We write the kind of stories we like to read. Upbeat stories where the protagonist gets handed the sticky end of things but with cleverness and persistence manages to beat someone over the head with it. With luck, he or she grows a bit and maybe finds romance and happiness.
At least, until the next story. Life is boring (for a protagonist) when there are no problems.
We enjoy writing these, and hope you'll enjoy reading them.

Detcon was a lot of fun. It was our first con as budding authors instead of fans, so we attended different programming than we've done in the past. It was like finding a new world in our backyard.
The paperback and ebook will be available on Amazon and Dark Myth's webstore early in 2023.
Our sales to Atthis Arts and UFO pushed us over the membership requirement. We're now officially, really, authors.
