Pulp Thrillers

Ash Park, a run-down suburb of Detroit, might not be the most idyllic place to live, but for Hannah Montgomery, it’s safe. At least, it feels that way until a serial killer starts dicing up women from the shelter where she volunteers.

Hannah manages to convince herself the killings have nothing to do with her brutal past—but then her boyfriend is murdered in the same ruthless manner as the others. And the police think she may have had something to do with it.

The cops are right about one thing: Hannah is responsible. Because she knows who the killer is. Now she must face the fact that she brought a monster with her to Ash Park—and his appetite for blood is insatiable.

Cozy Mystery

Down on her luck witch Althea “Ali” Everwood has big plans for her life in Mt. Rheanier, a sleepy mountain town in the paranormal world. It might be because her foot practically lives in her mouth, or because her habit of running headlong into every situation is better suited to a bull on steroids than a witch, but Ali just never manages to catch a break.

Her luck goes from bad to worse when she stumbles across the body of a murdered dragon shifter and then gets fired from her dead-end job in less than twenty-four hours. And things get even hairier when the family of her slain friend offers a reward. Every paranormal in town comes out of the woodwork to make some cash, including her eclectic seventy-something grandmother who isn’t afraid to hex anyone who gets in her way – even her granddaughter. But all Ali wants is justice and she will stop at nothing to find the person responsible.

Ghost Mysteries
Newly recruited Scotland Yard detective Gabriel Syme infiltrates a dangerous underworld anarchist group with the help of a poet he befriends, named Lucian Gregory. The taut adventure that ensues is part spy narrative, part dystopian novel and part Christian allegory. Chesterton’s unconventional masterpiece has been described as “”one of the hidden hinges of twentieth-century writing, the place where, before our eyes, the nonsense-fantastical tradition of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear pivots and becomes the nightmare-fantastical tradition of Kafka and Borges.””
