Bad Luck Charlie – Dragon Mage, Book 1

Charlie Gault had all the luck. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the good kind.

It was looking like Lady Luck had quite a grudge against him. In fact, at this point merely crashing the multi-billion-dollar ship he had helped design would have felt like winning the lottery compared to his current dilemma. If only he were so lucky. Things had started off all right – that is, until a freak wormhole unexpectedly swallowed his ship, leaving him stranded on an unknown planet far, far from home.

With the crew’s lives at stake, Charlie had no choice but to stop his whining, put on his big boy pants, and step up to save them all, and much to his surprise, it actually looked like he might succeed. Of course, that was when things really went sideways in ways that made merely crashing on an uncharted planet seem like a walk in the park.

Suddenly, faced with alien space pirates, talking dragons, and something that seemed very much like magic, Charlie found himself adrift, feeling like a space age Robinson Crusoe – only his man Friday was a blue-skinned alien, and this wasn’t just a desert island. It was a whole new galaxy.

Sunday Night Fears

Meet forensic accountant Sam Halloran in this gripping financial thriller reviewers are calling “fresh,” “non stop listening,” “captivating,” and “inspiring.”

Sam is ambitious, a bit desperate, and running from an ugly, anxiety-filled past. He’s got a family to support and everything hinges on this job as a newly minted auditor. But when he gets assigned to his first public company audit, he discovers something no one else did. Fraud… massive fraud! That’s when the walls start to close in.

Suddenly, average-joe-Sam becomes modern-day David, up against an unforeseen giant that could crush him in an instant. He’ll remind you a lot of Mitch McDeere in John Grisham‘s pioneering legal thriller, The Firm, a guy in so deep, so suddenly, he hasn’t yet checked the exits. And now it’s too late to run.

Sam sees he’s one of an army of young, far from savvy auditors paid to keep their heads down and not get too curious. But the enormous fraud he thinks he’s discovered just can’t be overlooked. Unfortunately, the company is on to him.

One of the great satisfactions of this book comes from accompanying Sam on his journey from troubled young man to potential victim to…well, anyone’s guess. And Golden, a real-life forensic accounting investigator, doesn’t disappoint. The first in a new series, Sunday Night Fears is as much psychological thriller as financial mystery that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats as they root for Sam’s success, then his safety, and when it comes right down to it, his soul. Because this audit has the potential to change him forever – in good, bad, or even fatal ways.

Fans of financial fraud movies like The Big Short and Ben Affleck’s The Accountant will have a fine time shivering at Sam’s struggles and cheering him on. But they won’t expect the ending. Even after the shocking denouement, Golden has another card up his sleeve, guaranteed to stun even the most sophisticated.

A Year in the Borderlands

A seven percent grasp of the infinite. The universe may be limitless, but our senses are not. Just as the human eye sees but a small percentage of the cosmic wave spectrum, in the same way, most of us are only able to perceive a similar sliver of what we brazenly term “reality”, even with the use of all five of our scientifically acknowledged senses. 

Shift that frequency a touch, nudge your perspective just a little off its center, and you, too, may enter the realm of the surreal: a place that in truth may be as near to you at the moment as the blind spot at your back…the shadowy underside of your desk…that strip of woods at the rear of your property that harbors dark terrors after sunset – hideous and unbelievable “figments of your imagination” that watch and giggle as you study them from your backyard with chilling toes while fighting the primal urge to bolt back to the perceived safety of your home. 

Inspired by Twilight ZoneOuter LimitsNight GalleryTales from the Crypt, and plain old-fashioned campfire stories, this month-by-month account of people-supernatural relations spans its own sci-fi/fantasy/horror/comedy spectrum, touring the weird side of the cosmos while leaving the passengers comfy and unscathed in their listening chairs. Or at least that’s what the brochure says. Might want to make sure that chair is sturdy.
