Benjamin Fouche is the author of his Gothic-horror story website, Spookinite Valley (www.spookinite.com), and the composer for his musical project, Morbus Tenebris (www.morbustenebris.com). Several events in Benjamin’s early life have had an immense influence on his writing and the stories that he would write many years later. His fondest memories include his childhood Halloweens, listening to a CD entitled “Halloween Sounds”, visiting the virtual haunted house website www.frightbytes.com, and going through a carnival spook house called “Gravestone Manor” at an annual fair that came through his town every Labor Day weekend. These particular times during his upbringing would everlastingly preserve his love and passion for the darker side of life. His favorite authors include Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley.

Everything Alva Viola Taverner has ever understood or known is gone. She’s a mechanic in a world of magic and faeries, where gears long ago turned to rust and dust. Only one thing now matters: surviving long enough to save those she considers her family.
But when the world itself is destroyed by the fairy tale, can there be a happily ever after?
** Final installment in the serialized novel **
"The first great serialized novel of 2015." - Black Gate Magazine
In a city of majesty and brutality, of warring races and fragile alliances, a sacred mermaid has been brutally murdered. An abomination, a soulless Arukh is summoned to hunt the killer. As the world around the Arukh drifts into war and madness, her search for justice leads her on a journey to discover redemption and even beauty in the midst of chaos.
The Mermaid's Tale is violent and brutal and haunting and beautiful. Highly recommended.
