Betrayed by an insane Celtic queen as the Romans conquer Britain, the Earth Mother, in her British manifestation as Brigid, curses her betrayer and buries that curse at the site of her betrayal. She places her confidante, Hroc, and his kin the rooks as guardians of the curse. A shadow, she has stood by for two thousand years as bloody conflict, driven by men and their fierce male deities, has brought the world to the brink of destruction. Now, in Out of the Earth, the Mother reasserts herself. The bird guardians and local man Richard, beset by black-winged dreams and the unwitting inheritor of a destiny older than the hills, help the goddess return to claim her own.
Mary Out O' the Earth is the story of a forty-year-old widower named David Rigert who falls in love with a woman who is not at all who—or what—he believes her to be. She is, in fact, only half human. It is a story that hopefully captures the awful essence of what it must be like to wake up in dawn’s early light, turn to the spouse or lover lying next to you . . . and just catch, peripherally, a fleeting glance of a really wicked set of three-inch fangs receding back into your beloved’s gums. But Mary doesn’t know that she is half beast or that she has a half-alien mind and possesses enormous physical strength beneath her porcelain curves and red-hair beauty. She doesn’t know she is programmed to kill—and worse, to love —so that the imperatives of an alien world might be fulfilled. Or that her "other" self can quash her good half at will—down, down . . . until all that remains when she awakens are its malevolent ghostly footprints on her soul. She doesn’t know, but she will learn. And that is when the internal screams begin.

Char, Weddy, and Nuell are excited over their discovery on the strange planet Pleisto but also terrified, for the leader of their expedition, Professor Joher, has disappeared. Nuell and Weddy, Joher' children, are concerned for his safety, while Char, his research assistant, feels not only worried but responsible for all of them. He realizes that these prehistoric people may have carried off the professor—and may even have killed him. The three set out to find the professor, and their search leads them through a frightening world, where they must fight for their lives every day, against mastodons and jaguars as well as Pleisto's prehistoric inhabitants. They befriend a wounded hunter, a man who is like their own ancestors from millions of years earlier, and hope that he will lead them to the professor. As their journey progresses, Char is thrilled to have the chance to study prehistoric humans so closely, but he is disturbed by the violence of everyday life on Pleisto, by its uncomfortable similarity to life on Earth, and by his own feelings of competition and aggression. In an exciting climax, he learns about human courage, love, generosity, and cooperation.
‘OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT II’ is a sequel to my first book OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT I about the paranormal and the supernatural. I am sure that you have already noticed the vicious dragon on the front cover coming out of the Bottomless Pit along with locusts with scorpion tails and ferocious giants coming out of the Pit and attacking people taken from the Book of Revelation chapter 9. What will a transhuman technology do to our future? Is it wise to create hybrids? Could some of our tinkering in dark science end up coming to haunt mankind? I have personally met the ‘Men in Black’ many years ago and had many strange paranormal experiences in seeing UFO’s on five different occasions. Some of the experiences were not pleasant. What are the Ley-lines? Why does science pretend to know so much, when in fact they know very little because they deny so much! Why? Because they leave out the supernatural and the fact there are many other dimensions. - The Author
