Under Construction

Welcome to My Office

Current works in progress:

Sequels, and Other Bad Ideas picks up 3 years after the events of the last book. Sugar, Michael, George and their gregarious butler are on the search for a wedding gift for Nancy and Henry, but soon it becomes a rescue mission when they find out Nancy has been abducted by a new mysterious group called the Sheet.

Will they band together in time to rescue Nancy before her wedding?

If they do, will they remember to get a gift for the wedding?

Will George have his body taken over by a ghost with nefarious plans of his own?

Very probably


Simultaneously (although frankly, this has taken a back-burner to Sequels, and Other Bad Ideas because it’s not as fun to write,) I’m also working on an untitled series of novels exploring what the world, or at least the United States, would be like if the religious right took full control of the country.

First, the wall was built to keep them out, then it was expanded to all corners to keep us in. At age eighteen every citizen must be tested in accordance with the clergy’s ruling that all unclean must be marked.

These tests decide everything about the rest of your life, from what kind of job you’re allowed to have, to where you’re allowed to live. Your mark, a line on your neck, lets everyone know immediately what your sin was.

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride marked as numerals on your neck, allowing the “clean” to judge you without having to know anything else about you.

On her way to her trial, Avery Lawson’s caravan was ambushed by the resistance. It’s not her fault she wasn’t able to attend the trials, but that doesn’t matter to the law. Now she’s a criminal to be hunted down just like those that captured her.

As yet untitled
