a Kind of Death

A princess who makes dangerous bargains with the afterlife. A man desperate to save his wife, no matter the cost. An uber driver for the undead.

Death, whether real or metaphorical, comes for us all. Yet it is not always the end. And in the depths of grieving can be the promise of hope and redemption.

The tales and poems in this anthology explore the depths of love, loss, and transformation. Whether in a reimagined folktale or a modern urban fantasy, A Kind of Death features a fine balance of tragedy and comedy, but always with a hint of wonder and hope.

As this anthology concerns matters of loss (all handled tastefully and without graphic depiction), certain stories might prove challenging for sensitive readers. Recommend reading with a hot beverage and/or a packet of tissues.

My little tale in this anthology is called “Nothing More Than Death,” and it’s a story of Life, Death, and Fate, and the dying prince caught in their web—and in his own feelings for Death.


Deep enough to savor, good enough to binge

If you could choose from a thousand worlds to visit through one door, which would it be? The dystopian future where peanut butter is illegal? The alien invasion where beer saves the day? The dry flats of open plain where creatures hunt humans for their salty flesh?

Enter the forest of fear with a mother seeking to save her infant son. Launch weaponized pineapples and fire grape gatlings during the foodpocalypse. Destroy the Earth with a single flower. Try to hide your cyborg superpowers during a blind date. Protect innocent lives by sacrificing the legacy of generations of librarians.

Forty-six Bingeworthy tales written for fans of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thriller, and comedy, this collection of bite-sized brilliance is designed to keep you turning pages long past your bedtime.

My stories “Revolutionary Fire” and “Unexpected Encounters of a Draconic Kind” are included in this anthology, with “Encounters” winning the Editors’ Choice Award.
