Having spent a career working as a computer specialist in the financial industry in Chicago and New York City, I traveled a lot and met a lot of varied characters. I bring that experience, and a history to looking at problems in unexpected ways to weave interesting stories together.
I struggled with writing for a long time, but could never finish anything, until I realized that while I could suspend my disbelief long enough to read a novel, I couldn't do it long enough to write one. Thus I decided to ignore the standard 'rules' of writing a story.
Every time I write a story, beside a basic plot and a theme, I create a particular writing challenge (like creating a cast of hundreds, or killing of most of my characters). It may not always work, but it keeps me interested, it makes me work that much harder, and it provides some unique tales.

Seeding Hope Among the Ashes
The man telling the country how to survive an apocalyptic event must teach the nation how to heal themselves.

This sequel follows each girl as they journey to different cities, convincing reluctant survivors to let them make them sick.
"Never Leave Anyone Behind" is a familiar refrain for Servicemen. A crew is incapacitated in a strange land and a hostile government tries to capture them and steal their resources. What if you're not in the military? Do you put your family's lives at risk, especially if they might not live.
Josh Evens discovers a shipwrecked alien and tries to protect it and it's crew from his government.
Building A Legacy
With time running out, Alex faces life with a new confidence even as events and those around him change abruptly. Alex feels relieved of the need to save his people, but he still feels responsible for them and wants to leave a strong legacy. But what will that legacy be? Follow along as he adjusts to new challenges as he struggles to continue, in this, the last book of the "Catalyst" Series.
Touring Under Pressure
Leaving the familiar supportive environment of New Orleans after being exposed, Alex takes his mission on the road. Along with the blur of life on a concert tour, there are dark trends as well: Alex is now nationally known, the media is hungry for news and there are multiple people eager to hurt him. As he travels the country, they learn more about him and what drives people to love or hate him.
Racing the Clock
Alex seeks to find as many new followers as he can during the limited time he has left, as he comes to grip with the knowledge that his abilities will likely kill him. Before that happens, he hits the road with his sister and an ex-cop serving as a bodyguard. Along the way, they learn much more about him, about his followers, and about leading a mission when one doesn’t know the way.
Normalcy Is Harder Than It Looks
Having wrestled with trying to preserve a 'normal' last few months of high school, Alex faces an even harder time, as not only does he have to explain to those he loves what his life has become, but he faces several people who seem to hate him as much as his followers adore him. What's a confused teenage atheist religious figure to do?
Trying To Be Normal
Having returned from New Orleans with a whole new life, Alex tries to become just a normal young man as he returns to school. Can he blend in for the next two months despite having several women following him around? And will his abilities really be invisible to everyone around him?

Grappling with Survival
A Post-Apocalyptic world unlike any other. Instead of banding together or fighting each other, here the survivors find a world with few resources, little trust and no desire to intermingle. Fears of disease prevent survivors from reaching out for help. How does society survive if the survivors won’t participate?
