Hunt a Killer in the Thrilling Harmony Series!


JR Thompson was born and raised in West Virginia. For more than fifteen years he worked with at-risk youth there. He married and moved to a small ghost town in Montana, where God called him to preach. He now serves as an assistant pastor in a neighboring town and also serves as the director of Canaan's Land Boys Ranch.

On more of a negative note, JR humbly admits that he is an addict - that's right, he can never get enough Dr. Pepper and has been that way for years.

In addition to writing and ministerial work, Thompson loves the outdoors - he and his wife enjoy going camping in tents (and they make sure to take their bear spray with them - especially since a blackbear got inside their Jeep and ripped up the seats in recent months), hiking, and doing anything to enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

Women's Fiction from Judith Keim

Judith Keim was born and raised in Elmira, New York, and now makes her home in Idaho with her husband and their long-haired dachshund, Winston, and other members of her family. 

Growing up, books were always present being read, ready to go back to the library, or about to be discovered. Information from the books was shared in general conversation, giving all of us in the family a wealth of knowledge and a lot of imagination. Perhaps that is why I was drawn to the idea of writing stories early on. I particularly love to write novels about women who face unexpected challenges and meet them with strength. 

A hybrid author who both has a publisher and who self-publishes, Ms. Keim writes heart-warming stories of strong women who face challenges and find love and happiness along the way. Her books are based, in part, on many of the places she's lived or visited and on the interesting people she's met, creating believable characters and realistic settings her many, loyal readers love.

Her readers are presently awaiting the 4th and final book in the Salty Key Inn series -FINDING FAMILY - which will be available for pre-order mid-August.

I write contemporary sweet romances and cozy mysteries. I live in a small town in Washington State, near Seattle. I love to write about small coastal towns, although those that I write about are figments of my imagination. 

I used to be a tax accountant, but realized that writing romantic stories about people falling in love or making my amateur sleuths discover secrets about their suspects was way more fun than depreciating assets. 

There's never a dull moment in my household, with a tech geek husband, two small boys that keep me on my toes, two cranky cats, and a mischievous house rabbit. Tidbits of my everyday life have a tendency to find their way into my fiction, so watch out! :)

Best-Selling Romantic Suspense from Deborah Camp!

Best-Selling Romantic Suspense from Deborah Camp!

5 Stars from a Reader Like You! Check them out on Amazon.
"Deborah Camp has done it again . . . added another fascinating book to her long list of entertaining reads. THROUGH HIS EYES is a romantic suspense chock full of both . . . steamy, titillating romance and edge of your seat suspense.

I loved the paranormal twist with psychics Trudy Tucker and Levi Wolfe. Trudy has the ability to see and feel the horrific acts committed by murderers. Levi can speak to the victims, chronicling the last hours, even minutes, of their life. They team up to end the gruesome spree of a serial killer in the Florida Keys. Along the way, they realize their connection is much more than shared psychic abilities as their hearts and bodies entwine as tightly as their minds.

Some of the scenes viewed by Trudy are graphic. I typically don't like extreme violence but these scenes are necessary to fully translate the villain's evil intentions. While at times intense, the balance is restored with witty banter and sexy encounters between Levi and Trudy.

THROUGH HIS EYES is a well written thriller with a healthy dose of romance. It should be on the "must read" list of every romantic suspense reader but more than that, anyone who enjoys a good crime novel or action thriller will definitely want to consider this novel for their library. A very good read!"

Gritty Mysteries from RS Guthrie

R.S. (Rob) Guthrie is an American Mystery/Thriller writer whose bestselling Sheriff James Pruett series has created a central character that transcends old barriers and stereotypes—a hero for the twenty-first century.

The backdrop for Guthrie’s Pruett is the Wyoming town in which he was raised—a rugged, mountainous town in the northwest corner of the state, surrounded by three picturesque, majestic, remote mountain ranges; a town with a culture and residents that measure a man or woman on the temerity, integrity, and loyal honor of the individual.

The author lives in Wyoming; in the town in which he was raised and about which he writes. After over thirty years spread between Los Angeles and Denver, Guthrie knew he must return to the forever-deep and sturdy roots of his heritage. When not writing, the author spends his time with his Australian Shepherds, splitting wood for the fire, ice-fishing with his friends, hiking and biking the spectacular wilderness and glacier-fed lakes, and thanking God every day for the opportunity to live in such a unique, exceptional, exquisite country.

Fans of Fried Green Tomatoes and Steel Magnolias will Love the Memory House Series!

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books have been southern fiction, historical fiction, and women's fiction bestsellers. Midwest book review describes her books as "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures."

"Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write.

It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win over twenty awards for her work including: The Royal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, In'DTale RONE Award Winner, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.

