Heinrich Himmler started a program called ‘Lebensborn’ in a little village near Munich, 
Aryan women came here to be impregnated by a selected group of SS officers. 

They would then give the Aryan babies to designated German families. To reach their goal, they kidnaped thousands of blond blue-eyed Polish children, Germanized them, gave them German names, and assigned the children to elite German household. 

‘The Baby Factory’ is inspired in part by Himmler’s Lebensborn program. 

The story is about the discovery of and attack on a Los Angeles based, secret and demonic organization, ‘The Genesis Society’. 

Their goal, like Himmler, attempting to resurrect the Aryan race on a grand scale in America. 

Stevie, an African-American investigative journalist is writing an exposé on Hollywood prostitutes. 

Genesis Society agents kidnap Margie, a young blond blue-eyed prostitute who happens to be the star of Stevie’s story.

What happens when a clandestine group of politicians and intelligence operatives run prototype weapons through Lieutenant Peter Bank’s jurisdiction? Nothing, they’re clandestine, no one knows they exist or what they do... Right? 

Correct, right up until one of their prototype weapons turns up at a drug bust, along with a congressman’s son who likes to moonlight as criminal elite. 

The paperwork on the arrest is not finished before an army of politicos and local executive pressure comes down on Banks and his narcotics unit like a thousand year flood. Everyone wants to make the arrest of a prominent politician’s offspring go away, even Bank’s own Chief of Police. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem. Most cops follow orders from the chief, most cops have a stake in their careers.

Peter Banks has been burned before by political fixers who seemed to think the various strata of society are not all created, or treated equally under the law. Banks also has a team behind him that would follow him to hell and back if it meant getting the job done. 

From an exclusive island off the coast of South Carolina, the mountains in the upstate, to the gutters of Charleston, SC Banks and his team will charge through mercenaries, assassins, and their own hierarchy to see justice done; and they will do it at terrible cost. 

Spoilers details what happens when a determined police unit puts service and doing the right thing above themselves. It is a fast paced, intricate, and explosive read that leaves the audience exhausted and begging for more after the last page is turned.

Robert Leland has been through a rough couple of years. First, his wife divorced him after she had an affair with the senior partner in her law firm, then he was tortured nearly to death after the mobsters he was staking out found out about his FBI undercover assignment. His injuries have cost him more than his cover, and it will take years for him to regain his physical abilities. In the meantime, his FBI boss wants him out of the team—there’s no room in the DC mob taskforce for an undercover who can’t walk. 

Reva Findstein needed a change. Her family had deserted her for Israel and were now happily embracing their Jewish history while she languished in the old Maryland neighborhood. Only her DC FBI career had kept her occupied through her long, lonely days lately. Now, after nearly 20 years, she wondered whether she should quit the FBI and find something else. Then, Reva’s boss takes on a special case. They need to transition a new agent for their terrorist team. He’s in bad shape after running afoul of the mobsters he was investigating. 

Can Reva help Robert regain his humanity? Will helping Robert give Reva something to live for after all these years? Sparks fly, but can these two overcome years of baggage and physical and mental anguish in order to grab a second chance at love?

Over thousands of years, the tools of war have evolved from simple clubs to precision guided missiles while the warriors wielding those weapons have changed very little.

In 2099, genetics became the deadliest science. Douglas Carter was among the first of this new breed of living weapons called paranormals. Already a consummate soldier before undergoing transformation into a paranormal, he has fought for his country for his entire adult life. With the United States and all other nations at the brink of destruction, he and a team of other genetically enhanced soldiers from many nations fight a war that will either free humanity from global slavery or doom it to a life under tyranny.

For centuries, wizards working for the World Council have protected humanity from the supernatural horrors - living undetected among them. Lauren Simon is the wizard in charge of defending the citizens of Los Angeles. She has a flair for fashion and a knack for dispatching the undead, deranged demons and freaky fae -they’re not all cuddly little sprites. 

Lauren must stop a turf war between the powerful Prince of the Los Angeles Vampire thrall and a Mexican drug cartel -usually the two killing each other would be a win-win situation. A better question was why these two were fighting. It didn’t make sense: they were both into drugs and prostitution and there were more than enough buyers and sellers to go around. 

Lauren faces perhaps the toughest obstacles to job of keeping Los Angeles and its citizens save. The vampires have a contract out on her life, for a murder she didn’t commit. A Daywalker challenged her to a fight to the death in the USC Coliseum. She would keep the Trojans undefeated streak alive or die trying. And a rogue wizard was trying to steal the Sphere of Destiny, a relic so old and evil that Hitler coveted it. She can’t afford to fail; she is the only one standing between the citizens of Los Angeles and supernatural death and destruction.

What would you do if you were about to die and weren’t good enough for Heaven or bad enough for Hell? What if you were given three choices and only had a few days to decide what your future would be? What would you do? 

Being a ghost isn’t so bad, but being a ghost racing against the clock sucks—especially when, if you lose, you might end up in Hell. The countdown has started and Cin and Jess only have until someone decides to pull the plugs on their life support to decide what to do. Detective Bruce Miller of the Nashville Metro PD is just trying to do his job—and right now, his job is to find a rapist. The problem is, the victim is in the hospital and her doctor won’t let him near her. When a second victim is found raped and murdered, he knows his job is on the line. Then the trail leads him to a child sex ring and implicates the Chief of Police, and he knows he’s in trouble. 

Cinthia McRenolds was an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. At least, she was until she and her best friend Jess wind up in a little town called Tremor. Now they’re faced with deciding whether to return to brain-damaged bodies and try to do something good enough to get them into Heaven, reincarnate, or stay in Tremor. Not exactly an easy choice, especially after witnessing the Hell Parade that passes through Tremor on a regular basis.

His species became extinct decades before the aliens rescued and cloned him, but he still must do everything he can to save them all. Karm must travel back in time, create the most powerful financial empire ever seen on the planet Dyan’ta and assemble a team of experts who must be kept in the dark about his plans for fear of upsetting the timeline. 

Dr. Jontar Rocker is an up and coming geneticist whose untested and controversial theories on cloning become the lynch pin in Karm’s schemes. Maripa, Karm’s petite and beautiful surrogate niece, personal secretary, and deadly bodyguard must learn to trust Karm despite his deceptions and secrets. Can the emerging love between Dr. Rocker and Maripa survive the demons and surprises of their own past, as well as Karm’s impenetrable air of mystery? 

Karm and his companions must save the Brin. To do so, they must band together to overcome Brach, the ambitious and obsessed monarch. Determined to take control of Karm's vast industrial empire, Brach joins forces with his conniving brother Pareth, leader of The Faith an ultra-conservative religious order committed to stopping Dr. Rocker and his heretical efforts to develop cloning techniques. Nothing less than survival of their species is at stake.

Without early memories or a family to tell her who she is, Andelyn instinctively knows that her life is in constant flux because she is hiding from someone dangerous and impossible to identify. When strangers kidnap her, Andelyn’s only way to escape is on an abandoned boat that rushes her through a secret underground river passage leading to Meridia, a mysterious land hidden inside the earth. 

Buried deep within the walls of the palace there, Andelyn discovers a legend about the Envisage: a person with the uncanny power to save or destroy Meridia with their thoughts. But why doesn’t anyone seem to know who the Envisage is, and why are they so afraid to find out? 

With the unresolved mystery of who she was running from in the first place, Andelyn begins to wonder if all of this could have something to do with her. Is she hiding from this Envisage that people seem so afraid to speak of? And why? 

This much is clear: sometimes you risk more than your own fate when you find out who you are, especially if what you should have feared most is what you are capable of—and especially if fear changes everything.
