The Dartmouth Book Exchange (DBE, Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia) will be doing an online Facebook spotlight of me. They have copies of Mythology From The Rock for sale there which includes my story Only Deities Need Apply.
The DBE is a fantastic bookstore that supports a lot of local authors. They have knowledgeable staff and I love their SF and Fantasy section!
EVERY Copy of the collection at DBE has my autograph by my story. I also included a free bookmarks that I created! Each one has a different image coming from my story.
Keep Your Eyes Peeled on DBE’s Facebook page.
I’ve donated a free copy of Mythology From the Rock for a contest run by as DBE. The winner gets a book with my autograph and a funky bookmark I made!

Here’s a wee blurb about my story:
Deities are hanging out at the food court in Scotia Square Mall figuring out which human to help. Only Mimi never asked for any help!
It’s a fun Urban Fantasy story. I can safely say I’ve had meals at every location in the story!
New Art featuring Covers!
The new image on the web page features my two independently published books and the three anthologies I’m in from Engen Books.
Yup, I’m in Five! Count ‘em Five books! Cooooool!
A.F. Stewart with AFS Cover Designs graciously created the great image with the covers I provided. (The text is all my fault!)

Squib spends a lot of time in the Line-for-Basics. Ill and scrabbling for more resources beyond what they could earn this week, Squib has to find a better way. A lot of ways exist to get ahead living in The Towers. It beats the harder scrabble for a safe place to live outside the protected dome. The high ranking citizens of The Towers have figured it out. Just surviving on the basics for food and meds isn’t enough. Time for Squib to crack the code.
Family Business is a stand alone dystopian short story about the character of Squib from my Recycle Series.
It's an origin story that takes place in the early years of The Towers.
What would you give up to get ahead in a resource scarce society?
Amazon, Apple, Kobo

A Trio of Creepy Flash Fiction
A fun fast read of three flash fiction pieces. Each tale is between 100 and 250 words.
Cut Throat's Wife
Be wary of what is tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the coves of Nova Scotia. More history has been forgotten than we know. This tale comes from whispers over one such cove.
What does this Gardener grow? I do enjoy to garden. What you add as a soil amendment can be more important than what you plant.
This tale received an Honourable Mention in NYC Midnight's Microfiction Challenge (May 2020).
Art is subjective to the eyes of the beholder and those of the painter. Any media can be used to create art. How does a alien create art?
I love to write and share stories. Take a look through my site to see what piques your interest. Science Fiction and Fantasy are two of my favorite genres to explore. Poetry is also an interest of mine. My published works include short stories, poetry, and a radio drama.
