Book excerpt: "'No one talks about what happens when you fall in love with the boy next door -- not when you're the boy living beside the boy next door.' Jared didn't want to do it, but it had to be done. Someone had to sit before the government hearing to explain why a gay man was nothing to be vilified, nothing to be hated or feared... that he was just a man. That is what Jared Montgomery is determined to do. He does so by sharing his story -- his and Luke's story -- in the hopes that perhaps even just one more person could understand. Luke and Jared were battling the odds from the beginning. Growing up beside each other, being best friends, they soon learned that if they wanted to share each other's company, it had to be done in secret, in the confines of the old train car behind the junkyard. There, they were free of the taunts and jibes, the ridicule and hatred... or were they? Unable to embrace who he is, unable to deal with the tactics used by his family to 'cure' him, Luke forces himself into a traditional marriage that is doomed from the start. His true, self-denied love for Jared, and the hatred surrounding it, is killing him. The question is, can Jared get to him before it is too late?" --From publisher description.

Book excerpt: When a five-foot-nothing lawyer's client goes missing, nothing will get in the way of her efforts to find him—not even a violent terrorist cell, a trained assassin, and an opioid-trafficking ring. You guessed it. Sasha McCandless-Connelly is back. When Sasha's client is a no-show for his federal sentencing hearing in a bulk money smuggling case, the presiding judge is not amused. He gives her the weekend to locate the guy or face the consequences. She tracks down her client in a remote West Virginia town, but it's not the end of her problems—it's just the beginning. He's being held hostage by violent men who are convinced he's the key to eight million dollars that have gone missing from a terrorist organization's coffers. After a day passes with no word from Sasha, an increasingly worried Leo leaves the kids with a friend and heads to West Virginia in search of his wife. He arrives only to end up in the middle of a massive drug-trafficking investigation. Cut off from one another and from any means of communication and surrounded by players who aren't who they seem to be, Sasha and Leo each figure out half of the story. Now, they're running out of time to put it all together. But anyone who knows Sasha and Leo knows better than to bet against them.

This book was released on 2020-11-19 with total page 1036 pages. Book excerpt: This set includes the full-length novels Intentional Acts, In Absentia, and Inevitable Discovery and the novella Full Fathom Five. In Intentional Acts (Book 12), Sasha and Leo find themselves on opposite sides of an explosive situation. Sasha's up to her elbows in a data privacy matter. Her client could be on the hook for breaching the privacy of hundreds of customers. All because a rogue employee intentionally leaked personal information for reasons known only to him. Leo's busy with a high-stakes case of his own. He's been ordered to neutralize a national security threat, but he has his doubts about the strength of the evidence against the target. As Leo vets the information he's been given, Sasha learns that federal law enforcement has an interest in her civil matter. Because they both take their duties of confidentiality seriously, neither realizes that their cases are intertwined. Until one of the affected customers in Sasha's case is murdered … and the evidence points to Leo as the killer. Sasha’s not about to turn in her own husband, so she tails him. She only hopes what she finds will clear his name, not destroy their marriage. In In Absentia (Book 12), nothing will stop Sasha from finding her missing client—not even a violent terrorist cell, a trained assassin, and an opioid-trafficking ring. When Sasha's client is a no-show for his federal sentencing hearing in a bulk money smuggling case, the presiding judge is not amused. He gives her the weekend to locate the guy or face the consequences. She tracks the client to a remote West Virginia town, but it's not the end of her problems—it's just the beginning. He's being held hostage by violent men convinced he's the key to eight million dollars missing from a terrorist organization's coffers. After a day passes with no word from Sasha, an increasingly worried Leo leaves the kids with a friend and heads to West Virginia to search for her. He finds himself in the middle of a massive drug-trafficking investigation. Cut off from one another and from any means of communication and surrounded by players who aren't who they seem to be, Sasha and Leo each figure out half of the story. Now, they're running out of time to put it all together. Echoes of grief and pain reverberate across the decades in Inevitable Discovery (Book 13). On November 20, 1999, a phone call shattered Sasha McCandless' family with the news that her brother Patrick had been shot and killed. Exactly twenty years later, another middle of the night phone call thrusts Sasha into a dangerous new case. A protest over the death of a young man at the hands of the Milltown Police ends with several protestors being snatched off the street by a group of black-clad armed men. Sasha agrees to represent three of the detainees in a case against the police department and the secretive organization that abducted them. As her investigation heats up, she becomes a target. Meanwhile, a chance encounter with a college student brings her past crashing into the present. Her search for the truth will reopen old wounds and cause fresh pain. Get cozy with Full Fathom Five (Book 13.5), a McCandless-Connelly Family Mystery Novella! It's the week after Christmas, and the McCandless-Connelly family is snowed in. Really snowed in. Roads are closed. Stores are closed. A curfew is in place. And Sasha and Leo's five-year-old twins are climbing the walls. A game of hide and seek is meant to keep Finn and Fiona busy, not turn up a sixty-five-year-old mystery. But when the kids find an old metal box hidden in the attic's wall, they have a million questions: How did a military plane vanish in a Pittsburgh river? Whose dog tags with Cyrillic letters are in the box? The twins are swept up in the mystery and, soon, so are Sasha and Leo. They're cut off, locked in, and hot on the scent of a dangerous secret.

