Library

You can read almost all of my stories online… for free.

Seriously.

See, I’m an independent artist. My biggest enemy is not a few hundred (or thousand) people reading my stories for free, but the damning obscurity of being lost among the millions of other creators on the internet. I grew up reading books from the library and scrounging discount titles from the used book store. Actually going to a shop and buying a new book was a thrilling treat. My parents certainly bought me a lot of books as a child (and still do), but I have read far more books borrowed from friends or the library.

Every book, short story, and audiobook linked on this page is free for you to enjoy. If you like one of my books, send me a few dollars via Ko-fi or PayPal. If you want to read the book in print or on your eBook device, click the purchase links to find them on all the major distribution sites.

And if you really like my work, tell other people. That’s really what will help me in the long run.

Science Fiction Novels & Thrillers

A Cold Day to Drown

A couple hundred years from now, the seas have risen, governments have failed, and half the population has been wiped out by an engineered plague. Trapped in this bleak world, Talbot Liu is a fixer trying to find a missing girl among the chaotic fringes of a city owned by gangs and corporations. Inspired by classics of modern noir cinema like Drive and Blade Runner, infused with the science fiction of Ghost in the Shell and All Tomorrow’s Parties, and tainted with smidgen of end times paranoia, A Cold Day to Drown is a thriller for anyone who likes their stories packed with mystery, violence, and a wood chipper load of dark humor.

In another life, Moira was a relic hunter scouring remote zones of the Shell for scraps of alien technology and human history to sell to the highest bidder, just trying to scrape together enough credits to pay down her debts and escape her past. That was before her lover was killed and uploaded into an alien computer.  Now Moira is the unwilling captain of the insane alien void ship Zau/Heraxo, scrounging for bounties in the corporate zones to earn enough credits to keep her void ship flying and what remains of Zau alive. Scoring the biggest bounty of her career should give Moira her ticket out of this life, but nothing is ever that easy.

Adventure Fiction

Oliver Lucas Adventures

The first novel I completed was an adventure yarn called The Staff of Moses. Featuring characters cast from the mold of Indiana Jones and Nathan Drake, these five novels were my playground for several years. I’m not done writing adventure fiction, but these days I am mostly focused on other genres. I hope you enjoy these lighthearted romps across the globe and through the realms of magic.
