Welcome to THE WOLFEN STRAIN. Half Jurassic Park, half Wolfen. A Beauty and the Beat tale flipped and ripped on its ear. Still reduced to 4.49!

The Wolfen Strain 

Product Description

In a remote compound in Wyoming a geneticist created the first female human-wolf hybrid and adopted her as his daughter. When Melina Salinger discovers who and what she really is she escapes her father's domain and sets out into the wilderness—any other life would be better than the one that was forced upon her.

Seth Anson, a ranger stationed at the Wheeler Ridge watchtower, is trying to get over a bitter divorce—working in the majestic Shoshone forest is the only way he knows how to get on with his life.

THE WAR GATE, A TIME-TRAVEL THRILLER INTO TERROR , HORROR AND MAGIC!  Full-length, 332 pages of thrills, romance and chills. Available on Amazon Kindle:

Tag Line: Through a miraculous conception, Avalon Labrador must give birth to herself before she is executed, to solve her husband’s murder and her own wrongful conviction.

When the reincarnated Avy Labrador is kicked out of her stepfather’s house on her 18th birthday, she has no idea that the man who raised her framed her mother to cover his murder so he could acquire a major software empire. Now, years later, with the help of her magician boyfriend, Sebastian, Avy is about to discover that her birth was otherworldly and for a purpose. The ancient Roman God Janus was so appalled by the heinous murder of Tom Labrador by his brother Drake that he opened up a War Gate. Avy has received half of her mother’s soul light and half of a God’s essence. Her mission is to put the real killer behind bars. The only catch: she must learn to “Gate-Walk”, that’s time traveling to the layman. She soon finds out that she is a drunk driver on the space/time continuum super highway.

“This was a solidly written tale with a trace of fantasy and complex thought used in defining the concept of leaping from one time gate to the next—excellent job of structuring.”

Terrie G, Bitten by Books, 4 out of 5.

“The War Gate is a captivating book. Mystery, magic and the paranormal blend together in a perfect mix. I would thoroughly recommend this book to fantasy enthusiasts who also like romance.

Orcid, Aurora Reviews, 5 out of 5.

War Gate Author's Note: The antagonist character, Wax Man, is not for the squeamish. I warn you ahead of time that he is the most disgusting, vile creature/human you're ever likely to read about. Not for younger readers under 13.

Gus Pelagatti’s The Wicked Wives

Lillian Stoner is a woman born into wealth and privilege.  A part of Philadelphia’s upper-crust, Lillian has been unhappily married to Reggie Stoner for nine long and boring years.  How different her marriage is from the world she’d been accustomed to. 

 In her youth, she was “the belle of the ball” with heads turning “on any street I set foot on.”  Then she married a man her father was convinced was not good enough for her.  He may have been right.

Cut off from her inheritance, Lillian used what little money she had left to fund Reggie’s new business.  A big mistake!  Due to the depression era economy, the business failed miserably. 

Disappointed, angry, and totally lacking any respect for her “loser” husband, Lillian is convinced that she has found a way to solve her marital difficulties…once and for all! 

Over the course of several weeks, Reggie Stoner gradually becomes gravely ill.  His doctor has diagnosed the problem as pneumonia.  The prognosis is indeed grim.  Reggie is slowly dying and the doctor is at a loss to figure out why this is happening.

Lillian Stoner is about to lose her husband.  So, why is she smiling?

New release... Ultimate Justice the sixth book in the Justice series. Only $2.99.

A ship wreck— Dozens of bodies washed ashore— Clear evidence that evil has made port in London. The horrific case piques the interest of P.I. Lorne Simpkins. It doesn't take long before Lorne learns that young, helpless women are being caged and sold to the wealthy and salacious. Old wounds are wrenched open when she suspects a cover-up by the very authorities that should be keeping lawful order. Can she trust the self-serving journalist bent on making the human-trafficking ring his next big story? When her daughter is involved in a life-threatening accident, it's difficult for Lorne to keep her head in the game. But Lorne and her ex-MI6 husband, Tony, are determined to end the repulsive slave trade and bring the criminals to justice—even if it means Lorne ends up locked in a cage herself.
