After 20 years as a dramatist and screenwriter, Ric Gibbs made a startling discovery: the myths and heroes that were underlying his fictional characters, were inhabiting his real life as well.
Quick, Where’s My Cape? is a riveting exploration of the unconscious stories that shape our lives, and the steps we can take to draw power from them – to draw sword from stone, as it were – and live the lives we are meant to live.
The last thing Wyatt McHenry wanted was to find himself dragged into a lopsided war, by a do-good American female hell bent on saving a nation! But that’s exactly what happens in this calamitous misadventure.
Part romance, part thumb-in-your-eye rivalry, “McHenry’s Guide to Treasure Hunting” is full-on adventure, both hilarious and deeply felt.
Genre: Adventure, with a strong dose of romance and hilarity.
Based on a true story of a young woman’s extraordinary odyssey through the underworld of sex slavery, and the young man who becomes entangled with her. Ric Gibbs’ first novel explores a hard hitting world that exists right under our noses.
