DragonMan (8 Book Series)
From Book 1: The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.

It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.

Ted Lazaris is an American, Amazon best selling author, with eight bestsellers to his name, so far.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: As, author of the DragonMan Series I think it's time I share with you, my life long struggle with dyslexia. I have always struggled with the problem. In school it was always terribly difficult for me to read what was right in front of me. And reading, writing and spelling still to this day remain difficult for me. One thing I've learned despite having this learning disability, I can accomplish my goals, if I don't, get overwhelmed by the big picture... I just take one step at a time.

In our nations darkest hour, as an author just starting out I was moved, so much so, by the tragedy of 9/11, that I altered the book I was writing and created a superhero, a new superhero, for our times.
DragonMan: The Adventures Of Luke Starr, Hits The Best-Sellers List on Amazon.com, in the US, UK & Germany, and was #1 in HOT NEW RELEASES in the US and Germany.

DragonMan: The Adventures Of Luke Starr

Question: What do C.S. Lewis, L. Frank Baum, J.K. Rawlings, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Stan Lee have in common?
Answer: In some way, shape or form their magical characters find a presence in Ted Lazaris's Dragonman, the Adventures of Luke Starr.

The similarities are irreverent and fun; Dorothy's adventures in Oz (in Baum's outstanding series of books, not the 1939 MGM movie) are no more strange and fantastical than young Luke Starr's trek through the mythical world of Spellville in search of his kidnapped friends. J.R.R. Tolkien's evil orcs and wizards are equally well represented by Lazaris's hag demons and gruelbores, and Luke falls afoul of as many odd creatures in Spellville as Harry Potter does at Hogwarts.

But the journey for Luke is not so much a mission of mercy as one of self-discovery. For despite his humble Midwest origins, Luke is no ordinary teenager. Imbued with superpowers following a ritualistic exchange of blood with a dragon, Luke soon discovers the awesome legacy of his birthright and must learn to accept the fact that he is known in this other world as the Chosen One. Still, in the tradition of Marvel Comics' Stan Lee, creator of modern superheroes like Spider-Man and Silver Surfer, Lazaris's Dragonman is unquestionably human, grappling with his doubts and fears even as he sets off to save Planet Earth from alien beings hell-bent on destruction.
"My book is about good fun and a means of escaping your daily routine," Lazaris tells his readers, and keeps his promise by delivering a fast-paced fantasy in which the epic struggle between good and evil rests squarely on a likable hero's young shoulders.

"You were bound by destiny," a being of light tells Luke, "and will embark on a life of great adventure and mystery, with the power of unlocking the doorway to any world."
And as if that weren't enough, Lazaris offers up an eye-popping array of intertwined subplots linking Luke's fantasy world to his real one, wherein unsolved murders, a mysterious psychic and an ominous stranger keep the action rolling until the satisfyingly climactic conclusion.

The Color Purple Collection (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, this novel about a resilient and courageous woman has become a Broadway show and a cultural phenomenon.

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick


Celie has grown up poor in rural Georgia, despised by the society around her and abused by her own family. She strives to protect her sister, Nettie, from a similar fate, and while Nettie escapes to a new life as a missionary in Africa, Celie is left behind without her best friend and confidante, married off to an older suitor, and sentenced to a life alone with a harsh and brutal husband.
 
In an attempt to transcend a life that often seems too much to bear, Celie begins writing letters directly to God. The letters, spanning twenty years, record a journey of self-discovery and empowerment guided by the light of a few strong women. She meets Shug Avery, her husband’s mistress and a jazz singer with a zest for life, and her stepson’s wife, Sophia, who challenges her to fight for independence. And though the many letters from Celie’s sister are hidden by her husband, Nettie’s unwavering support will prove to be the most breathtaking of all.
 
The Color Purple has sold more than five million copies, inspired an Academy Award–nominated film starring Oprah Winfrey and directed by Steven Spielberg, and been adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical. Lauded as a literary masterpiece, this is the groundbreaking novel that placed Walker “in the company of Faulkner” (The Nation), and remains a wrenching—yet intensely uplifting—experience for new generations of readers.

This ebook features a new introduction written by the author on the twenty-fifth anniversary of publication, and an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

The Color Purple is the 1st book in the Color Purple Collection, which also includes The Temple of My Familiar and Possessing the Secret of Joy.

The Herbie Kruger Novels (5 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A widow’s plea sucks a spy into the web of a decades-old plot against the Third Reich

Though she approaches the guard at the Tower of London like any other tourist, Frau Fenderman’s question does not concern the crown jewels. She wants to know where her husband, a Nazi spy captured in 1941, was executed and buried. The inquiry is passed on to Big Herbie Kruger, an aging spy who is smart enough to know that, three decades after war’s end, the darkest secrets are yet to be told.
 
A massive man whose heavy features obscure a nimble intelligence, Kruger loves drink, Mahler, and espionage. Digging into Fenderman’s story, he uncovers a staggering plot against the life of one of Hitler’s right-hand men—a scheme whose failure nearly lost England the war. As he uncovers more about this forgotten operation, Kruger finds that the oldest secrets are sometimes the most lethal.
