Readers often wonder how closely we writers resemble our characters. In my case, I have to say, “Not a bit!” After all, I write the madcap Tracy Eaton mysteries, Revenge of the Gypsy Queen, Dem Bones' Revenge, Revenge for Old Times' Sake, and the latest, Revenge on Route 66, a humorous romp along the Southwestern Route 66. Tracy is too much the offspring of her reality-challenged, zany parents,... Read more of this blog post »

Dem Bones' Revenge (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: When the cops catch mystery writer Tracy Eaton's mom, Hollywood legend Martha Collins, alone with the bloody remains of celebrity litigant Vince Sperry -- holding nothing but a lame excuse -- Tracy leaps to her mother's defense, despite her own publication woes. Only Martha seems determined to impede Tracy's attempts to clear her. That just convinces Tracy that her mom has pulled a doozy this time, even if Tracy can't see how anything Martha does related to Sperry's murder. Not that other suspects don't abound -- but those scare Tracy even more. Was Martha right? Had Tracy's stuffy lawyer husband, Drew, settled his career-making lawsuit with a bullet? Or did her dad, aging Hollywood heartthrob Alec Grainger, decide to end an old feud once and for all? All roads lead to the past, to one Hollywood scandal after another. Will Tracy's digging clear Martha? Or will she unearth something that's sure to slam the cell door shut on her exasperating, but well-loved, mother?
Revenge of the Gypsy Queen (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Meet Tracy Eaton, the beleaguered daughter of eccentric Hollywood stars. Tracy is no stranger to wacky people, especially within her family. So when her sister-in-law's wedding becomes a three-ring-circus, Tracy takes it in stride, even when the bride is kidnapped. Her snooty, bickering in-laws refuse to call the police and insist on paying the ransom, but Tracy knows that if justice is going to prevail, it will definitely need her help. Because...the groom takes to ridingaround in a gangster's bulletproof limo; sweet, loveable Uncle Philly -- a conman if there ever was one -- has disappeared and there are strange happenings at the engaged couple's upscale restaurant, The Gypsy Princess. It will take all of Tracy's innate noisiness and nerve to get to the shocking truth -- and the Eaton family secret. So much fun it ought to be a crime!
High Crimes on the Magical Plane (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Imagine the surprise of scam psychic Samantha Brennan—when she encounters the real thing—that’s right: an honest-to-heavens Celtic goddess, hidden beneath the steely exterior of FBI Special Agent Annabelle Haggerty. Yet Annabelle’s magical powers might not be enough when America’s sweet and sexy movie star, Molly Claire, is made the centerpiece of a gangland siege that brings the City of Angels to its knees. And if Annabelle and her family of deities are no match for the Demon of Darkness that she believes is masterminding LA’s own Armageddon—-what chance does a poor little fake like Samantha have?
Revenge for Old Times' Sake (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Free-spirited Tracy cheers when her stuffy husband, Drew, loosens up enough to rearrange the nose of his boorish boss, Ian Dragger. But Drew's timing couldn't be worse. When Dragger is found floating face down in the Eatons' pool, deader than disco, Drew is the one that wily Detective Patti Garcia zeroes in on as her prime suspect. Still, Tracy expects to clear her sweetie in short order. But that's before help arrives -- in form of her own mother, over-the-top movie actress Martha Collins, and her rigid-with-dignity mother-in-law, Charlotte Eaton. And when the mothers get together, the fireworks go off. Obstacles mount higher when Drew's ex-flame, attorney CeeCee Payne, deals herself into the game. But CeeCee's peculiar behavior raises too many questions. Does she want Drew back? Or is revenge what CeeCee's after, as her actions threaten to condemn him to a life behind bars. When the bodies in the pool start stacking up like timber in a logging camp, Tracy knows nothing less than her wildest antics will do. But as the blows keep coming Drew's way, Tracy fears that even her craziness won't be enough to save him.
Magical Alienation (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: When fake psychic Samantha Brennan heads to Sedona, Arizona, as the spiritual adviser of the aging bad boy of rock, Rand Riker — she never expects to uncover the most shocking secret the government has kept for the last sixty years: the truth about the being in the spaceship that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. But questions abound in Sedona in the days leading up to an awesome harmonic convergence, which sends Sedona’s mysterious energy off the charts. Such as why Rand defends the most reviled man in the country, militia guru Normal Frankly, accused to trying to kill Arizona’s charismatic senator, Kenny Campbell. Or why Kenny’s real definition of family values doesn’t jibe with what he claims in the photo ops. Even Samantha’s favorite partner in crime, goddess-in-hiding Special Agent Annabelle Haggerty of the FBI wrestles with the most destructive paradox of her life. With gods and goddesses wielding unimaginable powers, and the shape shifting rock people twisting the very surface of the earth, as Sedona heads into the darkest night the planet has ever seen, Samantha wonders which, if any of them, will survive it. But she should know by now that when Celtic gods are involved, nothing is ever as it appears.
