Please post reviews of my books. Reviews help readers find good books. Thanks for your support!

While waiting for the publisher’s editing of the 4th book in my Blood Justice series of contemporary vampire thrillers, Blood on the Mountain, I’m working on Windhaven.

Windhaven, is a survival at sea novel. — A 70 foot yacht racing around the world is hit by a rogue wave in the Southern Ocean. With no engine or communications, the remaining crew must survive thousands of miles of inhospitable ocean.


For another sailing inspired novel try Girl at Sea.

My novel Ancient Mariners has been reissued with a new title, Girl at Sea, and a new cover. Same book inside so reviews of AM apply to Girl at Sea.

Girl at Sea review:     5.0 out of 5 stars      Excellent      By  Liliyana on June 13, 2018
“Death is a silent companion on this quest for freedom and revenge. It’s there at every turn guiding Beth to vengeance for the injustice that no one has ever righted. Now, out on the sea where she is most at home with her friend and mentor Silas, Beth will follow death’s lead until she claims her due.”
