Nickle Brickle’Bee is odd, even by his own standards. While most boys are starting to get hair under their arms, Nickle starts growing whiskers on his chin. By the time he is twelve, he can grow a full beard. Then one day, Nickle finds himself swallowed by the earth and taken to the center of the world where he finds a massive magical city called EarthWorks that is governed by a myriad of powerful creatures. Between horrifying monsters, Elves that rule with pomp and power, Fairies that are in open rebellion, a greedy Dwarf Warlord, and an indestructible but blind adversary, Nickle finds himself in the middle of a power struggle that could mean the end of this new world.

A Pig Isle Adventure
The Pigmeister’s best friend needs help. Rance Hogg is one of the best friends a farm animal can have. But hard times are causing him to lose the family farm for taxes! Now, with Joy McAloon’s help, the Pigmeister will get back into training to help his friend with a Pay-Per-View sporting event to raise the tax money and save the farm.
Meanwhile, two-year-old Andy will get to be the Mayor of Pig Isle for an entire week. Andy is overjoyed at the chance to be in charge, and he starts his administration by giving free candy and ice cream to all the children. But during his week as mayor, Andy learns some valuable lessons about leadership, responsibility and good citizenship.
A Pig Isle Christmas
The Pigmeister wants this year to be the best Christmas that Pig Isle has ever seen. He has made fat snowmen with carrot noses and silk top hats, and he has wrapped tinsel ropes around all of the lamp posts. The shops are filled with Christmas dolls in satin dresses and real cowboy hats and every sort of toy you can imagine. The scent of sweet Christmas cakes and warm figgy puddings is everywhere. But, there is no Christmas spirit on Pig Isle.
On Christmas Eve, he brings Joy and Andy McAloon back to the Isle to help him host a Christmas Pageant. With the help of the Pigmeister’s magical Christmas tree, Joy and Andy are able to show the children of Pig Isle the story of the first Christmas and introduce them to God’s best gift to the world–His Son.
“The Christmas Spirit Can Only Be Found in a Manger”

Forget the law. This cop wants revenge…
Detective Inspector Stella Cole has almost completed her bloody quest to avenge the hit and run killings of her husband and daughter. Only one member of the legal conspiracy who murdered them remains. But he happens to be her boss: Detective Chief Superintendent Adam Collier. And he’s not going to go down without a fight.
Collier’s first move is to have Stella sectioned. While she’s incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital, he hires a Maltese woman to kill her.
Monica Zerafa is fearless, brutal and hungry for the cash Collier’s promised her.
But neither Collier nor Zerafa has reckoned with Stella’s violent alter ego, “Other Stella”. What’s worse for Stella, this split-off part of her personality is growing stronger by the day. She wants control.
The non-stop action switches from London, to a gangster’s palatial home in rural Essex, then to Canada and an Ojibway reservation, and Chicago, before the final, bloody climax in a frozen Minnesota.
A darkly disturbing crime thriller…
Hit and Done is the third book in this hyper-violent trilogy about love, revenge and what a mother will do when pushed to the edge of sanity.
The body count keeps on growing as Stella confronts all the people who want to harm her … and metes out her own special brand of justice.

If she ever wants to see him again, she’ll have to take the risk…Publishers Weekly Starred Review: “Funny, Romantic & Harrowing!”After reconnecting with the one-that-got-away—and then losing him in a pandemic—Iz struggles to survive alone in a remote mountain cabin. As loneliness and despair set in, she starts taking in abandoned pets—until an ill-equipped, clean-shaven man knocks on her door and offers her a one-way trip to the past. With humanity teetering on the edge, she sacrifices everything, including her beloved pets, in an attempt to alter the dystopian present—and see her lover one last time.
She’s rushed into a hastily built time machine…
…and awakens on a tropical beach, buck naked—and suffering from side-effects—but 20 years younger!
With only hours to live, she must persuade her future lover to fix their relationship and thereby set off a chain of events that will erase the pandemic—no one is quite sure how.
Our young hero falls hard for her—a middle-aged woman in a vixen’s body—until she blurts out that she’s from the future and came to “improve” him.
Turns out, it’s not him that needs fixing, it’s her—and it’s far too late for that.
Across the infinite expanse of space and time, love endures…
(Unfortunately, it’s not going to be enough.)
This book contains material that may be disturbing to some and, in movie form, would be rated NC-17 for strong language, nudity, sexual situations, and violence. It includes attempted sexual assault, abduction, intense physical danger, miscarriage, confinement, a pandemic, religious fanaticism (Christian), government incompetence bordering on malice, mistreated animals, gun violence, near drowning, and (human) death.
Crossing in Time is a character-driven love story told from 3 points of view (in 1st-person, present tense): our plucky heroine’s, her steadfast lover’s, and a gay British physicist’s. At times, the book requires the gentle reader to keep track of 3 stories. So if you prefer your fiction to be straight-forward, light reading, this is probably not the book for you. (But the audiobook might be. It’s effing awesome.)
