Elisabeth (Bets) St. James is a reporter stuck in her in her small-market home town. She covers stories about neighbors fighting over a pet cat or the man whose entire wardrobe is scarlet and gray. In Columbus, Ohio, you are only a major star if you are covering “The Ohio State Buckeyes."
Her days covering fluff pieces ends after she is the first on the scene of a ritualistic killing. Following the third murder, the glare of the national media shines on her and her dream of moving to New York, seemed to be finally within reach.
She soon develops an uneasy relationship with a private detective; hired by one of the victim's parents. She isn’t sure which emotion he stirs in her more; fear or lust.
The dream of network stardom, quickly becomes a nightmare. During their investigation, they discover an ancient sect that is devoted to a shadowy leader. Calling themselves, The Sons of Apollyon and they are tied to every major event in mankind’s history. More over, she learns about a weapon, forged thousands of year before Christ.
Before the murders began, her only worry was if she would ever escape her provincial life. Now, Bets finds herself holding the sword of God in her hands, along with the fate of mankind.
S.O.A. is the first part of a trilogy and part two is coming soon!
I am just an average guy with an above average family. Somehow, I managed to stay married to a wonderful woman these past 24 years. Betsy and I have two amazing daughters who helped me write this book. It was Betsy who encouraged me to finish the story, that I had started 20 years ago on a simple yellow note pad. My dad once described me as a jack of all trades, and master of none. I have spent the last 30 years working in various sales jobs, and currently hold a position with one of the largest Cable companies in the world. I have always loved the vampire genre, and in my head I would see the story going a different way. So this is my take on the classic and well loved fantasy. I hope you enjoy it.

There is no known cause for this affliction that strikes without warning, often causing total paralysis from the neck down,sometimes overnight. I am currently writing a book about my wife who suffers from the effects of TM. It is called, "A Thief in the Night."
