All the Blue-Eyed Angels

All the Blue Eyed AngelsEbook1

Jonestown. The Solar Temple. Heaven’s Gate. In the summer of 1990, the Payson Church of Tomorrow joins the ranks of those infamous cult suicides when thirty-four members burn to death on a small island off the coast of Maine. At ten years old, Payson member Erin Solomon watches helplessly as the church and its congregation are reduced to ash and embers.

More than twenty years later, Erin is an accomplished investigative journalist when she receives word that she has inherited Payson Isle… and all its ghosts. She returns to Maine to learn the truth behind the tragedy that has haunted her since childhood, aided by the rakish mentor who’s stood by her side since she was a teenager, her trusty mutt Einstein, and a mysterious stranger with his own dark past.

Soon, Erin is enmeshed in a decades-old conspiracy rooted in lust,  delusion, and betrayal, as she fights to unearth the secrets of the Payson Church of Tomorrow — secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

“Creepy, tense, and thoroughly addictive… I loved everything about this book.”

Sins of the FatherEbook

The brutal murder of a young girl more than forty years ago pulls investigative reporter Erin Solomon into a serpentine mystery revolving around her own father’s dark past. The trail leads Erin and fellow reporter Daniel “Diggs” Diggins to Black Falls, Maine, a town steeped in the Acadian tradition, where young girls have gone missing with terrifying frequency for decades. Soon, it’s clear that the father Erin thought she knew has buried secrets she never could have imagined.

When the killer sets his sights on Erin, her relentless pursuit of the truth lands her and Diggs in the rugged wilderness along the Maine/Canada border. With a deranged serial killer on their heels, FBI agent Jack Juarez battles the clock while Erin and Diggs fight for their lives in a diabolical game of cat and mouse among the rivers and caves of the Acadian forest.
