Synopsis

Growing up in a mentally abusive household was never fun, but then I married a Walter Mitty character who took me to Africa and into some ridiculous and dangerous situations! To survive, I worked 24/7. I taught children, ran the worst riding school in the world, bred pet animals, announced on radio, lived on a boat and brought up two children of my own. On the lighter side, I hosted a royal occasion, met heads of state, interviewed Nelson Mandela and shook hands with Prince Charles. Much to my amazement I 'fell' into the media, first writing for radio and television, then directing, and eventually I ran my own video production company and won several awards. However, throughout all this, my mother lurked in the background, always there to remind me what a failure I was. The only thing that saved me from admittance to the nearest mental home was an unfailing sense of humour.

Synopsis

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Richard Bard comes the next highly anticipated Brainrush thriller, a mind-gripping action adventure that spans three continents and two books - Everlast and Ephemeral. (Ephemeral named one of IndieReader's Best Books of 2014, available Jan 10, 2015)

A gifted boy forced to grow up too fast... A father who will do anything to protect him... A madman bent on destroying them both.

In Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to infiltrate the world's most secure networks. But the scientific advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast foundation--who may die before realizing his dream of immortality--and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.

Caught in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex, whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the impasse.

In Everlast (book one), when Jake's family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, he races across two continents in his search for them, unaware his hostage son and teenage siblings have crash-landed in the jungles of South China, where they must find every ounce of their courage and wits to survive the wilds and escape the ruthless drug lord who is hot on their heels. Can a seven-year-old boy learn to kill to save his family?

"Ken thought he was having a nightmare. He felt fingers prodding him and he couldn’t breathe.

Ken tried to compose himself and waited for the beckoning white light that he knew must surely come. But the scabby, gnarled and bloody hands started dragging him downwards.

From Karolina Robinson, Winner of the Centre of Excellence Awards 2017 - Creative Writing...

On one of those magically white winters nights, my mother took me in her arms and shut the doors behind her.
We left my drunken father in the name of a better life. And the name of that better life was Tom, a local gangster with the face of the devil himself.
The next thing I saw was my mother’s bloody face bashed into the ground and teeth scattered around her lifeless body.
I looked at him and thought to myself - PLEASE, DON'T KILL ME.

"The intensity, the drama and harsh reality will leave you gasping."


This story has haunted me all of my life, through the daily flashbacks and nightmares.
It has taken me some time to build up the courage to let this story out of my heart.
And now, with every single word I can live free.

FALLEN HERO is about a man who seems to spend his life building bridges. Bridges between his unknown origins and his aspirations in life. Once he finds a tenuous link to his biological father Chris Squires cannot help but follow its path. Despite his misgivings he seeks out his roots.

FALLEN HERO is also about a man who is trying to reconcile the realities of war, and life, with his disappointment over his lost inner hopes for the dad he needed to find.

Two boys about to become teenagers: Christopher, born just after the end of World War Two, grows up in the UK; Fritz, orphaned by a bomb dropped on his German home in that same terrible war, befriended by a US marine. When Christopher discovers he was adopted he seeks to find his biological father. Fritz never gets the chance to grow much older and is found dead in the back of General George Patton's Cadillac at the end of the war.

Chris Squires is a confused man, constantly seeking his hero father-figure. The British baby boomer is surprised to find he has a connection with Fritz. Chris discovers the link through Jimmy Lucas, a GI veteran, who he believes could be his father. But his surprise turns to horror when he learns that Jimmy was involved in the death of both Patton and the boy.

Did he kill General George Patton, one of the greatest Generals of the twentieth century? Did he kill an orphaned German boy at the end of World War Two? If the answer to any or all of these questions is Yes! how will Chris cope with the rest of his life?

A confrontation creates further tragedy for Chris, for Jimmy, and for Walt - the man who had saved Jimmy’s life! Chris panics and retreats back to Britain, trying to forget the incident he caused in San Francisco. Although appearing to lead a mundane and respectable life, for years he is tormented by guilt. He still hopes to find his hero, a guide to some kind of inner peace. And then Walt re-enters his life bringing with him a new bridge!

