For Those of You Who have Wondered Who My Co – Conspirator is in the When Fates Collide Series Here She is

 

Okay kiddies this is for all of you who have wondered who in the world was insane enough to co-write When Fates Collide the series with me.  You know the one- When Fates Collide, When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound and the latest release When Fates Collide Arm Candy. Well let me introduce you to her. I am proud to call her not only friend but also sister in our insane writings. We have known each other for many years when both of us were caught up in the not so nice workings of a publisher who to this day shall remain nameless. To say this publisher was a crook is an understatement. (Another story for another day) On the flip side Andrea and I met joined forces and have been sisters ever since. While she lives on the West Coast of Florida and I live on the East it is like there is no distance between us.

When we write it is like we are sitting side by side with one mind (twisted though it may be). Our characters are the same way. They act as one unit even though they are as different as daylight and dark.

Andy as I like to call her no longer writes, she has chosen to move on to other endeavors however – she is always up to the antics of Hope and Alex the characters we brought together a couple of years ago simply because we could.

Today Andy has taken the path of a yoga instructor- and it is not the typical yoga. She also is able to perform weddings of any kind – she prefers not to do religious but other than that she is up to just about anything else.

She can teach a student yoga via the internet so you don’t have to be in front of her- however if you live close by you can meet with her on Sundays when she does a group yoga session.

She is one talented lady and one that I am blessed to have in my life. She believes in the old Wise Woman ways and is not afraid to talk about it.

If you have not yet hooked up with this wonderful – beautiful creature you are missing out. But you must know this, like me she does not suffer fools lightly nor does she put up with BS- like me she knows that life is way to short. She tells it like it is if you ask you. So if you really don’t want to know don’t ask. On the flip side she is kind, funny, wicked, loyal and loving. She supports no-kill shelters for animals, and like me she thinks that for the most part animals are better company than most humans.

If you haven’t friended her – you are missing out. You won’t regret it. Like her Yoga page on facebook hook up with her on her friends page and learn how to renew your mind, body and soul through Yoga. She can teach you how!!!!!

I Do Write Something More than Just Murder and Mayhem

When Fates Collide

 

Believe it or not I do write something beside true crime and crime fiction. A fellow Florida author by the name of Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc and I put our evil little heads together and wrote what has become a series of books. The Series is titled “When Fates Collide.” which also happens to be the title of the first book.

The book is written in first person by both of us. The two main characters are Hope Harrington and Alex Morgan. Alex Morgan is a cynical, sarcastic Bounty Hunter who has had to claw and fight her way to the top of the food chain in her profession because after all it is still a “Man’s World.” In When Fates Collide she has been sent to Ybor City to pick up a jumper who has eluded her for months. He can change his disguise like most people change their underwear. He can go from male to female in the blink of an eye. This day Alex has gotten word that he is using the name Hope Harrington and he was last seen at a Goth Club in Ybor City. Alex sees him/her sitting at the bar enjoying the music and a drink. She walks up behind her “jumper” and takes him to the ground slapping cuffs on his wrists. The club noise comes to a stand still. The only problem is this person on the floor with their hands behind their back is not the jumper but yet the name is Hope Harrington.  This Hope Harrington is just a mousy secretary who is tired of just going to work, going home and going to the club once in a blue moon. Being slammed to the floor and cuffed is the most exciting- though embarrassing that has ever happened to her.

After she gets over wanting to punch out Alex she decides that since this jumper is using her name she wants to help catch him. She has a score to settle with him. An uneasy truce is formed between the two women. Alex with her sarcasm continues to bait her “new” partner as they follow their quarry to Key West which is in the middle of Fantasy Fest. A perfect place for the jumper to ply his trade of disguise. On the way Alex enlists one of her contacts to take them via boat. Hope wonders why she signed on. The chase is on, the dialogue is filled with sardonic wit on both sides and an uneasy alliance is formed as Alex finds out that underneath that mousy demeanor Hope has a soul of pure steel.

The humor in this book carries over into the second in the Series Titled Mardi Gras Bound. Alex and Hope are sent to New Orleans in the middle of Mardi Gras to pick up a very well known jumper who everyone even the locals are afraid of. Her name is Marie Laveau and she has conviced folks she is directly descended from the Queen herself. Alex once again employs unsavory characters who have helped her in the past and one is not who he appears to be. Hope in her naivete assume he is just another ignorant redneck who is in need of several bathings. Once again Hope finds out that all is not as it seems.

Hope in her youthful exuberance gets herself kidnapped and ends up in the Bayou. Alex now has to rescue have to her partner and find her jumper who is as slippery as the snakes that hang in the trees in the Bayou. The twists and turns and the characters blend a book that will keep you up at nights simply because you can’t stop turning the page.

The side splitting laughter never ends, the characters take on a life of their own and Hope and Alex should take their Abbot and Costello routine on the road. Add to that the cast of characters which join Alex and Hope on this hunt will make you wonder how in the world they ever get their jumper. From Bourbon St to the Bayou to the local Cemetery the chase continues.

Mardi Gras Bound comes with a disclaimer that we are not responsible for the soiled clothing that you the reader will experience from reading this book due to extreme laughter and the wetting of your clothes. We highly recommend that you make a trip to the bathroom before you start the book or else put on a pair of depends until you are finished reading the last page.

Both of these books can be found on amazon,amazon kindle, Lulu and Barnes and Noble Nook book. They also be found at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com

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
