Yes! An update!

All new covers, a few more books.

For discussions, and occasional excepts of work-in-progress:

Outcasts and Gods

Exiles and Gods

The Black Goats


Spy Wars

Comet Fall

A Taste of Wine

Dark Lady

Growing Up Magic


I’m also starting a new series, sort of Cyberpunk.

I’m using the pen name Zoey Ivers to brand the books “Kid Safe.” They aren’t kids books, but there won’t be any sex, even behind closed doors.

Doors into the Dimensions:

The Barton Street Gym



I’m experimenting with CreateSpace, and actual print books. Coming soon to a bookstore near you.

Wine of the Gods Series–Outcasts and Gods

1 Outcasts and Gods JPEG
I’ve dived into epublishing, armed with nothing but my complete ignorance confidence in myself. On the job training proceeds.


This is the first book of a series, well, technically, the prequel, but who’s counting? Currently available in the Kindle store.


Cover blurb, or advert:


Genetic engineering.

First they cured the genetic diseases.

Then they selected for the best natural traits.

Then they made completely artificial genes.

As the test children reached puberty, abilities that had always been lost in the random background noise were suddenly obvious.



At first their creators sought to strengthen these traits.

Then they began to fear them.

They called them gods, and made them slaves.


Wolfgang Oldham was sixteen when the company laid claim to him.

He escaped, and stayed free for three years.

When he was arrested, identified and returned to the company, they trained him to be useful.

They didn’t realize that they were training him to be dangerous.


Book four of the "Wine of the Gods" seriesYep, you guessed it. The fourth book. It’s getting a final polish before its debue on Kindle.

Next step, figure out Nook.

Cover blub:

Genetically engineering lifted psychic powers above the random background of coincidence. Backlash and prejudice against ‘magic’ and ‘demons’ resulted in the exile of the genetically engineered to dangerous worlds, not-quite-parallel earths they weren’t expected to survive.

Thirteen hundred years of turbulent Earth history later they’ve been forgotten.

And rediscovered.

The Black Goats

Book Three of the "Wine of the Gods" seriesAnd just to prove I have no taste of sense of style, here’s the cover of the third book in the series.


I’m still working on the second one.

Cover blurb:

They were the last magic users in the world.

Seventeen witches and eight badly inbred mages. Nine wizards, eight of them transformed into large black goats.

Perhaps the gods should not have drunk so much while considering how to remedy the situation.
