Dead Zero

Taking Grandpa to the mall wasn’t supposed to be a life or death (and after death) situation. Thom Sheldon avoids visiting his aging father as much as he possibly can. Even now that Rick started taking a new experimental drug that seems to be helping his Alzheimer’s, it’s still an unpredictable and rarely pleasant errand. If Thom could avoid visiting his old man without getting guilt-tripped by his wife or hounded by his own conscience, he would. But today Thoms’ wife Carly and son Brendan are along for the ride, and there is no getting out of taking Rick to the mall. No one could have guessed that the zombie apocalypse would start near the food court. Except for Rick.

The Astral Hacker

“A twisting and thrilling cyberpunk novel with detailed and evolving characters!”

In 2120, New America is the world leader in technology and individual freedom. Why, then, has seventeen-year-old Fae Luna felt like an isolated prisoner her entire life? She survived the worst of the foster care system by honing her skills as a top-level hacker and thanks to the support of her humanoid robot, Sunny, who is illegally upgraded to a human-level AI. Finally, she’s matched with a foster mom who treats her kindly. Fae slowly lets her guard down until a suspicious tragedy tears them apart. With no flesh-and-blood friends, she is forced to call Blaze, a guild-mate from her online holo-game, who introduces her to a motley crew of rebels and loyalists. When they dig into Fae’s mystery, they discover a far-reaching and deadly conspiracy. Fae promised her dying mother she would never alter her body with a brain implant, but with the Evo, her hacking skills would be unbeatable. Lethal battles and devastating consequences will challenge her vow. Will Fae choose the enhancement or trust her own exceptional mind to defeat a secretive and powerful force threatening all New Americans?

Wanderer’s Escape (Bargain Book)

The Empire will kill him for stealing this ship… but they have to catch it first!


To the Empire the Wanderer was just another booby-trapped ship to claim, and Jess was just another worthless slave who could be sacrificed in the process.
Things didn’t go to plan.  Jess survived the dangers, and when he sat in the pilot’s chair the ancient ship came to life for the first time in centuries.
Acting on instinct Jess seized the chance, firing up the engines and fleeing the Imperial forces.
Now Jess and the ancient self-aware ship are on the run, their freedom and their very existence on the line.
The smart thing to do would be to run like hell and never stop, but Jess finds he can’t ignore pleas for help from those in danger.  With the powerful Wanderer at his command he can truly make a difference… but at what cost?
Get Wanderer’s Escape now and see why tens of thousands of people have loved following the Wanderer’s journey, leaving comments including “In the end, I was gripping the arms of my chair as I rooted for the heroes.”, “A fast-paced, can’t-put-it-down Sci-fi.” and “One of the best books I’ve read this year.”

Beyond Soylent Green 2050

cover

The story predicts the future of the USA in the year 2050. In the age of flying cars and 3D holographic telephones, the Union of the United States will radically change, producing winners, and losers – by the millions, the latter largely the underrepresented and the vulnerable. “Beyond Soylent Green 2050” predicts the outcome in stark terms, the consequence of years of broken government and partisan conflict. Be forewarned: the story is an adventure of surprises and events that may shock readers. Some will argue it is not science fiction at all, but a realistic depiction of what lies ahead for the USA.
