The Framerunners is an ongoing saga about the adventures of four unlikely companions as they travel through space and time, protecting the True, The Good, and the Beautiful from the forces of evil and destruction. The Framerunners represent an ancient Order (the Fratrum Simulacrorum) with a dark secret that they have kept safe for millenia; now, four new adventurers take up their quest to seek out and vanquish evil in our world and in all others…but are they already too late to save us from the darkness that is coming?

In In the Company of Angels, Jill Jonsson meets Sam Deckard and Luke Lester and embarks on an unexpected adventure. Along the way, she learns of the existence of an Order of special men and women who have kept a secret from the rest of mankind for centuries, and who need her help to prevent a great catastrophe from overtaking our world.
