Pizza Boy and the Super Squad
(coming Nov 17, 2020!)​

Take A Slice Out Of Crime

An adorable photo of two babies born on the same day with the initials PB&J puts the small town of Surly, Idaho on the map. Fourteen and years later, in "the town that brought PB&J together", something unimaginable is about to happen: one really messy breakup.

Join Little Cheezers Pizza Boy "PB" Peter Barnes and Jaylee "J" Yates, the cutest drive-up window Arabian princess cashier in the history of Sheik-Fil-A, for the wildest food fight in rural America. With Peter looking for a bit of independence, and J looking for some serious payback on Peter for dumping her, it is the perfect chance for work-from-home criminal mastermind Soccer Mom to finally make her move. With the PTA presidency in her sights, Soccer Mom pits J against PB as the town of Surly descends into condiment chaos with a slur of crazy car chases, mysterious food poisonings and epic dance fights.


To stop the mayhem, school guidance counselor Guy "GuyCo" Jennings puts together a team of misfit kids with extraordinary abilities. But even the Surly High Super Squad may not be enough to stop Soccer Mom and her mischievous midget-sized minions.


Can PB and J come together to finally put an end to Soccer Mom's reign of toddler terror before Surly falls into her nefarious control?

Kayna's Orb
(YA Fantasy; open for beta readers)


Thousands of years before our civilization Kayna travels to The Colony, the last bastion for left-brained Fairinen mystics and right-brained Reinen rune mages in a society threatened by the rise of technology.


Magic or love: which would you have?

Kayna Mender is Jairen--one of the joined, potentially inheriting fairy-hatching magic from her Faririnar mother and alchemical prowess from her Reinar father, although she may be the last of her line to have any magic. Emotionally unstable, incurably curious, and uncertain of whether she'll have useful magical abilities, Kayna leaves the south continent where the Jairen government is restricting the practice of magic and travels to The Colony for an apprenticeship, and a chance to rekindle a childhood friendship with Lorrin, a Reinar wind mage. But the north continent is home to the Ha'druid and their demonic technology.


Kayna's world, and ours, is about to change.
