New! Kindle Vella Story! Love, Lilac and Lusio

OUT NOW! New serial on Amazon’s Kindle Vella Series. Catch the first two episodes of this twisty mystery today!

Ever since writers began putting pen to paper…and other things like stone, rock, etc. serials have been a big thing. Some of the greatest writers of all time began serializing their books before they became novels. I’ve always been fascinated with serials and now…Amazon is launching Kindle Vella, serializing stories for readers. I have submitted my first one for them. It’s a shapeshifting, paranormal thriller called Love, Lilac and Lusio. I have to thank Lex Valentine for the gorgeous cover. 


Lilac Boguske hires a hitman to kill her because it’s easier than sticking to a diet. When she changes her mind, he won’t stop. He’s tried twice and failed but has four more chances to get it right. She employs struggling PI Toby Cameron to help her, putting them both in mortal danger. He knows Lusio Lannon’s true identity as a fearsome Zuni warrior with priceless gifts of supersonic hearing, unusual agility…and an unquenchable passion for murder.

Episode 1: Bone Jumper and Episode 2: Great Balls of Fire are AVAILABLE NOW!

I’ve coveted Dar Albert‘s covers forever and I have a couple now including Mating Tomeo, my Hawaiian romance set in Honolulu in 1946. It’s out TODAY on Amazon!

I love this cover and this book…it’s a story that’s important to me. Japanese residents had a very hard time after WWII ended. Their neighbors didn’t trust them and many had been secretly forced into internment camps in the islands and California…Mating Tomeo is about how two men find their way to each other in spite of everything.

Thank you Dar for my gorgeous cover!


Synopsis: In 1946 Hawaii, Tomeo Yamaguchi harbors a secret that would be considered shameful by his traditional Japanese family-he aches for the caress of other men. Which makes it particularly devastating when Tomeo’s father hires a tanomoshi-a matchmaker-to find a bride for his son. Tomeo spends time with the tanomoshi, Shin Yamada, and as the men come to know one another, deep feelings emerge, the transition from friends to lovers inevitable. They fall into a clandestine affair, their hushed and hidden lovemaking as beautiful and breathless in their eyes as it is torrid in the eyes of others. More time spent worshipping Tomeo’s body means less time finding him a suitable bride. Shin’s forsaking his duty…but mating Tomeo is worth every stolen second.

For many, the sins of the father visit themselves upon the children. But in Basho Loy’s experience, it’s the sins of his mother for which he has to pay.

Basho thinks he knows all his mother’s sins, since his mom is one sinister, mysterious figure. All his life she has been an overbearing figure he can’t emulate, and each and every day, he feels he’s failed her. Except now he’s landed a top job in Tokyo, working for the sexy, compelling Kanji Chang, and Basho believes his fortunes have changed. But Kanji also has mysteries and often gives off a sinister air. And when the two men tumble into bed, Basho is surprised when Kanji actually bites him.

Shaw and Innes are the lucky protectors of the remote Scottish island
of Eynhallow. A mysterious, rocky outcrop uninhabited except for Shaw and Innes, it is steeped in paranormal legend. When a strange man arrives by boat a few days before Christmas, they’re inclined to let him suffer the wounds he’s endured lost at sea when they rescue him. After all, he spouts a lot of misconceptions about Eynhallow’s most famous residents—the finfolk, a reputedly vicious strain of mermen of lore.

When Peter Colcross realizes his saviors are themselves finfolk and can shapeshift into human form, he is forced to rethink everything he thought about sea magic and what might have become of his wife who disappeared after leaving their Glagow home in search of Eynhallow a few years ago. He’s determined to find her because he’s read that finfolk lure women to their doom on the island. But these mermen are kind and caring creatures.

They’re also gay.

What is the mystery of Eynhallow, and will Peter ever discover the truth? And will he be able to forgive and let go of the past in order to move forward into the future?
