I'm so excited for you to read, King of Hearts,
the first book in my new series, Deuces Wild.
Available for preorder on Amazon
Check out this amazing intro!
Old West lawman, gambler, gunslinger, and showman, James "Wild Bill" Hickok, was murdered on August 2, 1876, while playing five-card draw at Nuttal & Mann's Saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory.

Jack McCall, a disgruntled gambler, approached Hickok from behind and shot him at point-blank range in the back of the head, killing him instantly. McCall was later hanged for the murder, but by then, America had lost one of its premier Wild West heroes.

Legend tells us "Wild Bill" held two pairs at the moment of his death, black aces and eights--the dead man's hand. The identity of his fifth card has been the subject of conjecture for years.

For the purpose of this series, I've chosen the Deuce of Hearts for that card-in-the-hole, in honor of a little boy named Devlin who loved to play the violin. In honor of a father's undying love for his son.

Some players think wild cards are amateurish and juvenile. Others believe the more wild cards in the game, the greater their chance of winning. I only know that one Deuce and a pair makes three of a kind, and that sounds a lot like a family to me. You be the judge.

Deuces Wild...

King of Hearts
The 1st book in The Deuces Wild Series
Available on Amazon

Tucker Chase. FBI agent and tough-as-they-come ex-Navy SEAL, Tucker's take-all-comers attitude attracts trouble on the job and off, but he still gets the hard jobs done. He makes no bones about being the baddest ass on the planet--until his ex-wife runs off to Vietnam with his only son, Deuce.
Until the woman he won't admit to loving leaves on some humanitarian mission to who knows where.
Until he has to ask for help...

Melissa McCormack. Widow to one of America's finest USMC war heroes, Melissa is everything Tucker isn't. Sophisticated. Wealthy. Respected. Don't forget celibate since Brady,
the first love of her life, passed away. She wants Tucker as much as he wants her, but not if she ends
up like that elite rifle he toted while in the SEAL team, the weapon he could field strip in his sleep without thought or care.
The one he took for granted...

Coming September 27th!
My lucky 13!
KY, In the Company of Snipers
Preorder @: Amazon

If you notice, the background is very wintery, and very, brrrr, cold... That's because the first part of this story takes place in Ontario, Canada, in the dead of winter.

Book description:
The only reason Team Agent Ky Winchester survived a brutal encounter with a Taliban madman was because of a woman with green eyes, an angel he thought he'd dreamed in the depths of torment. She came to him in that far off torture chamber, cloaked in the tender magic of hope, and he was willing to believe he might survive his nightmare. It was too bad he never thought to ask her name. Too bad he'll spent the rest of his days searching for her.
Whoever she is...

FBI Agent Eden Stark is the Bureau's number one and very top-secret psychic asset. While running from a different kind of madman, this one intent on mechanizing America's military, turning them into mindless, controllable drones, Eden's plane goes down in the frigid Canadian north. It's very probable she won't survive the night. Tow meched-up FBI agents are already tracking her. Maybe wolves.
Maybe someone else...
So what have I been doing these past weeks? Traveling! This is one of the places I've been privileged to visit, the Memorial in Odessa, TX, for American Sniper Chris Kyle. Interestingly, I was able to stand there on September, 11, 2016, the 15th anniversary of 9-11.

If you know me at all, you know how much I respect the military, its veterans, and its heroes. Chris Kyle is one of those heroes. The memorial is a powerful statement of the kind of man he was and the life he lived.

Book Description
He's on the last mission of his life...
Ex-Marine Lee Hart had already served his two weeks notice with The TEAM  when the cat burglar of Kabul ran into his life. Reckless and wild, Tess Culver has come to the attention of the Taliban's deadliest sniper, Mohammed Turik. And now she's become Lee's final assignment. The only fly in the ointment is Tess herself. She's headstrong and audacious, passionate and sexy, and...
This might just be the toughest mission Lee's ever been assigned.

She's determined to save the ancient relics...
Despite the current state of the country, Tess sees beauty and grace in Afghanistan. She sees hope. Working as a foreign-aid worker by day and cat burglar by night, she's stolen  back from the despicable Hasim Nizari, the Taliban banker, what he stole from the museum in Kabul. She's hellbent on rescuing the relics of her adopted country from despots like him, and she's got the brass balls to do it. All she needs is a little more time. A little more money.
And someone to catch her when she falls...

Shannon Reagan is a woman conflicted. She's savvy enough she owns her own boutique publishing company, yet she endures her billionaire father's bullying. Part of her still yearns for his love, but she's also smart enough to know something isn't right with Paul Reagan. Too many things don't add up. He's grown more secretive. More cruel. Colder. What is going on inside Reagan Industries?

Along comes Adam Torrey. Fiercely handsome but angry at her father and taking it out on her. Shannon can't seem to win until the worst happens. She and Adam are forced to fight for survival after her father's Gulfstream goes down in the Pacific.

A little about Adam, book 11
Adam Torrey's story is about military grade drones, deceit at the highest levels, courage under fire, survival, hope, and romance.

In this particular scene, the aircraft carrying Adam and Shannon to Hawaii crashed on a remote island in the Pacific. Shannon is caught on a piece of wreckage on the seaward side of the plane. She's hanging on for her life, but the tide's coming in. Wave after wave covers her face, and she's drowning. Adam is frantic to save her, but her leg is caught in nylon netting. He can't break her free. To save her, he'll have to leave her...

He's coming...

Sneak Preview of Adam
Book 11
In the Company of Snipers
Military Romance series


Coming to Amazon and Kindle April 30th

He lives for the rush…
Thrill seeking ex-Navy SEAL Adam Torrey loves a good HALO jump. There’s nothing better than the exhilaration and freedom of a heart-stopping, high altitude plummet to earth—until he comes face to face with Shannon Reagan, daughter of the billionaire inventor behind the world’s most lethal military drone. She’s champagne and caviar to Adam’s beer and pizza. They have absolutely nothing in common. Except those damned drones…


Thought for the day




Sea Fever
by John Masefield

“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over."



I can't post this enough...

Senior Chief SEAL Edward C. Byers
Medal of Honor Recipient


"Byers was the second SEAL through the door of a tiny, one-room building where Joseph was held hostage. As bullets zipped across the room, Byers leaped on top the doctor, using his own body armor to shield the captive as his fellow SEALs exchanged gun fire with enemy fighters. "Anyone who has been in combat knows that in those moments you either react or you get killed," Byers said in Navy video released Friday. As Byers protected Joseph, he spotted an AK-47 wielding Taliban guard just inches away. He continued to shield Joseph with his body as he grabbed the gunman by the throat, pinning him to a wall long enough for another SEAL to shoot him dead."
