1975. A 15-year-old young woman. A small, dusty town. A family that worships the great American author Edgar Allan Poe, and carries his surname.
Poe's Mother is a startling new novel of dark family secrets, the lure of the supernatural, the claustrophobic isolation of a dying town and a cautionary tale of the power of words.
This is the story of Sissy Baxter and her strange relationship with Edgar and Madeline Poe - two people who claim they love her. What Sissy discovers will change her life forever, and love will never be the same.
(This book is for mature readers.)
The chase is on! Written as a sequel to Mary Shelley's masterpiece of 200 years ago, Frankenstein's Daemon captures the spirit of the original in this page-turning tale. Capt. Robert Walton pursues the monster, vowing to carry out the revenge ordered by Victor Frankenstein. Walton's quest leads him to Ernest Frankenstein, Victor's brother, and his beautiful wife, Olivia. Mad ambition, unfettered science and love betrayed lead to a shattering climax on the streets of London.
From the underbelly of Boston's officially sanctioned red-light district--The Combat Zone--to a neo-Nazi compound in the secluded mountains of New Hampshire, gay cross-dressing sleuth Cody Harper hunts a murderer. Cody is a man who enjoys wielding a whip as much as slipping into a silk chemise. When unrequited love interest Stephen Cross tells Cody about the death threats he's received, Cody resorts to all the tricks in his make-up bag, including his drag persona, Desdemona, to protect his friend. A pious presidential candidate and members of an underground group called "Aryan America" stand in Cody's way in this thrill ride of suspense and mystery.
Rodney Jessup, a pious presidential candidate, hires detective Cody Harper to find out who is threatening him and his family. When Cody arrives at Jessup’s palatial estate in Virginia, he meets Tony Vargas, Jessup’s bodyguard, and the two realize an immediate connection. As Cody and Tony’s attraction heats up, the killer circles closer to Jessup. With the help of Desdemona, Cody’s gorgeous cross-dressing persona, Cody intends to close this case quickly and throw the perpetrator in prison. But can things really be that easy? Or is there much more to this case than meets the beautifully mascaraed eye?
