Bullying-the word itself brings negative connotations. It doesn’t differentiate race, gender or creed. Boundless with its grip and cruelty, the assistance of the internet leads it slithering through homes, schools, cities and countries. Meet Abigail, a victim of bullying that has hurt her mentally and physically. Hiding in the woods, away from words and hands that can hurt her is her only solace. Hannah, daughter to Cherokee Indian Chief Daniel Littlejohn, is continuing his work , after her father’s passing, locating Cherokee that perished deep in a thousand acre tract of woods to reunite them with their ancestors. At midnight is when Hannah enters the woods to be undetected. The forest seems to come alive! Walking by a stream she catches a glimpse of a girl. Hannah calls out and the mysterious girl disappears. “Who is this girl and why is she here?” Running to find her Hannah sees a pair of red eyes glaring in her direction. “Is this what father meant when he warned me about coming in the woods alone? Abigail watches Hannah. “Why does this Cherokee girl beckon me? Does she mean me harm?” Exiting the woods Hannah decides to seek help and assemble a team of trusted friends. Will time run out for the girl by the stream? The author has taken a mystical tale weaved with characters depicted in Indian folklore to spread the message of hope and kindness for anyone that has been a target of cruel behavior. Abigail takes us through the kind of despair where only isolation makes her feel safe. This happens too often in real life. Memorable and heartwarming the authors message is to look beyond someone’s nationality, disabilities , gender creed and see the individual for who they are.

Nestled within a thought-form in Earth’s vast realm, Outpost Gypsy Tree becomes home for six adventurous teenagers from various parts of the world. Charged by their own desire for peace and love for humanity, they are assigned to clear the earth’s light portals of the evils of mankind, starting with the North Portal. To do so, the teens must journey back in time to the winter solstice of 3107 BCE to decode an archaic sequence at Ireland’s historic Newgrange that will unlock a Neolithic chamber leading them to the ‘other world’ of the gods of Erin. To prove their worthiness, courage, and commitment to battle the darkness, they must journey through the traitorous Cave of Damnation and face an encroaching inferno. At the core of this bizarre journey is the staff of Outpost Gypsy Tree: Eittod of Tulsun Minor, an ancient being with a rainbow-colored body, and Bezen and her son, Mingo, inhabitants of Early Earth.
This is a book for all ages.

Outpost Gypsy Tree: The South Portal
With the North Portal in Neolithic Ireland cleared of the evils of mankind, Drew Megan Campbell and the light travels are once again called into service. Charged with clearing the South Portal located in Peru—or as it was once known, Og—they must travel back in time to 10,500 BCE to the final days of the continent of Lemuria, to retrieve a sacred disk from the crumbling Temple of Illumination. Aube and Gar’s great-grandfather from the stars, Commander Auben Gou-Drah, and his crew of the Bintok must rescue the light travelers and the sacred disk from a watery grave. At the core of this bizarre journey is the staff of Outpost Gypsy Tree: Eittod of Tulsun Minor, an ancient being with a rainbow-colored body, and Bezen and her son, Mingo, inhabitants of Early Earth.

Excerpt

PROLOGUE

Zero hour had arrived. The first chink of sunlight streamed through the roof box. It slowly made its way down the passageway and illuminated the ancient triple spiral carving in the stone womb. With her eyes fixed upon the pinnacle of the three-foot high obelisk before her, Drew Megan Campbell slowly rubbed a small white quartz stone between her hands. As Eittod had instructed her, she held the stone just inches above the tip of the obelisk’s pinnacle. She sucked in a deep, nervous breath; her heart pounded hard against her ribs; her face was tense, flushed. After all, this was what she was born to do; it was her task and hers alone, her great-grandfather had said. Drew had to trust, even though she did not yet know the outcome of her next action. Her fellow light travelers’ eyes were transfixed upon her. Their fate rested in her hands. As the triangular notch on the underside of the small quartz touched the capstone, three things happened in rapid succession: brilliant aquamarine lights flashed throughout the stone chamber blinding them; the earth began to tremble; and the heavy, scraping sounds of moving rocks deafened them. It can’t end like this, we’ve come too far , Drew thought, bracing herself as the ground below her feet shifted. Locking eyes with Patrick, they both instantly knew it just couldn’t end like this! The others stared at Drew with concerned eyes as the earth below their feet moved downward. It was as if the ancient chamber was devouring them whole. They reached for each other’s hands and gripped tight. The stone chamber began to descend like a modern-day elevator, but there was no light board indicating the number of floors below or above nor piped-in soothing music. Rather, ear-splitting scraping and groaning sounds of ancient heavy rocks vibrated through their bodies, rattling their bones and clattering their teeth. The aquamarine flashes became more intense, more tangible, surrounding them as if holding them all safely in place. An avalanche of thoughts spilled through their heads but no one made a sound. It was all happening in slow motion, freezing them speechless. Drew could feel their fear, hear their thoughts. Telepathically, she reminded them of her kinship with Patrick, hence this can’t be the end. Drew’s life flashed before her.

“Engaging read. Hard to put down.” — Billy Allmon, U.S. Navy SEAL (Ret)
He’s a relentless homicide detective. She’s an uncompromising journalist.
Neither desires to work together—but they’ll never uncover the truth alone.
Landing a front page headline isn’t why reporter Caitlin Sparks is investigating a string of suspicious deaths connected to the U.S. State Department. She has a personal stake in finding the killer.
Detective Blake Madison has a connection to the murders too, and will risk anything to uncover the truth. But a journalist is the last person he’d rely on to help him solve a crime—especially one whose trail of evidence leads back to him.
Joining forces becomes essential as the body count continues to grow. Someone powerful doesn’t want the truth to come out—and will stop at nothing to make sure no one talks.
On the run with nowhere to turn, the couple devises a plan to expose the killer. The risk is great and the chance of success small, but the ultimate outcome is something neither one of them envisioned.

Excerpt
Blake stroked her hair. “It’s okay, baby. Just a nightmare.”
“It seemed so real.” Caitlin felt his arms tighten around her, felt the power in them, and appreciated the comforting peace they provided. She had never felt so exposed, and yet so safe and secure. She turned her head and strained to see into the darkness again. “It felt like he was really here.”
“Dreams have a way of doing that.” He rocked her for a few more minutes in his soothing embrace, and then whispered in her ear. “Better?”
Caitlin took a few more deep breaths, and then tried to draw away, embarrassed. “Yes. I’m all right.” Again, she peered over her shoulder into the darkness to see if the figure would reappear. “Sorry if I woke you.”
Blake did not release his grasp. “Don’t worry. You didn’t wake me.”
Caitlin knew it was useless to struggle so she rested her head against his chest again and tried to relax. Her mind drifted back to a time when she had been intimidated by this man. Now his mere presence was reassuring. His touch, his voice, brought security and a sense of peace.
“That’s better.” He cleared his throat, but it still sounded hoarse when he talked. “I wish you would put the past behind you.”
Caitlin’s breath caught in her throat. That’s what Vince had just told her. She pulled away and regarded Blake with a troubled look. Had Vince been trying to tell her something from the other side that was merely being echoed by Blake? Was it time to move on with her life? Was she ready for that?
She lay her head down again before answering. “I’m not sure I want to yet.”
Blake’s chest rose against her cheek as he sucked in a deep, slow breath, but he didn’t speak and his grasp was unrelenting. She savored the sensation of being held by him with her head against his heart, keenly aware of the solidness of his arms and the warmth of his skin. His embrace was powerful and tender, strong and gentle.
She allowed herself to bask briefly in the peaceful, shared moment, but then feared she was being selfish. He’s probably uncomfortable and wants to go back to bed. “I’m okay,” she murmured into his chest, trying to reassure him. “You can let me go now, Blake.” She opened her eyes when he finally answered.
“I’m not sure I want to yet.”
