The Brave Maiden

The Brave Maiden is the story of a young woman who – in a quest for revenge – prevails against greed, treachery and brutality in medieval England. She is destined to bring peace and justice to the country; but first, she must discover her inner strength and nurture the qualities required of a leader.

Waiting for the Light to Change

Waiting for the Light to Change is bursting with relevant poems for today’s lover of poetry. By employing the language of poetry, Ruescher is able to open a dialog that seeks to engage, not divide, making this book suited to poetry lovers from all walks of life.

Free Fire Zone

Follow American soldier Rod Teigler as he adventures through war, the old west, jungles and beyond. Teigler’s war experiences leave him with a severe personality disorder. Fear or anger turn the unlikely hero into something enemies fear and a handful of troubled souls adore.