View full details

Synopsis

2nd Edition

For centuries, the Great Bell was silent...

It remained undisturbed, nearly forgotten by history, hidden away in the ruins of an abandoned fortress. The enchantments within its iron slumbered, its secrets protected by silence. Until someone discovered how to ring the Bell, other secrets would remain safe.

One day, while running an errand, a young store clerk took a wrong turn, then another, until he found himself deep within the old fortress where the Great Bell waited.

It waited for him.
And when the hapless clerk rang the Great Bell and released its enchantments, his troubles began.

For he had become The Bellringer.

He claimed it was all an accident, that he did not mean to ring the Bell. Fate, it seemed, thought otherwise, and proof of the Bellringer's destiny began to emerge just as the world spiraled into war. Revolt and treachery worked to break apart the Seven Realms. Armies were on the march. The faraway King, obsessed with his own power, seemed unwilling or unable to prevent the looming catastrophe.

Perhaps a new King was needed...if only someone could penetrate the secret of the King's power and take the throne before it was too late. It was foretold that the person who discovered the True Name of the King would become the next King. But who was capable of such a thing?

The Bellringer.

About
The Year of the Red Door
244 Days Remain.
That is all.

The Year of the Red Door has begun, and four months have already passed by. This is the story of the last 244 days.

Uncanny things are taking place in the world, mysterious powers are stirring, and there are signs of coming change. Like pieces on a game-board, ancient forces are moving into position, gathering strength. Many sense the portents and see the signs, but few know their meaning. Fewer still understand what must be done. But who is there to do it?

In only 244 days, six intrepid travelers must cross thousands of miles, to the far edge of the world, to find a place that may not even exist. A legendary place called Griferis where a new king may be prepared, trained, and judged for worthiness. It is their bid to find that place, to discover the secret Name of the King, and to make one of their companions the new King. But hope is thin, and time runs out. Can the Name be found? Can the Usurper use it to take the throne? And will it make any difference? It already seems too late.

In the spirit of J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Dickens comes a new heroic tale, a story of ageless love and brave determination, of tragic loss and the hope of redemption.

Synopsis

"Justice for the Black Knight" won the 2015 Beverley Hills Book Award for Best Legal Thriller. It was awarded the prestigious star by Kirkus Reviews which called it "...superbly crafted...intricately detailed...a must read story of relationships, prejudice and bravery, a vivid paeon for justice." Red City Review wrote that it "...quite astutely tackles the topic of racism, combining the best attributes of legal thrillers like 'The Firm' with the exploratory and contemplative tone of subtle but powerful works of literature like Ralph Ellison's 'Invisible Man." Clarion Reviews called it "...a twentieth century law and order fable...that has the feel of a true crime mystery, coming of age novel, and high stakes courtroom drama rolled into one..."



This dramatic legal thriller is a story of beautiful relationships wrapped in a dark mystery from the distant past that will decide the fate of a man on trial for his life. Ruby and Annabelle, who became friends during the shadow of the Great Depression, crossing the boundaries that separated them by race, are reunited at the murder trial of Ruby's brother, the last person either of them want to believe would commit such a heinous crime. When they were children, Freddie had created a childhood alter ego called the “Black Knight,” who vowed to fight injustice in the world, and had tried to live up to that ideal throughout his life. But now, Freddie finds himself on trial for the brutal murder of an elderly man of stellar reputation, facing the death penalty, represented by an incompetent attorney, and unlikely to receive the justice he thinks, but isn't sure, he deserves.



Justice for the Black Knight is the story of a 1981 trial, where Annabelle and Ruby reach back into the past to try to prove that Freddie is a hero instead of a villain. It is an inspirational tale of friendship extending beyond the borders of race, which also takes an exciting and realistic look at the process of obtaining justice through the legal system.

Synopsis

As Kristin Tabor stood atop Ouray’s Peak at the moment of her final quest she pondered.

