Intriguing and riveting blend of urban fantasy and historical fiction!
A select group of men and women live hidden among us. They are known as repeaters, and they reincarnate again and again, growing stronger with each cycle. They inhabit every city in the world, and can sense one another through their powerful auras.
Rix, a scruffy-looking fellow with green eyes and long hair, is a 2,000 year old Belgian prince. He fights with a 300 pound metal rod and is given to philosophical musings on the nature of suffering and attachment.
Asteria wears leather and carries two swords, and is a 10,000 year old Amazon. She is silent, strict and a hell of a kisser.
Ramzy, the youngest of the trio, rides a motorcycle and quotes constantly from his favorite movie, Carlito’s Way.
Now the repeaters are in peril. An ancient being called the Soul-Eater has been devouring them one by one, while a cabal known as the Vigil threatens them with extinction. Their only hope is a young Jewish boy named Abraham, who fears that his family’s history of mental illness may be finally catching up with him – but who just might be the most powerful repeater of all.

Pieces of a Dream
Driving a taxi on the foggy streets of San Francisco, Iraq war veteran Louis Hedstrom is stuck in a rut so deep he can’t see the sun. He lives alone, has no friends and can’t bear to be touched.
When he meets and gets to know an African-American Muslim woman named Khadija, and then a mysterious courier named Hassan, he begins a spiritual journey to Islam that leaves him shaken, challenges everything he thought he knew, and threatens to alienate him from his family forever.
Filled with romance, action and spiritual insight, Pieces of a Dream creates its own genre in a single stroke, taking Muslim fiction to a new level. Passionate, honest and funny, it is a book that can be enjoyed by readers of all faiths, and is one that will not be easily forgotten.
