What a wild ride FINAL STRAW has been. It’s actually two books in one. Thought I was done and dusted months ago when inspiration struck- combine the two. Glad I did. It’s come up great and Amber’s story is so much more powerful now.
I’ve been building up to Amber’s Story ever since Billy met her that fateful night in the rat-infested alley. Been hinting about her past the whole time with snipp... Read more of this blog post »

Book 8 in the Urban Hunters series (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 14, 2013 04:30AM
Description: Wish I could give you a description, even a hint but this next one is a big surprise in the series so mum's the word :) I guess what I can tell you is it has a brand new cover which some say is the best yet. "Moody." "Scary." Mid November is my deadline to get it to the editors. If I can do that, I reckon I'll have it out for Christmas which means four books for the year. Yee hah!
