America was still a young nation experiencing growing pains. As more white people migrated into the Colorado Territory, forcibly displacing its original tenants, the inevitable result was tension.
This is the story of three men who would leave their mark on this American frontier: Emerson Granger, a peaceful man born in an isolated homestead on the Colorado front range, during an episode of horrific violence; abolitionist Silas Soule, who came west to crusade against slavery; and John Chivington, a fiery Midwestern preacher hoping to make a name for himself.
As the whites continued encroaching on Indian land, and the Indians fought back, bloody clashes were inescapable. Friends and family, lovers and foes, none would be spared from the building tension.That tension boiled over in an act of unspeakable brutality, at a remote and unremarkable settlement known as Sand Creek
Jack Simile and the Phantom Fury
Jack Hobbes is nobody special. His life is less than exciting. Daily routines rule his existence. Then, on his way to work one morning, he sees a care identical to his own. Being driven by someone identical to him. The first time is enough to make him think he’s going crazy. But when it keeps happening, he realizes that he’s getting a glimpse of himself in the future. That’s pretty cool, until he see what the future holds.
Will the universe allow him to change his own future, or will he be a helpless victim of time? And what does Albert Einstein have to do with it? Part contemporary sci-fi, part historical fiction, Jack Simile and the Phantom Fury is a fast and fun joyride toward “The End.”
The Lost Colony
Searching for the wreck of an eighteenth-century Spanish treasure ship, underwater salvage expert Jax Malone discovers an uncharted island, and the Holy Grail of historical mysteries. When he and his crew are attacked by natives on the island, the Americans are rescued by an unlikely troop of soldiers from the past, descendants of the English colonists who were sent to settle the New World over four centuries ago – then vanished without a trace.
Stranded on this island, Jax and his crew are relieved to be among civilized people, and exploring the old world commonwealth that they’ve built. But they gradually find that things are not as they seem. When their group becomes separated between the English and the natives, the Americans discover that their survival is further threatened by another force, one which they have even less control over.
All We Hold Dear
After the murder of her grandmother, Denver woman Dora Baskin inherits her home, a 172-year-old log house in Manitou Springs, Colorado, at the base of Pikes Peak. Was the murder a random act of violence, or something more sinister?
With her new friend, estate liquidator Shawn Murphy, Dora gradually finds the answer in a handwritten account of one of her ancestors, Isadora Byrnes, a nineteenth century Englishwoman taken in by a Cherokee family in Georgia. In the pages of this journal, they learn about the secret Irish crime organization which spent decades pursuing Isadora Byrnes to America, beyond the Trail of Tears and into the Rocky Mountains, seeking to acquire the mysterious silver artifact she possessed.
They also find that this organization is still around, and they still want that artifact.
And they think Dora has it.
Inspired by real-life Englishwoman Isabella Bird, Isadora Byrnes gradually learns to adapt to life in the relatively lawless New World. While attempting to fight the injustices leveled against its natives, she develops lifelong friendships, passionate romances and abiding family relationships. And through her writings, she teaches her modern-day descendant a thing or two.
Trial By Fire
Dora Baskin’s family history is about to catch up with her. Again.
After finding a valuable family treasure (in All We Hold Dear), Dora Baskin, a Colorado woman, receives a visit from her father, whom she thought was dead. As he revisits his past in the ancestral estate, with hopes of cashing in on his daughter’s wealth, his current troubles, particularly in the person of a New Jersey hit man, have followed him, landing at Dora’s doorstep.
Trial by Fire is a tale of passion, deceit and murder spanning one hundred years. From the Colorado Labor Wars in post-gold rush Pikes Peak to modern-day Manitou Springs, the final showdown rages against the backdrop of the worst forest fire in Colorado history.