Book excerpt: At 2:30 on an unseasonably cool, partly cloudy afternoon in late September 1911, the cement dam located a mile above the mill town of Austin, Pennsylvania, gave way, unleashing a wall of water cascading down the narrow valley toward the town and sweeping away everything in its path with the explosive power of a nuclear bomb. Lulled by the assurance of engineering experts that the dam would forever withstand the pressure of the pent-up waters above the town, three thousand unsuspecting residents of Austin went about their slow-paced Saturday routines. Some floundered and drowned in the raging waters that consumed the town, some were battered to death by logs and debris swept up by the torrent, and some, the lucky ones, raced to the safety of higher ground. Stories of heroism, sacrifice, cowardice, and selfishness emerged from the aftermath. The residents of Austin represented; after all, simply a crosscut sample of humanity, exposing the best and worst in times of crisis. Washed Away is a work of fiction that unfolds in the historical context of this real-life tragedy. Committed to go beyond the sensational journalism of that era, two enterprising young reporters from Buffalo, Rusty Shephard and Katie Keenan, join forces to investigate the causes and determine accountability for the disaster. As their investigation begins to unmask the deceit and greed of those responsible, they encounter desperate acts of coverup, recrimination, suicide, and murder, placing their own lives in mortal danger. In their journey to uncover the truth and seek justice, they are absorbed in the emotional turmoil of the town and of their own relationship.

Book excerpt: To have a story published is a joy beyond comprehension. This is my second book. To have someone read it, like it and ask for more is a blessing beyond my wildest dreams. I think with this story I have solidified a style for what I write. My dream is to have a story made into a film. With each story, I also adapt it to a motion picture script because in my mind it's playing that way as I write it. I am determined to make it happen someday, God willing. For now.... Enjoy this story and realize I write because I love life and feel that no one should be violated from the cowards that lay in the shadows. The weak, meek and young should be protected at all costs. My stories are fiction but my beliefs are real. Leo Greco (the main character) was not going away upon his retirement from his police job, he was just moving to another branch of law enforcement. Only this time God was his boss. One of the commandments is, “Thou shall not kill”, to Leo Greco that didn't mean much. To him, an eye for an eye was a better fit. If you dare to rape, abuse, kill, rob, threaten, beat or drug a weaker person. If you got out of jail and did it again. If you laughed at the laws you abused because you know you'd be able to commit crimes again. Chances are you'd meet your destiny. Chances are you'd see why you were about to die. The HIT SQUAD always gave you a reason before you were killed. No person was to be hit without knowing why he was about to die. That rule was instilled by Mr. Leo Greco. That rule was followed by all.

Book excerpt: 2017 Freedley Award Finalist, Theatre Library Association 2016 Best Circus Book of the Year, Stuart Thayer Prize, Circus Historical Society The 1960s American hippie-clown boom fostered many creative impulses, including neo-vaudeville and Ringling's Clown College. However, the origin of that impulse, clowning with a circus, has largely gone unexamined. David Carlyon, through an autoethnographic examination of his own experiences in clowning, offers a close reading of the education of a professional circus clown, woven through an eye-opening, sometimes funny, occasionally poignant look at circus life. Layering critical reflections of personal experience with connections to wider scholarship, Carlyon focuses on the work of clowning while interrogating what clowns actually do, rather than using them as stand-ins for conceptual ideas or as sentimental figures.

Book excerpt: *****Pre-order and release week discounted price!***** From New York Times and USATODAY Bestselling Author Nicole Williams: Her heart can’t be destroyed by the same person twice. At least that’s what Clara Abbot finds herself hoping when she runs into Boone Cavanaugh less than an hour after returning to Charleston. As kids, Clara and Boone had been each other’s firsts, and no one or nothing could stand in the way of their forever. But all kids have to grow up sometime. The troubled son of the town drunk winding up with the firstborn daughter of the local royalty was a happy ending even the most imaginative of fairy tales couldn’t make believable. Their fable came to an end as most do: tragically. Boone might have done the leaving, but it was Clara who got away and made a new life for herself in California. But after seven years of dodging her hometown, she’s only back in Charleston for seven days to celebrate her sister’s wedding. She won’t let her overbearing family or her run-in with Boone rattle her—though rattling her is obviously Boone’s primary objective. Boone is her past and her past is behind her, a mere speck in the rearview. So why does she feel it coming back every time she looks at him? Why does she see it every time he looks back? Just when Clara’s life can’t possibly get more complicated, the ground shifts, and she discovers just how far her family was willing to go to keep the wrong boy out of her life. Was it really Boone who left her? Or was it Clara who left him? The truth will be hard to face. Especially when she discovers most of her life has been built on lies.
