I’ve got a massive backlist out there, but I’m focusing mostly on my indie releases now, which a lot of my readers haven’t heard of yet. So we’re going to be putting up excerpts of the indie work I’ve done—both full length and short collections, each Wednesday, to encourage you to give my new work a try.
Today’s excerpt comes from The Silver Stag.

I had recognized the daggers still in their hearts as Fae made.
When I had called in Mama J.—Angel’s mother—for help, she had read the cards and told me Light had done the deed. But if they hadn’t, the Dark would have come along sooner or later to finish the job. Mama J. was a witch woman, a tarot reader of incredible ability as well as the best damned cook in Seattle. Angel had inherited her psychic abilities from her mother. Unfortunately, Mama J. had ended up on the wrong side of a drunk driver.
“I think we should just try to fly under the radar.”
“But we can’t do that. One escaped, and he’ll find DJ’s wallet and track us down. Also, can’t the Fae call in one of the Morte Seers? If they can, you’re in danger just as much as we are.” Angel handed me a plate with two sandwiches on it. She had fixed one for herself. She knew that I had a bigger appetite than she did. We carried our plates over to the kitchen table.
“That’s why I want to get rid of the bodies, if they’re still there. If they don’t have the bodies, they can’t call on the spirits for help. It only works when the Morte Seer has a body to work with.” I paused, realizing that wouldn’t fix the problem. “I don’t know. Let’s eat and clear our heads and then think about it.”
As I bit into my sandwich, I realized I really wasn’t looking forward to going back to those woods. I had just added two more spirits to an already haunted park, and I wasn’t inclined to pay another visit to it. But I couldn’t just leave them there to be found. I wasn’t worried about the cops. Unless the Fae were nobility, they wouldn’t pay much attention. Just two more dead Cryptos. But a Morte Seer could ask questions of the dead, and even get visuals from them.