Chief Jack knew: whenever the red man wars against the white, it is always the red man who loses.
But which was she?
Jamie said his mother’s blood flowed in his veins.
Just so, her father’s blood flowed in hers.
And so it had been husband against wife.
Father against daughter.
Brother against sister.
Whenever the red man wars against the white, it is always the red man who loses.
And what if the red man is you?
And what if the white man is you?
And what if the red man and what if the white man both together, mixed together, flowed freely together in the same veins and those veins were you?

The history of the massacre of White River, Colorado of 1879 provides the backdrop for the story of the Tabor family in contemporary times. When family matriarch Christiana Tabor lies dying, she implores her daughter Christine to contact the Ute Shaman Sowowic to guide her passing. Christine Tabor does so, awakening her long buried heritage. The awakening ruptures the Tabor household: Mickey Tabor, Christine’s husband cannot nor will not understand the longing created in his wife. Tensions in the once happy household escalate with brother, Jamie, and sister, Kristin, caught between two immovable forces, until one day, without explanation or preamble, Christine Tabor is gone.

Mickey Tabor begins a long slow slide into alcoholism, secrets, and violence. What once was a close relationship between Kristin and Jamie grows strained and distant. Jamie, once Kristin’s hero, seems to align with his father. One day challenging her father’s strict admonitions and Jamie’s repeated warnings, Kristin breaks open the lock to her father’s room. There, she finds the w’ni thokunup—a Ute musical instrument given to her mother by her grandmother-- and her mother’s letters. Mickey finds Kristin, and attacks her brutally. When Jamie comes home from hockey practice, he stumbles ashen upon the scene, and rushes Kristin to the hospital. Unconscious, Kristin dreams of her mother and grandmother. Upon her return from the hospital, she leaves home for good.

Thus begins fourteen year old Kristin Tabor’s journey, a journey that will take her backward in search of her mother and her Ute heritage, and forward to find romance and love, and eventually, reunification and hope.

"A delightful book, fun, edgy, unforgettable." -Mary Kennedy, Best-Selling Author of the Dream Club Mysteries
A seventeen-year-old high school dropout with a wicked hidden talent, Mona, is sitting at the counter of the Fountain Coffee Room, trying not to attract the attention of Maddy Miller, a feisty, unfiltered, hotshot producer, who'll decide if her brother Joost Larvink, gets to make his Hollywood debut. But before she knows it, Mona is kneedeep in Hollywood politics and some desperate characters, including a stoner screenwriter, engaged to Maddy's daughter, an action hero jock lost in the closet and an overly dramatic A-list star about to become box office poison. All Mona wants to do is drink and float in the pool. But with her brother's career at stake, Mona is determined to bend the town at her own will.
Enter Elki Daniels-- a carefree K-town native, who spends her days chasing obscure movie memorabilia, healing a traumatized puppy, and acting as de facto leader of a group of defiant girls. Elki is a Hollywood insider who can explain this duplicitous town, and why not, even life.
While steering her brother towards success and away from another nervous breakdown, Mona hooks up with the wrong guy, goes along on a burglary spree, has to save a deranged Mexican gardener and even risks her own, and her best friend life, in Moroni's gleeful and riotous takedown of Hollywood.

Anatola Debrowska has a family spinning into separate orbits and a life spiraling into soul-stealing monotony when the 25 year old son she gave up at birth suddenly materializes on her doorstep. The reunion does not go smoothly. When Pyotr returns abruptly to the East Coast, Anatola, determined not to lose her son a second time, follows. With sister Clarisse in tow, she finds him disheveled and drunken, and together they trundle him off to Aunt Alka’s house. There a treasure trove of Debrowska-Debski archives left by Frances, the family matriarch, is revealed. Eventually, Anatola is able to break through Pytor’s defenses, and the archaeological dig begins. The archives: letters, diaries, and Frances’s enigmatic poetry, lead Anatola on a journey that begins in Debowiec, Poland in January 1756 and follows the family as it is torn apart by loyalists and revolutionaries, riches and poverty, oppression and war and the partitions of a beloved homeland. The Women Debrowska interweaves the personal story of a family with the history of a nation driven by an endearing spirit of hope that refused to be conquered, a spirit unique to the Polish character, a spirit that soared during even her darkest most desperate hours.

