AMONG THESE BONES
Book 1 - Among These Bones

A post-apocalyptic novel 

We almost died. All of us. The entire human race. And now we live in a world of darkness and high stakes.

Alison and her son Arie survived a global pandemic along with a remnant of humanity, but the annual cure that keeps them alive also steals their memories. The harsh rule of a shadowy governing organization known as The Agency is grim enough, but Alison's world is torn apart when Arie goes missing. Alison joins a team of resistance fighters to uncover the truth, but if she can't find Arie before she has to take the serum again, she won't remember she even has a son.

CREEP FACTOR
Book 1

A collection of short horror stories 

It’s the feeling that something isn’t quite right. The glance of a stranger that lingers too long. A coworker who appears out of nowhere. Creep Factor is thirteen deeply creepy short horror stories that explore the awkward, unnerving, and the terrifying. From backstabbing roommates to vicious pets, from murderous spirits to soul-wracking nightmares, Creep Factor covers the savagely weird to the merely ghastly.

WHEN IT'S NO LONGER NIGHT
Book 2 - Among These Bones

In the second book of the Among These Bones series, Alison is a member of the Lotus project, an elite, utopian experiment supposedly comprising society's smartest and most orderly citizens. She has lost her memories, but when a friend from her rebellious past reminds Alison that she has a son, Arie, she is again overcome with the desire to be with him. Allison tells herself that if she can be reunited with Arie, her life in Lotus will be complete. But as the perfect order of Lotus begins to crumble and the Agency fights to remain in power, Alison must find a way not only to reach her son, but also to stand against oppression—even as the city burns.

IT CAME FROM THE GREAT SALT LAKE

ISBN-10: 0997197099

The Great Salt Lake is a remnant of an ancient lake that was almost as long as the State of Utah. What mysteries does it hold in its briny waters? What secrets lurk in its murky shores? 

A malevolent spirit haunts a pregnant woman, luring her ever closer to the salty depths, yet what it wants is much more horrifying than death. The inversion and smog in the Salt Lake Valley carries more than just bad air. A young girl hears voices in her head, voices that keep her company. But there’s something else in the void of her psyche, something that’s growing stronger, something that wants out.

Whether its mystery, apparitions, ancient curses, or a modern day apocalypse, one thing holds all these tales together: The Great Salt Lake. Nestled inside the second anthology of Utah horror, are tales intended to delight a wide range of readers, everything from traditional horror, to romance, comedy and young adult.
