Bennett O'Reilly is a chaos theorist studying monkey group behaviour.  They both work for the HiTek Coporation, strangers until a misdelivered package brings them together. A moment of synchronicity - if not serendipity - which leads them into a chaotic system of their own, complete with a million dollar research grant, cafe latte, tattoos and a series of unlucky coincidences that leaves Bennett monkeyless, fundless and nearly jobless. Sandra intercedes with a flock of sheep and an idea for a joint project - after all, what better animal to study both chaos theory and herd mentality?

    Book I of the Rome series. On New year's Day in 110 B.C. two very different men watch the latest Roman mediocrities assume the coveted mantle of consul.  One is Sulla, handsome and debauched son of an impeccably aristocratic house prevented by penury from claiming his birthright and the other is Marius, a wealthy rustic barred by his low birth from grasping his prophesised destiny - to become the First Man in Rome.

A meticulously researched and accurate historical novel.

    Book I of The Warrior trilogy. Stripped of his rank, exiled Justin Allard is given one last chance to save his honour - by risking his life in the gladiatorial arenas of Solaris VII.

It's Justin's own half brother Daniel, lance commander in the dread Kell Hounds mercenary battalion. But Daniel has more serious worries than dealing with his embittered half brother. Princess Melissa Steiner, heir apparent of the Lyran Commonwealth, has been hijacked and the future of the Inner Sphere depends on her fate.