Synopsis

The third book of the Stone Quest Series finds Luke Stone and Beth Rutledge's marriage teetering on the edge of dissolution as their daughter Bridget Grace at thirteen, the spitting image of her father, struggles to break free of parental restraint, especially her father's attempts to guide and constrain her "second sight," the same psychic abilities he has, but which in her are ,if anything, even more pronounced. Now, adding to the tumult, is the case of three missing girls, all vanished from the Lower East Side of New York City -- the area where Luke in his teens lived as the disciple of the black magician and now his nemesis Armand Jacobi. As Luke is drawn more deeply into the girls' case, his investigation takes him back to Alphabet City and the raging Vampire Club scene. Ominous signs develop pointing irrefutably to Jacobi's involvement. But as Luke immerses himself in the case, staying longer and longer away from home, the relationship between Beth and Bridget Grace simmers more and more toxic. Unknown to either of her parents, BG has developed a secret, powerful relationship with a mysterious young man whom she first met in an online chat room. One day, as Luke is on his way to NYC , and after yet another blow up with her mother -- BG, like the three other missing girls-- vanishes, leaving behind a cryptic note. As Luke's investigation into BG's disappearance gets underway with the help of retired NY detective Stan Banor, Luke's world is further shattered by the sudden appearance of a beautiful older woman, a woman's whose face he knows but whom he cannot quite place. The woman is Danuta Dabrowitz, his mother, and she brings with her many memories and painful secrets. Though her cause, so she tells him, is but one: to join her powers with his in order to find Bridget Grace and bring her home, Luke cannot fully trust the woman who had so betrayed him as a child by leaving him alone in the hands of his abusive alcoholic father. With each passing day, the investigation grows more gruesome, and more deadly--even turning up the skeletal remains of a victim murdered twenty-five years ago, Matthew, whose murder has haunted Luke all his life. Working closely with Stan and his men, and with retired Sheriff Esther Rinaldi, Luke grows certain the girls' case is no longer a missing persons but a homicide. Then Danuta tells him of their heritage to an ancient people, the Neuri, who possess enormous powers, including the power of shape-shifting-- a power that Armand Jacobi himself may share. Once again, Luke Stone finds himself pitted against Armand Jacobi.. Surrounded with warriors he is not sure he can trust-- the most pre-eminent of whom is Luke himself.-- Luke must race against the greatest enemy of all -- time-- in this battle against his adversary to save his daughter's life.

“...In true Deb McEwan style, there is a lot of dark humor in the novel and you will enjoy this book just as much as the others. These characters have developed beautifully and, as always, the dialogues reveal so much about the new characters. Book Three in the series lives up to the bar set by the previous two wonderful novels. It was amazing.”

Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite - 5 stars!
“…McEwan’s characters have depth and the conflicts they encounter are authentic and real. There are intriguing shades of gray in the world she’s created.
This is a seriously good book that covers important issues. Friends & Revenge gets the reader involved in the lives of these unlikely soldiers, making it a book you just won’t want to put down.
Unlikely Soldiers, Book 3: Friends & Revenge is most highly recommended.”

Synopsis

Is anyone ever really free of their past? Is it truly possible to start over fresh?



Etta was certainly going to try. After her turbulent undergraduate years, she was getting a fresh start in Marquette and finishing her dream. She’d pour everything she had into a healthy mind, body and spirit and work to become the best writer she could. What a dream spot to do it, along the shores of Lake Superior.



Tom was forging a new vision for his life after a career-ending injury as a power player on Northern Michigan’s college hockey team. The NHL was no longer in his future. But what were his prospects? Where would he find that something he’d longed for, to build a life like his parents had? How could he form what they had found together?



