Breezee's Shared Custody

Recently divorced loan payment advisor Dave Davis wants to move on with his life. Trouble is, he hasn’t gotten over his hot kindergarten teacher ex-wife Sheila. It would be easier if he didn’t have to see her, but that is unavoidable; they share custody of a darling little Basset Hound named Breezee, the dog that Dave brought up from a pup. 


Career criminal Leonard Tarnowski, Jr, a crazy but capable arsonist for hire, wants Sheila Davis for his very own. That she seems to be longing for her ex is a problem, but eliminating problems is Lenny’s job. There’s also another guy that must go. Lenny isn’t too fond of Davis’s dog, either.


Tarnowski doesn't kill Dave; he frames him for a dastardly crime to get him out of of Sheila's mind. But in his excitement he forgets about the dog, Breezee. She, however, hasn't forgotten him, the only person she doesn't like. And so, while her master languishes in jail, she's working with a couple of free-lance detectives to track him down.

1st Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles

 

Humble hero Kevin Johnson, a small boy blessed with quick reflexes and nerves of steel, has to stay in rural Wisconsin with grandparents he’d met once. Isolation and boredom are on his agenda until he learns about a side of the family that had been hidden from him. Among other things, he’d had a great-great-grandfather who started working in the auto industry in 1904 when he was Kevin's age, and a great-grandfather who drove in the 1927 Indianapolis 500. Too bad his career ended in a tragic wreck, landing him behind bars. Now Kevin's grandfather wants help reproducing that ill-fated car, believing it could redeem the old racer and mend their broken family. But before they remove one rusted bolt from the relic they're starting with, the pushy pianist from next door talks Kevin into showing it to her. It's the event that changes his life forever.

2nd Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles

 

Kevin and his grandparents, plus Desiree and hers, are preparing to launch his career in a Baby Grand, cars two-thirds the size of the NASCAR ones they resemble. They're doing it on the sly so as not to stress-out his on the brink of divorce parents, which is causing him a little stress of his own. He's also concerned about his abilities. Doing impressive things on a grassy field with a battered BMW 3 Series is one thing. Competing on a race track full of cars is another. Making matters worse, there’s a downturn in everyone’s mood and Desiree won't even talk about it. 


Having been sworn to secrecy has Desiree in a quandary. Maybe keeping the truth from Kevin is for his own good, but what if it's not? And what'll happen to their relationship when, not if, he finds out that she's been holding out on him? She's also worried about her fresh out of alcohol rehab mother. Could she possibly be ready for a new man in her life? The last minute addition to Kevin's pit crew has disaster written all over it, too.

Baby Grand Oppportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

3rd Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles 

 

When Kevin gets an almost to-good-to-be-true offer for his Baby Grand, he takes it. Then he lands a deal to drive professional football player Andy Baldacci’s full-size, high-powered late model stock car. But another company with a controversial sponsor takes control of the team and Kevin, their real objective. He doesn’t want to drive for them, but his family stands to lose everything if he doesn’t honor his contract. Making matters worse, Desiree is out.


Through binoculars from the grandstands, Desiree spots Kevin's new so-called personal assistant wearing a skin-tight imitation racing suit. Suddenly seeing logic in the "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" adage, she pitches her chassis set-up skills to a driver having trouble with her car—a little cutie that has eyes for Kevin—and gets herself and her friend Tiffany onto her team. Then the real trouble begins.
