The Surreal Adventures of Anthony Zen

Humor/Satire

These twenty-three interconnected short stories dissect the chaos of modern life with a unique brand of off-the-wall humour. Anthony Zen pokes fun at the idea that our bosses can be pigs, our parents can be embarrassing and absent-minded, time is relative, justice is blind, and the foundations of our relationships might not always pass the inspection of a team of geologists.

Erift's Journeys: Secrets of The Sealed Forest

Children’s Middle Grade/Tween

Joseph Erift should be worried about finding a job or getting a car as he approaches his last year of high school. But the worries of an average teenager are abruptly abandoned when he suddenly finds himself confronted with the task of stopping an unhinged man he doesn't know from unleashing a dark power into the world. He can't help but question why he has to be the one to traverse a dangerous forest and face mythical creatures he never dreamed existed. The only swords he's ever swung were in video games. He didn't even believe in real magic... until now. So why does sword-play and casting spells start to come naturally to him? Why do a strange old sage and a coffee-addicted professor believe him to be something he isn't? What if... he's not so average after all? One thing's for certain; he won't find answers if he runs away.
