I’ve been talking a lot about free fiction lately, but I’ve neglected to write “About the Story” blurbs for most of the pieces I’ve posted.
To correct that oversight, here they are.
Once you find one you like the sound of, click the link above to be taken to the page with links to all my free fiction. Some of the stories are still in progress or haven’t started yet.
The Choice – Contemporary Fiction
Rita is faced with a choice: give up the job she hates and head into the unknown, or continue in the certainty that she will be both miserable and able to pay her bills.
The Dark Tide – Fantasy
The gods are angry, and everyone in the city must flee down the mountain to escape the dark tide, a roiling cloud that comes from the ground and destroys everything it meets. Find out what happens when one man chooses something that is precious to him over safety.
Time Gone By – Science Fiction
It’s summertime, and a grandmother takes her four grandchildren camping. The grandkids are part of a blended family, and don’t always get along. Their lives are about to get a whole lot more complicated, the stakes a lot higher, and the danger a lot greater than tripping over tree roots.

A ruthless man will stop at nothing to discover a way to bring the nation to its knees before him.