After a meeting of the minds, Tom and Etta create a bond from friendship. That friendship blossoms into romance. But is it really possible to start anew with so much baggage and no clear vision of the future? Do your experiences shape you into someone who can make something pure and clean from the crumbling embers? Or will the past always come looking for you when you least expect it?



Words from another Henrietta, who re-built her life from tragedy, bring the answers that allow Etta to move forward. But is it already too late?



Henrietta is stand-alone coming-of-age romance, which is the first in a three-book series, set in Marquette, Michigan and northern Iowa.



(Contains adult language and content)



Are you tired of romances that are always about a billionaire or a bad boy? Or better yet, the troublemaker who is in reality a good man but nobody knows it? They aren't realistic and after a few of them, they grow old. Patricia M Jackson strives to write romances about people you might meet in real life, people like you and I. They may do somewhat extraordinary things in her books, but their fifteen minutes of fame are quickly gone and they go on to live the lives of a Regular Jane and Joe.

Synopsis

Centuries ago, humans colonised Jørn, a lonely planet on the far side of the galaxy. Arriving in five great colony ships, they quickly settled the surface only to discover, after a few short years, that the planet was killing them. The culprit, a native spore, carried on every wind to every corner of the globe.

Genetic engineering, blending DNA from Earth and Jørn species, saved their crops and livestock, but for humans there was no cure. Instead they took to the skies, turning their colony ships into cities that floated above the spore’s reach.

Hero Regan is special, and not in a way she likes. She hears voices, voices in her head that other people can’t. Surrounded by butlers, bodyguards and tutors, insulated from the outside world, her only solace is Fink, a six-hundred-kilogram, genetically engineered ruc-pard. They share lives, thoughts, triple-chocolate marshmallow ice-cream and the burning desire for freedom.

Their chance comes when Hero is allowed to attend school in Cumulus City. Here, along with making unexpected friends, Hero discovers she is an unwitting part of a master plan set into motion by the first colonists, a plan she must either help or foil if she’s ever to attain the freedom she craves.

Morgan is a lecy-eng, one of an elite group that has responsibility for maintaining the vital systems of Rundkern. When a circuit in Agri-Prod is suspected of being responsible for a valuable crop’s sickening state, Morgan gets to discover more about the lowly agri-engs than he ever imagined.

His tale becomes one of intrigue, love and an unexpected but frankly unbelievable discovery. But before Morgan knows it, he’s committed himself to agri-eng Stephanie and her own people’s long-held hopes about a place that seems to him little more than a pie-in-the-sky dream.

Can there really be a “Promised Land”, and if so, will it ultimately snatch Stephanie from him? For the Promised Land is somewhere to which no lecy-eng can ever journey. But then, nor can Morgan be left behind alive in Rundkern knowing of its existence.

A gripping SF story from a master storyteller, author of the SF/Fantasy novels “Solem” and the six volumes of the “Realm of Dica” series: all “Beautifully written books with deep, rich and unexpected tales told so engrossingly well”.

Story 1, “The Town With Four Names,” is about Kedzie's idyllic hometown, which has survived against all odds for more than three hundred years. Cassie Stillwater, a 90-year-old descendent of the original founder, writes down the town’s history, a history that turns personal.



Story 2, “Leaving Home,” is about Kedzie’s decision to seek a life outside the town gates. She finds a job that horrifies her parents, who fear that they raised her too well and protected her too much.



Story 1 will remind you of summer. Story 2 will remind you of what it feels like to begin work on your life.



The stories aren’t Young Adult in spite of the age of the heroine and in spite of the fact that they are more or less G-rated. They aren’t exactly science fiction either.



This little “appetizer” book introduces the setting and the basic plot of New Sun Rising: Ten Stories.

Synopsis

Hero Regan is a telepath, the first in a new subspecies of human engineered to save the world, but that was before she blew up a chunk of Cumulus City. Now the world doesn't need her, which is just how she likes it.

