Lady Dru Drummond
(Dieselpunk Alternative History)
The inspiration for Lady Drusilla Drummond Hurley-Drummond came from the very real Hearst journalist from the 1920s and 1930s, Lady Grace Hay Drummond-Hay. And while Lady Grace led a very exciting life and career, Lady Dru is even more larger-than-life. If you like Indiana Jones, Agent Carter, and Lara Croft, you’ll probably like Lady Dru.
Lady Dru’s adventures take place in a dieselpunk alternative 1950s, where World War II never happened and swing and streamline moderne never went out of fashion.
The Moscow Affair (From the Files of Lady Dru Drummond, Book 1) Stalin has died and Lady Dru is there to cover the story, but love and political intrigue create a much more personal story to cover. Available at Amazon.
The Golden Fleece Affair (From the Files of Lady Dru Drummond, Book 2 ) Lady Dru’s boss wants to live forever. Can she deliver on his request? Available at Amazon.
The Rocheport Saga:
A Post-Apocalyptic Steam-Powered Future
The world as we know it has come to an end. In one catastrophic night, the pandemic sweeps across the globe. For the survivors who wake the next day, they are faced with the horror of millions upon millions of deaths and the realization that they are all survivors, where the game is to fight every day for your supper. And God help those who have to beg, for the apocalypse has come.
The Rocheport Saga begins eight months after the worldwide catastrophe. The series is Bill Arthur’s autobiography. This is his record of his own survival, of his helping others to survive in the post-apocalyptic world, of his attempt to stop humanity’s slide into barbarism, a new Stone Age, and to take the world from dystopia to utopia.
The series is a blend of cozy catastrophe, steampunk, libertarian thought, philosophy, adventure, and family saga, spiced with hope and sadness, triumph and defeat, love and romance, along with the concerns of day to day life in a world that is often not very friendly.
To get the most out of the series, the books should be read in order as the series is chronological and the books build on each other.