Steamy Tales from Rowanna Green

According to Book Viral, “Ro Green is one of few writers whose voice is distinct enough to be immediately recognizable.” Ro writes hard-hitting, thrilling stories peopled with strong, sexy women who find themselves in challenging situations. These character-driven contemporary tales are packed with tension, adventure and snarky wit, but above all, romance. Ro Green squanders most of her leisure time reading, writing and listening to music. Almost every minute of every day sees her sat at a keyboard, furtling with a story (hers or someone else's) or chatting to her many friends all over the world. That's living alright! Well it is when you combine it with frequent trips to Wet, Windy Wales or Wondrous Wessex. Ro lives with her husband in the middle of England with the odd visit from their three darlings. Half a century of people, countries and experiences are fighting inside her mind to get themselves down on paper. So many stories, so little time.

 
 

Jeopardy Series By Rowanna Green

Described as “Hot, Hilarious and Hair-raising,” and “Dramatic, Swoon-worthy romance,” these stories feature the naughty adventures of Sexy Lexie and her friends. An innocent at the start, Lexie’s “awakening” leads to an entrancing mission of self-discovery. As she chats to her friends, she realises they all have similar tales to tell about suffering at the hands of unscrupulous men - well, it was the 80's!

Warning: Although generally light-hearted, these steamy, office-based shorts with a twist in the tail are not for the faint of heart. Or under-18s. Or people who don't like their heroines in too much trouble.

Before I wrote, I read. Voraciously. When I wasn’t able to read, I listened to audio books on tape or CD. Still do.

My name is Robynn E Sheahan and I live and write from the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. 

I started to dabble in writing while working as a Paramedic/Firefighter in Northern California. Trust me, it’s not like it appears on TV. There was plenty of time for books. 

Ideas from dreams follow me into warm sunny days or the quiet of falling snow. What ifs feed a vivid imagination. Even miss-typed phrases may lead to an aha moment. Brain storming sessions standing in windy, dark parking lots with fellow writers release thoughts that pry at the corners of my mind, grasping for purchase. Sometimes the ideas pursue me, with persistence. 

About three years ago the dabbling became serious when worlds and characters screamed for, no, demanded attention. So I wrote my first manuscript. Critiques and rewrites filled the next two years.

I now had STORM OF ARRANON, the first book in the series.

Riveting Medical Thrillers from a Real Doctor!

 

I was born in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, moved to Queens, and then, as New Yorkers say, we ascended to the Island. 
After graduating from Valley Stream Central High School, I went to Adelphi, a college then, a university now, and then to medical school in Chicago. 
The war in Vietnam interrupted my postgraduate training with a year in Colorado Springs and another as a Battalion Surgeon in Vietnam. I spent seven months in the Central Highlands with the 4th Infantry and five months in an evacuation hospital in Long Binh outside Saigon where I ran the emergency room. 
I returned intact in 1968 to complete my training in internal medicine and diseases of the kidney, nephrology. 
I worked for twenty-three years in Berkeley, California in a hospital-based practice caring for patients with complicated illnesses often in ICU and served as Chief of Medicine. 
My wife Dorlis and I retired in October 1995 and sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge for a life at sea in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. 
Four years later, exhausted from repairing everything on board, (often many times) we sold the sailboat and within a year took the lazy man's out; we bought a Nordic Tug, a trawler. We motored around Florida, the Bahamas, the entire East Coast and completed two 'Circle trips' to Canada and back, eight months, the first time, five months, the second. 
I wrote professionally as a physician to inform but rarely to entertain, at least not on purpose. 
First, Do No Harm was published in April 2007. No Cure for Murder was released in August 2011. For the Love of God was published in January 2012 and The Sixth Sense in July 2012.
In the last two years, I've written three screenplays based on my novels and hope to see one or more produced for the screen. I submitted my screenplay, Rage to the 80th Annual Writer's Digest contest and won honorable mention (57 out of 11,000).
We live in beautiful Grass Valley with 13 year old Mike, a terrier mix and Bennie, a 7 year old purebred though enormous Yorkie.

I wrote my first novel in college at the University of Wyoming, played lead guitar in Pinky’s bar as a member of “Suzy Q and the Quad City Ramblers,” Got an English degree, then an engineering degree, worked a lot, got married to Traci (probably the best thing to ever happen), wrote several books with Raymond Dean White, retired recently from said engineering and started writing again.
Now I write cheerfully demented novels about con artists and overweight PIs, play guitar a lot (on a very well used and loved 1954 Martin D-18 (for those of you who have guitar lust—centerfold picture available on request) and generally am having the best retirement ever.

Sweet Western Romances - Happy Endings Guaranteed!

Born and raised in a small coastal town in the south I realized at a young age that I was more adventurous than my conservative friends and family. I loved to travel. My passion for travel opened up a whole new world and new cultures to me that I will always be grateful for. I was raised to treasure family. I always knew that at some point in my life I would leave my story book life and become someone's mother, someone's aunt and hopefully someone's grandmother. Little did I know that the birth of my son at a later stage in life would make me the happiest I’ve ever been. He will always be my biggest achievement. The desire to be a work-from-home mom is what lead me down this path of publishing books. 


While I have always loved reading I never realized how much I would love writing until I started. I feel like each one of my books have been influenced by someone or something I’ve experienced in my life. To be able to share this gift has become a dream come true. 

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
