Military & War Biographies
From an early age I craved adventure, that adrenaline rush. I found it when I joined the Coast Guard in 1986, near the beginning of the Helicopter Rescue Swimmer Program. I eagerly signed up for what many considered the impossible. And was welcomed and mentored by living legends like Larry Farmer, Scott Dyer, Jeff Tunks (and so many others). I was just an average kid, filled with raw emotion, flaws and anger. It was in this organization – this family – where I was molded, scolded, hardened and sharpened into the pointy end of a rescue spear.
Rescue swimmers are few in number and I am proud to have spent my life’s defining moments as a member of this fraternity. A fraternity known as the Brotherhood of the Fin.

Stone Wright is Foreplay’s hottest act. While entertaining at the popular L.A. strip club known for catering to the feminine wild, the fever-inducing Aussie with the sex-saturated accent and moves to match is preparing for the audition of a lifetime on the sensational hit reality show Then Prove You Can Dance. When retired principal dancer and ballerina Emilie Cartier stumbles into his dressing room, she’s still reeling from the one wrong spin that altered her entire life and obliterated her dreams. After a humiliating public, albeit meteoric, orgasm—the kind so desperate to escape, it took over her body without her brain’s permission—and a second, more intimate and deliriously deliberate one, Emilie makes a deal with Stone: he helps her get her dancing mojo back and she readies him for his national audition. But she insists he keeps his wily, wandering hands to himself and his dirty mouth shut. Of course, that’s going to be an extremely hard challenge—one of herculean proportions.

Hard Science Fiction
Many centuries in the future, a two-hundred-year-old man is discovered hibernating in a space capsule orbiting a distant star. Transported back to his home planet, Andrew Blake awakens to an Earth he does not recognize—a world of flying cars and sentient floating houses—with no memory whatsoever of his history or purpose. But he has not returned alone. The last survivor of a radical experiment abandoned more than a century earlier, Blake was genetically altered to be able to adapt to extreme alien environments, and now he can sense other presences inhabiting his mind and body. One is a biological computer of astonishing power; the other is a powerful creature akin to a large wolf. And Blake is definitely not the one in control. With his sanity hanging in the balance, Blake’s only option is to set out in frantic pursuit of his past, the truth, his destiny—and quite possibly the fate of humankind.
