new directions in young adult sci-fi and fantasy
Buddy--a German Shepherd--and Sally--a Beagle/Basset Hound mix--are the beloved pets of Rob and Gennifer Bennett and their young daughter Audrey. Their home is Kent Island, MD: a beautiful, peaceful place, good for raising a family, good for having dogs.
When unearthly beings strike without warning or mercy against humankind, Buddy and Sally lose the ones they love, and lose the lives they knew. Now they must band together with other "lost dogs" to find food, water, and shelter in a world that was not made for them.
But survival is not enough for Buddy: he holds out hope that Rob and Genn and Audrey live. And that he can find them before inhuman forces ensure that people are never again Earth's masters.

If you want something new and different; if you're done with the cliches and tired tropes; if you're sick of the retreads and the ripoffs and the "trendy"...
...then you've come to the right place.
I write young adult science-fiction/fantasy with characters you can care about and worlds you will get lost in. I tell tales that keep you turning pages, fill you with wonder, and make you think.
Demand better. Get more. Take a new direction.
