To the Victor: Tales of Magic and Adventure

To the Victor final cover 12-18, 4 inches high

Can a feral refrigerator find a reason to exist? A once-proud center of a family’s kitchen now sits beneath an underpass, abandoned and biding its time.

And can a dragon–bent on domination beyond his wildest dreams—turn aside from power for the sake of love?

And is the platypus bound by the constraints of time and space like everyone else?

These tales included and more–so dive in and discover characters and settings both familiar and strange. And when you’re done, don’t forget to leave pizza and beer out for the jobsite elves.


As you can see, I’ve got a new short story collection out, and I’m really proud of this one, including the cover, which I painted. So if you’re in the mood for some quick story snippets, why not check these out?

Lots of great reviews on goodreads:

And for those of you who like to know the stories behind the stories, this post will fill you in on where I got my ideas. Everything from being incredibly bored during jury duty to an homage to an old friend and an unexpected delay in a truck stop–it’s all here.
