Subscribe to read Chapter 1 FREE!

Little did Lizbeth suspect that transferring out of the rundown Army fire department dispatch office into the high-tech one at the Air Force would be like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Literally. And it only gets hotter.


“Angel Hero is alive with feeling, both sexual and spiritual. By turns vivid and gritty, ethereal and romantic, this exquisite book tells a love story that evokes laughter, tears, and wonder in equal measure.”


Elaine Madison, Ph.D.
Professor of Literature, Hawaii Pacific University, playwright


“Exquisitely woven thriller…compelling…escalates from ‘just another ordinary day at the office’ to a shocking and terrifying crescendo as the psychopathic antagonist spreads fear and terror…this is ‘Ghost’ meets ‘Psycho’.”


Rick Smith, author, “How to Master  Self-Hypnosis in a Weekend”


“Captivates from page one…brutal crime coupled with tender romance…deep spiritual connection with love of her life…convincing, emotionally satisfying.”

Rosemary Mild, mystery and memoir author

Gates, Dreams, and Feral Chickens

Suddenly, I awoke from a dream: I look through my sheer living room curtains. Barry’s BMW and my Hyundai sit side by side in the darkened garage. The streetlight shining in front of our house illuminates a man between our cars walking toward our house. He doesn’t look threatening. I don’t know him. I’d recognize…

A Free-Roaming Cat Family and Me (Part 4)

During frequent downpours in our rainy mountain valley, the cat family stayed dry. Mama Cat moved them from patio to under the house when they turned six weeks old. They were safer there, sleeping on top of boogie boards and ice chests and Barry’s and my cardboard boxes. I’m glad this is Mama Cat’s last…

A Free-Roaming Cat Family and Me (Part 3)

Part 3 Before the cats appeared, I’d hung a bird feeder in a Madagascar Dragon Tree. This changed the ecology of the down-sloping backyard overflowing with strawberry guava, tangerine and banana trees, ferns, and anthurium plants (which my mom used to call “little boy flowers”). Dozens of rice birds, cardinals, and a few wild green parrots…
