Barnes & Noble
is my preferred outlet for the simple reason that I love physical book stores. I can spend all day wandering the shelves, perusing fascinating tomes of fact and fiction, philosophy and religion. Barnes & Noble is the only major US based book store left, and I want them to thrive. Of course, you can buy my book anywhere, even here on the site, but I encourage you to support physical book stores whenever you can, and if you're going to buy a physical copy to buy it from them.

Believe - 2024
The last word her mother spoke before she died was a whisper, but it was spoken with such force that it moved through the room like a tempest and cut through Cassandra's grief and anger, piercing her heart like a dagger.
More fervent than a prayer, more potent than magic, if there had been any such thing as magic. The last word of a dying woman, spoken with all the force of her departing soul, seared itself into Cassandra's mind like a bright, burning coal.
The enigmatic word haunted Cassandra for a decade, whispering in the hidden corners of every thought. "Believe..." in what? God, herself? Years passed before she understood, and when she did, everything changed.
A Far Distant Home -Summer 2024
Purgatory is the place between heaven and hell where souls awaiting judgment are sent. For the refugees fleeing a war that threatened to wipe humanity from the universe, it seemed an apt name for a world secreted away in a fold of space sealed on one side by a massive black hole in the real universe, and sealed on the inside by the loss of the technology to open the gateway back to the universe.
But for the Darwinists, whose world Purgatory is, the guests have outstayed their welcome and if a key to their prison cannot be found, then their devotion to build a world untouched by the taint of humanity will be fulfilled, whatever the cost.
