Dr. Iris Ballard’s glory days are behind her, so when Luke Hudson, her former FBI partner and onetime lover, asks for help constructing a psychological profile of an elusive serial killer who murders single mothers and dumps their bodies in the woods, Iris turns him away. She just wants to be left alone with her infomercials, her German Shepherd, and her vodka. That is, until she gets a peek at the case files.

The media has dubbed him “the Woodsman.” But after Iris learns the sickening details held back from the press, and as she sets foot onto the scene of his latest crime, she assembles a portrait of a more complicated, enigmatic, meticulous man. Control is his motivation. He thrives on it. Soon he even tries to manipulate the investigation by contacting Iris, hoping to rattle the woman he considers an intellectual equal.

The game is on. Iris thinks she has a read on her target, enough to push his buttons, to make him lose control. But when the Woodsman gains the upper hand, Iris faces the most painful reckoning of all—with her own violent past.

Maya knew something was wrong… The stranger’s glowing hands were a big tipoff.

When the stranger murders Maya’s boyfriend with a single touch, drags the college sophomore to an abandoned storage unit, and injects her with a DNA-altering serum, Maya prays for a savior. Instead, she gets a double helping of knight-in-not-so-shining-armor when two young men claiming to be her half-brothers pull off a belated rescue.

Now Maya is swiftly transforming into an “angel”, one of the scientifically-enhanced, energy-sucking creatures her brothers have spent their whole lives trying to destroy. Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.

Struggling to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, this budding paranormal warrior must find a way to accept her new condition and learn to trust her angel-hunting brothers as she joins them in their fight against the powerful and destructive creatures.

On the up side, at least Maya’s eldest brother has stopped trying to kill her!

Award-Winning Author

THREE DELICIOUS FUNNY MYSTERIES…AT A YUMMY BARGAIN PRICE!

Funny, lively lawyer Rebecca Schwartz is a perennial favorite among cozy readers who can’t get enough of smart-mouthed women sleuths. You can’t read just one, they’re like chocolates! So pretend they are—here’s a succulent sampler at a delectably tempting bargain price –barely more than half price. That’s what we call a delicious Kindle deal! (And by the way, they go well with chocolates. )

DEATH TURNS A TRICK

A rollicking tale of murder, romance, and bordellos…

Rebecca Schwartz, nice Jewish lawyer with a few too many fantasies, is happily playing the piano in a whorehouse when she suddenly finds herself assigned to make sure a near-naked state senator escapes a police raid. That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she’s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of Course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor? Fans of Janet Evanovich, Joan Hess, and Elizabeth Peters will get a kick out of this one.

THE SOURDOUGH WARS

TO YOU, IT’S JUST A FROZEN LUMP OF DOUGH; BUT TO SOME, IT’S LIFE AND DEATH…

Especially to handsome Peter Martinelli, who wants to auction off the fabled sourdough starter from his family’s famous bakery. But who’d buy a frozen hunk of flour and water? Only, it turns out, every bakery in San Francisco, a national food conglomerate, and an upstart ringer with a mysterious backer.

Someone would even kill for it. And does.

A tasty treat of a San Francisco mystery. A crisp, tangy story you’re sure to get a rise out of. You won’t find it a bit crumb-y.

TOURIST TRAP

Fear stalks the streets! reports the San Francisco Chronicle. It also stalks these pages, and so do a lot of laughs.

You just know the Easter sunrise service is going to be a bummer when the San Francisco fog lifts to reveal a body nailed to a landmark cross. Next: mass shellfish poisoning at Pier 39. A very different kind of serial killer is operating here—one who seems to have a grudge against the whole city.

And this is a very different kind of serial killer tale—a funny one. Well, actually, what serial killer’s funny? But lawyer sleuth Rebecca Schwartz is warm and witty, never takes herself too seriously, and on one occasion offers closing testimony with green hair.

As the black unguent has to be removed first, Boston Egyptologist Naunet Klein is asked to assist in cleaning and deciphering these golden tablets on site in Cairo.

During a perilous sailing trip from the Red Sea to Crete, Naunet deciphers the two tablets. The inscriptions are dire predictions from an unknown culture predating even Egypt’s Old Kingdom. She also learns the truth about her murderous captors.

Meanwhile, her scientist colleague Jonathan Wilkins scours the Mediterranean for her whereabouts. Will the man who loves her be in time before Naunet’s hour-glass of life runs dry?

Lewis Evans, an award-winning writer from Twain’s hometown, has been blasted by the worst news he could get—his wife Sally has been killed in an auto accident. The next news is just as shocking. His idol Mark Twain comes calling to offer condolences and guidance. But how could it be the literary genius, and brilliant wise-cracker, gone from the earth for a century and a half?

The fellow announces that he is, indeed, the spirit of Twain and has been sent by Sally. He looks and sounds like Twain, and he knows things about Lewis, his wife, and their family that only Sally could have told him. But it’s impossible!

When Lewis puts his idea of what is possible on hold, the two men set off on a grand steamboat journey down the mighty Mississippi River, the river they both love and call home.

Lewis figures he will get to swap stories of years spent piloting the river, and of years spent lost and wandering the world. He is teased into thinking he might get a peek into the secrets of life and death from the storyteller he admires most. And, that he may get to see Sally one more time. Most of all, he will discover how he can live the rest of his life alone, yet in joy and love.

In a climactic scene, cradled in a hot spring in a Natchez Native American ceremony of renewed life, Lewis begins to understand this quest. He faces down hard truths and blazing light with the force of love . . . and all will carry him home.

Amazon Bestselling Author

A baseball player, a fisherman – a young man looking for answers.

Perhaps no pursuits stir the passions of dreamers and poets like baseball and fly fishing. For Nick Grimes, a small town kid with big dreams, these two pastimes and sports are more than pursuits of the soul, they are means to an end. Or so he thinks.

We first see Grimes as a talented pitcher and a cocksure young man with his sights firmly set on a Major League baseball career. With his blazing fastball he uses to zip past hitters, his destiny as a big league ballplayer seems inevitable. He’s barely out of high school when he signs a professional contract to pitch for the Detroit Tigers organization. But when the minor leagues prove to be tougher than what he bargained for, he finds himself out of baseball and learning life’s hard lessons.

Whether fishing for trout in the mountains of Pennsylvania or learning about love, Grimes is a young man chasing happiness, his place in the world. He’s a man who must live life on his own terms, but does he know what he really wants?

Rejecting conventional jobs, Grimes embarks on a different life, that of a fishing guide. But he’ll find happiness to be an elusive creature, and the people he meets along his remarkable life journey will teach him some of its most valuable lessons.

There’s the woman writer with her own dreams, her own ambitions, who captures Grimes’ heart. His father, who gave up his own dreams to remain a factory worker, and a pitching coach who sees something special in Grimes, urge him to take second chances. But perhaps the most unforgettable character is Sir, Jon, a mysterious fly fisherman leading a Thoreau-like existence in the mountains, who offers him life’s most important lesson. His brief encounters with Sir Jon are wake-up calls for the young man, and will provide readers with some of the most unforgettable moments of this remarkable story.

Nick Grimes will learn all about love and sex, death, despair and dashed dreams, but perhaps most of all, hope and rejuvenation.
