In Safe, Gage answers a call for help from his mentor, Casey. She's been robbed of not only cash and diamonds but priceless and sentimental objects that can never be replaced. Gage is ready to do what he does best: Find Casey's stuff and take it back. But before he can even start to look, he’s accused of being the thief himself.

The very cool thing about SAFE is the story travels between the present day and the 1980's, giving us a chance to explore Gage's past for the first time. As secrets reveal themselves, we begin to understand how the choices Gage made long ago have come back to haunt him in the present day.

Gage (for short - He hates Douglas), described as "the Rock's ugly brother," is challenged in The Statistic to be more physical, more intellectual, and more severe with his judgement, than ever before.
What can Gage do when the 1% steals something from the underprivileged that can never be taken back? It's gone forever and can never be replaced? What can he do when what's taken is a human life?

A psychological drama of cat and mouse, A Ladder to the Sky shows how easy it is to achieve the world if you are prepared to sacrifice your soul. If you look hard enough, you can find stories pretty much anywhere. They don't even have to be your own. Or so would-be writer Maurice Swift decides very early on in his career. A chance encounter in a Berlin hotel with celebrated novelist Erich Ackermann gives him an opportunity to ingratiate himself with someone more powerful than him. For Erich is lonely, and he has a story to tell. Whether or not he should do so is another matter entirely. Once Maurice has made his name, he sets off in pursuit of other people's stories. He doesn't care where he finds them - or to whom they belong - as long as they help him rise to the top. Stories will make him famous but they will also make him beg, borrow and steal. They may even make him do worse.
