Read full description of the books:
Tales of Woe and Wonder collects nine short stories. There are original fantasy stories and fairy tales as well as classic fairy tales retold. You'll find a mix of fairy tale wonder and tragic woe, ranging from a young boy's first brush with the harsh realities of war in "A Gift from over the Sea" to a miraculous bridge in "The Master and the Miller's Daughter" to a young girl's encounter with a witch's insidious spells in "Esme's Amulet." The fairy tale "Why the Squonk Weeps" tells the story of a mythical beast and a witch's plans that go horribly awry. A mother's plans to save her son from the grief of pain go horribly awry in "A Mother's Gift." "The Fletcher's Daughter" is a humorous take on Cinderella. The flash story "Under the Bridge" comments on trolls and story telling. "The Hand with the Knife" expands on the Grimm tale of the same title. And what happens when a princess resolves to take a vampire for a lover occupies "The Princess and the Vampire."
All the stories in this collection have been previously published, appearing in online magazines or print anthologies.

Thanks for visiting my page. I write software by day and speculative fiction when I should be sleeping. Dark hot chocolate fuels my evenings. My work ranges from fairy tales to fantasy to horror and ghost stories. I've been writing all my life but decided to become super serious about it and pursue publication a few years ago. My work has appeared in various anthologies and magazines. I live with my wife, children, and cats in a house with more books than bookshelf space.
My recent publications include my first novel The Black Blade: A Huckster Novel.
