Met any interesting killers lately?

Killer Protocols (Richard Paladin Series)
Richard Paladin works in the shadows eliminating terrorists, spies, and just general riff-raff who threaten the security of the United States. At least, he assumed that's who he'd be killing when he was hired into a secret department of the Environmental Protection Agency. But when one of his "clients" turns out to be a seemingly harmless Missouri housewife, then he's ordered to eliminate the owner of the local northern Virginia bar he frequents, he starts to ask himself a few questions-like what any of this has to do with the U.S. Government's reluctance to sign the Kyoto Protocol. Still, if he can run the gauntlet of spies and goons who keep cropping up unexpectedly, he might just be able to hold onto his job and keep doing what he loves-arranging fatal accidents and suicides. Because Richard Paladin hasn't got a clue what he would do for a living if he loses his job as a government killer.

Clean Coal Killers (Richard Paladin Series)
When terrorists threaten the U.S. power grid, it's time to send in Richard Paladin, America's top Environmental Protection Agent. At least, that's how Paladin's new boss, Frank, describes the assignment. But when Paladin starts digging through the personnel files at a Pennsylvania coal-fired power plant, he finds a lot more than the EPA bargained for-like a partner who's not playing straight with him, a security guard who appears more spook than goon, a stripper who's a little too interested in him, and an old flame he knows is a professional agent. And even though someone really is leaking security information about the plant, his fellow government thugs are more concerned with something else, something that smells a whole lot like corruption on a congressional scale. But Paladin's in Pennsylvania to do a job, and despite the distractions of temptresses and thugs, he damned sure plans to find the leak-and plug it.

The Killer Trees (Richard Paladin Series)
A logging company's employees have been turning up mysteriously dead. Terrorist tree huggers seem the likeliest culprits, and when what's at stake is a contract to fell a national forest in Oregon-and the President of the United States just happens to be good friends with that company's CEO-it's time to send in Richard Paladin, America's top Environmental Protection Agent. But Paladin may just face his toughest challenge yet, because his adversary displays all the talents of a professional killer. Add a haunted wood into the mix, and it's an assignment Paladin may need all his luck to survive.

It's All In Your Mind (Books We Love Fall Sale Series)
17-year-old Vija Skalbe wants to be an all-American girl-no matter how hard her parents try to impose their strict Latvian standards on her. Then one day Nolan, a folksinger, steals her heart at a coffeehouse.

When Nolan stops at their table, it's Vija's friend, Caprice, who does all the talking. But it is Vija who gets his phone number-and later the back seat of his motorcycle. Soon she is cruising from one adventure to another, dizzy with joy, her new-found freedom and the excitement of being with the kind of guy who is a challenge.

However, when Vija's father has a heart attack, she must take over running the family lawn-care business. She feels overwhelmed until sweet brainiac Joel volunteers to help. He shares the workload and lifts her spirits with his humor. But it is Nolan who fills her heart.

It doesn't matter that Nolan wants everything his way. Or that he's constantly eyeing other girls. Or that he can be pouty and punitive. Or that he says she's seeing things all wrong. Until it does matter. But Vija's in so deep. Will she deal with Nolan's controlling tactics, or is she too far under his spell?

**********

Brain surgeon Dr. Danny Tilson is about to perform the most astounding case of his entire medical career. With utmost concentration, he must remove a cyst and prevent the spillage of thousands of parasitic particles into the patient's brain.

As silence envelopes the operating room, it is shattered by an alluring woman with a velvet voice and aqua eyes. Danny's life will never be the same.
Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know ... who's in the OR
A sequel is in the making, although both books will stand alone.
**********

Diana and Peter Devlin are no ordinary couple. Their careers land them in the same tumultuous journey towards the same end result. Both the feisty pilot and astute anesthesiologist are needed for a major organ transplant while the donor and recipient's families become entwined and an unforgettable surgeon displays something other than his surgical knowledge.

Both Diana and Peter do far more than maneuver an airplane and anesthetize in the operating room in this layered, masterful turn of events.
Outcome, a Novel: There's more than a hurricane coming ...

Piano Lessons (The Angel of Death)

Imagine my surprise then when I bumped into Klara again. To steal another writer’s phrase, she’d been blown into the same small German town by the winds of war. Had it not been for her flaming red hair, I would not have recognized her. She’d lost weight. Who hadn’t? Her face was raw-boned, causing the eyes to appear even larger and darker than I remembered them. She was two ahead of me in the ration-card line, hugging herself warm in her thin coat.

