The quest to break a mummy’s curse turns dangerous when a peer ends up dead.

Miles Lawrence Hawkins, fifth Earl of Archewyne, is alone and the last of his line, save for a young daughter, and he’s made peace with that…Yet unexpectedly finding an attractive female thief in his library gives him doubts. Drawn into the lady’s insane plot to retrieve various stolen mummies from around London—including the British Museum—he accompanies her merely to see what will happen next. Being captivated by her quest and intrigued by her talent for skirting the law is a much needed distraction from the stress of his own life’s misfortunes.

Lady Emmaline Darling, skilled thief and only child to the Earl of St. Ives, is under a mummy’s curse. Believing herself damned due to her father’s penchant for removing antiquities from Egypt, she’s vowed to return a pair of mummies to their eternal resting place in order to save his life and her own. Being caught by Miles wasn’t in her plan, and neither was falling for his charm, but she’ll do anything to see he’s free of the curse as well, for their histories are too intricately connected for his ills to just be bad luck.

When a peer with ties to them both ends up dead and Emmaline’s jewelry is found at the scene, Miles is honor bound to offer for her and lend her his protection. Despite her refusal, desire pulls at them and scandal surrounds them, and when Miles is summoned to once more embark upon a secret mission for the Crown, he must shed everything that will become a liability, but keeping Emmaline out of trouble—and out of his mind—is easier said than done.

Jaggar is a half-wolf, half-mountain lion shifter, but his halves don’t make a whole. Instead, they form the beast, a misshapen killing machine that terrifies even the hard-charging wolf shifters of the KSRT, especially after the mauling.

“Jaggar has tragic down,” his friend says about him, which must be why his one true mate, Leilani, is also steeped in tragedy. She’s a time-traveler. In fact, our boys in Serenity owe their very future to her. But what she has done for them has robbed her of her sight, and her sanity.

When Jaggar and Leilani meet in the forest, her eyes flashing silver, his beast in complete control, it seems only a miracle can keep them together.

“On the surface it appears a simple story about a teenage outsider, who copes by living within his own imagination, but Calabash is so much more, a commentary on how we and society needs its thinkers and a place in which they can dream.” -Teresa P.

Multi Award-Winning Author

Kay Goodwin is a sixteen-year-old boy with a smart mouth and too much imagination, trapped in the most dismal place in England at the worst possible time: the early seventies. Marooned in the rundown seaside resort of Cole Bay, with its crumbling pier and grumbling pensioners, Kay experiences each day as a horrible comedy of errors—until he discovers a faraway land with characters who are impossibly exotic yet strangely familiar. In the kingdom of Calabash, he can have everything he’s ever wanted from life. There’s only one small problem: Calabash doesn’t technically exist.

In a country that’s still hungover from the sixties, Kay finds it all too easy to retreat from reality. But he’s prepared to risk everything to find out what makes him different, what his life really holds, and what happens to those who believe in the impossible.

“I loved all the characters in this story and they way the story flowed. I definitely look forward to reading more books by this author.” -Miss J.

Shea Ellis doesn’t have time for love — all the Boston Brawlers captain wants is one last shot at the Cup before he retires. Besides, after his ex-wife did him dirty, the single dad isn’t sure if he could love again. Hell, he’d be happy just to find a decent nanny to help with his three kids.

Sure, the latest nanny to get a try-out, Brynn, is a babe. But the hottest thing about the bright-eyed twenty-something isn’t her sizzling figure — it’s how fast his kids fall for her.

For a grizzled veteran, it’s a pointless crush on a girl he knows he shouldn’t have. And with the Brawlers marching towards the playoffs, the last thing he needs is a distraction. So why can’t he get the cutie out of his mind?

Can the hockey legend keep his eyes on the ice … and his hands off the nanny?

Brynn Conley never expected to nanny for her childhood crush. The pretty-boy rookie whose poster she painted with lipstick kisses all those years ago? He’s a rugged man now. A salt-and-pepper single dad struggling with a troubled teen daughter and two wild twin boys.

The hockey star has aged like fine wine, but Brynn’s not looking for love — she’s got a job to do. And to Shea’s delight, she’s great with kids. It’s a cruel irony for a young woman who can’t have any children of her own.

