Bridgette Connor is a woman on the edge. Her career is in tatters, her relationship is doomed, and after an ill-fated pregnancy she terminates against her better judgement, she does the one thing she's always done best.
Her car careens off the road, leaving her battered, bruised, and beaten. It is then that she meets the woman who will change her life.
Alexis Parker is a woman in control. Her business is thriving, her friends are by her side, and the daughter she refused to abandon is the happiest little girl in the world. When the bloodied and broken Bridgette Connor collapses at her door, Alexis does the one thing she's always done best.
Last Things is a story of two women, the story of how they are different and how they are the same. It is a story of love, a story of hope, a story of loss, and, above all, a story of friendship.
How come nobody ever sees Miranda Ogilvy - except one smoking-hot neighbor and one stone cold killer?
The tiny village called "Minokee" (Seminole for "alligators all over the place") is chock full of mysteries like that, and like:
Who is the hunky neighbor, Shepard Krausse, how in heck did he find the invisible Miranda, and why does such a nice guy have such deadly enemies?
Who killed Miranda's Aunt Phyllis?
Is Shepard's guide dog, Dave, really the smartest guy in town?
Why does old Miz Cleary keep a loaded rifle beside her front porch rocking chair?
The big question for readers of this quirky novel is, "Who (or what) will find Miranda before Shep's homicidal enemies do?"

Strain of Resistance
Bixby Series, Book 1
Michelle Bryan - Marnye Young is Narrator
I was 12-years-old when the world ended. For eight years I've survived in this sh*thole once known as Earth, fighting the alien parasite that mutated most of the population into bloodthirsty freaks while the rest of us became the lunch special on their alien menu.
Now things are changing, and not for the better. The parasite is evolving, becoming smarter, stronger, and deadlier.
They've already stolen everything from me - my home, my family, even the man I loved. It's time for this bullsh*t to end once and for all.
My name is Bixby, and I'm the resistance.

Fiction - Audiobook
Cara Snow is newly divorced, stuck working for a jerky boss at a pet boutique, and dreading her soon-to-be-empty nest with only her beloved corgi for company. Worse still, her ex just got engaged. Doesn't she deserve some romance, too? Or, at least a date for the Fur Ball. She's always enjoyed the annual pet rescue gala, but this year her ex will be there with his fiancée. Meanwhile, Cara hasn't met anyone- other than the irresistible dogs at the boutique's adoption events.
Cara is shocked when her wish to fall for a man as easily as she does for those mutts summons Vincent. His velour track suit, paunchy belly, and tough-guy accent don't exactly fit her childhood image of a fairy godfather. Not exactly on top of his game, he admits to being twenty-five years late. (Her daughter Winnie is convinced he must be there for her!) Vincent does his best and casts a spell "guaranteed" to help Cara find the One. But when she actually starts meeting men, none of them are her type. If only they were as perfect for her as the dogs they adopt. Did her screw-up fairy godfather botch the spell? If so, what will it mean not only for Cara but Vincent as well?
The Fog Seller
A San Francisco Mystery
2018 Gold Medal
Check current price
Fiction - Audiobook
Winner of four major indie publishing gold medals, 2016-17.
From the creator of the Emmy Award-winning Neverwinter Nights, a novel with a unique hero, an unlikely love story, and more twists than San Francisco's Lombard Street.
It's not cozy but it's intimate. It's not procedural but it makes you think, which is why it's been honored both as a mystery and as literary fiction. Its influences range from Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep to the Coen Brothers' The Big Lebowski to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.
"Compelling, mysterious, tender and moving...." - IndieReader, March 2017
"Rating: 9/10. The intricate plot is ingeniously executed so that all pieces of the puzzle fit together.... Twists and turns that at first appear questionable end up working perfectly.... The prose is top notch.... The book's distinctively original structure moves the story along briskly...." - The BookLife Prize, Publishers Weekly, September 2017
Assassinated: The crusading politician who saved hundreds of San Francisco homes from the bulldozers of a big developer.
Accused: A mysterious young loner who speaks his own unique dialect of English and refuses to answer questions.
Unexpected: A woman who will risk her promising future for a man without a past.
When teacher turned deckhand Steve Ondelle is framed for the killing of a San Francisco supervisor, he tumbles into a world of billion-dollar deals and bizarre sexual adventures, a world where hard evidence depicts him as a misfit who turns to murder.
To expose these freshly-minted lies, Steve must first make peace with a lifetime of painful truths. He travels from the piers of Sausalito to the penthouses of San Francisco, with unlikely allies like Leonard the Human Statue, Eli of the Coral Reef, The Prophet of Market Street.
And Liam the Fog Seller.

Once the old, cantankerous Sam Clevenger and his wife, Charlotte, hired Frank Willson and John Johnson to help with the move, their fate took a dark turn. These true events were documented by journalists through the 1887 trial and well into the 1900s, and stories have been told of Sam's unfound treasure for nearly 130 years.

Nomad, Book 1
He wasn't expected to survive, and for 20 years, he has managed to stay off their radar. Until now. Until her.
Gryffin was the sole survivor of The Foundation's experimental project to transform human children into hybrid cyborgs - half human, half machine. The program failed and he was sent on a one way trip into The Outer Sector where he was left for dead. He has survived for 20 years by suppressing his human emotions and embracing his machine side.
Officer Terra Rush believes in her duty to the Foundation. The Sector needs to be prepared for colonization, and nothing can stop her from doing her job... except him. When Gryffin saves her from an attack, Terra uncovers a terrible secret. The Foundation has been lying to her... and maybe they still are.
They have labelled Gryffin a killing machine, yet he acts more human than many of The Foundation's leaders. He has awakened intense feelings in Terra that throw her loyalties into question, and even though he pushes her away, she is determined to find out the truth about the cyborg program.
Gryffin refuses to be a mindless soldier, yet escaping The Foundation's control and stopping the colonization of his home will require Terra's help. Can Gryffin overcome the machine inside and trust her? Or will getting in touch with his human emotions destroy him once and for all?
