DEAD PEOPLE

Everything changed when the Stringfellows arrived on Earth and restarted the world. The bad news is that the aliens randomly chose which people to bring back to life. No rhyme or reason. From across time. The good and the bad. To take care of the more evil of these unfortunate returns, the Stringfellows have tasked certain humans with the new occupation of assassin. Following a unique and mysterious point system, the ultimate reward for their bloody work is the chance to bring back a person of their choosing. Crass and blunt, hitman Mild McMahon only wants to bring back one person: his mother. But to do this he’ll have to kill some of the worst people in history. Given assignments by his talking dog and forced to team up with an unlikely assassin with a near addiction to breath mints, Mild must hunt down a murderers’ row of notorious killers and hope he still has time for coffee.

The Hunt for Armageddon

The US President isin St. Petersburg attending the G20 summit, and he has with him, as always, the presidential briefcase capable of launching anuclear response. While there, a volatile young Chechen and high-wire acrobat Tamerlan Troshev‒shades of the Boston bombers‒pulls off a brilliantly-executed briefcase heist, and if the trove should end up in the hands of a rogue state such as North Korea, it could easily trigger World War III. Both the president and Russian President Vladimir Putin mutually agree the affair must remain top secret. However, due to current diplomatic protocol, no Russian or American operatives can be involved. International art and artifacts sleuth Michael Bennington just happens to be in St. Petersburg researching the Rembrandts at the Hermitage Museum, and he is enlisted by the American consul general, there, to work with Russian-born consulate employee Ekaterina Nabokova in tracking down this Troshev before he can deliver the briefcase to an adversary. The ensuing hunt takes Bennington and Nabokova all across Europe and finally to Rome where they are able to corner the lone terrorist and hopefully negotiate some sort of deal. But the outcome of that takes a dramatic twist throwing Bennington into a riveting tailspin. Paperback. Also sold at Kindle edition.

Quantum Energetics and Spirituality: Aligning with Universal Consciousness

The birth of quantum physics brought science and spirituality into alignment. It was the realization by physicists that photons have consciousness, and not just limited consciousness, but awareness of the entire cosmos. This is easy to prove by a simple experiment. A photon is a sub-atomic quantum of light that has no mass, but has velocity, momentum and vibratory frequency.

In knowing and understanding the structure of our experiences, we can master our lives in all dimensions of quantum energy patterns. What is real is consciousness. It is all-pervasive throughout the cosmos and perhaps beyond. Universal consciousness expresses itself as the unified quantum field of all potentialities. This is a plasma electromagnetic expanse of wave patterns, radiant with photons and life force. The seers and mystics perceive that there is a quality of unconditional love that is inherent in universal consciousness. This has not yet been recognized by quantum physicists, but it is implied by the organization of the living cosmos. Everything is conscious and works in perfect harmony, with the exception of our negatively-polarized energetic patterns, due to our desire to use our free will to explore anomalous vibrations under the guise of self-created limitations to our awareness. We can resolve our limitations and elevate our lives.

The Past Not Taken: Three Novellas

History is part legend, part fact, but mostly interpretation of those who have gone before us.

We make history every day.  From one moment to the next, our decisions—small and large—shape our future and, as we travel along that path, shape our past. How do we want it to read? Should we care? Or should we just get on with our lives and hope for the best? The Past Not Taken is three novellas that show that not all "authorities" are authoritative.

Two roads diverge in a yellow wood...

Two young people, their lives stretching out ahead of them, expect very different things out of life after college, but their roads don't go that way. Curtis is a budding historian at a small university. Melanie is a friend-who-is-a-girl, and she's in trouble. The kind of trouble that could get her father fired from the small straight-laced university. Melanie asks Curtis for help...sort of. Or did Curtis just offer? 

In a small archive, documents that could upend American history are found. Did Jefferson suggest that Washington was an ignorant bumpkin and that America bounded by the Constitution would fail?

The Past Not Taken explores choices, parenthood and responsibility, and how history is written. Fair warning: it isn't always based on facts.

Two roads diverge in a yellow wood...

A young woman knocks on a stranger's door. Only she isn't entirely a stranger, and she has nowhere else to go. Her story is inextricably linked with the family behind that door. But the institution that is their livelihood won't let her stay.

How "authoritative" are the documents that make up the basis of our history? Just because a document appears to be old and is in an archive, does that make it "proof" of the past?

Daughter By Choice explores how the past catches up to everyone. It also explores the nature of being a parent, and how there's so many different kinds of families. It, too, speaks of how history is written and how the long-forgotten can become so important so fast.

Whereof what's past is prologue...

A man appears, both known and unknown. He asks for little, but that little means so much. He says a girl's future is in peril. And what he asks for can be simply devastating for everyone.

History likes to teach about "turning points." 1776 is one for American history. But what if someone were to declare that 1619 was a more appropriate turning point and waves an archival document around to "prove" it? Is that document authentic? How do we know?

The Past and the Prologue is a story of recurrence, sources, narratives, what it is to be a parent, and, once again, how history is written. 

We may make history, but it's the "authorities" --the scribes and narrators of the future--who write it based on what we leave behind.

The Warm Lands

Gregor of Serebal, a journeyman sorcerer educated at the Scholium Arcanum in the East, is on a cross-continent trek through the Great Waste: the lifeless desert left by the Dieback that all but eliminated life from Aeol. He has been tasked to chart the courses of the major mana conduits of the continent. In the process he discovers that they have been diverted from their normal paths: Whereas they once flowed from north to south, they now flow from east to west. While there is no obvious explanation for their diversion, they appear to flow directly toward Pontreval, where the Scholium Arcanum in the West is situated.



Laella of Anam is a gifted one: a potential sorcerer not yet trained to the disciplines that would make it safe to practice. Yet the mana has already touched her to ill effect. It has made her a virgin mother, to the horror of her family and neighbors. The ruler of her village has executed her infant son, and the infant children of three other women similarly afflicted, when Gregor arrives in Anam.



Mutual admiration brings them together. Once mated, they travel further west through the Great Waste in pursuit of Gregor’s errand. But though his intent was to walk all the way across the continent, charting the mana streams as he traveled, events will force them to return to Urel, the site of the Scholium Arcanum in the East where Gregor was made an initiate of the Arcana. There he and Laella will confront mysteries the sorcerers of the Scholium cannot unravel. Beneath those mysteries lies a threat to the life of Aeol that will demand all that Gregor, Laella, and their colleagues have to give.
