Hot Wings Rug Burns Book Excerpt:

Set amidst the 1990s in the Twin Cities - love, basketball, sex, David Lee Roth, dating, Snoopy, bar hopping, Camel Lights, and Evonne Goolagong collide to concoct this unique tale. Of course, these aren’t your typical ingredients for a comedy, but this isn’t your typical comedy. This is the story of a jackass and how he becomes a real man. Life is a clever cocktail of interesting moments, sinister monotony, and sublime mistakes. Jamie Tembreaux, a struggling playwright in Minneapolis knows that all too well. Unlike the famous Peter Pan Syndrome, Jamie suffers from a different Disney Disorder altogether, The Pinocchio Syndrome, which can only be disclosed within the confines of this tale. Forcing Jamie to realize he’s twenty-five and has never really been in love. Luckily for Jamie, he does have the support of his friends, but “Trick” Dunbar and Andrew Case are just as confused with their lives as Jamie seemingly is with his own. Torn between the fetching artist he’s just met and an old flame who happens to be Andrew’s little sister, Jamie navigates the dangerous waters of bachelorhood without a clue. With the help of another friend from college Jo Fabre, Jamie searches for answers at the only place that makes sense to him - his childhood home. There, Jamie discovers where his life diverted from its natural path to an entirely new one. Jamie explores his past choices and their consequences like never before. He deflects his personal ordeals through the use of humor, thereby divulging uncompromising insight into the male psyche. The novel is a dizzying leap into the shallow end of the pool of life. And somewhere amidst the infinite spectrum between a Blue Fairy and a Great Whale lies a broken-hearted hero. A coming-of-age tale with a twist and a comedy with plenty of edge. HOT WINGS & RUG BURNS is a wild look at one of the scariest challenges facing young adults of any generation – the opposite sex.

The dead came forward to tell her secrets nobody knew… IT WAS MURDER. Inspired by real-life true stories, this is not your typical protagonist sheriff/detective/tenacious journalist unravels the mystery book—it’s world-renowned psychic medium Katharine Branham communicating with wronged spirits of murder victims to unearth the terrible truths buried deep in their graves. “They knew about my work, but Dr. O’Brien seemed more interested in the ghost and spirit stories I had shared from time to time.” “The table filled up with other medical staff members…Dr. O’Brien leaned over to ask, “Have you worked on anything interesting lately?” “I glanced down at my spinach wrap and said, “I woke up at 4am to find a nurse standing next to the bed”. “Dr. O’Brien knew I had anxiety in the past from spirits making me feel overwhelmed at times. He knew some of the scary and incredibly sad things I had seen too. He was not someone I needed to hide anything from so I said, ‘I was nervous since I knew she was a murderer’”. A FIRST OF ITS KIND! It Was Murder is True Crime Mystery plus Thriller/Suspense with a hefty dash of Paranormal. Psychic Katharine uncovers dark secrets that have been tucked away through years of lies and deception by family members, friends, lovers, and cold-blooded killers. “Death is one thing, murder another, but add in a little supernatural and a few angels… now you have a real spiritual lesson!”

The Ashtabula Hat Trick Book Excerpt:

The people of Queenstown, Ohio, don’t take kindly to strangers. But they have no choice in the matter after a man’s body is found in a local park, pants unzipped and stabbed through the heart—and a second man’s body turns up days later, his head bashed in. Local law enforcement needs help with the town’s first-ever murder investigation. Private investigator Milan Jacovich (pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovitch) tags along when his main squeeze, Cleveland homicide detective Tobe Blaine, is dispatched to rural Ashtabula County to handle the case. Word travels fast in the small town, and the mixed-race couple receives a cold welcome. The motel manager doesn’t like their looks, the coroner conveniently forgets key details, and patrons at the local watering hole flaunt their disrespect for Tobe’s out-of-town badge and her skin color. Milan enlists his young assistant, Kevin “K.O.” O’Bannion, to glean information from the town’s teens, who tell tales of their parents’ fervent devotion to their local pastor, an outspoken bigot. Did homophobia factor in the murders? Looming over the case is nearby Conneaut prison—privately run, overcrowded, and rumored to employ some questionable methods (as well as many local residents). Inside its walls, a powerful convict known as “The Prophet” just might have the information Tobe and Milan need to solve the case—if they can get him to talk. Queenstown might only be an hour’s drive from Cleveland, but Milan, Tobe, and K.O. find themselves strangers in a strange land. They also soon find themselves neck-deep in serious trouble.

Johnny Briggs Poor Johnny Book Excerpt:

In an Edwardian era of cricketing giants like WG Grace and Archie MacLaren, little Johnny Briggs (1862-1902) stood tall despite his diminutive stature. He was one of Lancashire and England’s most popular and entertaining cricketers in an age when cricket was beginning to capture the public imagination with huge crowds turning out for the big games in the big cities of England and Australia. Briggs toured Australia on six occasions when travelling Down Under meant an arduous sea voyage and, in all, took part in eleven Ashes series. To this day, he remains the only cricketer to take a hat-trick and score a century in cricket’s oldest and most combative series of matches. A true working-class hero, Briggs played to the gallery, but was nevertheless a hard-working professional who took on a prodigious workload. He began as a match-winning batsman and became a world-class bowler and was always a dynamic fielder in his favourite position in the covers. But he suffered intermittently from epilepsy and the second of two major attacks suffered at a Leeds music hall on the evening of the first day of the Headingley Test against Australia finally cut short his life at the age of 39. He died in a lunatic asylum in a tragic and untimely end to a marvellous career.
