Thank you for your patience with my delayed release.
The tragic events of last week deserved our attention and respect.
After taking some much needed down time (and staving off a lengthy bout with COVID), I am back in the saddle and things are happening! I anticipate several new releases over the next few months, beginning with this disturbing science fiction horror novella called TERMINAL FAULTS.
Science Fiction/Horror (180 pages)
Available in 5×8 paperback and ebook formats.
How complex our faults.
Two young couples plot and scheme their way through life, unmoved by the havoc and heartache they inflict. A mother and daughter indulge in their most gluttonous desires, indifferent to the suffering of others. A serial killer revels in the presentation of the ultimate victim and will stop at nothing to complete a macabre collection. And two disillusioned AIs are launched into a devastating feud, oblivious to their own malfunctions and succumbing to ruinous obsession.
How complex the fallout.
Now, wandering aimlessly through a mysterious realm, these nine condemned souls unknowingly interact with one another, woven together into a complex tapestry of woe. They stalk without purpose, hunt without direction, seek without vision. Heads down and locked in their own vicious cycles, their misguided momentum only serves to fuel the means of their destruction.
How complex these Obsidian Rooms.