Hero has just about everything she wants: independence, friendship and a shot at her fondest dream—to explore the surface of the alien planet she calls home. Life would be perfect except her best friend is keeping secrets, Fink—her six hundred kilogram, genetically engineered companion—is constantly angry, and there's something wrong with Hero's brain. Like, really, really wrong.

It all wouldn't be so bad, except Hero has secrets to keep too—the kind that may just be unforgivable—and the Librarian once again needs her help to save the world, whether she wants to or not.

With past actions coming back to haunt her, old friendships falling apart and new, confusing ones coming together, Hero has to find answers because, this time, the world really is going to change.

James Whyle takes on the war genre with an eloquent narrative and a command of language and style that captures the fragility and bleakness of the time. There is no doubt that Whyle is a masterful storyteller.

An illiterate European child is stranded on the southern tip of Africa. The British and the Xhosa have been spilling each other’s blood for eighty years and the kid signs up for the conflict in the hope of steady meals and a few shillings a month.

View full details

Synopsis

This omnibus contains three novelettes set in the Gen2K world;

1. The Quin
Tama is broken. Then again, everyone left in the last clean city is. But Tama is more broken than most – which makes for wicked irony that he works in restoration, of all places. Broken Tama fixes things. He’s good at it though – good enough that he can almost forget how bad things are -- for everyone -- and how lonely being broken is. That is until Bex needs something restored. Every encounter with Bex lights up parts inside of Tama he had no idea needed fixing.

2. Missive
Tama discovered recently he is an old-fashioned romantic. So how does an old-fashioned romantic woo the light-bringer, Bex, in a city where everything is broken but the tech? Text, audio, photo and video messages are transmitted almost instantly; there’s not much charm in that. So begins Tama’s scavenger hunt for old-world paper to bear his secret missives. The last clean city hasn’t seen courtship like this for over a century.

3. Salvage
Geronimo works the salvage yards. He’s the best borer around. For Geronimo, “finders, keepers” has always made good sense. It pays when you’re good at finding. Minding his own business and amassing his stash was simple, so long as he kept his rules. The stash was safe. His. Keeping the rules was easy until Tama. One deal with a love-struck trader serves Geronimo a whole lot more than he bargained for.

Synopsis

Second Edition

Like a dark jewel, there are many facets to a curse,
as The Bellringer now learns...

The conspiracy has formed. Robby will make his bid to become King. First he must go to the mythical place called Griferis, on the far side of the world. But no sooner than their journey begins, Robby and his band of friends face delay and obstacle. Along the way, they make new acquaintances, people both inscrutable and mysterious.

Lord Tallin, brooding and powerful, haunted and paralyzed by a perfect memory. But he is the only person who can buy Robby the time he needs, if only he can shake himself to action.

Lyrium, an Elifaen Firstborn, mysterious and secretive, come to test Robby, and to advise him. But when she meets Robby's companions, one in particular, she is filled with wonder, and with foreboding.

Esildre, beautiful and enigmatic, fighting against the curse that Secundur put upon her. One of Robby's companions will soon fall prey to her enchantment.

When Robby and his companions are captured by pixies, he bargains for their freedom, and risks unleashing the little folk upon an unsuspecting world.

Meanwhile, he is trailed by mercenaries, tracked by black eagles, and followed by an elusive Dreamwalker who holds the key to Robby's greatest power.

And darker forces now stir, forces that only Robby can thwart.

But only if he can reach Griferis in time.

About The Year of the Red Door

244 Days Remain.

That is all.

The Year of the Red Door has begun, and four months have already passed by. This is the story of the last 244 days.

Uncanny things are taking place in the world, mysterious powers are stirring, and there are signs of coming change. Like pieces on a game-board, ancient forces are moving into position, gathering strength. Many sense the portents and see the signs, but few know their meaning. Fewer still understand what must be done. But who is there to do it?

In only 244 days, six intrepid travelers must cross thousands of miles, to the far edge of the world, to find a place that may not even exist. A legendary place called Griferis where a new king may be prepared, trained, and judged for worthiness. It is their bid to find that place, to discover the secret Name of the King, and to make one of their companions the new King. But hope is thin, and time runs out. Can the Name be found? Can the Usurper use it to take the throne? And will it make any difference? It already seems too late.


