Sergeant Petra Minx of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is ecstatic when her quirky boss, A.K., orders her to Nassau to meet the legendary Betty Graceby, a retired Canadian singer and ex-Vegas dancer. The complaints Betty has been filing against her obnoxious grandson Ken have finally caught the attention of the authorities. But why the sudden interest?

Martin, a journalist with a great nose for a story, has heard rumours of a new arts centre to be financed by an anonymous benefactor … and Betty’s fortune has tripled since the death of her husband, Joe LePinto, who was killed in a car driven by her smooth-talking son Cliff. So is money the key, and how far will the Graceby ‘boys’ go to secure their future?

As the action moves from the Bahamas to Las Vegas and on to the Great Lakes of North America, Petra develops a deep affection for Betty and her fact-finding mission becomes much more personal. She uncovers a viper’s nest of hatred, greed, treachery and lust and realizes that LePinto’s influence is as pervasive in death as it was in life.

The dead man’s legacy is a weighty one…

In an age ruled by iron men, in a world of new discovery and Spanish gold, a young Irishwoman named Mary rises from the ashes of her broken childhood with ships and men-at-arms under her command. She and her loyal crew prowl the Caribbean and prosper in the New World for a time until the ugly past Mary has fled from in the old one finds her.

Across the great ocean to the east, war is coming. The King of Spain is assembling the most powerful armada the world has ever seen – an enormous beast – to invade England and depose the Protestant “heretic queen.” To have any chance against the wealth and might of Spain, England will need every warship, she will need every able captain. To this purpose, Queen Elizabeth spares Mary from the headman’s axe for past sins in exchange for her loyalty, her ships and men.

Based on true historical events, this is a tale about war, adventure, love and betrayal. This is a story about vengeance, this is a tale of heartbreak…

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

After a distinguished career as a professional beach volleyball player, Rachel Haslett’s father hands her the reigns to the Santa Barbara Charros, a class A minor league baseball team. She shakes the very foundation of the sport by hiring an all female staff and creating a highly successful marketing campaign called honeyball. To baseball purists it represents marketing sex over baseball. It’s a concept that results in the Charros’ becoming the all time minor league leader in attendance for a single season.

Rachel’s path to that record is cluttered with obstacles; she’s jailed for a parole violation, sexually assaulted by her parole officer, repeatedly chastised in print by a local sportswriter and haunted by the death of her father in a plane crash which she learns was not an accident.

Honeyball offers an intriguing and entertaining perspective of minor league baseball where a group of women pull together in a dedicated campaign to find success at the box office while their leader finally finds the love of her life and the persons responsible for the death of her father in a plane crash. This all happens before her team records its last out of its season.

Nina Monte has to authenticate an artefact hidden on a galley that sank in the fifteenth century. Soon she discovers that at stake is freedom for all humankind.

Nina Monte, a well-respected professor at the University of Padua, answers an unexpected summons to a secret meeting with three European officials. They want to hire her to verify the authenticity of an ancient artefact hidden on a forgotten galley that sank in the fifteenth century, and to this day lies buried at the bottom of Lake Garda in Italy.

She accepts the invitation to join an eccentric art collector and to examine the artefact. But before long, the Italian professor is cornered in an insidious intrigue. Her inner and outer worlds clash.

Joined by a lake-town hotelier, Alessandro Pini, Monte begins to unravel the truth surrounding the discovery. She knows the stakes are high.

Forced to abandon their ordinary lives, and dragged into a deadly race to outwit a smart, but wicked, villain, Nina and Alessandro must do everything they can to ensure freedom for all humankind.

Recent Praise for Fast Track To Glory:

Exotic sights, sounds and smells are described in sufficient detail such that they’re almost tangible, transporting readers to a special place where each new page heightens both the expectation and the odyssey … Fast Track to Glory is a fast track to the afterglow that is sure to come from such a great read!” – Marta Tandori for Readers’ Favorite

“… Fast Track To Glory is a gripping tale bound to give an amazing thrill … it’s an adventure that readers will remember for a very long time.” – Faridah Nassozi for Readers’ Favorite
