Claire


The Tutor's Ghost Stories


A PARANORMAL NOVEL


e-book and paperback
now available now on Amazon



Claire Harvey is no ordinary sixteen-year-old. She never gets sick, she never gets hungry, and she never grows old. Little Max is the only one who knows why Claire is like she is, and he’s not telling.

When not tutoring Max in arithmetic, Claire entertains him with the minor hauntings of the old house on Hollow Street. Her favorite tale chills him to the bone, but isn’t that the whole point of a good ghost story?

As the lonely decades pass, Max strives to find an end to Claire's suffering. But the U.S. Department of Paranormal Affairs has their own agenda. It seems Max is expendable, and Claire could lose her very soul.

The popular short ghost story "The Tutor" launches these twelve haunted, heart-wrenching adventures of betrayal, redemption, and rediscovered love.

The Tesla Project:


1975


The Tesla Project Series


Part I


A SCI FI NOVELETTE


Available now in paperback and e-book via Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and other online retailers.


The classified time travel program known as The Tesla Project, launched in 1965 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or D.A.R.P.A., was designed to help America win the Vietnam Conflict. The U.S. military has its hands full reverse-engineering the technological wonders various “Travelers” have brought back from the future: microwave ovens, pagers, beta-max players, smart phones, and of course, advanced armor and weaponry. 

Sergeant First Class Mike Tyler, a.k.a. Traveler Three, has been informed his trip to 2075 could prove tricky. The camera sent before this “jump” transmitted a pitch-black world right before it was destroyed. Tyler is on a strict deadline to find answers; the portal back to 1975 will open and close again in four hours whether he’s there to step through it or not. “Just another day in the Army,” he says to himself, and enters the cavernous temporal sphere, currently charging up for his trip to 2075...

Sergeant Tyler’s convergence with History begins now.

A Ghost Story


A PARANORMAL SHORT STORY


Available now in paperback and FREE e-book via Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and other online retailers.


This is the first chapter of Claire, the original short story that kicked off the novel.

Young Max hates Fourth Grade math. His teenage friend Claire is an ace with numbers, and is always eager to help him with his homework. Max adores her, and loves when she visits him in the old house on Hollow Street.

Claire can also weave a ghost story like no one else. But her favorite tale always sends chills down his spine, and hits a little too close to home...
