: for me, reading and writing fiction is all about processing the world and instilling a little bit of hope. Elements from both genres cross over, so that both kids and adults can process the scary things they observe and experience — but also find clues for how not to let it get them down.
Fiction for Adults
My short stories and novellas are published both traditionally and independently:
Sodom & Gomorrah on a Saturday Night
What if human trafficking and other crimes were legalized — and used by an entirely privatized government to “help” citizens pay off debt?
The Kings of Babylon
The sequel to Sodom & Gomorrah. What happens when the powerful exploit both personal and social weaknesses for their own gain?
The Queen of Sheba
The third in the Sodom & Gomorrah series.
Bloodied Hearts & Broken Starts
Messed-up romances and messed-up childhoods come together in a collection of the first stories I saw professionally published, between 2006-2008.
Fiction for Children
The Living Wild Side by Side series of children’s books is a resource for teachers, wildlife rehabilitators, homeschoolers, and anyone else with a desire to teach children about wildlife and humane coexistence between people and wild animals.
