Every week, I'll be publishing one chapter from my alternate history novel, The Other Side of Hope. The full novel is currently available for sale on Amazon (

1,300 years ago, Charles Martel failed to stop the Muslim invasion of Europe and history was changed forever. In the modern day, the world remains divided. The wealthy Muslim East and the poverty-stricken Christian West are constantly at odds. A single spark is all it takes to ignite fresh conflict and the cycle seems never-ending.

Ethan Lewis is a proud young Christian living in Tioga, the poorest district of the developing nation Lachlond. Hamid Damir is an ambitious Muslim businessman from Istanbul, the financial center of the world. Everything changes for both young men when the Brotherhood of the Sword, a Christian terrorist organization, launches a devastating attack on Istanbul. As the wrath of Turkey descends on Lachlond, Hamid and Ethan are pulled into a war that sets them on a collision course with the other side and may cost them everything. Will they find hope for a brighter future or be lost in the despair of intractable conflict?
