Author's note - 5/5/2021: I'm currently at 35,000 words. Black is due to be published in the fall of 2021. 

Scout is...different.

When her inevitable change began, she was devastated. She had seen too many of her friends and family go Gray, and knew she only had days before she lost her mind completely. But for some reason, she didn't. In fact, Scout soon realized that she was gaining powers she could barely comprehend, powers that helped keep her alive. In her words, "My name is Scout, and I'm a killer. And it gives me no pride in saying so, but I'm very good at it."

Scout is determined to find her brother Lord. She must also find a cure to stop everyone she loves from eventually going Gray. But she'll need help. And whether it comes from the brilliant, enigmatic boy named Google, or from the mysterious man who has somehow resisted going Gray, she knows one thing: she is humanity's last hope. 

BLACK is Book Two of the FIREBRAND Trilogy, and returns you to the brutal world of GRAY.

Update - now at 35,000 words, and it's coming along nicely!

Boon Dohir lives near downtown Cincinnati. He's an attractive guy with an expensive car, a nice apartment, and a well-paying job.

But there's a darker side to Boon. He lives alone, he has no friends, and his drinking is out of control. Boon doesn't drink for fun, but to forget.

Because Boon Dohir has secrets – too many secrets. And one of those secrets is about to blindside him. In fact, it could kill him.

If he has any hope of overcoming the real-life demons threatening him now, Boon will have to face up to the demons of his past - if he can.
