The Pope's Suicide

The Pope’s Suicide

Genres: ,

The Pope is dead. It isn’t old age or a disease. He is found hanging in a bathroom while on an official visit to New York City.

All signs point to a suicide and NYPD detective Donnie Beecher is put in charge of the investigation. It’s the last assignment he wants. Because of his tragic past, he has no love for the Catholic Church. His marriage is falling apart, his teenage daughter is getting mixed up with the bad crowd.

But soon clues start piling up. What if the Pope was assassinated?

In Vatican City, young and idealistic Father O’Dwyer is beginning to wonder the same thing. Why are the cardinals around him so secretive? Why do they keep whispering about the mysterious San Marino letter?

With his superiors breathing down his neck for a swift resolution, Beecher teams up with Officer Emma Aldridge, a former nun. Failure means not just an end to his career but a shift of power in international relations which could lead to war. Together, they will need to find out what really happened to the Pope.

…and try not to get killed in the process.

The Kennedy Secret

Amazon Barnes & Noble Apple Kobo

Is it an assassination or a treasure hunt?

Gruff and exhausted from a career as a government hitman, Donovan Flood only has one last assignment before being allowed to retire. He needs to kill con man Mike Beecher although he doesn’t know why.

As it turns out, Beecher unwittingly played a role in the assassination of Robert Kennedy.

Knowing that something doesn’t add up, the two men team up to get to the truth as they are chased by mysterious assassins. They must race against the clock and their quest leads them to Vegas mobsters, powerful politicians, and KGB agents.

When their journey takes them into the jungles of Bolivia, nobody knows what to expect… or if they can even make it out alive.

New cover for The President Killed His Wife

As much as I loved the cover, it’s been bothering me for a while, something wasn’t right. So I finally managed to get some time to work on a new version. Same concept but cleaner. What do you think?

It should be in paperback as well within days.

The President Killed His Wife

The President Killed His Wife

In The Series

The President has killed his wife… on live TV, during the State of the Union address!

FBI agent Rogan Bricks is a recluse with a murky past. Just an ex-soldier happy to be low-profile. While he’s shocked watching from his mansion in Alaska, he’s not particularly distressed. He’s never cared about politics anyway.

But everything changes when he’s personally summoned to Washington to lead the investigation.

Why him? Why is his life suddenly in danger from assassins? And why is everything starting to point toward a conspiracy?

Last chance

Hello, everyone!

I need to take a moment to thank you for the great response to my new novel “I’ll Kill Her for You”. On the first day, the book was a top 25 thriller on Amazon and some of you have been leaving reviews, and you know how much I LOVE getting reviews from you 🙂

Also, I wanted to let you know that “I’ll Kill Her for You” is going up in price Friday morning, October 21. If you haven’t downloaded your copy yet, do it NOW while it’s still less than a dollar!


Finally, a little note if you’re reading using PageFlip mode and reading through the Kindle Unlimited program.

When you are done, please go to the Table of Contents and click to the last chapter or otherwise navigate to the last page outside of PageFlip. This is so that authors like me can be credited with the pages you read. Because of a huge design flaw, it seems like if you don’t do this Amazon doesn’t realize you have read the pages and authors don’t get paid. I’m sorry to bring this nitty-gritty up but this new system is making publishing more difficult every day for authors.

Thank you again everyone. Know that I’m already hard at work on a new mystery thriller which has to be the most ambitious and exciting I’ve ever written 😉


I have a new book for you

I’ve been told that new books from me are like changing the clocks, it happens twice a year. Except that in my case it’s awesome and not a chore, right? 😉

It’s been five months and I do have a brand-new book available for you. I’m really excited about this one. I’ll Kill Her for You is a taut mystery suspense thriller with a hero who is a bit unconventional.

Instead of the self-assured badass, you’ll get to meet Lawson Winslow, a young billionaire who’s inherited his fortune and doesn’t even know how to change a lightbulb. Literally.

And he’s being framed for murder!


The killer is blackmailing him and the evidence quickly piles up against Lawson. It’s only a question of days until he’s arrested. How can he prove his innocence when even his own family doesn’t believe him?

There will be some twists. There will be some turns. There will be gasps in the house.

Park Avenue Blackmail

Park Avenue Blackmail

Genres: ,

Who frames you for murder when you have no enemies?

Billionaire playboy Lawson Winslow gets a bizarre text message as he walks into the annual family Christmas ball: “I’ll kill her for you.” He thinks it’s a prank but soon after the body of a woman is found upstairs.

Evidence puts Lawson at the scene of the crime. There’s a witness. And when the killer calls again, he wants Lawson to play a dangerous game of dares. If he doesn’t, incriminating phone records will be sent to the NYPD.

He’s ill-equipped to deal with this. He’s irresponsible, he’s never had to work a day in his life, but now he needs to prove his innocence and he doesn’t even know how.

After Lawson hires the disgraced but gorgeous federal agent Bailey Holloway to help him out of this mess, they will both need to navigate treacherous secrets before the blackmailer destroys his life and his family forever.

Check out the trailer:

My newest book has a cover – I’ll Kill Her for You

Hello, ladies and gents!

I’ve been debating whether to drag out the suspense or catch you offguard with a surprise announcement. Soooo I guess I did a bit of both with the dramatic rise of the curtain on my Facebook page. I know it looked cheesy, sorry.

So my new book is called “I’ll Kill Her for You” and it’s a mystery suspense. The paperback takes forever to go through the publishing process but once that’s done I can unleash the e-book upon the world.

When? With a good tailwind I would say by the weekend 🙂 I will make an announcement as soon as it’s live.
