How did I get here? From being a kid on a skateboard, doing it for the love of the sport, to being a man with paying sponsors, to the Dew Tour, to becoming a motivational speaker and author. My life a whirlwind of plane rides, hotels, contests, my love life, good times, bad times, lots of money, no money. How were these things cultivated from nothing more than luck, a wooden board, and four spinning wheels? That question would unveil itself slowly as I looked inward to examine my life to this point: from the tragic loss of my mother—which was an unbelievable low—to this proud moment of being in the spotlight. From my experiences as a child actor that morphed to my time in a band and ultimately led to my discovery of skateboarding; all these elements that seemed unrelated, but blended together and became the critical experiences that made up my life, my career, my nucleus.

Cheerily unflappable low-achiever Duggie Moon gets by on his charm and his willingness to work for minimum wage as long as he’s free to live as a slacker entrepreneur in the idyllic mountains of Rapidan County, Virginia. Duggie has a soft heart, and some of his best friends would tell you he’s got a soft head too. But he’s always willing to put his own interests aside for the good of the team.
In the town of Dudleigh, the highpoint of the social calendar is the annual Fourth of July softball tournament, but dark forces are gathering for this year’s normally easy-going event. When his ace-pitcher and longstanding unrequited love Jenny Carson is forced to play for the competition, and a team of thuggish ringers raise the stakes, Duggie has his hands full trying to keep tempers from flying higher than the homers. And he’s having trouble focusing because he’s a little paranoid about the booming crop of pot he’s secretly growing in an old school bus behind his house.
All will be well if he can just get it harvested before the Sheriff’s men get wind of it. In an ordinary steamy July in Virginia, even the coolest characters find it hard to avoid getting baked. For Duggie Moon, this summer looks to be a scorcher. [close]Giveaway dates: Mar 18 - Apr 18, 201420 copies available, 564 people requestingCountries available: US

NORTHERN ENGLAND, 1204.
GEORGE ASCALON, earl of Grasmere, returns home from the disastrous Fourth Crusade and the Sack of Constantinople an angry, broken and humbled man. His dream of living quietly ever after is interrupted when charged with one last quest, and it is nothing like what he experienced in the East and twice as frightening.
Reluctantly, George takes up the sword of Ascalon one last time.
“THIS STORY is a re-working of ‘Saint George and the Dragon,’ with echoes of Beowulf and Lord of the Rings. The feel is lushly medieval, like a colorful tapestry come to life. A riveting battle between Christian elements and pagan evil is almost three-dimensional in nature.” - Historical Novels Review

48-year-old Nantucketer Dabney Kimball Beech has always had a gift for matchmaking. Some call her ability mystical, while others - like her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech, and her daughter, Agnes, who is clearly engaged to the wrong man - call it meddlesome, but there's no arguing with her results: With 42 happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.
Never, that is, except in the case of herself and Clendenin Hughes, the green-eyed boy who took her heart with him long ago when he left the island to pursue his dream of becoming a journalist. Now, after spending 27 years on the other side of the world, Clen is back on Nantucket, and Dabney has never felt so confused, or so alive.
But when tragedy threatens her own second chance, Dabney must face the choices she's made and share painful secrets with her family. Determined to make use of her gift before it's too late, she sets out to find perfect matches for those she loves most. The Matchmaker is a heartbreaking story about losing and finding love, even as you're running out of time.

Set against a fleeting age when music seemed about to change the world, the story of the band known as The Innocents captures the true drama of the late 1960s—not the glitter of famous names, but the yearning of the heartland guitarists and drummers who believed…and the lovers, friends, and lives crushed along the way.

A childhood mistake. A lifetime of regrets.
Jenni is a ‘ghost’: she writes the lives of other people. It’s a job that suits her well: still haunted by a childhood tragedy, she finds it easier to take refuge in the memories of others rather than dwell on her own.
Jenni has an exciting new commission, and is delighted to start working on the memoirs of a Dutchwoman, Klara. As a child in the Second World War, Klara was interned in a camp on Java during the Japanese occupation – she has an extraordinary story of survival to tell.
But as Jenni and Klara begin to get to know each other, Jenni begins to do much more than shed light on a neglected part of history. She is being forced to examine her own devastating memories, too. But with Klara’s help, perhaps this is finally the moment where she will be able to lay the ghosts of her own past to rest?
Gripping, poignant and beautifully researched, Ghostwritten is a story of survival and love, of memory and hope. [close]Giveaway dates: Mar 27 - Apr 18, 201410 copies available, 452 people requestingCountries available: GB

In order to build interest in the third book in my series, I'm running a giveaway for the first two print books in the series (a $21.96 USD value).
The "Great Death" series (by Vincent Berg) is an Apocalyptic/Post-Apocalyptic story which takes a different look at the familiar genre.
Love and Family During the Great Death deals with what happens during an Apocalyptic event, and how one group of virtual strangers struggle as death surrounds and encroaches on them.
Grappling with Survival follows up on the series, by examining how the effects of watching your friends and family die before your eyes changes how a Post-Apocalyptic story unfolds. Would everyone really fight over the abundant spoils, or would anyone even be willing to work together.
Love and Family During the Great Death[close]
A man and his daughter drive into a massive meteor shower that disrupts their lives, but it’s only the beginning. It’s the beginning of the end, or is it? An Apocalyptic tale that focuses on individuals trying to maintain love, hope and family amongst death and dying.
Grappling with Survival
A Post-Apocalyptic world unlike any other. Instead of banding together or fighting each other, here the survivors find a world with few resources, little trust and no desire to intermingle. Fears of disease prevent survivors from reaching out for help. How does society survive if the survivors won’t participate?
Note: This series deals with serious subjects such as sickness, death, and yes, even some sex. As such, it's a fairly serious read. However, it's lightened by some tremendous character development and interplay, which will keep you involved, cheering on until the very end.Giveaway dates: Mar 27 - Apr 18, 20146 copies available, 573 people requestingCountries available: US, CA, and GB

