About the author

I was born in Germany and emigrated to the United States. Since then, I’ve spent most of my life orbiting20160203_173430 around Indianapolis, where I can be often found gazing longingly at abandoned buildings.

If you’re in the Indy writing scene, you may have run into me already. If you’re in the indie writing scene, I’m also available as a freelance manuscript editor and general nerd.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

Available Now
Rosario Hernandez doesn’t ask for much. She’d like to sleep on a bed instead of a sidewalk, to know where her next meal is coming from, and maybe, if she’s really feeling optimistic, to get a girlfriend. More than anything, though, she wants her best friend Arkay to not murder anyone— because Arkay is a dragon, claws and all, and she has a penchant for vigilante justice.

When Arkay’s latest escapade goes sour, Rosario gets stuck with a stolen van and a cooler full of human organs. Now they’re on the run, and it’s not just the cops who want answers. The owner of the cooler is still out there, and they want to replace what they’ve lost— by any means necessary.

But evil lurks in every shadow, and they soon discover that they’re not the only ones hunting the beast.
