These are currently all of the books that I have published. Chances are slim that I will post too much information about upcoming books, but I might discuss tidbits.
I would like to take this opportunity to offer some insight about the Soul Mates series. Most people probably are aware of the idea behind soulmates; people that are an ideal match. Instead of the 'traditional' connotations attached to the word itself, I started to apply them to an idea; Soul Mates. Certain aspects of every relationship through recorded history, touch upon at least one of those ideas. I decided to showcase a few of those ideas in each book/story, and perhaps in reading, dear reader, you learn a bit about yourself, and others.
You are, of course, free to like or dislike anything I have published, I respect your opinion. However, please remember, it is your opinion. If you wish to share your opinion though, feel free to leave a review anywhere my content is published.
I believe that what you are doing and going to do, is more important than what you have done, but that does not mean you cannot atone, or otherwise suffer consequences, for the past, nor learn from it.

DriveThruFiction/DriveThruRPG offer prints (physical books in hardback and paperback, B & W, and full color), and a PDF format, so if you prefer a physical book, please visit the DriveThruFiction/DriveThruRPG links to purchase hardback and/or paperback versions.

For those that might be curious, my editor is Gloria Mills. She has been doing all of my proofreading since I started writing my first book. She does a great job, and offers tremendous support, even if she likes to harp on me about getting back to writing.
Hi, I'm Gloria - A.J.'s editor and 'Mom'. I can often be found in the vicinity of thunderrockradio dot com, a little grassroots hobby that has kept me out of the pool hall since 2003. A.J. has been with me for most of that ride and has certainly been the longest standing DJ at the station, but he is also my friend. Several years ago he was toying with the idea of writing fiction, and I encouraged him (offering to be his editor) and I'm extremely proud of what he has accomplished so far. Do check out the books in his Soul Mates series, you won't be disappointed!
