Stranded On Thin Ice

This page-turning, heart-pounding survival story and AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER will keep you on the edge of your seat! Stranded on Thin Ice is an adventure story for boys and girls and the whole family. 

Twelve-year-old Tanner Phillips fishes the Oneida Lake Ice Fishing Derby every year with his dad. Last year, he ruined everything—losing the competition and losing some of his grandfather's gear. This year, Tanner is determined to not only prove his skills on the ice but also show his dad, once and for all, that he's no longer a little kid. 

But as soon as they get out on the ice, the competition turns disastrous. When one of the competitors goes missing and another gets injured, Tanner's father must leave Tanner and his new friend, Richie, alone on the ice. After their ice hut comes unhitched, Tanner and Richie find themselves blown across the frozen lake in a blinding snowstorm. 


Without their cell phones. 

Trapped, on thin ice. 

Suddenly, it isn't just about winning the derby—it's about life and death. In one perilous night, Tanner will have to prove not to his father, but to himself, that he has the courage and determination to survive. Can Tanner and Richie survive the unthinkable? Can they survive Stranded on Thin Ice?

Man with the Sand Dollar Face

A Nail-Biting Pulp Noir Crime Thriller with a Hard-Boiled Amateur Sleuth.

Hattie Crumford, a quirky widow in her early sixties, takes her first job answering the phone in a private investigator's office.

Running a little late one morning, she discovers an agitated man pacing at the office door. He insists he must see the PI immediately. In the midst of his anxious demands, he clutches his chest and collapses.

Shocked, Hattie runs for help. Upon returning, the man has disappeared. Detective Hugo Gabby and Hattie’s boss, Wallace C. Woodard, are skeptical and dismissive of her story.

To prove it’s not her wild imagination, Hattie sets out to find the missing man using only the cryptic note he left in his place and his last words as her clues.

As the story unfolds, Hattie Crumford finds herself embroiled in an international drug trafficking ring.

Everything hinges on the Man with the Sand Dollar Face.

Silent Fireworks

It’s June in Elmont, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains and a crowd has gathered for the opportunity to witness fireflies communicating in a beautifully unique and unexplainable manner. But wait, these aren’t just regular backyard fireflies…these fireflies synchronize their sparkle.

Most fireflies that synchronize their flash are found in Southeast Asia. Some species are in the United States. Synchronizing fireflies’ habitat within the United States includes Tennessee, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Arizona. The most spectacular display is found in the Great Smoky Mountains. You can catch a ride to the event on the shuttle in the town of Elkmont, Tennessee.

Fireflies are a magical part of childhood. Sadly, their numbers are diminishing. Light pollution disrupts their mating patterns. Parking lots and buildings have replaced their natural landscape. What can you do to help? Look for the recipe for home-grown fireflies at the end of the book.

Room For Grace

“Room for Grace is a heart-warming story about the power of compassion and acceptance. Although intended for young people, this tale will resonate with all ages, since its message is too seldom heard.

The narrator is a young girl who is forced by her mother to share her world with Grace, an unkempt and scruffy stranger her own age who needs temporary shelter. She hates the thought of having Grace for a roommate and having to drag her along with her to school.

Once in school, her actions make it clear to Grace that she is unwanted and unwelcome. Grace is secluded, not only from her but from her classmates, who quickly pick up on her disdain for her new friend.

Then, she has a moment of insight. She experiences Grace’s pain and suffering and her own indifference and hostility. As empathy replaces contempt, she sees Grace, not as a stranger, but as another human being. She is open now to Grace’s corresponding motions of comfort and friendship.

The walls of reservation and resentment have been knocked down upon the commonality of their humanity.”
