A Little Snippet of a Work in Progress

into the deep

From Chapter 3 of Into the Deep

It’s the story of 2 siblings who are immune to a virus that has ravaged Earth and must escape, with the help of an alien who they blame for what happened on Earth. A simple plan to escape and return turns into something much bigger when they find themselves on a new planet that compels them to go deeper to free the oppressed.


(read and comment on my WIP here)

I look around at the windowless walls and the drop ceilings. That’s it.

“We have to climb through the ceiling and drop down in a room close to the exit door,” I send to Morren and Ely.

“First, we have to stay quiet so the guards move on and search another area,” Morren sends back to us.

Dad sits on the floor near the small inside room where Morren had found him. They’ve already done testing on him and taken blood. Too much blood. I look at Tezzi in Morren’s arms. I hadn’t paid attention before that moment. She’s asleep, her head laying limply on Morren’s shoulder.

There is no way we will get them out like this. I look at Ely. She already knew. Her psychic superiority is irritating. I don’t want to rely on her and I don’t trust her. But we’re stuck in a room and there is no way my dad and little sister will make an escape.

“You can come back for them,” I hear her say in my head.

“Shut up!” I shoot back in our physically silent exchange.

Morren looks at me again. He hadn’t heard her, only me and assumes I’m being rude to Ely again. I am, but he doesn’t understand why.

Name Change to Book 2 of Chosen Series?


It is quite likely I will have to modify my the title of the second book of my Chosen series. I checked the title for other releases coming out this fall and there is one by the exact title releasing this month. Sigh. It’s by a NYT Bestselling author and I don’t want my book to get lost.

I still plan to work and get book 2 out by November but must now mull over the title. The plan is to release the eBook first and have the paperback also close to ready so you can get the first two books in the series for Christmas. There is a telling of a story by one of the Keepers about a Festival of Lights that takes place during the Winter Solstice which is a must read.

Anyways, I will be playing around with titles as I edit, get my cover, and do all the other business of self-publishing.

To get started on book 1 you can get it here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01H7TAQXW

The Wait: A Paranormal Short Story

The Wait Thumbnail

The WAIT-Paranormal Short StoryDay after day, rain, shine, or even through the cold winds that brought glistening white snow and frozen waters, I would see him. Every day, sitting in that same spot, waiting. Waiting as the commuters made their way to work. Waiting as they came and had lunch around the pier. Waiting as they made their way back past him again, on their somber journeys home. Then when the sun was gone, so was he.
What he was waiting for all this time I didn’t know. From the window where I watched the world, I chronicled his comings and goings in my mind. I never saw him arrive and never saw him walk away, but he was the same each day, never bringing anything with him besides himself and never leaving anything behind.
I opened the window to let in the autumn air. September struggled to hang on to its languishing summer, taking shelter in the leaves of the trees that still clung to the branches. Nevertheless, they would have to fall soon. And, eventually, winter would come.
I breathed in the dryness of the breeze, sneezing as it tickled my nostrils. Today would be the day. I would finally leave my perfect fifth story bedroom view in my oversized townhouse and walk down the stairs and out the front door.
“I can do it,” I kept whispering to myself.
