Books

cover-quotidian

Quotidian- (working title and cover) Sci-fi/Dystopian. Complete and unpublished

Blurb: Hours after a solar flare casts the Seattle into darkness, earthquakes and floods tear into the city, volcanoes erupt, and all life comes to an end… and then it starts all over again.
Caught in an inescapable loop in time, Thom and the rest of the city spend the next five years reliving the end of the world. Amongst the chaos, a government is formed, jobs established, and new and exciting diversions are born. But with no fear of death and no limit to the cruelties man can conceive, it is not much of a life.
Eager to make a difference in an unchanging world, Thom quits his job as a Witness to verbal contracts to become an IDLE man. As an Instant Death Loop Ender, he must wake his clients before their imminent deaths each morning. But when he inadvertently wakes a man intended to remain in an eternal slumber, he learns that the department he now works for is not as noble and incorruptible as he first believed. Thom must choose between keeping their secrets or risk exposing the very department he suspects has the power to kill…permanently.

grounded cover

Grounded- (working title and cover) also leaning toward Upended. Hard Science Fiction. Complete and unpublished

Blurb: When a failed experiment renders everything within a mile completely weightless, Dr. Kyle Kessler narrowly avoids joining the countless cars, buildings, and people falling into the sky.

In the aftermath, he and the other survivors are given a choice: regain their weight with time or become astronauts in the newest space program. With the wealth of weightless materials, NASA plans to build a spacecraft capable of venturing anywhere in the Solar System without gravity to hold it back. But for this diverse and inexperienced crew, astronaut training may prove to be as dangerous as space itself. And if Kyle can’t keep the truth of the failed experiment out of the wrong hands, it could destroy the only thing holding the Earth together.
