Author has written 11 stories for Young Adult, and General.

Hello, dear visitor. If you're looking for mystery stories that span multiple parts, you've come to the right amateur writer!

My stories here focus on a young man named Aidan Lonsdale who discovers in college a gift for puzzle-solving and cracking cases. His adventures are broken up into three series: the St. Ciaran's Chronicles, the San Diego Chronicles, and the White Crow Chronicles.

All three series are made up of smaller stories, and every entry within their respective "Chronicle" builds off one another to form a larger narrative. While each entry can stand on its own, I encourage all interested readers to take the series (and the entries within those series) in order. Don't worry about not knowing which order to read them in. I'll lay it all out below!

To anyone who's into this sort of thing, all three Chronicles have their own playlists.

SERIES #2: The San Diego Chronicles

Summary: Aidan's accomplishments at St. Ciaran's have netted him an internship as an investigator with the San Diego branch of the FBI. After only one day on the job, he regrets taking the internship; he suffers a severe bout of homesickness, and digging into white collar crime bores him out of his mind. He wants to go back to hunting dangerous criminals and cracking high-stakes cases. Aidan gets his wish when the body of a rising star in the California justice system is found on the shore of Ocean Beach overnight. But investigating this murder will put Aidan on a collision course with a different case -- one that will push his skills and his spirit to the breaking point.

SERIES #3: The White Crow Chronicles

Summary: Three years have passed since the end of his internship, and Aidan has sworn off a career in law enforcement forever. Instead, he's settled for working at a private investigation agency, willing to assist any client who needs help with a matter that they can't or won't trust to the police. But Aidan's routine of comfort comes to an end one night when a new client calls him with a mysterious assignment. Aidan's boss hears the price the client is willing to pay and orders him to take her case. The assignment sends Aidan down a deep, dangerous rabbit hole, forcing him to re-enter the dark world he'd tried so hard to escape.
