Once Upon Another World

Free - 822 pages

'Truth is stranger than fiction', these words are an axiom on which a great many things may pivot. For Raven Sinclair these words have long since become a credo, a principle philosophy by which he has lived much of his life. As a creator of fiction, it might seem to some that these words would fade when faced with the realities he creates in his novels. But the Truth of his own reality is in fact stranger than the fiction he creates. Gifted with more than five senses, an outcast by choice, and someone compelled by a driving force he does not understand, Raven's truth is about to become a great deal more like the fiction he has created.

A single decision leads to events he could never have predicted and shoves him into motion down a path that he has unknowingly been following even before he was born. And it leads him to the last thing he could have expected, the long awaited love of his life. He finds her in the very last place he might have thought to look, as part of a government conspiracy to capture and control people just like him. All too soon he must confront a government that wants nothing more than to make him a toy soldier, a past he knew nothing about, a reality far bigger than he could ever imagine, and forces that will alter him and the way he looks at the world around him forever.

And even though for a time his changed life becomes quiet once more the forces of destiny are still guiding him along a path that leads right into the darkness. An ancient evil has been stirred up from the forgotten worlds and cosmic dust to strike at the very heart of his world, and it is not in his destined path to run from it.

There’s always been something a bit off about Perry Palomino. Though she’s been dealing with a quarter-life crisis and post-college syndrome like any other twentysomething, she’s still not what you would call “ordinary.” For one thing, there’s her past which she likes to pretend never happened, and then there’s the fact that she sees ghosts. Luckily for her, that all comes in handy when she stumbles across Dex Foray, an eccentric producer for an upcoming webcast on ghost hunters. Even though the show’s budget is non-existent and Dex himself is a maddening enigma, Perry is instantly drawn into a world that both threatens her life and seduces her with a sense of importance. Her uncle’s haunted lighthouse provides the perfect catalyst and backdrop for a horrific mystery that unravels the threads of Perry’s fragile sanity and causes her to fall for a man, who, like the most dangerous of ghosts, may not be all that he seems.

Children of God

How many ways are there to die as you hunt out here in the icy Minnesota winter? Too many: frost-bite, wild animals, disease, starvation. More if you count the dead things hunting you in turn. The worst has to be the same people you'd hoped you could count as allies here at the end of the world. Hate, though, as blinding as the snow, has a way of making even the end of the world seem like just another day at work in years past, riding a lawn-mower and enjoying the sunshine. There and then, at least, God never hated you for being gay...

A Crimson Set of Silver

Free - 532 pages

Introducing; Jake Snow, a conveyor expert, pleasure pilot, and sometime musician, living on his airstrip-ranch in remote, Lake County, Florida. Jake is weary and cynical of the political greed associated with the corporate world, choosing to avoid the daily grind by only engaging in project consulting when certain customers seek his services. His love for flying overrides anything in his life including personal relationships, though he often finds the time to circle his musical friends together to jam at a local venue. Johnny Miller, a saxophone player is a long time associate and also his best friend.

During a morning flight one day, Jake discovers a pilot friend dead at the controls of his plane. He had been shot down, but lived long enough to land the plane in a swamp. Jake finds clues on the downed plane, including a vial of liquid which appears to be narcotic. The clues lead him to investigate the crime, uncovering another murder on the way.
Jake has a knack for figuring out how things work, and not just mechanical things. He has natural, special insight into the motivations of the mind, and uses this ability to unravel the mystery of his friend’s death. During a late night excursion back to the downed plane, Jake and another friend Danny, are confronted by the county Sheriff, who is seriously disturbed by their presence inside his caution taped, crime scene. Encounters with this Sheriff recur throughout the adventure, in good ways and bad, and Jake must find ways to gain his trust, so that information can be traded between them.
Jake and Johnny disguise themselves as prominent law enforcement officials to obtain the chemical compound of the narcotic. It’s a new designer drug with interesting characteristics and has a very high street value. Its manufacture is traced to Mexico, though it may have deeper South American origins.

A sometime acquaintance and lover from Jake’s past reenters and Jake finds it convenient to have her accompany him on the trips to locate those involved. They venture into the world of swingers, travel on a cruise to Mexico and finds themselves in the remote fields of the Bahamas, before the story culminates at a cowboy dude ranch outside of Lakes Wales, Florida.

Jake has numerous opinions about the workings of the world and how things have changed in his lifetime. He is a man of talent on multiple levels, who has not yet dropped out of society, but may be about to at the conclusion of this story. He is full of the wit it takes to cause the reader to laugh, or at least smile widely. Discover a man who has found his way in the world after the devastating loss of his mother and the disappearance of a father who never knew he had a son.

A Crimson Set of Silver takes you on a wild, non-stop, action adventure, using new technologies and old style common sense. Exploring the ways criminal minds use to toil their wares. The author paints a descriptive picture in every scene along the way.

In a desperate union with an international force of intelligence mavericks, with megabillions and global supremacy at stake, Vance has only a few days to bring down a conspiracy that threatens to ignite nuclear Armageddon.

Publisher’s Weekly

“Hoover’s adept handling of convincing detail enhances this entertaining thriller as his characters deal and double-deal their way through settings ranging from the Acropolis to the inside of a spacecraft. Michael Vance, formerly of the CIA, is on his way to an archeological dig when some old friends show up. First comes KGB agent Alex Novosty, caught laundering money that the KGB claims was embezzled – and he wants Michael to take charge of the hot funds. Then National Security Agency cryptographer Eva Borodin (who is Michael’s ex-lover) appears with an undecipherable but dangerous computer file: the co-worker who gave her the file has since vanished. Heavies from a Japanese crime syndicate attack Michael and Eva, who are rescued by Alex, but it looks like Alex and the syndicate aren’t complete strangers. Moreover, the mysterious Daedalus Corporation seems to be a link between Alex’s money and Eva’s file. As Michael is drawn into this deadly web, he realizes there is a secret agreement between the Russians and the Japanese – and it has nothing to do with tea-brewing customs.
