Stuff of Nightmares

(BOOM!, 2022)

(BOOM!, 2022)

What happens when one woman becomes the real monster society has always made her out to be? Dragged by her sister Wendy to a feminist retreat on a remote island of Antgitia, Marion Angela Weber is seeking perspective and empowerment, but a disastrous first night leaves her frightfully changed. In the aftermath of an assault, Marion begins to transform as an unspeakable hunger crawls through her body. When the townsfolk recognize there's something different about Marion, they react with suspicion, then violence, while ignoring the monsters already among them.

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Tricksters, “Loki the Matchmaker”

(Archaia, 2021)

Can the Norse trickster god, Loki, get the legendary god of thunder, Thor, to embrace his feminine side? When Thor’s hammer ends up in the possession of the King of the Giants, only his clever brother will be able to aid him in retrieving it, but only if Thor can use his brains rather than his brawn.

Full-Spectrum Therapy

(webcomic, finished, 2015-2019)

Note: this rough draft of the story ran as a webcomic from 2015-2019. currently, an edited and revised version is being queried for publishing.

Reno teen Quin Roberts can’t stop the psychedelic gunk coming from his eyes, and makeup only covers so much. Finally reunited with his troubled childhood boyfriend, Damien Aattou, Quin’d rather hide in black eyeliner and pilfered booze than fess up to his secret. If authorities discover Quin’s Empathic connection to the psychic aliens taking his form around school, he’ll be taken away from Damien for training. And after what happened two years ago, he promised to never leave Damien alone -- not again.
