Bikini Baristas is a tale of two scofflaws.

Dick Randall is the owner of a chain of bikini barista stands in the Seattle area. Clayton Johnson-White is a teenage kid who thinks he’s smarter than the rest of the world.

The story begins when Dick’s pickup truck is discovered burned-out in the California desert. What happened to him? Did he fake his death to escape his sleazy past or did the past catch up with him?

To get away from his trailer-trash life, Clayton drops out of school and runs away into the woods of Camano Island. He breaks into vacation homes and steals what he needs.

Private detective Catrina Flaherty is hired by Dick’s wife to find out how he disappeared. When she and her partner, Ted Higuera, start turning over stones, some shocking things come crawling out.

Ted’s best friend, Chris Hardwick, has his first case as a grownup lawyer. He is assigned the Clayton Johnson-White file. He expects to do a quick plea-bargain and get on with his life. Instead, he finds Clayton has evolved into a professional criminal who teaches himself to fly, steals airplanes and goes on a nationwide crime spree. Chris, Ted and Cat are intertwined on a case that takes on international proportions.

What do these two cases have in common? In the end, they come together with the force of two colliding freight trains.

A gorgeously funny, romantic and seductive modern fairy-tale…

For fans of Bridget Jones and The Princess Diaries comes a laugh-out-loud, feel-good comedy with a sizzling side of romance…

When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first sight, but there’s no way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have a career or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends…

Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?

Obsidian: Birth to VenusFREE on Amazon!

The year is 2116. Scientists understand why super-centenarians live to 100, 115, even 125 years old. But, 66 years have passed since Dr. Jai Dean was born and she doesn’t look a day over 21. And, she’s only grown stronger with age. She can see better than a bird of prey, pinpoint the vertical position of any sound, strike a target 600 meters away, and heal wounds that cut straight to the bone. For decades, she’s had no name for it, no label to define what she is, no way to understand her body or understand the power she holds. Jai lives on the run, determined to keep her family and secret safe.

Everything changes when scientists discover the Homo sentient, a new, superior species that can siphon other people’s energy to maintain their youth. For the first time, Jai believes she’s not alone. What will she do, when new friends become family, tensions rise, and humans and sentients are bent on destroying each other?

The world is breaking. A powerful shadow force hunts her family. And, Jai is still evolving. With new skills and buried secrets, Jai’s future may be uncertain, but she knows who she is, and what she stands for.

Birth to Venus is the first book in THE OBSIDIAN CHRONICLES, which follow Jai as she’s haunted by her past and struggles to shape the future when Homo sapiens no longer rank at the top of food chain.

Jai’s story is La Femme Nikita meets The Handmaid’s Tale with an evolutionary twist. It’s a story about the future but, more than that, it’s a story about the things that never change. For Jai, family is defined by choice, not by birth or blood. Family matters, and it’s worth fighting for. This is a story that’s relevant to our divided nation today.


This book tells an excellent sci-fi fantasy story about the discovery of a new species, “Homo sentient,” that is superior to humans. The story follows Jai, a sentient who feels alone as she struggles to understand what she really is. As the story progresses, she finds out that she’s not alone, she finds solace in a motley crew of sentients, and ultimately she and her friends are forced to take sides when a rivalry brews between humans and sentients. The story is futuristic, yet unfolds with striking relevance to our currently divided nation. I liked how the sci-fi was explained through the lens of modern day science. And, the science was balanced with martial arts, romance, and friendship. If you’re looking for a new world in sci-fi fantasy with a dose of political intrigue, then I definitely recommend this book.

This is a great read with interesting characters. The writing is smooth and so beautiful that it captures each scene vividly. I can easily lose myself in the story. It is exciting and unpredictable.

The author combines many types of action (covert ops, shoot outs, and martial arts) with a suspenseful sci-fi fantasy plot, emotional side stories, and even some steamy sexy scenes, making this an exciting and fun page turner. The protagonist develops a strong sense of herself in a way that’s relatable and empowering. And, I enjoyed the author’s approach to the scientific aspects of the story. She describes how humans could be surpassed by a new superior species, but she takes a novel approach to the reaction we humans might have to it, ultimately posing important questions that are actually relevant to our nation today. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series so I joined the author’s mailing list. Sign up is on her website, where there’s also an animated video that complements her cover art. So, if you’re looking for an entertaining and though-provoking read, I highly recommend this book!

Dawn of the CourtezanFREE on Amazon!

The Graphene Prairie – Lawrence, Kansas – 2082. The North American Union comprises all of Mexico, Canada and the antique United States. Alcohol is banned, marijuana is mainstream. Holograms fill our eyes, drones float above the city hovstreets and the Office of the Architect watches everything and everyone. Everyone, that is, except for a particular group of shiners, hand-picked outlaws protected by canine war cyborgs and a charismatic and mysterious telepath named Daxane Julius Abner. Mr. Abner has a purpose. That purpose is freedom. He and his shiners make America’s black market vodka. And they are the only heroes left.


Tara Dean had a gift. She used it to escape. The vile memory of the behavioral modification hospital was only fifteen kilometers behind in the cold January wind as her stolen 2079 Mustang flipped off the hovroad floating 199 kph. Halfway through the first mid-air rotation, charges exploded along crumple junctions in the silver hovcar’s roof and the polyaluminum cabin blew free. Ejected into the sky, away from the disintegrating Ford, Tara Dean’s unconscious body was enveloped in an emergency collision sphere. Clear of the wreckage, her shrouded form bounced into a ditch and was immediately surrounded by the pack of waiting Coyotes. The animals began to savage the sphere’s elastiframe fabric with their dulled teeth. They had come for a reason. These were the Coyotes of cyborg legend, the vanished products of Darkpool Laboratories, drawn at long last from the darkness by the unique scent of her blood. Welcome to the Dawn of the Courtezan.
