Welcome to Angel Stories – a collection of tales that explore the relationship between the spirit and the physical, the soul and eternity, life. . .death and the space that exists between them.
Some of these stories are intensely personal – some are drawn entirely from whole cloth. I will leave it up to you to figure out which.
It is my hope that in reading these tales you might find a thread, perhaps an echo, of these miraculous dynamisms in your own life, or in the lives of those you love or have loved you.

Dev shook his head, spitting out dust and rock chips. The last rays of the setting sun stained the ground crimson. "Betrayer," he murmured, ears still ringing from the terrific explosion, "we have a problem."
The cryptic message from Olympus changes everything... One moment Devcalion and Betrayer are free, climbing up Half Dome without a care in the world, the next they are dragged into battle with the Destroyer, Zeus's ancient foe.
The Dark Power is merciless, and time is running out. It's up to Dev and Tray to try to stop him, or the world of men and gods is doomed.
