Ghosts & Magic
For Conor Night, the world’s only surviving necromancer, staying alive is an expensive proposition. So when the promise of a big payout for a small bit of thievery presents itself, Conor is all in. But nothing comes easy in the world of ghosts and magic, and it isn’t long before Conor is caught up in the machinations of the most powerful wizards on Earth and left with only two ways out:
Finish the job, or be finished himself.
When a strange message arrives through an even stranger channel, necromancer Conor Night is driven to discover its meaning, even if it takes a road trip that he might not be healthy enough to survive. Joined by his sexy partner and an undead wise-ass, he’s about to rush headlong into a magic and mayhem filled night in New Orleans that will leave his future riding on a roll of the dice.
Luck, be a lady…
Conor Night, the world’s only surviving necromancer, is used to having bad days. After all, he’s spent the last few years as a minor pawn in the Game of Houses while keeping one foot planted firmly in the grave. But between the job offer he can’t refuse from a wizard he doesn’t trust, and the appearance of a cult bent on sending him to the afterlife, his days are about to get a whole lot worse.
He’s used to the threat of death. Death making threats? That’s new.
Conor Night, the world’s only necromancer, is starting to think that his life is finally coming together. His last job not only left him funded, but also helped him fall off the radar of the world’s two most powerful wizards. Of course, being a necromancer always has its downsides, and when he’s forced into a job that will leave the Houses on the brink of all-out war, he begins to realize just how down those sides can be.
Conor Night, the world’s only necromancer, has finally learned what it means to be the world’s only necromancer. It’s a lesson he wishes he had never learned, because thanks to him an ancient wizard with an apocalyptic agenda is back in business, ready to finish cleaning house...
My name is Landon Hamilton. Once upon a time I was a twenty-three year old security guard, trying to regain my life after spending a year in prison for stealing people’s credit card numbers.
Now, I’m dead.
Okay, I was supposed to be dead. I got killed after all; but a funny thing happened after I had turned the mortal coil...
My name is Landon Hamilton. I’m a ghost.
I died five years ago, except I didn’t get to rest in peace like most of the departed. Instead, I was tapped by Dante (yes, that Dante) in Purgatory to become his champion and save humankind from the rest of the Divine - you know, angels and demons and their mortal followers.
It seemed like a great deal at the time. Hindsight? It sucks.
My name is Landon Hamilton.
I’m the only thing keeping the universe in one piece.
I thought fighting angels and demons was a tough gig, but now I’d give anything to go back to the not-that-good, not-so-old days. There’s a new game in town, and it’s one that's threatening to destroy everything that has ever been created.
Oh, and my friends and I are the only ones who can stop it.
My name is Landon Hamilton.
I’m in hell.
I was sacrificed to save the world, and imprisoned with the very thing that sought to destroy it.
It wouldn’t be so bad, except the love of my afterlife is stuck here with me, and the monster in this cage has all of eternity to make us pay for shutting him down.
Even worse? Our only hope of escaping this torment rests with the vampire who set it loose to begin with.
I hope it was worth it.
His name is Landon Hamilton, but to the angels and demons wrestling for control of our world he’s known simply as ‘diuscrucis’. He is the balancer, the great equalizer, a once mortal and former god who toes the line between good and evil to prevent the end of days...
Landon Hamilton, the champion of humankind in the war between good and evil, had thought he'd seen the last of the demon Abaddon when he destroyed the Box.
He was wrong.
When your greatest adversary is also one of the people you love the most, can there be a happy ending?
Tears of Blood
A wizard without family... A warrior without memory... A world without hope...
One thousand years ago, the world was broken and reborn beneath the boot of a nameless, ageless tyrant. He erased all history of the time before, enslaving the people and hunting those with the power to unseat him.
The power of magic.
Magic is a disease. Magic can be cured. He has it, they need it, or thousands more will die.
In the second book of the Tears of Blood series, Silas and Eryn find themselves running out of time and with only one hope: an ancient map discovered by chance, revealing the location of a place thought only to exist in legend. The Dark. A place of nightmares. A place of death. A place of magic gone horribly wrong.
The promise is broken, an ancient enemy is revealed.
Silas and Eryn’s journey to the Dark has changed them both, leaving Silas closer to his past, and Eryn at the precipice of a fate worse than death...
The fight is nearly over. His reign of darkness is reaching its end.
The cure for magic has been discovered, and for Talon the truth of its source is more horrible than he could have imagined. Tormented by what he has learned and on the verge of falling from reason to madness, he leaves the Refinery more determined than ever to put an end to his tyranny once and for all...

Oh, and yes, that caricature does look a lot like the real me. Maybe a little skinnier. Maybe a little more hair. And I never use a pen and paper to write anything because I'd never be able to read it back. But otherwise, just like me.
