The Redwood Revenger (Book One)
In 2043, Olivia Ermine survives The Great Warming safe in Cascadia, yet a maniacal woolen devil would see her dead. Her blood holds the key to the VanDirks Corporation’s domination of the planet, and they will stop at nothing to get it! Can she beat the rising tide? A darkly comedic, genre-bending journey through solarpunk sci-fi and science fantasy awaits...

Things are Grrreeat! The Great Warming has proceeded apace, Florida is a soggy nub aslither in pythons. The Great Erasure’s come and gone, the black mirror shattered and the Great Autarchy’s Regime with it. The murder2.0 networked smart-toaster surveillance state’s kaput, so are financial markets, digital records, and killer robots. Viva the Quantum Era! The Great Balkanization continues, the West Coast seceded. It calls itself the Cascadian Federation, a military and vertical farming empire powered by the sun. The border’s secure out to the old Highway 15 DMZ, where Cascadia ends and Montanastan begins, home to militias, dust, famines, mass crucifixions, denominational nut-jobbery, and the ravages of paleomegavirus.

Olivia's left her chaotic globetrotting life behind and returned to her ancestral family home in Redwood, a charming Cascadian university town, a safe oasis in a turbulent world. Yet, the transition’s had a few quirks…disturbing dreams and now visions of a scruffy, saucer-eyed rogue-AI with a penchant for levitation and force fields. To make matters worse, she’s stalked by a murderous, straight razor wielding, dandified sock monkey. Meanwhile, VanDirks, a planetary fast-food mega-corp founded in the 1600s, in the slave trade, is after her famous uncle’s artistic legacy and just maybe her uncle too. In the haze of thunderbud and fog, through time and tide, between land and sea, the earth and the stars, an ancient mystery seeks its revenge.

NOTE: The Redwood Revenger is the first book in the trilogy. Red Bush (The Redwood Revenger, Book Two) is also available. Red Root (The Redwood Revenger, Book Three) is coming in later 2019.

Approx. 323 pages (97,000 words) in length.

Red Bush (The Redwood Revenger, Book Two)
Olivia Ermine’s legacy is vengeance. Will she take up the burden of the galaxy? When they come for her, heads will roll. The Redwood Revenger trilogy continues with more sex, drugs, (yes) pirates, Sasquatch, rogue-AI, and solarpunk!

Olivia discovers her incandescently dark birthright and that of the VanDirks Corporation, while her relationship with Basho grows more heated. Meanwhile, Master Thespian Byron Rosebeetle enjoys the pleasures to be had in and out of the barn with a swazzle, yet the red barn hides a terrible secret not of this earth, which may possess them all, starting with his little sister, Miles. Trudy Yamaguchi reckons with the Cascadian Mars Project, cricket-flour, an eager EMP, and overly frank protocol-llamas (the furry kind). Meanwhile, the Monkey, everyone’s favorite wee woolen murder-machine, dons a neck-ruff and takes to the stage…for The Red Wood Revenger must go on before the Lords Arboreal return to Cascadia to settle a bloody old score.

Approx. 334 pages (100,391 words) in length.

Red Root (The Redwood Revenger, Book Three)
Coming soon (later in 2019)

The Redwood Revenger trilogy’s thrilling conclusion, with more sex, drugs, Sasquatch, and solarpunk!

Redwood grows far more dangerous for Olivia Ermine and her crew in the aftermath of the Halloween night carnage. Will the cycle of vengeance end when the fire’s out, or when there’s nothing left to burn? Threats terrestrial and extraterrestrial are coming to a head in Cascadia and on the Moon.

It’s one minute to midnight, Fangoso Ltd. is after her, and Olivia must get to the heart of the matter before it’s too late, and she’s got girl trouble. The Labors of Restoration continue with the hunt for the elusive, electric buffelvel. Meanwhile, Uncle Ernie is in peril, way over his head, and so is the Earth. Strange bedfellows make for strange alliances that can change everything! Byron Rosebeetle comes to terms with his true nature. Trudy Yamaguchi contends with museum quality puppets, her parents’ secrets, and Byron. The Darning Prince Fancy, down by a limb, remains up on viciousness, and his dandy quest may come to both a sartorial and digital climax at the Meadows Museum of Natural History. The VanDirks Corporation and their confederates will go for broke while Redwood burns. Pig, finally unfettered, goes surfing, and calls home for the first time in 363 years. Redwood’s First Cascadian community prepares for the end of all things, and a new beginning.
