Breezee's Shared Custody

Divorce, Murder, and the Dog

Banker Dave Davis is arrested in the middle of the night, his dog Breezee the Basset Hound howling in protest as they're hauling him away. The charge? Killing his ex-wife’s boyfriend, who'd also been Dave’s boss. 


Dave's defense team consists of his ornery former prosecuting attorney uncle and his old investigator, plus a semi-disabled police detective turned restauranteur. Although competent, they make little progress until Breezee starts sniffing around.


The DA believes they have the right man, but one of the detectives responsible for Dave’s incarceration does not. So she digs into the case without letting on how enamored she is with their handsome suspect. 


Will Dave ever see the light of day again? If not, will Breezee get visitation rights? Will the real killer ever be found? If so, will the smitten detective get her man? And whatever happened to Dave’s girlfriend, who vanished before he was arrested?

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning
 

Baby Grand, Book 1


Unlikely hero Kevin Johnson didn’t know he had paternal grandparents until they showed up at his parents’ backyard Fourth of July party ... on a Harley ... wearing leather jackets. His father ignored them, told Kevin to say a polite hello and move on. Now Kevin has to go to rural Wisconsin and live with them. He expects a long and boring summer. His grandparents, however, turn out to be more interesting than expected. Grandma drives a yellow Mustang GT and is better at food preparation than the housekeeper Kevin had had at home. Grandpa runs Tchaikovsky Towing & Salvage, and Kevin is his new apprentice. Their first job is towing a drunk driver’s Corvette. 


The next day, Kevin’s grandparents drag him to church, where he sets eyes on the prettiest girl he’s ever seen. Surprisingly, she lives with her grandparents next door to his, not that it’ll do him any good. She’s way out of his league. Even so, she offers to help with his grandfather’s project. They’re duplicating the car that Kevin’s great-grandfather drove in the 1927 Indianapolis 500. But they’re doing more than restoring an old car. They’re after a posthumous pardon for the late great driver, whose career ended after being convicted of manslaughter.

Baby Grand, Book 2

 

Unlikely hero Kevin Johnson and his grandparents, plus his girlfriend Desiree and hers, are preparing to launch 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. Everyone expects him to carry on the family legacy where his great-grandfather left off. But that was over eighty years ago. None of them had been alive during the Golden Age of Sports, when the legendary driver did miraculous things behind the wheel. How can Kevin live up to that?

Baby Grand Opportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

Baby Grand, Book 3

 

Unlikely hero Kevin Johnson signs up to drive for Baldacci racing, a partnership headed by football great Andy Baldacci. But Andy’s partners sell him out, leaving controlling interest with a company that Kevin wants nothing to do with. He’s under contract, though, and has no say in the matter. His girlfriend Desiree is even less pleased when she's sent packing and banned from being seen with him in public.


They can’t, however, stop Desiree from being with Kevin on his own time, but he's going on the road for extended periods. So Desiree 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.

The first BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure


From the flying bridge of the Princess Rebecca, with a brilliant sunrise at his back, Jake Olson heard gunshots and an outboard motor hitting full throttle, then saw speedboat racing away from an idle floatplane. He and his crew chased down and captured the small craft that held marijuana and a dead man. They took the cargo and scuttled the boat with the body in it, then rescued the wounded floatplane pilot. Before long they were in the smuggling business, taking risks and having fun. 


But when trespassers get close to the storage building near their remote airstrip, they’re facing a security and workload nightmare. Luckily, Jake finds a former dog scout handler who might be able to solve their problem. All they have to do is restore his confidence and convince him that a life of crime can be good.