One journalist’s memoir of her personal friendship with Harper Lee and her sister, drawing on the extraordinary access they gave her to share the story of their lives.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of the best loved novels of the twentieth century. But for the last fifty years, the novel’s celebrated author, Harper Lee, has said almost nothing on the record. Journalists have trekked to her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, where Harper Lee, known by her friends as Nelle, has lived with her sister, Alice, for decades, trying and failing to get an interview with the author. But in 2001, the Lee sisters opened their door for Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. It was the beginning of a long conversation—and a friendship that has continued ever since.
In 2004, with the Lees’ encouragement, Mills moved into the house next door to the sisters. She spent the next eighteen months there, talking and sharing stories over meals and daily drives in the countryside. Along with members of the Lees’ tight inner circle, the sisters and Mills would go fishing, feed the ducks, go to the Laundromat, watch the Crimson Tide, drink coffee at McDonald’s, and explore all over lower Alabama.
Nelle shared her love of history, literature, and the quirky Southern way of life with Mills, as well as her keen sense of how journalism should be practiced. As the sisters decided to let Mills tell their story, Nelle helped make sure she was getting the story—and the South—right. Alice, the keeper of the Lee family history, shared the stories of their family.
The Mockingbird Next Door is the story of Mills’s friendship with the Lee sisters. It is a testament to the great intelligence, sharp wit, and tremendous storytelling power of these two women, especially that of Nelle.
Mills was given a rare opportunity to know Nelle Harper Lee, to be part of the Lees’ life in Alabama, and to hear them reflect on their upbringing, their corner of the Deep South, how To Kill a Mockingbird affected their lives, and why Nelle Harper Lee chose to never write another novel.

From the author of The Middle Place comes a new memoir that examines the bond—sometimes nourishing, sometimes exasperating, occasionally divine—between mothers and daughters.
When Kelly Corrigan was in high school, her mother neatly summarized the family dynamic as “Your father’s the glitter but I’m the glue.” This meant nothing to Kelly, who left childhood sure that her mom—with her inviolable commandments and proud stoicism—would be nothing more than background chatter for the rest of Kelly’s life, which she was carefully orienting toward adventure. After college, armed with a backpack, her personal mission statement, and a wad of traveler’s checks, she took off for Australia to see things and do things and Become Interesting.
But it didn’t turn out the way she pictured it. In a matter of months, her savings shot, she had a choice: get a job or go home. That’s how Kelly met John Tanner, a newly widowed father of two looking for a live-in nanny. They chatted for an hour, discussed timing and pay, and a week later, Kelly moved in. And there, in that house in a suburb north of Sydney, 10,000 miles from the house where she was raised, her mother’s voice was suddenly everywhere, nudging and advising, cautioning and directing, escorting her through a terrain as foreign as any she had ever trekked. Every day she spent with the Tanner kids was a day spent reconsidering her relationship with her mother, turning it over in her hands like a shell, straining to hear whatever messages might be trapped in its spiral.
This is a book about the difference between travel and life experience, stepping out and stepping up, fathers and mothers. But mostly it’s about who you admire and why, and how that changes over time. [close]Giveaway dates: Apr 01 - Apr 18, 201410 copies available, 1313 people requestingCountries available: US

But Amber has slipped away from all of them, and where she has gone is as big a mystery as why she was taken. While they are searching for their sister, Porillon strikes a staggering blow to the entire land.
The Well of Wyrding, a mythic well which contains the magic and fate of every creature in the Great Realms, has been poisoned creating havoc as the magic power of wyrd becomes toxic.
While Grace, Rosalee, and Dalah seek a way to purify the Well of Wyrding, wyrd is going haywire, buildings fashioned with wyrd are turning to pinnacles of terror; wyrd is working against its casters; and people are taking up arms against the threat sorcerers and their kind pose.
But the toxic wyrd is causing a new problem to arise. They are called caustics: those wyrders who have been completely taken over by their chaotic wyrd. Husks of what they once were, they are now a vessel for Chaos in the realms.

Hal was convicted of statutory rape. Two lives, ruined. Despite a brutal existence in prison, a desperate escape and a chance for a new life in Africa, Hal never forgets his first love. If only there were some way he could return home, return to Trent. Never, warns his wise friend Demetrio, reminding Hal that they are escaped felons, and to be caught is to go back to prison. Trent can't forget Hal, nor can she forgive herself for his fate. The future holds no promise, and finally she seeks solace and expiation in a cult calling itself The Church of Hallowed Revelation. Her parents seek to have her deprogrammed, but instead lose her to ruthless kidnappers, who hold her in their African headquarters until her ransom is paid. Seeking a hostage held by a quasi-military faction, Hal and Demetrio head into the wilderness. At the end of their quest is violence, death, and--just perhaps--another chance for Hal and Trent.
