What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like reading on my Android phone with the Kindle app. It's nice when I'm waiting somewhere.
What are you working on next?
Right now, I'm revising book 3 in the Red Dog Conspiracy, The Ace of Clubs. I'm also working on a side story about Morton's timeline (he's here for a reason, and it might not be what you think), and a book set 30 years after the end of the series featuring two of the people who survive all this. That one will be under a pen name as it's a very different genre.
This is how the world ends. This is how it begins.
Donald Kerston's life up to now could only be described as a nightmare. But what he wakes up to suddenly becomes much worse. Struggling for his very survival, for the first time he finds friends and a future - only to be confronted with what he never wanted to face: his own terrible past.
A 17,000 word prequel in the Red Dog Conspiracy universe.

But she's called to stand as a witness in the disaster inquest. Will the secrets she's kept - from her husband, her family, her friends, and her city - ruin everything she hoped to achieve?

Head Guardsman Xavier Alcatraz and his former history teacher Acevedo Spadros - backed by the notorious Spadros crime family - combine their resources to overthrow the Mad King. A prequel to the Red Dog Conspiracy.
Private eye and mobster's moll Jacqueline Spadros, hired by a jewel merchant styling herself "The Queen of Diamonds", finds herself caught up in a web of lies and blackmail. She must dodge the police and her mortal enemy as she unravels the connection between this woman, the partially unsolved case of a kidnapped child, her friend's blackmailer, and the person who threatens her mother's life.
After decades of violence, a far future neo-Victorian city is now split between four crime families. 22 year old Jacqueline Spadros, forced to marry a mob boss, finds bits of freedom as a small-time private eye. But her murdered best friend's little brother disappears. A mortal enemy and her ex-lover appear. Then someone starts following her. That's when matters turn terrifying and deadly.
