The Island: Fallen Earth, Book 1

The fever struck hard and fast, rising out of the slums and claiming victim after victim. At first, reports trickled across the wire in small segments relegated to the final seconds of the broadcast news. Lost among stories of failing economies and political bickering, few noticed what proved to be the birth pangs of a monster. Within months, the disease dominated the news as thousands died and infection rates soared.

William Hill knew his chances of avoiding the virus sat squarely between slim and none. With experts predicting a global pandemic, his choices boiled down to not if, but where he would die. While the rest of the world built barricades and set up distribution points for food, he chose a simpler end. The island had been one of the last and best times with his father. He couldn't think of a better place to spend his final days.

He wanted sun and sand, fresh fish on the grill, and cool nights by the campfire. He wanted feel-good days filled with oldies on the radio, days when he could hoist the sails and run before the wind. He didn't set out to make enemies, but he did. He didn't plan on becoming humanity's last hope for survival, or watching over an old woman and an eerie little boy, either.

To William Hill, the island seemed as good a place as any to die.

He just didn't realize how good.

The Island - Part 2: Fallen Earth

The fever exploded across the US and the world. Hour by hour, the news grew worse. The virus was spreading at a bewildering pace, killing so fast that estimates had to be constantly revised. Even worse, it appeared to be mutating to an even deadlier form.

Stranded on Portsmouth Island after the President instituted martial law, William Hill found himself fighting to survive even though he had come to the island to die. The old village offered shelter against the storms and the coming winter. The sea offered food. Life should have been simple.

It wasn't. He hadn't counted on the old woman, or the odd little boy she brought with her. He hadn't expected to provide for nearly a dozen people.

He wasn't prepared for the evil that came to the island. William Hill had never been afraid of the dark. He never had reason to.

He did now. Not only had the evil come.

It knew his name.

About the Author

I'm currently an over the road truck driver, frequently found at the end of a 400 to 500 mile day trying to peck out one to two thousand words on a new book. I'm an Army paratrooper with a background in intelligence operations. I spent six years in Iraq and Afghanistan, in uniform and out. Currently, my greatest challenges are black ice, lake effect snow, and uploading word documents to the ebook format, all equally treacherous endeavors. My greatest hope is to write stories that my readers enjoy.

Antioch: Volume 1 (The Circle)

"Armageddon is arrived." Threatened by an unnatural plague that raises the dead, an ancient order of mystics must choose between keeping its secrets and saving humanity. Kind of like Star Wars with zombies. Editor's Review: Antioch is a great fantasy adventure novel with plenty of sword fighting and monsters (zombies), but the heart of the book is its characters, complex story and clean, imaginative prose. From the pious yet conflicted paladin Michael to the loudmouthed but lovable sailor Ditch, the characters in Antioch are multifaceted and unique. There are no stereotypes within these pages, yet through the use of humor and seamless dialog, the characters are relatable and believable. This is a rarity in books even by many seasoned authors. The story begins with slaughter and mystery, then turns to small-town life under the shadow of fear as the citizens of Antioch prepare for Armageddon. Still, questions about the origin and nature of the plague remain and the eventual discovery of the answers is as exciting as the final showdown with death. My only complaint is that the story is left unfinished, and like everyone else who reads Antioch, I have to wait for the rest of the series to discover the final fate of my favorite characters and the answers to all my questions. The writing in Antioch is clear and precise. I can testify that the author agonized over every word, and it shows in the careful phrasing and brilliant imagery of the story. This, in my opinion, is the mark of a not just a great book, but a great writer. Highly recommended for any fantasy fan.

Highway to Hell

Fortuna's Bastard: a Novel: Volume 1 (A Great and Continuous Malignity)

At 16 Matt Feargal dreamed of little else but escaping his mother, her alcoholism, the incessant raiding of his stash, and the narrow confines of Dilmun. There was little enough to hold him beyond the distractions of petty crime, the ganja he grew in a nearby wood, and a girlfriend more interested in the weed than him. One ray of sunshine-a chance encounter with Jonah Salt living just north of his grow. Salt, the kid believed, had a plan that would net Feargal enough to put Dilmun behind him. In a cafe, however, a woman wanted a spliff-and life was looking up. But... At first the signs were small and easily dismissed-the light was off, the shadow wasn't really a lope; the river broke not quite right in the moonlight, all just magical thinking. Of course there was the fox in The Wood-but that had to have been rabid. On top of all the signs and wonders there was, perhaps, the return of Zakara Botrous-his father. With this followed the rumours brought from Eastern Mexico and the Cinn-a great and continuous malignity.

At Least He's Not On Fire: A Tour of the Things That Escape My Head

All in, Hell Hole, and The Vampire of Menlo Park are all great fun, and I hope you enjoy them. Dark Recollections: Book One of Adrian's Undead Diary Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors.
