The Tutor's Ghost Stories
A YOUNG ADULT NOVEL
Claire Harvey is no ordinary 16-year-old. Her past holds a terrifying secret only young Max fully believes. When not tutoring him in mathematics, Claire entertains Max by weaving the minor hauntings of the old, Gothic house on Hollow Street into tales that chill him to the bone. Claire is convinced the boy could someday find the quantum key to crossing over to the Other Side, but right now he can barely get through an assignment without the help of his tutor.
As the lonely decades pass, Max and Claire make it their mission to learn everything they can about the paranormal world. Max's goal in life is to set every ghost free from its haunt, where no soul truly desires to remain. But the U.S. Department of Paranormal Affairs and its demon-hunting mechanical spiders have a mission of their own. If they step foot into a haunted house, a ghost's choices are clear: Hell or Oblivion. And to the leader of the ghost hunters assigned to clear Max's childhood home, he himself becomes expendable, and Claire may lose her very soul.
The popular short ghost story "The Tutor" launches these twelve haunted, heart-wrenching adventures of betrayal, redemption, and rediscovered love.

Tempest McQuillan, femme fatale, is caught in the middle of high-stakes intrigue and deception against the Capital Lunar Energy Corporation, CaLunE, whose Director runs the grand 19th Century city of Velia with an iron fist. Or so it would appear. Her husband Phineas is oblivious to her secret agent lifestyle and is planning a little amateur homemade terrorism of his own to "rightfully" bring down CaLunE. In a few short hours, their beautiful industrial-era city will be a crater the size of ancient Paris--more a legend now than a real city that once existed on a distant Earth--when an unstoppable asteroid impacts Barylock Bay. With the two of them right at ground zero at the moment of impact, it will be a very bad day for Tempest and Phineas. But then, as far as Phineas' boss is concerned, their kind wasn't ever meant to inherit the planet anyway...
Just a crappy working cover.
Planned publishing date: TBD.
Just a simple, working cover, designed by me. We'll see if it sticks.
These stories were started as Hopefully-Someday-To-Be-Episodes to
be submitted to Double Secret Productions and MGM Television for
their consideration for the small screen.
But now that SG-1, Atlantis and now Stargate Universe have all gone the way of every good sci-fi show on TV these days (cancelled or ended), the best I could hope for at this point is a feature-length movie. Even the publisher of the Stargate novels is not accepting manuscripts unless you're already an accomplished author, so I guess I know what I need to do. So for now these stories will simply remain here on my website in limbo for fellow fans to enjoy!
STARGATE: UNIVERSE SEASON 3!
8 episodes in screenplay format by the talented Laurence Moroney. :)
Answers the television series finale's cliffhanger! Fans will NOT be disappointed!
Mr. Moroney, I know you said you don't prefer fans to do this sort of thing, but I thought it was the lesser of the evils, what with your site down! I know you want these terrific stories to reach as many people as possible to further fans' desires to bring the show back someday. :)
A shameless plug for my online comic, EvilOrg.
Stop by and share the giggles and the saving of the puppies if you have a few minutes. :)
