New Short Story: 'Til Death

The new horror short story, 'Til Death, is available on Amazon. Fans of psychological suspense and urban fantasy will enjoy this quick read. It's about 4,000 words long and I've added a chapter of my novel, Flesheaters and Bloodsuckers Anonymous at the end. If you are looking for something with a little dark humor, this is it.


Meredith's marriage is in trouble, but that's not the biggest problem in her life. She's being plagued by a small creature. It haunts her during those long lonely hours at home and taunts her when her husband turns away. When Meredith reaches her breaking point, there's only one thing to do.

Jack stood... He walked towards her, a smoking cigar in one hand and one of the empty rattraps in the other. Meredith's lips drooped the closer he got. She saw the noticeable, purpling flesh on the hand that held the trap.

"What the hell is the meaning of this?" He held the sprung trap out to Meredith. His hand swelling and a thin red line running across the tops of his fingers.

"You should have a doctor look at that."

"It was in my cigar box, Meredith."

"Your fingers could be broken."

"Is this some sick attempt to get my attention? You've certainly got it now," he said. Jack towered over Meredith, his eyes narrowed.
