I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.


Earth Legend

You can read this story now:



Elle Omstead is a descendant of Ceres, goddess of the harvest. She knows that her ability with plants will be essential to keep the plants alive that will keep the colonists on board the space ship Goliath alive as it sails through space to another habitable planet. But her efforts to become a part of the crew or even a colonist have been thwarted at every turn so, with no other options available to her, she stows away.

She’s caught, of course, and thrown in the brig where her powers are useless and the plants begin to wither and die.

The Olmstead family first appeared in the short story The Tree Thing, published in volume 5 of the Talking Stick by the Jackpine Writers Bloc. It’s available free on Smashwords and can be accessed by clicking on the cover on the front page of this blog. If you like The Tree Thing, I’m confident you’ll love Earth Legend.
