When I find a writer I like, I want to find out all of the books they have written and read more!
Now granted, I write cross-genre and even non-fiction, but still. As the books pile up (and they will – my goal for 2018 is to complete and publish three), there will be more and more to read. And I’m going to make it very easy for you!

In the final days of the 21st century, Daniel Medry and a crew of brilliant and talented scientists and researchers leave Earth on a mission to the Gliese system – the first extra-solar journey of its kind.
Shortly after their departure, a terrible virus is unleashed upon Earth, highly infectious and nearly 100% fatal.
Soon the colonists will learn that they are some of the last unaffected humans left.
And if the challenge of establishing a colony on a distant alien world and re-creating the human race wasn’t enough, someone on board is trying to kill them all.
Will Daniel and the rest of Calypso’s crew survive the journey?
Available on Kindle and in paperback formats.

The War on Drugs: An Old Wives Tale
Part memoir, part current affairs, part argument for legalization – The War on Drugs is a MUST READ for those who believe that the war on drugs only happens to “those people” in “that part of town.”
Written from the point of view of a wife and mother, The War On Drugs: An Old Wives’ Tale examines the pros and cons of marijuana prohibition, drug diversion programs, and challenges the reader to define the nature of addiction and other pre-conceived notions.
Early reviews have included:
“Written with the humor of hindsight, yet the abject horror of getting caught in the cross fire of the so-called War On Drugs comes through with crystal clarity. For anyone that has any doubt about the truth of the matter, it becomes abundantly clear that the war on drugs is really a war on people, – good wholesome people that care for their children and make a positive contribution to their community. This is a must read. The War on Drug’s: An Old Wives’ Tale lays bare the absurdity of Marijuana Prohibition, the lies and injustice of our Legal System, and the unscientific, unethical nature of ‘The Recovery Industry.’ Read it. Believe it. And be warned.”
“I live in the county this book takes place in. I drive by the courthouse mentioned often. I never knew anything like this was going on in my area. It was devastating to read, but devastating in the way we need to be devastated in order for our nation to see progress. I appreciated the ability to step inside a real family going through this. That personal connection made the book feel relatable, and it was easy, as a fellow mother, to picture myself living this nightmare if my life had gone a different direction. The day by day format of the book works well for demonstrating the struggle as a daily battle rather than one big event. It was hundreds of bad events. Lots of bad policies, lots of injustice, lots of anger and fear. I highly recommend this to those who think drugs are something only found in ‘that part of town’ or that all those involved are ‘that sort of people.’ It’s simply not true.”

I have (hopefully) three books I will be turning my attention to completing and publishing in 2018 (if all goes well – and you know how uncertain life can be):
- The Hired Gun – Book 1 of the Hired Gun Series
Shane Ellis is a hired gun, determined to do his job, and keep his clients alive, no matter who is trying to kill them. Shane lives by and enforces the Code, a strict set of rules that have given his clients the highest survival rate – despite the dangers they have faced. Follow the Code and you stay alive. But Shane isn’t prepared for Lila, sexy, stubborn, and determined to ignore his rules. And Lila isn’t prepared for what he will do when she breaks each and every one of them.
This is my first foray into erotic romance and suspense, but it won’t be my last. I have also sketched out three other books in the Hired Gun series – Steel and Smoke, Broken Code, Deadly Sins, and Tempting Fate
- The Glass Forrest – Book One of The Chronicles of Liv Rowan
On her 21st birthday, Liv Rowan is transported to a strange and peculiar world. As she struggles to understand where she is and what is happening to her, Liv finds herself confronted with impossible creatures, magic, and is tasked with saving the lives of the children from Glass Village.
As Liv discovers her magic powers, she questions everything. Is this all a dream? What is this strange world she has found herself in? And will she be able to return home again?
- Gliese 581: Zarmina’s World – The sequel to Gliese 581: The Departure
Daniel and his fellow scientists have arrived safely on Zarmina’s World and established humanity’s first extra-solar colony. But even as they settle in, there are mysteries in this new world that threaten their very existence.
And the colonists are not the only ones in peril. On Earth, the remaining population struggles to renew not just their world by building new cities free of death and disease, but also to have children and ensure that humans do not become extinct on Earth.
The Mars colony and its handful of survivors has its own challenges as they struggle to continue the work of terraforming the barren planet. If that wasn’t enough, they have just learned of an extinction-level event that threatens Earth
- Start Your Own Housecleaning Biz
Built from thirteen years of experience cleaning houses for clients in Kansas City, this book serves as a guide for finding (and keeping) clients, providing excellent service, and running a professional housecleaning business while making excellent income.
All of these books are at some state of completion – anywhere from 1/3 to almost finished – which is why I’ve set such a high goal of three books in one year. Who knows? I might write a fourth!
