Backwoods Justice Trilogy

Interwoven tales of mystery, murder, and romance in a small, tourist town.

CAPTIVITY — The gruesome discovery of a woman’s corpse in the small tourist resort of Point Jove, Missouri draws Sheriff Josh Wolfe, a widower who enjoys tinkering with his award winning hot rod, into the most perilous case of his career. Hounded by the townsfolk and media, Wolfe exhausts every conventional method for solving the crime. The investigation comes to a standstill. Then, four more residents disappear. Everyone is convinced Rhone County is harboring a serial kidnapper who chooses his victims by chance. Wolfe believes the people are not only related to one another but are somehow tied to the last surviving member of the county’s namesake. Time is not only running out for Sheriff Wolfe but for his lover, dissatisfied wife of a homebuilder, held against her will at the Rhone family’s abandoned sawmill where spilled gasoline awaits a lighted match.

BETRAYAL — A reporter furthers his budding career as a crime scene photographer by filming new construction being set ablaze by his older brother, who has a dark secret of his own.

PAYBACK — A deadly game of geocaching goes awry when hidden clues to the whereabouts of a kidnapped victim are swept away in a flash flood.

Featuring Sheriff Josh Wolfe of KILLING SUMMER.

My arm will be in a cast for six weeks. Typing with one hand is difficult because when I'm writing my mind is always racing ahead of my fingers, it's easy to lose track. I've already made the book cover and an outline. There's no reason not to work on my new romance story. If I feel the story slipping away from me I can jot down my thoughts on Post-it Notes. I probably won't have it ready by Valentine's Day like I planned, and that's okay.

Broken Arm

Broke my arm.

New story on hold.

Chicken-pecking on keyboard not working.

Oh woe is me.

Coming In 2015

I'm working on a new story for the new year. Romance with a touch of mystery. I thought stepping out of my comfort zone I'd have a hard time writing a decent story, but so far I am proving myself wrong.

The Closer I Get To You (working title)

Brief Synopsis:
He found his happiness.
She's searching for hers.

That's all I can say about the story without giving away the plot at this time. Same with the cover. This picture isn't it.
