The Books of the Progenitor Saga
For sale exclusively on Amazon.
The first release in the Progenitor Saga, Ignition Point is a collection of related short stories featuring protagonists, villains, and secondary characters seen in the novels of the series. Ignition Point was released in October 2014.
Two hundred years after the cataclysm that annihilated fossil fuels, Sparks keep electricity flowing through their control of energy-giving Dust.
* “Ward” introduces Thomas, a thirteen-year-old boy rescued from Scavengers, marauding slavers who murdered both his biological and foster parents and sold the highly powered boy to the highest bidder—the Council of Nine. Dumped at the Ward School to train his abilities, Thomas must learn to survive among a new breed of savages…the boys who have been training there since they were five and the men who must hone them into weapons.
* “Blood and Water” is the story of Lucas, a young man who has spent his childhood shunned by his powerful, religious family for the crime of being born a Spark. On the cusp of attaining his place in the world his grandfather intends to re-shape, Lucas will discover the heavy price of belonging. Will he pay it, or will he count the costs and deem them too high?
* “Ghost Story” shows how lives lived on the edge—of society, of safety, of sanity—intersect. Lena, a highly powered runaway, fled a life of hiding from the Council. Elias is one of the so-called New Barbarians, those who choose to live free, if hard and dangerous, lives. Wounded and dying, he hunts the Scavengers who killed his family and took his brother to sell. A chance meeting in the desert of what was once New Mexico will change them both forever.
A collection of three related short stories, Ignition Point offers a glimpse into the lives of characters from the novel Spark Rising.
Spark Rising is the first full-length novel in the Progenitor Saga. It released in December 2014, and is available in paperback form through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The e-book is temporarily exclusively available on Amazon. In February 2015 Spark Rising won an SFR Galaxy Award. In July 2015 it was awarded the FCRW’s National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award in the Paranormal and Futuristic category.
Lena’s ability to wield the energy-giving Dust makes her a commodity to control—or a liability to remove at all cost.
All that’s required to ignite a revolution is a single spark rising…
Two hundred years after the cataclysm that annihilated fossil fuels, Sparks keep electricity flowing through their control of energy-giving Dust. The Council of Nine rebuilt civilization on the backs of Sparks, offering citizens a comfortable life in a relo-city in exchange for power, particularly over the children able to fuel the future. The strongest of the boys are taken as Wards and raised to become elite agents, the Council’s enforcers and spies. Strong girls—those who could advance the rapidly-evolving matrilineal power—don’t exist. Not according to the Council.
Lena Gracey died as a child, mourned publicly by parents desperate to keep her from the Council. She was raised in hiding until she fled the relo-city for solitary freedom in the desert. Lena lives off the grid, selling her power on the black market.
Agent Alex Reyes was honed into a calculating weapon at the Ward School to do the Council’s dirty work. But Alex leads a double life. He’s leading the next generation of agents in a secret revolution to destroy those in power from within.
The life Lena built to escape her past ends the day Alex arrives looking for a renegade Spark.
[COVER COMING SOON!]
Spark Awakening is due in March 2016. It will be released widely to paperback and e-book retailers.
Lena has to face a future she never wanted. Alex has to face the past he buried deep. The revolution could bring them closer or separate them forever.
Forced from her home in the desert, Lena Gracey joined the Spark revolution. She saved a group of powered girls and enjoys a maddening partnership with double agent Alex Reyes. She thought the future was set. But by the end of the summer, she faces conspirators within the movement ready to strike against her and discovers the Dust is somehow evolving. With the Council issuing warrants against her, it’s time for her to do what she does best. She’ll take her girls and go rogue in the high desert of Zone Three.
Alex Reyes knew his role in the revolution: the bad man, willing to do bad things for the good of Sparks. He never expected Lena Gracey. He never expected she’d uncover feelings long buried…including his conscience. Facing suspicion from every corner, there’s no time for soul-searching. His mission to the eastern Zones will make or break the movement. Mysterious, powered young men are tracking him. He’s got to work the angles, charm the willing, and force the hands of everyone else.
And the Dust is ready for her to wake…
Prep for Doom
Prep for Doom is a unique collection of apocalyptic short stories that reads like a novel. From the imaginations of twenty authors of dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction comes PREP FOR DOOM – an integrated collection of short stories that tell the tale of a single catastrophe as experienced by many characters, some of whom will cross paths.
What begins with a seemingly innocuous traffic accident soon spirals into a global pandemic. The release of Airborne Viral Hemorrhagic Fever upon New York City’s unsuspecting populace brings bloody suffering within hours, death within a day, and spreads worldwide within a month.
An online community called Prep For Doom has risen to the top of a recent doomsday preparation movement. Some have written them off as crazy while others couldn’t be more serious about the safety the preppers could provide in a global disaster. But when AVHF strikes, their preparation may not be enough to save them.
