Tour Banner - Operation Genocide

Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 15, 2013
Length: 356 Pages

An inhuman agenda…

In 1982, Annette Pretorius lives a life of privilege afforded to those of European descent in South Africa, but when her husband is murdered, she discovers a shattering secret: he’d been commissioned by the whites-only South African government to develop a lethal virus aimed at controlling the growth of the black population–already oppressed under the cruel system of apartheid.

A clandestine organization…

The murder came with a warning to Annette from a secretive organization: keep our secrets or you too will die. Captain Trevor Watson, Annette’s former boyfriend, is appointed to lead the investigation. Watson’s loyalty is tested as the evidence stacks against his high school sweetheart.

And the killing isn’t over yet…

When the investigation points in a terrifying direction, Annette and Watson face a wrenching choice: protect those they love or sacrifice all to save innocents from racial extermination.

It’s no secret writing is a solitary business. Not only that, it’s a business that by its nature, brings with it rejection and disappointment more often than acceptance and success.

Being the daughter of a writer, I learned all of this at a young age. There were so many conversations in our living room about agents, proposals, submissions, sales, edits and – yes – rejection. Continue reading »

When it comes to desire, they’re both pleading guilty 

In the courtroom, criminal defense attorney Iris Sinclair is cool and confident. Yet around her new client’s guardian, she loses all composure. Atlanta club owner Nash Dupree is an infamous playboy who could compromise Iris’s heart as well as her case. For once, she feels like a curvy goddess instead of a straitlaced lawyer—even if the evidence suggests what he’s looking for is strictly short-term.

No matter what the tabloids claim, Nash has made his teenage niece his first priority, and without Iris’s help he’ll lose guardianship. What began as seduction, a sweet thrill, has turned into something more—now he wants Iris forever. But proving his intentions means winning her trust before his reputation drives away the only woman who has ever captivated him, body and soul…. Continue reading »

This current post illustrates my thinking when I titled this Blog. As I decided originally,“Some of what I share will have to do with the craft and business of writing; others will be my take and/or experiences on life in general.”

The following qualifies as the latter. It’s an essay I wrote, based on a true incident in my life. Some of you may even identify with the event.

A Belief in Peaceful Coexistence:
Its Place In The Animal World

That Summer Saturday began innocently enough. The clear, pleasant morning gave no indication of what was to follow. Putting housework on hold, I took a cup of coffee out onto our back deck for a few moments of quiet reflection. Continue reading »
