The Lamb

It's been a year since the world ended. Breeze and her friend Lucy have managed to survive since then, with no one to rely on except one another. Scavenging when they can, and avoiding the monsters that crept out of the cracks of the world when it shattered.

When they meet another pair of survivors who seem to know a great deal more about what is going on with the world, they join them in their travels. Sandalphon and Sammael have secrets, however. And secrets can be deadly in the apocalypse.

This is really the last draft. #4. If any of you are not tired of my book and would read and suggest, I'd be so helped and happy. If you do, only read chapters marked fourth draft. Thank you. I really really do want to pursue a publisher.

Hearts Together

A contemporary novel about good people finding their places in a religious community amid conflicting ideas of good. Two LDS (Mormon) kids' high school romance raises questions: What is real? What is beauty? Can I safely judge by appearances? Can people really change? How much of what I hear at church does God want me to obey?

Readers say:

"Beautifully written."

"I am so pulled into the story."

"Great characters."

"Strong female lead with resilience, wit and a powerful mind."

"VERY funny."


Tiny-to-small revisions of eleven chapters, so you're reading the latest version, right up to the hour that WriteOn disappears from the Web. (Alas.)

Journey's Child

Twelve-year-old Gilly is about to journey through a summer filled with loss, guilt, bullies, and unlikely friendships. Told by her, it's the story of the summer when 'the terrible awful thing' happened. It's a poignant story that leads the reader down a path where broken, vulnerable people learn to forgive and let go of their guilt and grief. Unfortunately, this lesson comes at a high price. A past its prime art colony on the Oregon coast serves as the backdrop for Journey's Child.


Thank you Sue Hart, as always.

An Allodyne Touch

In the aftermath of the Great Relocation, the population is only permitted to come together on the Neurolink. At first Lucas and his friends thought it a wondrous device, creating virtual worlds at the touch of a button. Then they discovered it had a defect. While they were on it, any form of contact made them sick. The more they used it, the worse it got until, one by one, they disappeared.

The Train For Lonely People

A social recluse takes a ride on a train in order to sate his loneliness, but it turns out to be darker than he imagined.

A short story.


This is the final draft of this story. I sent it out to a few dozen literary magazines just to assess what the waters are like, and I received a handful of higher-tier rejections and a personalized one, so that's definitely encouraging! This is the final draft I have after going through it with David Rodeback's critiques in mind. His critiques have left me a better writer. Thank you, David. I don't know if thanking will ever be enough.
