The Latest Book in the Hilarious Brooks & Smith Series!
With paranormal activity at an all-time high, Brooks and Smith decide to stop working for others and form their own detective agency. They're not the only ones. The market is saturated, and they struggle to find even a single client.
That changes following a chance encounter with a genie that doesn't grant wishes so much as do whatever the hell it wants. The detectives' reality is completely upended---for better and worse. Brooks and Smith have to set things right, but their attempts at doing so are complicated by a genie-thieving venture capitalist, self-sabotage, and a newer, stupider detective in town.
The Book That Started It All
Detectives Arturo Brooks and Edward Smith hated time travel long before they ever laid eyes on a time machine. Now some jerk has gone and invented one, and the consequences go beyond breaking the timeline. This time machine renders anyone who dares to use it immortal.
Racing against several clocks, Brooks and Smith must team up with a terrified Puritan and a moon-dwelling hipster to stop increasingly bizarre time travel exploits from tearing a hole in reality, before it's too late...or too soon.
This is the first book in the Brooks & Smith series.
Who wants to live forever? No one, it turns out.
Detectives Arturo Brooks and Edward Smith have a problem. Following an ill-advised time travel adventure, Smith is immortal...and he's not happy about it. He lashes out by whistleblowing the existence of vampires on daytime television.
The public fallout is immense. While vampires plot revenge, Brooks, Smith, and their family and friends are targeted by protesters, monster rights activists, and an aesthetics-obsessed billionaire ready to make the men an offer that will change their lives (and afterlives) forever.
This is Book #2 in the Brooks & Smith series.
A Standalone Spinoff!
Godwin Zane (aka. Monochrome) thinks he's a hero. The press don't agree.
When an enormous rift in time and space opened over Manhattan, Zane used his magma powers to melt the machine generating it and save millions of lives. Unfortunately, he's an asshole, so the rift opening over Zane Tower was all the proof Americans needed to blame him.
In order to clear his name and prove himself a hero once and for all, Zane forms a superhero team called the Bedazzlers. The other members of the team are being bribed or blackmailed into service, and they hate him. But they'll have to overcome that if they're going to save a world facing extreme traffic, sea monsters, and a shortage of Hamilton tickets.

If the giant slider at the top of my home page didn't make it clear, my first novel is available for pre-order on Amazon. For some reason, Createspace doesn't allow customers to preorder physical books, so it's ebooks only for now. If you're into physical books, add...
