The Third RevolutionThe Third Revolution follows popular, plain-talking Montana Governor Benjamin Kane as he walks a harrowing tightrope between his conscience and the law. When Washington attempts to federalize major state functions, a group of young, reactionary lawmakers get elected to the state government and do political battle with the overreaching federal administration. Ben and his close-knit group of political cohorts risk all as they attempt to rein in the radical legislature, hold the federal government at bay, and maintain the sovereignty of their state.
Governor Kane is forced to choose between the country he loves ... and his commitment to the founding principles of the country he loves.

Little Birdies!A young scientist successfully implants a human intelligence gene into six African Grey parrots. His series of fruitful experiments is brought to an early end when sensationalized media coverage and political opposition threaten his university?s funding.

Mandy Grant, the breeder?s 19-year-old niece, is spending the summer at her uncle?s aviary, helping him care for his already sizable parrot flock. She?s thrilled by the addition of the amusing Greys and quickly bonds with the new arrivals. But when the transgenic birds breed and their mutant, eagle-sized offspring escape, Mandy?s quiet vacation turns into a headline-grabbing chase through the forests of New York?s Hudson River Valley ? in a dogged effort to rescue her Little Birdies!

The Cenacle Scroll
Jennifer Goodwyn, a Cornell University graduate student, inadvertently returns home to sleepy Ithaca, N.Y. from an archaeological dig at the Cenacle?the purported site of the Last Supper?with an ancient bone box. The ossuary is found to contain several pieces of early first century stoneware, and a mysterious, tiny scroll. When the Aramaic glyphs on the slip of crumbling papyrus are translated, they identify the humble dinner setting as the one used by a rabblerousing Nazarene rabbi at his Seder meal, on the evening he?d been arrested by the Romans.

One ill-considered impulse?asking a local parish priest to say Mass with the ceremonial Seder cup?sweeps Jennifer away to churches, cathedrals, sports stadiums, and to a powerful Cardinal's basilica to celebrate Mass with the vessel and to exhibit it before ever-growing crowds of believers.

But soon, all hell breaks loose. While the State Department is aggressively seeking its return to Israel, a nationwide political movement starts rising up around the relic. And Jennifer soon discovers that the storied artifact is causing sickness and even death among those who remain too long in its presence. In an effort to stem the political mayhem and insure the safety of the faithful, Jennifer hits the road, trying to stay one step ahead of the feds until she can find a way to quell the growing public chaos unleashed by the revelations of The Cenacle Scroll.

Wildlife biologist Jackie Bannon may have found just the job to jump-start her stalled career. A potential client with seemingly bottomless pockets and plans for an unorthodox business venture has invited her to his private Caribbean island to discuss her coming on board.

At first glance, the place seems a textbook tropical paradise: glistening white sand beaches, lush highland forests, every inch teeming with exotic flowers and wildlife. But a closer look reveals widespread abnormal behavior among the native animal species; behavior that Jackie recognized as deeply problematic.

Despite her misgivings, she wasn't inclined to turn down a high-paying job on a luxurious private island, especially one that could remake her career, and she relished the independence she would be allowed. But with that independence would come responsibility, and she could already see that there was much more to this island than met the eye...
