A Dark fantasy from K.T. McQueen, The Moribund takes you on a quest into a new world with gods and demons, death and demigods.
A being older than the Gods, threatened by a Demigod promising mortals immortality
I have no idea where this story came from, but one day it was there, this character, waiting to come to life. A creature older than the Gods who wanted her story told, a creature that brings hope in your darkest hour.
Delve into a dark world where human lives are being manipulated by the demigods around them for amusement and profit. Is belief necessary for the survival of these beings, for their power to be great enough to alter our worlds or are they inevitably powerful. And what of their offspring, part human-part god, what of their power and ability? And who is responsible for their punishment when they go too far?
She visits before death to offer you a deal | The Moribund
A being older than the Gods, threatened by a Demigod promising mortals immortality, teams up with Death (her ex), an Out-of-Time Nurse, & the ghost of Sir Arthur to put a stop to the Demigod’s plan before all hope of an afterlife is stolen from the world.
Unwilling to get involved with the human world, The Moribund visits you before death to offer you the ideal next life, so when a nurse approaches her looking for a deal for her dying husband she is less than accomodating. But then they discover the husband’s soul wandering the hospital looking for a new body, and he isn’t the only soul looking to body-jump.
If the soul isn’t in the body then The Moribund won’t offer her deal and without the deal, she can’t satisfy her hunger. Will she revert to the way she fed before humans came into being or put a stop to the body-jumping before it becomes a bigger problem?
The thriller is not the usual genre from K.T. McQueen but with a degree in forensics and a masters in fire and major incident response it could be expected. Bad Habit is the first foray into a new genre.
Hired by a victim’s affluent father, a conflicted fixer must make a resurfaced serial killer her prey.
I woke up one morning with this idea in my head, almost the entire novel laid out from beginning to end in a vague form. I let it fester for a while, never writing the idea down at the first occurrence, and allowed it to mature. By the end of the day, I had an outline and ideas. And within a month I had the first draft.
But this story makes me nervous. A little afraid. Perhaps even out of my depth. And definitely very nervous of sharing it with the world. So give check it out and let me know what you think, but if you could whisper it that would be great 😉 I hope you enjoy it. I hope you want more. And I hope that eventually, Kayla can find the answers she needs.
Kayla is a Fixer with a Past she can’t Fix | Bad Habit
Hired by people willing to do whatever it takes, her biggest client, Mr King, is a very rich businessman with shady connections. His daughter is the only surviving victim of the serial killer, Phi-Xi, who was never caught.
Phi-Xi, has resurfaced and Mr King wants him to pay, no matter what it takes. Which means Kayla has to investigate the same murder scenes as her police officer ex, Cosh, who is eager to catch the serial killer his dead Uncle couldn’t. With a little help from Mr King’s connections, Cosh convinces his superiors to bring Kayla on board as a consultant.
Phi-Xi, on the other hand, is living his perfect life, beautiful wife, beautiful home, cushy well paying job, and a nice hobby to keep him entertained as he runs rings around the police.
As she begins to investigate Kayla starts to understand that Phi-Xi is talking to someone, if only they could work out who. And when Kayla finally puts the pieces together she must leave the police in her wake as she rushes to do what she’s paid to do before Phi-Xi vanishes again.
Some stories never make it to publication, others remain on the hard drive collecting time and perspective. I originally wrote this one for a charity book but it was deemed unsuitable (I wrote another instead). Recently coming across it again, I decided to offer it up for free -a sort of thank you for hanging out on my site. This is the only place it’s available. No email address, name, sacrifice to the Gods required. But if you feel like donating a coffee -there’s a Buy me a Coffee link 🙂
When her abuser puts her life on the line she has to do what is necessary to survive, but if she doesn’t leave will she be able to take drastic measures when it happens again?
A young woman with a promise to keep. Another with a curse to lift. And a werewolf looking for a new mate.
When Alice invited her friends, Sarah, Paul, and Dave to stay in her Grandmother’s Romanian farmstead they were expecting to take a break from studying and have a good time. Of course, that wasn’t the only reason Alice was there but her friends didn’t need to be involved in that. And she could happily show them where her family was from and the town where she had spent her summers without them ever suspecting anything. But then they meet the hunter, the werewolves catch their scent, and Sarah reveals a secret that could end her friendship with Alice and spell disaster for all of them.
This is the book that started out as a CryptTV/Inkshares comp entry & was a ScreenCraft Horror Competition 2018 as a Script (written by Catherine Hewitt)
A young woman returns with friends to the Romanian town where her family was attacked decades ago by werewolves and endeavours to end an ancient witches curse and save her ancestors and the town from more bloodshed.
It was, as it turns out, inevitable. Not inevitable because of some prophecy, despite there being a fortune telling, but inevitable because that’s how it was engineered.
I was part of somebody elses design.
I was carefully selected, convinced, pushed, prodded and cajoled into doing things I wouldn’t normally do. The government no longer had our best interests at heart and despite the attempts of The Following they were going ahead with their plans. I was totally against it of course but I wasn’t the rebellious type, well not until Tuesday anyway.
Tuesday is the first book in a novella series. The story of Bliss Cardigan and Chip, her ever present sidekick.
A solar flare explosion shoved the earth out of its accepted orbit and onto a new one, the government used this to keep the people dependant on them. After 100 years it was clear the government had new plans that didn’t just involve one city, but all cities. Not everyone thinks their plans are good, no matter the spin.
Bliss becomes both the saviour and the biggest threat but all she wants is to get some sleep and make sure her parents are okay.

Walter Ounce will send his army after her to retrieve the chip. He’s spent his entire career trying to find the perfect host to create an army of drones. Putting the chip in Bliss Cardigan’s brain was his first mistake, letting her escape was his second. He doesn’t intend to make another.
Bliss was created with the intention of taking someone out of their perfectly ordinary, comfortable, life and throwing them into chaos and seeing how they coped. She does rather well for someone who has never been out of the city walls.
