The Tutor's Ghost Stories


Only after her short life comes to a violent end, Claire Harvey's true journey begins.

When not tutoring young Max in arithmetic, sixteen-year-old Claire entertains him with haunting stories of the old house on Hollow Street. Unfortunately for him, her favorite tale hits far too close to home, and always chills him to the bone.

As the lonely decades pass, Max strives to find an end to Claire's eternal imprisonment. But after she allows her demon side to assail him in a jealous, impulsive rage, she must accept that she has now lost Max in both life as well as death. When the U.S. Department of Paranormal Affairs sends a team to exorcise her from this world, Claire must deal with them alone. The team's radical leader has an iron-clad agenda: before the break of dawn, Claire's soul will be thrust into the fiery depths of Hell, if not hurled straight to oblivion.

The popular short ghost story "The Tutor" launches this heart-wrenching adventure of betrayal, redemption, and rediscovered love.

Border Patrol



e-book and paperback

now available now on Amazon


The date of this novelette’s release, August 20th, 2017, is in honor of the 40th anniversary of Voyager 2’s launch ,on August 20th, 1977. Soar on, little bird. Soar on.


Something lies in wait at the furthest reaches of our solar system, where our sun's magnetosphere and solar wind no longer hold the deadly background cosmic radiation at bay.


Seven brave explorers on an international endeavor have followed Voyager 2's path, chasing the ancient probe far beyond the orbits of Pluto and her sister dwarf planets Eres, Haumea, and Makemake. The date is May 7th 2177. What began as an unremarkable day in the sixth year of their incessant mission becomes one the crew of Explorer Two may not live to forget.


And one that the population of the Pale Blue Dot they call home never remember.



The Tesla Project:


The Tesla Project

Parts I through IV of (TBD)


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.

Part V and beyond are in the works!
