THE FLIGHT OF LA TORTUGA – A Novella

LATEST AND GREATEST! JUST PUBLISHED!

The craziest thing might be the ultimate answer.

Tom Gifford is having a bad day, one that’s been going on for a year. He has lost everything dear to him, including any hope for the future. When he overhears a story about a flying turtle, he feels compelled to check it out. There are only a dozen or so obstacles in his path – the Vancouver police, Mexican Federales, a priest who might be Catholic, the demons of past memories, his addictions to alcohol and pain killers, bandits, physical wounds, his growing depression, and, of course, a beautiful woman.

Will the Turtle be his salvation, or just another disappointment on his way to hell?

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT HER – New Adult Romantic Suspense (Click the title to order)

Frank Mercer returns from military duty in Afghanistan to attend college in Michigan. He has just graduated with a Bachelors degree in criminal justice, and has the whole summer to play, before taking a police force job the next Fall. So, off he goes to New York City, the Big Apple, the City That Never Sleeps. There, he meets Cheryl. She’s elegantly beautiful, unusual in speech and mannerisms, doesn’t provide a lot of information about herself… there is something about her.

Frank wants very much to love her, but cannot figure out her story. He lands a job in the NYPD Cadet Training Facility where he sees information about terrorist plots. Follow Frank, Cheryl, NYU techs, terrorists, Syrian refugees, the NYPD, the Army, and three Federal Agencies as they figure it all out. Or, as they get fooled all the way.

It’s adult romance, suspense, and mystery – all interwoven to keep you reading. It’s a fascinating and wild ride, spread across the United States, Great Britain, the Middle East, and Canada. You’ve met these characters; they are that real. They draw you in. You root for them, laugh with them, cry with them.

And, the ending is astounding, right to the last line.

ReDescend: The Sequel to ReEmergence (Click the title to order)

Anise Anakar reemerged into a different world wearing just her underwear. Her only possessions are a necklace, a packet of photographs, and a strange tattoo. She is hurt, knows no one, and no one recognizes the language she speaks. She has to find her husband and sons, she has to return to the world she left, she needs allies, but without revealing what she knows.

A famous linguist comes to her aid, in several ways. Tom Stapleton helps her communicate, and the story she tells is unbelievable. Tom brings in his colleagues to help with legal matters, the press, and emotional grief of great loss. The police want to know who she is and where she came from. They think she’s hiding some dark secret. They, and the military, want to go where she came from.

Follow Anise as she learns and copes, or becomes hopelessly overwhelmed. It’s less science fiction, and more distinct possibility. What would you do in her situation?
