The 1st Book of Lucinda - My Bonny Lies Over The Ocean

Print Copy $12.99   Digital Copy $3.99

Forced to surrender her female persona for most of her life, Mary Read suppresses every feminine wile in order to fit in. A woman aboard a pirate ship is a harbinger for disaster but still she is able to carve out a reputation as a ruthless but very capable pirate. When The Revenge plunders a merchant ship, she insists they offer quarters to one of the crew – an artist with questionable sea legs. How can she acquiesce to her desire to be with Will Cooper, while still allowing no one to know she is a woman? Will she be able to escape certain execution and to have a quiet life with one man?

Now, on her Judgment Day, she must explain her time in the West Indies. Sitting at the hand of God, she must recount her years aboard The Revenge – the plundering, the plotting and the killing. Surrounded by more colorful characters than she would want to admit to any Deity, she must find perspective in those years, and understanding of why her life had taken her in that direction. In the most unlikely circumstances, Mary, Will, Calico Jack and Anne Bonny learn that justice and trust take on many faces, and that along with love – physical sexuality and emotional love – they are to be embraced.

Print Copy $12.99   Digital Copy $4.99

Who better to teach one of love than Yeshu’a of Nazareth? Mariamne knew she was blessed to have Yeshu’a in her life. With the Sea of Galilee far behind them, they travel to Cornwall with Yeshu’a’s uncle, Yusef of Arimathea, cementing their relationship along the way. While Uncle Yusef inspects his tin mines, Yeshu’a and Mariamne go to Stonehenge, where, for the next 14 years, they learn the many things they need to help heal the bodies and souls of the oppressed people of Judea. When they return, they spend the next three years doing just that, becoming political and religious threats in their home land. To Christians, Yeshu’a would become the Savior. To Mariamne, he was a husband, a lover, and the father of her children, and she would do anything to save him.
     The Gospel of Mariamne chronicles the life of Mary of Magdala and her marriage to Jesus.

Print Copy $14.99     Digital Copy $3.99

ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Finalist 2014, NIEA Indie Excellence Award 2014 Finalist -- Military Fiction

Yellow footprints painted on San Diego concrete mark the starting point for Trip Anderson's journey. They lead him, bloodied and scarred, through the hills of the Peloponnese and the poppy fields of China, on to the Pusan Perimeter. Was it all in preparation for Korea -- the 'forgotten war' that could never be forgotten by those men who were there -- and beyond? In charge of men who were hastily prepared for combat, leading them through the landing at Inchon and a deadly winter at Chosin, Trip needs all his acquired skills and knowledge to get his men, as many of them as possible, through three years of hell then back home again. The big question is what waits at home for him when the fighting is done, as political, military and personal realities set in. His post-Korean life holds a commission, but also heart break, national upheaval, and yet another war -- Vietnam -- where his sacrifices for his country reach new heights. His journey is that of a US Marine, on the road that is unfathomable to most civilians; he takes the road less travelled.
