SHORT STORIES

In addition to my novels and seemingly everything else I write, I occasionally knock out a short story. With the exception of those listed below, I make these stories free to you all right here on this site. Consider this a way of me thanking you for your continued support.

BOUNDLESS

A little more than two years before the events of Bounty, Jill Andersen makes a life-Boundless Final_Resizealtering decision. But this decision comes with consequences she didn’t foresee, and her first night as the vigilante Bounty winds up being something for which she was wholly unprepared.

A crisis of faith eventually gives way to certainty: both in terms of discovering who killed a young man named Johnny Ruiz and in terms of coping with the latest change in her own life.

Along the way, Jill defies death and discovers just how deep the city’s corruption runs. But will she survive the experience long enough to decide if a life of vigilantism is for her?
