I am the author of two book series, The Push Chronicles and Three Seconds to Legend. Laid out below are the covers, each with a link to the book, as well as a quick blurb, just to wet your whistle!
Unlike real life, Max is pretty good at playing games, so when a new limited time dungeon opens up in the virtual reality game he plays boasting a huge cash prize, Max knows he needs to try and complete it if he wants to be able to pay rent this month.
Fortunately, the only guild strong enough to attempt to take it on before the timer runs out needs a tank.
There’s just one problem, he’s never played with them before, and even if he convinces the Sisters of Artemis to let him join in time to tank the dungeon and collect the prize money, if they wipe, it’s all over.
That would be bad because without that prize money, both he and his baby sister will be sleeping in a cardboard box under a bridge, and Max really hates sleeping in cardboard boxes. Been there, done that, sold the T-shirt
A prince in danger, an epic quest, and a cup of coffee, all at your local Easy-E-Mart!
Follow the misadventures of four-foot tall convenience store clerk Mary Stone and her luxurious beard as she finds out that life is even stranger than it already was when a literal Elf stumbles into the Easy-E-Mart after midnight. Within an hour, Mary finds out that magic is real, dragons are real, and she is a Dwarf instead of a short, bearded lady. Oh, also that her new friend is on the run from thugs, a wererabbit bounty hunter, and a reptilian businessman.
It might have been safe if she’d just stayed in the store that night!
Clans of Shadows (with J. A. Cipriano)
My name is Frank Butcher, and when I got out of my truck to deliver the last package of the day, I never expected to get blown up by anti-magic zealots.
Yeah, you heard me right. I said magic. I didn’t know it was a thing either.
Now, an ancient artifact is the only thing keeping me alive, and to make matters worse, that artifact is what those cultists wanted.
Still, I could have made a run for it, disappeared down into South America and spent the rest of my life on a beach. I nearly did it, but I didn’t.
Why? Because the cultists have offered me a trade. Come to them or they start killing kids.
My name is Frank Butcher, and evidently when you save the world, it comes back for seconds.
After I stopped a world ending apocalypse, my allies tried to cut open my chest with an axe. Kind of messed up, if you ask me.
Thankfully, I’ve got a chance to return the favor. And I’m going to take it. Not because they’re trying to magically reshape the natural laws that govern our planet. No, I’m doing this because trying to cut out my heart is not okay.
Remember what I said about saving the world? Yeah, apparently the third time is the charm.
Turns out our little plan to stop the apocalypse left the gate open for some bastards straight out of HP Lovecraft. Now they’ve come on through to try to turn the planet into an all you can eat buffet.
That’s not exactly my jam, so if I want to go on living here, I’ll need to find a way to stop them.
My name is Frank Butcher, and one way or another, I’m putting an end to this once and for all.
