It is cold outside! All my friends in the polar vortex area, keep warm. It’s a good time to make a fire and read a book!

I have found good things come in threes.

This month I will have two stories coming out:

First, Thunderbird is at frontiertales.com free for the month of February.

What would you do to correct the mistakes in your life? One man has the chance to make everything right again, but it will take all his will and courage. Will he survive—or become a sacrifice to the god Thunderbird?

If you like it, you can vote for it to be included in “The Best of Frontier Tales”. Enjoy

Second, my first podcast of my flash fiction story Prairie is on the Manawaker Studio Podcast on Thursday, February 21. You can hear it on ITUNES (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/manawaker-studios-flash-fiction/id980747861), on GOOGLE MUSIC, or on YOUTUBE (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc2pv_XbqvSd2BTkB3mA6jg).

And thirdly, my novel is finished, edited, and I’ll be looking for an agent and a publisher. I’m so excited — it’s like birthing a baby — and it’s the first of a trilogy (or more, perhaps) of my PI Samantha Justice and her dog, Ivan. Stay tuned for more info. When I know, you’ll know!

Thank you for your continued support. Stay toasty this winter. Spring will come soon.



is a National Best Seller with both USA TODAY and AMAZON.
The mass-market paperback came out in September 2018. If you didn’t catch the SOT train before, visit Barnes & Noble or your favorite bookseller.

My story is “Coyote.” I hope you enjoy it.
