I grew up (in age only) in rural North Carolina and central Ohio, so people watching has been great. Dungeons and Dragons (second ed!) and trying to be a Dungeon Master with a future lawyer, brilliant tech guys, and someone who read the books for fun taught me how to weave a good story and make any holes air tight. I've been in a writers' group since 2002. They have taught me invaluable lessons in critiquing and editing and reading outside my genre. I'm in a science fiction/fantasy writers' group with two other wonderful writers, who challenge what I've submitted, and I love them for it.

My intermediate novella, House Glasses, is going to be published through Mirror Publishing!!!! Heather has been in too many foster homes, and she has finally been adopted by Jessy and Peyton Tenterden. It is a new house for all of them, though the old place has been in Peyton's family for generations. In her room, Heather finds a rabbit doll she names Oliver Mayflower Appleworth. When Oliver ta...

House Glasses (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:25PM
Description: Heather, ten, has just been adopted by a young couple, Jessy and Peyton Tenterden, and they are moving into Peyton's great-grandfather's old home. She finds a rabbit doll in an old cedar chest, and discovers the hidden world of stuffed animals. This story is aimed for children between the ages of 8 and 13, but all ages can enjoy Heather's journey.
In the Dead of Night, Sanguin Nights Saga #1 (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:35PM
Description: This is the beginning of the adventures of Sebastian and Elizabeth, young modern vampires in Ohio. I wanted to differentiate these characters from other vampires by focusing on their humanity, how one would really react to such a question- "Will you become a creature of the night?" This novel is separated into three books, or novellas: Crimson Twilight, Strawberry Shadows, and Phoenix Cycle. Crimson Twilight tells of Sebastian and Elizabeth's origins. Strawberry Shadows brings a very young vampire, Strawberry, under their wing, and explains vampire heirarchy. Phoenix Cycle shows how the vampires of Columbus are unravelling, and Sebastian and his new friends must help bring peace.
The Old Victorian (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 18, 2009 11:22AM
Description: Three paranormal investigators try to prove that there are ghosts inside the old Victorian house. I appologize for any formatting issues. This was inspired by my own work as a paranormal investigator and by a short story by Jorge Luis Borges called House of Asterion.

Sierra is on page 199 of 534 of Resurrection Engines: Wow! This collection of short stories, based on old classics, and retold in a steampunk and alternate timeline retellings are very very good! I have not read any of the authors' works before. You don't have to have read the original classic before- including White Fang, Silas Marner, and Snow White.
