Walking to Babylon is a dark, gritty tale of two transplanted New Jersey boys who grow up together in the desert city of Las Vegas, busting balls for the old man. Sammy Soriano tells us the story as he walks away from a burning car where the body of his lifelong pal, Tommy Two-Guns Viglierchio had been left, along with those of three Mexican nationals that had tried to muscle in on the action. Viglierchio has been losing his battle with cancer for some time and Soriano knew it. There was nothing that he could do to help his friend other than be there for him.




A Word from the Author

Author Christopher Davis picture

Walking to Babylon first appeared in the British Multiple Myeloma Charity Anthology, Paladins, as the short story—Low and Outside.
Sammy Soriano tells his story over a couple of beers at a farm team baseball game in Las Vegas, where the story takes place.
His lifelong pal—Tommy Two-Guns Viglierchio—had cancer and he knew it. There just wasn’t anything that he could do other than be there for him. The story drew its name from a lousy pitch that you just had to stand and watch go by.
While waiting for the anthology to print, I decided that Soriano had more of a story to tell than 7700 words could and Walking to Babylon came to be, finding a home with Solstice Publishing. In the novel version we get to look a little deeper into the lives of those riding roughshod over the Las Vegas underbelly.
If you enjoy bright lights and the casino nightlife, why not take a walk with Sammy in this short novel length story of dope and crime and shallow graves in the desert?

Before there was D-Day…

For over two years, she’s watched him.
Now he’s on her doorstep.
This is life in the Resistance.

In Normandy in 1943, Victoire leads a band of the Resistance. When Leal, the man she’s had watched for over two years, arrives at her doorstep, she’ll have to face new challenges in war and in love.

Robberies, a kidnapping and clandestine night adventures were not at all what Victoire planned for her life. And she most certainly never planned to be betrayed. But war— and love— are unpredictable. Joined by her friend Rainier who is mistrusted by Leal, the mysterious Voleta, and Father Pierre, Victoire and Leal must struggle for survival, the grounds of France, and the material of their souls.

When Leal unearths a twenty-five-year-old secret, with Victoire at the center, her whole life is shaken. As the Allies approach, the past, present and future hang in the balance. Can anyone be trusted when the world spins upside down?




A Word from the Author

Megan Easley-Walsh, Author PhotoIn my writing, I aim to bring light and hope into the darkness. FLIGHT BEFORE DAWN is set in the midst of WWII, when peace was hoped for, but not yet certain. Having visited the beaches of Normandy, I wanted to infuse life into the past again, so that those who strove for freedom would be remembered. The story centers around the role of the French Resistance in the build-up to D-Day and the mystery that Victoire, a female Resistance leader, becomes a part of. She is used to concealing secrets, but has no idea that for decades a secret has been kept about her. The Resistance has watched Leal for over two years. When he arrives on Victoire’s doorstep, her place in the war will become more complicated. Now she has to contend with secrets and with love. War demands more than she could have imagined, but peace and light looms on the horizon and will dawn again.

Suddenly, at the end of the twenty-first century, the world changes. The tycoons rule and name themselves kings. The times are rife with extravagance and decadence, extreme power and richness. The world is one big party. And there is chaos!
No one seems to wonder how this all came to be. No one seems to wonder what is actually happening. No one seems to care about anything anymore. Except for some odd outsiders. One of them is Oscar Man, the illegitimate son of tycoon Otto Man. Once he was a prince; then he became a pariah, a jester, with nothing to lose for himself and so much to win for the world…
In these turbulent times, the Second Renaissance, strange creatures come into power and try to subject every single human being to their will. They make the poor jester Oscar Man dance. But ultimately Oscar will manage to solve the biggest problems the world has ever faced!




A Word from the Author

author-koos-verkaik-pictureThe Dance of the Jester brought me from The Netherlands to the USA: Mr. Bill Thompson (the editor of Stephen King and John Grisham) invited me to discuss the book. On a scorching hot day, we found ourselves in his office in the Empire State Building in New York and together we revised and polished the manuscript and made changes in the plot.
The book is published in The Netherlands (De Dans van de Nar) and now in the USA.
I call it my most intellectual book.
