  • MaCoven

    Maddie has had enough of seeing good people stomped underfoot by the uncaring, the self-centered, the corrupt, and the flat-out evil. Why does it feel like so many bad people get away with their crimes without ever paying any consequences? In her search for answers about whether the concept of karma really exists and how the religious ideas of heaven, hell, and purgatory all work together, she meets a kindred spirit in Machelle. Together they stumble upon a world of witchcraft specifically designed to punish those who sin against the innocent.


    This group, known as MaCoven, recruits the girls and trains them to use their innate sense of right and wrong to dispense a powerful dose of poetic justice. Dan, an accidental witness to MaCoven’s powers, gets the opportunity to explore purgatory and watch as the coven members apply their particular brand of an eye-for-an-eye. But can karma be changed? Can evildoers ever see the error of their ways and become good people? MaCoven takes the discussion of crime and punishment, action and consequence, and retributive justice to a different realm.

  • There and Back Again: Stories from a Combat Navy Corpsman

    There and Back Again highlights the ups and downs of a wounded warrior in a post-war, post-injury world. This is the story of how one Navy corpsman persevered after losing his friends and body parts in Ramadi, Iraq. This is not a war story. It begins as Doc Jacobs lies in a hospital bed after a bomb blasts his whole life into a new reality.

    Focusing on the importance of self-discipline and perseverance, There and Back Again: Stories from a Combat Navy Corpsman reveals Doc’s path to finding himself and learning to enjoy life again. After struggling through bureaucratic injustice and frustration, he becomes determined to reach those living with a disability, their family members, and their loved ones, to prove that these wounded warriors are enough, and to inspire them to follow their dreams and find their purpose.
