Yes I Can Write Something Beside Murder and Mayhem….


When Fates Collide and When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

For those of you who have asked me two questions, Why don’t you write comedy and why don’t you write about bounty hunting since you are one. Well, the answer is here. I have don’t both with help from a fellow author and wonderful friend Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc.

We started a series last year titled When Fates Collide. The story line involves two of the most unlikely characters to ever slam into each other. Meet Alex Morgan- a no nonsense Bounty Hunter who has to constantly prove her ability in this male dominated world. She has no sense of humor- she only sees the jumper and her pick up. She has seen it all and heard it all. She always gets her man no matter what she has to do. Until she meets Hope Harrington.

Hope Harrington the name of Alex’s latest jumper master of disguises- can be anyone at anytime and uses aliases like a second skin. Alex finds Hope in a goth bar in Ybor City, slams her jumper to the ground and after handcuffing this person finds out that she is not who she was supposed to by.

Hope Harrington- the real one is a mousy secretary who finds her inner self trolling the goth bars in ybor city. Her life has been boring to say the least- She has a dead end job, no social life, and lives alone. She hates confrontation and she really hates Alex who has just humiliated her in front of her few friends. But she hates the person who stole her name even more. Against Alex’s better judgement she allows Hope to help her catch her jumper. The chase takes them from Ybor City to Key West in the middle of Fantasy Fest. The jumper changing faces like clothes.
Much to Alex’s chagrin Hope proves that she can hold her own and comes up with creative and unique ways of catching the jumper. Along the way the two unlikely pair encounter some of the people who have helped Alex on other jobs and Hope is not overly excited about them.

The second in the series which has just been released is titled When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound. Alex is on her way to New Orleans for a fun filled two weeks of Mardi Gras fun when she gets the call. A jumper has headed from Tampa to New Orleans. Her name is Marie Laveau. Alex is not happy. Hope is even less happy. She was looking forward to visiting a city she has never been to before. She is even less happy when she meets Alex’s contacts in the Big Easy.
The dialogue is written in fist person by both of the main characters. The back and forth will keep the reader laughing until they either cry or wet their pants. Alex with her sarcastic wit- Hope with her total disbelief that someone as smart as Alex is involved with the shady characters in her life. Hope teaches Alex and Alex along with her misfits teach Hope and in the end they get their man or woman.

Part of the dialogue borders on the vein of a Abbott and Costello routine. Throw in a few oddball characters and you have the makings of a comedy to beat all comedies. These two books are a must read simply for a belly laugh. Right now until Christmas both books are being offered on my online bookstore for 20.00 check out http://thebookattic.ecrater.com
