Three people joined by destiny...
Lord Kagan Donmall rules the Verge, the border that protects the magical Fae Inlands from the mundane mortal world. Recently, the Verge has been failing and he suspects the source of magic is fading. His prayers to Danu have gone unanswered, until now.
The young mortal, Lauren Montgomery, hears the message of Danu and eagerly agrees to be the Lady of the Verge, for she desires more than a mundane life.
But Lauren’s twin sister, Tessa-ever her sister’s protector, challenges the decision. The Verge falls, and the Fae and mortal worlds suffer a double apocalypse.
Now Kagan, Lauren, and Tessa must survive in this new, hostile world and discover a way to repair that which has been destroyed while navigating the bonds of duty, love, and vengeance.
...and will do anything to find it.
Relentlessly, she works her science team--along with her co-project leader and fiancé, Dr. Julian Saunders--in order to create the first lab-contained wormhole. Their boss, Dr. Janson, has a secret agenda. He adds a military contingent, which expands their six person team to twelve and increases tensions between the members. Egos will clash, agendas will cross, and their worlds will be undone as they travel through the wormhole.
The team, unable to return home and facing numerous dangers--conflicting desires, burning suns, cannibalistic monsters--is plunged into an adventure beyond their control. They struggle to unravel millennia old secrets in an alien world where nothing is what it seems. While Captain Lewis' leadership strengthens, Cass deals with her destiny as the Brajj queen, and the Brajj, Jeamon, questions his lifelong beliefs and loyalties.
Cass and her team wrestle with her royal status to the Brajj, while being tossed between love and betrayal, genius and madness, and a jealousy frightening enough to cause the destruction of worlds.

Paramedics aren't born cynical. The job either hardens or devours them.
Have you ever wondered what paramedics experience? Dealing with 'the job' isn't glamorous. At its worst, it's gruesome. This very short story is not for the faint of heart or minors, but is for those fascinated with getting a behind the scenes look at EMS. It gets inside the mind of a rookie paramedic dealing with the realistic horror of humanity. It's an intense sensory ride, but not a normal story. Dozens of real medics, other than me, have agreed that it's an accurate portrayal--emotionally, visually, mentally, and sensory.
You know you want to look. Everyone does, they just don't want to admit it. How else do you think this has been in the top 10-15 fee kindle medical since Oct 1, 2013?
So why are you waiting?
Approx 5-10 pages depending on font/reader 2000+ intense words in the mind of a paramedic. 1st person.
NOT FOR UNDERAGE READERS! WARNING: graphic details of death, adult language, minor description of nudity.
It's a lifestlye filled with hours of boredom punctuated by moments of terror and glimpses of perfection.
Have you ever wondered what paramedics experience? Dealing with 'the job' takes over a third of a medic's life and more. Working twenty-four hour shifts is the industry standard, which makes sleep deprivation also a standard regardless of the Department of Transportation's regulations for other careers. EMS must be able to perform in the worst conditions at any moment, which subjects paramedics to extreme stress hormones, emotional turmoil, and physical wear and tear.
This 5600+ word short story isn't for the faint of heart or minors, but it is for those fascinated with getting a behind the scenes look at EMS. It gets inside the mind of a veteran paramedic dealing with an emergency call. It's an intense sensory ride, and an accurate portrayal of paramedics written in deep 1st person POV. This is the second, standalone story in my paramedic fiction series. Be sure to read my first one, Downgrade.
You know you want to look. Everyone does, they just don't want to admit it.
So why are you waiting?
