The Flipside: Volume One

The Flipside: Volume OneWelcome to the world of modern mind control, where children are tortured to evoke latent abilities beyond the average population and trained to become undetectable super spies—secret servants of an international elite known only as The Order. Caught up in a massive criminal enterprise intent on world rule, it takes a special courage to resist the scariest and most powerful people on earth.

Journey into the flipside of polite society in these seven thrilling short stories, snapshots into the courageous lives of those who dare to fight for freedom. Included are: Winning The Master’s Game, Before And After The Impossible, Endurance, Eagle Eyes, No Time For Knowing, The Hunger Solution, and The Monster Experiment.

Our Story Begins...


I loved writing the short stories in this volume. You will recognize familiar characters from The Oniah Trilogy, as well as become introduced to new characters altogether. I am very excited to present this collection.

I hope the perseverance of the human spirit shines through the dark adversity in these pages, and the love with which we are all capable is shown to be a powerfully mysterious and creative force which can help guide us through, and safely beyond, the most fearsome challenges any human being can face. For the true gift of adversity is often found in the healing of it. And those gifts can be magnificent.

There exists such wondrous healing for us all, if only we shall choose it.
