April 2, 2014

Update!

March 14, 2014

Silo Short Story

October 7, 2013

“Lost Water” —————– “Carlyle.” A mutter. “You’ve got to wake up, Carlyle.” He tried to turn toward her, but his forehead just ground against the hard floor.

The Watcher (A Silo Story)

September 3, 2013

This journey has come to an end. What began as a writing exercise (The Runner) has turned into a mini-bestseller, moving over 12,000 copies since January.
