An enticing mix of Shakespeare and Tolkien, written for a third millennial audience. Exciting, mysterious, humorous. Lore of the Underlings moves along at a lyrical pace, deftly balancing dry wit and creepiness. Can’t wait to read more!

Until we meet again Mary…

Hi sci-fi/fantasy-fiction fans! I’m pleased as punch to announce my latest tale from the world of Lore — a short-story ebook called Kid of Lore.

Hope you enjoy it! Here’s a synopsis:

Johnny’s your typical tween-age insomniac who’s never slept a wink in his life. But when a kids’ prank turns into an epic fail, the nightmare really begins. It’s literally all downhill from there, as Johnny Cap falls for a shadowy girl and into the clutches of someone stranger. Meanwhile, his world slips under a spell of lore. And evil looms. No kidding…

Kid of Lore is for kids of all ages. Short and sweet. Epic. Spooky. Fun.

It’s also a prequel to Lore of the Underlings, an epic poetry series from the mythical lands of Lore. Lore of the Underlings is a bittersweet saga of gold and shadow told in classic style — with old-world words but new-world wit. Fun for fans of puns and lyrical tongues!
