Killers and Demons II: They Return
Evil is back, with a greater appetite for death.
They lurk forever in the shadows, smile at you in the morning, and haunt your dreams at night. You can’t hide, you can’t run, and there’s no escape. You can only scream when they come for you.
Killers and Demons II: They Return is a collection of thirteen tales, blending short stories and flash fiction, tales where the blood lingers on your tongue or spurts quickly from the swift cut.

Fairy Tale Fusion
Welcome to Fairy Tale Fusion.
Where things get messy in the Riding Hood.
What if the characters in Fairy Tales existed? What if they lived and breathed in a place called Fairyland, a setting not too divergent from our world, situated next to Wonderland and down the lane from Camelot?
Meet Detective Piper, member of the Fairyland Metro Police. His job, to ferret out the suspects and investigate crime on the streets and in the lanes of Fairyland. Along with Officer Simon, he’s hard at work, searching for a missing pumpkin, hunting for an arsonist, wondering what the future holds in a series of crystal ball robberies, and dealing with spells, curses and other strange happenings.
His cases, and others like them, are the headlines of the day, brought to you by FTN news anchors Spider Bramble and Aurora Gossamer, with entertainment correspondent Lucinda Lovedust and reporter Chip Charming. Keep up-to-date on the latest information out of Fairyland and its adjacent suburbs, and the recent hubbub with trolls, princesses, fairies and their ilk.
And after leaving Fairyland, you’ll journey to a place where toys are born… to be bad. When spells go wrong and playthings turn mean, where clown dolls would kill to meet you and a Rubik’s cube holds a cosmic secret.
If you survive the toy box, then head out to party with some elves (if you can outlast the celebration), battle in a far, far away galaxy, play “find the dragon”, and discover how they do crime and punishment in Oz.
And remember, always be nice to your Fairy Godmother.

Reflections of Poetry:
Travel through a mirror image into the imaginative world of verse and discover this distinct collection of poetry.
Reflections of Poetry is the third book of poetry by author A. F. Stewart, and contains a diverse selection of verse, structured under the headings of Scotland, My Scotland, Irish Ramblings, Celtic Influences, The Moon, The Sea, Art, Nature, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Wonder, Human Emotions, In the Shadow of Death, Humour, and Miscellaneous Musings. It is an assortment of personal thoughts on a wide variety of subjects that inspired the author and is an expression of her view of the world.
I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada and I have been practicing the craft of writing for several years, periodically interrupted by pesky events from life. I am an independently published author, with an overly creative mind and an active imagination. My main focus is in the fantasy and horror genres, with an avid interest in history and mythology, themes I often work into my books and stories.
My interests include writing and reading (of course), history, sci-fi and fantasy, and painting. I love movies, especially action films and I collect sword replicas.
I have several published books and some of my latest include my fractured fairy tale collection, Fairy Tale Fusion, my third volume of poetry, Reflections of Poetry, a paranormal romance/horror novella, Gothic Cavalcade, and the dark fantasy novella, Ruined City. I also have stories appearing in the anthologies, Christmas Lites III, Coffin Hop: Death by Drive-In, and Mechanized Masterpieces. All my books can be found at online retailers like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Lulu.com and Smashwords.
Some of my upcoming books include the sequel to Ruined City, Whispers of Gods and Spirits, a steampunk adventure novel, Racing the Hellfire Club, a fantasy novel, The Prophecy of Seven, and the first book in a steampunk fantasy series, The Duke's Assassin.
