The Yarns

I work on multiple projects simultaneously, and at any given moment will have a handful of stories in final editing, the throws of writing, and the early stages of research.​

I occasionally also give updates on the stories themselves on Twitter and Facebook, so connect with me on those platforms for more information.

But before the killer can be found a hidden bomb is detonated at the airport with the enigmatic threat of more explosions if anyone leaves or enters the terminal.​

As the situation quickly escalates out of their control, Shadell Bittering realizes that the killer is not trapped in the terminal with them; they are trapped with him.​
