On this site, I will introduce you to the characters and worlds of my novels, IT GIVES YOU STRENGTH, and HARVESTING EARTHLINGS FOR FUN AND PROFIT. Both are a mash up of science-fiction, historical fiction and fantasy. 


IT GIVES YOU STRENGTH is set in New York during prohibition.  An alien scientist is sent on a rescue mission to the primitive planet Earth, only to wind up in a mob war over control of the bootleg whiskey route from Canada to NYC. In STRENGTH, the fictional characters interact with actual actual historical figures, including mobster Jack “Legs” Diamond, heavyweight boxing champion Jack Dempsey, and in WW1 heroine Edith Cavell. For more information about the plot see the about the book page.


In HARVESTING EARTHLINGS FOR FUN AND PROFIT it is eight years later, the height of the Great Depression. The Alien is now hiding in NYC, a refugee. The Idyllic planet Dagan is now run by a ruthless dictator, who plans to kidnap Earthlings to fight in an intergalactic version of the Roman Coliseum.  To thwart the dictator the Alien elicits the aid of fictional characters and actual historical figures J. Edgar Hoover, Jack Dempsey and Edith Cavell.  The book is set in Washington DC, Chicago, New York, and the fictional planet Dagan.
