Hard-Boiled Mysteries

A homicide detective
hunts a ritualistic killer
inside a city high school.

Mackenzie August’s new life doesn’t suit him. When he quit the LAPD to open a private cop shop, he expected to settle naturally into a quieter lifestyle, hiring out to law firms, home by dinner. Now, however, the feisty detective is bored and missing the action of a hot homicide investigation.

Sheriff Stackhouse comes knocking at the right time.

Three teenage girls have been murdered in the past twelve months, victims of a brutal rite-of-passage ceremony. Clues indicate the killer has ties to the inner city school, but the police can’t catch him. They need a man on the inside. They need Mackenzie, an outsider, to go undercover and find the killer.

An impossible task, Mackenzie would be a bull in a china shop. But if anyone can pull it off…

Romantic Comedy

He can solve the mysteries of the universe, but can he unlock the secrets of her heart?

As a celebrated astronaut, I’ve unraveled the enigmas of the cosmos. But the puzzle of what makes relationships work? That’s always eluded me. I’m more comfortable studying life’s building blocks than navigating the perplexing world of human emotions. After a scandal at my job, I return to my small hometown a disgraced outcast. But then I meet Abigail Baker.

My captivating new neighbor is everything I’m not – warm, emotionally attuned, and able to charm an entire town with her vibrant spirit. With her quick wit and generous heart, she sees right through my gruff exterior to the wounded man beneath. The more time we spend together, the more I begin to hope that maybe I’m not a lost cause.

But I’ve never been good at love, and when ghosts from my past threaten our budding connection, I’ll have to prove to Abigail, and myself, that I’m willing to change and open my heart. Is it too late for this science nerd to learn the equations of love and become the partner she deserves?

Biographies & Memoirs of Authors

A superb autobiography by one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century

Simone de Beauvoir’s Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter offers an intimate picture of growing up in a bourgeois French family, rebelling as an adolescent against the conventional expectations of her class, and striking out on her own with an intellectual and existential ambition exceedingly rare in a young woman in the 1920s.

Beauvoir vividly evokes her friendships, love interests, mentors, and the early days of the most important relationship of her life, with fellow student Jean-Paul Sartre, against the backdrop of a turbulent political time.
