“Four fantastical tales, with a touch of magic and a powerful message…”

Fractured Fairy Tales Meets The Twilight Zone in this  collection of four uniquely captivating, edgy, fantastical character-driven tales, each sprinkled with a touch of magic, and a powerful message that lingers long after the reads…

1. Ferrari Testarossa is his ‘lamp.’ Finnegus Boggs has been a Somalian warrior, an Egyptian scribe, a Cambridge professor. In 2015 he’s a doctor, and never in his over 5,000 yrs had he been carjacked. But Billy needs help to save his best bud, Tyron. Only a Marid Djinn has the choice to grant a wish. Will these two high school punks be awarded a chance to set things right and alter the course of their lives?

2. Hawk wanted the rabbit to present to a mate. Megan wanted her husband Mitch to wait, and talk to her instead of going to work. Neither got what they wanted, but both Hawk and Megan learned a valuable life lesson in Bird’s Eye View.

3. Michael still loves the family’s annual summer camping trip. His teen sister, Amy, doesn’t. It’s likely going to be their last year among the ancient redwoods, the majestic elks, and the seemingly glowing round rocks Michael discovers along the bank of the roaring river. The Activation is a cautionary [campfire] tale for bickering children, and the parents who fail to silence them.

4. Faith is a fashion designer in love with her husband, Billy Rogue. Billy is a famous punk rocker, in love with himself. Sylvester McCain is with the Morality Police, and has traveled a sliver of light to reset Faith’s path in life in The Morality Police.


Praise for FFFTZ

★★★★★ “Fantastical and Philosophical Fun! an intriguing set of short stories. Each deals in different ways with the theme of personal responsibility. While that theme could come off as preachy, these stories embed fantasy elements that bring the reader to imaginary but just possible places. They are a particularly strong set of stories and a great read for young adults, and even some not-so-young adults.” Bryan Price, Amazon Reviewer

★★★★★  ““Finnegus Boggs is an excellent story, especially told in the street language the author used throughout. Great message for kids, but also for adults…that we control our lives with the choices we make.” Neonator, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★ ““Totally engrossing!! Read through it in one night. Especially liked The Morality Police, related to Faith and her struggle to be her own woman in the shadow of her famous husband. But all the stories were fast paced and engaging, captivating tales. Highly recommended read!” BJ Fera, Goodreads Reviewer
