In the Breakers series, humanity faces not one apocalypse, but two: first a lethal pandemic, then a war against those who made the virus. This collection includes the first three books and is over 1000 pages (350,000 words) of post-apocalyptic survival.
BREAKERS (Book 1)
In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter. A plague tears across the world, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. Civilization comes to an abrupt stop.
Just as the survivors begin to adapt to the aftermath, Walt learns the virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job–and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.
MELT DOWN (Book 2)
In upstate Idaho, Ness Hook is run out of his mom's house by his bullying brother Shawn. In Redding, California, Tristan Carter is graduating college, but with no job and no prospects, she'll have to move back in with her parents.
Then the world ends: first with a virus, then with an alien invasion.
Ness and Shawn take to the mountains to fight a guerrilla against the attackers. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back–but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world.
KNIFEPOINT (Book 3)
Raina was just a girl when the plague came. She survived. Her parents didn't. Neither did the world. As civilization fell, she took to the ruins of Los Angeles, eating whatever she could catch.
After two years alone, she's found and adopted by a fisherman and his wife. Their makeshift family lives a quiet life–until a man named Karslaw sails in from Catalina Island with an army of conquerors. Driven by visions of empire, he executes Raina's new father as a traitor and takes her mother captive.
But Karslaw's people aren't the only ones vying for control of the ruined land. As violence wracks the city, Raina joins a rebellion against Karslaw's rule. She will stop at nothing to free her mother–and to have her revenge.
Vydor is riding a wave of success, but now his ship, the Dragon Claw, is being sent to investigate a mysterious event deep within the Empire’s space. A secret research colony has fallen silent and the forces sent to investigate were never heard from again.
A new enemy has come to the Empire bringing with it dark powers that were abandoned long before the Empire was born. Powers that were thought to be legends and myths.
It’s up to Vydor to keep this force at bay and protect the Empire, but it may come at the cost of his faith and shake the foundations of the Empire itself.

The fate of the world as we know it rests in the hands of an unwitting teenage witch and her overweight cat.
In present-day Portland, the Norse gods are alive and well, and hiding in plain sight: Odin is a high school principal, blustering Thor is about to lose his job as a photocopier repairman, and the Norns are operating a psychic hotline—and they and their kin are on the hunt for the newly reincarnated World Tree as they try to prevent Ragnarok.
At the same time, sixteen-year-old Sally Dahl is casting rune spells to bring about a better, happier planet, but she instead triggers the return of the legendary Berserker warriors—and their bottomless junk food cravings. When Sally finds herself the victim of her own magick, she inadvertently teams up with a power-grabbing minor deity, Managarm, who wants to capture the Tree for himself and assert his dominion over all.
Can Odin rely on a new generation of Vikings—including a marching band and a biker gang—for help? Can Sally fix her magickal mistakes in time to thwart Managarm’s plan—before the Berserkers eat Voodoo Doughnuts out of business?

We both leaned against the old house, peeling paint digging into my arms as I a glanced into the window.
She was there!
Raising her gun toward the Sheriff, she took careful aim as a maniacal sneer formed on her lips.
“You disgust me,” she snarled with unbounded rage. Throwing her head back suddenly, she let loose a loud, evil laugh, straight from the bowels of hell.
“At least this way, I get to personally witness your last breath,” she grinned as she cocked her gun. “Quite the consolation prize, I assure you.”
I glanced over at Frank, who nodded as he tensed himself to break through the door. Cocking my own weapon, I knew that this was the moment…capture or kill, this all ended now.
“I damn you to Hell Sheriff,” she shouted next, “You should feel right at home there.”
Frank burst through the door with me close behind…I had no way of knowing that this would be the moment that changed my life…forever!

Their dangerous potential has caught the attention of rebel factions as well as the ruling Commonwealth. When contact with her kind turns pilots into casualties, the Governors fear an imminent invasion engineered by their rebel enemies.

Things get personal when his alien visitor begins to transform his mind and his life, turning the rescue mission into a fight for survival for all of them.

But where does one run when all Earth and most settled planets are under the aegis of one government? Answer: The Freehold of Grainne. There, one may seek asylum and build a new life in a society that doesn’t track its residents every move, which is just what Pacelli has done. But now things are about to go royally to hell. Because Earth’s government has found out where she is, and they want her back. Or dead.
