Welcome! Start Here

If you’re checking my stories out for the first time, the bulk of what’s on this site is my novel “Safe as Houses,” a quirky, character-driven vampire story. The Table of Contents lists all the chapters in their proper order.  Or you can just plunge in with the first story in the series, Safe as Houses.  You can also click here for a quick synopsis of the story so far.  Or if you want something really touching and don’t mind spoilers, read my favorite episode.  Here’s another favorite episode, exciting and action packed with a crazy surprise twist at the end (followed up on in an amusing way here.)

If you prefer to hear a story rather than read it, you can subscribe to my podcast on ITunes.  The podcast is about two volumes behind the written version.  (If you’d like to check it out before subscribing, all the episodes are listed here and the first episode is here.

When you finish a chapter, you’ll see a line of buttons that you can use to share that chapter on Facebook, Twitter and several other places.  So if you like what you read, let other people read it too!  Also, please consider voting for “Safe as Houses” at TopWebFiction.com.  And here’s a link to the glowing 4.5-star review of my story on webfictionguide.com.

There’s also The Sky is Made of Stone, a hard science fiction short story with an idea I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else.  When Mac hears that an asteroid is approaching his world, he goes out to catch it with his bare hands.  I’m pretty sure I got all the math and science right, but feel free to pick any holes you find.

New Stuff

This is the final chapter of Volume IV of Safe as Houses, a goodbye to the main characters for now. I’m taking a break from vampires for a while to publish other fiction. But I will return to this story with the final volume in a few months.

Podcast: Safe as Houses Podcast 42 continues revelations and speculations by Sally and Lavinia. You can also subscribe to the podcast on ITunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/fiction-more-safe-as-houses/id733590852.

Enjoy reading!

Mature Content Warning

Our lives have mature content.  So do my stories.  They’re not erotica but sex, violence and strong language shows up if truly part of the story.  You might read 20 pages without a single f-word or naked buttock, then find yourself in a firestorm of passion.

Other Writings

I also publish articles from time to time on various topics.  Here’s a list of all the current stuff.
