But danger haunts Pillar's journey as a demon seeks to destroy her.

Running from Demons tells the story of Pillar's search to find a place to call her own. The book continues the chronicles of Andor, a land where the mundane world clashes with one of magic and demons. If you love paranormal stories of discovery and mayhem, this is the story for you.

The Story that Created Andor

Once I wrote a short story that sold to a British epub, Spectra Magazine(2010). The publication is

long gone and the rights reverted to me. So, I self-published the story. It's now perma-free.

Demons and imps prey upon the city of Trebridge. Gillen, leader of the four Gargoyle Guardians, asks the Angeli for reinforcements because St. Edmund's church--the sanctuary that guards the only known portal into city--is beingdestroyed to make way for high-rise condos. Only his rival, Orvil, plots to replace Gillen as leader because he thinks Gillen incompetent.

  1. Who does Gillen, lodestar of the Trebridge gargoyles fight first? The invading demons? Or, his second who's plotting to replace him?
