Novel #5 is Complete

I’m excited to announce that my 5th Novel, “The Cost of Our Conveniences” is complete and in final editing. It should be available before this lock-down is over. What’s it about? Funny you should ask. During the last hurricane I noticed what I thought were unusual forecasts regarding the severity of the storm. Then again, isn’t that the nature of hurricanes? They can’t decide which path to take. BUT…what if someone found a way to manipulate satellite data? Moreover, of the couple thousand satellites orbiting earth, there are a thousand or more that are obsolete and inoperable. What if…? Like the pandemic of 2020, this story is global and the impacts of someone exploiting space for gain is a reality. Who and how can we interdict such an occurrence? Greed, money, geographical and political gain, are never off the table. This is another adventure for The Hero Squad and ANDE Corporation has it’s work cut out for it trying to help and still remain in the shadows. Action, innovation, romance, family and cultural struggles, it’s in here. Everyone is watching a screen and it’s a modern day addiction. Yet it’s also necessary for commerce, health care, and education. It’s energy and it can’t be created or destroyed … just transferred. But who controls the transference?



One of the great things about Kindle type devices is you can get all the books you want without having to go out of the house. All four of my novels are still available through Amazon in both Kindle versions and paperback. I recommend you buy Alfalfa Connection and Fires of Revenge together because Fires of Revenge is as Paul Harvey would say: “The Rest of the Story”

Me The Enemy

My newest book ‘Me The Enemy’  is now available on for both the Kindle and in paperback.  This is a story built on current things happening in the world.  People are a product of their upbringing and those experiences shape the path they take as adult.  We are often our own worst enemy and this book explores how that can play out.  Even when blessed with excellence in intellect, looks, athletic abilities and personality, we can’t always escape what happened I our formative years.  Me The Enemy explores people from opposite ends of the socio-economic spectrum and how their past can make or break them.  Janell, from a privileged immigrant family, feels she is battling the ‘all boys club.’   Bill and Isaac are products of abusive foster homes, and they are desperate to escape and hold one group responsible for their troubles.  A page turner that recalls current events and also involves The Hero Squad from Alfalfa Connection and Fires of Revenge.getting ready for the military, boots


Hello readers,
I have my new book, “Me the Enemy” in the works. It will be another in the Hero Squad series and will be featuring activities associated with a lot of current day events. Looking for rhyme and reason in world politics is like looking for a formula to create a square circle. Where are Americans most vulnerable?  Are our enemies more clever and resourceful at getting to us?  Funding to terrorist is critical so how is that evolving in their camps?  This will give readers an exciting adventure and exploit possible weaknesses in our culture. Not all problems emerge from civil wars beyond our borders.

As a woman I find many spy novels catered to the male reader more then us females. But not this story! Includes some of that gooshy love and family life that held my attention. Proud of the writer for adding some stuff for the gals to enjoy! Story as a hole keeps you reading until the very last word!
