A Novel

The Prophecy declared this was coming. Instead of the oceans rising, they receded. Droughts expanded. Famine ensued. Billions of lives perished over the course of 80 years. By 2121, Ratford Jones believes he’s the last man on Earth. He did what was necessary to survive. Or so he struggles to convince himself.

Running from one horrific memory he can’t face, his path is set on a collision course with a world he couldn’t imagine existed a few scorching months earlier. He must soon confront his past, face who he is, and decide the fate of the final strands of humanity.

A Novel

Tropical Storm Phyllis pounds the Gulf Coast as six college friends arrive at a beach house. Oblivious to the recent algae bloom and lack of sea life, they swim out to explore a sandbar. They don’t notice the sharks move in.

As the sun sets, the tide rises, and hope fades. As the shiver of sharks test the depth, these friends realize their greatest enemy isn’t always in the water; sometimes it’s in the mirror.

The Game

Faking an alien landing takes planning, guts, and a disdain for authority, especially if that ‘authority’ happens to be a top secret military establishment purported to harbor an actual alien crash-landing.

Arresting Aidan

The debut Jonathan Bryce novella. This planned 26-story series follows the rise of a star F.B.I. agent, thrown into the lion’s den when he must choose between his dream career and a friend he hasn’t seen in years.


An annoyingly small city, an ex-girlfriend, and a secret she’s reluctant to reveal. What could go wrong? When Jack discovers a mystery in the dead of winter, he has no idea just how cold things can get.

The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

– Mark Twain

A Novel

Trip was an outcast, set aside, forgotten. He didn’t measure up to the new standards of society. He was flawed. Broken. Down.

His sister Layla … now she was perfect. She was chosen. In a post-apocalyptic world, easy choices don’t come so easy.

As Trip watches Layla move to the ‘good life,’ they both understand their fates will cross again … and it’s all part of the plan.

What Just Happened?

I suppose that starting my writing blog off with a very personal story would be the best way to go. After all, it’s not every day that something like this happens.

Let’s Get This (Party) Started

Let’s Get This (Party) Started

Okay, I figure this is as good a time as any to get this blog off the ground. A new novel.
I currently have three new novels just underway and one novella that I’m about to kickstart into gear.

Alright, Already …

Alright, Already …

Trying to balance Regular Life and Writing Life and the one thing I’ve come to accept of it so far is that the two are so interconnected they’re inseparable. Teetering on opposite ends of the same seesaw.
