THE NATE TEMPLE SERIES - The birth of the TempleVerse...

Nate Temple rides a foul-mouthed, homicidal unicorn, drinks with Achilles, and is pals with the Four Horsemen. He's even cow-tipped the Minotaur. One time.


A psychotic ginger vampire. A demonic rooster horse. The Brothers Grimm have broken free from their prison, and are thirsty for blood. This wizard learns that buying books can be deadly, and that his childhood Fairy Tales were not just stories, but dire warnings…

A city that doesn’t believe in magic. A weredragon invasion. Good thing this reckless playboy is a wizard… It’s been said that monsters cry when a good man goes to war. But they should run screaming like terrified school girls when that man is a wizard, and not necessarily good…


A Wizard, an Angel, and a Horseman of the Apocalypse walk into a bar… The ancient pact between Mankind, Heaven, and Hell has been broken, and this upstart wizard’s quest for vengeance may have just kicked off Armageddon… So, time for a drink then. Maybe two…

GRIMM - #3

Assassination contracts have a way of putting engagement plans on hold. Perhaps permanently, because the bloodthirsty Brothers Grimm take their work seriously, and it’s hard to have a wedding without a groom. No wonder guys are terrified of proposing…


Nate never thought he’d find himself at a crossroads, a pawn in a deadly game that he hadn’t known existed, willing to sell his soul to save the life of someone he loved… That’s when he learned true fear, because the world he thought he knew was all just smoke and mirrors…


What do you do for Thanksgiving Dinner when your guests are Death, an Angel, and a slew of other monsters? You have a nerf gun war, of course… But the Queens of Fae want to crash his party. And the Beast Master is abducting shifter children for a Monster Circus.


With Achilles angry at Nate for crashing his Fight Night, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse breathing down his neck, and an accidental shifter infection with a cheerful Swedish male dancer, Nate already has his hands full. Then his enemies try to wake up a God…


Nate and Alucard are tasked with watching over the Reds – teenaged weredragons – for the weekend. But when love is in the air, there is no rule a teenager wouldn’t break. And there’s no law a dad wouldn’t break to get them back safely. Even if it involves chasing after them to Kansas City and into a Johnson Beaver concert where they encounter a magical djinn, and a herd of bloodthirsty centaurs.


With a Greek God breathing down his neck, Nate needs to get in touch with that savage, more primitive version of himself – by visiting the land of the Fae. Because some mornings it’s easier to drink your coffee, have a light breakfast, and just accept the fact that today’s the day you kill a god…


Two old dudes want to kill me, and one of them is my ancestor. Now, I’ve taken down a Greek God, work a Horseman’s Mask, and I ride a homicidal unicorn, so you would think this is just a walk in the park. But when I find out my whole childhood has been a lie and that my birth might have been the coin toss for the Apocalypse Olympics… shit goes downhill fast…


With the supernatural families of St. Louis at one another’s throats, Nate takes two of his scariest friends on a walk down that famous path paved with good intentions – to those eternal pits of despair – so he can finally demand some real answers from his parents. He definitely never thought his actions could make Hell any worse than it already was…


Nate’s going to need to beg, borrow, and steal every scrap of power he can find to stand a snowball’s chance in hell against Mordred and what the notorious traitor has in store for St. Louis.

Because Mordred has been planning this moment his entire afterlife, from that dark empty cell in Hell, and will stop at nothing to get his father’s old heirlooms back. A certain Round Table and a sword. Only then can his master plan truly begin…

The world needs a Fifth Horseman. Whether they want it or not… Whether they can survive it or not…

Legend - #11

Some stories are safer left untold…too bad the storytellers can’t help but whisper them over campfires when they think they’re safe with friends. Because all manner of things listen over dancing flames…

FEATHERS AND FIRE - A Temple Verse Series

Callie Penrose hunts monsters for the Vatican. They say she's been kissed by Heaven - whatever the Hell that means...



Callie Penrose works for the Vatican, but isn’t a churchy kind of gal. But when demons, Nephilim, shifter bears and Nate Temple come to town searching for the Spear that stabbed Jesus on the cross, Callie is forced to accept some of these truths. But before it all pans out, will she be Heaven’s Devil or Hell’s Angel?

RAGE - #2

Callie Penrose is kissed by Heaven – whatever the Hell that means… A new church has opened up in Kansas City, and Freaks are being killed all around town with the phrase God is Dead… written beside the bodies. Can she catch the killer before the Salem Witch Trials comes back?


Callie Penrose is headed to the Vatican to meet the priests. But there’s been a murder, and she soon learns that the only way to fix the Vatican is to break them entirely. And the Whispers she’s hearing have absolutely no problem with that plan…


Callie returns home to Kansas City to find new gangs of supernaturals roving the streets, preying on the innocent while the local factions do nothing. Although not unified, everyone seems to agree on one point… Callie Penrose must die.


Callie Penrose is struggling to find her special purpose in life. Rather than allying with any of the powerful supernatural groups begging to sign her up—the Vatican, the vampires, the shifters, or the Armies of both Heaven and Hell—Callie has been picking fights with all of them.


What good is a man when he’s lost his soul?
