Cover Die Streuner von Rio

Lisa Kerry witnesses a private death squad attack street kids close to her bookstore. When the police take no action, she vows to purge Rio of the ruthless killers. To keep him out of the line of fire, she must quell her affection for the one man cut out to exorcise the demons of her past. Drawing strength and rage from the abuse she suffered as a young girl in a juvenile detention center, Lisa closes in on her marks. Unable to get to the rich and powerful leader of the recreational killers, she enlists the older brother of one of her street urchin friends—a drug lord. Lisa’s pursuit of justice spirals into a violent struggle to survive, for herself, her young charges, and the man she loves.

The English version can be purchased at all major online bookstores, for example amazon.com.

Crumple Zone released!

Psychological Suspense unfolding in Chile’s Atacama Desert

Cover for Crumple Zone

Lara, a workaholic from Seattle, loses her job, drowns her frustrations in scotch, and books a trip to Chile. Instead of facing her messed up life, she escapes to South America and hooks up with a backpacker, whose bag of tricks conveniently distracts her.

Hauling freight along the same route, trucker Enrique battles the loneliness of the Atacama Desert, imagining his wife by his side. If only she’d stop urging him to come home. With growing unease, he sets off on the return trip. When his path crosses Lara’s, the impact knocks them both off their errant tracks to face real life.

Intrigued? Read an excerpt at the publisher’s site: MuseItUp Publishing.

This novel was inspired by a real accident my partner and I had toward the end of a fantastic road trip through the Atacama Desert in 2008. We actually made the front page in a local newspaper. The star of this adventure was certainly our rented X-Trail. To find out more, see my guest post at Rosalie Skinner’s blog.

Going bilingual

Now that I’ve finished translating Strays of Rio and polished the German text as much as I can, I guess it’s time to add German content to my website. Notice the Languages drop-down menu in the top right corner? I’ve already translated most pages but there still some work to do. To my surprise, I’m actually enjoying it.
