Dim Sum Asylum

In an alternate San Francisco, the human and magical worlds have collided in a big, messy way. Fairies, dragons and other magical creatures mix with humans, and it's the job of the San Francisco Police Department's Arcane Crimes unit to make sure nobody misuses magic for nefarious purposes. The Chinatown headquarters, known by its officers as the “Dim Sum Asylum”, is where most of the action is, and where Detective Roku calls home. More

Boys Don't Cry

Just a few weeks short of graduation, Mackenzie is evicted from his apartment, so it can be torn down to make way for a new development. He doesn't have the time, or more importantly the money, to find a decent new place; not until he graduates and starts working. His best friend Taylor drags Mackenzie to a work drinks party, where one of the coworkers, Laurent, offers him a place to stay. Laurent is the your stereotypical computer nerd: He has virtually no social skills, works non-stop for days on end, and is something of a snob. He's also obviously very rich, and Mackenzie doesn't have much choice. After all, it's only for a few weeks. More

Feral Dust Bunnies

Volume 4 of Offbeat Crimes

This fourth book of the Offbeat Crimes series puts the focus on Wolf, the 77th precinct's not-werewolf. Although raised by humans, Wolf still has a hard time understanding the subtilties of the world he was thrust into, especially relationships. He is effectively pansexual. Like most canids, Wolf follows his nose, and animal control officer Jason Chen smells good enough to make Wolf forget how to human. The two are thrown together frequently on Wolf's current case, which involves the discovery of several desiccated small animals around town. Their only clue to the mystery is the lone survivor: a small kitten that seems to have imprinted on Wolf. More

Intersections: Dragonfire Station Short Stories

Volume 4 of Dragonfire Station

This collection of short stories takes place in the universe built through the Dragonfire Station series. Most of the tales would best be described as backstories for many of the secondary characters introduced in the series. Some stories tell us how the people got to where we meet them in the series, while others might be better described as simply a slice of life in a person's day, giving us more insight into pivotal moments of the characters or the series.
