Welcome to Cryptid World! We’re honored you’ve stopped by. This website is an ever-evolving vision of our love for cryptids, creatures, and creation. Mel is all about horror and the macabre. There’s a Rougarou running lose on her side of the office. Tammy is all about romance and happy endings. She’s helping a seventeen-year old cope with the fact she can’t stop her dad’s cancer or a dying breed of dog some call a blood-sucking Chupacabra.

Here are a few things you’ll find on the website:

  • Newsletter sign-up–the inside scoop on all the projects we’re working on, plus some cool articles on cryptids and creation. There’s also an ongoing novella called Catch Me If You Can. We add one new chapter each month (except December). 
  • Sometimes we blog about life and this crazy adventure we call … work? 
  • Cryptid of the Month–a monthly character design by Mel Ayers.
  • Some fiction and non-fiction stories.


Book Cover

A robot. A dream. An Adventure.
Why Regan’s friends expect her to stay behind when her parents move to China is a mystery. Seriously…pass up the adventure of living in another country? It’s only a year, then she’ll return for college … somewhere, studying … something.
British expat, Link, has life figured out. Fine-tune the robot’s glitches, win the Stanford scholarship, then secure a job with a major robotics company. Only a life-altering variable could mess up his dream.
Or a pretty neighbor. Regan’s outgoing, smart, and fun, but fun isn’t in the plan. Besides, his best friend is into her and has connections to supply her the adventure she desires.
Until the robot disappears. Link enlists Regan’s help to find it, but neither are prepared for the secrets they uncover. And their only plan for the future? Don’t to get caught.


Read for free. Story and links to previous chapters are found in the newsletter. Thank you so much for stopping by. We hope you’ll check back often for updates.

Take Care,

T. S. Mart and Mel
