The Vagary Tales are a collection of eight short stories that each follow a separate path on a wandering journey.  Several genres are represented, so there is a story to appeal to almost anyone.

  •  "What is Right" is a story about Christian, a young man who finds himself unable to recall his recent past.  This puts him in danger when he discovers that remembering may cost him his life.
  • "The Man in Black" is my tribute to the great Johnny Cash.  See how many song titles you can find in this short story about George, a prisoner in Folsom Prison.
  • "Without a Trace" tells of the adventures of Todd and Charles who find a pair of underwear that turn the wearer invisible.
  • "Three Gifts from the Queen" is an epic fantasy about a visit Lord Ranor makes to see the Queen.  She presents to him three gifts: great and terrible gifts that Ranor wishes he hadn't received.
  • "Cross Word" is a short story of a woman cursed with a cryptic message in her New York Times.
  • "Sweet Tea" is a story about a boy, and his dog, Barnard.  Poor Barnard has post traumatic mowing syndrome.  Lance asks his neighbor, Mr. Wegner, if he can help alleviate Barnard's psychosis.
  • "The Grass is Greener" gives reason #52 why you shouldn't take your wife golfing.
  • Being a high-level assassin isn't all its cracked up to be. Just when you think you have it all--expensive suits, fast cars, weekends on a yacht, travel to exotic lands--everything you know comes crashing down around you. Jake Monday hates Mondays more than any other day of the week. This Monday will change his life forever.  "Jake Monday" is an excerpt from my upcoming (2013) series.
