Short Stories

short_storiesWhispering Through the Veil — A fantasy short story about the love a father for a son despite being separated from one another through the power of the fae.

UPDATE 2014-11-20: I just discovered that my story was bundled with some others in a special print edition by Static Movement. You can find it here on Lulu.

UPDATE 2015-10-06: Another new discovery. The web site (Static Movement) that once hosted this story seems to have gone under some massive changes, and nothing is available there anymore. I’ve revised the story in hopes of landing it in a new home, but for how, the only option to obtain the story is via Lulu.

Carnival of the Damned

Carnival of the Damned

Carnival of the Damned — Available at Amazon in print and ebook. My story is Children of the Carnival and revolves around a team of Hunters tracking down people afflicted with C.L.O.W.N.S. that turn them into grotesque killing and flesh-eating creatures. The Hunters are trying to save a little girl from an abandoned traveling circus, and twisted things creep out of the night and into their lives.
