Publisher info

As writers, our primary goals are to connect with our readers, make an impression and share ideas.

We set up BraeVitae a few years ago as a way to bring some of our writing to the public. We hope you enjoy these short stories and novellas.

We're presently working on finding a publisher for our first novel, while we outline and write the second.

Smashwords book reviews by BraeVitae

  • The Ugly Kids on Feb. 12, 2013

    I love Lily in this story because she’s not afraid to be herself and make her own decisions. She’s tough, smart and resourceful. No matter how alone and freakish you may feel, there’s always somewhere where you will be loved, respected and appreciated for who you are.
  • The New Guy In Moon Base Twelve on Feb. 13, 2013

    This story is all about character and what wonderful characters they are! Even the New Guy shines in his own way. I was sad to see it end, though I like the way the central mystery of the story was handled. I hope Tom cooks up some more adventures for these plucky, and very Zen, colonists.
