IN THIS LIFE
When psychologist Lottie Morgan meets Galen, their encounter is as intense as it is eye-opening. Something about him is familiar. His looks. His words. His touch.
Lottie can’t resist the urge to know more about him, or the smoldering memories that surface every time he’s near. Only Galen’s keeping a dangerous secret, one linked to a life shared thousands of years ago. One that could destroy the relationship Lottie has with her current lover David.
One that is about to cost Lottie her life. Again.
Take a trip to mysterious ancient Egypt, where powerful passions ignite and deadly deceptions begin. The Past Life Series starts here.
Everyone wants something. Even if it belongs to someone else.
And some will destroy the very thing they want, just so no one else can have it.
Professional soldier David Bellotti’s latest mission seems simple: steal the key card to a drug lord’s compound so the empire can be infiltrated and destroyed. But when David discovers evidence of his lover Lottie’s possible infidelity, his mission turns personal. He searches for answers others would kill to keep buried and discovers a link to the past he’s been trying hard to ignore.
Ancient lives, twelve thousand year old secrets, murder, and primal instincts lead David on a journey through past lives and present danger all to save the woman he loves.
Find your way back through alternate history, when hunter-gatherers roamed and David and Lottie’s supernatural incarnations began.
David Bellotti’s only focus is to find his abducted twelve-year old daughter. When he sees her on a news segment with her captor, a renowned archaeologist who’s made a major discovery, David sets out to bring her back home. But the search leads him to a secret message that could alter man’s history forever.
A message David and his daughter inscribed twelve-thousand years ago.
A message that will prove dangerous in the wrong hands.
Protecting this powerful information seems simple until David realizes some people will use his daughter against him to get it, at whatever the cost. Now David must make a choice. Protect mankind from a secret past that must remain hidden, or save his little girl.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A life long interest in speculative fiction comics, books, and movies and a desire to give something back to the genre. My alternate history stories such as the “Greater Britain” series were motivated at least in part by my disappointment that post WW2 – Britain was no longer a great power. In my stories they survive WW2 and the years beyond as the third superpower. In one of my stories I re-write the 1956 Suez Crisis with more favourable results for Britain but rather less favourable results for the US and the USSR.

Clayton Cane has lived with violence for all of his existence.
With a scarred face giving him the feared nickname El Mosaico, Cane has crossed the country as a bounty hunter and left trails of dead behind him.
But Cane is more than just a hulking gunslinger – he’s a monster, assembled from the body parts of corpses stitched together and brought to life with black magic. As a bounty hunter, mercenary and soldier of fortune, he takes the weird jobs that bring him into contact with creatures and forces as strange as him, ranging from monstrous rats in a New York slum to bloodthirsty vampires in a secluded mountain pass.
But Cane has always longed for something different – an end to living from day to day and bullet to bullet.
And in the town of Hellfire, Texas, he just might find it. His only allies include a slippery snake oil salesman, a strong-willed schoolteacher and a brash Mexican bandito, while his foe is the very man who created him, years ago.
The battle for Hellfire – and for Clayton Cane – is about to begin.
