A legion of demons and imps overrun the city of Trebridge.
But Gillen, leader of the four gargoyle guardians, has more problems than the invading demons. One of his squad plots to usurp his command. With St. Edmund's church--the sanctuary that guards the only known portal from the demon world into city-- scheduled for destruction to make way for high-rise condos, Gillen must decide whom to fight. The demons or his rival.
Dare he ask the angel commanders for reinforcements and prove his incompetence?
A short story set in the world of Andor and the inspiration for the book, There Be Demons, to be published by The Grumpy Dragon in 2014. If you enjoy this free story, please review it. Even a couple of sentences will do. Thanx.

About the Author
Fantasy has been part of my life since I can remember, starting with a fantasy playmate who kept me company while I was locked on the front porch with my toys. My brother, Jerry, still hasn't forgiven me for naming my friend Jerome. Yeah, my mother was a copycat.
My formal introduction to fantasy came with the discovery of the Oz books. I read every one I could find, even if they were larger than the other books brought to our school from the library. I became a serious book buyer when I discovered my dad's army/navy store sold used paperbacks, including authors like A. L. Merritt, Andre Norton, and C. L. Moore--plus my favorite of favorites Leigh Brackett.
Now, I write fantasy about snarly elves, the Half-Elven of the Far Isles, or humans fighting invading demons in Andor.
