              Rian, accompanied by his wolf-friend Saz, is on a mission. To fulfill their task, the two of them must infiltrate the most magical, the most dangerous, the most fearful fort in existence, home of the maddest and baddest magician around.

               

              Will an invisibility spell be sufficient to protect them from sentient statues, giant bees and the aforementioned wizard? Probably not. But hey, it’s all in a day’s work, right? Death before dishonor! Though dishonor is looking pretty darned attractive right about now.

                      Hot Tea  Cara O'Flynn finds herself in an unusual position.  She's quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career.  Plus her roommate has run off and left her with an empty room to fill.  If she can just accomplish those two tasks before her mother finds out she has no income and no one to help pay the bills, she's in good shape.     The problem - Cara didn’t plan for three careers in as many days, nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap.  And then there's her sister Teagan, while always helpful and funny, she can be a bit annoying at times.  When you’re Irish, all things (good and bad) come in threes.  It’s inevitable.  Cara should have remembered not to forget that part.    Cara and Teagan bring laughter, intelligence, and family tradition to every experience they encounter.

                       

                      Sweet Tea  - Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes come true. The good news is that each of them has found the man of her dreams, unfortunately this is not news easily broken to their traditional mother.  Further complicating their lives, they find themselves in the middle of a serial murder investigation; worse still, Cara may have come to the attention of the murderer.   With their lives spinning slightly out of control, some of it good, some of it not, Cara and Teagan depend on each other, humor, their family, and their not so common sense, to keep them going.

                       

                       

                      Green Tea   finds Cara and Teagan more determined than ever, but determination without focus doesn't get you very far.    There's a wedding just days away.  A time to celebrate and enjoy family and tradition, but Cara keeps her distance as situations outside of her control threaten her in ways she is just beginning to recognize.  Cara and Teagan finally get to the bottom of one mystery, only to find another much closer to home.

                        Where the Dead Fear to Tread  by M.R. Gott

                         

                        A police officer and a serial killer search separately for a missing child while running a malevolent labyrinth populated by creatures they never knew existed.

                         

                        Former prosecutor William Chandler, disgusted with his past inaction, spills the blood of those who victimize children to correct the ills he sees in the world. A self-admitted serial killer and uncomfortable with his actions, Chandler attends the funerals of those whose lives he has taken in an effort to retain a true understanding of the nature of violence.

                         

                        The carnage left in his wake is investigated by Detective Kate Broadband, who becomes progressively more comfortable with the corpses left by Chandler. Envying the power she sees in him, she pursues Chandler as each search for Maria Verde, a missing eight-year-old girl.

                         

                        As Chandler and Broadband draw closer to discovering what happened to Maria they are forced to confront The Devourer, an unnatural being trafficking in stolen children.

                         

                        Where the Dead Fear to Tread is a tale of hard-boiled macabre, bridging numerous genres to reveal a story of horror, crime and revenge.

                              David Sutton struggled to understand what had changed once he and Emily moved into the old suburban house, which was remodeled after being abandoned for a several years. She had been an outgoing and happy person when she and David married. Emily was only a shadow of her former self. She had become withdrawn and heard voices in the house that she felt were trying to harm her. He was worried about her, but felt helpless to prevent the decline. A coworker of David's befriended him to help him cope. Eventually witnessing some strange occurrences in the house himself, he realized that Emily’s problems may not have just been in her mind.

                               

                              Alone Again is about 43,000 words and contains some mature content.

                                In war-torn England, in September 1941, thirteen-year-old Harry Lockwood steps off the train and embarks on his new life at Markham College, a boys’ boarding school near London. With his father stationed in North Africa and his mother working in a munitions factory a hundred miles away, he is on his own.

                                Soon, Harry finds himself fighting for survival in a new world where the misuse of power by sadistic prefects creates a closed society ruled by fear and violence. As if this is not enough, Hitler’s bombardment of Britain with terrifying V1 flying bombs and V2 ballistic missiles threatens to destroy him.

                                Harry’s tale is one of lost innocence, of war, of loyalty and of love.

Working with his master he begins to heel various infirmities until the AMA learns about him and goes after him for actually healing patients. What was this dog? Why did he have such healing powers? Was he a dyslexic's version of God? Or was Jesus too busy walking around another Holy Land on some other planet and the best Earth could get was Christ's dog? Doxology attempts to answer such theological questions with a dachshund that makes Lassie look like a slow learner.

                                    Hot Tea  The characters in Hot Tea are people you'd like to know and part of a family that welcomes you with open arms.  Almost 70,000 copies have been sold.  You will find that the 'Tea' series is a fast fun read.


                                    Cara O'Flynn finds herself in an unusual position.  She's quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career.  Plus, her roommate has run off and left her with an empty room to fill.  If she can just accomplish those two tasks before her mother finds out she has no income and no one to help pay bills, she's in good shape.    

                                    The problem - Cara didn't plan for three careers in as many days, nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap.  And then there's her sister Teagan, while always helpful and funny, she can be a bit annoying at times.  
                                     
                                    When you're Irish, all things (good and bad) come in threes.  It's inevitable.  Cara should have remembered not to forget that part.
                                     
                                    Cara and Teagan bring laughter, intelligence and family tradition to every experience they encounter.

                                    Hot Tea is the first book in the Tea series.  The Tea series is a hybrid of the traditional novel and the serial novel.  Hot Tea is a full-length novel (approximately 64,500 words) and leads directly into Sweet Tea.
                                    .
                                    Sweet Tea  the second book in The Tea Series begins right where Hot Tea left off.

                                    Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes come true. The good news is that each of them has found the man of her dreams, unfortunately this is not news easily broken to their traditional mother.Further complicating their lives, they find themselves in the middle of a serial murder investigation; worse still, Cara may have come to the attention of the murderer. 

                                    With their lives spinning slightly out of control, some of it good, some of it not, Cara and Teagan depend on each other, humor, their family, and their not so common sense, to keep them going. 

                                    Iced Tea   the third book in The Tea Series begins right where Sweet Tea left off.

                                    Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes gone awry. The serial murderer, if there is one, is still out there. The new guys are supportive, as is the family, but there is a limit to how involved Cara and Teagan want the people they love most to be.  Knowing there is a serial murderer in your sphere of influence is disorienting.  What you do has consequences, but that doesn't mean you see them in advance.

                                    The crazy cop is around more than ever.  There is a wedding to be planned and although Cara has always been the organizer of the family, she's not even kept in the loop.

                                    Life has been spinning out of control for some time and now it's up to Cara and Teagan to put it to rights.

                                    Green Tea  the fourth book in the Tea Series picks up right where Iced Tea left off 

                                    Cara and Teagan are more determined than ever, but determination without focus doesn't get you very far. 

                                    There's a wedding just days away. A time to celebrate and enjoy family and tradition, but Cara keeps her distance as situations outside of her control threaten her in ways she is just beginning to recognize.  Things are changing quickly and Cara needs to come to terms with the fact that one of the people she loves most may not be around much longer.

                                    Cara and Teagan finally get to the bottom of one mystery, only to find another much closer to home.
                                     
                                    Peppermint Tea  is the fifth book in the Tea Series, following Green Tea.

                                    With complications swirling around Cara and Teagan, a cruise to Alaska might be just the opportunity they were looking for to calm things down and reconnect. 

                                    They didn't count on things changing so much while they were gone. One bad guy out of jail, another unaccounted for and just what did their mother do with their boyfriends?

                                    Cara has always counted on Teagan to walk with her through the good and bad parts of life, but even that seems to be changing...
