Wyrmwind Tales: Book 1
For as long as anyone can remember the islanders of Brodthrop Atoll have lived in peace. The still airs keep the sailors away and the dance of the whalepike calms the seas.
When Phehl's turn came to be pike keeper, she looked forward to long days of watching the ocean for whale spouts and tending the small creatures that inhabit the lagoon.
But, when a frenzied shark interrupts the ceremony and a strange girl washes up on Whalegrave Beach, the winds begin shifting and more strangers are quick to arrive.
Things turn dangerous and Phehl must choose between disappointing her people and protecting her newfound friend.

Children of Atlas
Atlas Cycle Book 1
In the dome cities of the failed space colony Atlas, mankind has finally clawed its way out of a second dark ages.
Julian Reeves was born in the lawless second ring and left it behind for the budding city state of New-Lexington. Now he's the lead reporter for the station's first ever newspaper, printed on an old, movable-type printing press.
When Julian is framed for murder and flees the city with the very man responsible, he will have to put aside his newfound humanity and take up the old ways to survive.
Atlas Cycle Book 2
The founding of the Arena Under the Hill marked the end of open warfare between the clans of Tokyo2. With peace came prosperity, and the city has grown into the largest metropolis on the space station Atlas.
Betrix Farmer gave up the Arena when she left for New Lexington. Now an unexpected debt, to an old enemy, will drive her back into the ring. The stakes are high, but success would mean a fresh start for this former champion and the boy in her care.
Betrix is not the only one returning to the dome. The reporter Kate roams the city stirring up trouble, and the twin brothers have settled on the outskirts, bringing troubles of their own. The man everyone's hunting, Julian Reeves, is no longer bound for Tokyo2, but the decision, may not be his to make.
On a failed expedition to the heart of an ancient space station, Edwina wakes in a land of fierce warriors and drifting sands, in a mechanical body that is not her own.
With no memory of why, or how many bodies have come before this, one thing is clear: she’s trapped and time is running out.
An ancient citadel looms over the barren land and a cruel sultan rules the scattered people. Edwina finds a new body, one real enough to feel human, and strong enough to challenge the sultan. But the android body comes with human weaknesses, and like the others it has a mind of its own.
When her allies begin to quarrel, Edwina must find a way to make empathy and hatred work together. To do that, she may just have to listen to what the android is telling her.
This is Station Atlas, where the fall of humanity is long forgotten, where history becomes fantasy, science becomes magic, and basic survival is high adventure in a strange, fragile world.
Did you know I also write poetry?
Long before I started publishing fiction. Pennsylvania Music Poems is some of my favorite. It came out a while back. I'm one or two poems shy of pubihsing the sequel. I don't hurry them. It's been seven or eight years since I published this. At this rate, the next one (Ghost Water Poems) will be out in a year or two.
