New Audiobook! When You Have To Go There

A Crime Novel

Even with her career heading nowhere, Detective Helen Lipscomb wouldn’t give up. Although everyone, from the chief of police on down, wanted her off the force, she forced herself to stick it out, not giving the bastards the satisfaction of seeing her crumble. She’d had one near career-ending fiasco in her life, and couldn’t imagine that another would come her way. Until a new serial killer arrived in town, less than a year after Helen had almost missed nabbing the last one. And this murderer wasn’t targeting random people, helpless females, or any of the meek and innocent. He was targeting the police themselves. And as Helen sees her colleagues falling one by one, she knows it’s only a matter of time until the killer’s attention turns to her. 

The Group: Audiobook!

A Crime Novel

Professor Ronald Green never saw any of it coming. He never expected to meet Diane Brewster, begin an affair with her, or nearly destroy his marriage and family. More than anything, though, he never imagined Diane’s death, or that he would become the main suspect in her murder. Then, just when Green felt his life had become as twisted and insane as possible, he discovered that Fate had at least one more turn in store for him. For Diane’s death had only been one of many, and the killer had several more people in his sights, including, quite possibly, Ron Green himself.

Squatter’s Rights 

Lowlife Nicky LeBow made a habit of hiding out in strangers’ homes. No one noticed him until the day he entered the wrong house and found himself targeted by both cops and crooks.

Sam Quinton, private investigator and former professional wrestler, didn’t care much about Nicky either, until the squatter ended up dead, and an elderly couple quietly living out their golden years became the killers’ next targets.

Squatter’s Rights is the first book in the Sam Quinton Mystery series.

Sam is a lovable tough guy and makes a great protagonist.


A good read that surfs the ever-changing waves of good and evil.

Sandy Penny

A great start to a new series! This fast paced detective novel was certainly a page turner.
