Christmas In Whimsy
a novel

Welcome to Whimsy, a mystical town where legend comes to life at Christmas. It’s said the Spirit of Whimsy appears this time of year to grant your deepest wish. Some say she’s an angel, some say she’s pure energy. For Lexie, Robin, and Margot, she’s their last hope.

Lexie Moore, hotshot reporter, works hard to successfully juggle all the pins in her life. But when her job is threatened and her relationship starts to crumble, the pins come crashing down around her. Robin Russell, aspiring actress and sales clerk at the Holiday Hutch, is barely surviving paycheck to paycheck when a rent hike bulldozes her dreams, and she has no idea what’s next. Margot Kobeleski, widow and single mom, still sees the ghost of her late husband, even as she’s drawn to a new man in her life. If she’s living in the past, will she miss her chance at a happy future? As the women embark on their Christmas adventures, their lives intersect in ways that may end up helping them all…or making life all that more complicated.

Christmas bells are ringing, and time’s running out for these three women to find the answers they need. For when the holiday is over, any magic the Spirit of Whimsy can offer will melt away.

The Paramour Pawn
an Eleanor Shore: Fairy Godmother mystery

A spate of burglaries has rocked the town of Lark Harbor, Oregon, and the latest crime has personally touched Eleanor Shore, who, along with her husband Lawrence, owns friendly local gaming store The Game’s Afoot. Things get even more complicated when Eleanor finds out the burglaries seem to involve her friend, Dusty Howell.

Except Dusty isn’t a normal friend. For Eleanor has a rare gift, a level of insight from a mystical heritage that enables her to grant the deepest wish of those who most need her help. Pop culture would call her a fairy godmother. Her ancestors would call her a dobran. Her name doesn’t matter. What matters is that Dusty needs help now, and Eleanor may be in a unique position to give it and to end the burglaries wounding her town.

That is, until someone ends up murdered.

Then the whole game changes, the board is upended, and the players are not who they seem to be. Eleanor’s world is turned upside down, and she must right it before she becomes the killer’s next victim.

Sketches from the Café Confictura
an online serial

Café Confictura is the only business in town that survived the massive and mysterious quake in Applewood, Connecticut. The moment you walk inside the café, and the bell over the door chirps hello, it seems like you’ve entered exactly what television has taught us to expect from a coffeehouse. There’s a big front window that lets in plenty of light during the day and reflects the interior’s warm amber glow at night. There are ice cream shop tables and banquette booths and plush chairs with arms always extended for you to sink into. There’s the cast of characters who can be quirky and welcoming.

What’s different from the cozy TV shows, though, are strange happenings that seem to be fallout from that inexplicable quake, like what people who live in Applewood are calling "the rot." And the brain fog. And the accidents, injuries, and unexplained deaths. This blog chronicles what seems to be magic--supernatural encounters, rumors of mysticism, and the most spellbinding magic of all: the magic of ordinary people. Light magic . . . and dark.
