Beyond the End of the World
Purchase: Amazon (paperback)\Kindle | B&N

The Earth has been devastated by a nuclear holocaust. Technological wizard Jeremy Edgarton and a few of his friends were whisked off planet moments before the horror by the goldies, a race of super-evolved aliens who seemed too good to be true. Unfortunately for Jeremy, that’s exactly what they were and now he wants out.

Jeremy’s mother, Veronica Edgarton, is awakening from a cryogenic sleep in a chamber deep beneath the ice near the North Pole. She is facing life with one of the most ruthless and cruel men ever to have lived. She is not the kind of person to take this lying down.

In another place, 105 generations after the missiles struck, the inhabitants of a bunker designed to preserve them until the radiation has receded are preparing to emerge. Regrettably, evolution can work for evil as well as good.

Each of these events is potentially volatile. Combine them and the results are explosive! The players from across time and space are catapulted into a struggle of cosmic scale, challenging them to draw upon every ounce of their physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

Lady Grace is a thrilling, action-filled adventure wrapped in the embrace of epic love.


The End of the World Was Just the Beginning of Sam’s Troubles

Sam Baahuhd has been the headman of the village for twenty-two years. He has the Voice and he has the Power. With them, he can control others with his speech and heal with a touch. Even with his powers, Sam has survived as the headman only because he’s tough and canny enough to keep his fellow villagers from murdering him. Together, they live on Veronica Edgarton’s estate in the Hamptons. Or they do until the nuclear Armageddon destroys the world.

The massive underground bomb shelter on the estate is intended for the planet’s intellectual elite. When Sam and his nearly 100 villagers find themselves moving into the high tech shelter, it’s a cosmic joke.

Despite living at the end of the 3rd millennium AD, the villagers are serf-like and their society is medieval. They can’t read, spend a lot of their time drunk or stoned, and are so inbred it’s a miracle they can put two coherent words together.

Now they are the heirs to the planet. Or at least their descendants will be in a couple thousand years when the radiation clears. If they don’t kill each other first.

Dragging a battered but beautiful female federal agent with him as the shelter’s massive steel doors close is not the best move Sam has ever made. Arthur Romero, a commando planted by the military, thinks she is seriously bad news. Arthur is the only non-villager and the only man who can run the shelter’s computers and life-support machinery. He wants her dead.

What’s worse, Sam loses his powers the minute he enters the shelter. It’s just a matter of time before the village thugs figure it out. If they gang up on him, he doesn’t have a prayer.

Sam has faced challenges before. He isn’t afraid of them. But he has never faced a challenge like the one that comes crashing in when he realizes he is in love with the wounded warrior woman he has named . . . Emily.

  4. I would love to win a Kindle fire because I currently read e-books on my computer and as everything is switching to digital that is getting really frustrating.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!


    P.S. - I have to ask, how would you pronounce Baahuhd? The only way I can think to do it makes me think of a sheep, which can't be right.
