Here are some of the stories I’ve written! All of the completed novels and short stories listed below are available for free, no strings attached. I hope that you find something here that you enjoy!
Jenn Lewis sees dead people.
Don’t worry; nobody she knows is secretly dead the whole time (They’re all pretty up-front about that part). That one’s been done.
Rather, the people Jenn encounters are a lot like you and me, though less nervous around sharp implements. They have goals and aspirations; some to make the multiverse a better place, and some to maximize their personal happiness. At the moment, for reasons beyond her reckoning, Jenn is drawing plenty of attention from both camps, not to mention a nontrivial amount of clout.
This sudden change brings up important questions to Jenn’s mind:
- Who do you become when you’re given power you never asked for
- What does it mean to glimpse eternity when you’re still in the middle of your life?
- When is it acceptable to eat dinner foods for breakfast?
Souls Incorporated aims to answer at least one of those questions in a modern-fantasy, dimension-hopping novel. Come along with Jenn on this journey, won’t you?
Content Warnings: A quickly-foiled sexual assault attempt. The would-be victim escapes it before she is in any amount of danger, and only a mild amount of distress.A number of rather grisly (bordering on cartoonish) scenes of violence. Guns are used at one point. There are a few times where needles come into play, as well as a magical drug that causes a character to OD as a result of a malicious poisoning. She recovers thanks to an antidote with no complications. Finally, there’s a tremendous (but not self-destructive) amount of alcohol consumed by the characters, especially towards the beginning.
Short Stories (Starting With the Most Recent)
A short story about being willing to give up everything for the one you love, including yourself. Features demon hunters and love. (You can also get the comic version of this short story if you sign up for my mailing list! Neat!)
Content Warnings: Demon stuff. Transphobia is referenced.
A thrilling tale of requited loathe, treasure hunting, unmistaken identity, and resolved tension. (Eventually.)
Content Warnings: Cussin’. A gun is used. Various characters find themselves in various amounts of peril (think Indiana Jones at the start of Raiders).
A story about finding hope when things seem hopeless. There are vampires, if that’s a selling point.
Content Warnings: Past descriptions of non-violent, non-sexual, but certainly physical and mental abuse, which occurred before the action of our story. A bit of cussin’ used to describe that abuse later on in the story. A character drinks animal blood. A character undresses, but with scarcely more detail than is used in this sentence.
A pair of superheroes are having doubts about their methods. Something’s gotta give, so what’ll it be?
Content Warnings: A bit of peril and some light cussin’. Not much here, so far as I can see!
A story about dealing with loneliness and being an outsider and hope and joy. There’s also magic, because obviously.
Content Warnings: Cussin’ and non-graphic descriptions of past-tense sex.
With the generic fantasy land in peril, a group of adventurers have to save it, though perhaps not the way they planned.
Content Warnings: Mentions of past violence and some threats of violence, along with some cussin’.
A near-future sci-fi short story in three acts about the future of AIs and livestreaming. About following your heart, even when you haven’t taken the time to figure out what your heart wants. About people who wear deli meats on their face. Hopefully one of those piques your interest!
Content Warnings: Cussin’.
Time travel and superpowers are on full display as we find our protagonist running from The Institute with her past self. Her shapeshifting can hide her identity, but for how long?
Content Warnings: Cussin’. Past-tense discussion of child endangerment and imprisonment.
The Hartvane Chronicles
Beneath the waves, perched on a small shelf jutting out from the Abyss below, the town of Shadecoral is home to a colony of Deepdivers, a group of merfolk who have devoted themselves to the Merfolken religion and customs. Two twin sisters, Melodika and Harmonia, have been training for all twenty-five years of their lives to be picked as the Chosen One when a coming crisis arrives. What they don’t know is that they’re already tied up in something larger than even that destiny. When the time comes, how will they face their fates?
