Agnes and Cat ...

dark fantasy novella, 2021


Ten-year-old Agnes lives in a house of monsters. Her father fights the beasts upstairs, tiny fairies feed her mother sickly berries, evil demons inhabit her stuffed animals and even more prowl in the garden, but... she's best friends with the one under her bed. 


Cat is ghastly with long yellow teeth and white eyes, but he protects her from the others. 


However, when the little girl next door is taken by the twin terror. Agnes and Cat must fight the monsters in order to save her. Yet, the mystic beats that inhabit Agnes' crumbling apartment building are not all that they seem.