In the spirit of J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Dickens comes a new heroic tale, a story of ageless love and brave determination, of tragic loss and the hope of redemption. During this quest, mythic powers arise from the ancient past, fate collides with destiny, and the world edges swiftly to its final destruction or to its ultimate fulfillment. Only the Bellringer can tip the balance of fate, but the world is almost out of time...

View full details

Synopsis

The Wall Street Journal #1 bestselling author Richard Bard, who entertained fans with his wildly successful Brainrush thriller series, now unleashes the heart-pounding series finale in a two-book ride that will take your breath away.

Jake Bronson's family and friends are mourning him. They'd watched as he sacrificed himself so their lives could return to normal. But normal wasn't to be. The megalomaniac whom Jake had killed during his suicide assault left a legacy of videos that damn Jake and everyone associated with him, leading to a price being put on their heads, dead or alive. They go to ground, unaware their every move is being tracked by a new breed of young, tech-savvy jihadists about to unleash vengeance on America's homeland--with Jake's family and the unsuspecting citizens of Los Angeles in their crosshairs.

As the jaws of the terrorist trap begin to close, Jake's eight-year-old son, Alex, faces a threat of his own. He carries a deadly secret that endangers the world, and now that his father is dead, Alex is the only one who can deal with it. He slips away to heed the call of unearthly visions that demand his presence, and his journey draws him to the back alleys of Bogota, Columbia, where he encounters a group of terminally ill orphans. One of their siblings has been abducted by child traffickers. Alex can't ignore their cry for help, and the unlikely alliance plans a nothing-to-lose rescue mission that has little chance of success.

But the bloodthirsty outcry against Alex's family and friends reaches beyond those who wish them harm, as do the visions that reveal their dark secrets to Alex. Help is on the way...

An "international thriller with soul." Ideal reading for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

Synopsis

Walk tells the story of a nightmarish scramble along the wild coastline of South Africa by the survivors of the wreck of the Grosvenor on 5 August 1782. Having decided to walk to the Cape of Good Hope, beginning at Lambasi in northern Pondoland, the few survivors ended up in the dune deserts not far from what we now know as
Port Elizabeth.

Walk takes the reader, step by step, day by day, on young William Hubberly’s horrific trek. While indisputably fiction, Walk sails a good deal closer to the historical truth than most nonfiction you will read and is a haunting parable on the meeting of Europe and Africa.

Book cover image for The Merry-Go-Round Man
View full details

Synopsis

Do you believe you can shape your future, determine your destiny? One spring day in 1954, three sixth grade boys make a bet: the one who can climb first to the top of a small green merry-go-round outside their school will be “Champ for life!” For the rest of his days he’ll be “on Easy Street!” So they engage in a “mad scramble . . . clambering over each other with murderous intent,” and eventually one of them reaches the summit and stands triumphant, lording it over the others. He is the merry-go-round man.

The Merry-Go-Round Man is a novel about three boys growing up in the so-called innocent days of the Eisenhower fifties. It’s about rites of passage, loss of innocence, sexual initiation, racism, and much more . Of the three boys, Johnny Roth is central. He possesses two transcendent gifts which are only beginning to emerge as the novel begins. One of them is the ability to box or fight, something he deeply fears. The other ability is artistic and mystical. He is a natural expressionistic painter of vast potential. Unfortunately, Johnny’s father, an Orthodox Jew, hates both of these pursuits, and his opposition tears Johnny apart.

Of the two other boys, Lee Esner grows up to be a gifted football player with what looks like a lucrative pro career ahead of him. He also has a flair for attracting beautiful girls. Is he the merry-go-round man? The third boy, Jimmy Wiggins, is black and from the ghetto. Attending an elite white school with Johnny and Lee, his naive love for a pretty white girl is destroyed by her cruel racism. Another rite of passage. Symbols such as a burning Buddhist monk make us ask whether anyone is really The Merry-Go-Man in life.

