Love, lust, ownership, exploration, and coming-of-age in a strange and novel world hidden beneath the known.
This site is an archive for a serialized story which posted from 2009-2012. The story is complete, but I will still post bonus material if I receive donations or subscriptions!
Addergoole contains mature themes and is intended for mature, adult readers. Some content is not suitable for younger audiences or the particularly squeamish. Sexual overtones are pervasive, and although it is fundamentally a light-hearted tale, there are moments of graphic violence and torture. The sexual content can be explicit and sometimes contains rape or incest.
Book One follows three students as they fall down the hole into another world, slipping beneath the surface of the normal world. Fall Down the Adder’s Hole with them as they enter a strange, new school and discover just how much they don’t know about themselves, their parents, or their world.

What a beta reader has said about Addergoole:
Most young adult fiction is for young adults; filled with vampire boys who are pretty, and kind, and love you as you are, pure, and perfect.
About Wizards whose first love is magic for its own sake, who are young, yet masters of their passions; witches who feel only happiness, and use their magic for good, who think of you as a brother.
Does anyone recognize these players from their play?
Does anyone remember actually being a young adult?
Does anyone remember the first time they knew their body was not in control? How about your feelings, your passions?
This is not young adult fiction for the young; this is young adult fiction for those who remember what it felt like to really be a young adult.
So take their beauty, their power, their desire, and their passion. Only place them not in a safe world, where there is a clear view of right and wrong, where wizards are taught in high castles, and young girls can trust the predator at their side to leave them chaste. Take them and place them in our world,
Where people don’t get along.
Where it’s a friend who despises you most,
Where things fall apart,
and a teenaged boy learns to hate because a girl winked at his friend first.
Now give them magic,
and make them awkward in it, like a girl who drops her books,
Or the clumsy boy in his growing body.
And fill their lives with privilege,
And their hearts with love,
And let them fight for control over the children who would be Gods.
