About this author

Travis Simmons was kicked out of magic school because he enjoyed mundane habits like canning and cooking instead of using spells. Forced to travel the world selling his sword and (often defunct) sorcery, he stumbled upon a pack of normal dogs that he mistook for magical animals and imagined he could communicate with them. Still, they enjoyed the pizza he would toss their way, and they adopted him as one of their own. When a roving horde of zombies attacked his new family, Travis used all of his abilities to call upon aid from some witch friends who helped him fight the undead horde. But, always the introvert, the witches realized Travis was rather boring, so after the excitement of battle was over, they went back to their magical ponderings ...more

The Bonds of Blood (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Events are spiraling out of control for the Neferis family. Jovian attacked by a demon dog lore says can’t exist; Amber secreted away in the middle of the night; a mystical wind preventing a rescue attempt and something stalking the halls of the plantation. They find a way out of the house to pursue their sister only to be haunted by demonic creatures and visited by spirits. But there are changes they aren’t ready to handle. Joya can’t understand why the math book she has been given can glow, conjure power within her she seems capable (if unwilling) to control, and ward off evil. Angelica and Jovian can’t figure out how they can do things no one else is able to do. There are seemingly no answers until they are confronted with an ancient adversary of house Neferis, but will she grant the answers they seek, or will she fray the tenuous thread binding them to their old lives?
