“The story is a clear example of how the caring and nurturing of others can make a difference!” -Lynnie

Amazon Bestseller

David’s life could turn out very, very badly. His mother dies suddenly when he is an infant. Then at age two, he is gone. Vanished, with his father, and abandoned in a far-away place.

His future hangs on a Letter from Alabama, a piece of paper that must travel hundreds of miles in an envelope. Then it must land in exactly the right place in a busy office where nobody is under any obligation to read it or pay any attention to it. This is the true story of that letter, and all that will transpire because of it.

It’s the story of human failure, and human triumph. Forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to, and a prayer of thanks for, good and decent people everywhere who stand up for a child when they don’t have to—when they have nothing to gain and perhaps much to lose.

It’s a tribute to those who see the potential in a young person and give that person a chance to be the best that he or she can be. They are the heroes for whom this story is now committed to writing.

The Elect – Nook

“Wow! I was hooked from the start! An intelligent, gripping novel that I couldn’t put down.” -Laurie S.

For the past twelve years, seventeen-year-old August has been a weapon, a mindless child soldier programmed and used by the Foundation to protect its reign. But when he and three other soldiers, including the beautiful and fierce Elisa, somehow awaken one day, they escape their bondage and find themselves unwittingly caught up in a growing rebellion to take down the tyrannical Foundation.

Forced to rediscover who he is, what it means to love, and where he fits in the uprising (all while trying to stay alive), August has his blood-stained hands full. Will he risk his life and any hope of a future with Elisa in order to join the fight, or will he flee the country while he still has a chance?

In the end, his choice has little consequence, because the Foundation knows everything and will stop at nothing to end the threat he poses.

“I was a goner from the first chapter and glued to the end.” -Kimberly R.

One woman on the run. One roughneck cowboy with a seductive drawl. One hot kiss.

Maddie Wells is on the run with Jesse, the infant son of her murdered sister. The boy’s father isn’t far behind. He wants his son and is willing to kill to get him.

Zach is intrigued from the first moment he sees the dark haired beauty in a hotel, but getting his hard working hands on her delectable body is more easily dreamt than achieved. He gets shot for his trouble, by Maddie no less, and sucked into the web of lies and fear that are her constant companions.

“and he just keeps getting better.” — Amazing Stories

Amazon Bestselling Author

An untouchable gunslinger. A lost hoard of gold. A host of brutal adversaries. What could possibly go wrong?

Deputy Marshal Porter Rockwell can’t be harmed by a bullet or a blade. As long as he never cuts his hair, Rockwell is free to right wrongs and chase criminals without worrying about the consequences. But when he learns about a map to a mysterious cache of gold, he’s embroiled in a battle for the treasure with enemies lining up on every side.

As outlaws, villains, and a surprisingly formidable Ute chieftain stand between the Deputy Marshall and the gold, bullet and blade might not be what finally take Rockwell down. It could be plain old bad luck…

Scavengers is a Western with colorful characters and wit straight out of a Tarantino flick. If you like mixing horror with your pulp, strong and admirable heroes, and weird Westerns, then you’ll love the first book in David J. West’s Porter Rockwell series.

“A sweet story and very well written.” -Macromika

Born of wood, cloth, and a substantial dose of magic, Velsa is a Fanarlem, a beautiful artificial girl. Raised to be a concubine, she has seen her friends at the House of Perfumed Ribbons sold off to be the pets of wealthy men. Now her own dreaded day has come. Grau Thanneau is a kind and handsome sorcerer who expects to own a spectacular piece of spellwork–he doesn’t realize that everything he has been told about Fanarlem is a lie. Velsa is not a dull-witted doll, but an intelligent and luminous soul who captivates his heart. Neither of them expected to fall in love, in a land where the law will never recognize her as his equal…

When Grau brings Velsa with him as he serves in the border patrol, they encounter odd magic sent from the High Sorcerer’s palace–or is it magic at all? War is brewing, and with it, the winds of opportunity. Velsa has powers of her own, powers no Fanarlem girl should have, but when the enemy attacks, she might be the only one who can stand against them.

But soon he’s about to get far more than he bargained for…

Strange whisperings and invisible presences begin to appear in the house.

Jonathan gets wind of local legends about the house and land, telling gruesome tales of ethereal and supernatural occurrences.

However, when life begins to imitate art in the most literal sense, Jonathan realizes just what he kind of world he has walked into.

He fears he may have awakened some ancient psychic presence.

Amidst increasing supernatural activity, real life and fiction begin to intertwine to lead to a horrifying climax.

NY Times, USA Today, Top 10 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

England, 1815: The eldest of three sisters, Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what was expected of her. But when the man she’s loved since her girlhood returns from a long spell abroad, she quite suddenly finds herself hoping the fine lord her brother has picked for her won’t propose. She decides that if he does, she’ll quite improperly turn him down—that is, until the man of her hopes and dreams informs her he has no intention of marrying her.

The last time Tristan Nesbitt saw Alexandra, he was a common man with no hope of ever wedding the daughter of a marquess. Seven years later, he’s now Lord Hawkridge, which should make him eminently suitable for the woman who long ago captured his heart. But a dreadful scandal has tarnished his name in England–a scandal so horrid that marrying Alexandra would ruin not only her flawless reputation but her whole family. For Alexandra’s own good, he must fight his relentless desires and stay far away…

The church was empty when I dragged myself out of the pew and headed out the door. As I opened the door, the corner of my eye caught a flicker of movement which I chose to ignore. I walked down the steps and was nearly bowled over by two wild boys. With arms grown strong and quick from man-handling two brothers growing up, I grabbed the two boys before they had a chance to escape me.

Anna Stuart is comfortable with her life. She may be a 30 year old spinster, but she has her routine and enjoys taking care of her father and older brother. One letter shatters all her routines, comfort, and enjoyment. After learning of her brother’s death, Anna feels like her life will never be the same again.

Then she meets two motherless boys. Did God place them in her life to lead her to a new vision of life? Can she trust God to give her the desires of her heart before she even knows what they are?

Note from the Author: Even though this book is the 2nd in the series, reading A Mighty Fortress is not essential to reading Be Thou My Vision. That being said, some things in A Mighty Fortress would help you to further understand some of the backstory in this book.

Alek could kill Rose with a kiss. Finn, with a touch. Her connection to the two men threatens them all.

Rose survived the accident that killed her friend. The problem is the life she returns to scares her more than the night she almost died.

When Alek and Finn enter her world, Rose discovers the after-effects of the accident are worse than she thought. The slow recovery and fogged nightmares aren’t the only changes she needs to cope with.

Rose has an immediate and intense attraction to arrogant housemate, Alek, and this confuses her as much as the chilling effect of her enigmatic work colleague, Finn.

Alek has lived years closed off from people. He didn’t expect someone like Rose to come into his life and challenge the reality he grips onto.

If Finn doesn’t fix the mistake he made, his life is in danger. His desire to help and protect Rose makes his task difficult, especially when she’s the mistake he needs to fix.

Ghosts? Demons? Angels? Vampires? Or something more? The supernatural you find living and working in this English city are a little different to those you usually find in the genre…
