Award-Winning Finalist in the “Fiction: Science Fiction” category of the 2015 USA Best Book Awards
The only time he feels safe, the only time he feels free, is when he's out in the ruins of 2122 AD Melbourne, foraging for scrap metals. The dull, drudgery of his life, however, is shattered when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the degenerate, savage Skel. A girl who then breaks the town's rigid conventions in her attempts to get to know him, a girl who also carries the pain of a broken heart.
Meanwhile, the nomadic Skel savages are ramping up their attacks on Newhome's foraging teams and infesting Melbourne's ruins in ever greater numbers. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town's doom?
Now Available $2.99 on Amazon KindleFor eighteen-year-old Ethan Jones, Nanako, and the surviving members of his foraging team, the trip back to Newhome is a nightmarish journey fraught with danger.
When they do get back to Newhome, Nanako's dreams of a normal life are shattered when Ethan's jilted ex-fiancé makes it her personal goal to turn Nanako's life into a living hell. And as if that isn't enough, she and Ethan fall afoul of a senior officer of the town's draconian Custodian police force.
To complicate matters, more memory fragments from Ethan's missing year surface, bewildering him with their horrific implications - what exactly did he get up to with the Hamamachi Rangers two years ago? Did they - did he - really commit such heinous crimes?
Furthermore, a Hamamachi Ranger who used to have the hots for Ethan stumps him when she asks if Nanako has told him the dreadful things that happened to her after she was dumped back in Hamamachi two years ago. What are these disturbing secrets from her past that Nanako is hiding from him?
Against this backdrop of personal anguish, the Hamamachi Rangers and ferocious Skel, dead set upon revenge, unleash their diabolical plan against Newhome. But how far will they go in their quest for vengeance? Can the Custodians stop them, or should Ethan risk his life again by stepping up to help save the town, going against Nanako and her insistence that he stay away from combat because she can't bear the thought of losing him.
Expatriate Forager Trilogy Pt 3
Now Available $2.99 on Amazon Kindle
Eighteen-year-old Ethan Jones, Nanako, and the other foragers have been forced to flee Newhome after being accused of being terrorists - a title they partly earned when they blew that massive hole in Newhome's eastern wall.
However, just because they have been exiled from the town does not mean they will abondon it. With Captain Smithson's parting words of "Don't forget us," ringing in their minds, they realise that the only way to save Newhome from the Hamamachi Rangers and their Skel allies is to document and expose the Rangers villainy.
Yet what sounds like a workable plan turns out to be nothing of the sort, for to obtain this information they will have to journey into the very heart of Skel territory and risk their very lives in the process.
Leigh's warning uttered at the beginning of the venture, that "nothing ever goes as you want or plan it to," turns out to be prophetic, for nothing goes as smoothly as they hoped. An assassin, a botched raid, and the Skel and Rangers stopping at nothing to stop them revealing the Rangers' activities all complicate matters.To add to their woes, a word whispered in Ethan's ear by a new addition to their party brings his world crashing down about his ears. And should he share this information with Nanako, all her hopes and dreams for the future will be destroyed as well, but how long can he keep such a secret from her?

A century after a global nuclear war, eighteen-year-old Chelsea Thomas has spent her life living in fear of Newhome’s paramilitary Custodians, due to a prohibited rogue ability.
In the past week, her twin brother – a forager – has uncharacteristically run away from home and work after the mysterious death of a teammate. Something has also scared her normally unflappable father half to death, and, their family is threatened with eviction.
But her brother’s disappearance presents her with a long-sought after opportunity to escape Newhome, since only the foragers – all men – are allowed to leave the town. All she has to do is impersonate her brother long enough to make her escape while foraging out in the ruins.
But she never counted on the kindness of Ryan Hill, a forager new to the team. Nor on barbaric Skel attacking the team the moment she makes her escape. She has to choose between making good on her escape or saving Ryan and the others.
