A Woman. Her Talent. Her Revenge.
Julia is odd. Julia is brilliant and confident. And Julia is determined to become the hottest fashion designer in the industry.
But Julia is a threat. When corporate greed destroyed her father, Julia decided to get even; she would make the man responsible pay for his crimes. But she was poor and living on her own. Her only weapon was her strength, her belief in herself and her ability to design clothes that fascinated and bewildered the fashion world.
Julia’s success became an obsession to a man who would stop at nothing to acquire her line of women’s wear and save his failing company.
Including murder. He's done it before.
What if you had the power to deliver justice, to punish evil men, to right wrongs, and to save innocent lives?
The family of young Mason Banks had been hurt, betrayed, cheated, and his father murdered. He felt helpless until he was recruited by a mysterious man whose organization gave him the opportunity to use his skills—his mind and proficiency with a rifle—to deliver the justice the legal system couldn’t. And not only to his father’s killer.
But when Mason questions the organization’s true motives, the hunter becomes the hunted.
Human Trafficking and Greed
Jason and Craig Patterson are young philanthropists, brothers who inherited a large family-owned corporation from their father. But the new CEO, Steve Jaggers, is a greedy and selfish opportunist who wants to strip it away and gain personal control of over $120 million in share value.
To accomplish that goal, Jaggers enlists a Venezuelan man with a murky history and questionable motives. Soon, Jagger’s partner starts to suck him deeper into a far more sinister web of international intrigue, a web that involves extortion, financial manipulation, and the sex trafficking of children. When they murder Craig Patterson, Jason suspects Jaggers is responsible and pledges to prove it and avenge his brother’s death.
Jason and Craig were two of a four-member brotherhood, devoted friends since childhood. Now, only J.L. White, a Biloxi, Mississippi, detective, and Jason remain alive to unravel the conspiracy and bring Jaggers and his South American accomplices to justice.
But Jason uncovers a plot far more complex and deadly than he ever could have imagined. And the stakes become far higher.
The Robbins are determined to get their money back—and get even.
When an arrogant and selfish 26-year old, Ken Paulson, inherited a large national jewelry store chain, he probably shouldn’t have fired 72-year old Wayne Robbins, a brilliant engineer who helped Ken’s father build the company. And he certainly should not have stolen Robbins’ retirement funds, patents, and royalties.
But, he did.
To achieve their goal, Wayne develops a brilliant plan. Join these sweet retired seniors as they travel the country from RV park to RV park in their motor coach and execute their strategy. They have to overcome unexpected challenges, conspiracies, mysteries, crossed loyalties, and, finally, to survive, they must face the people they fear the most, people who can either save or destroy them.

The Dome is dying
Only one element can save it, and there is only one place it can be found.
Two hundred years after the apocalypse that poisoned the atmosphere, the last remaining sanctuary is in danger of dying from lack of oxygen. Desperate measures are taken and Mrr, a time scientist, is returned to 1988 to find the only substance that might save the Dome. But Mrr finds himself in a bewildering new world and makes critical misjudgments that threaten to ruin, not save, the Dome.
In an alternately hilarious and deadly serious set of complex plot twists, turns, and bizarre characters, this wild ride finally explodes in a surprising and satisfying conclusion.
Freriks creates a vivid environment where reality meets science fiction. From the first chapter of the book, I was taken on a literary journey painted with mystery, exploration, humor, and imagination. Bravo to Tim for writing such a great book. Dr. Roger Clapp
Mrr is one of those crazy books that made me laugh hysterically, fear for the characters, and wonder what is coming next. It was a real fast-paced read that kept me glued to the pages. Like his first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, the twists and turns were unexpected and engaging. Can’t wait to read his newest book, Roland. Great job! Amazon customer
I am a huge fan of science fiction and I loved Freriks' first book, Apocalyse Disrupted, so I wanted to try Mrr. I was not disappointed. I was drawn in right from the first page and it didn't let me go. It was certainly a unique and complex story. Great read. I loved the relationship between Mrr and Marge, but even the bad guys were unique and captivating. There were parts where I laughed really hard. And the ending was an incredible ride. Another great book by Tim Freriks. Can't wait for the next one. Lauren Rowell.

Winner of two major literary awards.
This story of high adventure and intrigue follows the life of Roland, a 12-year-old English boy in the year 1800 who witnesses the murder of his father and is entrusted with a critical secret.
It is about Roland’s growth to manhood as he and his unlikely collection of patriots and pirates may be the only ones who could save the young United States from destruction in the War of 1812. Inspired by true events and real characters, Roland: of pirates and patriots, tells a harrowing tale of loyalty, patriotism, piracy, strange friendships, greed, obsession, and betrayal—a forgotten backstory that preserved our freedom in a critical battle.
I read Freriks' first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, and loved it. Roland is a great third novel. The concept of finding a hidden story behind the people and events that ended the War of 1812 is awesome. The story grabbed me right from the start and kept me intrigued until the ending. And, wow, what an ending! Great read.
Roland: Of Pirates and Patriots is a story about patriotism and the greed for gold. It follows the life of Roland who is a child when he witnesses the murder of his father and takes upon himself a plan to use stolen gold to purchase arms for the defense of America. The various characters were well rounded and with the plot twists were woven into a well-written narrative which I enjoyed reading. Recommended.

This is a fascinating novel about the lesser known War of 1812 – a conflict between the young United States and Britain. The book filled a few big gaps in my understanding of that period. The story begins in 1800 with a shipment of gold from London to the New World. The precious cargo is lost and will be hunted in the years to follow, leading the reader down the path of pirate adventures and political intrigues. The author strikes a fine balance between the coming-of-age part concerning Roland, the boy who knows where said gold is hidden, and the depiction of the historical facts. A fun read that should appeal particularly to younger readers.

"Quite simply, Apocalypse Disrupted is a real roller-coaster of a read, a truly fast-paced story with some really unexpected turns along the way. It is the best book I have read in a while." Graham Schofield, Wheatmark, Inc.

Robert Curry is sure to be the next Jack Ryan. Grab your popcorn and lose yourself in the guilty pleasure that is Apocalypse Disrupted." P. McCabe-Remmel, Professor, USF College of English.
Perhaps the scariest book you’ll ever read. This story should chill every one of us to the bone. Is it fact or fiction?

“From my military experience—I was embedded with Afghans for a year—Freriks is spot on with Middle Eastern customs and culture, but more importantly, the viewpoint of radical Islam. I was amazed at the depth and breadth of military intelligence, IT, and Middle Eastern culture. Not to mention how scary the book parallels today's world. Great story. Couldn't put it down. Kudos.” Captain Phillip Blaine, Navy, MSC, USN
