Book 1
A New York Times cookbook best-seller.

Nom Nom Paleo is a visual feast, crackling with humor and packed with stunningly photographed step-by-step recipes free of gluten, soy, and added sugar. Designed to inspire the whole family to chow down on healthy, home-cooked meals, this cookbook compiles over 100 foolproof paleo recipes that demonstrate how fun and flavorful cooking with wholesome ingredients can be. And did we mention the cartoons?

Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more.

But the heart of this book are Michelle's award-winning primal Paleo recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app. Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder. These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback.

There's something for everyone in this cookbook, from small bites like Apple Chips and Kabalagala (Ugandan plantain fritters) to family-sized platters of Coconut Pineapple "Rice" and Siu Yoke (crispy roast pork belly). Crave exotic spices? You won't be able to resist the fragrant aromas of Fast Pho or Mulligatawny Soup. In the mood for down-home comforts? Make some Yankee Pot Roast or Chicken Nuggets drizzled with Lemon Honey Sauce. When a quick weeknight meal is in order, Nom Nom Paleo can show you how to make Crispy Smashed Chicken or Whole-Roasted Branzini in less than 30 minutes. And for a cold treat on a hot day, nothing beats Paleo-diet-friendly Mocha Popsicles or a two-minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream.

Eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. This book gives you "Paleo with personality," and will make you excited to play in the kitchen again.

Phoenix O'Halloran, Red to her friends, is a brash, in your face journalist who always gets her story. Having long ago lost touch with her emotions, except righteous indignation, she now has a very strange problem. Her subconscious has acquired a voice of its own. It's insisting it’s an extraterrestrial alien who needs her help. Not only that, he's her mate.

Long ago Trian was a member of a team aboard a galactic defense spaceship, sent to stop an invasion of Earth. An unsavory group of demonic aliens wanted Earth for its mineral resources. They had no qualms about removing any obstacles in their way, planets, civilizations and anyone sent to stop them. It didn’t go well for Earth’s defenders. Immortal yet frozen in stone they had no choice except to wait out the eons. An ancient prophecy told that only through the compassion of spiritually evolved humans would each of them be freed. And there’s the first problem.

Phoenix knows she wouldn’t know compassion if she fell over it. She certainly isn’t spiritually evolved. Though she now lives in Boswell and she has had the retrovirus to repair her DNA she still can’t do anything like the others around her. She can’t telepath, except with the one voice in her head, she can’t teleport and she’s shown no sign of any other special skills. She’s the least likely person to help Trian yet it appears fate has decreed she’s the one. Then there’s the other problem. The stone that is currently Trian is holding up the side of a mountain. If that mountain side falls...

Mysticism, menage and paranormal mayhem in this final of the series. As the world hurtles towards apocalypse twins Astra and Brenin are asked to enter the cursed space-time anomaly that is Atlantis. They will have to use everything at their disposal: courage, love and friendship if they are to undo the curse that is pulling down the whole planet. Meanwhile Triglav is on the run, sentenced to death for a past he has faced but justice is demanded. Simon must own up to something that happened long ago, something he has hidden until now.


Astra wrapped the night around her, to conceal herself from any unseen prying eyes then she made her way over to their comatose bodies. She fished through pockets, photographically memorized names on drivers licenses and details of other documents she found on them. She planted small, wafer thin RFID tags deep within their wallets. Noting one guy’s well worn and assumedly much loved gold ring she carefully removed it and found a small space behind the gemstone it held. Just big enough to hide a small, almost transparent, voice activated transmitter. Then she carefully put everything back the way she found it and walked away, just in time. Jessup was driving back as he circled the block.  

She took a moment to release the dark and her hold on the thugs minds then she dived into the passenger seat of the waiting car. “Hit the gas Jessup. They’re waking up.”

As his foot hit the accelerator he frowned at the waking thugs in the revision mirror. “How the hell did you…?”

Astra glared at him. “What did I tell you when you first became my partner?”

“Three monkeys.”

“Exactly. You saw nothing strange, heard nothing strange. You will tell no-one.”

Jessup shook his head to clear it. He’d seen her step out of a dark abyss and then the waking thugs were there. At least that’s what he thought he saw. No, he wasn’t putting that in his report. He’d be spending time with his workplace’s shrink if he did. Definitely didn’t see anything. “You have my word Jas.”

And his word was good. “I know I do.” Time had proven that.

 One minute he'd been Michael Williams, six foot four, short cut brown
hair and unassuming brown eyes. The next minute he'd found himself in a
vast boundless void of light and space with no point of reference. It
was immensely peaceful with a sense of oneness and connectedness with
everything . Then he was spat out the other side, confronted by a woman
with sea-green eyes and hair the color of softly spun gold that flowed
down her back. Horror stills Michael to the core as he realizes that he
has travelled not just through space but time as well and this wondrous
woman is destined to fight to save his planet from an invasion of aliens
from the lower dimensions. Only trouble is she's going to be on the
losing side. Kiana's a warrior and her kind don't interfere with free
will or destiny."

"If I must face what I must face tomorrow though, I have something to ask of you.  It may even be the reason you came.”
help him, he thought he’d sell his soul if she wanted it. “Ask away.
 If there is anything I can do it would make me feel a bit less damn
helpless right at this moment.”
Kiana didn’t hesitate.  If tomorrow was her doom then she wanted her moment with this amazing man. “Mate me.”


midnight her sixth sense woke Sarah.  Looking up amongst the stars she
saw a strange and wondrous sight.  A real UFO was coming into land due
south of her position.  It was unlike any aircraft she had ever seen.
 It was only because of her keen sight that she was able to make out its
almost circular shape. There were no obvious portals or windows.  Its
mirror like surface sparkled like a myriad of diamonds. It wasn’t in any
stealth mode.  It hovered over the land for a moment and then seemingly
disappeared straight into the earth.
Her curiosity got the
better of her. She banked her fire, gathered up her spear and her few
belongings and headed off in the direction of the UFO.
