In a universe where eras gone by blend with possible futures, humanity struggles for purpose and truth. These are the chronicles of the family of Earth, a series spanning several decades and multiple worlds. This interplanetary society faces dire challenges, and must learn to work together to survive.

Ruby Descent: (novel in revision) The showdown of all characters in the above works. Set upon the wild and swanky space elevator known as the Ruby lift, during the anniversary party of the water purification company known as Everblue. As the lift begins its descent, the concierge and director of operations, Walter Marlow, finds himself overwhelmed, as usual. So much to do. So many inept people. And the robotic staff is malfunctioning. He’s near to losing his mind.
Two of the most important celebrities in the known universe are along for the descent. They’re carrying a secret that will shake the very foundations of society.
And Walter’s entire world is about to come crashing down.
