Murder and masquerade balls, suspense and swordfighting - Black Throne Conspiracy is a gripping adventure where everyone is maneuvering to advance their own interests and those of their Houses.

West Pacific Supers

Imagine a world like our own but with superheroes. Would the superheroes change the world or would the world change the superheroes?

West Pacific Supers: Rising Tide         Released: June 2011

West Pacific Supers is the professional superhero team for the city of West Pacific in northern California. It’s hard to know what’s more dangerous for the members of West Pacific Supers: the supervillains out to destroy the city or the superazzi determined to uncover all of their dirty secrets. If juggling heroics and public relations weren’t hard enough, the Season begins with a shocking death. Now new team members must be recruited to counter two major threats: a scientist with an insane plan that threatens California and an enemy from within West Pacific Supers itself. The team will succeed only after taming their massive egos and getting help from unlikely sources. Unfortunately, just like winning fame and fortune, beating the bad guys always comes at a heavy price.

West Pacific Supers: Rising Tide is the first book in the world of West Pacific Supers and is now available as an e-book at for only $0.99. The print version is available for $11.99 here.
