“Anyone who has dealt with, or will soon deal with, the death of a parent will find some solace, understanding, and companionship in this perceptive book, which is, in the end, more about living than about dying.” -The Washington Post

A poignant meditation on the bonds between mothers and daughters—and the inescapable effects of time—from the author of A Wrinkle in Time.

In the second memoir of her Crosswicks Journals, Madeleine L’Engle chronicles a season of extremes. Four generations of family have gathered at Crosswicks, her Connecticut farmhouse, to care for L’Engle’s ninety-year-old mother. As summer days fade to sleepless nights, her mother’s health rapidly declines and her once astute mind slips into senility. With poignant honesty, L’Engle describes the gifts and graces, as well as the painful emotional cost, of caring for the one who once cared for you.

As she spends her days with a mother who barely resembles the competent and vigorous woman who bore and raised her, L’Engle delves into her memories, reflecting on the lives of the strong women in her family’s history. Evoking both personal experiences and universal themes, The Summer of the Great-Grandmother takes an unflinching look at diminishment and death, all the while celebrating the wonder of life.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L’Engle including rare images from the author’s estate.

“Fast-paced and scintillating with plenty of romantic angst, this novel is an ideal read for anyone who likes their romance on the steamy side.” -Publishers Weekly

Award-Winning Author

New Jersey Hurricanes striker Logan Hart lives for the grind of training, the adrenaline of competition, and all the perks of the road—until his ex hands him a baby and tells Logan to raise her on his own. He’s eager to pass this bundle of joy into more capable hands and get back to his hard-playing, hard-partying ways. But when a beautiful, blond drill sergeant of a nanny turns Logan’s life upside down, he sets a new goal: winning her heart.

Isabella Bennett takes pride in teaching the rich and famous how to become loving families. Her no-nonsense style is just what Logan and his crying, copper-haired cutie need. So why can’t she get the image of Logan’s tanned, muscular body out of her head? Isabella’s here to whip a new father into shape, not fall for a sexy ladies’ man. But their chemistry is too tantalizing to ignore, much like the temptation to trust someone with her deepest secrets—and embrace a loving family all her own.

“Three great books. Each one gets better. I read them all in just a couple of days because I could not put them down.” -Sharon

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

Three murder mysteries — but the theme always comes down to sex and money…

The First 3 Novels In The Burnside Mystery Series (Box Set # 1) Includes:


On a dark Los Angeles freeway, someone fires a gunshot at a local football star.

His family turns to Private Investigator Burnside, a former football star himself, who has recently left the LAPD. As he battles his way through the investigation, Burnside’s own life is repeatedly placed in jeopardy, and the body count starts to pile up.

Burnside encounters beautiful girls, wayward athletes and overworked cops on his way toward finding a killer who knows he’s looking for them. And as he navigates this perilous path, Burnside also comes to grips with a betrayal from his past, one that keeps returning to him, no matter how hard he tries to avoid it.

Set against the sun drenched backdrop of a hot Los Angeles summer, Post Pattern provides readers with an engaging, action-packed story. The novel delivers a smart, sexy plot with crackling dialogue and fascinating characters.

FADE ROUTE (Book 2):

A candidate for mayor has been murdered and there’s one obvious suspect.

But Burnside, the former football star turned private investigator, pushes forward into a harrowing investigation that reveals more and more possible culprits, all with their own motives. As the action intensifies, Burnside himself becomes embroiled in a case which goes beyond just one murder. And when the police suspect he’s a person of interest, Burnside must race against time to find the killer.

With little more to go on than his gut feeling, Burnside pokes at everything around him. Desperately trying to untangle a web of deceit that threatens to destroy him personally, he is also faced with a scenario that could take down an entire community..


It starts with some missing warehouse inventory, but the case quickly moves beyond simple larceny. And when theft turns to murder, the stakes rise dramatically, and the action intensifies.

The story leads Private Investigator Burnside onto the trail of some people who will do anything to acquire money — and they will use any means necessary to keep it. And as he plunges into the investigation, Burnside also has to make a life altering decision about his own future.

Interweaving the world of business with the world of football, Bubble Screen is set in the heart of Los Angeles. It is a captivating thrill ride that combines fascinating characters, wry humor, and an explosive ending that is both stunning and unexpected.

Olivia Palmer is the perfect daughter, prepared to marry the heir to the neighboring plantation for convenience, despite her longing for true love.

Jessica Carter is the belle of Atlanta society and the target of many a determined suitor, all of whom have failed to catch and convince her that they could provide her with the sort of happy marriage her parents share.

When their paths intertwine in the busy port city of Charleston, both of their love lives take an extraordinary turn. One twenty years in the making—because it turns out the girls are twins who were separated at birth. But instead of a joyful family reunion, they experience a case of mistaken identity instead: one that leads to Olivia being kidnapped and swept up in a dashing pirate captain’s quest, while Jessica is thrown into dangerous waters of her own as she tries to navigate her twin sister’s life of plantations and politics.

Still, despite the danger, there may be love waiting for them in their new lives, too—the true kind.

But only if they can be brave enough to navigate the twisting, unexpected paths that stretch before them.

Fitheach blood doesn’t just run through the veins––it’s a binding contract that can never be broken.

Alex Kelley vanished twenty-one years ago––the night her mother was murdered. When she comes home to New York City, she wants just two things: a little peace, and answers about the unsolved murder and why she was abandoned in the middle of America at the age of eight.

Greer Sinclair, an enigmatic stranger who knows a little bit more than he should, just might give her both––and more if she’ll let him.

What is she?

What is he?

Who is this beguiling satyr who keeps coming between them?

She attracts the otherworldly like moths to a flame. And why does every stranger on the streets of Manhattan want a piece of her and that pendant hanging around her pretty little neck?

Maybe the answers are in a peculiar shop in the heart of Greenwich Village where ghosts, memories, and secrets are bursting from the walls and the books and the one person who knows her best.

The line between the mundane and supernatural worlds is starting to blur. Which side will she choose? Which would you?
