Last Days and Times

Mankind rushes toward apocalypse in 2012. Fundamentalists and new age thinkers of all stripes are convinced the world will end on the last day of the 5000-year Mayan Great Cycle. Leveraging that hysteria, Arthur Davidson, a radio evangelist, rises to prominence while promising salvation through him alone. But Davidson guards a startling secret, one that drives him to force the Bible’s apocalyptic prophesies to fruition. He procures ten tactical nuclear weapons stolen from a Russian Army facility and attempts to use them to bring about the end of all time.

Harmonic RES

Harmonic resonance: noise into music, words into literature. Harmonic RES is nine stories in many genres exploring the small truths of who we are as human beings, of why we are here and why we matter. From science fiction to satire, from military fiction to romantic comedy, from short stories to long novellas, Harmonic RES speaks with a unified voice on the enduring question of human nature.

Coming Soon – Isis Wept

Millennia ago, before the rise of the great kingdoms of man, gods walked among mortals as we walk among the beasts of the Earth. From this age comes the most nobel of all love stories, that of Isis and Osiris, immortal king and queen in Abydos, Lower Egypt. osiris is betrayed and murdered by his brother Set, who craves all Osiris owns, especially his beautiful life goddess of a wife. Set usurps Osiris’s kingdom and sates his desires in an unwilling Isis, but he has not won in treachery what his delusions assert. Isis focuses all her considerable power to finding the body of her murdered love and returning him to life to exact retribution upon his killer. In the course of this quest, kingdoms fall, armies clash, and the balance of power between gods and men is altered forever.
