Imagine being born in the 20th century, yet knowing nothing of electricity, or a plane, an automobile, or any technology. You haven't even seen a building taller than two stories. And then one day you are confronted with the modern world. Worse yet, you were raised in chaos, without the proper guidance a child needs. What would you make of your existence in the complex modern world? Could you thrive? Could you even survive?

An Old Black Marble is a psychological thriller about Cipiran Indre, a man born in Eastern Europe, in the middle of WWII. His life is destined, by the fate of his birth, to be one of pain in a world with few options. Then one day, while still a young boy, he finds a little black rock with a peculiar shine. It's nothing, but he likes it, it's the size of the hole in his heart, so he keeps it. Yet in no time, as one disaster flows into another, his little shiny rock becomes something colder, something darker. It becomes his nemesis, turning his whole world inside out, setting him on a quest that most of us would not wish on our worst enemy, yet in the end something truly magical does happen. Everything was in fact as it seemed, but nothing is the same. Perspective changes everything. Discover the mystery of that Old Black Marble.

From the beginning of time everyone has been searching yet no one finding, that age old quest for peace and freedom from pain. Maybe it can't be found. Or can it? Cyprian searched a lifetime, seemingly in vain, yet at the nexus of his existence he finally found it, all wrapped up in a long forgotten old black marble. But you don't need a lifetime. You just need to read An Old Black Marble and enjoy the thrill ride of your own discovery.

The Biker is NOW available!

Buy it NOW from Amazon
or from Smashwords


Imagine The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, sprinkle in some Mad Max, and add a dash of The Terminator; so what’cha cooking? THE BIKER! Oh, and I almost forgot. The garnish. Yes. The Biker is garnished. Unlike the three fore mentioned films the Biker delivers a little more. It has that extra touch that makes the difference between a good dish and a gourmet delight. It is not only an exciting calorie filled action desert, but a well balanced feast capable of causing even the most hardened tough guy to shed, if not a full tear, at least a half.

Are you hungry yet? So what am I talking about here, food, film, or an engrossing novel? It is neither food or film, nor film in food, but it is definitely food for thought. The Biker is a fast paced thriller that reads more like a movie in your mind than a book in your hands.

The action in this tale is about a mysterious Biker who suddenly springs forth from the desert dust, like a lost horseman from some other apocalyptic time, unleashing a murderous rampage on the outskirts of Las Vegas. Bruce, a decorated detective, and his protégé John, arrive on the scene and come face to face with the horrific devastation in the wake of this single man. Both detectives make it their mission to take this mad man down, but instead, embark on a journey of personal devastation blurring the lines between good and evil and right and wrong, taking them beyond their most terrifying nightmares. Who is this biker that seems more powerful than anything Bruce and John have ever confronted before? Find out... in The Biker!
