The crabbers come early to check their traps. Every Tuesday just before dawn. Like clockwork. There’s no need for a blaring horn to disturb the peace because there isn’t another vessel for miles.    Just Cressida alone on the beach.    The sky crackles and the sea hums. The world goes quiet, just for a moment, like it’s afraid to draw even a single breath. The stillness is electrifying. But something isn’t right.    Something is out of place...    A sound. Out of place in the frozen dawn. Bustling and squabbling. Feathers beating against the air and snapping against rough brick. Sharp claws scraping stone like flint. Seagulls line up along the rockface and down the angled stilts on either side of the overhang that forms a cave beneath the old Mermaid Asylum.    They don’t move, not even to blink. Still as gargoyles guarding some mythical treasure. Cressida's treasure.    And they’re beckoning her inside…

The ADDICTION starts here!

It's just a normal Tuesday morning in the sleepy fishing town of Silverside, Oregon. The crabbers come early to check their traps. Every Tuesday just before dawn. Like clockwork. There’s no need for a blaring horn to disturb the peace because there isn’t another vessel for miles.

Just Cressida alone on the beach.

The sky crackles and the sea hums. The world goes quiet, just for a moment, like it’s afraid to draw even a single breath. The stillness is electrifying. But something isn’t right.

Something is out of place...

A sound. Out of place in the frozen dawn. Bustling and squabbling. Feathers beating against the air and snapping against rough brick. Sharp claws scraping stone like flint. Seagulls line up along the rockface and down the angled stilts on either side of the overhang that forms a cave beneath the old Mermaid Asylum.

They don’t move, not even to blink. Still as gargoyles guarding some mythical treasure. Cressida's treasure.

And they’re beckoning her inside…

Vice    Available on Amazon   We all like what we like. We need what we need. And most of us can’t tell the difference…   They say everyone has a vice.

But the most addictive vice of all is something more sinister and more intoxicating altogether.     Vice  is chilling short story about obsession, revenge, and good old fashioned wickedness. It's  You  meets  Gone Girl,  and it will leave you questioning what you love, what you hate, and what you can’t live without.

Come Away With Me    Available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited!   In the vein of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, Come Away With Me is an eerie tale of eternal damnation, the absence of free will, and the all-consuming power of Norah Jones.     The room is dark.    Not the kind of dark which is simply an absence of light, but the kind of dark which has a physical presence. It’s more alive than I am, wrapping its cold arms around me and holding me captive. Formless and still, not even my breath moves in the room. The only visible light seeps under a door at the far end of the room.    Silent at first, my feet touch the ground for the first time as I approach the sliver of gold. Rough soles scrape against the hard surface and the impact of each step travels up my body, waking it as if from a deep sleep. Only once I reach the door does my hand materialize in the dark. Shimmery and ethereal like a mirage. With a push the door swings wide and the fierce light blinds me again…
