Could she possibly be responsible? Eyebrows are raised when others around her start dropping like flies—one member is poisoned, a neighbor goes missing, and the one person who sees right through Daisy Clark is killed when her car is run off the road.

The Low Carb Myth: Free Yourself from Carb Myths, and Discover the Secret Keys That Really Determine Your Health and Fat Loss Destiny
Do Carbs Make You Fat, Hungry, and Lazy?
The answer may surprise you, but the science says no! The truth is that people can be healthy and lean eating a huge variety of diets. This should tell you that the answer to better health and fat loss isn’t found in cutting one specific macronutrient from your diet, like many low-carb gurus would have you believe. So then why have low-carb diets gotten so much attention lately? Surely some of the claims about carbs, sugar, and insulin must be true, right?
Low-carbers would have you believe that all of our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate low-carb diets and that being a “fat burner” (instead of a “sugar burner”) leads to all sorts of magical effects like, boundless energy, superhuman athletic performance, better health–all while it melts off your bodyfat almost overnight.

Lieutenant Commander Jason Reynolds has had a string of bad luck lately — evident by the uncomfortable house arrest bracelet strapped to his right ankle. Worse yet, he’s relegated to his grandfather’s old house and rambling scrapyard. To complicate things, the women in his life are pulling from every direction. But It’s through a bizarre turn of events that Jason is led to a dried up subterranean aquifer hundreds of feet below ground. Here he discovers an advanced alien spacecraft, one that will propel his life in a new direction.
The adventure begins… and with it new troubles for Jason: The Craing, an unstoppable interstellar threat, is headed right for Earth. A desperate situation goes from bad to worse as the Alliance crumbles.
Captain Jason Reynolds faces new challenges, not only on Earth but from the far side of the universe as well. The only way to stop the Craing this time will be to square off with them on their home turf.
Jason’s been informed that three powerful Craing warships, having similar technology as The Lilly, will soon be en route to Earth. The Alliance must destroy the Craing’s wormhole means of distant space travel to avert Earth’s total annihilation. Unfortunately, there’s no way to reach the Craing worlds in time, at least not through conventional means.
Captain Jason Reynolds is back! In the third installment of the Scrapyard Ship sci-fi adventure series, Space Vengeance, Jason, his family, and The Lilly’s crew face the impending destruction of their internal nano-devices. What’s worse, what remains of the Craing fleet, some 1500 warships, is back and headed straight toward the already decimated planets within Allied space. In what looks to be a one-way suicide mission, Jason must leave Nan and Mollie behind on Earth and out of harm’s way.
While war rages on sixty light years from Earth, maniacal space raider Captain Stalls and hundreds of his pirated warships close in on Earth. Stalls knows exactly what he wants: to find and kill Captain Reynolds and take the beautiful Nan Reynolds for his own.
Welcome to the fourth installment of the Scrapyard Ship series, Realms of Time. Captain Jason Reynolds and his team are up against a new, and unexpected foe—an adversarial force that has every intention of aligning with the powerful and dreaded Craing Empire.
The enemy strikes from Earth’s high orbit, deploying five time-shifting spheres. The spheres are strategically positioned to link-up and set Earth’s clock back 100 years into the past. But when that course of action is interrupted by The Lilly’s crew, the results become far worse. Fluctuating time realms rapidly spread across the globe and threaten to rip the planet apart. Join Jason, Billy, Traveler, Ricket and Dira on their mission as they literally travel to the ends of time to bring Earth back to the twenty-first century.
Truly dark times have come to the Allied forces, the crew of The Lilly, and Earth — we knew they were coming but nothing will have prepared you for this …
With the introduction of Craing commander Ot-Mul, there’s a new standard for evil that will not only shape the rest of this series, but Science Fiction literature as a whole.
