My first novel, Renegade the Hunter was published in 2003. In it, we journey to another world to tell the story of the Hunters or tautschen, civlized carnivores whose outlook on life is very different from ours. The young man, Renegade, and his two friends are being trained for their Master Hunt, in which they either bring down the most dangerous beast they can find--or they could die in the die. They are on their own set down on worlds they do not know. They also do not know that someone in authority doesn't want them to succeed.
My second novel RENEGADE the Warrior, came out in 2006. We follow Renegade and his friends Rampage and Dasrylion as they become master hunters and now warriors, trvelling across the stars to try to defeat a dangerous alien species. Rejoin the Hunt as your favorite characters return.
The newest book in the series,"The Mission to Earth," is now out and available everywhere including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.\and local stores. The action takes place right here on Earth about 20 years after the events in "Renegade the Warrior," as Humans and Hunters attempt to make a peace treaty following the defeat of a dangerous mutual enemy. But can the two sides trust each other? And even as they gather for a grand meeting in New York City, a terrorist group lurks in the shdows, ready to destroy that alliance, no matter what it takes
Following this book, I hope to have the "in-between" books published, about the war with the Enemy, Renegade's part in it; and the courageous battles to overcome it. This next book should be called "The Boding," and I am working on it now.
After punching a typewriter and later computer keyboard all my life as a reporter and news editior, I finally started writing fiction when I came to western Michigan. The result? Three Sci-fi books about the civilized carnivores called the tautschen or Hunters: Renegade the Hunter, Renegade the Warrior, and The Mission to Earth, along with about 15 published short stories (so far.) in magazines like Golden Visions, Strange, Weird & Wonderful, Aiofe's Kiss, Crossed Genres and more.
