These include over 30 publications, the likes of ChiZine, Bare Bone, The Harrow, Flesh and Blood, Until Someone Loses an Eye, and Darkness Rising. While preparing for the forthcoming collapse of civilization, I enjoy living in Southern California in a moderately haunted Victorian farmhouse with my life partner, Lisa.

I've been blessed with a variety of interesting jobs: a covert position with the CIA's Directorate of Operations; attorney in an international law firm; in-house counsel at the Osaka headquarters of Matsushita Electric; executive in a Silicon Valley technology startup.
These days I write full time: a thriller series about half-Japanese, half-American freelance assassin John Rain, whose specialty is making it look like natural causes. My agency training, my experiences in Japan, and a background in martial arts all inform my writing. If you like edge-of-your seat action, exotic locations, realistic spycraft, steamy sex, and a killer with a conscience who is "the stuff great characters are made of" (Entertainment Weekly), and if you like books by Lee Child, Joe Finder, Ian Fleming, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn, Graham Greene, Richard Marcinko, David Morrell, Daniel Silva, Trevanian, Andrew Vachss, and Marcus Wynne, the Rain series is probably for you.
The books have won the Deadly Pleasures Barry Award and Mystery Ink Gumshoe Award for Best Thriller of the Year; have been included in numerous “Best Of” lists, including those of Amazon, Deadly Pleasures, News-Press, Publisher’s Weekly, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the San Jose Mercury News; have been translated into nearly twenty languages; and have been optioned for film by Barrie Osborne, Oscar-winning producer of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Curse of Kali by Audrey Blankenhagen
In 1854, beautiful Doctor Helen Forsythe marries into a family beset by a strange history. Her charismatic husband, Sir Gavin French, is the British Resident at the court of a Muslim prince.
The exotic beauty of India, her British rulers living in splendid isolation; the opulence and intrigue of a Muslim Royal Court; the machinations of a sinister cult of Kali; the horrors of the Indian Mutiny: are the themes woven into the rich backcloth of “THE CURSE OF KALI”. In this turbulent setting are a man and a woman whose destinies are inextricably linked, their love yearning to flower despite every obstacle.

C.L. Talmadge, author of the Green Stone of Healing series, is familiar with the intimate link between spirituality, energy, and healing. The Ancient World of Azgard. Can energy heal? Has the human race survived global cataclysm before? Is it possible to reunite with loved ones and soul mates? Do we live more than once?

The Children of the Anarii 1 by Alii Bek
Visionary Fantasy. This is Book 1 of The Anarii Chronicles. Limited copies of the trade paperback are still available from First edition. Morgana Brejjard is an ordinary dreamer, and the eldest daughter of a northern landholder. It is a hard-working, quiet society with no place for daydreams, but Morgana hears voices she cannot understand that seem to call her away from all that she has ever known. With an all too-real vision calling for her help from Rejat, a Mirii warrior healer, her Aunt Elas' arrival and surprising announcement of her heritage to the same forbidden order, followed by her father's heartless betrayal, Morgana begins a journey with Rejat and her aunt to join the Mirii and their spirit companions, the Azerii, to seek her destiny and to understand the voices that trouble her soul.

This book is a good, strong, multilayered example of a hugely popular genre. It is fantasy and adventure, with a glimpse into a possible parallel reality of someone else’s imagining. THE MAPPING OF MARKESH is written with a hand that is both sure and light; Paul Tonks’s creation, the Hidden Continent, is logical within its inherent fantasy.

This chapter is very intriguing, and draws me to continue reading. The Characters are clearly described, as are the surroundings. It has me curious to know what lies in future pages for the dear King Tayo. Excellent start to an exciting story to come.

I love your flawless description of the castle, the queen, and other characters and their particular histories. I think your dialogue works quite well.

An astonishing piece of writing. You have brought the reader right into each of the scenes. Your characters, although many, are so descriptively portrayed that one has no difficulty following the story line. And the mesh of the old with the modern is really unique. If there was a category for six stars, I would have given you that.
Thoroughly enjoyable.

I knew that I had to leave this morning only to come back to the site but I could not leave this novel and decided to continue on. I loved how you keep the intense emotions on a level that is almost breath taking.

The names of the characters are unique, but not too far out there, I like that. The chapter is very well written, just like the read. You've done a great job.
