I’ve been remiss in updating my website, but I wanted to catch you up to speed. I’ve started re-releasing my “The Lonely Heroes” series. The first book, “Ranger Hank, The Lonely Heroes – Book 1,” (mybook.to/Ranger_Hank) was rereleased on March 2. Here’s the blurb:
One of my toughest decisions was to join the Army after graduating high school. My second toughest was to decide it was time to get out. I wanted more than that life had to offer—namely the return of my humanity and a life beyond the pain that had leached into my soul during my deployments. Without a hint at what to do next, I said goodbye to my Army life and headed home to Missouri.
There were things I’d been hiding from my family for too many years—a secret that had nothing to do with my career as an Army Ranger. It was time I began to live my truth, but how to start, I didn’t know. I was aware of one thing for sure—I didn’t want to be lonely anymore.
I had a job I loved as a Special Education teacher at Carver Middle School in central Missouri. The kids were amazing, and their parents were supportive, unlike my last school where the parents believed their expensive tuition relieved them of their obligations to actually participate in their children’s education. Sadly, I was still alone, and I was getting a little long in the tooth to play the one-night game.
Unexpectedly, my diamond brought her brother to the Christmas Eve service at the local Lutheran church, and I found myself off-balance by the gorgeous man. I felt there was a sadness about him that made me want to hold him in my arms until his hurts healed. Of course, he was an Army Ranger, the toughest of the tough and the straightest of the straight. Between Ranger Hank, and his dog, Cosmo, I wanted things I couldn’t imagine were possible. Or were they?
“Ranger Hank” is available to read for free in Kindle Unlimited and is now available in paperback. mybook.to/Ranger_Hank The second book, “Guardian Gabe, The Lonely Heroes – Book 2,” is set to rerelease on May 2, and then each book subsequent book will rerelease on the second of each month. I will be adding a few books to the series, so more on that later!
I released an Easter book! “Georgie’s Eggcellent Adventure” is part of the Elves After Dawn collection, which comes on the heels of Elves After Dark, the Christmas collection. mybook.to/EAD. “Georgie’s Eggcellent Adventure” (mybook.to/GeorgieEADn7) is the spinoff of my Christmas book, “My Jingle Bell Heart,” mybook.to/EAD7.
Here’s the blurb:
What’s an elf gotta do to get respect?
When I’m called to Administration, I’m skeptical that the summons is related to any appreciation the Claus’ feel about how hard I work in the Porcelain Department as a detail painter. I believe it’s somehow in retaliation for my misunderstood relationship with Jingle Bell. Much to my surprise—and concern—I’m given a new assignment to become the Ambassador to the Mystical Convention… I’m being sent to the South Pacific to assist the Easter Bunny.
What awaits me isn’t clear, but I’m determined to shine at my task and show all the nay-sayers that Georgie Peppermint is destined for greatness.
Spring. A symbol of rebirth with blooming flowers, trees, and the arrival of babies in every species. It was always my favorite time of the year, but this year it’s bittersweet. I have a lovely life that’s idyllic to everyone who sees it, but all I see when I look around is loss.
For years, I’ve provided the eggs for Peter Cotton, a local import/exporter on Rapa Nui—Easter Island to outsiders—who holds a worldwide food drive every Spring to celebrate the rebirth on the planet. Sadly, I lost my partner last year, and unless I can find some help, I won’t be able to produce nearly enough eggs to help feed the masses.
Enter the oddly beautiful man wearing tourist clothes and a strange little straw hat. He’s nice and hard-working, a friend of Mr. Cotton’s, and has been sent to the island to assist me. I’m not sure how he can help, but with the sweetly cynical man around, I’m a lot less lonely.
People say there’s magic on Easter Island, thanks to the gods and goddesses who watch over its inhabitants, but never did I believe I’d come face-to-face with the manifestation of the mystical forces. And it all starts with the arrival of Georgie Pepper.
I have lots more plans in the works that I’ll tell you about as the year progresses. Here are all the ways you can find me.

I hope all are safe and well. I got my first Covid-19 shot, so I’m looking forward to things getting as close to normal as possible. I don’t think anyone of us will ever look at family photos pre-Covid and feel the same way.
