The Eterna Files

It’s sixteen years after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the United States and England are in an arms race, but it has nothing to do with bombs or guns.  This race is for the secret of immortality.  Each country has teams of scientists, theorists and spiritualists working feverishly to decode the ultimate secret: how to cheat death itself.  Both teams have suffered the loss of their key scientists at virtually the same time.  Is this intercontinental espionage or something more nefarious at work?

The Americans are headed up by the feisty medium Clara Templeton who faces the loss of her lover among the other various quandaries...

Little Red Riding Hoodie

24797762Bullies. Friends. Boys. Shakespeare. Demonic Dogs. Evil Spirits. You know, Sixth Grade.

Sixth grade is hard enough. When the school bully is on your case because you got the lead in the play instead of her, when the cutest boy in the whole class might actually like you but never makes a move, and when your dad is an alcoholic and you have to cook, clean, and take care of your little brother, the last thing you need is more trouble.

But Sally Prescott has more trouble than she ever imagined when she starts having strange dreams of demonic dogs, magical keys, and a wolf-headed spirit bent on her destruction. Her best friend knows a secret that may help, but she refuses to tell, claiming Sally made her promise not to.

Garrick Tremaine was happy with a simple life as a soldier. But a mysterious dream has drawn him to Twin Falls, where the duke has died with no heir.

The Sword and the Sorcerer

20596089He wanted his father’s love. What he got instead will change the world.

Gothemus Draco – world’s most powerful sorcerer – is dead. Locked away in his tower are the tools for total domination of every city-state in the Known World. The person who possesses them can become a king, and everyone, it seems, has a claim – his warlord brother, the fairy from whom he stole a powerful artifact, even the sorceress who murdered him.

But the man who shaped the balance of power through wizardry isn’t done playing games with world politics. Just because Gothemus is dead doesn’t mean he doesn’t still have plans. Against all understanding, his magic lives on after his demise, preventing anyone from breaking into the tower.

Meanwhile, he’s left a gift for his son Calibot – Wyrmblade...
