WHAT WE’RE UP TO

All the Goings On

A normal life can be extraordinary.


Avril Bale has a beautiful life with her precious young daughter, a second baby on the way and a caring husband. She has it all, which makes her completely ill-prepared for the tragic loss that completely rocks the foundation of her security, her sense of fairness, and her faith. Each new day, Avril navigates the muddy waters of karma, balance, and belief as she progresses in her suburban pilgrimage towards a path of self-discovery and a new recognition of reality. Slowly, Avril learns to triumph over fear even as she is constantly looking over her shoulder for the next shoe to drop. And through it all, she tirelessly struggles to find a way for hope to fit into life's new equation.


In addition to her internal conflicts and personal guilt, Avril must deal with family and friends who don’t know how to handle her tragedy. Avril’s interactions with those around her are alternately heart wrenching, upsetting, and sometimes perversely comedic. And with each fresh day, she comes closer to recovery and claiming her new normal.


Follow Avril as she tackles each new challenge with perseverance and humor in a world full of tough questions waiting for understanding. Avril’s Phoenix probes why bad things happen to good people. And beyond exploration, Avril begins to find answers. It is an uplifting, emotional voyage of a woman’s navigation through life following a heartbreak thought impossible to overcome.



 

 

  

 


 

THE TERRA OBSCURA CHRONICLES

ABOUT THE TERRA OBSCURA CHRONICLES

 

An adventure set in the early 1900s, the Terra Obscura Chronicles follow Charles Fort, the world's first supernatural investigator, as he hunts for proof of what science refuses to accept - the existence of the paranormal. With an eclectic crew of allies and support, Fort travels this breathtaking world at the pinnacle of the Gilded Age investigating classic paranormal cases in their amazing steampunk airship. As Fort investigates the realm of the unexplainable, he discovers a vast ancient conspiracy spanning the globe that has humanity in its grasp. Failing to stop it will lead the whole world towards unimaginable war. TERRA OBSCURA is the hidden world and Fort won’t rest until its secrets are revealed.

CASEBOOK ONE: A KNOCK IN THE DARK

People are dying in the dark and New York’s highest office wants the truth buried. Only Charles Fort, an ambitious but ridiculed paranormal investigator, is willing to get to the bottom of it. In Casebook One, Fort explores subterranean New York looking for the source of various reports of violent attacks during the construction of NYC's iconic subway system. What he finds in the dark, no one wants to ever see the light. Between the city’s political elite and powerful forces unseen, Charles Fort will test his limits to prove what he knows to be true.

CASEBOOK TWO: FALLING AGAINST GRAVITY


Paranormal investigator and rogue adventurer Charles Fort is obsessed with getting his prototype airship into the sky. As the first test flight fast approaches, Fort is confronted by enemies from his past who remind him of the uncanny origins of his Nimbus airship and what it has cost him. Fort is forced to reconcile his youthful adventures in Aurora, Texas - where he naively investigated an extraterrestrial crash - with the present-day consequences of his blind dedication to the mission. With his life unraveling, Fort must choose between his closest relationships and his goals. His unorthodox team faces mortal threats that span from sabotage to mad science to - ultimately - each other. As the laws of physics are bent and broken, Charles Fort must face his greatest threat to date: his own determination.

"Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus."
