Read full description of the books Night Cruiser: Short Stories about Creepy, Amusing or Spiritual Encounters with the Shadow:What is “the shadow” in these stories? It’s what lurks in the dark, and it’s different for everyone.
• For Isabel, it’s the whisper from the basement that invites her to come on down.
• For second-grader Emma, it’s the tortured spirit that has haunted her family for generations.
• For Deacon William, it’s the damaged android that frightens visitors in the retreat house halls.
All ten short stories in this collection are about how the different characters deal with what they find in the dark. Two of these stories received recognition from Writer’s Digest and others won awards or were published. They ask:
• What’s inside the car that prowls a lonely street at night?
• Can Brent save himself from the deadly creature he’s sure his wife has become?
• Donald teaches a night class, but what’s behind those thick glasses he turns upon his shyest student?
Night Cruiser offers an unusual perspective. With a background in pastoral ministry, the author bases her stories on insights from psychologist Carl Jung’s concept of the Shadow, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s belief that even the worst catastrophe can be redeemed, and from the faith of the medieval woman mystic Julian of Norwich.
If you’re intrigued by the thing that takes shape at the foot of your bed at night, if you enjoy a little sly humor, if you crave tales that offer hope, and if you like stories that make you wonder, take a ride on the Night Cruiser.
Read information about the authorWith many years of experience as a librarian and as a pastoral minister, and a lot more years as a mom, I’m the author of Blood Seed: Coin of Rulve Book One,
Dark Twin: Coin of Rulve Book Two, and Night Cruiser: Short Stories about Creepy, Amusing or Spiritual Encounters with the Shadow. Coming up is Time Candle, the third book in the Coin series.
Reviewers have called my books "genre-bridging," in that they include dark fantasy, tender romance, and the spiritual journey. They are dark, to be sure, but there's always light at the end of the tunnel!
Many of my themes have roots in Carl Jung's concept of the shadow and in J.R.R. Tolkien's idea of the "eucatastrophe," the belief that even the worst catastrophe can be redeemed. Like many of my favorite authors, I believe spirituality is a part of what makes us human.
My fiction has received commendations from Writer's Digest, Writers of the Future, Midwest Book review, and Reader's Favorite Book Review. People who've read my books were kind enough to have awarded them mostly, so far, five stars. Blood Seed received the month's Best Ebook Cover award from The Book Designer.
I hold a couple of master's degrees and graduated from the science fiction and fantasy workshop Viable Paradise. I'm also an Established Author with Detroit Working Writers, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and an ethical author with the Alliance of Independent Authors. Some years ago I was lucky enough to actually touch a wild whale calf off the coast of Baja California. I love dark chocolate, and am a fan of Star Wars and the Holmes-Data-Spock archetype.