Who was Klara? Who was Georg, and who killed Theo? Read more about one writer's fascination with Klara as he tries to find the truth about her and the men in her life.

A very brief blurb about Tomorrow Blossoms

Woman is apprehensive when husband finds son she gave up as an unwed teen, aware he's not the father. Not until husband dies does she meet son's family and learns it's the family of the boy who turned her away as a pregnant teen.

Tomorrow Blossoms

5 of 5 stars from Limerence Magazine. "Every once in a while, it's good to read a book with some drama. Joyce DeBacco's Tomorrow Blossoms is definitely that book."

So Wonderful as Want in E-book or paperback.

In early Southwest Florida before and during the land boom of the twenties, a young woman's childhood dream of marrying well seems doomed until she meets an ambitious land developer who's interested in more than just her land. Her dream within reach, she now must choose between the man who can make that dream come true, or the man who's been there for every joy, every sorrow in her life. Sadly, she chooses the dream. Years later, she's had it up to her jeweled earlobes with the grand life. Then the two men who love her decide to enter local politics and she has another choice to make. Will she choose the candidate who wants to further develop the sun-kissed coast, or jeopardize her marriage by supporting the one who wants to preserve it for future generations?

So Wonderful as Want

"I love that this is not a regurgitated story; it is completely unique. Without spoiling the story, this story starts in 1911 & moves us forward for about twenty years. During that time, there are dreams of a young girl, joys, tears, tragedy, & heartbreak- & I'm only naming a few! When you curl up to read this fascinating book, be sure you have plenty of time to devote as you won't want to put it down again until you are finished."

Snowed in Together
What secrets are revealed when six teens are Snowed in Together at school for a weekend?

Wes and his best buds, Tony and Jeff, have enough brain power to fuel the entire sophomore class, but when it comes to their social lives, they are totally inept. So they volunteer to organize the art room on Saturday knowing three certain cheerleaders will be there for practice. Trouble is, none of the guys can come up with a plan to take advantage of the opportunity to be the only six students in the building.

Then, thanks to a freak snowstorm, they're snowed in, which isn't so bad when the girls of their horniest dreams are there, too. Maybe it could give Wes the chance to make his fantasies about Ellyce come true! However, the last thing Wes expects is to be caught in a game that forces everyone to share his deepest secret. He fears if Ellyce discovers the story of his alcoholic father and abandonment by his mother, she'll never want anything to do with him. She's the girl of his dreams, but can he resist signals Tiffany keeps sending him if Ellyce shuts him out?

He could not however, have foreseen the circumstances which now throw the world's weather into the turmoil "Climate Control" was created to ease.

Trading Faces
Two romances in one book!
What if you went to sleep plain and woke up beautiful--or vice versa? How would that affect your love life!?!

An "Ugly Betty" and a Popular Beauty wind up trading faces-and lives-and the situation is not what either one expected.

When 15-year-old Darcy Doane wakes up as Cybil Sheffield, she is thrilled. Cybil is everything Darcy has ever wanted to be. Pretty. Popular. Only all the attention isn't exactly what Darcy expected. Especially when her own brother, Joey, is crushing on her. Gross. But then there's Devon, the real Cybil's boyfriend ....
Cybil is shocked when she looks in the mirror and sees a face she totally doesn't recognize. She thought not always being the center of attention might be a good thing, but being invisible is hardly bearable. Even her boyfriend, Devon, looks right through her! How can she survive when the only people (except a family of strangers) who even know she's alive are three dipsticks she can't remember ever seeing before? And why hasn't she ever noticed her new "brother," Joey, before?

With the school play, potential boyfriends and an A-List party coming up, Darcy and Cybil have a lot to work out. There's a learning curve for both of them, especially after they are caught fighting at school and forced by the principal to help her at a Return-to-Work project for displaced women.

Trouble is, how do they get their own lives back? And who ends up with what guy?

In my younger days, I had the honor of being invited to visit the German Naval Academy at Flensburg. I spent a total of 4.5 continuous years on sea duty in the U.S. Navy. I visited many of the locales in my novella and the sailing tactics employed in the Fiction/Sea Story are based on those I learned in school. Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas
