I believe that ordinary people are capable of remarkable feats. I’ve always believed that given the right circumstances people can tap into the well of limitless possibilities. I saw this more than once as an athlete and coach many years ago. I’ve seen it more recently through the anecdotes people post on social media.
Despite this, we are all inundated with negativity and bad news stories every day. And this has seeped into entertainment as television series have become darker, filled with tragedy and angst-ridden plots that drag on season after season.
This is not my idea of entertainment and I’m betting it isn’t yours either. I want to offer you something different and invite you to find out more about me and the stories I tell….
For example, this, my latest book:
Now, here’s what a couple of folks think of my storytelling.:
Great addition to the Children of the wild series. I was hoping you would add an herbivore (that’s not an insane elk) to your were family. What a fun story. Please keep them coming.
Keep putting out the children of the wild series love them. Ronnie and Igor are great along with Derek and Jillian. It’s nice to see the other characters as well. Can’t wait to see what comes next in the wild series and I have no problem recommending this book to my friends.
So, my point is, there’s a few folks out there who like a story with a more upbeat ending. How about you, do you prefer happy endings, or do you prefer dark and foreboding cliffhangers? Drop a comment, let me know what you really like.
Well, my last post gave you an idea of what was coming. Now you can see for yourself. Deliberate Love is here, and here’s how to find it. Give it a read and let me know what you think of the whole concept.
So, there we are, the second of the (self-help) books. hehehe
On to other news, we’re hoping to have a new installment in the Children of the Wild series soon. I’ll keep you posted on that.
So long for now
In keeping with the season of gift giving and sales, I now offer the following three books on greatly reduced prices. The sale will last until the New Year. These are three of my favorites. Enjoy!
Each book is available at your favorite outlet. I list one for each book.
So, on that note, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Words can have a great deal of power, and words well written even more so. I try to use my words to entertain, to carry the reader from this world of stress to a different world, give them an adventure, take them away for a few hours. Sometimes I get it right, and sometimes I don’t. This time I think I got it right. I know each person experiences a story differently, and that experience can be good or bad. Here’s a couple of reviews of The Oregon Incident which tell me that, in these folks opinion, I got it right.

I’ve got to say this one brought tears to my eyes, yes cried like a baby, but it’s such a good story. Book five is just as good as the other four, great characters and the new characters are just as interesting.
What a great series

This, as all the rest of the Children of the Wild, was a great story. Familiar characters and new characters all blending into new experiences. Lady Hawk is turning into a very strong character in her own right. This story brings Mobutu’s actions back into focus. Touching once again with the atrocities of his madness and bringing the wolves & vampires to the front defending themselves and the humans.

I’ll tell you where it began, and how, but it was long ages before she arrived here in our midst. The blood drinker, vampire. How did she become what she is, how did she get this way? It was a collision of events, and against seemingly impossible odds, it happened. The first immortal was created. It would be millenia before another appeared.
To get a small sense of the endless years, the loneliness, the hunger, the driving need for blood, you’ll have to read her story. Therein you will learn of how she came to be, and of how she managed to survive into this age. You will also get a glimpse of what it will take for her to continue to exist unseen, her and her offspring, for she is no longer the lone vampire.
Originally this was meant to be a stand alone book, but so many of you encouraged me to write more I did a sequel. Yeah, you guessed it, I’m currently working on book five of the series. We hope to get it out this fall.
So, go ahead, check out the woman from the distant past. Step out of this world and into another for a few hours, share the adventure with her.
Until next time,
I know, it’s been a while since I posted. Truth is, life got in the way and I didn’t have a lot to report. However, today, let me tell you a ghost story. High on a hill above the village where I grew up sat an old house. It looked over the whole village and the harbour beyond, the driveway was lined with maple trees. The house was occupied by an old man who passed away when I was a teenager. (Long long ago in a galaxy far far away) Every summer his grandson, a piper, would come to visit and greet the dawn with the pipes. I truly cherish the memory of that sound.
When I first began writing seriously, I wrote a romance story featuring the house and surrounding landscape. I also added the ghost with a bagpipe. The resulting book was called (of course) Ghost Piper. I self published it years ago. Recently we took it down, gave it a tune up, a fresh edit, and an awesome new cover. Here’s where to find it.
If you enjoy a gentle romance, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one. Go ahead, it’s a perfect weekend read.
Okay, now, for what’s new and coming up. We have a new book in the Children of the Wild series coming soon. I’m hoping to see it out by the middle of May. It’s got vampires, werewolves, werehawks, secret agents, and a bunch more of the strange and unusual. Next post I’ll give you a peek inside the pages.
So for now
Well, I have to admit I’m feeling good, smug even, now that we have finished updating the entire St. John’s series of romances. They’ve all got new edits, and awesome new covers. The last one was Wildflower, my favorite, which just went live again. About twenty years ago I fell in love with an old house by the sea. She was a real beauty and indeed, inspired the setting for this story. You can read all about her here.
Get your copy today so you’ve got the whole set.
Okay, what I’m working on now. The second book in the Elvish Chronicles has gone from the editor to the publisher. We’re still looking for the right artwork for the cover, but we expect the book to arrive on the virtual shelves later this month. The current manuscript in progress on my computer is the next story in the Children of the Wild series. I’ll tell you more about that one as it grows.
So, that the news from me today, the hurricane force winds didn’t blow me away and I’m still working.
As you know, we’ve been updating some of my older works, most recently, the St. John’s series of romances. I’m happy to report that we took Wildflower and tweaked it a bit so it’s no longer a stand alone novel, it’s now book #7 in the St. John’s series. It should be out any day now. So, here’s what to look for, the new cover.
Okay, with any luck at all this one should be live by the weekend or early next week.
Now, for what’s on the horizon. Book #2 of the Elvish Chronicles, The Road Home, should appear later this month. That’s in the hands of the editor right now. Currently, I’m working on the next tale from the Children of the Wild. Shooting to have it out before early summer.
Well, that’s it for now.
I gotta tell ya, I am seriously excited about this one. Book six of the Children of the Goddess series is now live. I’ve been waiting and hinting at this one for months. Okay, shutting up now. Here she is and where to find her. She’s the Fallen Angel: The Dark Priestess.
Sometimes the pain is too great. Sometimes the desire for vengeance runs too deep. In the blink of an eye she changes. The Priestess of the dark known as the Fallen Angel is hunting now, killing. Nothing can stop her, not even the goddess who made her. Is she coming for you?
Get your copy today. I know I am, can’t wait to see this one on my bookshelf.
