Brave Fortune

The Alchemist meets the Prince of Darkness… In a dark world where dreaming is forbidden, one man dares to dream the impossible.

When John Crowe, the jaded son of a fallen alchemist abandons his father’s mission to save the world, and instead risks all on a quest to find Solomon’s treasure, his dream turns into a nightmare.

The sorcerer Lord Leonard, the wicked Queen Nekbhet, and global financier Sir Wilbur, form an unholy trinity to cast a dark spell on Crowe’s soul and planet Maerdon to enslave the people.

Caught in a web of sorcery, treachery and deceit, Crowe learns of the trinity’s secret society, Sancta Calva (Order of the Holy Skull), and its sinister plot to use him as a pawn in a cosmic battle between the forces of good and evil to rule over heaven and hell.

With the help of Archangel Metatron, Crowe must now learn to summon the alchemical magic of Solomon he once scorned to defeat the triad and free his people, or risk becoming a shrunken skull on the Queen’s necklace of death, to serve the Dark Lord’s scheme.

Brave Fortune is a fantasy adventure novel that serves as an allegory of alchemy, transmuting base metal lead into gold, a transformational heroic journey through the trial-by-fire purification of suffering, struggle and sacrifice.

Alessia’s father, Ben, set out two years ago to uncover another species’ reference to a ‘solution’ to the big crunch problem – but never returned.

Using this power to travel instantaneously through space, humans have spread through their corner of the galaxy and coalesced into two groups: the Coalition and the Inner Cluster. They are held in an uneasy economic and cultural relationship by their reliance on each other, the Coalition with the technology of the Source and the Inner Cluster with the materials to make it a usable form of energy.

Lives Of E

cover

It can be hard to accept something as real when you’re convinced it’s not.

Erik had never heard of quantum computers. He had no interest in that sort of thing. When a woman he isn’t interested in tries to seduce him during dinner, his best mate mentions that he is building one. Desperate to escape the awkward situation, Erik insists on seeing the prototype.

That turns out to be a really bad idea.

A series of unfortunate events ends with Erik getting electrocuted. Subsequently, his life starts changing in every conceivable way, starting with him waking up in bed next to the woman he was trying to avoid the night before. Convinced that he went to sleep alone, Erik begins to doubt his ability to trust his own mind. Each new day is worse, presenting him with a completely different life every morning—subtle changes at first, although soon they veer to the extreme. Reality as he knows it becomes warped beyond all recognition.

Has he lost his mind? Is he living with multiple personalities? Or is this a never-ending lucid dream of alternate lives? Erik’s quest to understand what’s happening to him turns out to be nowhere near as difficult as finding a way to make it stop.

Shadow Vanguard Boxed Set

cover

Don’t dump the cargo – I paid for it fair and square with money I stole!

And so begins the saga of Jack Marber, former Special Assault Marine and his alien band of traders as they cross the galaxy doing the only job that doesn’t leave them homeless.

Gravity Storm:

“I need eyes and ears in every system that would benefit the Federation. One way to do that is for the Free Traders of this universe to work for me…”Nathan Lowell

Nathan has a mission and is willing to pay handsomely for Jack’s time. If only Jack will represent the Federation that kicked him out of the service for what was Jack’s fault.

He’s not sure they should trust him, although he likes it.

His two-legged Yollin partner is trying to learn the English side of the Galactic Common language, but that doesn’t always work out so well.

Adina is a member who Nathan wants on the team. No one is sure of her, not even Adina.

A storm is rising and the misfits of the Fortitude have no choice but to fight it.

Lunar Crisis:

The Shadows have been blooded and survived. There was no time for celebration as their next mission came upon them like a gangster in the night.

Or missiles out of the blue.

Captain Jack Marber, the Yollin Tc’aarlat, and Adina Choudhury take the ICS Fortitude to the moons of Taglen. They have to figure out what’s going on before they can fix it, all the while they are the target of an unknown entity who wants them dead.

No matter the cost. As Tc’aarlat might say, “Don’t put all your eggs in one bastard.”

Slave traders, murderers, thieves, and con men find themselves in the crosshairs of the Shadows. Join the misfits as their intelligent ship rockets them into the middle of it all.

Immortality Curse:

Following a slew of dangerous missions, the Shadows are looking forward to an easier assignment – conveying official condolences to the mourning monarch of an allied planet.

They should be so lucky.

How far would you go to mourn a lost love?

Twisted by grief, the queen has tasked her top scientists with finding a cure for death itself, so that no one else must suffer like she has. But, when the cure is accidentally unleashed upon the world, her subjects discover there are some fates worse than death.

Add to the mix a trio of unruly hawk chicks, a movie-mad android, and a stonemason with an unhealthy obsession with sledgehammers – and you’ve got a mission the team would gladly exchange for a return to the front line.
