Novellas are stories in the 25k-50k word range. Too long to be called “short” and just a bit too short to be considered full novels, they exist in a sort of no man’s land. I’ve written several of them in my life. In fact, The Blood That Bonds started its life as a novella, back when I was nineteen years old.
The two works below were both run, a page at a time, on my old website. Each page was written at most a few days in advance of posting it, so both stories are a bit rough (neither have undergone any editing, either). Nonetheless, I’ve received a lot of positive feedback on both, and so I’ve continued to make them available.

- Voices – The story of a group of young adults living in New York, each blessed with an extraordinary power, and how they come together in an attempt to “do the right thing” with their talents.
- Persephone’s Fall – A modern retelling of the Greek myth, the story features Persephone, Hades, Zeus and Demeter, but takes place in modern Manhattan. I originally created illustrations for each update, and may some day hire someone with more talent in that department to re-work them.
