Teddy Dormer lives with a condition unlike any other: in order to sleep, he must not only inadvertently steal the ability for others around him to sleep, but he also experiences their worst nightmares, memories, and darkest secrets. This is a condition he has lived with his entire life, often with dire consequences, but he has a system that works for him. Teddy lives on the road, perpetually moving from place to place, never subjecting his presence on the same population for longer than a single night. However, at a small hotel in Texas, Teddy discovers through a young woman’s dreams that she has been kidnapped. Driven by conscience, Teddy does what he must to find and free her from the clutches of evil. What he cannot anticipate, however, is how this singular deed will trigger a chain of events that will not only compel him to confront an evil from his past but will also lead him to an encounter with a force far beyond anything he has ever faced before – a force with the potential to change the world as it sees fit! Teddy is a novel about the dichotomy of the human condition, for even in the face of absolute madness, good may persevere and hope will endure.
My new novel, In the House of Wolves, releases in December 2017. Forgive me, I haven't prepared an official synopsis yet, but it's a haunted house novel with sci-fi underpinnings. The first two novels, Teddy and Wake, are part of the Teddy Dormer series. However, almost every story I write is part of a connected multiverse. (The Silo Saga: The Cleaner is the exception to the rule.) The digital story Desynchrony is a tie-in to the Teddy novels; chronologically, it's the third work in the series. The newest addition is Flux, a tale that appears in Inn Between Worlds: Volume 1, edited by Thomas A. Farmer.

Princess Emilia Aurelius was only seven when she watched her mother die at the hands of her father--martyred for believing in the God of the Atlas Empire's Insurgo rebels. At seventeen, exiled to a military outpost where no one knows her true identity, she's vowed to leave her royalty behind and explore the truth of the Insurgo rebels her mother loved.

When the Emperor of Atlas summons the princesses from each of the provinces to the imperial city to choose a wife for the crown prince, Emilia must leave her military life behind to join a royal court rife with cunning and intrigue. Navigating the waters of court politics and budding love are treacherous on their own, but Emilia fears for her life should anyone learn of her Insurgo sympathies.

With an unlikely ally in the captain of the emperor's guard, Emilia must uncover the truth of the Insurgos, start a revolution, and learn to become the princess she's vowed never to be, all while protecting her heart from a prince who could sign her death warrant.

Long ago, the Korovega ruled the Earth. They disappeared, leaving behind humankind's collective memories and myths of demons walking among us. Now, they've awakened once more and they want their planet back. Armed with magic more powerful than anything the military can bring to bear, they are like no enemy the human race has ever faced. The Korovega execute a simultaneous attack on all the world's capitals at once, demolishing human civilization almost overnight. In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, a group of friends bands together for survival. As the chaos brings out the worst in humanity, can Owen, Ben, Sam, and their friends survive... the week the world ended?

Sitting outside of time and space is the Inn Between Worlds. Residents might say it's a place for travelers, or a place to rest, a place to find excitement. Or they might say it's dangerous and to be avoided at all costs because Reality Does Not Work Right inside its infinite walls.
-Due out late this year or early next, “The Stars Have Eyes” is also set in the universe opened by “Apollo,” albeit much later on. For years, freighters have been disappearing, until few remained. Now, one of the last still in service will learn firsthand exactly what happened… if they survive.

-Coming some time after Stars, “Scourge of Gods,” is a sweeping drama set against a backdrop of war and alien invasion. Karma comes for everyone.

–Have you ever heard the expression, “god willing and the creek don’t rise?” Well, the world ended a few weeks ago, and so in the sequel to “The Week the World Ends,” it seems like things aren’tgetting any better, “And The Creek Rose.”
I also operate as "Black Knight Books," and am open to publishing other authors' works.

And then she fell…Twice…

After her cheating husband left her more than just a little broken inside, Alexa counted on that being all that destiny held for her in the romance department. In reality, her fast-paced career and her magnet for trouble best friend, Sierra, kept her on her toes as it was. But when she and Sierra take off on a last-minute girls’ trip to London, she discovers fate has quite the sense of humor.

Alexa falls hard for swanky millionaire, Logan, and he’s ready to prove to Alexa that showing a girl a good time is more than just something he built his business on. He’s everything a girl could want in a steamy vacation fling. So why is it so impossible to get someone else out of her mind?

When eighteen-year-old Aura Edwards is thrown into a world she hasn’t belonged in since she was a little girl, she’s willing to make the best of it. With the promise of becoming the next British princess and the rekindling of a once upon a time romance with Tristan, her betrothed, how could she not at least try? But when her heart is unexpectedly torn in two, she must decide between her love for the boy who never forgot her and the vampire who, against all odds, saved her life.
Aura’s life takes a detour when Adam betrays his clan and does everything in his power to protect her. He may not understand why, but Adam is drawn to Aura and his instant attraction to her takes them both by surprise. Tristan is not ready to give up the fight for Aura though, even when he discovers the twisted history bearing down on him and Adam. But when, Aura discovers a dark secret hiding in plain sight, she begins to question who she can trust.

The castle is a place where everyone wears many faces and where the darkest of desires come to play. It’s where someone you thought you knew, might turn out to be someone you don’t know at all. Sometimes fairy tales come true. And sometimes they become your worst nightmare. Aura broke all the rules when she fell in love with a vampire and it cost the lives of everyone she loved. Now, trapped in the hell that Tristan has created for her, who will hear her cries for help? And who will even care? Isa tore apart lives when she lusted after a prince, a mistake she paid for with her life. In more ways than one. She’ll stop at nothing to satisfy her craving for retribution. The only thing sweeter than BLOOD? Revenge.

Kayden never thought of herself as the Belle of the ball, but she finds herself in the royal palace, surrounded by society darlings - and the only thing she has in common with them is that they're all vying for the Prince. They're after his crown. She's after his head.
As if being a teenager isn't hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you're anything like me, you know it's hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don't even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Not to mention all of the crazy new alien gifts you really wish you could return.

Life can change in a moment... in less than a moment actually. In less time than it takes to inhale, you can find yourself lost... taken... changed... dragged into a war that has raged for centuries - a war that no one really expects to win.
I write CLEAN reads, but, FYI: there is violence.

With Ariana’s world falling apart and the future of Lunadar at stake, how will she bring her father’s murderer to justice and fulfill a deathbed promise to protect Lunadar’s legacy?
