WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
"Bitten is an extremely well-balanced and engaging novel. It contains mystery, suspense, horror, romance, and best of all - a creative, genre-bending twist on werewolf mythology. The story is quick-paced and dark without being too heavy or overdramatic. The protagonist is a strong and courageous FBI agent who is able to assert herself without casting aside her femininity. She reminds me of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum...If a sequel follows, I will definitely read it.”
"Author Dan O'Brien Left His Mark With BITTEN. For some there will always be a fascination with discovering answers...I've now read three books by O'Brien but BITTEN is by far my favorite. It not only showcases his literary skills but leaves the reader wanting more. What else could an avid reader ask for?”
A predator stalks a cold northern Minnesotan town. There is talk of wolves walking on two legs and attacking people in the deep woods. Lauren Westlake, resourceful and determined FBI Agent, has found a connection between the strange murders in the north and a case file almost a hundred years old. Traveling to the cold north, she begins an investigation that spirals deep into the darkness of mythology and nightmares. Filled with creatures of the night and an ancient romance, the revelation of who hunts beneath the moon is more grisly than anyone could imagine.

The debut bestseller that has sold more than 300,000 Kindle and paperback versions!
Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.
Ancient human remains—all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre—cover the cavern floor, along with a number of brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare crystals are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.
Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years prior to the first known human exploration? If so how? And why?
There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.
At their destination they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.
As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.
Something inexplicable is happening in this edge-of-your–seat supernatural thriller, which starts with suspense, sneaks in a few chills, moves on to thrills, and ends in a melee of outright screaming horror. A few highlights:
The man's daughter isn't possessed. But Eddie can't tell him that.
The people aren't actually missing. They're hiding. But Eddie can't tell the cops that.
And Eddie’s got a personal issue: He’s forced to work with someone from his past--an extremely dangerous psychic he never wants to see again.
He's in way over his head. But he sure, can't tell that to the deep-cover team of federal agents that pepper the landscape.
This paranormal-mystery-horror-thriller’s got elements of all the great zombie movies, plus the X-Files, and even Men in Black, except that there are no aliens here—and it's definitely not a comedy! This is a deadly serious every-man-for-himself horror spooker. Oh, and by the way, there are no zombies as well as no aliens—the explanation is even more strange. And decidedly more chilling. Because, believe us, it could happen here!
WHO WILL LIKE IT: horror and zombie fans, lovers of paranormal mysteries and supernatural thrillers, in particular the kind of old-movie fans who love to kick back with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD or even BEVERLY HILLS BODYSNATCHERS. Stephen King and Dean Koontz fans will be in horror heaven!

Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?
Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met in a family business—Amazons Inc.—they know nothing about. If that isn’t bad enough, Elena runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.
Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn’t be told of his Other identity. Now Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

After a lacklustre birthday party, Phoenix finds a strange creature hiding under her sink. Doing what any sensible person would do, she pokes it. And when that little guy wakes up, he rocks her world.
You see, Phoenix isn’t human, the little guy under her sink just told her so. She is actually a Traveller, once a beautiful humanoid who moved through time on multi-coloured wings that filled the sky. So why is she here, sitting on the floor of her tiny apartment with a strange creature named Sid? Where are her wings? And why doesn’t she remember any of this?
Following Sid into time itself, Phoenix embarks on a wild adventure. If the Sirens don’t kill her, meeting a talking Yeti might. And ancient Egypt is amazing when it isn’t so ancient, although she could do without all the snake-men chasing her. But don’t worry, when the stuff really hits the fan, Phoenix isn’t afraid to swing her baseball bat at whatever is in her way. And through all this, the most terrifying man in her home world, a silver-skinned warrior named the Archer, is hunting her down.
They say you can’t get blood from a stone, but maybe you can get wings? Either way, Phoenix sure as hell is going to try.

Bone-chilling fiction inspired by scripture and the private revelations of the saints. Guaranteed to make you rethink the apocalypse.
Eighteen months ago, the Earth survived a comet strike. Famine, economic depression, and soaring crime rates rode in on its tail. While the government scrambles for solutions, Gina Applegate vlogs about college life and current events. God doesn't figure large in her life. Nonetheless, Gina thinks she's a pretty good person until a mystical event called The Warning gives her a glimpse of hell, shaking her fragile faith. As the world slips deeper into darkness, the gulf between the godly and the godless widens, leaving no middle ground. Everyone must choose a side.
Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged . . . For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their butchery and be stricken with a great fear. ~Saint Hildegard (12th Century)
The story is set in a secular world in a rapid decline. Expect some strong language, sexual situations, and violence.
Comet Dust springs from a Catholic worldview. If Catholic beliefs upset you, this probably isn't a story you would enjoy.
"Rings true because it's backed by so many real prophecies. Scary stuff." --J.Keating
"The arrival of the three days of darkness literally sent chills through me. The demon filled fog was the most terrifying thing I've ever read. Since different saints have warned us this will happen in real life it doubles the scariness. I'm going to get me some holy water." --Elaine Pratt, Random Reader
" . . . well imagined and crafted with compelling characters that readers will easily relate to, characters who will remind readers of their deep and silent yearnings and the questions they ask in the dead of night. There is enough action to keep the reader turning the pages and there are surprising twists in the already engaging plot." --Christian Sia, Readers' Favorite®
"Despite the religious subject matter, it never felt like a sermon. The plot moved quickly. I never got bored." --Traci, Early Reviewer

J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser.
