You Made It
Hey, if you made it here to the "secret page," you're one of the elite few who can successfully navigate those pesky sign-up forms. As a reward for your perseverance, you get to download the special freebies I reserve for the people who take a little extra time to connect with me. I appreciate that you did.
Accordingly, here are two free dark-fantasy novelettes: King of Midwinter and Audette. You can't get either one anywhere else for free. Download to your heart's content, and if you need a different format, use my Get in Touch page to let me know.
Treasure hunter Audette Godfrey has gone everywhere and done everything. Now she's after one last treasure--the one that will take her where no-one has ever gone before. All she has to do is reach it before the cultists, who want it for their own terrible purposes, and evade the bounty hunter on her trail.
King of Midwinter
Persis Mitchel is the ordinary twin, the sensible twin, the one forever looking after her feckless, talented brother Briar.
On Midwinter Night, Briar's agent calls to say that he hasn't been into the gallery for months. As always, it's sensible Persis to the rescue.
She finds Briar in his studio--filthy, half-deranged and painting with a genius he has never possessed before.
Investigation draws Persis into a world of crushing beauty and lingering darkness and a bargain to save her brother that may cost both of them their futures.
