Award-Winning Author

When the ever-scrupulous and ever-caustic Mrs. Roxie Malloy leaves her employ in tears, Ellie Haskell—busy mother of twins—is forced to find another cleaning person.

With the help of her husband, Ben, her feckless cousin Freddy, and an assortment of homemade cleaning solutions, Ellie joins the C.F.C.W.A.’s roster and embarks on a brief stint as a mercenary maid—just long enough to snoop through her neighbors’ things and find out which one has more than dust bunnies and dirty dishes to hide.

“One of the best WWII books – extraordinarily well researched and written.” -R. Durden

The Second World War was a war of science, a war which could be won with new weapons.” Sir Winston Churchill

The Department of Miscellaneous Weapon Development, known colloquially as the Wheezers and Dodgers, was created by the British in 1941 in the aftermath of the Nazi victories in Europe.

For the next four years they would become instrumental in the secret war against Germany, developing a wide array of armaments to give Britain the upper hand against the might of the Axis forces.

Under the guidance of Charles Goodeve, a remarkable Canadian with a flair for picking out which invention could tip the war in the Allies’ favor, these scientists and inventors worked tirelessly, and even put their lives on the line, in the quest to give Churchill’s military the knockout weapon.

As Nevil Shute, who was an engineer with the Wheezers and Dodgers stated, “If any one quality was a common requirement for the officers in this unusual department I would say it was imagination — the imagination to look forward and to visualize what might happen.”

Not all of their inventions were successful, indeed Sir Charles Madden, who served as staff officer to the Director of the Department stated that during his time there he dealt with “a medley of suggestions ranging from the impractical to the lunatic.”

Yet, despite some mishaps, the Wheezers and Dodgers were instrumental in aiding the Allies to victory, with their degaussing method of protecting ships from mines to their Hedgehog weapon that destroyed over forty-five enemy submarines.

Secret Weapons of World War II records all of the Department’s developments through the course of the conflict, both successful and not, and is written with humor and insight.

“Their story has the fascination of the unexpected, in a British well-played spirit.” Kirkus Reviews

Gerald Pawle worked with the Wheezers and Dodgers through the course of World War Two. This work was first published under the title The Secret War: 1939-1945 in 1957. Pawle passed away in 1991.

“The book was over the top, but that’s what made it so funny! I’m talking laugh-out-loud funny!” -Book Fidelity

When Debbie de La Fontaine tries to spice up her love life by supernaturally tampering with her sex life, she is cursed to spend every future encounter in a magical place called “Sex Hell,” where the sex is ludicrous and amazing but the romance is scarce.

Her only chance for escape is through the stingy clues supplied by an obnoxious demon, and the only way to obtain the clues is by returning to Sex Hell again and again to have outrageous sexcapades with the man she most wants to avoid—or does she?

Sex Hell is an absurd comic fantasy about the confusion of relationships. How is love related to sex, and how is sex related to love—and do love and sex need to be related at all?

A good mother would never desert her children.

So she’d been told.

Countless times.

But it was exactly what Jennie had done. She had growled at her daughters, cursed her husband, and slammed the door behind her as she stomped away. Tossing her duffle in the back of her old Honda, she’d rev’d the engine and left rubber as she peeled away.

She had listed all of the reasons for what she had done, the explanations and the excuses: the demons of her bipolar disorder, the alcohol that flowed too freely at the bar where she had worked, the guys who came on to her…The list went on, but none of the entries, alone, was convincing. Even taken together, they seemed inadequate.

Nevertheless, twelve years later, sober, chaste, and on meds, she asks a judge for another chance, a chance to be a mother, a good one this time.

Her request for visitation meets a stone wall.

Her former husband, does not want to share his children with the woman who deserted them. Her daughters recall nothing good about her, nothing good, at any rate. The judge is skeptical.

Even should she convince the judge to give her visitation rights, how can she possibly convinced her children to accept her?

The two are bound together by a chain of events that was set into motion a thousand years earlier, and everything they thought they knew about themselves, their history, and their future is about to change.

Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place. That’s why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her Grandma Zelda—who is more than a little psychic– recruits her into the family’s matchmaking business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. What’s more, Gladie is also highly unqualified, having a terrible track record with romance. Still, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has her clairvoyant “gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.

When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?
