Which One Do I Read First??

Several of you have asked about the reading order of the various series, so I created this post to walk you through it. The books are listed in order, from left to right. Also, the series’ are listed in order, from top to bottom. The two exceptions are the Starsdale Series and Trapped in Spaulding Manor, which do not relate to any of the other books in any series, so you may read those at any time. Also, An Extraordinary Christmas is not a thriller, but the cast of characters centers around Jeri and Ethan, and their love story. For those of you interested in such, read this one before The Collector, or at any time after Anson.

Timeless Trilogy:

This romantic suspense trilogy showcases the lives and loves of three women who have specific paranormal abilities. In Fate, Kris relies on precognition to help save her life, and the life of the man she loves. Spellbound chronicles Roni’s surprising journey into white magick, and the devastating consequences of power left untapped. Destiny opens Cassie’s world, both past and present, through reincarnation, and offers her one more chance at true love.

This series started it all, with beloved characters who reappear in both the SSCD Series and the EJB Global Series.

SSCD Crime Thrillers:

Jeri Forbes leads a specialized team of FBI agents as they search the nation for elusive serial killers. This action-packed series of psychological thrillers will keep you on the edge of your seat, but be warned. These stories are not for the faint of heart.

EJB Global Crime Thrillers:

Jeri and Ethan continue their hunt for the worst of the worst, only this time they do it on their own terms.

Stories of Starsdale:

The Stories of Starsdale series offers plenty of suspense, paired with sweet romance that is sure to touch your heart. Fall in love with the characters of Starsdale, California, as they find happiness in a small town.

Novellas (Not a Series):

As previously mentioned, An Extraordinary Christmas is all about Jeri and Ethan’s love story, no serial killers anywhere in sight. It takes place after Anson, but before The Collector, so read it in between the two, if you’re interested in a short, clean romance. Trapped in Spaulding Manor is another novella, just a bit of a romantic ghost story that was floating around in my head. Hope you enjoy!

All the best,



New Release! The Judge

The Judge 2000x3000

Locked away on death row, Celine Drew’s tormentor posed little threat, aside from the ever-present damage to her body, mind, and soul. Locked in a prison of her own making, Celine’s self-imposed exile from family and friends kept her vulnerable to memories of her time with a serial killer known as The Judge.

When letters from The Judge threaten to finish what he started, Celine reaches out to Jeri Forbes, and the EJB Global team. Though disturbing, the letters are also harmless, until Tyler Burgess, The Judge, escapes from prison.

Tyler Burgess has nothing to lose. Celine Drew has everything to gain.

Follow Celine’s journey from terrorized victim, to the moment she takes charge of her life again, with the help of her protector, Brent Hall. Jeri, Ethan, and the entire EJB Global team go in search of Tyler Burgess, but he’s always one step ahead. Until he’s not.

This explosive drama profiles a sexual sadist and his murderous spree, from death row to his end game; the people he blames most for his untimely incarceration.

The Judge is now available at Amazon and B&N. Coming soon to iTunes and Kobo.


New Release!! And A Warning

I’m pleased to tell you that my latest EJB Crime Thriller, A Killer’s Watch, is now live at Amazon and B&N.

As many of you know, I’ve written a thriller or two, but this one gave me the creeps throughout the entire process. The main reason for my heebie-jeebies is the fact that one aspect of this story could happen to any of us. If you have a laptop, desktop, or smart T.V. with a camera, your life could be an open book to anyone so inclined to spy. Apparently, it’s not difficult to break through most firewalls, hack into a private computer, and activate the camera. Will the light go on, so that you’re at least aware that you’re being watched? No.

Fortunately, a simple solution to this potential invasion of your privacy is to cover the camera with electrical tape, or something similar, when you’re not using it. It’s unfortunate that we must stoop to such measures, but until manufacturers build in a cover, along with the camera, it’s better to be safe than exposed.

Okay, my public service announcement is over. Here are the details of A Killer’s Watch.

Killer's Watch copyhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KN6HWFC


Fifteen-year-old Shelby Torrent dreamed of becoming an actress. In the privacy of her bedroom, she enacted roles, performed musicals, and practiced her craft. Little did she know that someone was watching her every move. A killer, insidious as a spider, watched young Shelby through the lens of her laptop.

He watched.
He recorded.
He shared.
Finally, he killed.
Shelby was not his first victim, nor would she be his last.

Jeri Forbes and Ethan Barnes, of EJB Global, learned of Shelby’s killer through a program designed to spot kills similar to those of an old nemesis, Howard Anson. As one of Anson’s watchers, Graham Grant learned his trade from the best, and most evil, serial killer on the books. He took up the cause where Anson left off, streaming his kills live to an audience of paying aficionados.

