Happy Halloween!

My debut novel, They'll Never Cheer Again is available now in paperback and electronic editions. It's an homage to the slasher films of the late 70s and early 80s.

Read the first three chapters.

From the rear cover:

A brutal hazing incident leaves a freshman cheerleader hospitalized in a coma. In response, Casper Falls High School disbands both the football and cheerleading teams.

For a decade, the football field is quiet.

The school board has voted to bring back the football team and its cheerleaders.

Ann Howard's twin sister, Lauren, is one of those new cheerleaders. While Ann deals with the challenges of being an openly transgender teen in a closed-minded small town, her sister's place on the squad and some of Lauren's new friends threaten the previously rock-solid relationship between the siblings.

Meanwhile, a murderous force has awoken, intent on vengeance and driven by a single powerful mantra: They Will Never Cheer Again.

Buy the trade paperback here.

The paperback is also available through Amazon (with Prime shipping) or Barnes & Noble.

Or get the Kindle Version.

Electronic editions also available from the Apple iTunes Store, Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and more coming soon.

Other News!

I'm excited to share a Warehouse 13 fanfic that I've written, which includes heavy reference to the fiction of Philip K. Dick. The story is called "Do Warehouse Agents Dream of Artifact Sheep?"
Click on the cover or check out the page for Do Warehouse Agents Dream of Artifact Sheep to find out more, like where to read it.

If you haven't watched Warehouse 13, you really should. And if you haven't read much (or any!) Philip K. Dick, well . . . you really should.
