Excerpt:

“No, Mark,” Eva said. “He didn’t imply anything. You don’t know him. I do. He was spelling it out. Neuroscience. Plain and simple.”

“Don’t you think I know that? I just didn’t want it to be true.” Mark looked squarely at Eva. “Here’s my epiphany: I helped save the woman’s life who was instrumental in my brother’s death.” He hung his head, fighting back a lump in his throat. His eyes stung. If Mark ever got near that woman again, he vowed to rip her heart out. “It wouldn’t surprise me if she masterminded the whole damned thing. Kidnapping the real Beth Coulter. Engineering the metal cyborgs. Recruiting terrorists. Stealing research. Sabotaging Eric’s mission and killing 152 people. All while she’s hell-bent on her way to world-building and terraforming the outer reaches before anybody else gets there.” He wanted to tell her the rest of it. He just didn’t have the strength. “Does that about sum it up?”

Eva stared at him. The color ebbed from her face. “I need a drink.”

Excerpt:

Andrea Minotti had learned how to bust down doors when she worked as a police officer. After the separation, she had trouble sleeping, and she began spying on her ex-husband, Enzo, driving by his rented bungalow at all hours of the night.

Around three in the morning, she awoke drenched in sweat from a nightmare. Something told her to check on Enzo. She found a strange car parked behind her husband’s in the driveway. For more than an hour, she waited outside in her car, but no one stirred inside the house. Had Enzo and this new friend left in someone else’s car?

Finally, she couldn’t take the suspense any longer. She lurched from the car and padded down the driveway to the back door of the police detective’s small, wood-frame house.

Using the technique taught at the police academy, she slammed her torso into the door. It popped open and she stepped inside the laundry room, walked through the kitchen, and rounded the hallway that led to Enzo’s bedroom. When she got to the door, two naked men confronted her. One was her husband, gripping a baseball bat.

“What the hell are you doing, Andrea?” he yelled. “I could have knocked your god-damned teeth out.”

She sized-up the naked stranger and then met her husband’s gaze. “What the hell are you doing?”

Excerpt:

As the firestorm raged, her mind floated away from the horror. She was a young child again, sitting on her father’s lap, following his finger as it traced words on the page. She giggled and squirmed with excitement as the story unfolded, peeking ahead, eager to find out how the tale would end. Her mother leaned toward her from the adjacent chair, her smiling face awash in the light of the reading lamp. This is our secret, Arti. You can’t tell anyone. She could hear herself answer, I promise.

When the story was done, she reached across with her tiny hand and closed the book’s cover. She smiled up at her parents expectantly, waiting to say the ritual words together. And they lived happily ever after.

From somewhere in the cloud of her delirium, Arti Penderhagen heard the books on the shelves call to her, drawing her back to the present. Words echoed from their pages, guiding her hand along their bindings, showing her the way out.

Excerpt:

Mary glanced down a pastel-colored corridor that now was mired with fingerprints from children wishing to find something to do or perhaps leaving an initial of a friend. She followed the lines on the wallpaper that led to the room and to Jackson. Anger and discuss swelled within her as she thought of the time and life she had given away to him. Recounting the memories, times together, she thought it had meant something to him. Wonderful things had been accomplished by both of them, or so she thought. Where had this stranger entered into their life?
Angry tears ripped at her eyes. She wondered how he could have done such a thing. There was no reason to change, no reason to become what he was now. She had raised their son; she thought she had done her best. Besides, he wanted this child, he begged for a son. She kept up the house, perhaps not a spotless one, but livable and comfortable. Life wasn’t that bad, really. What had gone wrong?

Author Interview:

How many books do you currently have published? 2 books are currently published

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why? On The Verge is my favor because it allowed me to expose myself to a variety of characters within the same main character, Jackson Stafford

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release? Yes, I’m currently working on a new Jackson Stafford thriller.

What do you enjoy most about writing? Writing allows me to become anyone I wish.

Do you ever get writer’s block? Yes but I step away from my work and take a different perspective of the character.

Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why? In On The Verge, Jackson Stafford has multiple personalities, all unique. I must say Carl is the favorite probably because he knows now laws or standards.

What lessons have you learned since becoming a writer? Do you have any tips for new writers? Be patient, but be vigilant about your skill and talent. Never be afraid to launch out.

If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why? New readers should read On The Verge first. It’s the first in the series that sets the stage for the following novels

Do you have any extras you’d like to share, like a teaser about an upcoming new release,  a summary of a deleted scene, or a teaser about a surprising plot twist or character? The next in this series, The Deception of Jackson Stafford, will explore his seduction by one of the personalities he thought was controlled in On The Verge.  His travels under the city lights of Philadelphia, PA, Los Angeles, CA, Albuquerque, NM, Los Vegas, NV, and Jacksonville, FL
and the dark streets and back highways expose many unlikely experiences for Jackson Stafford.

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read? I enjoy Dean Koontz novels.

What about television shows? Movies? Love SYFY

If you had to sum up your life as a writer in ten words, what would you say? I’ve never given up on my dreams.

Excerpt:

Pierce headed down to the hold to search for a gun. While he rummaged through one of the crates, the deck creaked behind him.

“Why is it that idiots like you live so long?” Waves of Strength asked.

“Dunno,” he said. “Is that a question you ask yourself every morning?”

He lifted another crate lid, only to find spare engine parts inside. “Bugger.”

He caught the sound of her approaching footsteps and turned, expecting a knife in her hand. To his relief, her blade was tucked into her turquoise belt.

She stepped halfway into the cramped hold, placing her hands on her tiny waist. “One day, someone will cut out that sarcastic tongue of yours, Landcross.”

“Listen, love, I know you’re sore at me, but you know as well as I do that it was an accident.”

“What if I had done it to you?” she retorted. “Would you be so forgiving?”

“I reckon I would be,” he said as she turned and stormed out. “We were under attack,” he called out after her. “Things got bloody chaotic. You just got in the way, ’tis all.”

She returned, holding a bucket of water, and in her other hand, a branding iron that glowed brighter than the lantern overhead.

“Whoa! Whoa!” Pierce said, holding out his hands. “What the bloody hell are you doing with that?”

“You shot me in the ass, Landcross! I couldn’t sit properly for months.”

Despite himself, he snickered.

She took a step forward. Pierce’s lower back slammed into the crate when he jumped back.

“And I’ve apologized for that more times than I can count. Not to mention that I did save the entire crew, remember?”

“When you shot me, it felt like fire!” she exclaimed. “You burned and scarred me!”

There was only one way to make peace. The burn would hurt like hell, but he’d dealt with pain before. At least he would see this one coming.

“Where? My arse?” he asked.
“Your chest. So I can see it.”

He nodded submissively and unbuttoned his shirt.

“Mind the chain, eh?”

Searing heat roasted his flesh and sizzled the skin over his heart. He screamed while she howled with satisfaction. Smoke rose from both the iron and him as he slid down the crate, hollering. The heat hit every nerve in his body and traveled like burning coals throughout. He swore that she held it against him longer then she needed to.

When the terrible brand finally lifted, he collapsed to his knees. His first instinct was to put his hand over the wound, but the raw, burning flesh wouldn’t allow any contact. There was now a five-inch figure-eight on his chest.

“Are we even?” he hissed through clenched teeth.

She plunged the brand into the bucket of water, which hissed and steamed.

Oui, we are even. Go to our physician, Heals with Nature” Waves of Strength turned to leave when she nodded to a crate in the corner. “The weapons are in there.”
