“I cannot thank you enough for giving me an opportunity to read your creation and becoming a part of this world!” – PS I LOVE THAT BOOK

“It was written very, very, well. The characters are deep and well laid out. The storyline is fascinating and told a magical and dangerous tale.” – BOUNDLESS BOOK REVIEWS

Rand O’Neal, an ambition-less newspaper reporter, is given a single task upon the death of his grandfather: Destroy a mysterious map. What should be a simple errand thrusts Rand into a journey where he discovers humanity’s biggest secret. The novel has been reviewed as, “Superb,” “Amazing” and “Extremely well written” and has drawn comparisons to Dan Brown and Robert Ludlum. The book is labelled an action adventure, but contains elements of science fiction, suspense and mystery.  It is also linked to a multi-media website which allows readers to engage with the experience in video, images and interactive appendices.

Boundless Book Reviews and PS I Love That Book have both given it 5 Stars. Other strong reviews can be found on independent book review sites, Goodreads and Amazon. You can buy it on amazon and at select bookstores. What’s even cooler, is the book has its own interactive web site! Just go to to get all the info, plus you can follow the book on my author Facebook page, instagram and a ton of cool youtube videos!

The sequel, “Alexandria Reborn,” is slated for an August 2017 publication date.

metro Atlanta area and here on  amazon
