The Long Guest
The year is 10,000 B.C. All mankind was united in one project: to build a great city with a magnificent tower that reached to the heavens. But the tower fell; God confused their languages, and overnight, their world dissolved into unimaginable chaos.
Family groups, still tied by language, salvage what they can and flee to the countryside to survive. On the way, the family group of Enmer stumbles upon a highborn man, who does not speak their tongue. He lies paraplegic and near death, having survived a fall from the tower.
The matriarch of the family insists they save him; he is a human being, is he not? But he is also hateful, demanding, and useless. But if they don’t save him, who are they? And, if they do, he will leave them forever changed.
This sweeping epic starts at Babel and carries the action across the continent of Asia, even to the ends of the earth.
The Long Guest goes on sale Nov. 2, 2020. You can pre-order it on Amazon or Bookshop.
The Strange Land
As his tribe approaches the Land Bridge, thirteen-year-old Ikash wishes to find a better life than the one he has with his mother, three brothers, and abusive father. He longs to become a shaman like his adored older cousin Ki-Ki, who regularly walks in the spirit world. But when Ki-Ki consents to teach him, Ikash is not prepared for what he will find there.
The Strange Land is a sequel to the The Long Guest but can also be read as a stand-alone. It will come out in early 2021.
