Discover Worlds of Adventure
After a decade of storms, disease, drought, and riots, the US conquers its troubles by militarizing its government. Old democratic allies in Europe respond uneasily to the change.
Arinna and Michael Prescot are just two of the many former soldiers sent to embassies in the hopes of strengthening faltering US alliances in 2055. But as the US becomes embroiled with new internal terrorism, its agents in Europe are offered intimidation, lies, and deceit rather than explanations. And the price of seeking answers is steep.
As the growing chaos in the US threatens the peace of Europe, choices of loyalty need to be made. Even if all offers of help come with thorns. Global events hinge on a few individuals as war once again threatens Europe, and no one is more unprepared than its potential saviors.
Stories from the War consists of eleven interlinked short stories that are a prelude to the military dark fantasy trilogy Friends of my Enemy.

How do you remove a war hero from power?
Known as the Lady Grey, her leadership won the war that ravaged Europe. But now in 2068 and three years into the official peace, the alliance she’s maintained with the seven ministers who rule Europe falters under the lack of an external threat. They want back the power she claimed in a bid to protect the continent – an authority they never authorized. With no war, she is no longer needed, even if she safeguards the borders from an enemy that is hiding more than is dead.
But how do you plot the downfall of a popular wartime hero, one who still controls the armed forces? One dent at a time…
Continue the military dystopian series Friends of my Enemy with book 2, After the War!
For the Guard, keeping Europe safe has never been more difficult.
The hunt for information on the FLF endangers lives, including one very dear to Arinna Prescot, the leader of Europe’s military. But as Derrick Eldridge volunteers for a risky mission to infiltrate the enemy, he leaves his best friend alone in confronting the ministers of MOTHER, who secretly manipulate Europe’s government. The same ministers who wish to remove Arinna and will not take a new threat to their power lightly.
By refusing to step aside as the unsanctioned leader of the Guard, Arinna widens the rift between Europe’s military and MOTHER, leaving the Guard scrambling to find enough soldiers to protect the border. Control of Europe hinges on internal plots, but Europe’s powerful are not hatching the only conspiracies. The battlefield is quiet but the fighting has not ceased. And its outcome will determine who rules Europe.
“The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy.” – Nietzsche
Tired of defense, the Guard looks for allies against the two FLF cities, while striking a strategic blow against their adversary – one great enough to force the FLF to discuss peace. If that can be believed.
Even if genuine, the FLF’s peace offer leaves the Guard and Europe’s new Prime Minister on edge. But caution isn’t enough to halt a tragic end to the peace talks when the real motivation behind the FLF’s offer is revealed, and it manages to strike deep into the heart of the Guard. Reeling from the painful loss of one of their own in the aftermath, the leaders of Europe’s armed forces struggle to overcome new vulnerabilities that jeopardize already risky plans to decisively end the war at last.
The Lady Grey and Captain Vries have always joked that Europe needs both of them in order to survive the war. What happens when the only choice is to face the FLF alone?
