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
 

An American Dream - Episode 1


Kevin Johnson is an ordinary boy, until he becomes a hero. His girlfriend is impressed, but parents argue about things he’d never heard of. Things like his family’s auto-racing heritage, connections to a notorious gangster during the previous century’s Roaring Twenties, and the character of Harley-riding grandparents he’d met only once. Even stranger is that he’s being forced to leave the only home he’s ever known to live with those grandparents for the summer. But it turns out that Kevin needs them, and they need him to carry on the family legacy.

Formerly titled Baby Grand II: The Conspiracy

An American Dream - Episode 2 

 

Young Kevin Johnson and his grandparents, plus his girlfriend and hers, are launching his racing career. They’re doing it on the sly so his stressed-out, on-the-brink-of-divorce parents won’t find out. But Kevin is getting a little stressed-out himself. Doing impressive things alone with a BMW 3 Series is one thing. Competing on a racetrack full of cars is another. Everyone expects him to carry on the family legacy where his great-grandfather left off. How can he live up to a legend?

Baby Grand Opportunity

An American Dream - Episode 3

 

Young Kevin Johnson lands a driving job with Baldacci Racing, a partnership headed by football great Andy Baldacci. But Andy’s partners sell him out, leaving controlling interest in the hands of a company that Kevin wants nothing to do with. He’s under contract, though, and has no say in the matter. His girlfriend is even less pleased when she's banned from being seen with him in public. They can’t stop her from being with him on his own time, but he's going on the road for extended periods. So, without Kevin’s knowledge, she pitches her chassis set-up skills to another team, to stay in the game and keep an eye on the competition … competition for Kevin. It isn’t that she doesn’t trust him; she just doesn’t trust the cute little driver she’ll be working for, or Kevin’s newly assigned personal assistant.

BoonieRats 

The first BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure


Times are tough in the rust-belt port city of Duluth, Minnesota, but criminal defense attorney Jake Olson and his roguish band of military-veteran motorcycle club brothers have a sweet little marijuana smuggling operation going on. The authorities are clueless, so what could go wrong? What has already gone wrong; their operation isn’t so little anymore. They’re working like dogs, which is ironic because Jake just stopped a former dog scout handler from jumping off the roof of a tall building. Sure the guy is suicidal, but guard dogs at the airstrip would give them time to enjoy life again. They’ll turn this dog guru into a biker while convincing him that a life of crime is in his best interest. 


First stand-alone novel in the series.

One Lowly Angel

The second BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure
 

Former outlaw biker Arthur “Deuce” Donahue and guardian angel Lady Sophia are riding through the night toward Jake Olson’s Montana horse ranch, hoping to get there before the bad guys do. They’re in Arthur’s old pickup truck, which is good because there’s a rainstorm going on but bad because the truck tops out at fifty-five miles an hour and they’re trying to catch methed-up bikers on Harleys. Even so, Lady Sophia periodically glances at the speedometer while standing with her front paws on Arthur’s right thigh, looking out at the road. She has taken on the form of a small dog, in order to be less conspicuous, but still has her usual powers of being able to communicate telepathically and dish out killer headaches. Those skills, however, might not be enough for what they’re up against. Arthur overheard a plot against Jake’s family, but couldn’t find him in Sturgis. No one answered the phone at Jake’s ranch, and they couldn’t call the police because of Arthur’s criminal record, so they left a note for Jake on the front door of the house that he and his friends rented while they’re in Sturgis, South Dakota for the motorcycle rally. But the note blew away in the storm. There’ll be no backup. 


Second stand-alone novel in the series.

The third BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure

Six-year-old Jacob Robbins, the son Jake Olson doesn’t know he has, gets abducted by outlaw bikers connected to the Chicago Mob. They’re after alarm codes to a warehouse, and the boy’s mother has them. Realizing the chances of getting her son back alive are slim, she calls Jake, even though she never wanted to talk to him again. Jake promises to get him back, but his old BoonieRats MC brothers won’t let him do it alone. So they plan a military-style rescue operation and converge on their targets, traveling by air, land, and freshwater seas, only to get caught-up in a Mob war.
