SAVING MADELINE is both heart-wrenching and humorous. In the beginning, Roxy, a na├»ve young actor arrives in Hollywood to follow her dream and escape from her mean-spirited family. When she finds herself coexisting in a cramped Los Angeles apartment with a wounded warrior and her German shepherd, tensions run high . . . And then her mother moves in—so much for escaping. Along comes the well-connected acting coach, James Jonathan Jarvis, and Roxy’s big break in showbiz: a part in a reality TV show with a wilderness survival theme. But a week before rehearsals begin, her mother disappears. Roxy’s search leads her close to Montana where she and Madeline become trapped in a real life-and-death situation. Though the daily obstacles that challenge these three women are paramount, they manage to find humor in their frequent calamities, and Roxy’s Hollywood misadventures buffer the troubling glimpses into the world of a woman whose memory is fading.


Section: Guests Come Knocking

Roxy had prepared well. She’d thought of everything, right down to the exact second the action would begin. The clock ticked, the alarm buzzed. It was time. The screaming commenced and seemed to go on forever; that was part of the plan. The door breaking, the shrieks, and growling—growling?—were not.

“Hands in the air or this dog will attack!”

Shocked by this sudden intrusion, Roxy lifted her hands and froze.

There stood a short-haired, tough-looking woman. She carried a baseball bat and looked like she’d use it. A sizeable German shepherd stood beside her baring its teeth and resembling an angry wolf.

“Ma’am,” the woman said with firm authority, “step slowly toward the dog and stand by his side. Do it.”

Ma’am? Really? “Uh, I’m not so sure about that.” The dog looked ready to lunge.

“The dog is keeping your intruder at bay. Go! Now! Stand by the dog.”

“But … but I’m the only one here.” She frowned, slowly lowering her hands.

“We’ll see about that,” the woman said. “It’s obvious you’re under a lot of stress, and you feared for your life just moments ago. For all I know, a perpetrator is hiding in the hall with a fuckin’ gun pointed at your head.”

A few seconds passed, and nobody moved. At least the dog had stopped growling. In fact, it seemed to be smiling. Even so, Roxy needed clarification. What had just happened?

Hit The Road, Jake! - The Lindsey Lark Series Book 3
Thrilling, romantic, and sprinkled with humor, HIT THE ROAD, JAKE! reinvents the ‘buddy movie’ concept with the written word … and a pretty woman. Jake and Lindsey are good at tracking down offenders responsible for petty theft and blackmail, but when new mysteries become personal—slashed tires, spattered blood, steamy love letters, a stolen pet—everything changes.

Who is this enemy that secretly harasses them from town to town? Jake calls in some favors and manages to finagle the DNA testing of several blood samples. The results are shocking, and the dangers they face become deadly.

Practically newlyweds, the couple thought they’d created the perfect win-win plan. While traveling between Tucson and Estes Park in their RV, Jake would solve embarrassing mysteries that schools wished to keep under wraps, and Lindsey, being the ‘cover’ for their presence, would conduct workshops for teachers. Then all hell broke loose.

Letters, Lovers, & Lies - The Lindsey Lark Series Book 2
Mysterious, romantic, and sprinkled with a few heartwarming students and a delightful dog, LETTERS, LOVERS, & LIES captures the importance of persistence and the power of love. Jake and Lindsey are in love, but so much stands in their way. Letters from a dead man. Unwanted advances from a transgender acquaintance. Separation and jealousy. A few things in the couple’s favor? They are smart, multi-talented, and they love to laugh.

Lindsey Lark, keynote speaker, goes on tour while her boyfriend, Jake, writes a detective novel. Sounds simple enough, but a mystery soon dominates their lives when bizarre notices of her ex-husband’s funeral arrive. Foul play is suspected and murder is on someone’s mind.

Lad, a retired Secret Service agent, is Lindsey’s right-hand man for the duration of the tour. He’s handsome, he’s a man of few words, and, as the list of threats lengthens, he takes on the role of bodyguard, much to Jake’s dismay.

Strange, threatening phone calls begin to haunt her. A stalker, perhaps?

Though she doesn’t want to be alone, she isn’t ready to go looking for new love, but men find her anyway. A handsome college student involved in some tricky human research gets into trouble in more ways than one. His inherent propensity to play detective, though helpful at times, seems to attract Murphy and his darned Law far too often … and now his eyes are on Lindsey. Will his heart follow?
