The Adventures of Blue Shaefer Book 1
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy/Urban Fantasy

Synopsis: Punk, blue-haired “Blue” Shaefer, is at odds with her workaholic single mother. Raised as a city girl in a suburb of Indianapolis, Blue must abandon the life she knows when her unfeeling mother moves them to a dreadful small town. Blue befriends the only student willing to talk to her: computer nerd “Chip” Farren.

Chip knows the connection between the rickety pirate boat ride at the local amusement park and the missing money from an infamous bank heist the townspeople still talk about. When Blue helps him recover the treasure, they awaken a vengeful ghost who’ll stop at nothing–not even murder–to prevent them from exposing the truth behind his evil deeds.

Virtual Blue
The Adventures of Blue Shaefer Book 2
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy/Urban Fantasy

Synopsis: Did you ever wish you could escape to a virtual world? What if you could…but then couldn’t get out?

Two years after her deadly clash with a vengeful ghost, Fiona “Blue” Shaefer still can’t shake off the trauma of that night. Moving to New York with her father didn’t help. Neither did absorbing herself in her college classes. Not even her poetry provided the solace it once did. She convinces herself that ending her relationship with Eugene “Chip” Farren, her long-distance boyfriend and final tie to the horrors of that night, might bring the closure she needs. Blue travels to Bloomington to break the news to Chip in person, but her timing couldn’t be any worse.

The Sisters of Baalina, vengeful cultists who practice a new form of “techno-magic,” have targeted Chip’s multi-player videogame as the perfect environment to cast a dangerous spell to free a demoness from the very pits of hell. In the process, their plan may trap Blue in a prison of the mind with no locks, no bars, and no escape.

Red Lotus: Innocence Lost
A Red Lotus Story #2
Genre: Science Fiction/Space Opera

Synopsis: Commander Sayuri Arai has what she’s always wanted…at least, that’s what she keeps telling herself to fend off despair. In just the last few days, she’s purchased the antiquated Independent Mining Ship Red Lotus, invested in major repairs and upgrades, and taken on the role of its co-commander alongside trusted right hand man Dravin Sow.

Now, Sayuri finds herself at wit’s end. Her veteran crew of “Spacers” seems to take pleasure in citing her inexperience and odd “Grounder” ways while they correct, contradict, or dismiss her every order. Even Sayuri’s attempts to socialize with her new subordinates are rebuffed. But when space pirates attack and board the vessel, Sayuri and her crew must learn to work together if they’re going to survive.

Red Lotus: Innocence Lost is the second of a series of science fiction novelettes that began with Fate of the Red Lotus–re-igniting a classic sense of wonder for today’s readers.