Synopsis

Coaches, and a Matchmaking King
In The Surprise Princess, Book 6 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series, King Jozef of Bariavak continues his search for his long-missing granddaughter, and State Department security official Hunter Pierce is on the case again. This time the clues lead to Ashton, Wisconsin, and the athletic offices of Ashton University. There, young Katie Davis works as an administrative assistant and Brad Spencer as a basketball coach, and both soon will be caught up in international intrigue and some royal matchmaking. You are introduced to Brad and the Ashton campus in Hoops, the prequel to The Surprise Princess. Flash back a few years and Brad is a star on the basketball team, coached by C.J. Draper and tutored by Carolyn Trent. The latter two return in The Surprise Princess as mentors to Katie, and, okay, they might take part in a little matchmaking themselves.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Book 6, The Surprise Princess
A Princess? No Way
Katie is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin … isn’t she?
The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men’s basketball office at Ashton. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around Brad, the assistant basketball coach, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-lost granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong … don’t they?
Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he’s not about to indulge. So he’s going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be her right … even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he’s the king of her heart.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Hoops (an RITA Finalist)
Before Brad volunteers to be Katie's protector, he played on a college basketball team that had a very special season.

The Coach and the Professor
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English was hijacked the day she became academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker was C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent and sexy new coach.
C.J. has never let adversity stop him - if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chose to rattle her ivory tower it was just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . wasn't it?
When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, will anyone win?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The Surprise Princess and its prequel, Hoops, are moving, passionate small-town romances that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson.

Christmas Courage – A Sweetwater Canyon Novelette

A week before Christmas, Kat’s father turns up on their doorstep and wants to be a part of her life.

As far as Theresa is concerned, when Doug walked out fifteen years ago, leaving her with a two-year-old child and a mountain of debt, he forfeited all claims to Kat’s life. He does not get to waltz in like Santa Claus and re-claim her.

Kat needs more than courage to navigate this Christmas season. She needs a miracle.

Synopsis

Collects every part of the swords-and-sorcery serial, Seven Stones.

Plagued by nightmares of shifting stone and ancient evil, Absolution Kobb, Reverend Militant of the Order of the Maker, journeys to the northern edge of civilisation. Encountering violence from both villagers and the inhuman tribes that dwell beyond the palisades, and exhausted from both his age and his visions, he is saved by two very different people: Anessa, a young villager seeking to escape a life of shopkeeping; and Haelen, an ageing healer seeking his kidnapped daughter.

At first, their aims align. However, with every step toward sealing the evil away taking them further from the simplicity of heroes opposing the darkness, they must each decide not only how far they will go but when an ally becomes a villain.

Synopsis

Collects parts 10 - 33 of the weekly swords-and-sorcery serial, Seven Stones. With the means to quiet his nightmares and a better idea of their source, Reverend Kobb and his companions travel further north in search of the root of the evil.

Anessa’s defeat of the monster that threatened Alcston is a solid victory, and obtaining the obscure ingredient that Haelen needs to grant Kobb sleep is more than reward enough. But the village also holds a map that shows the location of stone circle that plagues Kobb’s dreams.

Invigorated by their mutual success, the journey seems almost pleasant. But when they arrive, lethal magics bar their path. Pressing on offers only death, so Kobb must make a deal to lower the barrier; a deal that will see him face the Eaters again, and this time he must take one alive.

With each choice challenging the friendship between Kobb, Anessa, and Haelen, which of them will sacrifice their principles for the slim chance of success?

Synopsis

"Whether myth or legend, young or old, every smile leaves a story untold."

Poetry is art, an art that resides within many of us. Many of us have stories that we will never share out loud, however through poetry our silence is often broken.

Stories Untold is a group of poetry written when I faced many difficulties and had no other means to speak out. Every poem tells a story and it is up to the reader to decide whether or not they want to listen.

To all the poetry lovers out there, these are a collection of stories untold.
