From before the time of Christ, there have been rumors of a secret society called The Illuminati...a vicious tribe of Druids with mystical, supernatural powers. Many saw them as demons or gods. Those who opposed them simply disappeared...or met an even worse fate.

Unknown to all but the very few, this group slowly infiltrated world organizations and financial institutions with a singular goal--to control the world's economic system.

Now fast-forward to the year 2020. The Illuminati has succeeded in placing one of their people in the office of the presidency of the United States. With the worldwide launch of a financial system known as Data-Net, they suddenly have the power to single out groups of people and control their money, fuel, and food supply. How do you escape an unknown enemy operating at the highest levels who can track your every move? And how do you defeat a society that practices ancient rituals and appears to have power beyond the grave?

The Illuminati

is a futuristic thriller tied to ancient mysticism that will appeal to fans of The DaVinci Code and the Left Behind series. It will also leave readers wondering where fact ends and fiction begins.

Just below the surface among the family of God lives another family tree--one traced in spirit, invisible and ageless, known as the Watchers. For two thousand years they've seen beyond the veil separating this world from the next, passing on their gift through a lineage mostly overlooked. Throughout history they've scouted the borders of the supernatural frontier, but now their survival hangs by a thread. And their fate lies in the hands of a young woman, her would-be killer, and a mystery they must solve. . . .

"Congratulations. You just reached my own little corner of cyberspace.
Who am I?
Abby Sherman, that's who.
Who are you? And why are you checking me out?
Drop me a few pixels, and let's find out!"

With that innocent invitation, Abby Sherman unwittingly steps in the crosshairs of history, and thus begins her harrowing tale--taking her from ocean-front Malibu to the streets of London, the jungles in West Africa, the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and to the very gates of heaven itself!

A sneak preview of eternity becomes her one-way ticket to danger--and discovery. . . .

Two lives collide in a globe-circling adventure involving both peril and discovery: Abby, a young woman whose visions of heaven turn her into a Web-celebrity; and Dylan, a troubled young man sent by an ancient foe to silence her. From California beachfronts to Nigerian rain forests to Jerusalem and back again, The Watchers is high-octane blends of action, mystery, and spiritual battle spanning centuries.

A woman's awe-inspiring vision launches her on a quest through distant lands and ancient history, face-to-face with eternity and into the arms of a family line on the brink of annihilation . . .

A man who is hired to exterminate her discovers the folly of blind loyalty, then learns how to wage war in a realm he never believed had existed . . .

An extraordinary saga of the unseen war against evil, the reality of the supernatural, and the transforming power of forgiveness.
The Merry Band of Misfits have returned home after a harrowing adventure in the desert of Egypt. But their lives have been forever changed. Danny MacKenzie (Danny Mac) is recovering from a gunshot wound by taking a bullet meant for Angelo, his former enemy. Angelo is now his closest ally and marveling as to why Danny Mac would do that. Danny Mac points him to the man from Galilee. Danny Mac’s greatest focus is getting Kenann to trust him and agree to be his wife. His patience is stretched to the limit when she is again attacked by their enemy. Kenann feared she was having a mental breakdown. She was hearing voices and losing time. But when the enemy finally showed their hand, the Merry Band of Misfits springs back into action.

Granny James calms her granddaughter’s fears at giving her whole heart to Danny Mac. Mrs. Gage, the incredible International Woman of Mystery, pulls off an impromptu wedding extraordinaire. Andy, CIA operative, and Judy, Kenann’s best friend, finally declare their love and orchestrate a diversion to allow Danny Mac and Kenann to honeymoon away from the threat of their enemies. Unfortunately, their ranks are infiltrated and Danny Mac and Kenann are forced to defend themselves at their remote cabin. Danny Mac soon finds his new bride stays cool under pressure and is skilled in combat. His kind of woman.

Carter, the CIA section chief, returns and enlists the crew (officially this time) to assist government forces in going after the secret society who have set their sights on Danny Mac and Kenann. Every man, woman (and boy) comes back on deck. The Band picks up a few new members along the way as their quest takes them to Istanbul and the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania to strike the death blow to this insidious enemy.

After being pulled off the street in Istanbul, Kenann must once again assume the guise of Inanna, the ancient goddess of Sumeria. But is it a guise? Sometimes she cannot tell. She moves from captive to mistress of the Transylvanian castle in a delicate balance to keep Danny Mac alive. Things go terribly wrong requiring Kenann to once again become a killer.

Don’t miss this Merry Band of Misfits’ next adventure as you are drawn into passionate love stories and the dark madness of pure evil. You will see faith challenged and the Lord doing what he does best. Settle back, get comfortable and enjoy the ride.
