I’m very excited to announce that SHADOW HARVEST, my 7th Sydney Rye mystery, is up for pre-order. It will be live August 8th, 2015. I’m having a blast working on this book and I hope you’ll all have as much fun reading it.
On a private island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Sydney Rye is studying hard, learning about the structure of the vigilante network Joyful Justice and their active missions. Finally comfortable being the inspiration of the organization, she is preparing to take her place as their leader.
However, when Sydney Rye’s good friend and fellow Joyful Justice council member, Merl, goes missing in Shanghai, she and her faithful dog, Blue, rush to the People’s Republic to track him down. Following Merl’s trail leads Sydney to probe deep, dark corners of corruption where she witnesses atrocities that make her already cold blood freeze.
With time running out and powerful forces closing in on her, Sydney is willing to risk everything to save her friend, but will everything be enough? Find out in SHADOW HARVEST.
FOUR KISS is finally out! When I first started writing this serial I thought I’d stop at Three, but Darling and her world just couldn’t be contained in three installments. In fact…there will be TWO MORE at least in this series. I have FIVE and SIX KISS on the docket, coming out in June and July. Who knows where it’ll go from there? For now here’s a little snippet of FOUR KISS. Enjoy!
This is the fourth time I’ve tried this. I hope you received my earlier messages. Only 4% are found and responded to. If you have no idea what this is, what the Deep Currents of the Universe are then let me explain briefly.
Think of the Universe like your ocean. Big, impossible to fully explore, and filled with life. In my world we first started putting messages into bottles in order to track the currents of our seas. When another dimension responded it shocked us. It’s possible in your world the dimensional portals are still unknown to your scientists. After decades of study they are still mostly unknown to ours. We continue to use the same methods we did over a century ago. Though now it is the currents of the Universe that we throw our bites of data into.
But I have not broken all protocol, and risked my career, in order to talk about my world or the methodology of The International Council for the Exploration of the Universe. I did it to continue to share with you the interviews of Darling Price. She is the most powerful being in the entire universe and I’m beginning to see that her reasons for sitting and talking with me are all her own. When this started I believed it was possible we were holding her, in some way controlling her, but now I know that is impossible.
Darling Price cannot be held by our conventional methods. Even the height of our technology has no effect on her. The woman can travel between dimensions! An ability we thought limited to Gods and their offspring. But Darling Price is mortal, though her life is much longer than any average being. She is neither deity nor magical. The more I learn of her the less I understand. However, my faith in her ability to stop the zombies, to save our world and all of those affected by this horrendous plague, stays strong.
I was up before the sun and was waiting in the interrogation room when Darling was brought in by the guards. She looked incredible, her black hair falling in waves around her elegant, bare shoulders. Darling’s black leather pants molded to her lush hips. Her sleeveless tank top, ribbed with a scooped necked, exposed the cleft of her cleavage. She slid into the chair across from me and reached for the pack of cigarettes I’d brought for her. It was only half full and she raised her eyebrows when she noticed the deficit.
“I’ll get you more,” I said.
She nodded. “I know.”
I looked down at my notes, pretending to familiarize myself with them. I’d spent hours last night and this morning poring over them, searching for clues, ways to get her to share her knowledge. “When we left off yesterday Emmanuel had carried you into a stream and something shifted. He told you that you were ‘home’.”
“Yes,” Darling said, sitting back in her chair, taking an unlit cigarette with her. “Home.”
