Did I mention I’ve written a few novels/novellas?
"A politically-incorrect manifesto. Anti-corporate crusader Dobie Pokorny wants to save the world. His old boss, Colonel Charonne, wants to stop him. On his “truth tour,” Dobie meets and falls in love with Kaylie while enduring attacks at every turn. Can they outrun Charonne and his minions? Will Major Watson steal her away? Is she too good to be true? And, what’s up with the little blue alien?"
" Clay and his adopted daughter, Jenna, look forward to their upcoming “homeland tour” to Russia. His intentions are pure. Hers, not so much. When she goes missing, his worst fears are realized. She is not the innocent little girl he thought she was. Not even close. Their only hope now is to catch the Last Train Out."
" For most people, winning $300 million in the lottery would be enough. They would buy a big house, travel the world and retire. Not Benny. He decided to take the money and run … for President. The house he had in mind was the White House. He didn’t want to travel the world so much as save it … from politicians. Retire? “I’ll retire when I’m dead!” he would say, not realizing so many people had a retirement plan in mind that would make him very dead. Welcome to the world of politics, Benny."
" Riva, a beautiful young “black ops” agent on her first assignment, tries to turn Alex into her own “asset” just to prove she can. When he loses both his job and his girlfriend, she thinks he’s putty in her hands. When he decides to go out with a bang, she is afraid she hasoverplayed her hand."
" Long before winning the lottery and running for president, Benny was living in L.A. working as a temporary word processor (typist). For his latest assignment, he thought he was taking just another temp job. He didn’t anticipate Venelia and the Dynamos. The what?"
Books/publications by other family members
For Control of Oz by Steve Holmes
"This novel might be “historical fiction” or “Faction” since it’s created from facts (at least according to the Internet). It is a compilation of pretty much all current “conspiracy” ideas put in story form. There are 5 parts. It started with Ken who was unfamiliar with “conspiracies” being put into the world of them. He met a Daniel and the Daniel’s sister, Margot, who were involved in a New World Order conspiracy. The story was how Ken jumped into the whole thing, how the New World Order came to be, how it affected the world, and how it was defeated."
