What would you do?


We've all heard of sibling rivalry. But what would it be like if your father pitted you against your half brother? What if this went on all you life? Can you imagine being the heir or worse, being the spare?

A good writer friend, Aliyah Burke and I explored these topics in two short summer books for Passion In Print due to be released in August. Aliyah's book Something Tangible tells Brett Kingston's side of the story, while in Unexpected Consequences, I tell about Asa Kingston the golden child.

The premise is this, that in order to assume the head of Midas Development, Asa and his brother Brett are given assignments by their father, Jules. Yes, the worlds biggest manipulator and he makes no effort to hide this at all.
The two boys are sent to different coast to acquire land that "papa" wants to develop. The challenge is, who ever gets the deal done the quickest wins the company.

These two stories are nice short reads, perfect to take to the beach on your ereader of to enjoy while sitting beside the pool. Another awesome reason to check out these two tales is the contest Ms. Burke and I are running. Go to our websites, read the excerpts, answer the questions, and follow the directions to enter. You'll be put in a drawing to receive a PDF form of Something Tangible and Unexpected Consequences along with a $20.00 gift card from either Barnes and Nobel or Amazon.

Thirsty Thursdays....














From Tejas Conspiracy Incident at Cold Creek. published by Passion In Print on sale now as an ebook coming soon to print.

Tyrone Calhoun Dixon is a Texas Ranger sent to find the murder of a judge. Instead, he runs into a woman that steals his heart no matter how much he thinks the Tin Star on his chest can save him.

Trailing behind the men, Lily watched while Lance Reese and Dexter mounted their ponies. She looked on as Patrick squeezed his son’s leg to wish him well. A shadow blocked the afternoon’s rays. Lily glanced to her left and found Ty, hat in hand, standing beside her. Fear made her blood run cold.
“You’ll be going,” she whispered.
He nodded. “I told Patrick I’d take Dex’s place out on the round up.”
Lily bit her bottom lip. “You won’t be coming back.”
Ty stared ahead for a moment, then turned to look at her.
“No Lily, I won’t be coming back.”
An emptiness the likes she’d never known from Frank filled her soul.
