Breezee's Shared Custody

Dave Davis is arrested in the middle of the night, his Basset Hound Breezee howling in protest as they're hauling him away. The charge? Murdering one of his ex-wife's boyfriends, who had also been Dave’s boss. First he uncovered fraud at the bank, then his girlfriend went missing, and now this. Perfect! 


After mug shots and fingerprinting, Dave is marched naked to the showers under the watchful eye of a leering female deputy, shocked that such things are allowed. After donning his jumpsuit, he's tossed into a cell occupied by a grizzled biker who thinks his clean-cut appearance, given the surroundings, is hilarious. But he's taken-in by Dave’s tale of woe


Dave’s mother plans on storming his arraignment with a regiment of Junior Leaguers. But his uncle Bill, a former prosecutor who’s coming out of retirement and switching sides to defend him, brings her to her senses, convinces her that harassing the authorities with her political clout is a wiser move. 


Uncle Bill moves to town, along with a retired investigator who used to work for him, and sets up shop in Dave’s otherwise unoccupied house. Working with a local one-eyed private detective, Dave's best friend, they're on the trail of the real killer. But the trail is cold; they need a scenthound.

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning
 

First Book of the Gifted Racers Series  


Unlikely hero Kevin Johnson is spending the summer with grandparents he barely knows, mowing lawns, going on wrecker calls, and helping his grandfather restore a vintage race car. They’re hoping to make it look like the one Kevin's great-grandfather drove in the 1927 Indianapolis 500, but it’s a pile of junk. Even so, aside from missing his girlfriend, life is good. Good until he meets the breathtaking pianist from next door named Desiree. She makes Kevin's heart pound and the temperature seem to rise by ten degrees. Personality-wise, she's both amiable and brash: hard to stay away from, nerve-wracking to be with. She's way out of his league, and they both know it. But she also knows things about his broken family that his grandparents aren't allowed to discuss, and she's willing to talk if he'll give her karate lessons

Baby Grand Conspiracy

Formerly titled Baby Grand II: The Conspiracy
 

Second Book of the Gifted Racers Series

 

Kevin Johnson, Desiree Chantelle, and their respective grandparents are preparing to launch Kevin's racing career. The car looks promising, but he's concerned. Sure, he did amazing things with a BMW 3 Series on a freshly mowed field, and then got a full day of practice on an actual race track. But he'd been alone out there. On race day he’ll be up against a track full of experienced competitors. 


They get a last minute addition to their pit crew, Desiree’s mood plunges, and Kevin gets even more nervous. When they get to the track, he realizes that his grandfather never told him how to deal with bullies, like the one who threatened to put him into the wall, and female drivers, like the one who made him look silly on the track and then flirted with him afterward. Making matters worse, Desiree is irked at him for the flirtations.

Baby Grand Oppportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

Third Book of the Gifted Racers Series 

 

Desiree Chantelle has everything: looks, brains, and talent. Plus the soul-mate she's going to marry, gifted race car driver Kevin Johnson. Problem is, they're fifteen. Desiree could guilt her mother into signing for her, but Kevin's parents won't have it. So, as Desiree's grandmother says, she and Kevin are forced to sneak around, which is okay with her.


But Desiree's world turns upside down when the team Kevin drives for changes owners. Without notice, she's kicked out of the spotters' stand and banned from being seen with him in public. Some bimbo in a skin-tight imitation racing suit now has those duties ... and they're going on the road together.


Believing that, when it comes to guys, out-of-sight-out-of-mind is more likely than absence-makes-the-heart-grow-fonder, Desiree gets herself and her friend Tiffany onto the team of a cute little driver who's obsessed with Kevin. Then the real trouble begins.

One Lowly Angel

The second BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure
 

Horse ranchers Jake Olson and Frank Schroeder reunite with their BoonieRats biker brothers at the Sturgis, South Dakota, motorcycle rally. In their absence villains take what's dear to them. Then they lure Jake’s wife out into the wilderness to pay the ransom, intent on having fun with her. But they find gold on Jake’s property—gold he’s never seen—and work themselves into a frenzy. Leaving no witnesses and making a clean getaway takes priority. 


A former outlaw biker turned preacher and his supernatural chaperone catch wind of the scheme and rush to stop it, unaware of the Native American shaman and his apprentices waiting to make their move. A foxy grandmother undersheriff is also on the case. One step behind them all but coming on fast is Jake Olson, armed with nerve and a .357 Magnum. Saddle-up for this mystical Wild West-like thriller that takes place not in the 1880s, but the 1980s.
