THE FALL (November 2021)
Father and daughter head into the majesty of the Rocky Mountains on a guided elk hunting adventure. When Michelle falls down a steep rockslide and disappears, Wiley’s search for her will prove the biggest adventure of all. When he witnesses the guides butchering the horse Michelle rode on before the fall, he knows something is very wrong. When the Sheriff also disappears, leaving behind nothing but a splotch of blood, he knows he’s on his own against those who have his daughter. Only, the evidence is mounting to suggest that those who have her may not be of this world.
THE CAPTURE (December 2021)
Michelle has woken to complete darkness, deep within the mountain. It smells of death and she is imprisoned inside a stone enclosure. She has not seen her assailants but can sense their violence. The screams she hears in adjacent cells stoke her fears…at least until she meets an unexpected ally. Her father, Wiley, continues to unravel the mystery of her disappearance and prays his emergency call on a satellite phone that was not supposed to exist has gone through. As Michelle escapes with her new futuristic friend and desperately fights to avoid capture, her dad and his military buddies must escape the rogue guides and find a way into the mountain to rescue Michelle from a place no man has gone before.
THE END GAME (January 2022)
Deep inside the mountains, both Rocky and her rescue team must fight for their lives, pit against a bloodthirsty and vicious adversary. The creatures aren’t about money or sex trafficking. Nor do they care about our social norms or decency. No, they require flesh and blood. They’ve been deprived for far too long. Michelle and Wiley’s hope for survival exists only beyond the stars, and they must each find a way to harness the technology which might again unite them and save their lives against a relentless and hungry adversary.
TETHERED TO DARKNESS (November 2021)
To escape her fanatically religious upbringing, Mia moves away to attend State University instead of the bible-college her family wanted. After orientation, Mia’s new friends invite her to the Para-Psychology Club, where she meets a charismatic professor, who introduces her to Astral Projection. Mia finds that her social anxiety makes her a natural at the maneuver. So, when her possessive boyfriend tracks her down, hellbent on returning her home, she escapes their possessive grip by slipping into the nether. However, while out of her body, something ancient and dark—and from her past—takes over. Forced to deal with not only the entity now using her body but also the religious extremists who have arrived to remove it, her only hope lies in the hands of her new friend Bruce and the enigmatic Professor Colista as they try to save her from a fate beyond hell.
