About Edge of Sundown
When dystopian fiction becomes real…
Val Haverford’s Sci-Fi and Western novels made him a household name. But that was then. A decade of creative stagnation and fading health has left him in the literary wilderness.
Attempting to end his dry spell and secure his legacy, Val pens a dystopian conspiracy theory set in a tangential universe where alien invaders eliminate ‘undesirables’ perceived as drains on society.
But as he digs deeper into violence plaguing his adopted home of Chicago, he discovers unsettling similarities between his work in progress and a life he thought he left behind. Soon he finds his fictional extremists are not only real—they’re intent on making sure his book never sees the light of day.
As he pieces together haunting truths about his city and his motives, Val realizes his last chance to revive his career and reconcile the past could get him—and the people he loves—killed.
Will he make the right choice? Or will it be too late?
Edge of Sundown is a provocative story that shows how the desperation of lost opportunity can lead to drastic and unexpected consequences.

Jennifer works at an academic library, hidden away in a back office (intermittently, depending on Chicago’s ‘Rona status). She’s the world’s slowest writer, can’t possibly name just one favorite band or movie, is obsessed with medicine and eats too much cheese.
She’s still trying to turn her kitty into a lap cat. After 7 years she hasn’t given up, although success seems impossible. However, Tallulah’s graduated to headbutts and electric tail swats, so things could be worse.
Though progress is incremental at this point, Jenny’s still plugging away at the next novel and a collection of short stories and essays, and two more shorts before the end of the year, lest she lose a bet.
