As America entered World War II, the U.S. Army routed its brightest draftees to colleges and universities. They were to master foreign languages and learn intelligence techniques.

Each was given a choice: rifle, machine gun or mortar.

CLAUS: A Christmas Incarnation, Volume One, The Child, is a 220,000 word, 700 page novel that includes some illustrations, poems, and songs, also by the author. The ebook and paperback offerings are affordable versions of the original custom ordered hardcover book. 1854. Elizabeth Dennison, a now elderly woman, awaits the arrival of a long lost acquaintance. The meeting, initially dreaded as much as desired, fortunately rekindles an old friendship. It is in this reunion, a passing of memories and knowledge, that the guest is told of Elizabeth's incredible life. So begins a story during the early 1800's, days after Elizabeth Dennison is removed from her home and sickly mother to be cared for by the wealthy Claussen Family. A favor for which, in return, she is to provide service as a maiden servant. At a young age, Elizabeth faces a wary relationship with the Claussens and her new surroundings. Most of all, she is both frightened and mesmerized by Christopher Claussen, a powerful man and husband to Lady Rebecca. It is this relationship that ends up sweeping Elizabeth away from her home in Scandinavia to battle the perils of a voyage across an ocean, and a life on the American frontier. Elizabeth comes to believe that Christopher holds sway not only over her life, but the world as a whole in something more than a natural way. He is god-like in her eyes and becomes very much the focus of her fragile childhood years. Volume one is a fulfilling read unto itself but leaves one with the option to continue on this adventure through volumes two and three. CLAUS is a saga rich with ambiance, details of the era, and characters that are as real as life. If you desire to be swept away with Elizabeth on a journey through time and emotion then you will not regret this story.More info →

The year is 2080. C. John Coombes opens his novel by painting a vivid picture of society and life in the not too distant future. The portrayal serves as a backdrop for a gripping story of suspense. The United States and Europe have fallen to the wayside. China assumes its place as the financial powerhouse of the world.
New York has been nick-named New China, after both the corporegion NEW CHINA and its colossal Manhattan headquarters complex, a mega-structure that dwarfs anything previously built by man.
The world is a place of peace and self-gratification, a place where most people do not work, but pursue hobbies and interests. Immortality is virtually guaranteed. The population has exploded. Real estate, especially in the congested areas, is virtually impossible to purchase or acquire even by the wealthiest of corporegions.
The conscience of the populous is increasingly alarmed by the new era of large scale construction, and its role in the accelerated devastation of natural habitat. Inevitably, the ruthless tactics of corporegions that continue to destroy the natural world collide with those citizens that are committed to its salvation.
In an unprecedented move, unexpectedly bold and violent, the conflict is settled once and for all—leaving a lesson learned not only for New Yorkers, but for all peoples of the world.More info →
