#1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller – Worlds Collide. Heroes Arise.
A Plane Crash… A Hidden Valley… A Mysterious Civilization… An Ancient Prophecy… A Cataclysmic Scheme… Five Unlikely Heroes
Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends – Jag, Mariah, Kody, Tegan and Aari – flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.
In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity’s horizon.
In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.
As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.
A Missing World War II Bomber… A Baffling Contagion… Widespread Famine … Nations at the Brink of War… An Apocalyptic Prophecy… Five Unlikely Heroes.
On a bright July morning in 1948, a B-29 Super-fortress flying a top-secret research mission over Nevada crashes into the calm waters of Lake Mead and sinks, remaining lost for half a century.
It has been nearly a year since five friends – Jag, Kody, Mariah, Tegan and Aari – mysteriously reappeared in a small town in Yukon several weeks after their small plane went down in Northern Canada. All were found unharmed but with no recollection of what happened to them after the accident.
A baffling contagion is spreading across the bread-basket of North America destroying vital crops. As this dark shadow marches across the globe, widespread famine and riots bring desperate nations to the brink of war.
These seemingly unrelated events set the stage for a battle between the forces of darkness and those destined to become the ‘bearers of light’. From ravaged fields in the Great Plains to clandestine installations around the world, the Aegis League must race against time to save humanity.

“Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts. You need to start somewhere.”
~ Anne Lamott
Boy, ain’t that the truth. I recall how frustrated I’d be in my earliest days of writing when a scene or chapter didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. It would then be either heavily edited or scrapped altogether. However painful a process it is, it’s entirely necessary for growth (good writing comes with constant practice, after all!). It’s funny, really, because when I was younger I’d write short stories out of the blue and they’d be decent—or so I was told—but when it came down to doing the tango with my first novel, my fingers would dance a lot slower over the keyboard, if at all. As with anything, though, the more you partake of a task, the easier it generally gets. Still, we usually are our own harshest critic…
Someone I know recently asked how I felt about my writing. Without really giving it much thought, I told him that I’m never satisfied with it and am constantly looking for ways to improve, which in itself isn’t a bad thing. The problem is that that mentality, if prolonged, can lead to an unhealthy cycle where we’re not pleased with anything we produce. I ended up mulling over his question again a few days later and decided to open up the feedback I’d received so far from my advance readers for Aegis Evolution, the third book in the series which I am currently working on. Their words were more than just unbiasedly encouraging—they were the precise kick in the pants I needed to snap out of my writer’s blues. With fresh eyes, I printed out the first twenty chapters of the manuscript and went over it with a red pen. Though I’d proofread quite a bit, I was delighted to find that my writing actually wasn’t as nearly off the mark as I’d imagined.
I’ve learned throughout the past five or six years that you really can’t write alone. At least, I can’t. If it were left entirely to me, my work would never leave the confines of my laptop as I’d never be satisfied enough to let them see the light of day. But I have a wonderful support system of family, friends and readers who help quiet the tiny inner screaming critic in me every now and then, and I cannot be more thankful. To any aspiring writer, please do yourself a loving favor and have at least one honest person stick around as you work. It will help keep you grounded in more ways than one!
