How can he balance his earthly paradise with his diabolical calling of the earth's fate? And then there was one... Death Cometh divulges life shattering secrets that move Heaven and Earth as Mallory's true destined charge transforms him, requiring him to take his rightful place. However, his father, Malcolm is not quite ready to relinquish control. The battle lines have been drawn and the most consecrated ritual will allow only one to be Death. Who will survive?

An Epic Tale of Biblical Proportions... 

Join Mallory, once again, as he journeys through the twists and deceit of this family saga.
❤ What inspired you to write your first book, and then how did you get published?


I was laid-off with my two-month-old son in tow. Day in and day out, I was watching meaningless television. One day, I unplugged the television and dared myself to write something better – thus The MPire was created.

I wrote to several publishers before creating my own publishing house (PHE Ink).

Writing is a life-altering journey for you then, I'll bet! Describe your stories in three words.

Disturbed, life-changing, and unique.

❤ What’s the most interesting comment you have ever received about your books?

My readers have been speechless.

❤ What's next for you?

I will be releasing the final installment of The MPireTrinity.
The Family

Mallory Haulm has finally carved his place in the Family Business, but his arched nemesis and eldest brother wants him out. With each plot Marc devises, Mallory manages to dodge the bullets. However, with family members turning their backs and betraying Mallory’s trust, Marc’s last plot might be successful.

The Son of God

Since his return to Heaven, Matthew is not happy. He is hell bent on coming back to Earth and reclaiming rightful possession. He will not let anything stand in the way, not even his identity as “The Second Coming.” In his quest to succeed, will he go as far as starting a little fight called Armageddon?

And The Holy Hell Raiser

Silas Xavier Luxapher – a new comer to the scene but not new to the game. With all the distractions of his Million-Man Campaign, raising his Family and running the Empire, Silas’ eyes are set on a new possession. He does not take “NO” for an answer; HE TAKES IT ALL!
