Titles I’ve Contributed To
GEE (JD Series #1) by Antonio Tripodi
When John Daniels left for the library he expected it to be just another quiet day hunting through journals and periodicals. Then a mysterious package arrived with an impossible device inside, and John’s peaceful world vanished with the death screams of a murdered woman echoing through the library. Forced to confront the pain of his past, John had little choice but to accept an unusual mission.
Sought (JD Series #2) by Antonio Tripodi
Now that John Daniels has Sarah Parrish safely by his side, their first order of business becomes rescuing the kidnapped reporter, Ben Briggs – the man who first identified John as the creator of the website that sent the whole world into chaos only a week earlier. Thanks to that very website, the still-skeptical police and volunteer searchers are also being kept apprised of Briggs’ location, forcing the criminals that have him to keep him moving from one place to another.
Shadows Lurk (JD Series #3) by Antonio Tripodi
John Daniels is distraught over the loss of the GEE. It was clearly stolen, but who could have taken it? Why? And most importantly, how? Convinced it is his fault in more ways than one, the last thing he wants to deal with is meeting Lieutenant Kiel Samuels’ newly-rescued girlfriend, Alison. Explaining that he is JD—yes, that JD—and answering questions about the mission he’s undertaken will be a complete waste of time—especially since explaining is so much harder to do without the GEE. As the repercussions of his loss begin to appear in a fresh media storm, his despair grows.
New Athens 3613 AD
One night In-Shar Bedrosen got drunk and wrote a story about the girl he loved in his youth, which wouldn’t be a big deal if he were a member of the Bureaucrat Caste, but as a member of the intentionally illiterate Worker Caste, there will be consequences if people find out – and they always find out. When he’s brought before Governor Hadraar, it’s clear the man has something specific in mind for this creative dissident.
