My new series about a private detective will be told in episodes or novellas, each dealing with a different case. I’m really excited as it will be the first urban fantasy I’ve ever done. It’s set in Austin, Texas, which has a reputation for being weird and will include stories that take place in the surrounding hill country. As a lifelong Texan, I have plenty of them to draw on. And they’re filled with quirky characters I’ve really enjoyed creating.
My name is John Nick Charles, but everyone calls me Jax. I’m a private detective but not your ordinary run-of-the-mill kind. Paranormal investigating is my thing. I deal with the likes of witches, ghosts, shapeshifters, alchemy, and the occult. My name usually doesn’t come up over cocktails at dinner parties. Most people in Austin, Texas, don’t even know I exist. Unless they find themselves in a situation where they need my particular expertise. And even then, they don’t like talking about it.
All Things Paranormal
It came as a surprise when famous explorer Sir Dwight Winston showed up at my office looking to hire me. Why me? A wealthy man like him could afford a top-notch team of investigators. Simple. He wanted me to keep it off the record. Of course, I jumped at the chance. I needed the money. And it seemed easy enough. My mistake.
The Hunter’s Moon
The morning after an unexpected visit from my Uncle Darwin, my secretary informed me I had an appointment with a potential client. I had qualms, worrying it was one of those cases where I’d be tailing a spouse, trying to get proof they’d been cheating. Imagine my surprise when I found out it had to do with a shapeshifter. One that might be going rogue.
Look for both novellas on Amazon. Also available on Kindle Unlimited.
