    Default FOREVER MAN is coming soon!!!

    I am very excited and pleased to announce my July 2, 2012 release: FOREVER MAN, the first book in the FOREVER SERIES of which there are five to date!!!

    It's been an incredible experience, from the gem of an idea to the writing to "getting ready to publish" experience this past year. Thanks to everyone at Champagne Books for this amazing experience. You do more good than you know!

    FOREVER MAN

    While I waited for her to return I looked out the window, admiring the view of snow-peaked mountains when I heard the screeching of brakes and a thud, then realized someone had hit a dog with a half ton truck right in front of the restaurant. The driver, a young woman in obvious distress, jumped out and cradled the animal’s head in her lap. In an instant I turned and rushed for the stairs, taking them two at a time.
    As I reached the woman she looked up at me with stark pleading in her eyes. “I didn’t see him! Please, I need help!”
    Crouching down beside them, I carefully laid my hands on the whimpering dog. It looked like a husky, probably a sled dog. He or she was still breathing, but it was labored and loud. I could also see blood on its soft white fur. My heart instantly melted and reached out to the poor creature with its pain-filled, whiskey-brown eyes that seemed to beg me to do something. Despite the gut-wrenching plea, I felt helpless, sheer happenstance had brought this poor animal to this end and I had no power to save it from its fate.
    Hesitantly, I reached my hands out and laid them on the poor dog’s head and its eyes seemed to tell me that it knew its fate. Tears flowed and the image of the dog blurred. I felt its pain as my own as I closed my eyes in sheer anguish.
    Please God, let this beautiful creature be okay. Suddenly, something came alive inside me like a dam bursting its banks, and a great tidal wave of energy flowed through me from my very core. It was so strong it made me shake and my legs, cramping in the crouch, almost gave way.
    A surge of pure power seemed to drive through my hands into the dog as I concentrated my thoughts on it and then all I could see and feel was hot, white light surrounding me for a few brief incredibly thrilling seconds. The light blinded me, its power as strong as the noonday sun. A sense of pure aliveness electrified me, as if I was at the pinnacle of my strength and could rise up and fill the world with goodness and healing. Then, just as suddenly, the floodgates in my mind closed and the white hot energy retreated back into my hands that began to shake violently with the excess energy.
    The sensation left as abruptly as it had come and I fell back exhausted from the effort. The dog whimpered, shook itself and sat up. It looked at the two of us as if nothing had happened, its brown eyes shining and its tail wagging as if it didn’t even remember the last few minutes of its life.

    Thanks so much for your interest and have a great day!

    Best.

    Guess we're playing in a different sandbox today.

    I, too, am looking forward to my next book with Champagne, MEDIUM RARE, sequel to KILL FEE or which I shared first place for Best Book. I have he trophy to prove it.

    If you ask... But not on this format.

    There will be at least two more, one the sequel to KF, another more literary. PS: I'll send you something from the Smithsonian on your regular mail. You need to be aware that Sci-Fi is going positive, or so the author hopes.

    Yours will be here in 5 weeks. The Kill Fee sequel is not due until December. This is a hospice mystery. The staff is nutty and the victim is possessed. Just like real life!
