About K.J. Shepherd
Kyle was born in Missouri but doesn’t remember it. He grew up in Texas and bounced around a bit before ending up back there, for better or worse. He spends his days hanging out with his daughter, Harper, reading and writing, playing video games, and obsessively listening to death metal (send some recommendations his way!). He has been writing most of his life, but only started submitting works in 2017.
He’s very excited to see where this writing journey takes him but probably plays too much Smash Bros to do it full-time. He's always changing his main, like a dumbass.

It Couldn't Happen Here by David J. West

The Spear of Destiny by Ryan Williamson
Magdalena, a young Mayan woman belonging to an order of demon-hunting priests, nuns, and monks is sent by the Vatican on a quest to recover the lost Spear of Destiny—the very lance that pierced the side of Christ.

To recover the spear, they must battle cultists, unholy beasts, and conquer a forgotten monastery possessed by an unimaginable evil.

Separated from the newly wed husband who promised to bring her back home, Penny is confined to a U.S. refugee camp miles from the militarized border on the Mississippi River. With the help of a mysterious stranger serving an unsavory patron, Penny makes a deal to get across and back to her husband and the rest of her family. What Penny doesn't realize is that the deal she made just might be with the devil.
