Collected Stories of 2009

Collected Stories of 2009My first short story annual collection is available now.

It was 2009. That was the year everything changed for me. Major life changes, career changes, and seismic shifts in the publishing landscape. This was the year when I “got serious” about my writing – not that I hadn’t been studying and learning for many years before, but this was the turning point.

This collection pulls together the stories published or written in 2009, including:

“The Copyleft Heart” feeling the effects of copyright on love…

“Commuter” capturing a cyclist’s fear…

“So Little Time” exploring loved realized too late…

“Space Monkeys” connecting a father and son…

“Dreamstone” bringing nightmares to life…

“The Good Samaritan” giving an urban legend new turn…

“Eetees” crashing aliens into a small town…

“This Book is Haunted” touching on the enduring love of stories…

“Witness to Dust” exploring new shape-shifters…

“Quantum Uncertainty” uncovering the consequences of new technology…

Ten stories, and a sample from Dark Matters, the first book in my Moreau Society series, for your enjoyment.


Waking Dead Things

Waking Dead Things


The first novel in the Dead Things series, Waking Dead Things, is now available. Previously published as written by “Tennessee Hicks”, I’m excited to get this new edition out, leading up to the release of the next two books in the weeks ahead.

Ravyn Washington.

Ordinary high school teen worried about getting her driver’s license, dates and passing classes. Oh, and dead things.

Sometimes dead things wake up. It happened to her Nana, branded witch and necromancer by the Inquisition. Now Inquisitor Lockwood shows up in town, checking if Ravyn inherited the curse.

And dead things wake up. If Lockwood finds out, Ravyn could burn.

New story relaunch: This Book is Haunted

This Book is HauntedAnother story live today, This Book is Haunted, previously published as written by “R.M. Haag”, now available at Glittering Throng Press.

Librarian Scott Taylor enjoys the quiet at the end of the day. Picking up the books, straightening up, spending a few minutes to get the library ready for the next day.

Books have a way of capturing memories and feelings. And tonight Scott discovers that a connection to a book lasts.
