Quick description of it (no spoilers)


Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for the beginning of the end.

Carnie. Ride jockey. Roustabout. White trash. Tilt girl. Gypsy. Cricket has been called a lot of things, but she never thought survivor of the zombie apocalypse would be one of them. One day she’s barking on the midway, and the next day, the world is eating itself alive.

Cricket, along with Vella, a tarot reader, and Puck, Cricket’s mangy mutt, find themselves running for their lives, but where can you hide when mankind has fallen? Cricket will need help if she hopes to survive.

Luckily for her, we were never really alone, and apparently, magical forces want to keep this tilt girl alive.

Join Cricket in this unique zombie apocalypse series. It’s all fun and games until someone ends up undead!


The Shadow Aspect:

When Layla took the final step through the labyrinth, she thought she was saving the ones she loved.

She couldn’t have been more wrong.

Layla and the other survivors now find themselves caught in a war for our world, the unwitting victims of a grudge seething for eons. Surviving the zombie apocalypse has become the least of their worries as they come up against vampires, shapeshifters, and fae. When she uncovers an unspeakable horror, whom can Layla trust? The carnie girl? The doctor searching for a cure? The tarot reader? The stranger with alluring gold eyes? Or the man she loves?

The wrong choice could doom them all.

When the world burns, mankind’s shadow side rises. Do we deserve to survive?

Continue this award-winning zombie/dark fantasy genre mash-up series in Book 2, The Shadow Aspect.

Something unique about it.

The Harvesting Series isn’t just about zombies. The zombie apocalypse kicks off a chain of events that slowly reveals the true make-up of our world. My zombie series is a dark fantasy mashup. You will find other supernatural creatures and folklore elements in the book. Think of it as a modern day Lord of the Rings.

The Shadow Aspect is Book II of my Harvesting Series. In this book, Layla and her group are fighting to survive in a crumbling world.

Midway: A Harvesting Series Novella is a 1.5 in The Harvesting Series. It can be read either before or after The Harvesting, Book I in this series. The novella features Cricket, a carnie girl, and Vella, the resident Tarot reader. Cricket and Vella, who are really Mulder and Scully types, find themselves on the run at the beginning of the end of days. I played a lot with Tarot symbolism in this novella, pulling in some of the other supernatural elements in this series.
