Reading Room

Welcome – this is my little reading nook that I’d like to share with you!  You’ll find some free posts in the Reading Room below (short stories, flash fiction, and even poems).  This is also the place to find links to purchase all the books!

So, what’s next?  Replenish your chocolate/ caffeine supply and get comfortable as you try a few new reads!

◊The Rahki Chronicles◊

*The #RahkiWorld adventure began on September 25, 2018 and the final book was released on September 25, 2022. However, the series is being pulled from vendors as it will be exclusive to Amazon and part of Kindle Unlimited in 2023.* 

Rahki banner - March 2021

Some epic journeys start with a stumble…Mia Rayner’s did anyway. Normal had once been a 9-5 job, her own apartment, and binge-watching television. Now, her life revolves around Romani (Gypsy) magic, martial arts, and a mountain lion. Ancient prophecies may claim she and Nadya are meant to change the world. However, Mia is just trying to protect the young, gifted orphan from the next attempt on her life.

◊Atlantic Island Saga: Guardian◊

The exciting conclusion of my Atlantic Island: Guardian trilogy was released October 2020. What are you willing to sacrifice to save the world?


An FBI investigation and an ancient Mayan curse? Scout Ainsley’s life just went from bad to worse and he hasn’t even graduated high school yet.

If you want to see if you can help Scout – take this fun QUIZ (only 10 questions) to claim a Mayan artifact for yourself!

Do you like time travel? How about action and adventure? It is TIME for you to join the Atlantic Island Saga! This sci-fi fantasy universe offers independent, but related tales from multiple authors.

Want to know how it started? You need to read Fredric Shernoff’s Atlantic Island Trilogy! These novels are being re-released as part of the Atlantic Island Universe and there are even more books in this world. As a special treat, enjoy the trailer below!


Amazon has released a serialized fiction app called Kindle Vella – you can click here to check it out. I have several short stories available now and more will be added. There is one completed story set in the Rahki world (The Bee’s Knees), but the remainder are part of a new urban fantasy/ paranormal romance world of witches, shifters, and all kinds of magical adventures! You can read the first 3 episodes for free so check them out!

I’ve fallen in love with writing drabbles and short flash fiction pieces.  Most of those have been accepted into anthologies; however, not everything makes it in.  Below is one such example.  You’ll also find links below to some additional freebies to read.  These are unrelated to the #RahkiWorld but hopefully still fun.
