Wulfwaru and the Hag Child

Wulfwaru and the Hag Child is the second of a fantasy trilogy set on the Island of the Mighty – an alternative Britain where the Roman invasion failed, and Old Gods still influence events.

It all begins with an untimely death, as things often do in an uncertain world of Gods, monsters and men. Dark forces seek to use the Hag Child’s power to bring about a new age of fire and blood. The fate of the Island of the Mighty hangs in the balance once again, and all the omens are bad.

Sister Wulfwaru of the House of the One Goddess at Escafeld soon finds herself involved in a dangerous game, guided by a Silver Branch anruth who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gwythyr Cenedr swore a sacred oath to protect her, but can he protect himself?

Covert Dreams

Life is good for B.J. He has a great job and a loving wife. But all of a sudden he begins experiencing a series of lifelike nightmares, where he knows intimate details of Munich, a city in which he has never been. He can speak German in his dream, a language he does not know. Everybody thinks he is losing it. Is he going crazy? To save himself, he knows that he has but one option: he must go to Munich to uncover the truth behind his dreams.

Stan Halsey, a professor in Saudi Arabia, sends for his wife to join him, but she suddenly disappears soon after her arrival, along with every trace of her very existence. There is absolutely nothing, not one single detail in any records anywhere, to prove that she is indeed a living person and that her spouse is not crazy for thinking so. Both the American government officials and the Saudi Arabian authorities insist that she does not exist. Stan Halsey, all alone in his quest, must act fast before he is forced out of the country.

What is real, and what is not? Who is really who, and why? The mounting suspense moves from Munich, to London, to Rome, and to the burning sands of Saudi Arabia with a horrifying swiftness.



I have resided in and have visited many places in the world, all of which have contributed in some way to my own published writing. I have literally traveled throughout the world, on numerous occasions. I have lived in Finland, Germany,Thailand, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Saudi Arabia, where COVERT DREAMS is set.I gained the wanderlust to see the world, to experience other cultures, at an early age,and this desire has never left me. If anything, it has only gained in intensity as I have aged. I try to travel internationally at least once a year. In the interim, I spend lots of time traveling around both my home state of California and other nearby states.I spent my early years in the small town of Lone Pine, California, the home of almost every western movie, in addition to a wide variety of other genres, made in the30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. In fact, Hollywood still films parts of big-time movies there today. My dad, the town’s lifeguard at the time, personally knew John Wayne, Lloyd Bridges, and Lee Marvin, all of whom came to the town’s pool, the Memorial Plunge, at times to cool off after a hectic day of working in the sun. I was even an extra in a movie filmed there in 1957, MONOLITH MONSTERS, a B-cult favorite even today. I was ten years old at the time. Even though I resided in a small town hours from the big city, I was exposed to the excitement of action and heroes at a formative age, and, thus, my interest in writing novels of suspense such as COVERT DREAMS was born. As a recent retiree from a forty-year career as a professor of writing, I now live in Southern California wine country with my wife, Kitty, and our two other cats.
