Julie is a woman on the edge. The strain of raising a handicapped child and the pressures a small town rumor mill creates have taken their toll.

All her life she has been ridiculed or, even worse, ignored.

But that stops today.

Hemingway scholars have long postulated on the whereabouts of Hadley's valise, a satchel containing several of Hemingway's early manuscripts. Yes, his first wife lost the valise on her way to join Papa in Pamplona for a little bull dodging, but did she lose it or was it stolen? Pilfered by someone who had a grudge against young Ernest Hemingway?

In The Importance of Being Ernest, an untenured literature professor, facing the peril of “publish or perish,” travels from Key West to Paris in pursuit of Hadley's valise, only to discover the bastard child of a Left Bank literary legend as well as the answer to the question: what happened to Hadley's valise?

Evermore: An Introduction is the story of Brewin, a 20-something year-old, who blurs reality and fiction as he contemplates life's big question: What's it all about?

Always the joker, Brewin not only lets his reader into his mind, but somehow embeds himself in his reader's mind. He weaves the bizarre and mind-expanding worlds of Evermore together with his life, relaying conversations with friends as they actually happened, his musings on life and snippets of other stories he is writing.

Beware! This book may prove hazardous to your concept of reality!


Andrea Dayla is about to start the next chapter of her life, college, leaving the only family she’s ever known behind. It was going to be scary enough being away from home in a strange city but little did she know Hanover had far scarier things in residence; the truth.
For Andrea, vampires were just part of the mythical stories her uncle had told her since as long as she could remember. She didn’t believe they exist until she meets the Brennen’s. Uncle Greg had always painted vampires in a bad light; pure evil more like. Andrea refuses to acknowledge Shane or his family as vile creatures.
Things were bad enough when she fell in love with Shane, she was mortal but of course it had to get worse. She discovers her family secret, they were immortal vampire hunters. Hunting and killing vampires to protect the humans was who she was, it was what she was made fore. Trouble is that the other part of her is ruled by her love for Shane and his family.
Torn between her love for a vampire and her loyalty to her kind, Andrea will have to make choices that will save a part of herself and destroy others. Too bad that’s not all she has to worry about… She’ll just have to believe.

Life has not been too kind to little Tomika Drake. Other than growing up in one of the most ill-reputed cities in the state, at age 13, she lost her beloved mother and soon after, her father was incarcerated. For the next three years, she lived her life stuck in a suburban hell with her narcissistic half-sister and her equally evil mother, but on her 16th birthday, her life changed when she was forced to unwrap the powerful superhuman gift that was bestowed upon her at birth.

Pretty Killers examines millennial American pop culture, politics, and society through a whirlwind week starting when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with a famed fashion mogul brings the feuding family to the sparkling metropolis of Queen City. But the shine quickly fades when they learn that the neighboring burg has been tackling an issue with humongous mutants and other terrors, including a gang that Tomika's half-sister gets caught up in.

When the fate of the city ends up on Tomika's shoulders, will she find it in her heart to save her half-sister, or take the chance to finally do away with the scourge while saving the city from her gang's tirades?

Zed is not your typical zombie. He is cursed with the affliction of thought ... although he tries to make the best of a bad situation. The goals for his unrest are simple: to improve his stride, to taste a lightly-seared pork loin once again and avoid Activists at all costs.

His life was predictable, controlled and good until chaos crashed the party. In just one day, his world is destroyed and his ability to survive is tested. Would he be able to get through this in one piece? And would he somehow be able to survive the unstoppable force that goes by the name of Chase?
