Norman Jensen

Cheats Death 

a novel

(2022)

Life. Death. Life. When Norman Jensen faces the end of his hundred years on earth, Death offers him a chance to fix some things. On one condition.

First comes war. Then comes mission. Then comes baby on a baby cushion. For a hundred years, Norman Jensen endures life’s greatest challenges from war, to marriage, to a search for a cure that may no longer exist. But as his unending treasure hunt dominates his life, he can’t help but sense the specter of death chasing him every step of the way. Is it paranoia he feels? Or is the ghost of something real breathing on his back? And if it’s real, why does it keep letting him live?

Note: This book is an expanded update to my novella, Cards in the Cloak.

Snow in Miami

the McCray Parables #2

(2022)

Last year, Douglas McCray used three Christmas fables to convince Miranda to date him. This year, he’ll use three more to get out of fulfilling an expectation. But is this the best way to begin a marriage?

A year ago, office drone Douglas McCray convinced Miranda, the woman of his dreams, to become his date at the office Christmas party after using three holiday-themed stories to argue his case. Now he’ll use three more to avoid going out on Christmas Eve to buy her and her four-year-old son Christmas gifts. But will he convince his new wife that he’s right? Or will she have a story of her own to counteract his subversion and teach him the error of his ways?
