Mara is a Japanese-American girl with a history of personal tragedy. Though she still cuts to quell the pain, she thought she had left the worst behind her. But her boyfriend’s sudden death and a visit to one of the most haunted places in Washington State send her into a spiral of madness that lands her in a psychiatric ward.

Already suffering from dreams of a strange, ghost-infested house in the woods, Mara begins to question the very existence of reality. She is forced to confront the truth of her older sister’s brutal murder and, unable to distinguish between nightmare and waking any longer, the reason the ghosts have chosen her as their conduit.

    We believe in ghosts. Do you? Expecting the usual? Please don’t. You won’t find haunted houses, spirit infested graveyards, demonic poltergeists, or possessed objects in these pages. It’s been said that there are no haunted places, only haunted people. That’s who you’ll find here, the haunted ones. A maintenance technician in remote Alaska, an English thief, a young couple on a road trip across America, an astronaut on a one way ride to Jupiter, an Irish gravedigger, and dozens more. All victims of an otherworldly infection, all tormented by a plague of shadows. Do you believe in ghosts? You will.
    Available at Amazon.

    A Brief Update

    If you read horror, you’re probably aware of DarkFuse’s closing by now. This means that Conduits is no longer available except as an audiobook. I’ll be trying to find a new home for the ebook (and possibly print) version, but in the meantime, give it a listen–Margy Stein is a fantastic narrator!

    Prison Made of Mirrors is now available as an audiobook as well. Details are here. I’m still working on the Firebird audiobook; life got in the way this summer, but I promise it’s coming soon.

    I have a couple of new projects in the works–one for cosmic horror fans and one for paranormal romance lovers–so stay tuned over the next couple of months!

    Prison Made of Mirrors Release Day!

    Aithne is a warrior kidnapped from her homeland during a Viking invasion and forced to marry her captor. Shortly before the raid that claims his life, she becomes pregnant with a child whom she believes cursed. Spurred by the dark sorcery she learns from relics her late husband’s mother left behind—including a magic mirror—Aithne descends into a madness that threatens not only her child’s life but also the lives of everyone around her.

    Exiled by her mother, Brenna is taken in by a clan of dwarves who treat her like their own. They soon learn that no one is immune to Aithne’s lunacy—not even the prince to whom Brenna was once betrothed. Brenna must face and conquer death itself if she is to save the land that rightfully belongs to her, and to break her mother’s terrible spell on the man she loves.
