Reclaimer’s Revenge on The Blue Planet
Based on the feedback from my short story, Upgrade Cave, and my personal enjoyment of writing Océane and Nerine’s adventure, I’m working on a novella version. The project is in early development as I’m focusing on other stories that take place first in my universe, but you can read a few chapters from the book, which basically include the short stories, Upgrade Cave and Temple Guardian.
Unbound Dilemmas is an urban fantasy adventure following a librarian as she works in a library where characters come unbound from their books.

Liven up your night with murder! In this murder mystery game, guests take the roles of various cast and crew members celebrating the completion of filming of their movie when the director suddenly dies at the party. However, the paranoid Director hid magical clues revealing hints as to who committed the crime. The scavenger hunt, couples’ rules, and the randomization for the murderer bring unique features to the standard murder mystery game.
Uncovering Oklahoma’s Date Idea Book Series
Uncovering Oklahoma’s Date Idea Book book was written with all types of couples and dates in mind to show that there is something fun out there for everyone and to help expand the concept of date night beyond the standard “dinner and a movie.” The book series has been discontinued in favor of other projects. The book series had featured various suggestions for a night (or afternoon) out in different parts of Oklahoma, along with pictures and quotes from people about why they think a particular place makes for a great date spot.
