Supernatural PI Mystery/ Thriller

When "Sufi chick" spa owner Núr Lucas hires him to locate the angel of despair, private detective C. R. Oliver thinks he’s taking another safe and easy missing-person case, but he soon finds himself swept into the otherworldly schemes of the Seven Sins, the emotional manipulation of his own client, and the temptations of a young fallen angel who clues him in to the secret for cheating Death Herself.

Drawing on sources as disparate as film noir, quantum physics, Medieval theology, and Gilligan’s Island, Pin pulls the reader through a two-fisted, hardboiled investigation into the family intrigues of the semi-divine, a mystery that dredges up the conflict of individual and archetype, the role of literature in defining the soul, the decadence of social progress, and the basic metaphysical nature of reality.

Supernatural Thriller

Long-haired Scottish rock singer Spark MacDubh drops dead on a snow-covered street of his native Bronzehall, only to be jolted back to life by what he calls 'lightning from Heaven'. Following his resurrection, Spark's sanity is stretched thin: during waking hours, he receives instructions from deities known as the Metal Gods; at night he is haunted by visions of a Devil who wields ultimate power over the music industry. Employing behaviour that swings between messianic and infernal, Spark gets his old band back together with a view to steering them towards greatness. The Devil, however, only grants success in exchange for souls. Unwilling to use his bandmates' eternal souls as bargaining tools, MacDubh comes up with a preferable route to stardom: put the Devil out of business. A simple idea but questionable in terms of practicality. For starters, it requires a trip to Hell, and only the right music can open the gateway to that dimension. Catch-22? More like Catch-666.

Humorous Paranormal Mystery/ Romance

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

Rose realizes she's wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She's well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won't help with number fifteen-- do more with a man. Joe's new to town, but it doesn't take a vision for Rose to realize he's got plenty secrets of his own.

Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they'll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn't her biggest worry after all.
