Works In Progress


The third entry in the Children of a Dead Earth series picks up fifteen years after the events of TRIDENT’S FORGE and puts the shaky alliance of humans and Atlantians to its greatest test yet as an ancient discovery stirs up fears of an old enemy and drives a wedge between friends and allies alike.

Rough draft is done. Expected publication is Sept, 2017.



My very first novel.

Earth is in a predicament. The Magellan, a curious AI ship on a mission of exploration, has discovered an unknown object in deep space. Most intriguing of all is the mysterious signal the artifact is broadcasting to anyone who cares to listen.

The Magellan’s crew, captained by the intrepid Allison Ridgeway, strives to unlock the artifact’s advanced technology. They are assisted by a crack team of researchers back on Earth, headed by ultimate science geek and Moon native, Felix Fletcher. The brave crew and their Earth counterparts are joined by Earth’s first hyper-capable ship, The Bucephalus, and the questionably competent Captain Maximus Tiberius.

Together they set out to explore the galaxy, searching for the artifact’s maker. Little do they know, their mission will culminate in a high stakes staring contest with the powers that control the entire galaxy, with the fate of the Earth hanging in the balance. Except some of the players have an unfair advantage – they have no eyelids. Some of them don’t even have eyes.

After a thorough rewrite, A HOLE IN THE FENCE has been SOLD to Christopher Morgan at Tor! Anticipated publication is summer, 2018



This one is in the very early stages of development. I pitched it to my agent as “The Hunt for Red October” in space with a little TOS Star Trek “Balance of Terror” thrown in for good measure. He bit, and I can’t wait to really sink my teeth into this one after CHILDREN OF THE DIVIDE is done. Stay tuned.

Update: Something’s popped up on long range sensors…

  1. I’m a reader of sci fi for 55+ years, over 4,000 of ’em. I LOVED your two Ark books. Great world creation (Ark and Atlantis) great tangle of plots and top character development. I hope you write many more in the Ark universe plus others.

    1. Thank you, Alan. I’m glad you’re enjoying them so thoroughly. Book III in the Ark series is moving right along, of course whether we see more after that will depend entirely on how they do out in the wild.

      Stay tuned!
