The one with the rifle appears to be the leader. “You folks look well dressed; this will be a good week. Don’t any of you men shoot anyone. You know why we want the girls whole. We may have to use some fire to get that big guy to tell us where he hides his gold, but we want him alive to talk.” Jake starts to step forward, and the brute king shouts at him. “Don’t move unless I tell you to, or we’ll blast your legs, you won’t need them again anyway. You girls come from behind him. Nice. After me and the men are done with you maybe we’ll give you to the boy. Walk up to me nice and slow, I want to enjoy this.” Jane and I don’t need to look at each other; there is no way we can delay until backup arrives. I hope Bill can get one for us, he may not know Jane, but he knows what I’m about to do. We walk forward slowly. “Leave my sister alone,” I say drawing his attention “I’m the one you want.”
In the stories I write the theme is the hero. That theme is usually concerned with individuals breaking free. While some characters may remain persistent, it is the theme that carries through to the finish. The ends of some lovable characters may be in as much doubt as your own future.

Hacker School, followed by the cyberhug.me trilogy of:
Escape With Sparrow Swift:
A separate ePulp adventure series. Sparrow Swift is fiction; people, places, times, events -- It's a coincidence these expat adventures seem familiar and you want to act now while you still have time.
Have Passports - Will Travel
Twice a month a new Sparrow Swift ePulp is sent to the publishers. You may need to read one, you will want to read more. After five ePulps a Sparrow Swift print anthology is released as a completed PT novel told in vignettes. The first print book is International Intrigue.
