Coming Fall 2017:
THE FERRYMEN, Evie Cappelli book 2
Genre: YA urban fantasy
Format: Paperback & ebook
Nearly a year after her failed suicide attempt, Evie Cappelli is still seeing ghosts.
That’s okay, though. It’s landed her a high paying—but not glamorous—job in supernatural law enforcement with the Montreal Night Patrol, and Micha (the ghost of her fiancée in a former life) as well as her living, breathing friends are helping her get her mental health back on track. She’s even got temporary protection from the cult of Athena, who want her dead.
But when Micha suddenly becomes unstable, Evie will have to cross international borders and steal 2 priceless artifacts if she wants to keep him on this plane. That might be tricking when the Chicago Night Shift gets involved. She’ll need approval from Ian Mulhaney to cast such a powerful, dangerous spell, but with a serial killer, zombies, and a questionable group of psychics and necromancers roaming Chicago, Evie and Micha are at the bottom of his list of problems.
Time is running out, and Hekate’s protection is wearing off fast. Can Evie keep Micha—and herself—together long enough?
THE NIGHT WARS COLLECTION, with co-author Missouri Dalton
Genre: adult fantasy
Format: Paperback & ebook
A collection of 13 short stories tracing the Night Shift from its earliest days to the present. Be prepared for romance, mystery, and action! Now with bonus novelette, In Defense of Mushrooms.
The Spider’s Web
After being released from a Toronto psych ward, Evie decides her life needs a drastic change. Moving 500 kilometers east to stay with her aunt in Montreal, however, is not turning out as expected. Though she loves the city, she can’t outrun the problems that drove her to the edge in the first place.
Recovery might be a little easier if not for Micha. Handsome, kind, always willing to help Evie or cheer her on–and completely invisible to everyone else. He seems to think he’s some kind of guardian angel, and she might need one now that things have gone from bad to just plain weird.
It started with the spiders. Then the owls started following her. Ghosts, goddesses, and secret societies are just the icing on the cake. She’s going to need help from some very powerful friends if she wants to make it to her next birthday, but when one of those friends is the goddess of the underworld, her guardian angel might have to start working overtime.

Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due
Genre: Mystery, historical, YA
Format: currently available as a free read here on the blog or on my Tumblr. More formats will be available once the entire story is up (late 2017).
In 1922, seventeen-year-old Dru Faust is more concerned with volunteer work and assisting her chemist father in his laboratory than the burgeoning world of jazz and speakeasies.
When one of her best friends is poisoned after a night of dancing, though, Dru takes it upon herself to find the culprit. The police are overstretched and quite frankly, don’t seem interested in shutting down the local bootleggers. As more and more people fall ill, Dru races to find the source of the tainted liquor before it does irrevocable harm.
The Witching Hour
Genre: romance (m/m), historical
Format: E-book only. Only $.99 to buy, or free if you have Kindle Unlimited!
Dr. Jacob Thompson is a respectable member of his Puritan community, if a little odd. He’s kept to himself since the last member of his family died.
But his sister, Sarah, still lingers, bearing a warning from beyond the grave: if he doesn’t complete the yearly protection ritual, Maple Valley will fall into the same chaos that tore through Salem Village just months earlier.
He may not get the chance, however, when Marcus Swan, an inquisitor fresh from the trials at Salem, passes through the village. Suddenly, the Elders are looking on Jacob’s eccentricities with suspicion.
But there’s more to Inquisitor Swan than meets the eye. Jacob has been dreaming about him for months. Still, the question remains–is Marcus Swan his doom, or something else altogether?
First published in 2012, now newly revised and re-released!
Birds of a Feather (short story)
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Formats: Read online for free on Goodreads.
Previously published by Torquere Press, and now available for free!
Eric has always been wary when it comes to intimate relationships. The fact that he turns into a flamingo when the full moon is out really doesn’t make it easy to find a boyfriend–or to keep one. Even after ten months with Dan, he still hasn’t gotten up the nerve to share his secret.
But Dan has been offered a new job on the other side of the country, and Florida native Eric is having trouble explaining why moving to the mountains would be a bad idea. He’ll have to shake a tailfeather if he wants to convince Dan to stay before it’s too late.
Things get even more complicated when a new Were shows up in town. Eric might be moving north, whether he likes it or not, but it may not be in the way he thought
