Finding my way back into her arms.

There comes a time in a man’s life when you have to face the past, to build the future. I tried avoiding it at all costs. Tried masking it.

Our life together thus far hasn’t been blissful and let’s face it, she’s been stalked...shot...and above all, deceived. By everyone, including myself.

***** Warning- Explicit sexual scenes between consenting adults in a safe setting. *****


Taking back control.

I’m sick of this! It’s been a year of secrets that have revealed themselves at the cost of my life. Who knew that meeting the man of my dreams...my future...the other half of my soul would uncover such turmoil. Turmoil that may be beyond our control, but our future can’t survive until the secrets of the past are diminished...or killed. 

That secret being Thomas Malcolm.

That lowlife snake who has tried to destroy my father, Jackson, and me...my family. I’ve even had to kill someone because of him! I’m done with this. Done with letting Malcolm run our lives. Done living in fear. Done waiting for his next formidable move. It’s my turn. And I’m nobody’s pawn! It’s time to end him...end this...Inferno.







Okay, so I'm not one of those people that woke up one day and decided, "you know what, I think I'll write a book today." Who am I kidding, yes I am. However, I came to the decision because my fiancĂ© was struggling with his MS, and sometimes when things that heavy are going on in your life, you need an outlet. So, that's just what I did. I started with just writing poems, which turned into short stories, then what do you know...a whole book! Trust me, I'm no genius! But I feel you might enjoy some of the things I decided to put on paper. Some may think, "My goodness she's got a foul mouth!" Especially anyone that knows me, but what can I say, I must've been a sailor in my past life! 

Anyway, enjoy!

Soon a second body is found—an illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to a charismatic tent revival preacher. But as Katrina tries to investigate the enigmatic evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic FBI agents and Army CID personnel. When more young female refu-gees disappear, she must partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs mixed feelings in her, to connect the lake murder to the refugees. Katrina is no stranger to darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators plan to make sure she'll never again see the light of day . . .

Logan Farmer is the local sheriff. Small town boy who went to the big city and joined the police force. Then he came home where he belonged. He is deeply rooted in his Native American heritage.

Both had grown up knowing that there was more to the world that could be explained or seen. But neither of them knew that their peaceful lives could be disrupted in an instant by a legend long buried. A tale that had been told to them by Logan's grandmother when they were young along with a warning that the ancient legend could replay during their lifetime.

That is, until she was summoned to her home town of Lakewood to help with banishing an ancient evil that had come to pay a visit to the sleepy town. Then, she was faced with another woman whose secret wasn't so secret anymore.


Devon Brock knew he had to help his friend, Logan Farmer. Logan had helped him out too many times to turn his back and say no. However, he didn't realize that he would be called upon to pull out his law license to defend a poor woman who had killed and mutilated her husband on Halloween night. And he sure never expected to have to deal with spoiled Teagan Summers as part of it.

Devon and Teagan join forces as they work valiantly to not only defend a murderess, but to help Teagan's sisters and Logan Farmer as they battle an unseen evil that threatens to destroy the small town of Lakewood. And as they work together, they also form a tentative truce that they both know could lead to more.

Or that she would find herself face to face with a man who could get her to want to settle down.


Eric Michaels had been born and raised to be a farmer. It was what he did best. So, when the opportunity to be the foreman at a farm near a place called Lakeview, he had jumped at the chance.

I graduated with a BA in art and English from Sonoma State University in California. I've been an avid reader since I first learned how and a writer from my early teenage years on. I've had several art related businesses, including greeting cards and more recently a silk painting business. When I began to write in earnest I put aside the art, concentrating only on the writing.


I've traveled a lot over the years, finding inspiration wherever I go. Scotland holds a special place in my heart, hence the setting for "The Moonstone". I had to make a 4th trip there to do research as I was putting the book together!
