2016 The Crimson Witch Update 1

I am excited to announce a new series I’m working on! There will be one book a year (or so) and each book will be independent. Each story will inspired by a fairytale from Grimm Fairytales or Hans Christian Andersen Fairytales. Each novel will range genres as well, from historic fantasy, sci-fi, horror, to urban fantasy. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

The first in this series will be a take on Red Riding Hood called The Crimson Witch. I’m excited for this novel and hope you will be too!




Merry Christmas! Here is my new free short story download called “Klopf” (pdf at the bottom of the post).  Feel free to share this story with friends and family and review it on Goodreads!

Back cover:

Hans Ritter is the last man alive, at least that is what he believes. Something had come out of the sky and destroyed everything he once loved and cherish. So far he hasn’t found anyone or anything that can help him, that is until he starts to hear knocking in the dead of night.

All his friends and family were gone, his neighbors and those he never got the pleasure of meeting. They were all gone in a blink of an eye. He didn’t know why or how he survived, but figured it had to do with him being a coward. Or a survivor, though sometimes there wasn’t much of a difference.
