How far will a man go to protect his family?
When the director of Child Protective Services uses his position to exact a personal vendetta in removing three-year-old Ashley from the Blake’s home, Jeff Blake, a financial advisor, responds to the threats in the only way he feels he can – violently. By the end of the short encounter, three people are dead and Ashley, the daughter, is still taken and placed in temporary foster care, so the tragic fiasco gained Jeff nothing. Or, so it seems.
Matters are further complicated when Amy, the wife and mother, winds up for a brief stay in a mental ward due to the trauma she witnessed in their home. It seems as though everything is against the Blakes. Understandably, the police, as well as the Courts, are not too concerned with the needs of the family. Complete with many twists of fate, the story looks at the common problems of a typical family caught between love and the law.
“Exceptional! One of those books you can’t put down!”

Sentenced to fifteen years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Ethan Rafferty has one thing on his mind – payback! With his time up, the ex-con is free to pursue his mission of revenge.
During the trial, the District Attorney, Mariana Clark, suppressed evidence that would’ve exonerated him and now is the focus of Ethan’s vengeance.

Unable to retaliate through the courts, considering the role she played, Mariana chooses to fight fire with fire. Soon, their feud escalates to a point where neither imagined it would go.

You will never look at the court system the same again!

Parkview Manor has a secret, and eighteen-year-old Cynthia is curious!
When Cynthia Holt takes a job at a former sanitarium, now operating as an assisted living center, she instantly discovers something more is occurring than simply providing the elderly with housing and care. Something very strange is going on behind the locked door of Room 913!
After she is warned to stay away from the room and to not discuss it or the occupant with her co-workers, she is even more intrigued – and suspicious! Letting her curious nature guide her, she immediately begins asking questions. When she finds that Room 913 has been closed off; locked and sealed for many years, her curiosity turns to concern. Though rumors abound, no one seems inclined to talk about it.
Not giving up so easily, Cynthia persists in her pursuit until she finds out the truth – or does she?
“Excellent book! 5 Stars! I thought I’d figured it out, and then…”

Who Knew Running Away Could Be So Hard?
When a teenage boy, who thinks he knows it all, leaves home in search of a better life, he finds out the hard way what everyone must learn – growing up isn’t an easy thing to do.
Leaving home at fifteen, Kyle Davis’ path to adulthood takes him on an eventful ride, and at times a dangerous one. His firsthand experiences with the cruel realities of a callous world drive home the point that he has a lot to learn and a long ways to go.
Unwilling to admit his mistakes, he flounders a while before finally accepting life for what it is – hard work. It takes considerably more time for him to reach the point of going home and apologizing. That’s when he discovers the world didn’t stop to wait for him. Home isn’t quite the way he remembers it, and he sees how drastically things can change.
Still, certain things remain the same; principles and values are a constant. It isn’t a persons age, location or where they are in life that determines when they’ve become an adult. Kyle realizes The Journey is more than merely miles traveled. The road to maturity, whether literal or figurative, takes a person only as fast as they are willing to go. Yet, at some point, everyone has to make The Journey.

Assignment: “Eliminate the terrorist threat by any means necessary.”
The terrorism risk in American has reached an all-time high. Recognizing the need for an aggressive response, Homeland Security assigns Wynn C. Garrett to eliminate the threat of the Al Jahbid terrorist organization, by “any means necessary.” Believing he is a former Navy Seal, they expect him to be politically correct and follow reasonable guidelines of war. He turns out to be anything but reasonable. While he single-handedly exacts vengeance on the terrorists who target America, his questionable tactics are met with disapproval from his bosses, Thomas Wardahl and Richard Scorby. Their attempts to curb his reckless behavior are unsuccessful and Wynn Garrett is well on his way to completing the assignment before they discover his true identity.
“Absolutely loved it! The cynical humor comes through on every page!”
Wynn Garrett is back, terrorizing the terrorists!
Muhammad Shaweh, a deranged lunatic who believes himself to be the reincarnated prophet of Islam, is one of five Islamic Caliphs behind the Death To America terrorist organization. When co-directors of the Anti-terrorist Operation, Thomas Wardahl and Richard Scorby, get wind of the religious leaders’ campaign, they respond by sending Wynn Garrett to eliminate the threat. The assignment takes the lone operative to the Nevada desert where he discovers a well-organized, well-funded terrorist training center. A target himself, Wynn Garrett wages his own holy war in an effort to destroy the entire terrorist camp. A brave man, a noble cause, a heroic plan, but will it work?
The best way to deal with terrorism? Kill the terrorists!
The terrorists are getting smarter, but are they smart enough to beat Wynn Garrett? When Thomas Wardahl and Richard Scorby, uncover a terrorist plot to target several American cities using multiple simultaneous attacks from unmanned missile launching sites, they are quick to initiate a response. The co-directors of the Anti-terrorist Operation contact their operative Wynn Garrett who is confident he can deliver – but he doesn’t plan on trying to do his job from jail. Meanwhile, an unknown number of missiles are waiting to be launched at the push of a button…
Court is in session; Wynn Garrett presiding.
America is being threatened from within as several high-level federal judges, sympathetic to the terrorists’ cause, conspire to use their position on the Court to aid their fellow Muslims. Thomas Wardahl and Richard Scorby, co-directors of the Anti-terrorist Operation, have other plans. Realizing the danger the judges pose to national security, they call their only operative, Wynn Garrett, into action. Always ready to defend America from any threat, Wynn conducts a slightly unconventional judicial review. But targeting judges turns out to be more difficult than it first seems.
“My favorite new series!”
One man against an unknown number of terrorists.
When a digital interface containing sensitive government documents and classified information is stolen from the Anti-terrorist Operation by the terrorist group ASAD, Wynn Garrett is called into action. His assignment initially is to only retrieve the interface but soon turns into more after ASAD attempts to kill him. Ignoring his original mission of finding the interface, in favor of eliminating the targets, his violent tendencies create a political uproar. His bosses, Thomas Wardahl and Richard Scorby are ordered by the President to immediately shut down operations. Wynn Garrett objects, vowing to complete his assignment. In his usual aggressive approach, Wynn manages to function successfully on his own and the terrorists get more than they bargained for.
Fighting terrorism is a dangerous business!
The terrorists are planning to bomb a passenger train and Wynn Garrett is planning to stop them. But the typical non-specific threat means no one is sure when or where the terrorists will strike. To prevent the attack Wynn will need to be a passenger on the train – and he doesn’t like trains! Wardahl and Scorby worry his usual behavior will incite panic among the passengers before he actually gets the job done. All is well that ends well, but with Wynn they’re never sure how things will end!
