Shivers of fear and wide-eyed anticipation of what might happen in the future are just two of the responses to my new fiction books. The first murder mystery, Give ‘til it Hurts, might be fiction, but it is a hard-hitting look at domestic violence from a very personal perspective. The Book Liberators series are science fiction and illustrate what might happen if strong women become warriors in the future.

Give ‘Til It Hurts

The tangled web of lies, deceit and betrayal cannot be undone until the young executive director of the domestic violence shelter confronts her own mysterious past. And when she is accused of murder, her past threatens to overwhelm her future. This hard-hitting fictional look at domestic violence, loosely based on the author’s own experiences, pulls no punches. The story doesn’t hesitate to examine the issue from a faith-based perspective.

The White Warrior

The young, beautiful university student leads a peaceful protest movement of the Book Liberators against the American Empire’s banning of her beloved books, eventually leading to all-out rebel war. She reluctantly becomes the vengeful White Warrior, determined to stop the insidious destruction of personal freedoms, but not until she is pushed to the limits of her emotional and physical strength.

The Slave Warrior

The White Warrior leads a band of rebels struggling to restore the lost freedoms of writing, reading and religion. Now ruled by a psychotic emperor, the American Empire is falling apart and its citizens starving. The rebel army of Book Liberators is outgunned but refuses to accept defeat, even after the first White Warrior disappears into a brutal slave camp.

The Mother Warrior

Escaping after ten years in a brutal slave camp deep in the Mississippi bayou, the first White Warrior must now figure out what she will do with the rest of her life. Physically and emotionally weakened by her years as a warrior and slave, now she faces an entirely different kind of war; a war that will pit her against her family, friends and even the Book Liberators she founded.

The Daughter Warrior

Against the wishes of her mother, the White Warrior, Emily decides to fight the tyrannical king and queen of the American empire by becoming a spy. In this final Book Liberators saga, wits must trump might as the young spy tries in her own way to defeat the evil empire. The struggle becomes more difficult when she meets and falls in love with a young Marine serving in the empire’s royal guard.

A Terrible Dragon and a Jolly Pirate:
The Adventures of Archer and Smudgy

This book was written at the request of my eight-year-old grandson. When I asked him what he wanted in the story, he said, “A dragon and a pirate, and my cat Smudgy.” Who knows, maybe Archer and Smudgy have more adventures in their future! Available for $8.99 at:
