History That Never Was

An audio version of a steampunk story!

The very first story that I published was “The Recondite Riddle of the Rose Rogue,” back in 2010. It’s been reprinted a few times since then, and now, it’s available in audio format as well!

This is a story with two young girls as protagonists (age 9 and 12), and it’s a very kid-friendly story, so you can listen to it with small ones around! The story was originally written due to the young daughter of a friend of mine mishearing “botanical garden” as “mechanical garden,” so it was written in large part for her. She’s a teenager now,┬ádespite the fact that in my mind, she will always be the three-year-old who saw my Halloween costume and said “it’s another beautiful princess!”

The protagonists from this story also appear in my novella, The Trouble with the Tick-Tock Tabby, where they get into substantially larger adventures!
