Online Stories/Novels

Below are all of the finished works and longer works-in-progress (WiPs) separated by genre and then by universe/series/etc. Items without an established universe are listed under “Unaffiliated Stories.”

I started out trying to put everything on one page and then I realised I have TOO MUCH STUFF. So. Yes. Now I am trying to make a subpage for each universe, which is a work in progress.

Urban/Suburban Fantasy

This section also includes Present Day or Near Future Fantasy and a dash of Paranormal Romance (clearly marked). If it happens on Earth and there’s no Clarke’s Third Law lampshade– then you’ll find it here! 🙂


Baronverse Rought Draft IconWerewolves, Very limited Magic use

Centuries ago a dying witch cursed an evil Baron and his seven sons… but the curse didn’t go quite as planned. Generations later the Baron’s descendants –by blood or adoptive oath– roam an increasingly urban world.

Imagine a universe where becoming a werewolf had more to do with changing your last name than who bit who. Where taking the oath meant perfect health and near instant healing. Where your mortal enemies worked with magical silver and no one else had a clue you existed. A fractured life you were forced to reinvent every twenty years just to stay hidden.

Dogs of the Never Never’verse

Dogs of the Never NeverGhost Dogs and Deer (and people), Minimal magic usage

There is a Veil that divides Life from Death and keeps the dead at bay. Ghostly packs of hunting hounds patrol the border, drawing power from their human anchors. Their bond is a tradition nearly as old as Life itself, but that is about to change.

Welcome to a world of non-magical companion humans and the dogs that tolerate them!

Tales of the Drunken Unicorn

Tales of the Drunken UnicornMore Talking Animals than you can shake a stick at! Magic everywhere.

The last thing Samantha had expected when she went to Delta Sigma Phi’s Halloween Party was that she’d end up the proud owner of a magical companion animal. But one drunken ouija board adventure later, she’s got an annoyed unicorn following her around and a binding contract with no escape clause. It’s not that she minds saving the world, it’s just she’d got better things to do… like passing midterms, or finding better blackmail on her RA (Dry dorm? What dry dorm?).

Nifty Picture Goes HereToo Old for Neverland

Fairy Tales-ish, Near Future, Magic Usage

The girl who isn’t Wendy traded away her name for immortality and a chance to stop the pied piper who wasn’t Peter Pan from stealing any more children…

This is the story of Wendy and her band of unLost Boys (and girls) who fight against Fae who steal away children.

Nifty Picture Goes HereWhistling in the Dark

Near Future, Apocalyptic, Urban Fantasy/Soft Science Fiction

Five thousand years ago Good cheated and their victory in the millennial battle for control lasted a bit longer than it was supposed to. Now Evil has finally set things right, but no one told Good that the game was on. A thousand years of darkness are on the horizon and we’re running out of flashlights…

Science Fiction

Most of the following stories are Soft Science Fiction with a few darts into unabashed Science Fantasy. Someday I will pull off a Hard SciFi story… but not yet (darnit).

Blackguards and Plaster Saints

Blackguards and Plaster SaintsNear Future, Soft Science Fiction

One morning the Earth woke to an alien ultimatum: tithe its children to the Fleet in exchange for defense against the interstellar war that was coming or face annihilation alone. They had a year to decide. Twelve months that lasted forever –that lasted a heartbeat– but in the end, they accepted. On Exodus, ten percent of the population between the ages of five and thirty-five vanished. In exchange the Ship left the accumulated knowledge from hundreds of worlds already harvested… and blueprints for ships of their own. Earth has forty years, four alien advisers, and an oncoming century of war.

In Dreams of Trees

Nifty Picture Goes HereFractal timelines, Soft Science Fiction

There’s a city that waits in the spaces between the worlds, encasing an endless spiral of doors that open to worlds that could have been. But for some people those doors open in as well as out…

Gray and Tan are chasing a kidnapper, Blue and Horn are hunting a serial killer, and Red is trying to save the world. There’s an Endless City hidden in the woods that holds the answers they need, but can they unravel its secrets in time?


Placeholder (cover) 75x100Near Future, Soft Science Fiction

Simon has been kidnapped by an alien spaceship on a suicide mission. (or: A psychopath is kidnapped by an alien spaceship. Hijinks ensue.) NaNoWriMo 2016

(Contains Chasing Falling Stars, the October MuseFic in which the outline of the story is brainstormed. Badly.)


The Rabbit Who Ate the MoonFar Future, Soft Science Fiction

Firsts have the knack of shedding their mental humanity to slip into alien ways of thinking, which makes them perfect candidates for convincing sentient races we’re something more than animals. But once that’s done they have to find their way back again… and sometimes they need a helping hand to lead them home.

Sixteen Tons of Light

Nifty Picture Goes HereNearish Future, Soft Science Fiction

Humans have expanded into the universe and the Company makes good profit off supplying the far flung colony worlds with supplies, service personnel, and technology. Carson is one of those personnel (a xenobiologist with a knack for fauna control) and Ship is, well his Ship.

“You load sixteen tons, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt.” — Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford

Nifty Picture Goes HereStarCrossed

Near Future, Soft Science Fiction, Webcomics

Space in the future is vast and populated with more anthropomorphic species that you can shake a stick at! (And oddly anachronistic technologies because this was originally drawn back in 2000 and I am bad at predicting the future.)

This verse is primarily webcomic focused, although there are some prose bits as well. I didn’t start out as a graphic novel ‘verse, but it’s hard to stop doodling once you start…

The SunderingThe Sundering

Near Future, Soft Science Fiction

The Earth and Not-Earth are in the midst of a Sundering, growing spiral patterns that swap chunks of one planet for another. No one knows how it started, how to stop it, or how to deal with the chaos the Sundering leaves behind. (Dun, dun DUN!) NaNoWriMo 2010 novel-in-progress.

Songs of the Summer God

Nifty Picture Goes HereLimited Magic, Magical Companion Monsters

For as long as anyone can remember, otherworldly Goldens and Binders have roamed the land, feasting on magical stones as they appear. Humans with a knack for finding the stones are prized by both sides, but only the Goldens have integrated themselves into human society. Goldens work with their human companions to help protect the world from danger while Binders sulk in the shadows, mist-like demons that can take any form, they survive by abducting the talented.

At least that’s what the Goldens would have you believe…

That Don’t Impress Me Much

FoxHawk DoodleTalking Animals, Magic Galore, Generic Fantasy

Generic fantasy world where the magical companion animals are partners not sidekicks and the humans have a healthy respect for predators the size of a horse.

A parody of the genre, of sorts.

Other Fiction

Every so often I write something that doesn’t fit neatly into a category. I’ve been tempted to call this the ‘outlier’ section, but that seemed a bit mean. ;)These are stories that aren’t from an established universe. Maybe someday the plot bunnies will strike again—but for now they are standalones.
