Fight or Flight book cover

We live in a time when a trip to the mall or a movie theater could bring you face-to-face with a mass shooting or terrorist attack. Incidents involving mass shootings, muggings, terrorist attacks, home invasions, and other attacks on the general public are no longer the exception. They are on the rise and becoming more violent and deadly.

When it comes to surviving an attack, you are either prepared or unprepared; there is no third option. It's a fact that the first people to take action during any type of attack, usually survive it.

"Fight or Flight" instructs the reader on how to avoid and survive these attacks at home, at work, or on the street. It also teaches the reader how to prepare for, avoid, and survive a violent personal encounter anywhere at any time.​

Weretiger book cover

It's not easy being a weretiger. A life of hunting and killing werewolves is tough enough. When you fall in love with a human, things get complicated.

 Alexander Malkin discovered werewolves were real when they killed his parents. Only the intervention of a weretiger saved Alex from the same fate, but his salvation came with a price. A few months later Alex was shocked and terrified when he morphed into a weretiger for the first time.

 When he was told that weretigers were created to hunt and kill Lycans (werewolves), he was curious. After his first taste of lycan blood, Alex was all in.

 From then on revenge was all about hunting and killing werewolves, and Alex was a natural at it. Then he met Cassandra, and everything changed.

That’s when the werewolves started hunting them both.
