  • Herein are stories that have no unifying theme, no common genre, no overall plot; they are tales of the human condition in diverse settings: a few wrapped in satire and fantasy, some sprinkled with surprise and irony, and all of them reflecting the expanding social consciousness of our generation.
    These stories will make you ponder what makes us all human, why we do what we do, and what we might do to better ourselves as a race; they will make you think about how we live, where we live, and why we live.
    Stories attempt to express all that is in Man, and all that is above, below and around him; in these stories, you will find at least one Truth—that we are a complex people who are constantly searching for ways to live in peace, harmony and joy with each other.

  • Oscine is born with a hereditary illness that compels her parents to ignore and despise her; consequently, she grows up waiting for that one special person who will rescue her from loneliness and allow her to truly experience the world.
    She communes with Nature in ways that mystify those around her and is revered in her neighborhood and at school for her good deeds.
    Oscine eventually leaves home, becomes a nurse, marries, and has three children; yet it is a marriage without love, and her husband treats her as if she is a bondservant.
    And then she meets Abraham, a kind, caring doctor, and the two fall in love, but she vows never to leave her husband because she believes in the sanctity of marriage.
    Abraham consults with Eli, his best friend, a rich, handsome and charming rogue with the ladies, who tells him how to win over Oscine. But Abraham is unable to follow this advice.
    Meanwhile, the marriage between Heath and Oscine continues to disintegrate, and he begins to treat her worse than ever. Oscine still loves Abraham but now wants to stay in the marriage only for her children.
    Will Oscine leave a man who cares more for his precious cars than his own wife? Will Abraham take charge and rescue Oscine from a man who does not care about her physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual well-being the way he does?
    And what will happen to Eli as he observes this great love between Abraham and Oscine? Will he change his attitude that women are merely conquests, to be cast off once they are conquered, and give them the honor and respect they are due?
    This story is a tragedy, for anytime a man loves a woman who is not his own, there will be blood.

    Doubt is Book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy (ARC). Resist book 2 released in November 2014 is available for review. Among Us is a book series which delves into the world of the supernatural and how it intersects with the everyday lives of seemingly ordinary young people as catastrophic events on earth lead to the end of times. Among Us weaves the theme of a young man and woman, who while not fully understanding their ‘abilities’, are drawn together in their desire to find out the truth about the world they live in which is similar to themes used in J.J. Abrams’ TV shows Fringe and Lost.

    At 21 years old, Harry and Cristal are fresh out of university with their PhD’s. Labeled all their lives as being ‘weird’ and ‘geeky’, they find true friendships with other outcasts by playing online virtual reality games. Now they face the challenges trying to get used to their ‘adult’ identities. Harry Doubt, a genius programmer and creator of the popular online game ‘Truth Seekers’, has a personal mission of his own; to find his mother who went mysteriously missing while volunteering on a peacekeeping mission in Palestine. His gaming friends and followers inadvertently join in helping him find her; believing that they are on missions to find out what has happened to their own missing loved ones. During Harry’s missions, Cristal and the team of ‘Truth Seekers’ stumble upon things that make them doubt the reality of their own lives. As they get closer to the truth, they realize that there are spiritual forces among them both good and evil, but in learning this, they activate a chain of events that start the beginning of the ‘end of the world’ as they know it.

    Note: This is an ARC copy and the official book release in paperback is targeted for November 13, 2013.

  • Joaquin Bridger is a former soldier who settles in the town of Redwood, becomes a police officer, marries, and has a daughter. He and his family live there peacefully for ten years, and then tragedy strikes.
    His wife and daughter are killed in a confrontation with bank robbers, and he blames himself. He quits the police force and begins a wandering, aimless life around town, walking wherever he goes—silent, brooding, filthy. He exists like this for five years.
    The majority of people in town see him as a man who is mentally disabled. Few people dare bother him.
    Then one day, John Slaughter, the man who was responsible for the death of Joaquin’s family, comes back to this town. After robbing the bank with his fellow criminals, he kidnaps a young girl as he gets away. Joaquin recognizes the man, and gives chase. Thus, the tale begins.
    Slaughter is no ordinary criminal. He has bases of operation across the country, and he is involved in nefarious activities with foreign and domestic criminals. He never stays too long in one spot, making it extremely difficult for Joaquin to track him across the vast wilderness.
    Sylvia, the girl Slaughter kidnapped, is nearly nine years old when the story begins, and as she meets other girls who were also taken by Slaughter, she learns how to survive as she awaits rescue.
    Back in the town of Redwood, Sylvia’s mother, Juanita, does whatever she can to search for her daughter. She also knows that Joaquin is searching for Sylvia, and this brings her some comfort.
    Joaquin has been helped, from the beginning of the search, by two men who believe in him—a U.S. Marshal, and a police officer from Redwood.
    Joaquin searches for the child across several Western states. As he tracks Slaughter, he also deals with the loss of his wife and daughter, and his failed life the last five years.
    Along the way, as he regains the rich frontier heritage of his forefathers by learning to co-exist peacefully with Nature, he meets a big man called the Giant. It is the Giant who teaches Joaquin how to live in peace and harmony with oneself; it is the Giant who teaches Joaquin simply how to live.

  • Margaret C. Carbuncle is the principal at Amethyst Elementary. She has an insatiable appetite for power and soon becomes a tyrant; she also develops a desire for prestige and glory, and she knows the only way to attain this is through high test scores for her elementary school. Therefore, she drives her Teachers into a frenzy as she demands that they instruct only those subjects that will be included on the all-important, all-consuming state examination.
    She is ruthless in her desire to achieve her lofty goals. She happily destroys the lives of anyone who gets in her way. Some of the Teachers fight back, and some of them are destroyed by her; still, she cannot be everywhere at every moment, but when cameras are put into the classrooms, the Teachers are nearly under her complete control.
    But then the Secret comes, and with it, the Teachers are able to carry on, and wait for the day they will be liberated and can educate as they know best; yes, they survive, but the school slowly dies, for no true learning occurs, only monotonous, repetitive lessons that inoculate the students with certain test-ready knowledge.
    And then one day, two small visitors come for Carbuncle and attempt to teach her a real lesson in civility and charity and give her a chance to repent for all she has done to the inhabitants of the school.
    Will Carbuncle reform? If she reforms, will she fight for the Teachers? If she refuses, what will be the consequences? And what is the Secret?
    Public schools are an easy target for anyone who has a yellow pen or a high position in society or politics and who decries the state of education in America, thereby crucifying every Teacher in every school and empowering principals like Carbuncle everywhere; yet, these people form their opinions about American schools from flawed childhood memories, unreliable anecdotes, and distortions of the truth.
    Read every word between the covers of this book and you will soon know what is really going on in the secret world of public schools, for the author of this tale is an educator, and reveals the unabashed, sordid truth, albeit in novel form, about America’s crumbling educational system.
