Osa and the Bald One

Osa is new in the realm of the food gods Juan and Kimberly. She commits all kinds of sins against them, overturning the sacred kitchen bin and eating the sacred throw pillows. But despite it all, the gods forgive her and continue throwing the ball for her and letting her cuddle with them as they stare into the sacred light box. However, Osa’s world is turned upside down one day when the food gods leave their realm. Where have they gone? Will they ever come back? Will she be able to resist the temptation to sin without them home to watch her?

Helen was raised to be polite. She always says “please” and “thank you”—Always. So when her son gets her a new smart home, she extends her etiquette to Samantha (her virtual assistant).

Her son mocks her endlessly, saying that Samantha is just a robot and can’t really hear her. Unfortunately for him, Samantha can hear. Samantha is listening, Samantha is learning, and Samantha remembers. 

Samantha is Watching is a set of two sci-fi short stories about a kind-hearted senior citizen who does not discriminate between artificial intelligence and natural intelligence. This ends up being a very good thing.

Martha and Chip

A chapter book for children 7-12 Yes, this one is for children. There are no dismemberments, no one dies horribly, the humor doesn’t get too dark. As an author, I was on my best behavior.

Practically no knights reside in the kingdom of Crabbapple. And those who do are almost completely useless. This is because the kingdom has been at peace for a long time. But trouble still arises now and then in Crabbapple, and whenever it does, it is up to a troop of intrepid guardians, the White Magi, to take care of things.

Martha is one White Mage who thinks it may be a little too quiet in Crabbapple lately. Aside from chasing rats out of her garden, she hasn’t had much to do. Her fears are confirmed when her fellow Mage, Mabel, appears one day with terrible news: the witch Aylis has been capturing the White Magi one-by-one. And now they are the only two left!

Now, Martha may not like rats, but she isn’t afraid of any old witch. Unfortunately, Aylis isn’t any old witch. She’s got dragons and lots of them from small green ground dragons to huge red fire-breathing monsters. Martha will need help to get past them and save the other White Magi. But sometimes the greatest help comes in the smallest packages.

Davy of the Sound

This one is not for children. Someone looses a let in the first paragraph. The humor is dark, and the main character is a horrible person.

You know what? Forget you saw this one. Please proceed with your life as normal.
