Welcome! What drives some people to take extraordinary actions for fairness for others, often at risk to themselves and their families? 

  • In Embers of Tent City, emboldened by President Obama's inauguration, an African American WWII veteran and former leader of a voting rights struggle decides to shelter families evicted in the 2008 financial crash and mortgage crisis just as he sheltered their parents and grandparents evicted for trying to vote... but he enrages the retired Irish American sheriff who almost killed him and decides to finish the job. But the sheriff's granddaughter, also evicted and hell-bent on getting to the first meeting of the Tea Party on Feb. 16 2009 interrupts their battle to the death -- and an unexpected reconciliation and very American rebellion breaks out.

  • In Veils of Justice, a young Saudi is accused of violence against an American man... can he get a fair trial in post-9/11 New York City? Guilty or not, his fate depends on three women - his Jewish defense lawyer, a prosecutor determined to force a plea deal or convict, and his accuser's wife.

  • In Sam's Rabble, Captain Shays leads a rebellion of Revolutionary War veterans, forcing Sam Adams to send out the army of the nation of Massachusetts to shoot him and his insurgents, and terrifying the 13 new American nations into uniting under one constitution... the story of a 1787 rebellion that today's gun rights advocates, private militias and even Timothy McVeigh on the day he bombed a government building in Oklahoma use to justify armed rebellion against the federal government.