With little to go on, tracking the killer is difficult, at best, as he chooses his victims from a three-state pool. Jeri and Ethan soon realize that he is targeting the same woman, over and over again. If only they knew her identity.

Dive deep into the mind, and heart, of a serial killer, obsessed with his past and the destruction of one he loves most.

Author’s Note: Readers who have enjoyed the SSCD Crime Thriller series are familiar with Anson. If you haven’t yet read Anson, be aware that several references are made to the story within this book. Specifically, the resolution of Anson’s reign is mentioned.

I hope that you enjoy the read!


New Release! Cascade

Hello Everyone~

I’m thrilled to say that the third novel in the Stories of Starsdale series is now available!
Cascade tells the story of Jade and Justin, their irresistible attraction and the challenges they face along the way.

Jade Kingsley had run out of options. Surviving a disastrous marriage, and subsequent divorce, her life had dwindled to not much more than a shadow existence within the four walls of her tiny apartment. When her friends, Robert and Dana, invite her to move to Starsdale, she packs up and takes a chance on a new life.

 Nothing could have prepared her for the spellbinding attraction she feels for Justin Devereaux, a friend of Robert’s with plans to develop Starsdale. Jade and Justin discover that, sometimes, love is a free-fall; the only choice you have is to go along for the ride.

 Romance is not the only thing in store for Justin and Jade. Will an ordinary business trip turn deadly, ending their chance for happiness?  Lives balance precariously as Mother Nature unleashes an unexpected storm, threatening to change relationships in Starsdale forever.

I hope that you enjoy the read!

Research Trip – Cliffs of Starsdale

My daughter and I drove cross-country a couple of years ago and I fell in love with the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Wyoming also captured my heart, but that’s another story.;)

To further my inspiration for my latest novel, Cliffs of Starsdale, a friend and I visited Yosemite and surrounding areas in Northern California earlier this year. The views were stunning, but my photography skills could not do it justice. All the same, I posted a few of my favorite shots on the Cliffs of Starsdale Pinterest board; take a look when you have a minute.

Here’s one of my favorite shots~

All the best,



First Look!

Seeking a fresh start after her mother’s death, Chelsea Bates lands in the picturesque town of Starsdale, California. Nestled amid the peaks of the High Sierras, Starsdale defines the term ‘small town’ with its mish mash of well-meaning residents who always seem to know everyone else’s business.

The one thing no one knew, could not have predicted, was the evil lurking beneath the surface of Chelsea’s ex-fiancé. Preston Beecher follows her to Starsdale with the intentions of taking everything she owns, including her life. Will Preston destroy her dreams before they begin, or will bonds forged in a small mountain town be the pathway to her future?

Chelsea’s attempts to put the past behind her leads to a new partnership with one of Starsdale’s most respected citizens, John Mills, a man who harbors secrets and an agenda of his own. With the help of John and his talented son, Mac, Chelsea turns a dilapidated building into a bed and breakfast showcase.

Join Chelsea as she learns the ways of a small town in this, the first book in the Stories of Starsdale Series.

Coming June 15, 2013



3-Day SALE!

As a Thank You to loyal readers and as a way to gain exposure to new readers, I’m running a 3-day sale on The Littles, An SSCD Crime Thriller.

Effective today until midnight, May 31, The Littles is available for .99, a savings of $3 from the regular retail price.

Here are the links, hope you enjoy!





Also, I’d like to thank everyone who helped make Casanova Killer free. As the first in the SSCD series, readers who enjoyed the Timeless Trilogy can go back in time to see how Dylan, Jeri and Nate worked together at the FBI. As much a love story as it is a thriller, Casanova Killer will remain free for the foreseeable future. Tell your friends.

Have a fabulous day!



Help Me Make It FREE!

Casanova Killer, the first of the SSCD Crime Thrillers, is already free on iTunes and on Kobo, but I’d like to make it free on Amazon and B&N as well.

Authors are not allowed to set a price for a book at less than .99 on either site, so I need a little help to get their attention. For those of you who have Amazon accounts, please go here, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008R2O1FI, scroll down to the Product Detail section and click “Tell us about a lower price.”

The answer to the question “Where did you see a lower price?” is Website. The next section asks for a URL and price, so copy this link, https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id646849935

or this link, http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Casanova-Killer-An-SSCD-Crime/book-H3y-uygjlEKk-jeJF1AOJQ/page1.html?s=LKakzQ_1pECvXUUQaN8oSw&r=1 

enter either one into the URL section and list the price as 0.00.

It’s crazy, I know, but the only way Amazon or B&N will price match a book to free is if they know it’s free elsewhere. So we just have to tell them. Once it’s free on Amazon, it shouldn’t take B&N long to figure it out.

Thanks for your help!
