Saturday Sneak Peeks: The Redemption Games – A #YA #SciFi #Thriller

Designed by Kathryn Jenkins at Magical Designs

I released my newest short story this week, so I wanted to give you a sneak peek:

There was no sound. Jillian was sure she outran them this time. She was smart though. Too smart to move this early and give up her location. The last time she did that, they nearly got her. She crouched in the shadows of a dumpster and waited. About twenty minutes passed before she dared to move, and even then it was only to move further into the alley where she could eat in peace.

“All this for a box of cereal,” Jillian whispered to herself. She squeezed through the small opening in the boarded up doorway of the abandoned building she called home. After climbing to the second floor, she barricaded herself in a small room that she was sure had once been an office. Probably where the boss sat in his cushy chair while the people worked their butts off in the sweat shop below.

After opening the box, she shoved handful after handful of cereal into her mouth until she couldn’t swallow another bite. Leaning back she sighed. It had been days since she had a full belly.

Jillian didn’t realize she had started dozing until a noise woke her. She wasn’t alone in the building. She heard the soft clang of boots on the metal stairway. She was trapped. She hid behind some boxes and old furniture that had been left behind just in time for someone to force their way through her barricade. She froze. For a moment there was no sound.

“I know you’re here,” a male’s voice called out.

Jillian doesn’t think things can get any worse. She ran away from home and has survived on the streets for over a year, but when a man shows up promising her a better future, she ignores her instincts and goes with him. Now she finds herself on an alien world in a last-man-standing competition that she has no hope of winning, unless she can find an ally. More info →

Saturday Sneak Peeks: The Dream Crypt (An Onyx Warrior Short Story)

Designed by Kathryn Jenkins at Magical Designs

It’s time for another sneak peek, and in celebration of its release this week, I thought I’d give you another peek at The Dream Crypt. If you missed the first sneak peek of this story, you can find it here!


Rylee picked up her phone and dialed.

“911. What is your emergency,” an eerily familiar male voice said.

“I’m bleeding really badly, and I can’t make it stop.”

“Just go to sleep Rylee. You’ll be fine in the morning.”

Rylee hung up feeling calmer. He was right. She was overreacting. It was a long strange day. She just needed some sleep. Her pillow was a welcome sight, and after resting her head, she closed her eyes and began dozing. Then she quickly sat up.

She never told the man her name.


Thanks for reading and don’t forget…The Dream Crypt is now available:

Saturday Sneak Peek: Shadow Stalker Episode 18

It’s been a while since I’ve done a sneak peek. Things have been a bit hectic around here, but I’m hoping after our move it will settle down. *Crossing My Fingers*

This week I have a little snippet from Shadow Stalker Episode 18, which hasn’t been edited yet, so I’m hoping it reads okay (I have double checked it, but I’m so preoccupied with the move, I’m sure I’ve missed something). Hope you enjoy it!


“I’m so sorry you’ve had to endure this, Jade. After I heard you’d been captured, I tried to rescue you, but I failed…obviously. Deakan was supposed—”

At the mention of his name, Jade’s head whipped around. She searched the room frantically, whispering his name. Then her gaze fell on mine and recognition lit her eyes. “Auren?”

“Yes, it’s me,” I said, tears spilling as I hugged my friend.

Jade pulled away. “Is this real?”

I stroked the side of her face. “It is, Jade. It’s real.”

“I’ve dreamed about you…and Deakan, but I always woke, and you were gone.”

“I’m so sorry, Jade, but I’m not going away this time.”

Jades eyes glazed over and she whispered, “Don’t cry. It will be over soon.”

“Jade?” I tried turned her face towards mine, but she was gone. “Jade.”

Makari rested his hand on my shoulder. “Remember Auren, you’ll have to be patient with her. Just talk to her and let her come to you.”
