MKA Has New Book Covers

I send a special "Thank You" to the staff at Mythic Dragon Publishing for my new book covers. 
They're AWESOME!



Morgan Koda has landed in a world full of magic. Now she has to survive it.

A simple English class assignment turns twelve-year-old Morgan world upside down, and she never dreamed delivering a Christmas letter to her local Mall’s Santa Claus would be her ticket to Edenwiess School of Magic. In this enchanted place, she walks through rainbows, makes friends with elves and talking animals, and experiences magic around every corner. Yet, she finds things are not as serene as they seem. A classmate wants her dead. An evil sorcerer, The Dark Emir,  hunts the one with the power to control the Mask of Noesis, an ancient artifact that can seize or manipulate a wizard's magic.

Morgan and the Emir are in a race against time for the relic. But, in order for her to fulfill her destiny with the golden mask, she has to survive the encounters with an eccentric classmate and the Dark Emir.

Nevertheless, Morgan Koda is anything but helpless.




 Alliances can be deadly, whereas, friendships have a price.

Candy-cane-striped trees, ogres, and chameleon-dragons might seem like an adventure, but to Morgan Koda, it’s all about friendship.

Thirteen year old Morgan has unintentionally altered her time-line and that of her world and she will do anything to preserve it.
As her second school year starts, she must face her adversary, The Dark Emir, once again. He has kidnapped one of her best friends and holds him hostage in exchange for The Mask of Noesis and the restoration of their time-line.
But by resetting the time-line Morgan risks losing the one thing she has yearned for her whole life. On the other hand, surrendering the golden mask will give The Dark Emir the key to controlling her and their world.

Morgan Koda has no intention of doing his bidding, and there’s a little more than magic up her sleeve...




Sometimes, things are not as they seem. Sometimes, they're even worse.

Fourteen year old Morgan Koda may hold the Four Elements of Earth in the palm of her hand. But a little thunder storm might be her undoing.

The island of Edenwiess is under attack from what seems to be a simple storm. However, lighting is striking repeatedly in the same location over the vast volcano. Those who are observing realize that this is no typical storm. Something evil is at work.

In order to save the magical world she loves, Morgan and her friends, Tristan, Rex, and Raine return to the Island after their school has been evacuated. Not only will she place her life in peril, but those of her friends as well.

Morgan Koda will go beyond the limits of her magic to discover the source responsible for the attack. The result will leave her feeling betrayed.




A trip to the Mall of America turns terrifying after Morgan Koda is shot trying to save a stranger. She awakens in the hospital with no memory of who or what she is. 

She's in a race to recover her memory before the fiend captures her and the girl she believes to be her sister.
As the hunters close in, strange events start happening around her, then to add to the mix, a familiar smiling ball of fire keeps showing up telling her and Indy to run.

But what terrifies Morgan the most - this all seem so familiar.

Looking for a great book to read?


They hunt a monster to correct a horrific injustice

On the eve of the Nazi invasion of Poland, three men, two Canadians and a German, boldly step on a train filled with Wehrmacht military. They cross the Greater Reich to wreak revenge on a former Wehrmacht officer.

Billy LaChance and Lum Del Luca, along with German, Josef Weiss, do the impossible and cross the Pyrenees Mountains with three sacks of rare gold coins, stolen from looters. They evade Spanish and French patrols, aware that capture means a firing squad or a concentration camp.

In Switzerland they learn that their target, Rolf von Huber, now serves in the SS in Cottbus Germany. Rolf’s busy putting the finishing touches on the extermination of all undesirables once the war begins.

His former rivals have a different plan for him: to right an unforgivable wrong.


I found Brutal from the Fray to be well researched, and interlaced with real historical figures, and tells of the barbarity, valor and great heartbreak of an unparalleled war many call the last great moral crusade. It details battles fought with both antiquated arms and state-of-the-art weaponary. The story overlaps with the pleasure of an historical novel, and dramatic confrontation as three freedom fighters defy great odds and show their passion and grit in the quest to right an unforgivable wrong. I highly recommend it.

Passing of a great friend, Patrick W. Fine


My great friend Patrick W. Fine has passed. But I will remember him lovingly whenever I read the first three books of my series. He was kind enough to help me out of all the sticky spots I seemed to have written myself in.




I hope you hear me as I say, "I already miss you my friend."
