My first alternate reality short story is available on Amazon!


A Long Way to Morning was really fun to write because I was inspired by Peter O’Donnell’s Modesty Blaise comics. I’ve read them since I was a teenager.

Obviously, my main character Iz isn’t as competent as Modesty but she does hold her own when she has a good plan. I saw this story as a black and white comic in my mind while writing it. Another inspiration was the Black Cat from Marvel comics. It’s set in an old Scottish castle. Iz must break into it to save her younger sister.
