Can Layna Wood predict the future?
But when Layna returns home one day and interrupts an intruder ransacking her apartment, there's suddenly more at stake than just her musical career - like her life.
If so, she imagines it's going to be pretty similar to the present: Life as a hardworking office drone by day, and an aspiring country singer by night. She's accepted she might never catch the big break she's dreamed of, or ever 'make it' in Nashville's competitive country music scene.
Who was the intruder? What was he looking for? And - more importantly - will he be back?
Layna's scared, but she's not alone. She has her best friend by her side, and a distractingly attractive cop watching her back - but will it be enough?
Because if Layna's got any hope of safeguarding her future, she's going to have to look back into her past; and she might not like what she finds out.
Petrified Wood is the first of the Layna Wood series - tautly written, intense and emotional romantic suspense that fans of Barbara O'Neal, Catherine Bybee, and Tracy Buchanan will instantly embrace.

Singer/songwriter Layna is adjusting to a new reality.
Layna learned that the universe resonates like a guitar string - and she's one of the rare few who can hear its music.
Until recently, talented musician Layna Wood had been struggling to catch her big break in Nashville's country music scene. Then, everything changed - when she discovered that it wasn't just musical talent that her absent father had gifted her with.
But this isn't a gift she asked for, or wanted - and it's already put her life in danger. Now, Layna's desperate to master her new ability before it gets her into trouble once again.
But what seems like a safe opportunity to explore her talents - solving a small-time robbery at an old-folks home - soon spirals out of control. Layna learns that evil lurks deep within the hearts of the people you'd least expect it to; and sensing somebody else's future could end up jeopardizing her own.
Splintered Wood is the second of the Layna Wood series - a richly emotional tale of romantic suspense that fans of Catherine Bybee, Barbara O'Neal, and Tracy Buchanan won't be able to put down.

Corey is Layna's partner, her soulmate, and her senser. So, why is she keeping secrets from him?
Aspiring singer/songwriter Layna Wood didn't just inherit musical talent from her absent father - she's also inherited the abilities of a seer; able to connect with and sense the universe at a far deeper level than most.
But as Layna's ability grows, so too does the pressure to keep her talents secret; especially as she gains the ability to sense things even her mentor, Marjory, never warned her about - things like ghosts.
She soon learns that dead men DO tell tales - but how can Layna explain the things she discovers to her lover, Corey? He's a no-nonsense, by-the-book law-officer who most definitely doesn't believe in ghosts.
But the longer Layna keeps her secrets, the more of the truth she uncovers threatens to put her and her family in danger; and soon Layna has to choose between communing with ghosts, or running the risk of becoming one herself.
Drift Wood is the third in the Layna Wood series of romantic suspense novels - tautly written, rich and emotional, and sure to be an instant hit with fans of Tracy Buchanan, Catherine Bybee, and Barbara O'Neal.

Robin Patchen writes contemporary Christian suspense, romance, and romantic suspense. Her books are often set in New England, where she grew up. She creates strong, protective heroes and intelligent, courageous heroines.
Aside from her family and her Savior, Robin Patchen has two loves--writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she'd spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She'd visit every place in the entire world--twice, if possible--and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Robin to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Oklahoma, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.

Normandie had the best of several worlds: a Southern heritage, access to schooling in the DC area (which meant lots of cultural adventures), and several years of sculpture studies in Italy. It might have been better for her if she'd used all these opportunities more wisely, but it's possible that the imperfect and the unwise also add fodder for the artist and the writer.

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!"

I am a native Angeleno, specifically an original valley girl. (Cue Frank Zappa music). I am a self-professed bibliophile, with a Kindle library larger than Imelda Marcos' closet. I have also been writing since I was old enough to form letters when someone shoved a crayon into my tiny little fist as a toddler. Those letters eventually became sentences, and those sentences eventually turned into stories. It took a long time before I was able to turn those stories into something I felt was worthy of sharing with the world, but finally here we are. I hope that you agree.
As for the rest of me, I'm a 40-something (no, I'm not going to tell you how many somethings follow the 40) mother of three who has been married to my husband for 16 years. We live in a small enclave just north of Los Angeles with my aunt, who is also an author.
Shattered Perfection is my debut novel. The original draft was written over a three week period in October/November 2014. It "marinated" on my hard drive until February 2015, when a good friend and fellow author begged to read it. I was completely against the idea, but being the persuasive and amazingly handsome fellow he is, he was impossible to resist.
After far less rewriting and editing than I imagined would be necessary, I am now able to share with you a story that I hope will make you laugh, cry and ultimately feel as though you have loved right along with Mimi and Vance.

USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
