Crime Fiction & Fantasy

Pursuing the Dead, a Jacob Schmidt novelette, was a 2019 Author Shout Reader Ready Awards winner. The book was a "Top Pick" in the mystery and thriller category. Other stories in the Jacob Schmidt series include Delivering Jacob, Children of the Snow, Dry Drowning, Burden Street, Eyes on the Prize, Broken Inside, and Between the Lines.

Meanwhile, my latest fantasy series, The Emperor's Guard, will continue this spring. Hunting Glory, book two in the series, is now available. Traitor's Mark, which completes the three-part story arc, will follow on June 2. If you're a fan of light fantasy and enjoy historical settings, give it a try. All of my books, series or not, act as standalone stories.  

Praise for Delivering Jacob, the first story in my Jacob Schmidt series.


A powerful and poignant short story that borders on the paranormal.  - Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
