Fall into Fantasy 2019 Anthology
I’m thrilled to announce that this fantasy love and horror story is available on Amazon now!
Here’s what you can expect from my short story “The Demon in the Mask:”
Andre Paul LeClair was an orphan, an infant found on the steps of a monastery. Raised in the midst of Priests and Nuns, he grew to be an intelligent, charming boy, and then a handsome, bewitching man. Coming to the attention of a sinister Cardinal, LeClair was whisked away to remote mountain Chateau. Trained for a decade by soldiers, spies, and courtesans, he was honed to be the perfect instrument of assassination. His target, the secret ruler of the Kingdom, the Princess and witch Katia Asa Vajda. But when the moment came to liberate a nation, would he kill the princess, or fall in love with her?
The Toilet Zone
My short story “Retired” can be found in the Hellbound Books horror anthology The Toilet Zone. In this case, the title refers to the average amount of time a person sits on the “facility” while reading something.
87-year-old Leslie McLean woke up in the hospital screaming. Her son Dan reassured her that the experimental surgery to reverse her dementia was successful. She would regain her memories, her ability to think and feel like a younger, competent person again. As time passed, her memories did return, but there was something else. Who was the donor of the brain material used to augment her own, and why did Leslie start to have horrific memories of killing and eating human beings? Why did those memories make her feel so good and so…hungry?
