The Assassin's Wife- Shakespeare said "All the world's a stage." For drama professor Meg Coles, the master's words have just become a terrible reality. From Idaho to Seattle to Alaska, Meg must play her latest role with unfailing skill-the role of fugitive. The only problem is that this is no stage play. One missed line will lead to sudden death. To survive she must get the proof she needs to expose a ghost corporation that illegally dumps nuclear waste into the ocean. Will she live long enough to stop a renegade US president bent on silencing her?

My Memories of a Future Life - Episode 1 of 4: The Red Season

Here's my new book:
My Memories of a Future Life
Reviews from the US and UK:

'Spellbinding... a hypnotic experience'
'I was hooked - grabbed immediately'
'Beautiful, simple, evocative'
'Groundbreaking fiction'

Here's what it's all about...

If you were somebody’s past life…

What echoes would you leave in their soul?
Could they be the answers you need now?

It’s a question Carol never expected to face. She’s a gifted musician who needs nothing more than her piano and certainly doesn’t believe she’s lived before. But forced by injury to stop playing, she fears her life may be over. Enter her soulmate Andreq: healer, liar, fraud and loyal friend. Is he her future incarnation or a psychological figment? And can his story help her discover how to live now?

A novel in the vein of The Time Traveller’s Wife, Vertigo and The Gargoyle, My Memories of a Future Life is much more than a twist on the traditional reincarnation tale. It is a multi-layered story of souls on conjoined journeys – in real time and across the centuries. It’s a provocative study of the shadows we don’t know are driving our lives, from our own pasts and from the people with us right now. Like Peter Shaffer’s plays The Royal Hunt of the Sun and Equus, it asks questions about what we believe, what we create and how we scare and heal each other.

Above all, it’s the story of how one lost soul searches for where she now belongs.

Excerpt:

"Say, I know what. Let me call my old friend, Herb Adams," said Smith, picking up his telephone and punching in the telephone number of the FBI field office in Minneapolis.

Herb Adams, the special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Minneapolis/St. Paul field office, was a friend of Smith's from his FBI days. Six foot six inches tall, Adams still retained the powerful build from his college days as a fullback on the University of Nebraska football team. He was one of the Bureau's highest ranking black agents. Unlike more ambitious agents, Adams did not view his assignment to the Northland as being exiled to Siberia.

Most agents wanted to be in high visibility field offices such as New York, Atlanta, or Los Angeles. Adams, in contrast, felt that his abilities would shine through no matter where he was and that the rather sleepy pace of the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul was just about right.

Even though he had known Smith for over twenty years, Adams still did not know the true nature of his friend's occupation. As far as Adams knew, Smith had left the Bureau about twelve years ago, when they were still earning their stripes, to become a security official with the State Department, unexpectedly. Adams had thought at the time that Smith's move was odd -- to leave a high-profile job as an FBI agent to become a faceless bureaucrat at the State Department. Shortly thereafter Smith had resigned from State to become an independent security consultant.

Although Adams thought it was curious that Smith had taken that path, he was pleased that his old friend seemed to be happy and prospering as an outside consultant. Adams had always found it funny, though, that Smith never talked business from the day he left the Bureau -- even when he was on his own as an independent consultant. It was unlike the gregarious Smith he had known while they were struggling as young special agents. Even though they didn't get together as often as they did when they were both in the Bureau, Adams always enjoyed his telephone chats with Smith.

When he heard that his friend was on the telephone, Adams dropped what he was doing to take the call.

"Hey, George, how've you been?"

Adams absentmindedly picked up the scuffed and well-worn leather football that had been sitting on his credenza. It was a memento from his University of Nebraska football days. He had made the winning touchdown in a close game with Notre Dame and had received the game ball for his efforts. On it were inscribed all of his classmates' signatures; some of whom had moved into the major leagues and were now big-time players. Herb always loved to hold that football when he was speaking on non-official business; it was like a talisman that the world was a much nicer place than what he saw in the course of his normal activities.

"Great, Herb. How have you been?"

"Nancy is looking at colleges; she may want to go east. Both Beth and I are really excited, but I've got to tell you, I'm too young to have someone in college."

"I know how you feel. When Charlie went to the University of Virginia this fall, his mom and I cried."

"How is Adele? Is her shop in Georgetown doing okay?"

"Adele's doing great, her shop had some shaky times at the start, but it's been going great guns since May. But that's not why I called."

"Oh?"

Herb replaced the football on to his credenza and sat upright in his seat.

"You know that I've been working as an outside consultant to the State Department."

"Yeah."

"One of my jobs is to help them maintain a network of special couriers for sending messages and packages internally around the continental United States."

There was a pause at the end of the line.

"I didn't know that State used special couriers internally."

"As you can imagine, it isn't publicized for obvious public relations reasons, but you can imagine that certain messages just cannot be sent over public telephone lines, by mail, or by Federal Express."

"I suppose so," Adams said; he was all business. "I guess that's why the State job was so interesting. How can this simple special agent be of help?"

