About Jamie Ferguson
I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. We moved around a lot when I was little, so I can easily pin down my age based on where we lived, which means I was maybe 6 when I first made this proclamation. My writing has changed quite a bit over the years, although I am still proud of the short story I wrote in 8th grade about an orangutan named Inconspicuous.
My writing focuses on characters. I've created stories about ghosts, clones, monsters, escape artists, mermaids, circus performers ... I'm all over the map. But in every single story I do my utmost to get into the minds and hearts of my characters. I love to put them in awful situations to see how they feel, and how they think. I want them to agonize over their choices, and I want what they choose - or don't choose - to matter. I want the reader to feel joy when a character succeeds, and to cry when they don't - just like I do when I'm writing the story.

A fierce host rides across the winter sky at night
In wild pursuit of whoever crosses their path
Peals of thunder follow the horses as they gallop through the clouds
Fire flashing from their hooves
The baying of the hounds echoes across the sky
Their sharp teeth glinting in the light of the moon
The Huntsman blows his horn, and the Fae ride behind him
Their faces both beautiful and terrible to behold
When the nights are long and the winter winds howl, stay inside
Lest you cross the path of the Hunt...and become their prey
The Wild Hunt contains thirteen stories based on the wide and varied folklore of the Wild Hunt. In some tales, the leader of the hunt is Odin; in others it’s King Arthur, Herodias, or Herne the Hunter. Sometimes the riders are Fae; sometimes they are specters, or skeletons, or strange beasts never before seen by mortal eyes.
But no matter who the hunters are, you definitely don’t want to be the one they’re after...
Let the Wild Hunt begin!
Enter the world of Faerie!
The summer sun bathes the earth in warmth and light,
Faeries dance under the moon at night.
Cross through the portal into a land ancient, beautiful, and wild.
See the wonders that enticed the stolen child.
Come away, O reader! To the Realm of Faerie.
But if you want to make it back home, you had better be wary…
This collection includes twenty tales of faeries and magic set in our world–and in others.
Jump into the waves, and enter the world of Faerie!
On a rock by the shore sits a mermaid fair
Dreaming of her lost lover as she combs her hair
Kelpies, and selkies, and the great snakes of the sea
All stop and listen as she sings of a love never to be
For the sailor she saved from those dark, storm-tossed waves
Got back on his ship, and sailed away
Now the mermaid's alone, with broken-hearted dreams
And far, far away the sailor stares out at the sea
Fifteen stories about mermaids, kelpies, and other magical water creatures.
What if the Loch Ness monster is more than a myth?
Where did the Lady of the Lake go after leaving Avalon?
Can a mermaid ever truly leave the sea, and follow her lover to land?
This collection includes fifteen tales about sirens, kelpies, mermaids, sea monsters, naiads, and other enchanted creatures of the water.
Enjoy the magic and wonder of these watery tales of Faerie!
What if you followed a path through a city park, and found yourself in another land? What if the archway you just passed is really a portal to Faerie? What if the guardian of an opening into our world has perished, and left the doorway unattended?
If you catch a glimpse of the Faery Queen
Consider whether you should remain unseen
If you come across a faery ring
Listen to the wind laugh, and murmur and sing
But beware, for if you enter the world of the Fae
You may have no choice but to stay...
Walk through the doorway and into sixteen different worlds of magic and enchantment.

Look for MONSTER ROAD TRIP…and wear your shades!
Have you ever spent long sleepless nights sitting awake and pondering over the obvious anti-werewolf properties of the Lone Ranger's silver bullets?
Have you ever felt that deep-seated conviction that all that the story of the gunfight at OK Corral really needed to make its innate dramatic structure truly perfect was a pack of wandering zombies?
Then you might be seriously addicted to the weird wild west.
Comprised of FOUR complete novels, two novellas, and eight individual short stories I guarantee that you will enjoy this bundle of some of the weirdest and wildest western tales that you could shake a rattlesnake at.
