Wrap-up of Recent Events + Sales

Last Thursday Event at Hyde Brothers

There was a great turnout at the Last Thursday event at Hyde Brothers in October, where I read two stories from my collection Sorcery & Widgets, along with two local poets reading their work. I appreciate Hyde Brothers putting together the event and always supporting local authors!

Hoosier Indie Authors Book Fair

I had a great time at the Hoosier Indie Authors Book Fair at the Honeywell Center in Wabash, Indiana, where I had a table with my book, art items, and a selection of crochet quotable critters. I enjoyed chatting with everyone who came by the table and seeing the variety of books and authors in attendance. It was a very nice event, and I look forward to many more!

Trying to Fly – Fantasy Novelette

Chiara’s parents were taken by the Guardians when she was a child, and she never felt like she belonged on her aunt and uncle’s farm.

Or, that was her plan until a stranger fell from the sky and disrupted all of their lives.

On the run from the citymen, intergalactic spy Greg Meredith has one hope of figuring out who is responsible for blowing his cover.

The sea does not relinquish treasures. The mender understands and has no intention of saving the water-logged woman until he notices the islands on her arm. She is a Guardian. Guardians protect the islands. Guardians call dragons from the sky.

A Prophecy and the People – Fantasy Short Story

When the Bard’s tale is interrupted by soldiers from the fire king’s army, she must try to escape the town without letting her unpredictable magic destroy it.
