In October of 1448, Vlad is a month shy of his seventeenth birthday when he leads a cavalry two thousand strong to the wooden walls of Tirgoviste. They are the last obstacle preventing him from reclaiming the throne held by his father. Determined to be his father’s son in every way possible, Vlad finally walks through the open gates where, in due course, he plans to free himself of the Turks and declare himself “Son of the Dragon”—Dracula. At last, he is prince. Dracula presides over Wallachia, a principality caught between two voracious predators: the kingdom of Hungary and the Ottoman, better known as the Turks. Bitter at God and left wondering if He even exists, Dracula faithfully follows his life’s purpose to free Wallachia, battling criminals and factions who attempt to break him with overwhelming force and terror. But as a sultan watches the feud from a distance and gloats, Dracula eventually turns his enemies’ tactics against them, finds love, is taken prisoner, and stands at a crossroads where he is faced with an agonizing choice: renounce his past, or embrace his fate. In this historical novel, a fifteenth-century warlord cursed by his church and torn between his code of ethics and his humanity evolves into a legend who soon proves that he is neither a man nor a prince, but something beyond both.

These three, inter-related stories describe the lives of three generations of the McGowan family and their personal battles to make a living by working on the Boston waterfront. The common thread that runs through them is the challenges presented by the shape-up or pick-up system, a procedure that was archaic and rife with favoritism and was the sole determining factor whether you received a salary that day.

At a young age, Jim McGowan goes to work as a longshoreman not knowing one end of a ship from the other. Fighting alcoholism, bad companions and family hardship, he strives to make a decent living for his family.

Jim's uncle Owen is an immigrant from Ireland in 1920 who finds work on the docks, one of the few jobs available to him. Working alongside veteran longshoremen, he decides to become part of the political establishment in order to improve the working conditions on the docks. Owen's cousin Mike is a seasoned dock worker, content with his life but wanting something better for his children.

The Longshoremen details the working conditions and challenges of working on the Boston waterfront and is based on the real-life experiences of longshoreman, author Jim Lynch.

Steel Shamrocks - The Sons of Annie McKenna

In 1830 Hugh McKenna, a widowed farmer and father of eleven, left his home in Ireland's County Tyrone for economic survival in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Arriving in Quebec on a "timber ship," Hugh and the family walked the twelve hundred miles to a new life in the raucous, burgeoning gateway to the American West. Thus began nearly a hundred years of trial and triumph for Hugh's widowed daughter-in-law Annie, and two of her sons, Bernard and Charles. Through financial struggle, fire, civil war, flood, labor unrest, political corruption and reform, they met their challenges with fortitude and civic devotion. Whether defending the Union from Antietam to Appomattox or helping to build a new industrial and political order, the McKenna men and their remarkable mother are emblematic of the many contributions Irish-Americans have made to a great city and a great nation.

When you are the last of a clan and you see your own history coming to an end you reminisce a lot. You think about the good old days and were they fun, and you ask yourself what happened to all the friends of my youth. Those thoughts key up other thoughts about mom and dad, pets we had and my brother. Soon you see a picture all jumbled and going fast-forward loud, mumbling, quirky, sharp and soft focus and you hear a voice saying write me!, write me!, and write I did. Once I started there was no stopping although aside from my immediate family I had to blend characters for the friends of my youth had gone to the four winds or to their last reward.
The story is about growing up in the late 1930s and early 40s. It tells of their daily activities and how they view the World War and how they coped and how they loved. It follows the main characters through high school, courtship and marriage.
The book takes place in the towns of Valley Stream and Babylon on Long Island in New York and in the fictional community of Tabbert’s Corners in western New York State.
I am not trying to create a following or preach about how good things were in the good old days. I just had this story in me that I felt compelled to write. The characters are true to themselves and stay bonded by a friendship fused over their lifetime.

It is May, 1863. The Battle of Fredericksburg is over; it was a disaster for the Union Army. Johnathan Traver, a Union Army Sergeant, is badly concussed, Esher Coley, his Warrior Companion and the man he loves, is grievously wounded, and their fellow soldier, Luther, who knows the healing ways of plants, has been shot in the face. Their situation is desperate. They must get to Kentucky where Luther’s vast supply of medicinals offer their best chance to heal and be whole again. But how? The Union Army is evacuating and there are no extra wagons or horses. Johnathan makes getting to Kentucky his mission, and after many adventures on the road, he succeeds; they arrive at Luther’s home to his grateful family, who all pitch in to restore their health.

Johnathan and Esher’s dream is to homestead on the Prairie in the Dakota Territory. Johnathan imagines the two of them traveling together, finding their land, and farming it. But that is not Esher’s dream. Yes, he wants to farm with Johnathan, but he also wants children, a wife, and to travel by wagon train. When they leave Luther’s for the Prairie, Johnathan is convinced there is no need for a wagon train, no need for a wife, and as for children, there have to be some orphans there that they will adopt. He has months to change Esher’s mind as they journey north and west. They experience more adventures on the road, but Johnathan is unable to budge Esher from his conviction that it is too dangerous to travel alone. They join a wagon train. They begin the journey of their lives. It soon becomes evident that they are both right—and wrong—as a new test for their love arises from the dust of the wagon trail.

Like all dreams, achieving them require hard work and enduring many bewildering dips and turns. Johnathan and Esher’s dream is like any other: full of passion, confusion, and sometimes tears, but ultimately, their dream is a journey of love.

In a faraway village, a boy intently watches as his grandmother reads his cards. After she tells him his destiny will be forever tied to the failings of taught lessons and that he must overcome corruption and power with a pure heart, Michael suddenly realizes there is a world before him that harbors secrets and that nothing is as it seems. Meanwhile, moments after a young priest finds something in the sky he was never meant to see, he lies dead on the floor of a computer room as hard drives melt and a lone man ensures this is not the time for discovery.

Years later, Father Michael Vaetas is vacillating between his identity as priest and well-heeled academician as he learns the Papal Council for Scientific Investigations has appointed him to the section for astronomical studies. While Vaetas hopes he will finally be freed from the iron grip of the church, he instead is told the Council wants him to find a way to end time. As Vaetas travels through time on a dangerous journey to the truth, age-old religious institutions and faith collide as a negative power seeks to destroy the heritage of man.

In this exciting science fiction tale, loyalties are tested and a power is forced to prove its merit as a priest attempts to fulfill his destiny and all wonder whether the answer is shining among the stars.
