COLOSSUS (Nov 2015) — Note: My Name Is Not Heather Stokes will soon be re-titled RUN RABBIT RUN
Abducted and held captive, four high school seniors are forced to entertain the malicious appetites of an unpredictable predator. He calls himself Rhodes. They call him Colossus, the looming, threatening figure teetering on the edge of madness.
Heather Stokes, no stranger to tragedy, does all she can to protect her friends, risking her life and sanity. As days of torture drag into weeks of Hell, both Heather and Rhodes realize that they are in over their heads, and it is possible that none of them will survive.
COLOSSUS is a brutal psychological thriller that will have fans of Gillian Flynn and James Patterson adding a new name to their list.

Fifteen-year-old Thatch is now free of the horrors of Flint Ranch, sent away by a mother who can’t stand the sight of him, to live with a father he’s never met.

Bookblogger reviews (for both):
Assassin’s Arrangement (Aug 2017)
“There was absolutely nothing remarkable about Miss White at all, and that is exactly why the assassin chose her.”
When Thorne meets Miss White, he thinks very little of her beyond that she makes a convenient distraction – and Thorne is all about convenient distractions; He is the best assassin in town. When he learns he has unwittingly and indirectly put Miss White’s life in danger, he does what he does best: Uses it to his advantage. He will resolve the threat against Miss White if she assists him with a particularly challenging mark. But each brief, unremarkable encounter with Miss White bonds Thorne a bit stronger every time.
I also have works-in-progress and short stories posted for free on my Wattpad:
After a run of irritating and less-than-glorious gigs, security team CONsent, LLC is hired by the young entrepreneur Jeremy Sekel to act as private police for a private community called Hattersville. The catch? The citizens of Hattersville are either employees for a pharmaceutical company that develops highly-experimental drugs, or the criminally-insane patients who volunteered to test them in exchange for an environment that resembles freedom.
The team, led by Michelle Vespira, learns they need to do more than just protect the employees from the patients, and the patients from each other and themselves: they also need to catch drug smugglers, prevent corporate espionage, intercept serial-killer groupies… oh, and convince some of the patients they do not have divine powers.
Described as Fox’s LUCIFER meets SyFy’s EUREKA.
Hank and Amber Noel are madly in love. They have two healthy, intelligent children. But their lives are far from ordinary: Hank only sees his family two days a month, spending the rest of the time away “for work.” He cherishes those precious hours in relative peace, until one night an unexpected visitor unravels Hank’s loosely-woven secret and puts everyone he cares for in danger.
A short story inspired by a nightmare. A woman finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time.
