Published Work

Here is my complete listing of published novels. Why not pick up a new story?

In America’s heartland, a small farm lies nestled atop a hill, guarded by the dense surrounding forest. The sun rises, and the animals wake; the sun sets, and the animals sleep.
But things are changing. Something has taken up residence in the deep ravine behind the barn. No one has seen it, but they’ve all heard its cries echoing in the night: a long, mournful howl. And some of the animals have started acting erratic, even violent.
At the center of the change is Brad, the small rooster. New to the chicken coop and more comfortable with humans than with his own kind, Brad struggles to adjust to this strange, structured life. Everything has its place, and all is watched over by the Great Yolk in the sky. Everything, that is, except for Brad, who discovers that he not only doesn’t belong, but is also unwelcome. But then unlikely friendships blossom around the farm. As Brad’s relationships with his new friends bloom, power-plays and jealousies arise to threaten all that he’s accomplished.
All the while, the festering menace in the ravine watches, biding its time, waiting for the right moment to reveal that the animals’ true struggle is against evil itself, and it may be a fight that is impossible for them to win.
Inspired by a true story, Home to Roost is touching and beautiful, with a dark twist lurking at its center; a powerful debut novel.
