New Release | Aliens Ate my Homework

Greetings, All!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of the second novel in the Ubergirl series – Aliens Ate my Homework! Available now on Kindle. (Paperback should be live in a day or so).


Kelly Donovan wants to save the Earth from aliens, but her plan has a serious snag—she needs to do it before bedtime.

It’s been a few weeks since the Nolmek scattered giant crystals around the world that unintentionally gave some people super powers. They also nearly eliminated war and shared technology to solve famine, drought, and pollution, so pretty much everyone loves them. Alas, the aliens didn’t visit Earth purely out of kindness.

They needed a primitive species to enslave.

Kelly discovers they’re speeding up their plans, already abducting people from the super-prison right out from under the cops’ noses, the same prison her mad-scientist father is stuck in. She’s desperate to protect him, but unfortunately, no one is willing to believe the Nolmek could be bad guys. Worse, they know she’s on to them.

If she can’t find proof of the aliens’ plan, stop the invasion, and be in bed before nine, she faces worse than the enslavement of humanity—she’ll be grounded.


Happy reading!

New Release | Vampire Innocent 8

Book 8 is now live on Kindle!

Sarah Wright has gone through a lifetime of mess in a mere five months, but her most difficult challenge yet is making it through Thanksgiving without spilling blood.

It isn’t only her extended family tempting her to sprout claws. A vampire hunter has arrived in Seattle, his sights set on Professor Heath. Worse, the hunter seems like a relatively nice guy. Dedicating one’s entire life to destroying undead sounds like a perfectly reasonable response to witnessing a vampire kill your parents, right?

She doesn’t believe her mild professor used to be a bloodthirsty mass-murderer, nor does she want to straight-up kill a living man for merely existing. Her indecision and silence backfires. One of the local vampire elders, still fuming over Sarah’s decision to remain with her mortal family, seizes the chance to back her into a political corner:

If Sarah doesn’t kill the hunter, she’ll bear the responsibility for anyone he destroys.

Updates – 9/23/19

Greetings, All!

Update time. The editor is done with Vampire Innocent 8, so I’m back into it. Things are going smoothly so I anticipate this one releasing before the end of the week. Sarah’s got her hands full dealing with two major issues… there’s a vampire hunter in Seattle – and she needs to survive Thanksgiving dinner with her extended family.

Book Fair – Holy crap it’s almost October already. The Collingswood Book Festival is two weeks out (10/5/19). Anyone close enough to drive to South Jersey should check this out: https://www.collingswoodbookfestival.com/ I’ll be there in spot 34.

Hardcover: Of Myth and Shadow is now available in hardcover! I know it looks a bit steep price wise, but it’s as low as I could put it without being charged money when stores buy it. Signed copies direct from me will be cheaper than retail (once I have them on hand… shipping takes a while).

Ubergirl book 2 (Aliens Ate my Homework) should be out soon as well. At the moment, it’s only waiting on the cover art.

And lastly, the outline for the fourth book in the Evergreen series is taking shape. I don’t have an exact time frame for this yet, but its release shouldn’t be too far in the future.

Happy reading!
