A suicidal former platoon sergeant, sole survivor of a Vietnam War jungle ambush, is haunted by what he perceives as his cowardly past. Debilitated by guilt and mourning the death of his wife, small town newspaper publisher Stan Przewalski lives in a PTSD-fueled world where it is impossible to distinguish reality from fantasy.
Returning from a Vietnam sightseeing tour, his suppressed memories resurface with a vengeance as he deals with a murder and a raging wildfire that threatens to destroy his hometown of Bull River Falls, Colorado. The overly medicated vet meets a magical creature who wears paratrooper boots and rock band tee shirts and commands a subterranean army that believes Stan is the answer to their fight against unscrupulous real estate developers.
While they sabotage cell phone towers and government buildings, these supernatural friends provide an unlikely path to Stan’s redemption.
What could possibly go wrong?

A delicious tale of vengeance gone so wrong it just feels right!
Down on his luck and homeless, Cliff Trask tries to score a cup of pending coffee in an upscale Miami coffee shop. He and a friend are assaulted by a self-entitled hedge-fund manager. They decide to exact an elaborate bit of revenge, and end up with a pile of money and a lot more trouble than they ever imagined possible. The scheme goes off the rails in weird and wondrous ways. Cliff is soon embroiled with crooked cops, drug cartel assassins, and a gaggle of ex-trophy-wives, all working their own agendas. As if that weren’t enough, the whole thing plays out on a Miami based reality TV show where Cliff manages to become the star of this unfolding disaster.
Will Cliff wind up dead at the hands of the determined forces arrayed against him, or will he and his friends marshal their collective street savvy to escape an awful fate at the last possible instant?
A Cup of Pending is a laugh-stoked romp through the Tropics, from South Beach to the boondocks of Tobago and back, with characters and events that would be unlikely in any other locale, but seem perfectly at home in the sun-drenched, sex-obsessed confines of Florida’s Gold Coast.
