The Last Bar In NYC

The Last Bar In NYC
Thank heaven for New York City bartenders. They satisfy your boozy thirst in a strife-filled life, and a good one will listen to anything on your mind when no one else will. Our barman/narrator is one of the good ones. He’s been disposed under chins and elbows and cocktail napkins and ashtrays and spilled drinks for decades in New York City for countless drinkers willing to confess anything to a bar top. From one barstool to another, our barman’s raw and soulful voice delivers a metropolitan story of good times, struggle, regret, and salvation. A story put together with well-known real-life places, countless celebrity faces, and amazing characters only found in New York City. Maybe you live in New York or wondered about living there.

Maybe you’ve dreamed of tending a bar or owning a bar or sitting in a bar in New York City. Maybe you’ve always wanted to meet a bartender from the prohibition era who pissed into Al Capone’s beer or a horse-betting Rabbi that can explain the world order or see Mickey Mantle fall down drunk with his face buried in a filthy barroom toilet. Maybe you’re interested in a wine and beer-stained, cigarette burned oak top metamorphism that will add some hardened experience to your teetotaler life. Or maybe you just have a tiny sadistic stripe, and you’d like to witness what a big city, countless smokes and lots of drugs, liquor, sex, and bearing witness to the eternal under the neon glare of Times Square can do to somebody, to anybody.

From 1966 and his first job in a South Bronx bar at four years old opening cans of beer to shining shoes in bars across the Bronx to serving booze in iconic bars and restaurants all over Manhattan, our Barman spars with the life force of New York City for fifty years. Until last-call when he’s faced with an unforeseen betrayal, and left almost broke, without a plan and nearly a hollow man. That is until he learns to forgive and luckily realize that life without warning has just begun. $2.99 on Kindle.

Eastbound from Flagstaff

Eastbound from Flagstaff

This first installment in an epic trilogy that begins in the 1920s, unique in its purposeful illumination of the human condition and its ideological indifference to God, asks the question: “Why was God silent when I needed him?” Simon’s return to the notion of forgiveness is the catalyst for a new beginning as it reunites Simon to the place he once thought was the impossible dream. The answer for Simon isn’t blowing in the backwinds of his dream chase; rather, it unfolds in the outstretched hand of a villain. $0.99 on Kindle.

The Paths They Walked

The Paths They Walked
Graduating from High School two friends, one male and one female, face life in the late 1960s. While Susan rushes forward moving to New York City, embracing the world eagerly, Dan, indecisive and unsure of himself, stays in their hometown where he sullenly muddles his way forward with no plan. The paths they head down outwardly appear completely divergent, but in reality, there is a strangely vague parallel to them. The difference is within themselves and how they react to the events in their lives. The two separately make their ways through that socially turbulent time, never noticing how each decision they make affects the courses that their lives take in an era of Vietnam, “sex, drugs, rock and roll”’ and “tune in, turn on, drop out”. Neither one seems to be able to recognize the opportunities to change their direction when they see them as they head towards the climactic moments of their lives. $0.99 on Kindle.

Wyandotte Bound

Wyandotte Bound

Wyandotte Bound chronicles a 25-year struggle for power, wealth, passionate love, and a more meaningful way of life, pitting the town’s dominant family against a deranged and violently corrupt rival during the fading years of the Western Frontier.

Bound, like many other strong words, finds its meaning in the perceptions of those it affects. To the Van Sheltons, it is positive and deep-rooted, defining their ties to a vast amount of land abundant in the timber, cattle, and silver that make them the wealthiest and the most powerful family in Wyandotte and influential throughout Nevada.

To J.D. Rohr, who has no money and few prospects, bound is a hopeful force, driving him to Wyandotte, where he assumes the identity of Jesse Bodine in a desperate attempt to live in obscurity, hiding from his reputation as one of the West’s most feared gunfighters.

For Dr. Frederick Albert Carlisle, an aristocratic Boston physician who becomes Jesse’s friend despite their romantic rivalry, bound is a magnetic lure that compels him to abandon his Beacon Hill mansion, his upper-class privileges, and his affluent patients in a quest to give meaning to his life by serving poor westerners sorely in need of his healing knowledge.

As for Honoria Lowell Blaire and Lillian Tomlinson Wellesley, blue-blooded descendants of New England’s oldest and most distinguished families, bound represents the chains that will bind them to “a God-forsaken wilderness” if they choose to live with the men they love instead of clinging to their pampered lives among America’s nobility.

And for the incomparably beautiful Jolene Lloyd, being bound is like virtual imprisonment when she is coerced into saving her family from financial catastrophe by being shackled to a ruthless, emasculated tyrant driven by hatred and bitterness to take control of Wyandotte and force the mighty Van Sheltons to grovel at his feet.

These and the other men and women of Wyandotte, the good and the bad, battle for a quarter of a century to determine their region’s fate during the fading years of the Western Frontier. $6.99 on Kindle.

The Hanging

The Hanging

 

An innocent woman fearing for her life.

Six mismatched lawmen trying to prevent crime.

The beginning of an unusual family…or an end for them all?

After his wife and children were murdered, all that Kris Jensen wanted was to die and join them. Saved by a sacrificed friendship, he travels from one Territory town to another with a tin star on his black duster, restless, intervening when needed and then quickly moving on…until the town of Mimosa asks him to stay as their Marshal. And he says yes, though he doesn’t know why.

Maybe it’s the five misfits who stood by his side when he needed them most, risked their lives to help him save an innocent man from a lynching. Maybe it’s the pretty widow with the eyes like a dove. Maybe he’s starting to care.

And maybe they’re all going to die, for the cattle baron William Cahill isn’t going to forgive Judge Evan Davis for sentencing Cahill’s nephew Carlton to hang. Judge Davis is going to suffer, and so is his widowed daughter-in-law, Holly. The six misfit lawmen? He doesn’t care for the law. He does what he wants. And he wants them all dead.

The new western series filled with friendship and romance starts with The Hanging – if Kris and his friends – his new family – can survive the inevitable shootout. But can they, or are they going to die like his old family did? $0.99 on Kindle.
