Books

A list of my books (novels, novellas, collections, or anthologies in which I have a story) that are either published or are scheduled for publication.

Brutal Light

Brutal LightAll Kagami Takeda wants is to be left alone, so that no one else can be destroyed by the madness she keeps at bay. Her connection to the Radiance–a merciless and godlike sea of light–has driven her family insane and given her lover strange abilities and terrible visions. But the occult forces that covet her access to the Radiance are relentless in their pursuit. Worse, the Radiance itself has created an enemy who can kill her–a fate that would unleash its brutal light on a defenseless city…

Brutal Light is a supernatural dark fantasy novel set in modern day Detroit, and was my first published novel. Originally published in December 2011, it was brought back into print in August 2017, exclusively from Amazon.com. Further updates, buying information, excerpts, guest blog/interview links, and reviews can be found on my Brutal Light page.

The CAM Charity Anthology Horror and Science Fiction 1All of the CAM Charity Anthologies are made up of donated short fiction stories.

Fairly Wicked Tales (ed. Stacey Turner)

Fairly Wicked TalesOnce upon a scream… Think you know the real story behind those fables and fairy tales you read as a child? Stories are written from the viewpoint of the heroes, but the lines between hero and villain, good and evil, are often blurred. We’ve gathered twenty three tales that turn those stories you think you know on their heads by letting the villains have their say. What if Snow White wasn’t as pure as the newly driven snow? What if Red Riding Hood was far more dangerous than the Big Bad Wolf? What if Rapunzel was hell bent on revenge? Forget Disney, forget the Brothers Grimm, say hello to Fairly Wicked Tales—re-imaginings of both fairy tales and fables. Fairly Wicked Tales, a book for adults who harbor the wicked child within.

Fairly Wicked Tales, edited by Stacey Turner, is an anthology of dark fantasy and horror published August 6th, 2014, from Angelic Knight Press (reissued April 21st, 2015, by Ragnarok Publications), and includes my short story “Sweetheart, the Dream is Not Ended”. Further updates, buying information, excerpts, guest blog/interview links, and reviews can be found on my Fairly Wicked Tales page.
