Honorable Mention in Year’s Top 10!

I am honored and thrilled to receive honorable mention in the Examiner’s list of 10 Best Books of 2014. Congratulations to those who made the Top 10, and to DarkFuse for having published so many of those top books!


As 2014 Steps Aside for 2015…

I always like to ruminate on the year just passed, and this year especially so.

2014 was a good one. In a couple of ways, it was the year of accomplishing what I really hoped for, but didn’t think would happen, or at least not yet.

In my law practice, I achieved something in a case that I hoped for, but didn’t think would happen–and for that I received the Excellence in Advocacy Award. Didn’t see that coming. Truly I did not.

In my writing, I had two books come out: THE JANUS LEGACY and ASH AND BONE. I knew they’d be coming because they were accepted the prior year. I had two books accepted for publication in 2015: BLOCKBUSTER (coming out mere days from now) and SKINSHIFT (coming in June 2015).

The big surprise to me was signing the 3-year/3-book deal with DarkFuse. This falls into the category of what I wished and hoped for, but didn’t think would happen, or at least not yet. I remember the day I got the email. I was doing my usual stuff on my PC in the early morning before leaving for work, and there it came, offering the deal and with it, the opportunity to be a DarkFuse Roster Author. I actually squealed when I read it!

And so here we are in 2015. I turned in the first novel under the book deal several days ago, and am already beginning to work on the concept for the next one.

Here’s hoping for an even better 2015! Happy New Year! And to my readers, a special thank-you!

Back cover synopsis for SKINSHIFT, coming in June 2015!

Beaten and left for dead by his two partners after a botched robbery, Dominic Donato wants revenge so badly he can taste it. First he must survive—alone—in a remote part of the unforgiving Mojave Desert with nothing more than the clothes on his back.

But a life-or-death encounter with a wild coyote reveals to Dominic the true secret of survival, and he will use that knowledge to make his partners pay, along with anyone else who crosses his path.

Soon Dominic will unleash his newfound power on the world, and nothing will quench his thirst for revenge.
