Contemporary Suspense

A Mountain Women Thriller

On the eve of a country music festival, three people meet in the West Virginia mountains: Angela, a singer with a wounded voice; B.L., a delusional ex-con on a dangerous quest to prove himself; and Rudy, who’s chasing an old dream. If Angela sings—even speaks—she could ruin her voice for good, but she faces another threat: falling hard for Rudy, her first love, the man she abandoned to follow her career. Over the next few days the three will meet again in Winkler, the small town where the Ridgetop festival takes place.Ridgetop - EBook 300x479

All three will be forever changed. All three will run for their lives


Ridgetop extends the Mountain Women series with a suspenseful story that takes place 100 years later. Once again the story is set in Winkler, a fictional West Virginia town. And there’s a connection with the earlier stories, revealed only at the end.

Ridgetop is available for pre-order now (Kindle, $2.99) with a release date of May 29. A print edition may be available by then, also.


Bred to be a biological weapon

Megan Carney’s Sarina Sweetheart is a cleverly plotted and well-written thriller with a brilliant and determined heroine.Sarina.oldcover

Sarina needs to be brilliant, and she must take advantage of the smallest opportunity, because she’s been raised since infancy in laboratory confinement, studied, tutored, and subjected to involuntary surgery. She knows why: she was bred to be a biological weapon. From her restricted environment and meager opportunities she forges secret skills and plans to free herself without setting off a pandemic.

The story is richly detailed yet simply and skillfully written. It’s also a compelling read.

2 New Books by Exceptional Indie Authors

I’m happy share news of two new books by authors I admire for their fine writing and compelling plots.

The Kindle version of John L. Monk’s new book, Thief’s Odyssey, is currently sale priced (for a limited time) at 99 cents. This is the most recent book I’ve read, and it had me wondering, laughing, and hoping for the thief hero and his good intentions! thief_blog

Thief’s Odyssey is Monk’s third novel. He’s earned a lot of fans and great reviews for the other two, Kick and Fool’s Ride, which trace the predicaments of a man endlessly reincarnated in the bodies of bad guys. Monk is currently writing the third novel in that series.

In its short life, Thief’s Odyssey has racked up solid 5-star customer reviews. Try it–you’ll like it! 

The second bit of book news concerns yesterday’s launch of Sarina, Sweetheart, a compelling thriller by new author Megan Carney.Sarina.oldcover

I challenge you to read the Kindle sample and not want more. When you follow the link to Amazon, you may see one of two covers. The white is newer, but both images will lead you to the same ebook.
