Welcome to the home of LSR Books!

I’m grateful you are here. This page is a large step toward the realization of my lifelong goal to become a published author. That goal grows nearer by the day!

Here you’ll find several creative outlets I enjoy; writing, drawing, music, books, and the occasional rant. I have several stories outlined and at various stages of completion. I also post a ‘Sketch of the Day’ when I can sit down to draw, and some glimpses into my favorite musical artists.

Below is a list of stories in progress that you’ll find on this site. If you’d like to read more about them, click on the image or the cover withing the heading to go to that page.


Debut Novel – Code Name: Augustine

My first book is planned to release in late spring/early summer of 2020, titled Code Name: Augustine. It’s a Revolutionary War-era historical-fiction adventure based on the true story of Sergeant Major John Champe and his attempt to capture the traitor Benedict Arnold.

Currier and Ives publication of the escape of Sergeant Champe at the request of George Washington to retake Benedict Arnold from New York.

The idea first came to me when I read Washington’s Secret Six by Brian Kilmeade. In it, he mentioned a plot hatched by George Washington for a soldier to defect and get close to Arnold so he could capture him and return him for trial. I was fascinated with it, and over the last few years, I’ve been researching and writing on it. This book is a labor of love and i cannot wait to share it with you.

Due in late Spring/early Summer 2020!

“What do you think would be my fate if my misguided countrymen were to take me prisoner?”
—Benedict Arnold, 1781

Reportedly asked to a captured captain from the Colonial Army, as quoted in The Picturesque Hudson (1915) by Clifton Johnson; the captain is said to have replied, “They would cut off the leg that was wounded at Saratoga and bury it with the honors of war, and the rest of you they would hang on a gibbet.”
