The first book in the Bride Quest Trilogy.

A terrifying tale of invasion!

A telepathic, telekinetic alien species invades Earth on a Bride Quest that, if successful, will mean the end of humankind. Hillary Bopal, chosen by the Gron’dalin king to be his mate, has resisted his mind controlling influence more effectively than any female in the history of these aliens. In the process she angers him so much that he breaks with tradition and travels alone across the universe to physically confine her.

But Hillary isn’t the only human female at risk. An armada with tens of thousands of their elite is on the way; behind them ships bearing millions of Nationals.

Is there a hope of saving Earth's inhabitants?

One man, one lone doctor treating Hillary for injuries sustained while fleeing this creature, stands between total annihilation and the continuation of our species.

The Omni Gate 

Coming in 2012; a wonderful story of bravery and determination in the face of fearful odds. 

Greed and the lust for power have reduced the Tainians, a once powerful entrepreneurial race turned careless, military oppressor, to imprison debtors in a mining colony on Apa Gra. There, in unbearable heat, the men from many planets toil for crystals necessary in the functioning of the Calla machines which suspend time while travelling long distances through space.

Radda Gan, a Higilian, imprisoned for his father's debt, escapes the harsh reality of prison life at night through dreaming about a candy shop frequented by an exotic and mysterious woman - Regina.

What Radda doesn’t yet know is that Regina isn’t just a figure in a dream; that the dream isn’t a dream at all and that reality is about to change . . . forever.
