Composed from true life events and 10 years of memoirs, This Shadow Follows Me, is a riveting fiction novel of Alec Andrews and the friends and family that faltered around him.
The story begins at the death bed of Andrew's ex boyfriend Troy who was dying of AIDS complications. Alec tries to tell his life story in hopes that he can make up for all that he could not tell Troy when he was alive. Alec’s life story lurks with the self destruction of a family that drove him to crucify himself, in hopes they would be correct with their religious beliefs.

Will Alec and the other characters have the strength to create a life worth living or destroy themselves in the process? This novel is a history of coming out of the closet, being gay and proud, and learning to respect those that are different.

Scrolls of Zndaria is a new seven-book juvenile fantasy series that introduces young readers to five unlikely heroes in the magical world of Zndaria. The first five books each bring readers into the life of one of our heroes.
Nathanial “Nate” McGray, the hero in the first novel, The Golden Wizard, dreams of being the first peasant in the world of Zndaria to become a wizard. The children of the local nobility bully and ridicule him to remind him that only nobility are selected to study magic. Even Nate’s parents discourage him, insisting it’s a foolish dream. After proving to the kingdom’s wizard that he is worthy of studying magic, Nate must prove to himself that he can overcome challenges and obstacles to accomplish his dream.
The first five books are interwoven. Scenes from the The Golden Wizard will be re-written in books two through five from the point-of-view of the other heroes, giving readers a different perspective or deeper information on events that occurred in The Golden Wizard. [close]
