Mortal Weather

Mortal Weather is about a story junkie who discovers that people are dying after telling him their stories.

Stanhope Ellis finds himself absorbing the stories of quirky characters who have one thing in common: closeness to death. As he struggles with whether he’s Death Man or a cosmic witness, he meets a wise nurse, Gayathri Das, who helps him navigate the emotional minefield. But will she die, like the others?

The Dreaming Gourd

A sisterhood of deities is determined to restore balance to Earth and her inhabitants, but they must first find harmony with each other.

The Dreaming Gourd reminds us that no one can go it alone and that dreams are what make life so very precious. A call to action for anyone who feels lost or small in this great big world: everyone is needed, and together we can accomplish anything.

The book includes linocut-styled illustrations by the author.

Fade To Blue

Memoried and Storied

Memoried and Storied moves beyond the outrage and horror of Post-Civil War lynchings by sharing details about the victims’ lives, saying their names, and bringing compassion and healing to their memory through multi-racial, multi-generational, community-led rituals of remembrance.

Full-color photos enhance the narrative depicting historical monuments, events, people of the communities, and families of the victims.
