Sometimes, the Place You Belong Isn’t Where You Began…

With an accounting degree that’s getting her nowhere, Chloe Malinski spends her nights waitressing and her days housesitting in a neighborhood that’s infinitely beyond her reach or comfort zone. But she knows all too well that no one wants a pauper in their mansion, so she’s gotten good – maybe a little too good – at faking it ’til she makes it.

With more baggage than any airline, Lawton Rastor made his money through prizefighting – and not the kind with padded gloves and some bowtie-wearing referee. He made it through the gritty, back alley kind where sweaty money changed hands over beer and bimbos.

She’s a poor girl from Hamtramck. He’s a billionaire bad boy from Detroit. They should’ve never crossed paths. But when they do, thanks to Chloe’s latest housesitting gig, the collision of sparks, secrets, and misunderstandings leaves both of them yearning to belong exactly where they shouldn’t – with each other.

“Readers can only hope the likable characters, fast-paced plots and local color will continue …” –Albuquerque Journal

USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

A nearly flawless museum robbery, a missing million-dollar necklace, a stalled police investigation. For the victim of the crime, the situation calls for desperate measures.

Penelope Fitzpatrick wasn’t born to wealth. Her grandfather fed the family by selling his small stash of gemstones smuggled from tsarist Russia when the monarchy fell. Now, Pen has done well for herself as a successful novelist. But when the final jewel in her family legacy becomes the target of a cunning band of thieves, and the priceless piece is stolen, the police have many excuses why they can’t solve the crime. Not one to accept defeat, Pen does the only thing she can do—gather a group of friends to help catch the crooks and steal back the necklace.

It becomes apparent the thief is a master con man who is likely working with an international theft ring. The chase takes the Ladies far from home and into elegant European enclaves as they attempt to face him down. Close calls and near misses—it’s never quite certain whether the women will be able to pull their own spectacular heist and see justice done.

“A series of short stories, I read them straight through. A science fiction/mystery/very fun read – loved them! Lots of twists and turns.” -Donette W.

Aliens, creatures, time travel, and alternate dimensions mix with mystery and fantasy in this collection of fourteen tales by a dinosaur of a writer who still prefers old-style SF and fantasy that is carefully crafted, contains a twist or two, and provides satisfaction to the reader. For the hectic modern life, a short story is the ideal speculative fiction nibble between getting the kids serviced and dropping the car off at the day-care.

E.g.:

A man kills and forgets—utterly—that his victims ever existed; a nurse investigates and uncovers a decades-long secret. Old forces regroup to make sure the secret remains a secret.

A couple is stranded in their Colorado cottage by an antagonized creature that they can’t see, and it’s getting bolder and smarter as the hours go by.

A scientist creates a time machine and precipitates the Ultimate Disaster. No, not that disaster. The ultimate disaster!

Two boys enter a county fair and encounter the world’s greatest juggler, who holds a secret that’s both wonderful and razor-edged.

The Dinosaur Chronicles contains 14 long and short tales of science fiction and fantasy in the classic style; they run the gamut from the thoughtful to the witty to the poignant. Check out the Look inside or see the excerpts below:

“You Are My Sunshine,” is the sequel to “All My Love, Detrick,” this novel is set during the holocaust.

When Helga Haswell becomes pregnant by a married SS officer who abandons her, she finds herself alone and desperate. She is afraid to tell her parents that she is pregnant out of wedlock, so her doctor suggests that Helga check into Heinrich Himmler’s home for the Lebensborn. This is a program, he explains, that has been instituted by the Nazi’s to create perfect Aryan babies. Since Helga is of pure German blood and the child’s father is an SS officer, she will be accepted, the doctor explains. Her child will have a good life because adoption is available only to the finest of Hitler’s Elite. Not only this, the doctor says but during her pregnancy, Helga will have the finest food and medical care available. And, instead of a life of shame, she will be honored for her efforts in producing a perfect Aryan child for the new world that Hitler is in the process of creating. Then after the baby is born, the Lebensborn will take the child and assume all future responsibilities releasing Helga to live her life without the burden of a fatherless offspring. In her desperation, all of this sounded perfect to Helga, that was of course before she felt life stir within her womb. However, by the time this occurred it was already too late. She had already moved into Steinhoring, home for the Lebensorn, and there was no possibility of turning back. The papers were signed. She could not escape. Hitler owned her unborn child.

On a cold day in January Helga’s little girl came into the world. But instead of being sheltered by her mother’s arms, she was torn away by the nurses at the home for the Lebensborn and thrust into a treacherous world where the very people sworn to protect her were not what they seemed. The little girl was growing, and she was amongst some of the cruelest people on earth and subjected daily to the ideology of the Third Reich. But when Hitler became convinced that he was indestructible and, went to war on two fronts dividing his army, Germany began to fall. The Nazi’s became fearful as America entered the war joining Churchill against them in the west, while Stalin a formidable enemy with the brutal Russian winters on his side, ripped them apart in the east. And so, the tables turned on the Third Reich. The cruel Nazi’s, who believed they could not be defeated were about to swallow their pride and surrender at the feet of the Allies. The superior race would prove to be inferior after all. Hitler’s elite would run for cover, some would commit suicide; some would be tried in Nuremberg for crimes against humanity, while others would escape with their tails tucked between their legs and head for South America or other friendly ports. But God had other plans for Helga’s tiny innocent child, who had been born on that January morning. The child’s life was about to change in a very strange but significant way. Instead of becoming whom and what the Nazi’s had hoped to create, this child would be befriended and nurtured by the most unexpected people.
