Novels
Utopia Falls Utopia Falls, Wyoming, 1869, a new town in a new territory which attracts determined people from conflicting political ideologies, nationalities, races, ethnicities and genders, all wanting to create a Paradise resembling what they had at home, but with them on top this time. Very much in the spotlight is the issue of giving women the right to vote, hold office and own property, along with whether Utopia will be run by profit-seeking Capitalists who believe in survival of the fittest, or service-oriented Democratic Socialist ‘Anarchists’ who want an ‘each gives according to their ability and takes according to their needs’ mandate as the only law enforced. Orchestrating and studying the events behind the scenes is Harvard-educated ‘Doc’, an academically-altruistic James Spader-like intellectual who uses his position as the town doctor and his skills as a clever manipulator of people to set up interesting social experiments, intended to study human nature and create an ideal Enlightened society that he can show off to his family and friends back East. But, Doc winds up becoming part of his own social experiment, suffering the consequences of the liberations he makes possible, then having to correct them by dealing with powerful adversaries he has made, basic human nature and complications originating from his own Wyoming-based family. In 1921, this sole, now mad, remaining citizen of Utopia relates the tale of the noble experiment to a young female doctor/aspiring Western writer who is lured to the ghost town, who he hopes will set the record straight regarding Utopia, and the real history of Wyoming that the Dime Novels and Cowboy Movies do not dare reveal.

REVOLUTIONARY PRINCES, PAUPERS AND PRETENDERS 1773 brought to Russia the biggest, most deadly, most tragic and most controversial People's Revolution in the history of the Empire. At the center of it was Yemelyan Pugachev, a charismatic, deceptive, dedicated, deluded, effective and often cruel Cossack who challenged the oppressive Catherine the Great and the wealthy Aristocrats who kept most of the population hungry and subservient.

A one time close friend to Yemelyan, Stefan is a humble, intelligent and kind Cossack who unwillingly finds himself being a central cog in the Revolutionary machinery that gets out of hand very quickly. Over-read, hyper-intelligent but pathetically life-inexperienced 23 year old Countessa Sventlana is beautiful hot-headed Revolutionary who is prepared to dedicate her life and her very creative literary pen to the Cause. Father Basili, a people-serving Pacifist belonging to the Old Believer sect, which is outlawed by Catherine, finds himself adminstering to the needs of peasants who rise up against their masters, but still sees God rather than guns as the means to saving his parishioners. Mustafa, an old, learned and dedicated Islamic 'godfather' to his fellow Tatars, joins the Christian rebels, knowing fully well that some of them consider Allah as much of a manifestation of evil as Czarina Katherine. On the other side of the War that allows NO one to remain neutral is Imperial Army Major Alexi Stralnikov, a scholarly, highly decorated and compassionate Aristocrat who does not agree with Catherine's oppressive policies, but fears the uneducated peaseantry rebels will turn into a mob if given power too soon, turning his beloved Russia into an oppressive and bloody Police State far worse than any Czar has instituted. Assisting, and mentoring, the middle-aged Alexi is Michael Kosinko, an old, wise and crafty Seargent who has seen, and survived, more war than most anyone on either side of the conflict. As the revolt turns into a Revolution, the participants on both sides question their motives, as well as their loyalties, each becoming what they never bargained for.

Wolf’s Pact 1970s murder mystery packed with psychological tension, historical introspection and dark humor. It’s the early 1970s, a period of political turmoil and psycho-sociological assessment in many places in America, but not in Glenville Falls, small town nessled in the mountains of Western Colorado, where men are men, women are women and anyone who preaches Peace, Love or Revolution is either expelled or ignored. But such changes very quickly when a serial killer starts torturing, mutilating finally hanging ‘Outside Agitators’ who, so it seems, have affiliations with Radical Left Wing groups in America, or KGB headquarters in Moscow. The burden of finding out who is behind it, and why, falls to New Jersey expatriate Wolf Smith, Hippie-Cop who is disillusioned with the Revolution but still is trying to fight the Establishment to create an Enlightened world based on both intellect and compassion. Wolf is helped, and hindered, in the murder investigations by his, thus far anyway, trusted Senior partner, Sam McDonald, veteran cowboy, ex-Marine Right Wing Deputy who has kept the secrets of his ‘all’s well all American’ town away from the outside world, and his new partner Wolf. Joining the tightly bound duo of politically-culturally mismatched lawmen is Lorena Jackson, former Miss Teen Colorado who is doing everything she can to be ‘one of the guys’ as a fledgling Assistant Deputy. The twenty-year old’s buried feminine aspirations are awakened by the now celibate and burnt-out-before-his-time Wolf, something surrogate father Sam is not happy about. In order to stop the murders, or murderers, all three law enforcement officers have to face their inner demons and deal with their own dark pasts. Most particularly Wolf, whose European roots and upbringing in New Jersey are central to ending a stream of killings that soon do not distinguish between the guilty or the innocent, revealing secrets about the colorfully dysfunctional town that could tear it and the world around it apart.

Texan Splitfire A young German intellectual, a good ole boy Texan cowboy and the Mexican woman they both fall in love get caught on opposite sides of the line in Civil War Texas. The 1860 Texas Hill Country contained many well-meaning groups with very different political agendas that somehow got along very well. Representing the anti-slavery, pro-Union, Pacifist Intellectual German 'Freethinkers' who fled the failed 1848 European Revolutions against the Kings and Capitalists is 23 years naive Hans Schmitt, a natural doctor and writer who wants above all else to be a cowboy, pushed to follow in his martyred Revolutionary father's footsteps by his Onkle Franz. Hans' best friend is Jake Johnson, a cowboy's cowboy, raised on the heroic tales of his fallen father at the Alamo, who sincerely believes in the ideals of the Confederacy, including the fact that Negros are an inferior race who can't handle freedom, and will use it against themselves. Maria is a beautiful, dangerously intelligent, and pathologically independent Tejano, who is actively Unionist, despite her rich father's suggestion that the best for anti-slavery, Catholic Latinos to beat the Protestant Anglos is to join them. Hans understands Maria's mind, but Jake connects to her heart. When Texas decides to join the Confederacy, not everyone is in agreement with such. Most particularly the Freethinkers and the Tejanos, who do their best to maintain good relations between their Anglo Confederate neighbors but also have to be true to their own convictions. When Martial Law is established, those who refuse to donate goods to the Confederate Cause, or who decline the 'invitation' to join the Arm are persecuted in all manners imaginable. Maria, Jake and Hans undergo major transformations when the corrupt and blood thirsty Confederate Home Guard goes on the warpath, which include learning the art, science and price of being on two sides at the same time. Based in real events that occurred in the Nueces River Massacre, the most infamous 'battle' that happened in Texas during the Civil War.
