Davis and May started as a project to combine music and words together. I borrowed a song mixing program from my brother and thought it was the coolest thing in the world. The song additions ended after three or four chapters, but the story continued.

A short book of short stories. The People on the Highway series is hosted on this very blog typically appearing on Wednesday mornings. In the book version, we go through a number of morning drives and stories about all the folks that pass by on the highway, giving them a background story and maybe a chat about where they’re heading. There are stories all around us and People on the Highway is my tribute to that fact of life.
This book is a quick “lunch hour read” available at Amazon for just 99 cents! Meet a score of characters for less than the price of a poorly constructed cheeseburger.
Deck and Amy
Recurring characters that absolutely hate social interactions. Not a serial, not a book, but my two favorite characters. Follow their adventures in avoidance right here on the ol’ blog.
The name needs changing. A crazed king, a populace in need of justice and four nameless characters set to change their world. Follow The Alchemist, The Academic, The Musketeer and the Instigator as they take part in a revolt against a Royal court that needs to be stopped.
This is a steampunk serial found on this site for free!
Blue light fills the room. Strange noises sound everywhere. An agent calls the house. Today is going to suck.
A free short horror story.
Sadly no longer available online. I’m figuring out next steps on how to make it available again and finish it. Jukepop is sorely missed.
Wren is a college town. Not a top tier school, but in-state students love it for the low cost and respectable degree value. Freshman year is just starting for Evelyn, Lex and Thatcher. The usual excitement of a new school year is there, but these three strangers have a secret that will bring them together; they have powers. When Thatcher’s brother, Roan, also super powered, says they should work together to stop Wren’s crime problem they create a super hero team that is bent on saving their adopted home town.
They are unaware of the depth of the town’s problems and soon are being hunted by a crime lord leading a secretive band of evil super powered people.
Read Wren over at Jukepop for free! This is the book that started my whole writing obsession and I am quite fond of it even though it is not very well put together compared to what I’m doing these days. The book is unfinished and I do really plan on getting back to it. Really.
