About R. C.
Fortunately, in secondary school, my interest in reading was sparked. A close friend and an instructor who took an interest in a boy he later called 'The rebel without a clue.,' were instrumental in my learning the value of a good book. Both piqued my interest in reading.
My lifelong friend inspired me to read J.R.R. Tolkien, and I became addicted to the fantasy genre. The instructor required I read exciting historical novels for academic credit. Frank Norris, Leon Uris, and Ken Follett are inspirations and fuel my love of history.
Born to a military family, it was logical that I follow the military tradition. However, after four years of "yes sirs" and scraping the wax off floors, I decided there must be more fun in a corporate career.
After thirty-plus years of work experience across the globe, the corporate career landed me in Colorado.

Aydin Trammell - An Excerpt
Damn, that rain is sideways. At least it is warm in here. What a dive, these vinyl seats are sticky. Phil loves dives. He never stops eating.
“Did she text you?”
“Did you text her?”
“Then, what are you doing on your phone?”
“She is at her mother’s house.”
His fork stopped, hovering just close enough to the next bite. The fake maple syrup dripped off the pancake and on to his thigh. Phil knew Aydin was not telling him something.
“What did you do?”
“I can track her phone. She always goes home to her parent’s place in Lone Tree. She feels safe there. She thinks I won’t go there and drag her ass out into the street.”
“You won’t, and you know it. Allison’s dad won’t let you do something stupid, like dragging her into the street. That didn’t go so well last time. Her dad loves you more than he loves her. He won’t let you do something stupid.”
“Yeah, Pops is good people, but her mother is a bitch just like her. Two peas in a pod.”
“Why did you marry her? You have known her family since you were five. What’s the deal with her mother and your father? How come they kept getting stationed on the same bases? Pops I get. He was spying before we were born. Why did Pops marry Allison’s mother? Never mind, I’ll ask Pops. You had to know what Allison is like before you married her. You knew why you were saying the forever I Do. What’s the deal?”
Phil’s timing is terrible.
A former Special Ops Commando thought covert missions in the desert were rough. Then he married a spy who wants him dead. Surviving the repeated attempts on their lives, Aydin Trammell and his sidekick Phil uncover who and why someone wants Aydin dead.

Is Aydin willing to kill who they lure into the light? Aydin and Phil can’t keep everyone alive.
Pops, Allison’s father says, let them all die.

The Find – Part One
Our destinies are not set in stone, but the price to modify your future might change everything.

When Max finds the crystalline Orb at the bottom of a pond, he learns he found his golden ticket out of town.
At first, the Orb’s magic only allows him to see the future. Soon enough, he discovers it possesses much more power.
The Orb reveals Jamie’s future, and it breaks Max’s heart. All he can think about is making sure the events he sees never come to pass.
Max learns to use the Orb to alter the future, but not without causing physical harm to himself.
He’s careful when using his newfound power. When the Orb reveals a devastating event in Jamie’s future, he vows to save her no matter the cost.
How much pain can one boy endure to save the one he loves?
Would it be enough to protect her?
Will altering the future come at a cost too high for him to pay?

My name is Nathan. My friends, the ones I have left, call me NT. I never wanted any of this. But with the threat of billions of corpses piling up, they forced our hand.
I miss the old days. Life was good before the CEO of a pharmaceutical cooperation slid off the rails with wicked ambition.
At first, no one fully understood the new abilities. When the new dissidents morphed into a formidable adversary, we learned of their cruel intent. Now we have no choice but to strike the enemy right where they live and make it painful.
Strike hard. It is our only chance. The burden of a future, the hope of humankind, has fallen on me.
Heaven, help us all.

To protect the love of his young life, Max makes one tiny tweak at a time to change the present and prevent the devastating chain of events from occurring.

All he wants is to protect her and his friends, no matter how much pain he has to endure. But destiny is not easily altered, and soon, the pain he suffers might undermine his final goal: save Jamie and his friends from the future, the Orb forces him to watch over and over again.
To protect the people he loves, how much pain is too much?
I received a lovely letter from a young reader about my short story series: Max and the Dream Time.
The reader said she liked the stories but, because of the style I used to write them, she found them too hard to read.
It is always good to listen to your fans.
I re-wrote the stories.
The characters, timeline, components, all of the details are the same. What changed is the format and construction is simpler and easier to read.
If you have read the five parts, you may find the story easier to follow. If you have not read the series or stopped after one or two, you will enjoy the new stories.
If you are finding Max, there is one rule: Do not change the future. Can an average kid learn to control the ability to see the future? Will the pain be too much?
Max and the Dream Time - Part Five
Max’s hometown is dead. Desperation rules the townsfolk and those who can leave do, but others stay and try to survive. Max knows the Orb can help, but he also realizes limiting the changes the Orb force on him is the key to controlling the pain it causes.
Before the oath, Max used the Orb only to help the people he loves. But when his friend broke their promise, he realized his duty may be more involved than he ever expected. Keeping everyone safe will require suffering, and to Max, saving his dying town may be worth the pain.
His friends realize the effect the Orb has on Max and extract a promise from him to sever the connection. He agrees, but Max knows the truth.
Some connections go too deep to be severed, and the price of freeing himself from the Orb may be too great to pay.
