The Silver Spoon (Zara Mitchell Story)
ISBN: 1590805488

Echelon Press Publishing. 2007

Zara Mitchell's nightmares began when the Observers landed. These strangely vivid visions continue to haunt her nightly, leaving her terrified of the silver-eyed visitors and their true intentions. When one of the eerily beautiful beings shows up at her diner with the local sheriff, her world changes forever. The Observer insists that she come with him. He claims her life is in danger. But can he be trusted? After two years, Caelan's search is finally over. He's found her, the human female from the prophecy. She is the one thing he recognizes from his life before Earth, his only link to the truth. Now all he has to do is keep her alive long enough to find the clues to a past he can't remember and a future she fears.

Bitter Pill (A Rennie Harlow Mystery)
ISBN: 159080550X

Echelon Press Publishing. 2008

The Truth Is...

It's been a bad year. Until recently, I had a handsome husband, a good job, and a renovated condo in Chicago. Now, thanks to one "exotically beautiful" paralegal, I'm divorced, faking my way through a freelance writing "career" and living above my hypochondriac mother's garage in Morrisville, the small town I couldn't leave fast enough at eighteen. On top of all that, I just found Doc Hallacy, local pharmacist, dead behind his counter. The worst part is, he's the third dead body I've stumbled across this year.

...A Bitter Pill

I guess it's bad luck, or maybe just bad timing. Former bad boy turned Morrisville Sheriff, Jake Bristol, thinks I'm just too nosy for my own good. But as a struggling freelancer for the Morrisville Gazette, it's my job to be nosy. So as I delve deeper into Doc's death, I'm not surprised to find that things don't add up. This isn't a "robbery gone wrong" or the work of a desperate junkie. I'm pretty sure someone has a secret they're killing to keep. Only question is--who's next?

Eye of the Beholder
ISBN: 1590806018

Echelon Press Publishing. 2008

Some women would be thrilled to have a troublesome ex-lover mysteriously disappear, but when he's an alien-human hybrid and you are supposed to be his leader...the rules change. Zara Mitchell fears the worst when Caelan vanishes while investigating a hate group...one that might have information about the strange female Observer they've been seeking. But Asha, Zara's rival and only available source for help, claims it's too dangerous to attempt a rescue. Desperate to locate Caelan and hoping against hope for a little luck, Zara strikes out on her own. Unfortunately, luck deserts her (just like everyone else) when she walks straight into a trap, one set just for her. Now, with the leader of the Observer Council breathing down her neck, and Caelan's time running out, Zara has to summon courage and strategy skills beyond anything she's ever known to save Caelan, herself and our world.
