I’ve teamed up with my author friend, Kristen Painter (USA Today Best Selling Author), to write something a little different. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them.
LOST BOY, A Post Apocalyptic Short Story
An invasion throws the world into war and leaves a boy lost and on his own. Can he survive the chaos? Or will it change him in ways he can never come back from?
Nothing will ever be the same again.
CREEPER, A Science Fiction Short Story
Desperate to earn enough to pay his creditors, the captain of the cargo ship, Despora, manages to land the haul of a lifetime. With some shady side dealing, he’s going to come out ahead. But he soon learns the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
And sometimes, the green isn’t grass at all.
Sometimes, getting what you want is the worst thing that can happen.
Dell Eckhart lives on the wrong side of the portal. The side where the ruin and devastation left behind by the war makes everyday life harder than it’s ever been. More than anything, he wants to win a ticket for passage through the portal. He’s running out of chances, but he’s not going to let that stop him.
He needs that ticket. It’s the only way to save the one person he truly cares about. There’s just one problem. That person is actually an android. And androids aren’t allowed through the portal.
Doesn’t matter. He’ll figure it out. Because life on the other side of the portal is perfect and easy, and she’ll be safe there. At least, that’s what he’s been led to believe…
