Breezee's Shared Custody

Divorce, Murder, and the Dog

Dave divorced Sheila because she wouldn’t stop cheating on him, an activity she still thinks is normal. Dave’s idea of normal is not an open marriage and promiscuity, so he vowed to move on with his life. Problem is, he hasn’t. Whenever he sees Sheila, his willpower vanishes. The obvious solution is to stay away from her, but that’s impossible. She finagled an agreement into their divorce decree for sharing custody of his dog, likely so she can have her way with him whenever she wants, and he hasn’t been able to resist her charms. Now he’s just another boyfriend, the others being his boss and a mysterious bad-boy bodybuilder. It’s the bodybuilder who has Dave worried; his dog Breezee doesn’t even like him, and she’s a happy-go-lucky Basset Hound. Dave doesn’t want her near him, is afraid for Sheila too. Dave’s and Breezee’s instincts are right. The bodybuilder wants Sheila for himself and is willing to do anything to make it happen.

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning

In the mid 1920s, Al Capone started an auto racing team. The owner of record was a once respected crew chief for some of the top names in the business. He’d been maintaining liquor trucks for the Chicago Mob when Ralph Capone told his brother Al about him. That’s when Al got the racing bug. Money was no object, but finding the right driver proved difficult until an unknown dirt track racer grabbed their attention. Their best and worst year was 1927. Best because of their impressive performance at the Indianapolis 500. Worst because of a horrific crash at the Illinois State Fair. Capone’s driver was charged with manslaughter, never raced again and was forgotten about. Even his great-grandson, a racing fan with his own hidden talents, has never heard of him. But he’s about to.

BoonieRats 

The first BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure


Lieutenant Jake Olson is a good man with sociopathic tendencies, tendencies that work to his advantage when he and his men are out in the bush ambushing the ambushers, sapping the sappers, and bringing on close-quarters combat like the enemy has never seen. And even though many of his men are living in a constant state of fear, most of them survive. But Jake knows he isn’t suited for a lifelong military career, so he transitions to high-priced criminal defense attorney, specializing in crimes of passion. He also has an epiphany: Too many combat veterans are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and have trouble finding work, so he opens a halfway house for homeless ones, founds an all-veterans motorcycle club, and recommends marijuana smuggling for fun and profit. The money is great but they’re working like dogs, so Jake goes on the hunt for new talent to bolster their ranks. 


First stand-alone novel in the series.

The third BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure

Mafia-connected outlaw bikers kidnap a six-year-old boy, take him to an old farmhouse and place him in the custody of a clueless stripper. They want access and alarm codes to a warehouse, and the boy’s mother can get them. They tell her the boy is safe, that they’ll return him after she hands over the codes, as long as she doesn’t call the police, but she doesn’t believe them. So while she’s stalling for time she calls the last man she ever wanted to, her son’s father, Montana horse rancher Jake Olson. His military skills were legendary when she knew him, and she needs an army, even if it’s only an army of one. Jake explains everything to his wife, even that he has a son he hadn’t known about, and books the next flight out to Chicago. But his foreman is also one of his old motorcycle club brothers, and he won’t let Jake go it alone. Neither will the rest of the old gang. So they move in on their targets together, only to get caught up in a Mob war.