"I'll be blunt. One of our couriers didn't show up at the appointed time and place. We think that something happened to him. Herb, this has to be handled with kid gloves. You can't file a field report on this."

"I understand. What information can you give me?"

"His name is Richard Winslow from Seattle, Washington. He was on Northwest Flight 8 from Seattle, Washington, this morning and arrived in Minneapolis/St. Paul about 5:00 p.m. He was supposed to transfer to Northwest Flight 376 for Washington's National Airport, scheduled to take off at 6:05 p.m. He never boarded that flight."

"Maybe he just decided to take a later flight."

"For reasons I can't discuss, these messengers are not the kind that would deviate from the schedule. Besides, if I told you, I'd have to kill you," said Smith, trying to joke his way out of an awkward moment.

Adams did not appreciate the humor. Smith was not the type to tell jokes, or lies. And when he tried, it was obvious.

*****

A STORY SO REAL THAT IT IS BECOMING REAL --

A very realistic science fiction thriller about the accidental discovery of mysterious, but mute, objects in the ocean in 1967 and what happened when they woke up in 1993 and began sending signals to outer space. Mike, pulled back into a clandestine agency to finish the job he began over twenty-three years ago as a. navy ensign , is strangely attacked by gangs of what look like ordinary Americans. Attacks he can handle, but he is shaken when he learns that a revered friend has died. Will the death of Mike's friend mean that the secret of these mysterious objects will be locked forever in the dark ocean bottom?

46 four and five star reviews on Amazon US and UK. 98,250+ words. Many more on other platforms. 354 pages.

This book is so realistic that readers often finish the book wondering, "if this story might not be fiction at all, but something very real and very disturbing."

Strongly recommended by noted U.S. book critic Alan Caruba, who says, "If you read just one novel in 2011, make it Falling Star."

Falling Star | Print

This book actually describes events which eventually became true in chilling detail such as the 2010 Russian spy ring in the United States, the recent discovery of a mysterious object in the Baltic Sea, and now the super secret military force called JSOC. Get it before it becomes nonfiction or disappears in the hands of men in black.

How do you have a "casual Friday" at the naked office?

Most reviewers compare these cartoons favorably to Gary Larson's "Far Side." Well-known cartoonist Rick Parker calls me a "very dangerous man."

5 four and five star reviews on Amazon since its release in May.

I recommend The Royal Sheikh. One review on Goodreads said "This is a super good beach read. If you look at my books, I'm not a reader of romance, but this was charming. I would certainly recommend it to the romance crowd." They are right and it's cheap, only EUR 0,99!

The Perfect BMW (Black Man Working) .99 cents

The sun had risen by the time Sheila slowly awoke from her slumber. She rolled over to her left and peeked at the clock on the nightstand, seven ten a.m. Sheila closed her eyes and allowed herself to sleep a little longer.

As she dreamed the words, “I’m a gorgeous bride. Halle Berry eat your heart out…” could be heard softly escaping through her lips. Finally opening her eyes she was surprised to find two small childlike eyes peering down at her. Abruptly she sat up and found that she was alone in bed.

“Ah, what are you doing here?” she went as she dug sleep out of her eyes and squinted at the bright sunlight ushering in through the window blinding her temporarily. The child stood peering and not answering. She looked around for her robe on the bed.

“Where’s Neal… I mean your father…” Jason still stood unmoved and his lips remained glued.

“Great a no talker… You’re potty trained, right?” She reached over and slipped on her robe getting out of bed. That’s when she saw the hastily scribbled note left on the nightstand.

She read, “Early morning show… I’ll make it up to you… Love you…” She gave the kid a look and then said to him, “Your father is a real piece of work…”

Hi, greetings and best wishes for an enjoyable weekend, twelve glowing reviews (5 and 4 star).

If you are in a mood for historical fiction this summer, try Wings Of Freedom

Excerpt from the latest review (June 20, 2012) on amazon.com by Serena Fairfax (UK)

"There are diverse strands in the book that is also a sweet, gentle romance between a middle-class English woman and an Indian man.... The tone of the book is indeed pleasing and the major character is a driven and ingenious man in more ways than one who faces up to many challenges in an honourable fashion. An enjoyable, well-researched read."

The Dancing Boy

Ex-soldier Tom Gillet returned to Afghanistan to search for the boy who saved his life. He was stunned by the complexity of the challenges he faced.
Far beyond the corridors of official power, he entered into a maze of corruption, betrayal and child sex slavery. He found that evil threatened his life. He found an evil so profound that it threatened everything he cared about.

The Dancing Boy

Hi, something perhaps a little different.

On a hot sweltering day in Afghanistan a young British soldier is dragged back from an IED by a small Afghan boy. Luckily he lost a foot and not his life.
The small Afghan boy wasn't so fortunate. His family was killed by the Taliban as a warning to those foolish enough to help the coalition forces, and he was sold into a child trafficking ring as a dancing boy.
The young soldier on the threshold of PTSD discovers the boy's dilemma, and riddled with guilt takes it upon himself to return to Afghanistan to search for the boy in the hope of finding him a better life.
But what he encounters is betrayal, lies and horrors in a world he never knew existed.
