BAD NEIGHBORS, a science fiction novel, details the efforts of Stellar Patrol Colonel Ciarnan Lacy and his human and animal associates on the planet Aden to protect the population from a variety of on-world dangers including ferocious predator packs and a gigantic hunter from the deep ocean. All this pales in comparison to the threat posed by their grossly overpopulated near neighbor – annihilation as a distinct people and the possibility of genocide itself. It is only by risking and probably sacrificing his own honor and perhaps his freedom that Lacy can hope to shield the world that has become his charge.
HAUNTED WORLD, a fantasy novel, deals with the efforts of Colonel Dermot O'Donnell and his regiment to fortify the only breach in the defensive barrier against otherwise inevitable invasion by their implacable enemies. In the process, they encounter not only peril from the savage environment but face the challenge of gaining the favor of the ghosts of an ancient refugee column guarding the place or risk their enmity.
My Science fiction novel COLONISTS details the challenges and difficulties encountered by highly motivated people of two totally different systems and cultures as they endeavor to work together and understand one another while struggling to explore and settle a new planet.

THE PURGATORIO VIRUS, a science fiction novel, deals with the sudden outbreak of a highly lethal, extremely infectious virus for which there is no natural immunity, no vaccine, and no cure.

If they fail, unless a cure can be found, all twelve million people within the stricken metropolis will die. It is available from MuseItUp Publishing and other sources in electronic format.
FELL CONQUEST, a fantasy novel, chronicles the adventures of a crack military company under the command of Science Captain Cathal FitzGerald as they explore a vast region recently ceded following a desperate war with their Titan neighbors.

All have been carefully revised and edited and are available from MuseItUp Publishing in electronic format.
