Books by Jesse Michaels

This, the first of the Barnacle Split Editions, features two stories, one by Jesse Michaels, one by Sam McPheeters.

Jesse Michaels’ “Make No Mistake” revolves around the story of a young man whose chance encounter with a woman in a therapist’s office tips off an unhinged adventure that completely changes his perspective on life.

Sam McPheeters’ “Sophisticated Devices” takes on the prison system, following a man released from prison navigating a world that is hostile to him and his past. After 18 years, Sheldon “Chang” Chanfeld is a free man. But the world has changed since his 2010 conviction. For a registered sex offender, civilian life may be more dangerous than doing time. And with a fellow predator to be stopped, Chang is quickly running out of options.
