Zoram [Kindle Edition] (Historical Fiction & Religious Fiction)
Zoram is based on events described in the first two books of the Book of Mormon, told through the eyes of Zoram, servant first of Laban, then of Laman of the House of Lehi. The riveting story in the Book of Mormon that recounts the journey of Lehi’s caravan in the wilderness, and its challenges, is the setting for the events that affect Zoram as he and his wife suffer the trials of such a journey. Zoram is a person worthy of a personal blessing from Lehi, and yet a person about whom we have very little detail. The story stays true to what is said about Zoram while using his character to create the world of Lehi’s time. Names and personalities are given to people such as Ishmael and his daughters, and carefully researched details draw the reader into the story, presenting what life might have been like on such a trek.
Zoram was orphaned when he was ten and lived precariously in the streets of Jerusalem. A camel train driver, who was very rough with him, picked him up and made him one of his servants. The driver sold Zoram to a kindly merchant who treated Zoram like a son, teaching him bookkeeping and reading. When he was a young man, Zoram inherited the merchant stall of his foster father, but lost his stall when he went into debt to Laban, a wealthy, conniving winebibber, in order to buy jewelry for an Egyptian courtesan.

The Revenant [fiction, paranormal, supernatural, young adult, adventure]
He wears neither cape nor cowl, but Zulu is a superhero, nevertheless.
Raised from the dead as a revenant more than a hundred years ago, Zulu possesses Spiderman’s stealth, Superman’s speed, and Batman’s keen intellect. His only companion is Morgan the Seer, an old man cursed with longevity and the ability to see the future in his dreams. Zulu has spent the last century training with Morgan in order to save the people in his nightmares from certain and violent death. Branded a vigilante by the Media, Zulu must live his life in the shadows, travelling by night or in the city’s underground unless his quest demands otherwise.
Kat is an empath, someone who sees emotions as colourful auras. Relentlessly bullied by her peers, and believing her life amounts to nothing but a huge cosmic mistake, she finds purpose in her abilities when she is recruited to help Zulu and Morgan complete their missions.
Malchus is Morgan’s long dead twin brother. A powerful necromancer, Malchus manages to find a way to return to the living, and he has a score to settle with Morgan. Believing Morgan responsible for his death and out to seek revenge, Malchus begins to raise an army of undead minions and use them to hunt Morgan down. As Malchus closes in on Morgan and his charges, the trio soon realizes the people most in need of saving are themselves.

Caesar and Brutus. Marius and Sulla. Cicero, Antony, Clodius and Augustus. The century before the current era gave us a host of larger-than-life characters hailing from Rome.
Only one was named Great.
In the year 90 B.C.E., chaos and unrest erupts across the Italian peninsula. Rome’s allies have rebelled and taken up arms against the most powerful military on earth. Leading Rome’s legions – and his only son – to the city’s defense, an unproven and unloved commander will taste victory and defeat outside the capital’s gates. The name Pompey had yet to be praised and revered, but fate would soon alter the course of one man’s life.
RISING SUN is the first book in Robert Allen Johnson’s captivating MAGNUS trilogy. Narrated by the last living son of Gnaeus Pompey, RISING SUN sets the stage for the man historians would later name the Roman Alexander.

79 BCE. Gnaeus Pompey, recently returned to Rome in triumph, has almost singlehandedly brought the civil war to a standstill. As the memory of Gaius Marius begins to slowly fade, another war has begun to rage within Rome’s own streets and far to the west.
Hailed as Great by his own loyal soldiers, Pompey’s elders still have their doubts. With his age and Rome’s elite politicians working against him, will he follow the course set for him or continue to carve a path of significance by his own means?
Spanning two continents and the violent sea between them, Triumphator is the second book in Robert Allen Johnson’s awe inspiring MAGNUS trilogy.
Olivia’s best friend is not imaginary. He’s not a ghost, either. And she’s pretty sure he’s not a hallucination. He’s just Mason.
He is, however, invisible.
When Olivia spotted the crying little boy on her front porch at five years old, she had no idea she was the only one who could see him. Twelve years later when new-girl Robin bumps into the both of them and introduces herself to Mason, they are both stunned.
Mason couldn’t be more pleased that someone else can see him. Olivia, on the other hand, isn’t jumping at the chance to welcome Robin into their circle. Jealousy may have something to do with
that, but honest fear that Robin’s presence will put Mason in danger is soon validated when a strange black car shows up outside Olivia’s house.
The race to find out what Robin knows in time to protect Mason from whatever threats are coming becomes Olivia’s only focus.
