Welcome to my “shelf”. On this page, I’ll post links to books from author friends of mine. Bookmark this page and check back often, I’ll be updating it regularly!
Genesis (First Colony Book 1)
Ken Lozito’s got a great series here, and in book 1 he sets up a very elaborate tale about a man named Connor who leads a special ops unit. Through a series of twists that come when you least expect, he finds himself aboard an interstellar ship headed to Earth’s first colony off world. Connor is forced to put the pieces back together ASAP as he adjusts to his ever evolving situation. Great story!
Star Wars Icons: Han Solo
Star Wars Icons: Han Solo covers the character’s entire journey, from his genesis in George Lucas’s first drafts of Star Wars to Harrison Ford’s iconic performances in the original three films and The Force Awakens, and the character’s rebirth in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The book also takes an in-depth look at Solo’s role in the Star Wars expanded universe, through novels, comics, video games, and more, and the indelible impression the character has made on pop culture.

Mob Bosses & Tax Losses (Time Travelling Taxman Book 5) ***New Release***
A decades old case. A charismatic gumshoe. A sinister don.
Alfred Favero, Senior Analyst with the IRS, shouldn’t have muddled the timeline. But curiosity got the better of him.
There was killing and a cat involved too*, but he’d rather not talk about that. Suffice it to say, a mafia prince is dead, and Alfred is on the run through time with a wrongly accused detective.
To unmask the men framing his new friend, he’ll tangle with New York City’s most sinister criminals. It’ll take all of his knowledge, and investigations across multiple timelines, to get to the bottom of it – before he finds himself sleeping with the fishes.
* No pets are harmed in this book. The cat definitely does not die.
The Pendomus Chronicles Book 2 by Carissa Andrews
A secret hidden in plain sight. A devastating attack. And a world hanging in the balance.
There are a lot of things I wish I’d known earlier—but three top my “wow, she was naïve” list.
First—there are others on Pendomus.
Second—a prophecy is in motion & I hold the key to the survival of literally everything.
Third—I’m being hunted by a madman who is desperately trying to wipe me from existence.
So yeah, no pressure.
If you like Maze Runner or The Hunger Games, then you’ll love Carissa Andrews’ Pendomus Chronicles.
The Last: A Zombie Apocalypse Thriller by Michael John Grist
Save the living. Slaughter the dead.
Horror comic book artist Amo spent the last year recovering from a near-lethal coma – taking his first steps back into the world, asking the beautiful barista in his local coffee shop for a date – then the world ends.
Zombies rampage through the streets of Manhattan. Planes spiral out of the sky. Amo is alone, maybe the last person alive in a world of the raging dead, but now he’s got a job to do.
Save Lara, the barista he risked his life to date, and hope that she can save him too.
But the zombies are not what he thought – and soon everything will change…
If you like I Am Legend, World War Z or The Walking Dead you’ll love this book, with gripping action, gut-churning moral dilemmas and a killer twist.
Cold Sanctuary by Anthony Strong
Anthony (Tony) is a great writer friend of mine and this book is part of his John Decker series. Decker is a disgraced lawman trying to set things right after a grisly encounter from the events of a previous book in the series. Don’t worry, you don’t have to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy this one! Of course, I’m sure ‘ol Tony won’t mind if you do 🙂
From a Certain Point of View (Star Wars Anthology) **NY Times Bestseller**
If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know I’m a huge Star Wars fan. Well it just so happens Andrea and I met Claudia Gray, and not only is she a fantastic and sweet lady, she wrote one of the stories in this collection. This anthology of 40 short stories covers parts of the Star Wars story that you didn’t see on the big screen. It’s a very interesting take on different perspectives of events in Star Wars that any fan of the franchise would enjoy.
Johnson Road by Clayton E. Spriggs
Clayton is a great friend of mine and one heck of a writer. He writes in the thriller/suspense genre, and his book Johnson Road is a very twisted story that takes place in a small southern town in the mid 50’s. Clayton takes time in his writing to build lots of turns and mystery in his stories, and when the truth is finally revealed, it’s stunning.
The Colossus Collection by Nicole Grotepas
Together in one set, books 1-4 of the Holly Drake Jobs. With bonus material, Six Shadows
Holly Drake is in prison for defending herself from a murderer. That’s the kind of corruption thriving in the city where evidence is destroyed and the innocent go to jail.
But everything’s about to change.
Someone exonerates Holly and she walks free. She has no idea who. Or why. But they have a job for her: steal back the Eye of the Colossus, a priceless jewel. It’s about to be moved off-planet, and when that happens, the trail will go cold.
Out of prison with no other work on the horizon, the job is a gift. If only she knew how to pull off a heist. The clock is ticking. If she can assemble a team and pretend like she knows how to do this, maybe she can fake it long enough to do a job better suited for a master-thief. Why Holly? Who’s pulling her strings? And just how far across the moon system will she have to go to finish the job?
