Anthony Greer is a slightly off-kilter contradiction. Sometimes he is a leaf on the wind and rides the sky waves wherever they him. He’s a great conversationalist as long as you don’t talk during Game of Thrones or Big Brother, and incredibly nice when he wants to trade resources with you in Settlers of Catan (don’t do it! It’s a trap!!!).
He was raised amongst the olive-skinned natives of a Long Island town before transplanted to the rain-coated, black coffee loving capital of the Starbucks world. He learned early after being too school for cool that bartending supported his addiction to structuring sentences into stories of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery and Young Adult.
Anthony is unafraid to make big moves in the game of life, but sometimes needs to be thrown off the plane to figure out how to fly. Like a nine-lived cat he always land on his feet, and when those thick-padded paws hit the dirt he bears a smile on his face and recants a knee-slapper he heard on his journey, laughing half-way through the joke and usually forgetting the rest.
Mystery, Paranormal Mystery, Ghost Story
What do the dead have to fear? A medium combines his ethereal gifts with an ambitious reporter’s investigative zeal to uncover the truth obscured by a string of unlikely suicides.
Robert Baselton has grown accustomed to seeing the dead as they wander between worlds. However, when the spirits of a girl and an old woman become a regular presence in his everyday life, Robert has a suspicion that there’s a link between them and the utterances of murder that the Messenger of Death whispers in his ear. Every time the Messenger appears, another presence is soon to follow.
As Robert delves deeper into the lives of the deceased, Alexis Kearns, his girlfriend’s older sister, witnesses James Hawthorne plummet to his death in the middle of downtown Seattle. Armed with nothing but a smartphone and her knack for acting well under pressure, she is the first to cover this widely-publicized story.
Impressed with Alexis’ coverage and integrity, Hawthorne’s mother reveals to Alexis that her son could communicate with the dead and insists that he is just one of several mediums to have allegedly committed suicide in the past month. Alexis is intrigued with the pattern of unlikely deaths and follows up on Mrs. Hawthorne’s concern when she finds a connection between the medium suicides and Robert’s increasingly erratic behavior. Concerned for her sister, Alexis unknowingly aids Robert in trying to uncover what really happened to the mediums that have died, and discovers that both the dead and the living should be afraid of who—or what—is responsible.
The Raven of Dusk: Transcendence
Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Epic Fantasy, Dark Fantasy
Raiden, a young wildlife guide, watches his beloved and mysterious father murdered before his eyes without knowing why… or why his own child has been placed under a sentence of death.
Kostan, a dynastic hero, is slowly drawn into the realm of politics, while desperately trying to prevent his own son’s fall into moral depravity.
Vila, an ambitious politician, carries the unborn child of "mixed breed", which her own religion and people would kill on sight if she were to let her secret be known.
And Eliza, an ambitious and brazen young woman, always the outcast amongst her peers, finds herself encased in an enigmatic white glow.
Each of these four separate life threads are being slowly drawn together and shaped by an even greater mystery... because once, long ago, all life on Noreis suddenly became extinct… and no one, not one of the many races, cultures, or religions which currently share this planet, knows why.
Over time, the story of how and why it happened has devolved from history and myth, and from the dust of fading memories, life has sprung anew. A new world has erected with city-states that have skyscrapers that touch the heavens, lands covered in crystals with pavements like rock candy, and culture is rich and vibrant. Some people flourish in the footsteps of their ancestors while others drown in their shadows. Women rule among men, disputes are fickle, and a brighter history is being written.
But trouble is brewing… and the Ravens of Dusk are preparing to make their presence known.
Shifts in the world’s balance threaten the long-standing peace of its inhabitants. Political ties are shifting and breaking, unlikely alliances are forming, and betrayals are devastating. As dawn sheds light on the beginning of the end of days, only one thing is certain: whatever once caused a global extinction thousands of years threatens to repeat itself.
