A new small town. A new cozy life. And a new beginning.
Sarah Garland, a retired homicide detective who's gone through a painful divorce, seems to have found her peace at last, as a coffeeshop owner, in the sleepy (and freezing) small town of Snow Falls, Alaska. What she didn't expect, was for her past life to catch up with her. Or, for her new life as a mystery writer to inspire a deadly killer to target her.
Yet, when the killer leaves a frightening clue-a creepy snowman, donning a leather jacket and eating a peppermint candy cane, left in front of her cabin-Sarah begins to suspect Conrad Spencer, the new detective in town, who is pursuing a murderer of his own. Soon, it becomes obvious that the sleuths would have to join forces, in order to catch the killer.
Sarah and Conrad must put their tragic pasts behind them and find out who's after her... before the trail becomes frozen.
This cozy mystery is a clean read: no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.

This single volume brings together all of Poe's stories and poems, and illuminates the diverse and multifaceted genius of one of the greatest and most influential figures in American literary history.
Quotes from the book:
"Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute."
"Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence- whether much that is glorious- whether all that is profound- does not spring from disease of thought- from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect."
"Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?"
"Definitely not light reading, but perfect for the fall and winter. Very dark and poetic. Great stories, and each story is just short enough to maintain attention span. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates a challenging read." (Bailey Jane, goodreads.com)

Imagine that before you were born you had another life that you can no longer remember.
Welcome to Premortal; a book of life before living...
Initially, this premortal world is peaceful and uncomplicated. A clear blueprint has been devised for the mortal journey and there is harmony between spirits, most of whom are preparing diligently for their time on earth.
Those who have not been so diligent, however, gradually begin to realise that they are falling behind, and that their neglect may impact upon their future.

So persuasive is this dark spirit that he ultimately threatens to take complete control, skewing the destiny of all mankind.

When you are a cop's wife, you are aware of certain truths: 1) If he's late, no news is good news. You are told when bad things happen. 2) If he's late and the phone rings, most likely all is well if it is his voice you hear. 3) An officer killed in the line of duty is often a new father or close to retirement. Pay attention and you'll see the pattern. 4) Most importantly, when an officer comes to your home with someone holding a bible, something is horribly, horribly wrong.___
It is with this knowledge that I open my door on a September day with a cranky baby on my hip and Cheerios stuck in my hair.
An inventive serial killer doesn't appear on the retirement center's list of amenities, but neither do Jack and Betty Luckner.
One by one, Jack and Betty's neighbors are going face-down in their morning oatmeal. Admittedly, the perky prune surprise can be pretty wretched, but the hearty lumberjack oatmeal ought to be about as benign as last year's keratosis.
If you've ever wondered what you'd do if your buddies started to die off for no apparent reason, then you owe it to yourself to tag along with Jack and Betty Luckner. They're two larky-sparky retirees who love to ask edgy questions and do impolite things.
Armed with only their wits and their sense of justice, they face insurmountable odds. Nevertheless, they race toward the solution, hoping to reach it before the killer can put a stop to their efforts.
After all, retirement shouldn't be lethal.
Drawing on the traditions of Dashiell Hammett and Lawrence Block, The View that Disappeared serves up a feast of macabre murders, ...
I am Bill McIntyre and I am a healer by trade. I have recently developed the dubious ability of hearing voices in my head. I wake up one morning and hear a voice asking for help. Before I lose the voice, I manage to get a little information, but not much. Discussing the situation with a colleague, I find a possible matching address for the voice. Based purely on that, I make my way there. I knock at the door and when I get no reply, I ask the neighbours. They haven't seen anything today. I decide to call a policeman I helped a few months back, when he was having a strong allergic attack whilst eating a sandwich. Not surprisingly, he can't help me now.
I am so convinced that the voice is in trouble and Alice is in the house, that I break down the front door of the house. I find Alice unconscious and barely alive, curled up in the under stairs cupboard. The policemen want to know me now!
Alice (the voice) has been left for dead and her son Harry has been taken hostage by two of Grant's ...

A Series of Horror short stories... How long does a story have to pass the lips of locals before it becomes an urban legend? Sometimes it takes centuries of fear and rumors before a killer's legend takes shape.. None of them appeared overnight, they were built slowly like a rolling boil that now grips the minds of young and old alike.
Becoming an urban legend is a lot like teaching someone a new hobby, it is all about repetition. Repetition and reason. A man can snap, grab a gun and go shoot someone everyday for a few weeks before he vanishes from the public eye and the cops claim that he was taken down. How long do the rumors last? How long do people wonder if he truly did die? Only as long as it is relevant. If that same man snapped as a grocery clerk and took that gun into supermarkets, only shooting people who choose plastic over paper... That would make most people think twice before choosing plastic even months after the guy is for sure dead.
But when it came to the Eyeball ...

Seven deadly writers, each with their own distinctive voice. Together, they are Sinful.

After decades of consulting with Native American tribes and their casinos I thought it would be of interest to explain what they must go through to be the proud owners of a casino. The process is so tedious that it's humorous. But those tribes that succeed may find a way to self-sufficiency. Or maybe not. But I'm certain they don't think it's funny.
The Malaka Tribe of the Costanoan Nation (also known as the Ohlone) in my novel is fictitious but the process they go through is not. I'm not certain whether this is a story of love, hate, greed, politics, financial success, manipulation, or all of that and more. Whatever it is the story will, hopefully, be both entertaining and educational to the readers.
The tale takes place in modern times after they have gone through an excruciating and costly process of getting recognition as a legitimate Native American Tribe. This gave them the status of a sovereign nation and a modicum of government support. But they still did not have a ...

And now, for one young man and his closest of friends, the dark is upon them, and fear runs through their veins. They alone know of its terrible power, and they have only one chance to stop it. No one is safe. There's no place left for them to hide... And time is running out.
