WINDOW OF DEATH, Book Two in the Window of Time Trilogy

Ever since I wrote the first draft of Window of Time in 2003, I dreamed of seeing this story in print--not only printed, because I did that many years ago at Kinkos. It didn't have a proper cover, nor had it seen a single beta reader. Now this project is two-thirds of the way through, and I'm excited about the way the last book is shaping up. 

I'm not the marketing guru that some of my friends are, but then I'm not at that point in my writing career to worry about that yet. Right now, I'm enjoying myself with writing. And I hope you'll enjoy what I'm writing, as well. 

In celebration of the release of WINDOW OF DEATH, I'm offering the e-book of Window of Time for the temporary price of .99 cents. If you buy the paperback of either book, you can download their E-book for FREE

WINDOW OF DEATH launch April 1st, 2016

 Coming April 1st, Window of Death, Book Two in the Window of Time Trilogy. 

CIA Agent Lucy James’s undercover reentry into the US doesn’t go as planned. The human coyote smuggling her and more than a dozen illegal aliens across the southern border into Arizona abandons them. Their group scatters. But Lucy is soon rescued by two US Border Patrol agents. After they hear shots fired in the distance, the hope of finding the others alive plummet. Ruthless border bandits methodically track and kill the illegals for the contraband-filled backpacks each man carries.

When Lucy has a premonition—a window into the future—she sees one of the agents killed by the same bandits. She must gain their trust in time to stop the bandits from continuing their murder spree, and find the missing backpacks containing the deadly packages before the US has its first mass terrorist attack since 9-11.

THE ZION TRAIL by Marsha Ward

I’ve been given the great opportunity to read Marsha Ward’s new historical fiction, The Zion Trial, debuting February 19th

Set in the late nineteenth century, it’s a story about fifteen-year-old Elijah Marshall’s conversion to the Mormon church, an action not readily accepted back then, by his neighbors, or even by some of his family members.  

I feel a certain empathy to the Marshall family and their difficult trials. Marsha Ward's genius rises to her highest peak in The Zion Trial, with spot-on period terminology and meticulous attention to detail. It pulled me back to that time when my Fourth-Great-grandfather Edson Whipple, and his family converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and took that Zion trail, and beyond, all because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

If you'd like to read some snippets from The Zion Trail, please go to Marsha's blog, Writer in the Pines. And stay tuned for more information on when you can buy a copy!

WINDOW OF TIME cover release

It's been a long time in the works, but it's finally happening. A book that I started writing nearly thirteen years ago is finally ready to be published, and I'm thrilled to show you the beautiful cover to this Romantic Suspense, WINDOW OF TIME.

CIA courier Lucy James never gets used to seeing innocent people killed, but she copes with it—every day. Cursed with the ability to glimpse into the future when a death is about to happen, she has a short window of time to interfere—risking her life in order to change it. No one knows about her curse, until she saves a handsome Los Angeles firefighter trapped between her and foreign operatives hell-bent on intercepting her current assignment.

LA firefighter Johnny Cartwright’s life changes the moment he meets Lucy. His uncomplicated days flip to dangerously unpredictable after he’s drawn deeper into her secretive world of premonitions. His attraction to Lucy grows as he helps her stop a terroristic plot against the U.S., putting his life between her and certain death.
