Roadside Assistance (in Three Left Turns to Nowhere)

Cover Art for Three Left Turns to NowhereThree strangers heading to a convention in Toronto are stranded in rural Ontario, where a small town with a subtle kind of magic leads each to discover what he’s been searching for.

Ed Sinclair and his friends get stuck in Hopewell after their car breaks down. It’s snark at first sight when he meets local mechanic Lyn, but while they’re getting under each other’s skin, the town might show them a way into one another’s hearts.

Rome Epstein is out and proud and clueless about love. He’s hosting a giant scavenger hunt at the convention, but ends up in Hopewell. When the town starts leaving him clues for its own scavenger hunt, he discovers a boy who could be the prize he’s been searching for.

Fielding Roy has a gift for seeing the past. His trip to reunite with friends hits an unexpected stop in Hopewell, but a long-lost love letter and two local boys give him a chance to do more than watch the past. This time, Fielding might be able to fix the present.

The Final Decree

Bill Templeton needs a divorce. To get it, he may have to save the galaxy first.

Bill’s impending marriage to Nelson Wolff could unite two of the most powerful industrial families on Terra Beta. The only problem: Bill’s already married. In his rebellious youth, he took up with Travis, a smuggler and all-around scoundrel, and wound up tying the knot. When he walked away from that life, though, he left some loose ends. Like a marriage certificate.

Now, to get his estranged husband to sign off on the divorce decree, he’ll have to travel to a backwater world hundreds of light years away. When he gets there, he encounters a planetary blockade, instigated by one of his family’s unscrupulous business rivals, as part of an interstellar power play over an unprecedented energy source.

Bill will need all the help he can get to make it to the altar in one piece.

Jamie Thomas has enough trouble on his hands trying to get through junior year of high school without being pulverized by Billy Stratton, his bully and tormentor. But that’s before he learns the mother he was always told was dead is actually alive.

And she’s an Amazon.

Sixteen years after she left him on his father’s doorstep, she’s back… and needs Jamie’s help. A curse has caused the ancient tribe of warrior women to give birth to nothing but boys, dooming them to extinction—until prophecy reveals that salvation lies with one of the offspring they abandoned. Putting his life on the line, Jamie must find the courage to confront the wrath of an angry god to save a society that rejected him.

(Bonus: Here’s a cringeworthy video of me reading an excerpt from The Unwanted back in 2014 at Left Bank Books.)

Hey, it's got a hottie on the cover....Add it to your Goodreads bookshelf

Joel Patterson should be happier than ever. He’s back from a two-week vacation in London, where he met Philip, who might be the man of his dreams. Instead, Joel’s heading to Maine for his mother’s funeral. He quits his job to fulfill one last request for his mother: unload his parents’ albatross of an RV by delivering it to a family friend—in California.

Somehow, Joel’s high school “friend” Lincoln has invited himself along on the ride—and into Joel’s bed. And who’s riding shotgun? The ghost of his mother, who still has plenty to say about her son’s judgment (or lack thereof). Joel has to get the RV to San Francisco, get rid of Lincoln, and get back to Philip—and learn what’s keeping Mom tied to this plane. However he manages it, the route’s likely to be anything but straight.
