What Goes Around . . . A Saga of Alien Greed, 
Heroism and Sacrifice

Something about the aliens who've landed on the insignificant planet, Deloqk sounds too good to be true to Captain Gnarnell. She sets out to uncover what she's sure is subterfuge.


Is Gnarnell's suspicion justified?

If so, do the aliens prevail?

Or do the Deloqkites rise to the occasion?


What happens to Gnarnell, her troops, and her planet will keep you speculating and turning pages until the end.


At just over 10,000 words, "What Goes Around..." is a quick, compelling read.

My interview with Left Hand Publishers is now live.  I'm submitting another story for their upcoming anthology Mindscapes Unimagined. The anthology focuses on the supernatural, horror, fantasy, urban fantasy, and speculative fiction. My story, "Drop-by-Drop," believe it or not, is a horror entry. http://ow.ly/qLtQ30kYEUk
