Vampire EarthEdit

In the Vampire Earth series, aliens from a world known as Kur have taken over the world, destroying human society and enslaving the survivors. The novels follow the life of David Valentine, a young man who enlists with Southern Command, one of the few remnants of the old U.S. government scattered around, as he follows his heart even when it conflicts with orders.

Age of FireEdit

The Age of Fire series takes place in a world where dragons exist, but are becoming extinct. Civilization is under attack by barbarians from the north. Each of the first three novels in the series follows the life of one of three dragon siblings from fireless hatchlings to soaring dragons. The next three books follow the dragon siblings as they attempt to bring dragons back to the world.
