T he world’s most powerful weapon is missing. So is her love. She’s going to find them both.
The Red Dragon Project is the ultimate weapon – five women who can transform themselves into mighty dragons. Not only can they soar over armies and use their fiery breath to devastate opposing forces, they can sneak behind enemy lines before metamorphosing and catch enemies unaware. Now Urland has a scale-tipping advantage over rival Phrygia, and even the means to fully stabilize allied nation Alfar’s shaky coalition government.
But on its first test mission, the Red Dragon Project is sabotaged. Three Dragons are killed, one is severely injured, and, worst, one goes missing. Only Wolf Dasher of Her Majesty’s Shadow Service knows who is really behind the attack: The Sons of Frey, a sinister terrorist organization dedicated to overthrowing Alfar’s government in the name of religious purity.
Wolf’s out of favor, though. A blown mission and his love affair with Alfar’s Captain of the Elite Guard May Honeyflower have irked the conservative faction of the coalition government and made him a liability to his own people. Currently serving a month-long suspension, he’s in no position to pursue his suspicions.
There’s only one solution: a dangerous, unofficial mission that carries Wolf across the border into neighboring Jifan, a nation of elves that hates humans like Wolf and seeks to conquer Alfar, uniting both countries under a strict fundamentalist theocracy. He’ll have to go alone, and, if anything goes wrong, no one will come to help.
May isn’t about to abandon her love, though. When Wolf disappears and is presumed dead, she resolves to go after him. Despite escalating sectarian violence and a bickering government refusing to come to any real solutions about daily acts of genocide and terrorism, she leaves her post to find him, recruiting imprisoned radicals to help her.
Now, Wolf and May find themselves in a race against time. Wolf must track down the missing Red Dragon before the Jifani-sponsored Sons of Frey unleash an apocalypse on Alfar. May must locate Wolf before the Sons of Frey discover him. If either of them fails, Alfar is doomed.
Red Dragon Five is the second book in the Wolf Dasher fantasy-thriller mash-up series. Combining James Bond-style action with elves, dragons, and magic, Wolf’s exciting adventures are both familiar and fresh.
A story of love and family, of betrayal and revenge, Red Dragon Five is a tale of two people fighting the odds to be together in a world determined to tear itself – and them – apart. Politics, religion, action, and romance come together to create a page-turner you won’t be able to put down. Read it as a standalone novel or as a companion to Wolf’s first adventure, State of Grace.

A NIMAIA – (Book 1). In the exotic country of ANIMAIA, Arno Steele and his school friends battle to save their animal-friendly world from those determined to destroy it. Jungles, beaches, wild animals, dinosaurs, and a very mysterious school with equally odd teachers come together in this young adult fantasy of 101,000 words. Mild sci-fi and paranormal elements, and some challenging themes. Suitable for 12 years to adult. Book one in a series. The story is complete and stands alone.
Arno Steele can talk to animals – and he’s very, very good – as his dad discovers when Arno is four. A young Arno is infatuated with the legend of the Truemore, an historical saviour who will one day return to protect his mystical and animal-friendly world, Animaia (anim-eye-a), from destruction. The modern country of Animaia arose from The Great Animal War of Liberation over 100 years ago and remains under constant threat of returning to the “old ways.” An elite few have inherited an ancient ability to talk to animals telepathically and they are called “Anima.” The Anima are trained as the protectors and administrators of human-animal integration in the society.
At thirteen, Arno is to be packed off to an elite school for young Anima. As events unfold, a reluctant Arno is perceived by some as the new saviour. Too bad: Arno would rather stay at home and hang out at the beach with his school friends, Leroy, Ashley and Charlotte, and his lifelong buddy Arkie the crow. What’s a boy with such exceptional ability and a possible foretold destiny to do?
But now dark forces are gathering once more, and they are organised like never before under the influence of a leader who believes it is his divine destiny to destroy the free-living Animaian state and create a realm of unbridled exploitation and destruction. Animaia fears “the return of the fleshers.”
Arno is under personal threat, and he and his friends find themselves at the centre of this threatening storm at their Anima school, wondering if they can unleash the mystical Truemore — the human form of the spirit of life itself — to help in the battle for their homeland, or if the Truemore is nothing more than legend and folk lore.
Ultimately, Arno must face the leader of the fleshers when a school camp in the jungle goes wrong and he finds himself fighting for his life.
ANIMAIA — not quite Harry Potter in the jungle.

LOW JINKS ON THE HIGH SEAS
In the years leading up to 1844, the entire globe, it seems, is experiencing religious fervor. Both the Bible and the Qu’ran have prophesied the coming of a Promised One who would cure the ailments of the world, and the time seems ripe.
During these years, two 12-year-old best friends in a desert village in Persia, dream of becoming great mullas and being first to recognize the Qa’im, the Promised One of Islam. But for Ali, son of the local mayor, it is not to be. One night his mother, an English girl enslaved after her missionary parents were killed, packs up Ali and after a breathtaking escape from the harem returns to London.
Suddenly wealthy, Ali becomes “Ollie” and is Christianized, educated, and brought into the family business, the London Times. Unfortunately, a series of heartbreaking tragedies befall the young man in England and America. As he bitterly rages against God and sets out to persecute those who carry out “His cruel purpose,” the best friend he left behind becomes a trailblazer of a new religion that threatens Islam and is savagely persecuted by a brutal Persian regime.
The startlingly different paths of these two best friends finally converge, with each on opposite sides of a climactic armed battle that may alter the lives and beliefs of millions.
