Short Fiction Collections
Love Stories, a collection of seven previously published and five previously unpublished short stories.
What is love? What can love drive us to do?
In these stories, love pushes us to revenge, to reach beyond the boundaries of life and death. To rescue a family member. To fight the good fight without even knowing it, or to risk everyone and everything to save someone who may or may not be worthy. To make the wrong decisions and walk into hell. To transcend who we are.
Love can make us both the best and worst versions of ourselves.
Becoming, a short fiction prequel to my novel in progress.
An innocent young man must face an ancient evil—including an evil that has taken root inside him—and learn who he really is. What choice will he make, when he finally has one?
