Desperate Journeys

Cover-Final copy

I wanted to give to you the first glimpse of the front and back covers of my latest book, Desperate Journeys. It’s my first book exclusively featuring suspenseful, action-packed crime stories. I plan to release it in softcover format next week.

Many thanks to Scott Harris, Yvonne Deane, TM Blayte, Karen Stanford, Pamela Read, Beth Kennedy, and Ute Lark for volunteering to read and provide feedback and suggestions regarding early drafts of every one of these five stories. Your generous efforts proved invaluable.

This labor of love began years ago as five very short stories, also known as microfiction, that I’d written and published over the years. I kept hearing from readers saying they thought the ideas behind these tales had the potential to become full-blown stories or perhaps even their own novels. This book features greatly enhanced and expanded versions of those very short stories of long ago. May you find them worthy of your time.

With Love,
