Savannah Marshall is a gifted flutist and daughter of musical royalty when she enrolls in the elite New England Conservatory of Music. Brilliant, eclectic and passionate, she lives music, but struggles with her plans for the future.
Gregory Fitzgerald is one of the most renowned cellists of his generation. A member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and professor at the Conservatory, he is laser focused on his career to the exclusion of friends, family and especially romance.
When Gregory and Savannah’s paths cross in the classroom, it threatens to challenge more than their wildly differing beliefs on music. Friendships, ethics, and careers are put on the line as Gregory and Savannah play a symphony of passion and heartbreak.
In the final movement, Gregory and Savannah are handed their greatest challenge, as the loss of absolutely everything they’ve held as truths hangs in the balance.
From an author described as “one of America’s criminally neglected authors,” Republic is a surprise bestselling dystopian novel (more than two years on the Amazon Alternate History bestseller list) described by readers as “breath-taking,” “riveting,” and “haunting.”
Ken Murphy is a 45 year-old National Guard Colonel and senior manager at a computer chip manufacturer in quiet Highview, West Virginia. In this future history featuring frightening parallels to our present, the local economy is thrown into a tailspin when the plant is suddenly shut down, even as the nation is thrown into turmoil by a deadly domestic terrorist attack.
Karen Greenfield, a young captain in Murphy’s National Guard battalion, faces a devastating choice: how does she serve the Constitution she swore to protect when the danger comes from the federal government itself? After witnessing the senseless death of a co-worker, she begins to question the foundations of everything she has ever believed.
Murphy must fight for healthcare for his terminally ill son. As he tries to save his son’s life, and Greenfield struggles to serve the ideals she believes in, they are dragged into a deeper conflict between the forces that are ripping our nation apart.
Three months after the end of the West Virginia civil war, Valerie Murphy faces her worst fears as the violence escalates. Former Congressman Al Clark, now Governor of the bankrupt state, must quell an insurgency even as he struggles to put the state back together.
In a small town south of Charleston, West Virginia, Corporal Jim Turville meets a young ballet dancer who dreams of moving beyond her small coal mining town. As the young couple grows closer, their love and their lives will be at risk as insurgents move to disrupt the town with shocking violence.

When the people he depended on the most turn their back on him, Chet travels across the country in search of meaning behind the horrors of his war.
