Books

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 Complete and unpublished

Blurb: Hours after a solar flare casts the city of 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.

 

Agony’s Fire-(working title) Fantasy/Adventure. Complete and unpublished

Blurb: Magic is a reviled thing, a power given by demons in exchange for the soul, or so Caelum Windal was always taught. Stranded in a winter storm without a fire, Caelum makes no such bargain and yet the cold wood of the campfire ignites.

He is entrusted to the care of Grandmaster Jaems, a holy man who is more inclined to kill Caelum than rid him of his curse. Caelum escapes with the aid of the infamous bandits of the Urögden forest. They claim that magic is no curse, but the sliver of the God-of-All’s gift. But only with the truest knowledge of fire can he hope to claim mastery of it, and only at the Academy can he strive to know all things. But his past is not so easily outrun.
