”the story of the family Golduke emerges from the Pale of Jewish Settlement and smothering persecution into a quest for freedom that spans the western world. From the teeming shores of Odessa's harbor, the dangerous journey stretches across the hinterlands of central Ukraine and into the deep woods of eastern Poland, evading Cossacks and pogroms, to the great Polish uprising born of the American Revolution, then becoming entangled in Britain's invasion of the Crimea against Czarist Russia.

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

Rebels & Lies
“The world created for Rebels & Lies is bleak and Orwellian, and doesn't feel out of the realm of possibility. “ “America has fallen. In its place: The United Society of Reason. After his mother is gunned down by USR Agents, prize fighter Ryan Kaspar, with the aid of his leftover trainer, joins a small rebel squad to exact revenge. John Paxton, ageing ex-Marine and leftover, leads the unit. He lives by the phrase "any means necessary" as his unit fights back in the hopes of inspiring the populace. They are hunted by the hot shot, up and coming Agent William Sullivan, who must battle his own inner demons in pursuit of justice. Filled with explosive action, political satire, and a hint of romance…”

“In a dying world no longer protected by an ozone layer, technology only exists to shelter small amounts of land. A new Cold War has arisen between the United States and new superpower, Japan's Great Union. Both race to develop protective technology for their citizens. Advancements are kept secret with each country hoping the other will fail and perish from the Earth. With an inevitable war on the horizon, a secret U. S. defense strategy is constructed calling for the launch of demolition forces against unsheltered American cities in ambush of invading troops….”

Overrun: Project Hideaway
“The Overrun story continues… A week following the declaration of war, the U.S. is close to defeat. A failed genocide attempt becomes known to the public and the President must answer to the world for his administration’s sins. An element still exists that could bring victory to the battered U.S. forces and ease the tensions of a quickly dividing country. On the ship Hideaway, technology to create an artificial ozone floats secretly hidden away in space untouched by the conflict being waged on Earth. The President launches a covert retrieval mission led by one of his top most-involved generals in the war. The J.G.U as well as separate mercenary forces race to do the same. The quest to obtain the prized technology becomes a final battle for victory in the war as well as an ultimate determination of survival of the planet. “
