Tim Farrell is a survivor. From behind-the-lines raiding for the Union Army to fighting Comanche in Texas, he does whatever is necessary to win, however distasteful. When he left it all behind and went back to farming, he hoped to find peace, but a man can’t leave his memories behind.
Homesteading in Colorado, Tim fights claim jumpers, Indians, corrupt miners, and Mother Nature, and beats them all. But guilt isn’t so easy to defeat. A lost love isn’t easy to forget. His only real friend is a disenchanted, wise-cracking priest who wonders what torments his friend but doesn’t know how to help.
Emma Rogers is a survivor, too. But 14 years with a drunken, self-serving gambler have worn her hopes away. When she arrives in Chigger-Be-Gone with a lame horse, a broken wagon, and two starving children, she has none left. The first storm of the winter threatens, and her gambler lies dead a half-day’s travel back with an arrow in his chest. The village priest wants to help, but frontier towns exist on the edge. Where do you find charity when survival itself is in question?
Stalking Hawk rides and raids for the honor of the Jicarilla Apache, killing the whites who have taken his people’s lands and their way of life. The elders reminisce about the days of their fathers and grandfathers, but they cannot see the future. They counsel caution and making an accord with the white enemy. The young brave rejects this path, and he and his friends return to the path of their ancestors, believing in this way they will lead their people back to greatness.
The fates of these and more will cross in the mountains of Colorado, and their futures will change forever.
Change comes at a price, sometimes a very high price.

AOTEAROA: TIDES OF HEAVEN
The Night Fishermen
ISBN: 978-0-473-22062-4 (Kindle)
This is a beautifully woven epic of changing, violent times seen through the eyes of the hirama – the night fishermen – and their warrior tribe, the Toa people of Kawhia Harbour and Kapiti Island. Set in the early years of 19th century Aotearoa (New Zealand), this story cleverly pulls together a great variety of historical strands to create a deep and hauntingly spiritual tale.
Read it carefully, for what you will probably think is fiction, may be fact. What you swear is fact, is probably fiction. It is extremely hard to fathom which is which. It is, however, much more… you are quickly, and magically, drawn into this different world of courage, spirituality and wizardry, and that other ‘real’ dimension is complex, amazing and healing.
A gift of the ancestors, this spell-binding novel is an opening of the three sacred baskets of knowledge of the creator god Io, the return of one’s soul to the true history and spirit of the islands of the Double Sea. Somewhere in here is your story…

Since the 16th century, the Russians have had a secret weapon, an elite military brigade which strikes terror in the hearts of its enemies each time the moon is full. As the modern war in the Middle East continues to draw world criticism, American intelligence officer Lucy MacDonald and her aide, Captain David Armstrong, are sent to Moscow to engage Soviet assistance in wresting nuclear weapons from Islamic fundamentalists.
Lucy's forbidden attraction to Dmitri Volkov, charismatic leader of the Tsar's brigade, challenges her modern sensibilities against a backdrop of double-dealing terrorists, chauvinistic superiors, and a media that's literally out for blood. Compounding the unexplained presence of supernatural forces interfering with Allied maneuvers at the Pakistan borders is the legend that the brigade answers only to the man they recognize as their Tsar.
Lucy's endeavors to uncover the truth regarding the 1918 survival - and subsequent birth - of an unacknowledged Romanov heir put her in jeopardy at the hands of the brooding officer with whom she feels an inexplicable bond.
