Busy Editing..

Hi,
You have not heard from me for a while because I am doing a re-do of a book I published a while ago, Stories With Faces.

They knew the trip would be difficult, but they didn't bargain on hell. For five months, and two thousand miles, the wagon train lumbers toward California on the Oregon Trail and into big trouble. The 1845 wagon train is a monument to Americana that fascinates readers 175 years later.

“Legendary crime writer Joseph Wambaugh:
“Death On A Dark Street" is a suspenseful, authentic, and well-researched manhunt for a serial killer. It introduces rookie homicide detective Jaye Peoria, a tough but tender young woman obsessed with proving herself and snaring an elusive killer. It's a good book.”

Fred Dickey Death On A Dark Street 5 Star Review on Amazon:

"Warning! Don’t start this book if you have a busy schedule. You will not want to put it down! Very well written with an excellent idea of what it’s like to be searching for a killer in the life of a detective. Loved the San Diego references. Characters are well drawn out and hopefully they will be seen again in a sequel."
