SPIRITUAL VALUES relating to The Urantia Book are threaded into both  my fiction and new thought spirituality books. After my first novel, Dark Riders, explored themes of restless alienation and heroism, two more novels have developed time and space world mortal ascension plan (Be Ye Perfect) spiritual themes. The Alien Intimacies link a male protagonist with a feminine ET and an alien exploration; Edge of Dark Light brings him a profound weekend experience of mystery and violence.

My nonfiction books include Beyond Cynicism: Liberating Voices from the Spirit Within, which includes Q/A with celestials calling themselves the One Team, various voices, one message. In Celestials over Cincinnati: Lessons of the Planetary Correcting Time, I trace our experiences in transmitting celestial teachers from 1991-96, with transmitted lessons from scores of other teachers across the country.

FROM CYNICISM TO HEROISM -- Xavier Thorn, his wife killed, stripped his life down to the essentials he needed to strike at the Mafia - an angry cynicism that he yearned to turn to heroism and courage, along with an arsenal of weapons and explosives and the vision of a one-man crusade for justice that he saw nowhere in a thoroughly corrupt society. But he didn't reckon on confronting two mysterious women, profane Chelsea and angelic Columbine. The trio embarks on a stormy and erotic on-the-road adventure with plot twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. After a surprising and outrageously comic attack on a New Orleans Mafia Don, ensuing confrontations with Mafioso enforcers and a vicious motorcycle gang dispatched to kill them all test their mettle and their commitments to one another.

Mad mirth mingles with nonsense to make a stew, including a big dose of satire for the President Donald.  Includes the parody, Game of Thorns.

A spiritual sci-fi adventure that features benevolent visiting extraterrestrials and altered state travel back to the roots of planetary civilization. Troubled protagonist Jason confronts an enigmatic alien woman and learns from master explorer Mega aboard a visiting spaceship and in time-drops to explore the fate of their ancient garden colony, destroyed in the Lucifer Rebellion.

Dark Riders

Slouching Through Absurdity

The Alien Intimacies

Lucifer’s Gardens stands alone as an action adventure that explores spiritual evolution and God’s ‘Be Ye Perfect’ plan. God created evolution. Lucifer rebelled against it. The Father conceived a universe of elemental planets in evolution, with unique mortal personalities to evolve with them, and ascend to perfection. Lucifer considered it a massive waste of resources. Two ages come to grips with the Lucifer Rebellion’s impact on Earth.

Lucifer's Gardens

A collection of essays dealing with spiritual, moral, societal and political issues.

On Top Of It

Lessons of the Planetary Correcting Time. As a skeptical observer I participate in the advent of celestial teachers in a Urantia Book study group, and follow a phenomena that soon emerges into a global influx of spiritual assistance in these critical earth times. From doubts, I evolve into a transmitter/receiver (TR) and access lessons that can help us achieve balance in tumultous, quickening and challenging times. Includes spiritual growth transmissions from more than 35 teachers.
