A Message From the Author: Hi there, thank you for visiting the website. I hope you enjoy reading the book… ;) 

I tried to keep it fairly light and top-level — enjoyable fluff, if you will — while providing a bit of an undercurrent of the bonds shared trauma can make or unmake, the impact of words unsaid and feelings unresolved, and the importance of facing your fear.

I’m currently working on a larger Cottage book, a collection of short stories and novelettes, which includes Lake Island.

To make sure you don’t miss that — and/or if you want to get a free ARC before the book is released on Amazon — be sure to fill out the form below.

You’ll get Pursuit, an aliens-come-to-earth sci-fi short from M.H., plus two exclusive short stories, one from M.H. and another from my buddy, Finn Eccleston.

Plus, you’ll get on the list for upcoming free ARCs of mine, and other goodies I like to provide my loyal readers.

M.H.’s short story is called Canoeing for Casuals, and it’s a funny contemporary young romance short story. I think you’ll like it. I certainly do.

Finn’s is…well, I’ll just let you discover Finn’s for yourself. It’s goofy yet kinda smart, which pretty much describes Finn.

You can choose which author you’re interested in, so you won’t hear from those you don’t want to, and my emails will be value-focused and won’t flood your inbox. I won’t just pop in when I want something from you.

I’ll pop in when I have something to give you, some sort of value to provide. And yes, of course, I’ll also let you know when there’s a new book I think you’d be interested in – such as my own.

I appreciate you reading, and I thank you again.
