The shift is coming.  Soon.

Dr. David Carter knows this. However, he’s a geologist, so ‘soon’ means anywhere from tomorrow to a thousand years from now.

People are dying.  Now.

Drs. Jordan Abellard and Jillian Brookwood are standing at the edge of SuperAIDS.  Or are they? They won’t be able to figure it out if they can’t get some authorization signed - and soon. But they’re peons and no one is paying attention.

Whole species died at the last polar shift. 65 million years ago.

The only similarity in the problems today is that each is occurring in a ‘hotspot’ - a pocket of reversed polarity that tells them all

The shift is already here.






Someone is keeping watch over the machine.

Should it ever have been built?

        The lure of the find behind the loose hearthstone at Hazelton House was too great. The schematic excited Evan, Reenie and Ivy for different reasons but it is Kayla who actually begins building it. Her ability to focus to the exclusion of all else is just one of the effects of her Asperger’s.

          The scribbled initials E. W. were merely a curiosity until it’s discovered they belong to Eli Whitney. But strange footprints and disturbing visitors let Evan know that the theft of his sister’s prize schematic isn’t just a coincidence.

          It becomes obvious that the generator has no apparent power source. And Eli Whitney was only the first to die because of the machine.

          Soon they realize their enemies are much bigger than they had imagined and
the threat the device poses could topple an empire. The secret now threatens those at Hazleton House.


Who is trying to stop them?






A demon . . .

Every soul he claims is another chance to advance.

Until he can walk among us, look like us, make us believe in him.  The only thing holding him back is . . .

An angel. . .

The rules of the realm bind him from fighting on the demon’s terms.  But this is his chance to steal something away from the demon, to steal the thing the demon wants most . . .

A woman who must choose . . .

A woman who has been chosen. 

Katharine is suddenly a pawn in a game where the rules and the stakes are beyond her comprehension.  She must take a side even though she can’t tell angel from demon.

And in the end, they will all be judged.






When you hear the horror music playing, do you run?

Or do you stand and fight?


All horror films have that scene--the one where the scary music is playing and the stupid girl continues to walk through the house looking for the bad guy when any sane person would run as fast as they could. DUMB BLONDE tells one girl's story of shadows in windows, scary music playing, and nobody believing her.

When Missy hears the music, she's wearing a bikini and there's a serial killer on the loose near her home town.

Her odds are not good.





When Dr. Priya Sengupta is called to the beach to help return a stranded pod of bottlenose dolphins into the Pacific, she can see that something has gone very wrong. What she doesn’t realize is just how wrong…
It’s not just the dolphins. It’s bees on the side of the highways. And her friend—also a biodiversity specialist—is seeing some strange happenings with local frogs…on the other side of the country. 
A call from her grad school frenemy, Alex, is enough to open a larger investigation. But can two newly minted grads save anything when the Earth itself is the heart of the problem?
The last time a global change of this magnitude happened, the dominant species was wiped out. Can Priya and Alex keep humanity from going to way of the dinosaurs? Or is the shift unstoppable? 

Dissonance is a companion novella to the thriller Resonance.


Jason Mondy isn’t a hero.

Pulling two children from a house fire is just part of the job, but he certainly isn’t comfortable with reporters calling him at all hours of the day. Add in that his live-in girlfriend has suddenly moved out and taken all his furniture, his life is upside down.

It seems everything he does triggers something else. Even just a simple trip home to find some rest leads his adoptive mother to sit him down and tell him that she’s kept something from him for over twenty-six years.

Armed with only this stunning new piece of information, Jason embarks on a quest to find the truths buried deep in his past. As he searches, one by one the pieces of his life fall like dominoes.

And the more he uncovers, the more everything he thought he knew about himself and his past begins to unravel . . .

What happens when the facts aren't the truth?






When Nina meets Ben she thinks she's finally found it all.

But Ben has secrets. Ben travels. And Ben knows things he's keeping from Nina.

As Nina starts to put the pieces together, she has some hard choices to make. But not as hard as the ones Ben deals with.

What do you do when the man you love is doing something you can't let happen?

How do you react when the woman you love finds out everything?

Brenna’s sister is missing, and hell has broken loose in the form of the Landa Landa. Always the savior, always the fighter, Brenna is determined to bring in the creature haunting the east coast. She’s also one of the few people who knows how to deal with an outbreak like this. But she’s stronger than she ever knew, and the Aellai is real…
