About Us

We are the Just-Us League, a group of friends dedicated to the craft of telling stories.We come from all over the world–America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

With different backgrounds, different styles of writing, and a variety of preferred genres, our fiction ranges from fantasy to sci-fi, from horror to romance, and more.

The one thing we have in common is storytelling. We bonded over our writing, and our love of putting words onto a page to entertain is what makes us truly happy.

We hope you enjoy our works–from short story anthologies to full-length novels. Immerse yourself in the worlds we create and the stories we tell…

Secrets in our Cities: A Paranormal Urban Fantasy Anthology

Buy Now On Amazon!

The real world and imagination collide in this international collection of paranormal urban fantasies.

Some cities are inhabited by lycanthropes: a werewolf-turned-private-eye takes on a kidnapping case that upsets his plans for a simple life; a vegetarian werewolf must join forces with a local pack to save their city; and a twenty-something lycan thinks she’s the scariest monster in town until she meets a necromancer.

Children are often the center of paranormal activity: a troop of Mountain Gals on a camping trip runs afoul of a witch; a high school outcast pairs up with an angel to guide ghosts to their final rests; a young fae intelligence agent is placed on his first undercover assignment at a high school; and a little girl rattles a zombie-run pub for supernatural clientele when she accidentally begins haunting it.

These young urbanites are more than they seem: a kindhearted girl changes her life forever when she offers shelter to an injured hellhound; a runty dragon dwells in the sewers plotting revenge while dreaming of reliable takeout; and an ordinary detective must team up with a young hotshot magician to solve a mysterious disappearance.

Step across the paranormal divide with these ten short stories, and you’ll never look at your hometown the same way again.
