“Dark and creepy things, lots of action, plenty of mystery.” -Glenn

My name is Mike Raven, and the weird and supernatural are my life. Monsters murdered my parents when I was eight. Turns out my folks were paranormal investigators and Hell always settles its debts. Naturally I decided to join the family business.

For two decades I’ve studied the occult and traveled the world hunting nightmares. Vampires. Shifters. Demons. Wraiths. I’ve faced them all. But my greatest challenge still lay ahead…

From the moment Celeste stepped into my office, I knew she was in trouble. Black magic trouble. Her father had promised her soul to a powerful demon on the day she was born. Now, twenty-one years later, the forces of darkness were gathering to collect their long-awaited prize.

Guess who’s about to pick a fight with the Devil himself?

Crazy in Paradise:

Dying in the middle of the summer in the Florida Keys is sweaty business.

Welcome to Tarpon Cove. Madison Westin has inherited her aunt’s beachfront motel in the Florida Keys. Trouble is she’s also inherited a slew of colorful tenant’s – drunks, ex-cons, and fugitives.

Only one problem: First, she has to wrestle control from a conniving lawyer and shady motel manager. With the help of her new best friend, whose motto is never leave home without your Glock, they dive into a world of blackmail, murder, and drugs.

Deception in Paradise:

Madison Westin is back!! The Florida Keys are hotter than ever.

With Madison’s never-say-no style she’s smarter and packing an attitude not to mention her Glock.

This time, trouble rolls into Tarpon Cove in the form of Madison’s ex-husband, Jackson Devereaux, whom she hoped to never see again. His arrival brings unparalleled chaos and an uninvited corpse.

Teaming up with her hot friend, Fabiana, the two women go from chasing the usual cast of misfits and weirdos to hunting down a murderer. The action turns deadly serious when they stir up a nasty enemy as they try to stay one-step ahead in a game of cat and mouse that threatens their lives.

Trouble in Paradise:

What is big news in small town Tarpon Cove? An accidental drowning or perhaps a ruthless murder? When a dead fisherman rolls up on shore, Madison cannot resist jumping into her new role as Private Investigator. But she soon discovers the people in The Cove who normally gossip about everybody’s business are unusually tight-lipped.

The bad tenant radar still not working, the cottages continue to be full of riffraff. Madison gets arrested, shot at, and outsmarted. She teams up with her best friend – the Glock carrying Fabiana. Together they take on cases no other investigators would ever touch!

Rezzia, a small village in Cisalpine Gaul.

Fourteen year old Arlus dreams of leaving behind his abusive stepfather and joining the legions as a cavalry officer.

But when a tax collector from Rome rolls into town, a chain of dramatic and violent events leave Arlus begging for his life.

To save her son, the boy’s mother is forced to admit who his father really is: the Dictator of Rome, Julius Caesar.

In an instant, Arlus’ life is altered forever.

Seeing the potential for profit, the tax collector Maxinius takes Arlus to Rome in a bid to have him recognised by Caesar as his son and heir.

Thrown into a whirlwind of politics, alliances and Patrician society, Arlus prepares to meet his father.

But the day set for Arlus to meet Caesar is the fateful Ides of March, and his meeting with the great ruler doesn’t go quite as planned: his father is murdered before his eyes by traitors within the Senate.

Suddenly in even more danger than before, Arlus is forced to flee.

As Rome prepares for civil war in the wake of Caesar’s assassination, Arlus returns home to a conflict of his own: a mob of bandits threaten Rezzia, and Arlus must muster every ounce of his strength and cunning to defeat them and save those he loves.

But will he be able to live up to his father’s reputation?

‘Caesar’s Son’ is a gripping coming of age story of courage, adventure and first love, set against the backdrop of the violent and politically volatile Roman world.

“Switched is a brilliant read that keeps you laughing, and sighing, and frustrated, and loving it!” —Rachel Schieffelbein, author

Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.

Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.

Millions of years from now, the planet is dying. The oceans have dried into plains of ash. Strange, lethal creatures ravage the land. The surviving pockets of humanity eke out a brutal existence.

But some humans have also evolved—into Magi, men who can move objects with a mere thought, and Strigas, women who can control others’ minds. Once, Gorgons could do both, and were the rarest of all. But a devastating war eradicated the Gorgons, and their terrifying presence faded into legend.

Miri, a powerful Striga and the chosen protector of her village by the Great Silt Sea, is sworn to defend her people against attacks by raiders and monsters. But when a mysterious young boy is found near the wastes, her once familiar world shatters, and she and her allies must journey across an unforgiving planet in order to unravel a mystery surrounding the extinction of the Gorgons—one that could change everything they thought they knew.

Explore Dying World, a new dystopian science fiction series in the tradition of Jack Vance’s The Dying Earth, Gene Wolfe’s Book of the New Sun, Frank Herbert’s Dune and Star Wars—as only John Triptych could tell it!

“Who am I? You don’t need to know. I don’t tell anyone my name, not even with a sack over my head and a gun to my skull. Consider yourself lucky. If I told you who I am and why I’m in Detroit, I’d have to kill you. Why? Because that’s who I am… a killer.

What do I hope to achieve? Let’s just say that still breathing tomorrow is good enough. I’ve lied, cheated, and killed in nearly every city in the world. Detroit will be no different. Nothing stands in my way, because I’m ready to die. That’s my edge.

Did you buy all that? I used to. But I don’t know who I am any more. Not since I met her, anyway. People change. Maybe even me. Or maybe I’m lying to both of us.”
