He didn’t expect to find love in officer’s training—so when an assignment took him away from Kevin Kendrick, the love of his life, he sacrificed personal happiness and did his duty.
Kevin has made his own sacrifices. Career came first, and the impressionable Army brat, tired of living in his father’s shadow, pledged his loyalty to his country and followed his ambition.

But Kevin’s past isn’t through with him yet, and when an old enemy surfaces, the two men realize that they must face the nightmares of the past together if they are to have the future they dream of.

Edge remembers little of his capture but all of what has happened since. Sold to the Waxians, he resists their efforts to gain information on the Trivator military and weapons systems. He can feel his mind splinter from their repeated tortures, but a soft voice in the darkness urges him to resist—and fight back.
Lina Daniels is used to fighting fire with fire. She isn’t afraid of death, but she is terrified of being captured. As a resistance fighter on Earth, she knew the dangers. Those threats seem minuscule compared to those on the alien world she was taken to.
Determined to return home, her plan is simple—free the Trivator warrior she discovered and force him to take her and the other women that are with her back to Earth. That plan turns out just as hazardous as being a fugitive on an alien world! The last thing Lina expects is for the Trivator to have an intense protectiveness of her or his stubborn determination in believing she is his Amate!

With the Waxian and Drethulan forces on their tail, it will take more than a few daring moves to escape to freedom. Can a tortured warrior and his rebellious rescuer escape the forces chasing them or will the threat of losing the last thing holding him together hurl Edge over the precipice and into insanity?

What would you do if you were stranded halfway around the world when it crumbled? The world collapsed after the spread of the hyper-aggressive H5N1 Avian plague and several airborne mutations. By simply breathing the air, billions upon billions around the world died in less than a few months' time.
Soon after, technology and infrastructure disintegrated. Electricity is gone; there are no cell phones, Internet, television or much else. Humanity lies in waste, disease and ruin. Among the remaining survivors, one very rare gene in the human DNA surfaced as resistant to the onslaught.
Stuck in the remote mining town of Mudgee, Australia, Airborne Special Forces Colonel Connor MacMillen survives the dark and dangerous times. Motivated by family, he intends to get home to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania--or rather, the Fayette Mountains south of Pittsburgh. He has unfinished business to attend to there.
After four impossible years traveling in a post-apocalyptic world, Connor Mac lands in San Francisco and commences the last leg of his journey across the continental United States.
DEVASTATION POINT begins Connor Mac's exploits in the fifth year of the New Dark Ages as he encounters a strange and changed America turned upside down by the "Cuckoo Flu".
Encountering new friends as well as making fierce enemies along the way, his personal journey reveals a furious and confident fight for life. But, unbeknownst to Connor Mac, his journey to get home is noticed by those still in power in America; and they’re looking for him. It seems he is decidedly different than most men left standing. While all living men are infertile, he is still able to reproduce. And, that changes everything.
DEVASTATION POINT takes a comprehensive look at how one man, trained by America's best, would respond to a world completely altered by the pandemic destruction. To Connor Mac, family connections are critical and returning home can be a prime motivator for one last and final mission.
“DEVASTATION POINT stands head and shoulders over the pulp that permeates the post-apocalyptic genre.”
"A full and complete first novel of over 250,000 words, aficionados of the post-apocalyptic genre will fully enjoy reading this."
"This is an exploration of what it might take to smartly survive the apocalypse and still retain the higher elements of what it means to be human. Sorry, but there are no Zombies.”
Fooled into thinking her a priceless virgin and captivated by her pale skinned, two-breasted frame, he abducts her, or at least means to. His plan goes somewhat awry. The not-so-innocent human becomes his partner in crime instead of his prisoner, and together they form an unstoppable duo. Tales of their misdeeds and budding passion become a universal sensation, but there’s no room in a mercenary’s life for a mate. Or is there?
For the first time in his life, the Mercenary’s Guide to Prosperity doesn’t have an answer to Makl’s questions, and there’s no visible threat for him to kill. What’s a poor, purple mercenary to do? Admit he’s in love – or ditch the delectable human?

This is the true-life story of what happens when scores of young girls live intimately together in a French military barracks. Many of these girls, utterly innocent and inexperienced, meet other women who have lived every type of existence. Their problems, their temptations, their fights and failures are those faced by all women who are forced to live together during dangerous and stressful times. The girls who chose Tereska Torres, the author, as their confidante poured out to her their most intimate feelings, their secret thoughts.
With all of its revelations and tenderness, Women’s Barracks is an important book because it tells a story that had never been truly told before--the story of women in war. It also has the special distinction of being the first “lesbian pulp” novel ever published and became a record-breaking bestseller.
This autobiographical novel takes place in London, England during World War II. The terror of the V-1 and V-2 rocket bombings, and the resulting fires and destruction, are an unknown experience to most readers. The women enduring these events were not even 20 years old when they first arrived. Many volunteered to be there. They were French, or of French heritage, and wanted to be part of the effort to help protect France from invasion by the Nazis. Throughout it all, passions flare, long-standing taboos are tossed to the wind, and passionate relationships are begun between older, more experienced butch officers and the young, inexperienced femme girls under their charge.
In her telling of these women’s stories, Torres remains nonjudgmental of the lesbian relationships these women explored. Perhaps as a result, Women’s Barracks was banned in several states for being obscene. The House Select Committee on Current Pornographic Materials denounced the book in 1952 as an illustration of how the newly emerging paperback industry was breeding and promoting moral depravity. By today’s standards, of course, the book is somewhat tame; however, the eroticism and honesty with which Torres writes immerses the reader in the love, tenderness, loyalty and passion that women share with each other.
