Kate’s Escape from the Billable Hour

“….ultimately endearing and always entertaining. Enjoyable … with a rollicking, humorous plot.” -Kirkus Review

Kate Billings is a Red Bull-dependent, yoga-hating attorney at Krapp & Lipschitz, L.L.P., Arizona’s largest and worst-dressed law firm. At first blush, Kate leads an enviable life.

At only 26, she earns a six-figure salary, owns a quaint downtown bungalow, and has managed to shed the 80 pounds that have plagued her for most of her adulthood.

A devastating performance review by firm partners Krapp, Butts, and Waddleberger, however, calls Kate’s chosen career into question.

Her confusion is compounded by a stranger’s innocent inquiry: “Are you happy?” Finally, when Kate receives her annual bonus — consisting of a smoked ham and skin concealer — she cracks.

Upon realizing that she has been passively allowing her life to unfold under the belief that at some point things would just click into being perfect, Kate ransacks the partners’ offices, quits her job, and buys a one-way ticket to Barcelona, planning to stalk (“it’s not ‘stalking,’ it’s ‘reconnaissance'”) the Spanish exchange student she has been secretly in love with since high school.

“The contemporary literary world of crime fiction is replete with outstanding authors and characters.” -shayne q.

Madras in the 1920s. The British are slowly losing the grip on the subcontinent. The end of the colonial enterprise is in sight and the city on India’s east coast is teeming with intrigue.

A grisly murder takes place against the backdrop of political tension and Superintendent Le Fanu, a man of impeccable investigative methods, is called in to find out who killed a respectable young British girl and dumped her in a canal, her veins clogged with morphine.

As Le Fanu, a man forced to keep his own personal relationship a secret for fear of scandal in the face British moral standards, begins to investigate, he quickly slips into a quagmire of Raj politics, rebellion and nefarious criminal activities that threaten not just to bury his case but the fearless detective himself.

The first Detective Le Fanu Adventure, A Madras Miasma, tells a classic tale of murder, corruption and intrigue with a sharp eye on British colonial politics and race relations.

It is a story that, like its main protagonist, has its heart firmly in the right place.

Amazon Bestselling Author

The Quixotics is a tale of coming of age in the Baby Boomer generation. The time is 1970 and three young men have returned from military service in Vietnam. Like other returning warriors of that era, they have become disenchanted with a country whose citizens spit on and curse returning warriors.

Restless and troubled by what they see as the loss of individuality in an increasingly one-size-fits-all society, they decide to escape it and create an environment more to their liking.

They pool what little cash they have and acquire a boat that is barely seaworthy.

The plan is to sail leisurely through the Caribbean, living life on their own terms one idyllic day at a time, determined to find adventure and right any wrongs they find along the way.

Combative with society and each other, they set off in the small, cramped boat with no sailing or navigational skills.

To earn some badly needed cash, they grudgingly agree to deliver a cargo of weapons to anti-Castro insurgents in Cuba. The start is rough and the voyage rougher, but all hell breaks loose once they reach the island.

Captured by Castro forces, they are imprisoned in an old Spanish dungeon. Later, they escape and join up with the rebels in the Sierra Maestra Mountains. Here, their talents for guerilla warfare, honed in the jungles of Vietnam, assert themselves.

More than two hundred years into the future, human beings are an endangered species. The planet has been battered by war, its inhabitants plagued by disease and death. Few humans survived and remained unaffected.

Most changed dramatically and evolved into something else entirely. Irrevocable alterations caused by chemical warfare have created a new species. North America is in ruins and has been overtaken. Humanity has fallen at the hands of mutants known as Urthmen.

Seventeen year-old Avery is alive and unchanged. But she has not been immune to the harshness of the new world. She has lived on the run for much of her life, in terror.

After losing her father, Avery is the sole guardian of her eight-year-old sister, June. Avery is now charged with June’s safety as well as her own, a nearly impossible task.

Forced to hide deep in the forest and away from the cities overrun by Urthmen, Avery and her sister are constantly hunted. Danger awaits them at every turn. They fear they are the only human beings left, that they are the last of their kind.

But are they truly alone?
