Urban Fantasy

The first novel in the Ivory Blaque series is The God Killers, which intruduces readers to, New Orleans native currently residing in Chicago, Ivory Blaque. She is a reformed art thief and current gallery owner, who is also an art recovery agent. She along with her friends and Chicago’s lycan elite, attempt to unravel the importance of two Civil War era pistols she had been hired to recover, as she is pursued by the vampire lord of the city and a mysterious player from her past. It evolves into a race against time as to whether Ivory will survive the inhuman forces she faces.


John’s novella series, Codename: Knight Ranger, is soon to be re-released in a novel length, novella collection. It features US Army Ranger Captain Alexandre Cornelius “Neal” Du Bois, whose unit is ambushed in Afghanistan while on a top secret mission, and he is the sole survivor. With nearly 80 % of his body destroyed, Neal’s unique cellular annomalies make it possible for him to be reborn with a bio-engineered body, by a shadowy government organization, G.E.N.E.S.I.S. (Global Espionage Network of Supernatural Intelligence & Surveillance). His body is claimed ex-parte by G.E.N.E.S.I.S. and forced to embark on covert missions at their behest. All while he copes with the loss of his unit, his NEW body and its superhuman abilities, as his family believes him dead.

Captain Alexandre “Neal” Du Bois returns in a follow up novella which transports him to Berlin. He is forced to work undercover with a former military scientist harboring secrets from his past, while seeking to recover his stolen technology which in the wrong hands could destabilize Germany and most of Western Europe. Neal faces foes with formidable abilities, as mysteries and secrets held over from World War II are brought to light. As Knight Ranger, Neal must push his NEW body and advanced weaponry to the their limits, while preventing an internatioanl coup which would irrevocably undue the political progress made in Germany since the war ended almost 80 years ago.

This will serve as the first volume in a series of short story collections which contain tales of various genres across The Ivoryverse!
