Vigilante, Book 1
On the planet now known as High Tortuga, the mine workers are far too close to being slaves so the ruler of the planet shut them down.

…Some people never learn.
Warden, Book 3
Barnabas has uncovered one of the biggest players in this sector, the Yennai Corporation.
Now he’s in for a surprise – it turns out that the alien who’s been pulling the strings against him is none other than Uleq, the Torcellan who escaped Bethany Anne’s clutches.

Mia Jennings isn’t a normal girl. She knows there’s something different about her because she keeps seeing things. That would be fine but she just wants to be normal.

Factor in a fae bounty hunter and a cute boy supporting her, she might just have enough friends at her side to learn how to use her natural gifts and discover the truth about who she is.

But Amanda is hot on his heels, and with Tangel’s help, plans to end Morden’s destructive rampage forever.
When Amanda hears that Morden has returned, she fears what the Reaver might be up to.
She follows him back across the multiverse, and goes in search of Tangel.
Although neck deep in her own problems, Tangel agrees to help her universe hopping friend.

Full of universe-hopping action and adventure, the worlds of Tangel and Amanda collide in this pulse-pounding third installment of Quantum Legends.

Tori Karacis’s family line may trace back to a drunken liaison between the god Pan and one of the immortal gorgons.
Or…maybe it’s just coincidence that her glance can, literally, stop men in their tracks. While her fear of heights kept her out of the family aerobatic troupe, her extreme nosiness fits right in with her uncle’s P.I. business.
Except he’s disappeared on an Odyssean journey to find himself. Muddling through on her own, she’s reduced to hunting (not stalking, because that would just be weird) brass-bra’d Hollywood agent Circe Holland to deliver a message…only to witness her murder by what looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Suddenly, all of her family’s tall tales seem believable, especially when Apollo—the Apollo, who’s now hiding out among humans as an adult film star—appears in her office, looking to hire her. She knows the drill: canoodling with gods never works out well for humans, but she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Maybe it’s her genes. Maybe not.
Given her conflicted feelings for one hot and hardened cop, it’s a toss-up which will kill her quickest. The danger at her door…or her love life.
Set in Shanghai and Seattle, Calculated is a gritty, modern day blend of the Count of Monte Cristo and Mission Impossible.
She has many names – Octavia, Double 8, Phoenix, Josephine. She’s a math prodigy, a calculating genius and everyone wants her.
In seventeen-year-old Jo River’s complicated world of numbers, there’s no such thing as coincidence. When she is betrayed by someone she loves, kidnapped by the world’s most wanted smuggler, and forced to use her talent to shore up a criminal empire, Jo deems her gift a curse—until she meets Red.
Fellow captive and unlikely sage, Red teaches Jo to harness her true potential, so she can do more than just escape. Before he dies, Red reveals a secret about her enemies and makes her vow to right his wrongs. But Jo has a vow of her own.
With help from Chan, a bitter billionaire, and Kai, his off-limits son, Jo rises into a new role, ready to take down those who ruined her life. Until a mathematical error comes back to haunt her with a threat much more dangerous than the criminals on the loose.
To beat the odds, Jo must decide who she really is and if risking everything is worth it.
After all, history is not made—it’s calculated.
With themes of revenge and forgiveness, loss and identity, brainpower versus brutality, and the triumph of right over might, it will resonate with readers everywhere.

Book 1: Druid’s Dance (newly revised/edited edition)
Elijah Wadsworth lost his parents and twin sister in what he thought was little more than a tragic accident. But five years later, when Elijah begins manifesting strange abilities–which he neither understands nor can control–he discovers his family has been at the center of a cosmic battle for centuries… and his family’s death was likely no accident at all. A mysterious “girl in black” with dark, magical abilities pursues him, hoping to lure him to her cause.

Capernica is invaded!
Far from the war zone, the Wolvics have launched a surprise attack while the Confederation Army and Navy are engaged in other fronts, and it is up to those on the planet to hold off the invaders until the Confederation forces can respond.
This trilogy contains three such stories of people responding to the call.
Book 1: Conscientious Objector
A young conscientious objector is conscripted into the provisional planetary militia. But how can he carry a rifle and still uphold his convictions?
As a religious refugee, Harris Taymon knows he owes a deep sense of loyalty to Capernica, but can he bear arms against the enemy with intent to kill?
And if he doesn’t, can he survive his own side where desertion and cowardice are punished by execution?
Book 2: POG
Brand new boot Second Lieutenant Cel Wysoki is home on leave while awaiting logistics officer school when Capernica is invaded. She has no unit yet and not a clue as to how the Army functions.
More than that. She is a POG, a “Person Other than Grunt,” a “desk-jockey-in-training.”
Link up with the local garrison 100 klicks away? Surrender and wait out the war? Hide out in the mountains and hope for the best?
The Army doesn’t care that she has no training. They have one code: soldiers always prosecute the war to the best of their abilities.
Does she even have the capability to attempt that?
Book 3: Veteran
Old soldiers are supposed to sit in the bar, drink with their buddies, and tell war stories.
But when invaders invade, veterans do what they’ve got to do.
Master Sergeant Lester Arceneaux (Retired), a disabled vet, is long into his golden years, too old even to be conscripted into the planetary militia.
But when the enemy rolls over the local forces, he must run to the sound of gunfire if his wife and neighbors can have even a small chance to survive.
His heart and mind are willing, but are his old bones up to the task?
BONUS CONTENT: this trilogy contains previously-unpublished bonus content that wraps up the events of the three included novellas.

Soldiers of Freedom:
The WWII Story of Patton’s Panthers and the Edelweiss Pirates
Winner American Fiction Best Book Awards and Readers’ Favorite Book Awards
SOLDIERS OF FREEDOM is the true story of the 1944-1945 War in Western Europe and the final Allied struggle to conquer Nazi Germany. The story is told through the eyes of William McBurney, a tank gunner in the 761st Tank Battalion, the first African-American tank unit in U.S. history; dynamic General George S. Patton, Jr., commander of the U.S. Third Army; and Angela Lange, a sixteen-year-old German resistance fighter with the anti-Nazi Edelweiss Pirates in Cologne. While Patton’s forces liberate France and Belgium, fight in the grueling Battle of the Bulge, and cross the Rhine to conquer Germany, U.S. tanker William McBurney and his Black Panthers must fight two wars at once: one against the German army, the other against the racism of their fellow white soldiers. Meanwhile, as the Allies drive into Germany, Edelweiss Pirate Angela Lange must survive the Allied bombing of Cologne while she engages in fierce resistance against the Hitler Youth and Nazis and is hunted down by the Gestapo.
Fans of Beneath A Scarlet Sky, Adam Makos’s Spearhead and A Higher Call, and the WWII novels of Ken Follett (Winter of the World, Jackdaws, Eye of the Needle) will enjoy the real-life heroism of the 761st Black Panthers and legendary Patton to liberate Europe, and the Edelweiss Pirates to combat Nazism, in this historically accurate tale of the final epic struggle in WWII Western Europe.
