An evocative, sweeping symphony of love, revenge, and desperation in cacophonous times.

[Scambait is] laugh out loud funny. My highest recommendation.

– Robb Grindstaff, award-winning author


To say so much with so few words [in And Ampersand] is a gift.

– Gregory Lee Renz, Author of Beneath the Flames


[Imminent Dawn is] an incisive techno-thriller that gets more tense with every page.
