I put the food down for both my pups and went back inside to drink my coffee. I watched as a fly circled above Ellie Mae, then dove down and landed on her butt. She jumped higher than a jackrabbit and looked around to see who was there. Ellie went back to eating and the fly dove down yet again and landed on her back making Ellie Mae jump even higher, and I really think she was confused. This went on for about 2 minutes or so. Just for kicks I told her it was a ghost and turned on the fan to get rid of the fly. I wonder if she believes me?

A rock and roll love story that will shatter your heart and then glue the pieces back together. From the USA Today bestselling author of FINAL EXIT comes a breathtaking novel about love, friendship, and the fine line between the two.

Songwriter Casey Bradley is just eighteen years old on the day that handsome, charismatic singer Danny Fiore blows into her life and sets her heart on fire. Good girl Casey has never done anything her dad would disapprove of, but the first time she looks into those turbulent blue eyes, the first time she hears that golden voice, she’s ready to give up everything, home, family, fiancé, to follow Danny wherever his dreams lead them.

Together with guitar wizard Rob MacKenzie, Casey writes the songs that catapult Danny to a fame beyond their wildest imaginings. Through the lean years, when there isn’t enough to eat, and the fat years, when life comes at them so quickly there’s no time to breathe, they’re an unstoppable hit-making machine, the holy trinity of rock and roll. But the road to success is littered with land mines. Rivers of darkness flow through her troubled marriage, and every time Danny breaks her heart, it’s Rob who picks her up, dusts her off, and glues the pieces back together.

It isn’t until an unimaginable tragedy rocks their solid foundation that Casey is forced to question who she is and what she really wants from life. As she searches for herself amid the wreckage, she discovers the bittersweet truth that the choices a woman makes at thirty may differ vastly from those she made at eighteen.

COMING HOME is a poignant story about the seasons of a woman’s heart, and the roundabout route we sometimes have to take to get to where we’re meant to be.

This book contains adult situations and language.

Apocalypstick contains two deliciously dark short stories: Finding Home, a creepy supernatural horror, and Killing Tiffany Hudson, a post-apocalyptic tale of two genetically modified people who must decide the fate of humanity.

Finding Home: If you have ever glanced at a stranger in the grocery store, and wondered what their life must be like, and then followed them home to peek at them through their plantation blinds, and then slipped through that unlocked sliding door at night just to look around; if you stood next to their bed to watch over them while they slept, and thought I could live this life, then please seek help. Weirdo.

But on your way to the hospital (or the police station), walk a few steps in the shoes of a troubled man on a quest for a new home and a new life, while he deals with a few disturbing personal issues.Finding Home is a short paranormal horror story that lets you test-drive the lives of strangers in a perfectly legal, non-creepy way.

Killing Tiffany Hudson

Is there any line you wouldn’t cross to save the life of a loved one? Is there any price you wouldn’t pay? A young man battles with the consequences of his answers to these questions, in this post-apocalyptic short story, where right masquerades as wrong, weakness as strength, and deadly monsters as… camels? Well, sometimes, yes.
