Well, this is embarrassing. I thought I’d write a post about writing resolutions for a new year by reviewing my resolutions for 2017 and noting how I did.


But I can’t find my list of resolutions.


Anywhere.


So I either 1) put it somewhere I wouldn’t forget, and I’ll find it in another six months or so, or 2) the dog ate it, along with several grocery lists and the instructions for assembling my hus...

Heart and Soul (Archangels Book 2) (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 12, 2016 08:49AM
Description: What happens when prayer is proven to heal? In this second book of the Archangels series, former Marine paramedic Raphael Greene has an extraordinary gift for healing—a gift, he’s found, to be both a blessing and a curse. When a shocking drive-by shooting throws him into the role of guardian angel for cardiologist Ami Kim, he finds they share more than a mutual attraction: Ami is a gifted medical intuitive. Even more astounding to Rafe is his discovery that Ami is conducting clinical trials of a therapy for heart disease that harnesses the power of prayer, a “cure” that her unscrupulous clinic partner has secretly sold to a pharmaceutical giant. As Ami and Rafe reel from the fallout of her partner’s treachery, they uncover something even worse: a horrific plan to transform Ami’s cure into an instrument of worldwide murder. Stalked by enemies on all sides, they find themselves caught in a deadly race that will require them to battle their personal demons before they can save the lives of others. Faced with the reality of pure evil and certain death, Rafe must do two things in order to stop a medical nightmare of gigantic proportions: relinquish control of his healing gift and convince Ami to once again have faith in herself, as well as in a merciful God.
Heaven's Gate (Archangels Book 1) (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 12, 2016 08:42AM
Description: What if unknowing archangels were already walking the earth, preparing us for the Second Coming of Christ? With the unlikely help of Russian medium Khristina Tupikova, Dr. Michael Carilion finds the missing piece of the One Theory—the Holy Grail of theoretical physics. Even as he prepares to announce his stunning scientific discovery, however, a tabloid reporter beats him to the newsstand … with the claim that the physicist has proven the existence of heaven. Besieged by skeptics and fanatics alike, Carilion is caught in a wave of violence and betrayal that throws him into a deadly maelstrom in which faith and science are locked in mortal combat. But when he is subsequently framed for the murders of his wife, his research partner, and a magazine editor, Carilion realizes that more than his theory is under attack. To save himself and his allies, Carilion must ultimately surrender in faith to God in order to defeat the Devil himself who would destroy him, his theory, and a shattering new understanding of the relationship between life and death.
Kiskadee of Death (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2016 12:19PM
Description: Illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and the advent of space tourism creates a deadly backdrop for a murder investigation when birder Bob White finds a famous Winter Texan dead in one of the Rio Grande Valley's World Birding Centers during his January escape from Minnesota's deep-freeze.
Swift Justice (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2016 12:16PM
Description: When Bob White finds a birding colleague dead in a pool of coffee at the annual December meeting of the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union, he finds himself targeted by bad luck and an unknown killer. Adding to his winter blues, Bob's star Hmong student lands in jail for trespassing in an abandoned brewery, and intrigue among rival birding bloggers catches Bob and his friends in a crossfire. In desperation, Bob must go underground (literally!) to solve the puzzle of unseasonal Chimney Swifts, urban redevelopment, a ghost story, and murder in this sixth book of the Bob White Birder Murder Mysteries.
Falcon Finale (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Bob White is hoping to post a state record by sighting an elusive Gyrfalcon in Minnesota's Cottonwood County, but instead, finds himself flying to Flagstaff, Arizona, to help his sister track down her missing husband (aka Bob's best friend Alan Thunderhawk). As soon as he lands in the high mountain country, though, Bob finds more than he bargained for, including a twenty-year-old unsolved murder and a boy who claims to be Alan's son. Sifting his way through deception, land disputes, family secrets, and even an earthquake, Bob must strike a balance between suspicion and trust while he negotiates the tricky landscape of unearthing buried truths. Along the way, his birding expertise affords him close encounters with Arizona birds and possible murderers, but in order to solve the mystery and bring everyone home to Minnesota, Bob must first do something he's never done before not just find a killer, but figure out where the body is, too!
