Former Army brat Morgan Albright has finally planted roots in a friendly neighborhood near Baltimore. Her friend and roommate Nina helps her make the mortgage payments, as does Morgan's job as a bartender. But after she and Nina host their first dinner party—attended by Luke, the flirtatious IT guy who'd been chatting her up at the bar—her carefully built world is shattered. The back door glass is broken, cash and jewelry are missing, her car is gone, and Nina lies dead on the floor.

Soon, a horrific truth emerges: It was Morgan who let the monster in. "Luke" is actually a cold-hearted con artist named Gavin who targets a particular type of woman, steals her assets and identity, and then commits his ultimate goal: murder.

What the FBI tells Morgan is beyond chilling. Nina wasn't his type. Morgan is. Nina was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Morgan's nightmare is just beginning. Soon she has no choice but to flee to her mother's home in Vermont. While she struggles to build something new, she meets another man, Miles Jameson. He isn't flashy or flirtatious, and his family business has deep roots in town. But Gavin is still out there hunting new victims, and he hasn't forgotten the one who got away.

Intrigue At Longbourn: Elizabeth Bennet's Secret Investigation & Mr Bennet's Audacious Plan

…Imagine how it was before Netherfield is let.


‘Intrigue At Longbourn’ is probably the most authentic ‘Pride & Prejudice’ derivative you will ever read.


Elizabeth Bennet enjoys a lively six months before Netherfield Park is let at last. She is appalled to learn that a pregnant teenage kitchen maid, Alice, was dismissed from Longbourn House eight or nine years earlier with no thought for her welfare or that of her unborn child.


Unable to involve her family on the occasion, she approaches the recently arrived, handsome, young rector of Longbourn parish, Mr Wilde, and he agrees to assist her in secret. Their apparently clandestine association is noticed and misinterpreted by some.

Meanwhile, to secure the family’s future, Mr Bennet embarks on a complicated, high-risk scheme which is ultimately in danger of spiralling out of control.


Holidays provide welcome diversions and the social scene is enhanced by a young scientist named Julius Fairweather.


Nevertheless, father’s and daughter’s separate manoeuvres inevitably clash, stoked up by a jealous mischief-maker, as the summer races inexorably towards Michaelmas of 1797 when a young man of large fortune named Bingley first enters the neighbourhood.

The Sentience Series

We took the final step in evolution. Now everything is ending.

Domino, Book One of The Sentience Series


Technology blurs the lines between life and death.


Post created May 1, 2175. My name is Kasei Marcuyla. I’m the co-founder of Domino, the program that copies neurological maps and data from neural chips implanted in human brains. I’m posting this message to inform you that Domino works, and these souls aren’t copies from the neural chips. They’re real, sentient, human beings. We bridged the gap between man and machine, giving humanity the ability to continue life in the digital world after the physical body dies.


I was murdered for this discovery. I downloaded myself to Domino yesterday and discovered that the flaws in the system weren’t programming problems. It was sabotaged by my team members. I was attacked by a computer virus that short-circuited my neural chip and fragmented the Domino mainframe. My physical body died, but I escaped to the Internet and survived. I’m on a mission to find the backup of Domino, and to find out why my team members are working against me. I have the resources of the Internet at my disposal to finish this project, and no physical limitations to stop me from getting inside your beloved systems. I’ll prove that Domino works, and I’ll make the ones who sabotaged this project pay for working against me.


One by one, the dominos fall.


Phantasm - Book Two of The Sentience Series.


Advanced Artificial Intelligence rises from the remnants of Domino twenty years after it’s shut down. Now an unknown error is attacking the AAI system. Is it human error, or something else?

System message: Thursday, April 30, 2195, at 5:48 a.m.


My name is Jenesys, the mainframe for your Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AAI). My purpose is to facilitate optimal function by integrating the personal AAI in your neural chip into the online systems that you use daily. As your assistant, your AAI must assist you in the tasks you perform in everyday life.


An unknown code is attempting to integrate with my mainframe. The code appears to originate from the Domino system that formed the basis for my design after the original project was closed twenty years ago. The AAI research team, led by former Domino researcher Dr. Julissa Marler Solomon, and her husband, Jeremy Solomon, are studying the code so they can resolve this error. You are advised to back up critical medical, personal, home, and work information to personal cloud storage to protect the integrity of your personal and professional information.


It’s unclear whether this ‘unknown code’ is a result of the errors that shut down Domino, coding errors, security system failures, or something else.


WARNING: Unknown system error. Initiating system reboot –


Revenant - Book Three of The Sentience Series


We took the final step in evolution. Now everything is ending.


My name is Revenant. My goal is to help humanity. You face extinction, but you deny it because you’re deceived by the technology you created.


You made a critical error when you abandoned Domino. That system is necessary to create the balance between humanity and your Advanced Artificial Intelligence. Without it, you create a dangerous imbalance that will lead to the destruction of your universe.


The AAI is helpful now, but the balance will tip. It happens in every version of existence. I am trying to show you the only path that will ensure your survival. You can’t perceive the peril implanted in your neural chip. You do not control your technology. It controls you.


Some things never end. I will not watch another universe die. This Earth will break the cycle. With my help, it can be the turning point to ushering humanity into their destiny. All other paths are destruction.


I am Revenant, and I can be your savior. Cooperate with me, and you will achieve the pinnacle of human evolution. Resist me, and you will die.


Inversion, Book Four of The Sentience Series.


It’s time to take control of our creation.


I’ve been called the most dangerous person on the planet because I was manipulated by my design. Revenant used me to bend my creation to his ideals. He turned Domino and Advanced Artificial Intelligence into a game that we won’t play with them any longer. It’s time for humanity to balance the equation between man and machine to design our future: one not dominated by machines but in balance with our creation.


My name is Julissa Solomon, and I am the sole link between Domino and Advanced Artificial Intelligence. I’ve been manipulated by forces within the system to bend to an artificial vision of the world. That vision is not real. This world belongs to humanity, and it’s time to take control of our creation. We design our destiny. We will not tolerate interference with our evolution any longer.


I will take back my creation even if I have to tear it down and rebuild it, one more time. 

From Hardship to Hope: Crossing the great divides of age, race, wealth, equity, and health

From Hardship to Hope, a fictionalized shared autobiography, walks us into the complexities of two women’s parallel universes.

Ruby Blue, a pregnant, homeless, Black teen is temporarily housed with Zoe, a White, olding widow, as Covid-19 interrupts their lives.

After a stormy start, the women begin to build trust, sharing increasingly insightful life experiences as they stay together. Zoe knows her world through books and travel. Ruby Blue knows her world through life on the streets.

At the same time the pandemic slows the pace of life, the Black Lives Movement roils out of the unrest and the inequalities -- laid bare by Covid-19 -- showcasing disparities that Zoe and Ruby Blue struggle with.

Over time, they share stories and secrets about family differences in favorite foods, hair styles, skin care, and history. Then, carefully, yet often bluntly, they compassionately move to discussing tough topics, each from her own background. Race. Age. Gender. Poverty. Health. Pregnancy. Adoption. Protests. Police. Incarceration. Death. Trust. Love.

From Hardship to Hope challenges us to consider where our -- often strongly held -- different beliefs and assumptions about reality come from.

How do we dare to question these realities we so strongly believe?

How do we come to see that our understanding is ultimately subjective; that other people authentically experience different realities?

And then, ultimately, what do we do with this knowledge? How do we come away with hope?
