Cosmic Rift

Cosmic Rift


There's nothing more scary than being lost...

An action-packed science fiction story filled with threats to our universe!


Commander Steve Strunk was raised on Mars.  He helped build Smart domes and trained astronauts.  With the aid of artificial intelligence, he believes he’s invincible.  His co-commander, Elizabeth Beals is a genius who signed up for space exploration to put her past behind her.  ISS Mars Headquarters labeled them the ideal team.  Nothing is ideal forever…

It’s 2376, and Steve and Elizabeth have been voyaging through space when their ship Amelia awakens them.  “Where are we?  The date and time has stopped tracking!  Why?”

Their infallible space craft suddenly fails!  The perfect team suddenly falters!  Nothing—no amount of training or simulated instruction—could have prepared them for this breach in their mission, and their neural interface to the ships A.I. computer ceases.  Can they trust their own senses at this critical time when they need them the most?

Vulnerable on an ancient planet and navigating blind at the far reaches of the known universe, their relationship is speeding on a passionate trajectory, and Steve and Elizabeth race with a rapidly closing window of time to fix a dooms-day force that will destroy the entire universe the…Cosmic Rift!


Available now at  Amazon.com in both Soft cover and Kindle.

First Communication

First Communication

Today is Monday, August 23, 2060, and humanity is threatened by an extinction-level event...

Dr. Elisa Holton is a brilliant genomics specialist.

Thornton Manning is a famous global leader.

Their worlds collide when a mysterious opening appears high in the atmosphere.  People panic!

What is this wild chaotic phenomenon? 


“I’m beginning to believe this atmospheric disturbance is a real alien contact -- a first communication,” Elisa says.  As scientists work to confirm the complicated signal Thornton and Elisa prepare to greet aliens. 

Everyone wonders: “Can an advanced species heal Earth?  If so, what'll they want in return?”

It’s often said: “New technology invites new dilemmas.”  How will humanity change?

Elisa is a naive genius researcher when Thornton dangles the carrot of fame in front of her, inticing her to help him.  But dabbling in the unchartered landscape of alien technology, he could face impeachment.   How far will he go with his illegal experimentation, and what does he desperately want?

Not everyone trusts the Global Regency government, and some people are still just bent on hating…

The terrorists begin hiding off-Earth, World War III begins, and a new group of protestors launch a covert mission of sabotage to stop an intergalactic communication.  When attacks from these two foes threaten the vital help we need, Thornton needs Elisa.  Will she and his elite crew of space fighters be enough to crush the opposition before our delicate communication link with the Neltans collapses? We're in a race against time to seal a life-saving Pact...

The Nelta Series begins!

Both Soft cover and Kindle are available at Amazon for First Communication...

In the video below, I read Chapter One of First Communication.

Battlefield Matrix

Battlefield Matrix

It’s a decade after World War III, global factional politics, and the destruction of Earth’s ozone layer that has threaten humanity with an extinction-level event.  The Earth is in an increasingly vulnerable position...


Veteran politician, Thornton Manning has been elected Chief Executive of Earth.  Most think he’s a hero, but he's really a lone wolf who likes hoarding alien technology, off-the-grid, where no one can catch him.  He believes he's impervious.


Tonight is February 27, 2068, and Earth’s global representatives are scheduled to sign a vital Pact with Ambassador Shaesar from Nelta.  Fearing a close relationship with the super-advanced Neltan species even though the Neltans can save Earth, technophobic terrorists are stirring an uprising and stealing technology.  They need to be met head-on before they can destroy the massive spacecraft under construction for the voyage to Nelta.  Only a few people have the skills to strike them down...


Before she was considered the world’s leading Genomic scientist, before she was thought of as Thornton Manning’s answer to a new type of warfare, and before she was both loved and hated by scientists around the globe, Dr. Elisa Holton was a young gifted researcher at Duke University.


Thornton knows without a doubt, Elisa is the answer to his problems.  He needs her, but she could also expose his off-Earth illegal experimentation!  When he's attacked, he has no choice but to offer her a deal of a lifetime onboard starship Sagan.  If they can seal The Pact with Ambassador Shaesar from Nelta!  Can they, on time?


When does helping someone - turn into hurting?


As action packed, fast-paced, and brutally realistic as it gets, JPs latest page turner shows readers how Dr. Elisa Holton and her elite team of savvy geniuses are the only ones who can secure The Pact, save humanity, and rescue Thornton Manning from a vicious enemy.


Battlefield Matrix is Available TODAY at Amazon in both Soft Cover and Kindle formats.
