A pregnant manatee is rare at any zoo, and a first for the Grove City Zoo in Ohio. Ankh is a delight to zoo patrons, a concern to its staff, and the unintentional victim of two con men. She has no idea how many human relationships, problems, and dreams tangle around her. 

Jerry is a young developmentally disabled man who happily follows Ankh's pregnancy on the zoo's webcam. He has a shy crush on Janelle, a pretty college student who volunteers for his group home’s outings to the zoo. Jerry's Aunt Vera also loves nature and runs an environmental retreat center. But all is not well, with Vera or the center. The center needs money and is under investigation as a cult. 

Amid their college studies, Janelle and her friend Cecily try to help. Instead, Janelle re-awakens an old obsession in Vera when an innocent tarot reading hints at how the center might be saved. Two bumbling con men are attempting to sabotage the region’s electrical grid as part of a lucrative scheme. But Jerry accidentally gets in their way and becomes their captive. 

When the con men surprisingly succeed in bringing the grid down, it spells danger for Ankh, her unborn pup, and the many people tied to them both. With investigations of their own, Cecily and Janelle try to untangle it all to find Jerry, save a manatee’s life, and rescue Vera from herself. 
Tangled Ties to a Manatee is a humorous crime thriller with environmental themes. The novel is revealed through multiple points of view and centers around college-aged characters.

This intensely romantic yet realistic novel spans two generations and the unimaginable gulf between the Second World War and the present. When Englishman Richard Barker suffers a devastating loss he learns to come to terms with his grief. He is helped by two beautiful women, newly discovered quiet and smouldering American, Sorrel and the tempestuous and wilful, Miranda an old flame from long ago. While Richard is battling with his feelings, by chance he enters into the dark, often surreal world of his dead father’s past life spent during the Second World War in a number of prisoner of war camps. It is Sorrel's Grandfather, an American Air Force pilot, who contacts Richard with some intriguing news which helps Richard to his senses. 

Richard lives in a world that is as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. His story and that of his father are crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance and harrowing escapes all weaved within a story that captures the imagination and keeps the reader guessing until the very end.

When accountant Jack Heart loses his job at Major Meat, Inc., he decides to pursue a lifelong dream: hiking the Appalachian Trail. The experienced, calculating Jack is puzzled to realize his time in the woods has isolated him, and that something uncontrollable is taking over the world. Eating tainted meat from the ubiquitous Major Meat, Americans are turning into flesh-hungry corpses. Despite his enigmatic independence and difficult circumstances, Jack finds himself drawn to a local woman, Audrey. Unable to resist Audrey’s quiet beauty and level-headedness, Jack brings her with him as he tries to navigate out of a quarantined mountain town—but she’s already infected.

For all his stoicism and outdoor knowledge, Heart is a man tormented by a sad, parentless past and a seemingly sad and lonely future. When the couple embarks on a daring, suicidal mission to save innocent locals from vigilantes, Jack Heart descends into a dark, violent place in order to lead Audrey to safety. Tense, fast-paced, and bloody, Kill Town, USA is a tale that will chill you, possess you, and leave you wanting more.
