Ravenhill Court

Recipient of the Readers’ Favorite Five Stars award

Novella (78 print pages) adapted from screenplay

Present day…
A man returns to a long-abandoned neighborhood. Doors stand ajar, shutters hang open, lawns and landscaping are unkempt. The man sits on the curb and opens a leather-bound journal. Through the journal, he recalls the events that took place in Ravenhill decades earlier.

Journey back to 1964…
The man is just a boy. He and his friends find that their neighborhood, a cul-de-sac set into the foothills along the California coast, is not all that it appears. There are strange happenings; some amazing, some terrifying, and all pointing to the fact that this little community of families might just be something other than what the rest of the world perceives it to be.

Thirteen year-old Ben Foster, along with his friends Peter and Louis, and his older sister Julie, set out to find the secret behind the peculiar events that the outside world doesn’t see and that those living in the neighborhood either choose to ignore or are conspiring to keep hidden.

Young Peter will set the tales down in his journal, which years later a grown Ben Foster will clasp to as the last surviving corroboration of their adventures and of their astonishing discovery.

“This is an excellent science fiction/fantasy story, particularly suitable for the young adult market, but equally applicable to all ages. Clever, witty, and sometimes dark humor will always have a place on our bookshelves. Five stars.” – Readers Favorite reviewer

Awakening (The Sword-Mage Chronicles Book 1)

When you wake up with no memory of who you are, you know it’s probably going to be a bad day.

That’s exactly what Bentley thought — but she had no idea how bad.

When she saw the wires connecting her to a strange, glowing sword, and an old guy bleeding out next to her, she started to get an inkling.

And then she met the Three.

Three gods cast out of the Unseen World, condemned to make their way in this universe as best they can. Naturally, after 300 years wandering through space, they’ve devolved into rogues in robes; hustlers with a (strange) moral code.

While desperately trying to keep from being thrown out the airlock, Bentley discovers that the Three have a secret. A secret that involves the sword, the Unseen World, and a big bad that’s hell bent on hunting her down.

With the fate of both worlds hanging in the balance, Bentley has to survive long enough to figure out how to get the Three on board and stop the fabric of spacetime from being torn apart.

But that starts with figuring out the significance of this damn sword!

If you like your sci-fi witty and every now and again a little ‘off the wall’, you’ll love this original series, from the best-selling author of The Ascension Myth.

Get it now.

Broken Time

Is anybody listening? Dr. Alessi Byrne has spent her life studying spatial anomalies to prove string theory. It seems that her work will be nothing more than theoretical research until an anomaly opens over Antarctica and transmits a three-word message: Is anybody listening? The message isn’t the only thing to emerge from the anomaly. Something on the other side is having compounding consequences on the planet, and Alessi’s team is unable to crack the code to discover who or what is sending the communication. In desperation, Alessi secretly sends a reply, and the answer calls everything she knows about science, life, and the universe into question. Alessi has proven her theories; but at what cost?

Meet Sherri Moorer

My name is Sherri Fulmer Moorer. I write because I’ve always loved to do it, and ebooks gave me an opportunity to share those stories with readers that I just couldn’t pass up. Plain and simple, I’m an opportunist. The purpose of my writing is to escape reality and experience the adventure of ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. I write in a variety of genres because I can’t be pigeonholed into one area, and I’m many other things in addition to being an author. I work full-time in professional licensing, which is great for keeping me in touch with people and reality and, in turn, inspires me to write more. I’m married and live in the woods with two parrots that keep our hearts, home, and lives filled with joy and silliness that most people find strange. I’m a social media rambler and borderline introvert/extrovert whose kindred spirit, according to online quizzes, is somewhere between a Sith Inquisitor from Star Wars and Scooter from The Muppets.

What they find about themselves in that struggle will lead them to greatness… or to the destruction of their idyllic way of living. Who will rise a hero, and who will become a monster?

Of what is left when paranoia becomes all-encompassing, and men find the evil within each of them.

Meet Mars G. Everson

Mars G. Everson writes Sci-fi, Fantasy, and especially likes writing a mix of both. His favorite authors in those realms are Ursula K. Le Guin, Arthur C. Clarke, J.R.R. Tolkien and Brandon Sanderson. He became a writer mainly so he could put his name in the same paragraph as those writers. Mission Accomplished! He would like to live in a time where technology is indistinguishable from magic. Luckily, reality is turning that way really fast. The bad part: reality is turning that way really fast. He lives with his wife and superhero sons somewhere in America, when not travelling around this world and others in the multiverse to learn as much as he can about the human experience.

What they are saying about Shela.

“I thoroughly enjoyed “Shela”! I was pulled into the story right away and enjoyed it all the way to the end. Highly recommended.
Technical analysis of this scifi novel: world-building good (it’s Earth, but not the Earth you know or likely even imagined), character development good, plenty of action, and the suspense is excellent.”
Jack L. Knapp, author

“Set in the near future, this exciting and imaginative ocean adventure features genetically engineered human swimmers, fatalistic sentient dolphins, and malevolent human traffickers. You’ll feel the spray on your face and swell of the sea as the heroes race to save one of their own. Definitely worth a read.”
Science Fiction and Fantasy writer – S. Evan Townsend

“Brumbaugh’s creative imagination sparkles in this tale of action and suspense, love and heartbreak, good and evil. A close-knit community of genetically-altered human shepherds live an idyllic life on the ocean, working with their dolphin partners to cultivate fish for harvest. That is, until slave traders kidnap a female shepherd and spirit her away to a fate unknown. Ride a rollercoaster of emotions as remarkable heroes launch a longshot attempt at rescue. A fun, engaging read sure to keep you entertained. Five stars!”
