AS THE MOON SHINES ~ Hallie Thomas vanishes without a trace, and the authorities are baffled. Is she a runaway or has she been kidnapped? No ransom has been demanded, leading them to believe she is a victim of human trafficking or has been abducted by a killer. But there's an added sense of urgency to find her. Hallie has xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Anything that emits UV light, including the sun and some lightbulbs, is deadly to her. Hundreds of miles away in a remote area of the Apalachicola National Forest, a dead body lies rotting by a creek and an abandoned vehicle is hidden among the trees miles away with a Hallie's shoes in the back seat, but where is Hallie Thomas? The only way she can survive and hope to get back to civilization is at night…AS THE MOON SHINES.

PANOP'S CATS ~ The "residents" of the five-story luxury Self-Surrendering Custodial Confinement Center (SSCCC) enjoy privileges not afforded those incarcerated at ordinary penal institutions. Voluntarily pre-admitted to the octopus-shaped Panopticon (Panop) to prevent themselves from committing violent crimes, they assume they are always under surveillance, but they never know exactly when or if they are watched. Who is watching the watchers? And what happens when the watchers look away? Like Schrodinger's cats in a closed box, they are simultaneously alive...and dead.
Coming in Fall 2020!
