Crime Action Fiction

They went on vacation. Not everyone made it back.

The Palmers went to the lake for a week of fun in the sun. But Alex Palmer had an agenda. He wanted his brother to reconcile with their hypercompetitive father. He wanted his daughter to break up with her shady boyfriend. Most of all, Alex wanted them to be a family one more time before he faced his predicament at home.

Evil incarnate and a brutal double murder shifted Alex’s focus from wants to needs. He needed to keep his family safe. He needed to find her. He needed to know what happened at the lake.

His pastor often said, “God won’t give you more than you can bear.”

This had nothing to do with God.

Science Fiction Romance

Alex has more money than he knows what to do with, but he’s impossibly bored with his life because nothing seems to fulfill him and hold his interest. When his friend Kevin recommends an app that can deliver anything you ask for, provided you can pay for it, it’s exactly the spike of novelty he was looking for to make things a little more interesting.

The app is incredible, and delivers on every request he makes no matter how outlandish it is. Alex starts to wonder what the limits of this weird service might be, and makes the most ridiculous request he can think of: He wants to actually experience life as a woman and see if it’s more interesting than his current life.

He didn’t expect the app to actually be able to grant his wish, but he soon finds out just how wrong he was! Unfortunately, this wish cost him all of his money. Now he’s broke, female, and needs to work with Kevin to figure out who the shady forces behind this app are so that he can persuade them to undo his request and get him his money back.

In a final defining moment near the end of his tour, Mackinack is forced to decide his path in a split second. Will he return to the man he was before the war, or will he become the killer the war created?

Maggie Thomas doesn’t know the first thing about being a private eye. She quickly discovers that running her uncle’s faltering Miami Beach P.I. agency is nothing like watching detective show reruns. Even the private eye app on her iPhone can’t help.

The danger escalates when another homicide victim washes up on the shore and now someone wants to stop Maggie from solving the murders. With the help of her knitting needle–wielding, orthopedic shoe–wearing assistant Dorothy Raye, Maggie must solve the case before she’s the next victim of this crime wave.

Psychological Thrillers

A wave of babynappings has terrified parents from San Diego to Portland. And when the Pied Piper — named for the penny flute he leaves in the cribs of his victims — claims his first Seattle infant, the investigation draws in homicide detective Lou Boldt. Assigned temporarily to Intelligence so he can spend more time with his kids while his wife is hospitalized for chemotherapy, Boldt’s role is to keep the FBI out of the Seattle Police Department’s way.

But FBI special agent Gary Flemming is a tough adversary — so tough it almost seems as if he’s intentionally sabotaging the SPD’s investigation. Then the Pied Piper snatches Boldt’s own daughter, promising that unless Boldt throws both the Feds and the SPD off his trail he’ll never see his child again. Caught between his professional obligations and his fear for Sarah’s life, Boldt launches his own private manhunt with the help of John La Moia, his replacement in homicide, and police psychologist Daphne Matthews, his closest friend in the department.
