Awkward.

Hi! I’m Deidre. (I pronounce it DAY-druh, because I know you’re probably wondering.) I’ve got some cool stuff going on these days, so thanks for coming to check me out!

Hey, are you into weird fiction? Then you might like this! UK author Tim Mendees performed a reading of my horror short “The White Mannequins Game,” (a Mannison Minibook by Mannison Press). Watch it here!


NOW! What brings you here today? I figure it’s likely one of three things…

  • If you’re here about my BOOKS and writings, then you’re in the right place! I’ve got all sort of stuff about my children’s picture book series (The Heaven Zoo) and chapter book series (We’re All Just People)… including some FREE printable coloring sheets for the kiddos. Then over on the “Other Works” page you can learn more about my short story publications for adults. (Er, not adult adult, just like…grownups.) I also have a blog with some short writings and bookish stuff.
  • If you’re here because you heard about my indie publishing company, then you’re looking for MANNISON PRESS. Awesome stuff going on over there, check it out 🙂
  • And if you’re here looking for info on my side hustle — services for indie authors — then you want MANNISON DESIGN, a services division at Mannison Press.

Thanks for dropping by! Here’s a quick overview of some of my recent doings:
