Knowing nothing more about her father than that he wasn’t the man she called Dad all her life, Diana wouldn’t have gone to claim her inheritance if her mother hadn’t insisted. To shut her up, she intended to do nothing more than to tell the lawyer to shove it. Step-siblings she never knew she had met her at the airport and misunderstood her suppressed demeanor as grief.
Telling her how happy they were that she was there, how they wanted her to stay and share their wealth, they tried to fool and manipulate her. The mansion wasn’t theirs left to them by their mother. The business that supported them wasn’t theirs. They were hers, left to her by her father. Furious over their deception, Diana planned her revenge with the help of new ally Steven. But could he be trusted?
When Steven’s lies come to the surface, Diana must decide if she should continue her plan for revenge on her own, or run for her life.

Stutter Creek (book one) is a Ann Swann, brilliantly hidden within a suspense-filled tale of a psychotic serial killer with a chip on his shoulder. It is also a classic tale of young love lost, and a life of regrettable what-ifs.
One hundred thirty-nine years ago, Maggie Morton found herself at the opposing end of a campaign to have her humiliated, ostracized and eventually hanged for practicing witchcraft. She was buried in a shallow grave in the back of the local cemetery. Maggie’s lonely spirit walks restless in the cemetery as she continues to search for someone to believe her story and expose the truth behind her death.
Angela Horne is coming back to Ezrah’s Plateau for the first time in over a decade. The town is throwing a weekend long celebration for her great grandfather Caleb, who rid the town of evil back in 1870 and offered it a direction of hope and righteousness. During her stay, she discovers a dust covered diary, over a century old, in the attic of her grandmothers house. As Angela reads, she learns that Maggie was not a witch. She was a scapegoat. Whats worse, someone else knows she has that diary and wants it, and her, put away for good.

The last time her, she was marked with blood.
Now she’s returned, along with my temptation.
Our touch is blasphemous,
They say she’s tainted, but they will not speak against me.
His holy blood is in my veins and my word is truth.
I’m the fucking Prophet.
For twelve years, I fought for my soul in this evil world.
Until my God sent him.
My oldest friend. The only boy I ever loved.
What we’re doing risks everything, yet we can’t stop.
When I sin with him, it’s the purest I’ve ever felt.

For we are the Anointed.

SILENT ALL THESE YEARS: A Novel is a Standalone Fiction Mystery Suspense Novel.
Monday morning arrives with its habitual plans for obligatory adulting, snickering with sadism as all the humans bow to its alarm. Wake up and perform. Wake up and face me. Wake up and be someone.
After a tear-filled drive home to Austin Saturday night, my body and mind crashed—hard.
I spent all of Sunday under my sheets trying to sort out the events of my life-changing weekend.
It was painful, and the worst part?
The inheritance is strange, both alarming and frightening, but that part I believe I can handle. I’ll just decline the money and lock it back in the past.
But not Jake. No, he messed with my head and with my heart.
How was he able to insult me, seduce me, and make me feel alive again all in one night?
And he says he remembers me.
He remembers my past…a past I’ve forgotten.
Does he have clues? Clues that I need?
As I blow-dry my hair for work, the Xanax calming my nerves, I’m haunted by my aunt’s warning to stay away from the Andrews family.
All Marilyn did was work for them. She didn’t date any of them. No one seduced her or took advantage of her. There was no screwing Jake Andrews like I did.
I grab the picture of the two of us on my bathroom vanity and squeeze it to my chest.
Grief grabs hold of me, punching me in the stomach, and I want to throw up.
What have I done?
I forgot him. Friday night, I was so lost in Jake that I forgot my soul mate. I’ve betrayed him, betrayed our perfect love.
Familiar wetness drips down my cheeks. I’m torn in half. As much as I want to forget that horribly sexy asshole of a man, his touch is etched everywhere on my body. He’s surrounding me, pinning me against the wall, holding me against his body, freeing me but suffocating me at the same time.
I throw down Nathan’s picture and give up on my hair. “Forget it!”
