Intrigue,romance and fun OH MY!

the midnight

Sorrowful Springs is a quaint and quirky tourist town—small town America at its best. Cobblestone streets, courtyard gardens, and the best B&B in the Ozarks. It also seems the most unlikely of places for a secret, sophisticated crime-solving group to call home, but when some of the local residents were CIA and MI-5 agents in their younger days, anything is possible!
Even murder.

Rory Wyatt, resident waitress, taxi driver, and super sleuth had expected the toughest job she’d have this summer would be changing into the vintage costumes for the Edgar Allan Poe readings at her parent’s B&B. Now, two of the townsfolk are dead! Who would want to kill a sweet, kind-hearted janitor and an elderly librarian? And why is a US Marshal lurking his tall-dark-and-handsome self around town asking questions?

Time is ticking, and as things become more and more dangerous, it’s up to ‘The Midnight Social Club’ to unravel the puzzle before the killer strikes again.

The election year of 2028 holds no great surprises. The current married, lesbian U.S. President has been a popular figure in the White House during her eight-year term. She has endorsed her Muslim Vice President to succeed her, and he is the odds-on favorite to continue the Administration’s progressive policies.

Pastor James Glazier faces other concerns than politics and the condition of the country, unaware of the dangers that Islam poses through America’s next president. His beloved wife, Janna, lies dying of cancer. His church, falling apart under his stewardship, wants him out. More critically, these and other challenges sorely test James’ faith. He’s moving toward the point of dismissing God in his life altogether.

When James joins forces with another pastor, who opens his eyes to the danger of their out-of-control federal government and the Islamicization of America, his life turns from difficult to impossible. Christian persecution rivals Nazi treatment of the Jews in the 1930s. Violence and anarchy, fostered by the government itself, are on the rise. Whether he wants to or not, James must confront this situation.

Nothing goes right for James. Then God whispers into his unwilling ears.

After the last war, when magic destroyed half the world, four queens were given the chance to rule in peace, abolishing the arcane use. The remaining land was split into four kingdoms, and harmony became the main objective. For a century, the Kingdom of Dalry has lived with its neighbors without issue, but that is about to change.

Living simply, as the new kingdom dictates, Cassie is used to the days of cleaning up after her annoying stepmother and diabolical step-siblings. For the most part, she’s able to ignore her father’s flighty dismissal. However, the approaching war and a new friend remind her of how much she misses the family she used to have.

Simon is on his way to enter the war and gain his father’s approval. He doesn’t want to sit on the sidelines while others fight the battles he’s more than capable of joining. When he meets Cassie, he begins to wonder what his life will look like after the war ends.

With her father and Simon gone, Cassie becomes involved in another war. An evil witch, set on revenge, takes her hostage. She’s the key to a spell more than two decades in the making. Her only choice is to go along with the plan until she can get free.

The witch has waited a long time to enact her revenge. In a kingdom where magic is outlawed, she had to go into hiding but not before she swore to retaliate against the man who broke her heart. With Cassie, she will be able to rely on a formidable opponent to deliver her vengeance.

Now, Cassie must find a way to defeat the malevolent witch and her resurrected adversary before she loses far more than her glass slippers.

In this powerful story, a young Ugandan on a quest to survive his unfortunate circumstances grudgingly becomes a rebel who learns that it is only he who controls the demons living within his soul.

Charles Agwok never asked to come into the world as a poor black African on the most terrible of continents. It seems especially unfair to him that it is a matter of chance whether he will sleep in a bed, find a job, marry, or die of hunger and disease. Yet although he never asked for his fate, now he must somehow find a way to survive it.

As he embarks on a coming-of-age journey to find meaning within a world that only recognizes violence, Charles does his best to endure the horrifying conditions that he and the other displaced people of Odek must face every day in the sprawling camps of northern Uganda. When a desperate need to find work leads him to the city of Kampala, Charles spends the next ten years as a bitter man frustrated with the unfairness of the world. Charles has no idea he has the power within to change his fate until he is reluctantly recruited to become a soldier in the Lords Resistance Army and must face his past as it rises up to meet him.
