Decades after ABBA, the iconic Swedish pop group, hit the airwaves and changed the music culture, a young boy discovers them and makes it his mission to get the group together again for a live performance. Against all the odds, he runs away from his troubled home in America, makes it to Sweden and finds Agnetha Fältskog. With thousands of ABBA fans cheering him, he tackles the real job - convincing the group to do a live performance for the entire world, a formidable task, if not even an impossible one considering it hasn't happened up until then. A truly inspiring story about dreams and never compromising them.

"Written in elegant prose, it is not only about the ills of humanity, but also about hope and optimism...Overall, it is a good thriller..." Alex Markman, Author

The only book that gripped my attention in years, thank you for sharing.” 

“We (my company) are too sponsoring Christel House which is a World Wide organization for orphans to get schooling and high level education so they don’t end up on the street or being trafficked. I did this inspired by your book, so thank you for that and keep up the good work of getting word around.” 

Real Laplaine


A powerful solar flare passes through a quantum anomally before sweeping over Los Angeles late one night. A lady wakes up to find her dead cat sitting in her kitchen the next morning; while another man finds a part of his favorite car that was scrapped years before now sitting in his garage; a bizarre string of paranormal appearances which has everyone baffled, including a graveyard attendant who finds an empty crypt. Police are called in, assuming gravediggers have stolen her remains, but what no one realizes at the time is that Marilyn Monroe, just as beautiful as the day she died fifty years earlier, is wandering the streets of LA, confused and disoriented about the world she now finds herself in. When she discovers that she has been given a second chance at life, Marilyn sets out on a dangerous mission to expose the truth about her death. A thriller with an edge, a story that gives dignity to the Hollywood icon.

Like so many others living in poverty in her country, eight-year-old Hann'Sha is sold into prostitution for a few dollars, and finds herself forced into sexual servitude, every day, for years, by human traffickers. When she is twelve, a university student from America shockingly discovers her plight and tries to get police to take action to free her, but corruption runs deep in the weave of the system. Faced with either leaving the young girl, or doing something about it, he decides to take matters into his own hands and what ensues is a story that shows the courage of one man, and the depthless hope of one young girl, as they take on the perverse underworld of human trafficking. A story that both spotlights the horror of modren-day slavery, and the dignity and courage of those who refuse to accept it.

Women are in control now!

There are no more wars; nuclear weapons are banned; crime is all but gone; global warming is on the mend; but in the mix, men are no longer trusted with power and are treated as a sub-class of society. An existential thriller that shines the spotlight on the ills of a gender-dominated society.
