THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES — Bernie and the Wizards 

Bernie is a young god who fixes broken universes for a living. Unfortunately, the universe he’s supposed to fix is in the middle of a civil war caused by Ashok, a murderous wizard determined to control the lucrative pepper trade.

Bernie’s boss urges him to solve the problem by destroying Ashok and his people, but Bernie wants no part of such a massacre.  Struggling to find another solution, Bernie tries to get Ashok to give up his plans for world domination. But, as Bernie’s attempts at peaceful solutions continue to fail, his boss comes to believe the best solution is to destroy all the people and start over again.

Bernie can’t let that happen.  He has no choice but to destroy Ashok and his followers. Although he hates the idea of destroying life, Bernie prepares to do what is necessary, only to discover the evil wizard’s powers are far more than superstitious nonsense.  The young god is drawn into an epic battle that pits the power of the gods against the forces of magic.  And the lives of every man,woman, and child on the planet hang in the balance.

A PREQUEL  —  Bernie and the Lost Girl 

This novella tells of a time when Bernie was twelve years old, and a young goddess was reported lost.

The gods searched everywhere for her – except the woods.  Readers familiar with Bernie’s world know the gods are terribly afraid to venture anywhere near the dangerous woods.

Bernie was willing to make that search, and, naturally, he sought the help of his two friends, Suzie and Lenny.  So, with no more pre-planning than any other 12-year-olds, they set off on the adventure of their lives.  The only advantages they had were a magic stick and boatloads of courage.  But in the unknown territory full of viscous creatures capable of killing even the gods, would it be enough?

The book was released as an ebook through Amazon in May 2016.  The print book was released in June.


You’ll meet fascinating characters who populate the world of the gods.  Even though they have the power to create or even destroy entire universes, you’ll have no trouble relating to Bernie and his friends as they struggle, and sometimes blunder, through humorous and outlandish adventures as they learn to master their powers and discover the new worlds that surround them.

Like to know who they are?  They’d love to meet you, too…
