What is it about?

The name Tribus Dulce translates to “Three Sweets”, and represents the distinct flavors of each short story in this novel. The first narrative carries the taste of “Bitter”, and follows the struggles of seventeen year old high school senior Abra Ostberg and her best friend Judith Lee. Abra has endured a violently abusive household at the hands of her father from the time that she was very small, and takes refuge in Judy’s house whenever the maelstrom of her life grows too much to bear on her own. Abra remains in this environment, hoping that by serving as a lightning rod of sorts she can protect her mother and younger brother, even though her mother has never intervened in her father’s abuse.

One night, Abra experiments with a drug known as Hyperion, and what follows is a whole new world of horrors as the drug awakens Abra’s latent power to World Walk into the depths of the soul.

The Three Categories of My Novels

Salutations! Today I'd like to talk about the three levels of content/maturity that each of my novels fall under.

One of the things I'm a firm believer of, is being open and honest with my fan base. To me, to create a series and draw people in, having every aspect of it appear to represent a certain set of purpose, morality and narrative flow, only to at the last minute once you've gained a following and a steady stream of cash throw in something that completely changes and turns on its head everything I told you I was about is the height of cowardice and sneaky marketing. Consider that harsh, and a run on sentence. I'll accept that it's one of those things.

I have no desire to draw you in, make my money in a safe way, then flip the script and exclaim "JUST KIDDING, YOU THOUGHT THIS STORY AND THESE CHARACTERS WERE LIKE THIS BUT I CAN MAKE MORE MONEY LIKE THIS!"

I also would never want a young reader who enjoys, say upcoming all ages novel Nora and the Eternal Waterwheel to see my name on Murder the Citizens, think the novel is safe for them to read and suddenly be thrust into a far more maturely written world. To that end, I established three levels to my novels:
