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.

Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due (serial novella)

Genre: YA mystery
Format: Available on Wattpad

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.

This is a completed YA serial mystery, with new episodes posted every Wednesday. Individual chapters can be found on the blog by searching “dru faust part ___”. The entire story is available on Wattpad.
