My Description: I’ve got a short story in a book with fantasy bestseller Piers Anthony! Holy bones! It just came out January 1st 2015. My short story is about Hog McMasters, the ex-gunslinger, former panther-tamer, and current sword-fighting champion of Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, and parts of Kentucky and Manitoba. In this newest adventure, “In the Clutches of the Mummy Prince,” Hog battles an illegal mummy smuggling operation, jungle guerillas, and battle-nudity.



The Lancer, by B.C. Johnson


Young Adult Noir, 5000 words

Luke Harris and Mel Vega, professional detectives, high school students, and power-couple are hired by nervous beauty Vanessa Palmer.

Vanessa, sure of her boyfriend Jake’s infidelity, just wants proof.
Pictures, video, anything showing the Hinckley Prep star water-polo player
breaking her heart. Luke and Mel’s routine cheating investigation goes
sideways as Vanessa’s older sister appears, a world-wise girl with an
agenda and a penchant for dark secrets.

As they dig deeper, Luke and Mel begin to wonder if the truth is better
than lie, and whether questions always deserve answers . .
