Can beauty survive life’s harshest realities?

A mystery unfolds in this contemporary take on Eleanor Porter’s beloved literary classic tale of ten-year-old David, a luminously gifted musician. Why would David’s father, a virtuoso violinist, have raised his prodigy son in seclusion on a mountaintop? Long-hidden secrets unravel when the father dies en route to introduce his guileless son to the people of the valley below.

Radiantly naive, David enters a small town orphaned and alone, knowing only his first name and nothing of his heritage. All David knows is what his father has taught him–only what is beautiful and good, and nothing of the evils of the world he is about to encounter.

Through a final letter, David’s father leaves his son with a challenge. David must discover his purpose: the beautiful work he is meant to do in the world. With his violin eager to express what words cannot, David joyously searches out his true calling. The boy’s unsettling wondrous view of the world makes him a problem child to those more consumed with practical, modern living. His startling oddity fuels the town’s drive to solve the puzzle of his presence there and arrange for placement elsewhere.

All the while, curiosity leads David to question those he meets about what work they do to make the world a better place. Workaholic farmer Simeon Holly begrudgingly houses David at the insistence of his desperately lonely wife, Ellen. Single mother Tina Glaspell barely makes ends meet, toiling as a housekeeper. Former lawyer, Jack Gurnsey has abandoned his career in the city to rear his much younger sister. Jack’s childhood sweetheart, heiress Barbara Holbrook, has everything but purpose in her life, let alone love.

As Jack probes the enigma of who David is, the secrets of David’s secluded upbringing come to light. But relationships, lives, and livelihoods hang in the balance. Will the world’s harsh realities threaten David’s luminous spirit? Or could this boy have a life-changing impact on everyone he meets?

“It’s very well written with smooth dialog and a great cast of characters.” -Marlene W.

Love cynic Sandra Carmichael is one more failed relationship older and swearing off men for good. Not that she has time for a man anyway. Between graduate school, work, and keeping her younger brother out of trouble, she’s lucky if she sleeps. Determined to stop her brother’s downward spiral, Sandra aims to eliminate the negative influences in his life. And topping her most unwanted list is her brother’s boss—the imposing, tattooed, and evasive Nick Tomaras.

No stranger to the darker side of life, Nick does what he has to do to help his family and justifies his actions to no one. The last thing he wants or needs is to answer to his errand-boy’s meddling sister. No matter how sexy she is.

But when Sandra and her brother find themselves in grave danger, Nick gets more involved than he ever intended, and Sandra must decide if she can place her faith in the one man she hoped never to see again.

“Wow-wow-wow!!! You will love this twisty tale” -CGH

Kitty and Roni are building their fledgling investigative agency by following workers’ comp cheats. Every PI’s dream of catching real criminals seems to be coming true when they begin to suspect one of their targets is engaged in more nefarious activities than just a bogus comp claim. Their cat and mouse game gets twisted when they realize they are the ones being stalked.

A personal and potentially lethal inquiry emerges after Roni’s father marries a woman with a checkered past, and they fear he has found his Worse Than Being Alone. When their investigation points to a shady past involving a trail of life insurance payouts and dead husbands, they wonder if Dad has married a Black Widow or an extremely unlucky woman.

As that case boils over, along comes the most talented con artist of them all. After his angry employer hires them to check him out, Kitty and Roni slowly come to realize he has the makings of a master criminal. They uncover numerous identities along with multiple workers’ comp claims. Then here are his almost daily trips to the same bank wearing different disguises.

Surprises abound as Kitty and Roni break up a sex slave ring, thwart a bank robbery, nab a shoplifter, and document a Black Widow’s treachery. A sudden death leaves them stunned as they second-guess their activities, forcing them to confront a murderer.

How to win an election:

1. Shake hands.
2. Kiss babies.
3. Travel through time.

“Politics is more difficult than physics,” said Albert Einstein. Now that we can time travel, this is no longer true.

All the State House gossips go abuzz when an influential senator forms an alliance with Rep. Frannie Upwood, the capital’s most famous underachiever and favorite butt of jokes. Why his sudden interest in such a lightweight politician?

It’s up to Lars Uxbridge, the senator’s disloyal staffer, to find out, after he joins a network of political spies. What Lars discovers is a secret far beyond anything other state reps can muster. To get ahead in politics, Frannie’s got something better than snappy slogans, wealthy donors, and door-to-door volunteers.

She’s got a time machine.

Frannie shows that when you’re armed with time travel, you’re the star athlete in a game where the world is your playing field, you make your own rules, and you always beat the shot clock.

But as Frannie will learn, this game has opponents to contend with. Rivals who might not play fair. When the prizes are enormous power, money, and control of time itself, watch out for cheat moves and low blows…