Brynn knows she shouldn’t hook up with the athlete — the last thing she’d ever want to do is confuse the kids. But when her hunky boss wraps his big hockey hands around her waist, will she insist that their relationship remain professional? Or will it be the start of an ice-melting romance?

Better Off Dead – Amazon

“Katy Munger has a formula – witty dialog, unforgettable characters, believable plot with twists and turns. Every Casey Jones mystery is better than the last.” -Robert R.

She’s trapped in her own house with a posse of bodyguards…and she’s still not safe…

Katy Munger’s clever female PI is big, bad, sarcastic, and nobody to mess with. So how does she manage to be so loveable?

For one thing, her witty quips are good for at least a laugh a page; for another, she’s as transparent as a jelly glass—underneath the mouth and muscles she’s as soft as the stuff that came in the glass.

You’ve got to love a tough woman sleuth who speaks of her “refrigerator butt” and “thunder thighs” the way other characters might mention their hands or feet—absolutely without judgment. That is, unless she’s being grateful—Casey Jones is fully aware those thunder thighs are perfect pistons for the well-placed kick,

In this one, she’s got a client who’s really touched her–Helen McInnes, a rape victim who barely escaped with her life and now suffers such severe agoraphobia she can’t go out. Her life is suddenly like some kind of hideous instant replay–she’s receiving anonymous threats that Casey and her oversize P.I. partner, Bobby, take so seriously they both move in with her.

But each is part of a couple, and so Bobby’s girl friend comes too, along with Casey’s boy friend and their dog. When the threats get even worse, and a local woman is murdered, the gardener moves in a few Mexican friends as well. It would almost be a jolly house party if Helen weren’t terrified for her life.

And if her rape weren’t just one of a series. Helen knows exactly who attacked her– a professor of psychopathology, who was tried for it, got away with it and who, she’s sure, is still getting away with it.

On its face, he case would seem simple,—all Casey has to do is go undercover as a student and get the perp to take the bait. But it’s anything but simple—there’s another suspect who seems as dangerous as the first. Then Helen, despite having half of North Carolina as bodyguards, is kidnapped.

Love. Honor. Protect.

As an Environmental Studies major, Allie knows the planet is in trouble—a series of natural disasters recently rocked the northern hemisphere, and species across the globe are going extinct. What Allie doesn’t know is that her world’s decline is a result of an ancient battle called the Night War—the Norse goddess Nott’s crusade to control the weakest of the light realms. And Allie most definitely doesn’t know that her existence is the only thing stopping Nott from dragging the earth into total darkness.

When four gorgeous guys show up claiming to be Allie’s Asgardian protectors, she thinks they’re delusional. And when they order her to hunt down the pieces of an immortal weapon, she’s convinced they’re insane. But when Allie’s attacked, the guys’ crazy stories of demigods and dark elves begin coming together. And Allie’s not sure what scares her more—losing her life to the Goddess of Night . . . or losing her heart to one of her protectors.

Let the hunt begin.

According to the front-page photo in the (New York) Daily News, my father was “Murdered Gangland Style”. I was three years old.

The assassination was most likely ordered by a mob insurance broker in order to collect on a large life insurance policy that my father provided as collateral for a business loan. After my father’s death, my distraught mother began a downward spiral into substance abuse from which she never recovered. The insurance broker, later convicted of another killing while under witness protection, was never charged with my father’s murder.

Based on those events, I’ve written a time-travel novel, “A Tale of Two Times,” about how a middle-aged son battles to save his younger parents’ previously doomed lives.

In present-day Florida, Billy Volante leans against a large oak tree in his backyard, only to keep falling—through the tree — into 1961, exactly fifty-six years into the past, into the same Gulf Coast resort town where he now resides and where his parents took winter vacations.

Billy and his free-spirited girlfriend, Carrie Anne, decide to pose as a married couple to warn his young father, Johnny Volante, of the looming 1964 murder. Seeking to build a friendship before revealing his identity, the older Billy takes his father on a fishing trip, only to stumble upon a vacationing mob attorney, Herman Goldman, who will order the future murder.

When Goldman meets Billy, things change.

Will Johnny Volante believe Billy, a man more than twice his age, is his son?

If Billy saves his father’s life, what becomes of his future and the future of the girl he loves?

Will Goldman complicate things, even more, by adding another target to Billy’s lifesaving mission?

Obviously, there’s only one way to find out…
