Plays

  • Smoke and Mirrors
    Connection is something all human beings crave. Especially with those we love. There is nothing more painful than a disconnect. Particularly with those we love. Dayton needs permission. Cal needs to let go. Naomi and Becca need to help them figure it out. And Kevin? He just wishes someone would listen.
  • Locke and Cage(Sherwood Cycle #1)
    Jean-Luc Scathelocke, nephew of the legendary Robin Hood, takes the "opportunity" to free a pair of political hostages. What he didn’t count on is the assassin Malbete, who wants his head, the feisty Romani Tirzah Massimo, who might be more of an ally than a distraction, and Declan Pascal, aka the Scorpion, who may not be everything he seems... Prequel to "Wolves of Sherwood".
  • Wolves of Sherwood(Sherwood Cycle #2)
    Cassian is the son of infamous outlaw Robin of Locksley, better known as Robin Hood.

The reputation of Cassian's father might not be enough to protect him. Published by Heartland Plays, Inc.
  • B/V
    Bani or Vitae--Death or Life. When you're tagged, you're tracked. Everywhere you go, everything you do, every thought in your head, and word out of your mouth is accessible to them.

  • Butterflies
    In a city devastated by the effects of disease and war, a raid goes horribly wrong.

  • Polterguys
    Everyone has their proverbial “skeleton in the closet”. What if you had a zombie in yours? A hypochondriac zombie in the umpteeth round of Simon Says with a jealous poltergeist who also reads the dictionary for fun. And a Shade who just happens to be a) the ghost of your older brother who b) is married to your not-so-dead roommate?
  • Riding Rails
    Matt is aware of what could happen if he decides to jump a freight--he knows it's dangerous; he also knows he can't stay at home anymore, not with so many mouths to feed, and watching the trains every morning isn't helping matters. It's not until Matt encounters Danny, an injured freight jumper, that he has to make a choice: to stay, or to run.
