Five calm and uneventful years have elapsed since Thomas Clark altered the timeline, effectively saving the world from extinction.  His actions, however, left him tormented with the sole knowledge and weight of the previous timeline’s horrors; a cost he readily accepted now that Abby, his sister, has become part of his life.  In time his terrible dreams subsided, with the help of his wife, Laura, and his Hawaiian life with his family and friends was blissful. 

But now, five years later, Thomas’ nightmares have returned with a vengeance.  Not only that, he also discovers he’s not the only family member to experience flashbacks from the former timeline, which should be impossible.  As confusion ensues his family and friends are beset by a random series of events, events that will push their families to their limits in…Shadows of the Faceless.

My very first novel, Shadows of the Mind, I began when I was nineteen. Unfortunately I ended up leaving it behind to do what everyone else is forced to do and work for money. Twenty-one years later I found it, dusted it off and decided to finally take a stab at my life long dream.  A number of months later, in early 2011, I self-published my novel and subsequently held my creation in my hands for the very first time.  It was an unbelievable feeling of accomplishment.

Initially I envisioned my Shadow series would contain at least seven books. And I have to stress 'at least' because my have fallen in love with my characters would inevitably plan my horrific death if I hinted that their adventures had come to an end :).  It's weird how my characters have grown through their experiences and actions. It's like they talk to me and tell me to keep putting them in harm's way regardless of the outcome that may come from it. And as a writer, who am I to say "no" to my characters, that are as real and tangible as they have become through my books.


  Book 13

Thomas Clark and his family have gone public, and because of that, the whole world knows who they are and the abilities they possess.  And those who view Thomas as both a threat and a shift in the balance of world power, now seek to eliminate him from the board.  

Under the watchful eye of the FBI, the first assassination attempt on the family fails, but provides the first clue that a powerful state actor, the Vatican, was behind the attack.  As the family scurries for safety, who else will jump into the fray?  Find out…in Shadows of the Order.
