Seven Dreams of Inanna - Historical Romance 

Once there was a great empire that dwelt between the Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers:  the Empire of the Sumerians.  One of the greatest cities of Sumer was Ur, near modern-day Basra, Iraq.  Sumer flourished in the Fertile Crescent some four millennia ago.  The Kings of Sumer ruled for more than a thousand years, and the people between the rivers developed a lively, intelligent culture that echoes down through the ages.  Among the Sumerian pantheon of gods and goddesses was Inanna, Goddess of Love – who became the prototype for the later Ishtar and Isis, Artemis and Venus.
Seven Dreams of Inanna is a timeless love story in the grand tradition.  It is the tale of Klori, daughter of King Mesan, and her lover, Kesh, heir to the usurped throne of Lagash.  It is a tale of intrigue and danger, of heroism and courage, of adversity and redemption – a story that unwinds amid the sun baked brick buildings and colorful tapestries of ancient Ur, where ziggurats rise to meet the cloudless sky and sharp daggers are forever poised against the unwary.  It is a story that takes place at the dawn of recorded history; and yet, one that still resonates today.  For it is a story that is replayed each generation, and one that will continue for so long as love endures

The Sandscrapers - Historical Novel

"Sandscrapers" were the men who crewed the little known and unheralded LSMs (Landing Ships - Medium) in World War II.  These were the ships that delivered men and materiel to the beaches under fire throughout the South Pacific island hopping campaign.  The Sandscrapers chronicles the lives of the brave crewmen who repeatedly sailed their boxlike craft under the guns of Japanese shore batteries, and celebrates the sacrifices of those who gave "their last full measure of devotion" to the cause of freedom.

The River Wolf - Historical Fiction - Alternate History

It is the golden age of the second Napoleonic era.  In 1844, paddle and steam replace wind and sail and Napoleon Bonaparte is President of the United Republics of South America.  Wars for independence and unification, wars against Spain, Portugal, and the republics themselves, are at an end.  Internal conflicts, economic strife, and border disputes were removing themselves from the battlefields and settling in the more contentious and convoluted halls of government.  After twenty-three years, the continent and even the world has finally reconciled itself to Napoleon’s rule – Napoleon’s South America.
Eligus Bronsan, a sea officer and mercenary who has known nothing but war, must make a place in a world that has no use for him.  Under the auspices of the Continental Survey, Le Bureau Examen Continental, Bronsan and his sailors are employed on a mission of exploration that turns into a deadly quest from the jungles of the Amazon, to the British Falklands, through the Straights of Magellan, and finally north to Concepción, Napoleon’s seat of power.

Joseph, Ruler of All Egypt - Historical Romance

Joseph, the eleventh son of Jacob and first son of Rachel, is sold into slavery by his brothers for 20 pieces of silver because they are jealous of the attention their father showers on his “son of my old age.” In Egypt, Joseph is sold into the service of Potiphar, an Egyptian official and placed in charge of Potiphar's household. There he proves his worth in all his duties. However, Potiphar's wife has amorous designs on their new slave. When Joseph refuses her advances, she falsely accuses him of rape and Joseph is thrown into prison.
While in prison, Joseph develops a reputation for interpreting the dreams of the other inmates, one of whom is a high official of the Pharaoh’s government. When, years later, the Pharaoh has a dream of his own in which he sees "Seven lean kine devouring seven fat kine on the Nile, and of seven withered ears devouring seven full, ripe ears," the official remembers Joseph's skill and recommends him to the Pharaoh.
Joseph is brought before Pharaoh and tells him that the dream foretells seven years of plenty, to be followed by seven years of famine. Impressed with his interpretation, the Pharaoh appoints Joseph viceroy and thus begins the reign of the Ruler of All Egypt.

One Square Mile of Mayhem - Historical Novel 

John T. Moriarty's One Square Mile of Mayhem is the first work of fiction in a series of four books about the adventures of Tim Mahony, a teenage Irish boy facing the dilemma of growing up in a racially torn Catholic parish in Cleveland, Ohio.  The book is 97% based on true events that took place in the 1950s.
Tim Mahony's parents migrated from County Kerry, Ireland to Glenville, one of the neighborhoods on the east side of Cleveland, where they bought a delicatessen and worked hard to make a new life for themselves.  Over time, their little shop became a hangout for an undisciplined gang of white teenagers who were then fighting three other gangs: African Americans from the nearby neighborhood of Glenville, other Caucasians from East Cleveland, and Italian Americans from Murray Hill.  Chaos and mayhem ruled the daily lives of these young teenagers.  The violent sociological and racial metamorphosis that plagued the East Side came to a head when a gang member was murdered at the Annual Parish Bazaar, the one event designed to bring the warring factions together.  The death threatened to transform the ongoing strife into open warfare.  Could some degree of racial harmony be restored despite the tragic death?

The Autobiography of Gaius Petronius Merva - Historical Novel     

Legend has it that the city of Rome was founded in 753 B.C. by twin brothers, Romulus and Remus. Over the next eight centuries, the city on the seven hills grew into the greatest empire the world had ever known.  It reached the peak of its power during the reign of Caesar Augustus, adopted son of Julius Caesar. The Pax Romana lasted for two hundred years, until the death of Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
By the Third Century A.D., the vigor of Rome was largely spent. The mighty Roman legions had met their match in the impenetrable German forest, the arid Libyan desert, and the hostile mountains east of Constantinople. The people of Rome had tired of the mantle of Empire, their administrators had become  corrupt, and their emperors short-lived.
Into this world was born Gaius Petronius Merva during the reign of Emperor Elagabalus in 220 A.D. The scion of a prosperous family in Antioch, Roman Syria, the young Gaius proved a disappointment to his father, who exiled him into the service of Rome as a soldier.
