New Release

SERIAL QUILLER 3 is now available on Amazon and Nook.

Coming soon to Apple, Sony, Smashwords, and Diesel.

Strolling across Wrights Square disguised as Suite Sue, a high-priced call girl, Alma LeJeune encounters the ghost of Alice Riley, an indentured servant who was executed in January 1735 for the murder of her cruel employer, William Weiss. The first woman to be hanged in Savannah, Georgia, Alice was left hanging from the gallows for three days while bystanders gawked at her decomposing body. Taking the life of her employer was defensible. Hanging her was not. Enraged over the harsh treatment and public humiliation thereafter of the young Irish immigrant, along with the knowledge that Weiss wasn't punished in any way for his abusive behavior, Alma hunts down the descendants of those responsible for this undeserved execution.

SERIAL QUILLER 4: Key West, Florida – Coming Soon

An iBooks Author

I’m selling books on Apple.

Some of my sales come from Australia and Canada.

Most of my sales, so far, are for my novels and two of my short stories: STAY WITH ME and NIGHT OF THE DARK.

How cool is that?

Coming Soon

The Bad Mojo series continues with SERIAL QUILLER 3: Savannah, Georgia.

With a little help from BJ Donovan, Alma Lejeune exacts revenge on the descendants of the people who had willingly participated in the unjust conviction and public hanging of a young Irish woman in 1735.

Available by May 20.
