Foul Is Fair

Urban Fantasy
First in a four book series, Foul Is Fair launches the complete Fair Folk series.

This book and series are available in Kindle Unlimited.

Lots of girls play Fairy Princess when they’re little. Megan O’Reilly had no idea the real thing was like playing chess, guitar, and hockey all at once. Megan had known for a long time that she wasn’t an entirely typical girl. But living with ADHD—and her mother’s obsessions—was a very different thing from finding out she wasn’t entirely human. Somewhere out there, in a completely different world, her father needs help.

There’s a conflict, revolving around Faerie seasonal rituals, that could have consequences for humanity—and if Megan’s getting the terminology straight, it sounds like her family aren’t even supposed to be the good guys. As she’s further and further swept up in trying to save her father, Megan may be getting too good at not being human.

Sophia “Soap” Lazarcheck is a girl genius with a knack for making robots—and for making robots explode. After her talents earn her admission into a secretive university institute, she is swiftly drawn into a conspiracy more than a century in the making. Meanwhile and without her knowledge, her cousin Dean wages a two-fisted war of vengeance against a villainous genius and his unwashed minions. Separately, the cousins must pit themselves against murderous thugs, experimental weaponry, lizard monsters, and a nefarious doomsday device. When their paths finally meet up, they will need to risk everything to prevent a mysterious technology from bringing civilization to a sudden and very messy end.

Her only allies are Chaff, the cat, and Ash, the son of the only murder suspect, who offers her enough money to finally get off the streets if she’ll help him find the real killer.
What starts as a simple search ultimately reveals a conspiracy stretching across the entire city. And as Maeko and Chaff discover feelings for each other neither was prepared to admit, she’s forced to choose whether she’ll stay with him or finally escape the life of a street rat. But with danger closing in around them, the only way any of them will get out of this alive is if all of them work together.


Urban Fantasy
You’re Not a Real Goth Until You Sack Rome is the start of a new series in the same world as the Fair Folk Chronicles, set 20 years earlier, in the 1990s.

Death was supposed to be an aesthetic, not a plan for the weekend.

Rae Schwarz spends her lunches at the goth table, her evenings with eccentric loved ones, and her daydreams with poetic inspirations. But family secrets have a way of getting out, no matter how long one is sheltered.

Some of the things brought to light are a little too bright for Rae’s taste, and some have a darkness and a danger she can fall into all too easily.


Unchosen is a standalone novel available on Kindle Unlimited.

What happens when the Chosen One dies in Chapter 1?

For countless years, the people of the four towers that stand between this realm and the Otherrealm have waited for this day. The prophecied moment has come — and it’s about to go horribly wrong.

When tragedy strikes, four companions must race against time — and victorious evil forces — without a hero to carry their hopes.

Even obviously doomed worlds are still worth fighting for.

Light Cyberpunk

Mina Cortez from Bouquets to Bullets is a YA sci-fi adventure-mystery.

She’d never said, “I want to join the secret police when I grow up.”

Of course, Mina Cortez hadn’t known there were secret police. She just knew she’d rather be a ballerina than a florist. But in 2154, though the world has mostly recovered from the supervolcano, vocational education is still programmed based on aptitude testing. An implanted skill chip can give the recipient many things, but not longer legs, so Mina fully expected to end up inheriting her family’s flower shop and landscaping business someday.

Like three generations before her, she had the nose for it.

She didn’t expect one of her best friends to be kidnapped. She didn’t expect to be inducted into a covert organization by desperate authorities. She didn’t expect to have to be grateful for her other best friend’s ‘undead’ Chevy. She didn’t expect programmed spy information to come with the taste of aluminum on her tongue – or a burning sensation when she fought its impulses. She didn’t expect fights, car chases, family secrets, bureaucrats acting as espionage cheerleaders, electro-magnetic pulses, or the frequent scent of gun oil.

She definitely didn’t expect to still have to deliver flowers while figuring it all out.

This is the 2nd Edition of Mina Cortez From Bouquets to Bullets.
