An FBI raid on an illegal artifact trafficking ring goes sideways, leaving several agents dead and one in critical condition. A magic wielding assassin is on the loose, tying up loose ends. It’s up to psychic investigator Jake Foster to find out who or what is behind it. Once he sobers up.

Nevermore is a neighborhood near downtown Baltimore, surrounding the home and grave site of Edgar Allen Poe, occupied predominantly by Fae; elves, dwarves, nymphs, and all manner of Otherrealmers who choose to live on our side of the Veil.

The very first books I remember reading were The Hobbit and The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. I started playing Dungeons & Dragons when it came in a red box. Suffice to say, I enjoy fantasy, but I was always drawn to more modern and futuristic worlds thanks to my love of military action adventures, superheroes, and (nearly) all things Star Wars.
Hence I’ve never been able to tie myself to a genre.
I delve more deeply into my love of this wonderful genre-defying genre we call Urban Fantasy on my blog. I welcome you to read more of my geeky ramblings on movies and television, thoughts on storytelling, and misadventures in the comic book industry, too.
