According to the book description of Doomsday Diaries (Volume 1), “When Americans are alerted of an imminent nuclear attack, Luke and his parents retreat to their underground shelter, barely escaping the deadly blasts. The years crawl by, and as their supplies continue to diminish, Luke's desire to leave the shelter is further driven by his raging teenage hormones and sexual curiosity. But when the time to leave the shelter finally arrives, what waits for them on the surface surprises them all. Follow Luke as he gives his personal account of doomsday, growing up in a fallout shelter, and a civilization that rises from the ashes of the apocalypse.”

According to the book description of Doomsday Diaries II: New World Order (Volume 2), “After suffering a devastating loss, Luke must struggle to escape the New World Order and find his love, Kara.  Follow Luke as he continues his journey, forming new alliances and unraveling the mysteries of the civilization that has risen from the ashes of the nuclear apocalypse. While he continues struggling to come to terms with all that has happened and the obstacles that lie ahead, a mysterious woman shows Luke that there is much more at stake than he had previously believed.”

According to the book description of Doomsday Diaries III: Luke the Protector (Volume 3), “Devastated by the loss of yet another loved one, Luke embraces his destiny as he realizes his true power as a Protector. As he continues guiding and protecting Grant and the others from the dark and powerful Winthrop, Luke must come to terms with the paradigm shift within himself. As Luke accepts his fate, his calling is realized, but will he be able to escape the clutches of the New World Order and save mankind?”

According to the book description of Doomsday Diaries IV: Luke and the Lion, “No longer constrained by his earthly body, Luke transcends his human existence. He passes through time, giving aid to those who would secure his fate, and setting the stage for the final battle between the righteous and the wicked. But as King Winthrop closes his icy grip around the last surviving humans, the Great Counselors of the world have summoned a higher power. The Lion is coming.”

According to the book description of Hurry Up and Wait, “This book consists of the written letters between my wife and I while I was away at recruit training, Parris Island, South Carolina. We've held nothing back - save a few names to protect the identities of the characters portrayed in our letters - and we've agreed to share our experience with anyone interested in reading about it. This is our story.”

According to the book description of C-Town, “There’s not much for a young person to do in Corning, a small industrial town in upstate New York. While parents are working swing shifts to make ends meet, their restless children resort to acts of depravity and self-indulgence. Set in the late 1990’s, this is a story of a twenty-year-old man who is struggling with questions of purpose and existential nihilism. Patrick Mitchell spends most of his time at the YMCA, while attending community college classes, and training at the local karate dojo. He’s distracted by frivolous relationships, fights, and drugs, but his personal moral dilemmas will all seem much less important when an unusual occurrence shakes him to the very core.”

According to the book description of Benjamin: God helps those who help themselves, “The harsh winter and great outdoors of upstate New York provide Benjamin with the only solace from an otherwise agonizing existence. His mother's abusive alcoholic boyfriend, the bully on the bus, and a Math teacher who pays a little too much attention to schoolboys are slowly chipping away at his dignity and feelings of self-worth. Benjamin clings to any sense of normalcy until a series of compounding events drives him to the very edge of suicide. He begs God for help - a divine intervention - but his prayers go unanswered and he has an epiphany: God helps those who help themselves.”
