January 2021

When gunfighter Ian D’Argent steps off the midnight stage in the town of Babylon Creek, he walks into a place on the verge of a range war. He quickly finds himself at odds with a powerful and greedy cattle baron. Ian’s reputation for being a vicious killer soon comes to haunt him and puts him in danger of losing the townspeople’s trust. His only friends are the town undertaker, a bawdy saloon girl, and an educated prize fighter. Together they stand as a renegade force between the cattle baron and the hardworking ranchers of Babylon Creek. Victory will not come easy. A threat borne of pure evil is about to descend upon the town. If Ian cannot come to grips with his past and overcome his own demons, he will lose Babylon Creek…and his soul.

Summon the Hunters

July 2021

New Orleans is a world all its own and  the Hunters must navigate the wild, weird Crescent City nightlife in pursuit of an elusive killer. But the clock is ticking! If they don't take him down soon, he will collect on a demonic bounty and become a malevolent demigod! Enemies and danger await them around every corner, but with the help of a few unlikely allies, the Hunters have no intention of backing down!

Their latest assignment is Victor Howe, a psychopathic cult leader from Waco, Texas, who will stop at nothing to renew his reign of terror. To make things worse, two demons with a special grudge against the Hunters have made a pact with Howe and a mysterious traitor is out to get them! In order to take on Howe and his army of  armed fanatics, the Hunters must reunite with some old friends...and make peace with some old enemies. 

Can the Hunters defeat a deranged cult leader with over a hundred followers? Who is the traitor helping the demons? Can the Hunters convince former foes to set aside their differences in time? Or will they be left to fight the growing army on their own?


Heaven nor Hell

December 2018

Leonard, a process server from Dallas, is having the worst day of his life. He has a scorching hangover, his girlfriend dumped him, a stalker is trying to ruin his life, and to top it all off he just took four bullets to the back. Now Leonard has a choice to make. He can follow the dark and terrifying Angel Azrael, or follow Qarinah, a beautiful succubus. (Not a hard decision, really.) The choice he makes leaves him hounded by a rogue demon slayer, hassled by his ex-girlfriend, who is determined to save his soul; and all the while, he is observed by an elite cadre of Angels called the Malakim, who ultimately must decide whether Leonard should live or die...again!

Will Leonard defeat the demon slayer? Can he get his ex to leave him alone? And who the Hell is Olivia, anyway? The answers to those questions will send Leonard on a supernatural roller coaster and Heaven, Hell, and Dallas will never be the same again!

The New Normal

Anthology Edited by Nikki Mitchell

Includes "Last Shift" by Clinton A. Love

Amidst the pandemic of 2020, a group of 17 authors, aided by the help of the ever-present Twitter, decided to band together to cope with the new normal that had become their lives. Thus, the zombie anthology was born.

An anthology of various zombie fiction, the authors were given three linking components: the setting is Earth, a virus created zombies, and they can only be killed by targeting their brains. The rest was up to each individual author, to interpret as they desired.

Within this collection, you will find unique takes on the zombie short story, from the perspectives of survivors as well as the zombies themselves. You will find stories rooted in humour, stories that will yank on your heartstrings, and stories that make you question your own existence. Lose yourself in a world where you biggest fear is staying alive--and not zombified!

The Black Book is the evolution of that book.

The Black Book also addresses Self-Harm, a problem which has become more pervasive, but for which conventional avenues provide very few solutions. the Black Book provides, not only information for both parents and the victims of Self-Harm, but provides actual solutions to the problem based on a deep understanding of the subject. There are two dedicated chapters, one for parents and one for young people which outline a strategy to open up communication and get the solutions under way so that it can be stopped before it is too late.

If you find yourself being bullied and taken advantage of, or if you are concerned for someone else who is, YOU NEED THIS BOOK. If you or your child is intentionally harming themselves, YOU NEED THIS BOOK.
