Book Description:

Two hikers go missing along the Appalachian Trail, leaving only a bloodstained forest behind them, and when another hiker collapses on someone’s porch in New Hampshire, murdered by crossbow, the local police realize they have a serial killer on their hands––and need to call in the FBI.

FBI Agent Tara Mills is young, brilliant and new to the force. With a promising career in front of her, she faces the ultimate test when she is assigned the case. It soon proves to be more challenging than she ever could have imagined––an impossible riddle that leaves even her seasoned partner stumped.

Meanwhile, something about the case stirs a darkness within her––a tortured past that even her long-term boyfriend doesn’t fully understand. As nightmares consume her, she only hopes that her past will not come back to ruin her once again.

As more hikers go missing, and with her job on the line, Tara finds herself on a race against time as she combs through the forest’s trails. Peeling back each layer, she soon realizes that she is up against a true diabolical mastermind. And just when she thinks she has it all figured out, her instincts lead her to the most shocking truth of all.

Book Description:

I had liked my life, mostly.

Maybe it wasn’t the one I would have chosen if things had worked out differently, but it was my life. I had made it from scratch.

I’d fought, trained and worked hard. I’d stayed focused and became the best Marine anyone ever met. Not the best female Marine, the best Marine full stop. I was exactly where I wanted to be. The go-to person who maybe wasn’t the best liked Marine, but definitely the one the guys wanted at their back.

Until the night I wasn’t.

It didn’t matter that no one had ever seen or heard of the unearthly hell creature that killed my entire squad while I was out walking the line. It didn’t matter that I wasn’t suppose to be there in the first place, and it didn’t matter that no one believed me. What mattered was, when it was all over, my guys were still dead and I wasn’t a Marine any more.

With no shot at a life worth living I was looking at option two.

But the disenfranchised daughters of southern preachers never do things the easy way. After five years heavy drinking, one night stands and taking the kind of high risk gigs that were the only thing my tactical and military training had qualified me for, I was well on my way down oblivion’s rabbit hole.

My only breaks were taking occasional advantage of the weird deal the Corp gave me as part of my discharge. Voluntary revolving door admittance in the psyche ward of one of Baltimore’s oldest hospital.

But one night something out of a nightmare happened and I learned two things. Monsters are real, and that I still had one more good deed left in my soul.

Saving a little girl from a magical ritual that would have left her nothing more than a mind-blasted body to be used by some supernatural something from another dimension was a good deed. The kind that never goes unpunished, but then it wasn’t like I had a choice, not even for a moment.

The necessary lapse in judgement put me on the radar of a mysterious, eccentric recluse. A self-proclaimed fixer…wizard…warlock…sorcerer…I don’t know, for Baltimore’s occult and supernatural community.

And It got me a job offer.

They say fools rush in where angel’s fear to tread. Living in an enchanted sanctum along side a pair of sex demons it looks like I’m going to to be leaving a lot of angels in my wake.

Buy the book. Read my story. Maybe not to late into the night though, because you never really know what’s beyond The Perimeter.

Book Description:

Ten year old Gabriel Jordan always wanted to be a magician. He just isn’t very good at it. His godmother writes to a mysterious traveling magician named Thrylos and begs him to visit Gabe, just to encourage him. To her surprise and Gabe’s, Thrylos does so—only it turns out that Thrylos doesn’t just do “magic tricks.” He’s a real magician, and he offers Gabe a magical adventure—any adventure—of his choice.

Gabe thinks long and hard about this. Because Gabe’s godparents adopted him when he lost his mom and dad, he knows what it is to be sad, and to need something exciting to cheer him up. So he tells Thrylos when he returns that he wants to give his adventure away to another kid who needs it more than he does. Thrylos is so impressed with Gabe’s unselfish choice that he offers to make Gabe his apprentice instead. Thrylos reveals that he is a time-traveling magician, and he travels throughout history to various critical, kairos moments in time to make sure they happen the way they should. But he can’t do it alone. Gabe asks if he can bring his adopted little sister Elizabeth and his bookish friend Marty as apprentices too, and Thrylos agrees.

Together, the three kids travel to Christmas Night, 1776: the pivotal night of the American Revolutionary War. Whether or not America ever becomes a nation hinges on General George Washington’s decision that night, when it seems like everything has gone wrong. Can Gabe, Elizabeth, and Marty convince General Washington to press on in the face of incredible odds? The fate of the future United States of America hangs in the balance!
