Praise for Ordinary Souls


"At times moving, amusing, terrifying, and disturbing, Ordinary Souls is a powerful collection of stories that not only entertain, but illuminate the often contradictory nature of what it means to be human. Read it."
-
Matthew Howe, author of Waypoint


"...a stirring, multi-genre collection that ranges from clever and humorous to ominous and thought-provoking."
-
EJ Fisch, author of Dakiti


"Ordinary Souls is a chilling set of stories meant to frighten you a bit, but it’s also a compelling sampling of insights into the human condition and a fully satisfying read from beginning to end."
-
G. S. Jennsen, author of Starshine
