"A spine-tingling, chilling ride into the mind of a demented killer." ~Rave Reviews

Teri Carmichael is hailed as one of New York's most-promising new artists. But her marriage to a compulsive gambler is wrecking her life. When her scumbag husband refuses to give her a divorce, she thinks her life can't get any worse, until the police find his brutally murdered corpse in an empty apartment.

Further complicating Teri's world is her new photographer, Drew Marshall. He's starting over from a disastrous downward spiral of his own, and nothing gives Drew hope as much as being with Teri.

Teri and Drew's powerful chemistry could drive them to the happy ending they've always wanted--if it wasn't for the web of evil being spun around them. A hardened detective is convinced Teri killed her husband, and Selena, a young woman who loves Teri like a mother, is willing to kill to protect Teri from harm . . . in fact, she already has.

". . . unleashes a riveting, intense, and chilling tale of justice denied, vengeance, and murder." ~Rave Reviews

Holly Kaufman's heart is closed to love. She never shared what those frat brothers had done to her two decades ago, but when she’s asked to join a support group, she hesitates only briefly.

Now mature women, the former coeds have only one item on their agenda--revenge. Holly is chosen to feed information to a reporter without implicating the group. David Wells is the best man for the job.

David smells a prize-winning story, and Holly Kaufman looks like his best bet for unearthing the truth. Although seduction is his preferred tool for getting information from a woman, he's unprepared for being the one seduced.

But, when the former frat boys start turning up dead, Holly wants out. Unfortunately, she's now a prime suspect and her only hope of proving innocence lies with the man who's awakening her passion but cannot be trusted.

Publisher's Note: This story contains graphic sexual scenes and sexual abuse. It's intended for mature readers and may not be appropriate for individuals with a sensitive nature. Previously titled: Pretty Maids in a Row.

When one woman survives the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers, she decides to fake her death and start a new life across the country, until her past—and a mysterious figure—comes back to haunt her.

On the surface, Neal Westman is a charming and successful architect, a man most women would swoon over. But as his fiancée, Damita, prepares for their wedding, she discovers that Neal isn’t the man she thought he was. One night, he beats her so badly she can barely walk. Somehow, Damita manages to show up for work the next day in the World Trade Center—on September 11, 2001. With the help of a man who appears, seemingly out of nowhere, she runs from the building as quickly as possible. When they both make it to safety, she turns to find he is gone, but hears the words, don’t worry, I’ll meet you on the other side.

When Damita gets home, still covered in dust, she’s met by a drunken Neal—and he wants to finish what he started. Instead, Damita defends herself, leaving Neal senseless on the ground. Suddenly, a brilliant idea strikes: She could run far, far away, and no one will ever know she’s still alive—or what happened to her husband, especially if she becomes a suspect for murder…

Damita settles into a new life in Seattle without contacting anyone, but it seems that her past isn’t completely wiped away. Anonymous, threatening notes mysteriously appear on her doorstep, and Damita becomes convinced she’s going to prison—or worse, when she finds out who’s behind it all.
Suzanne Morse's body lay almost lifeless on the bathroom floor, the cold tile soothing her battered face. She struggled to her feet, blood oozing from her nose and lips. It was to be the final spousal beating this young woman would endure as she reached into her soul for courage, independence and dignity. Cradled in the comfort of a European Jewish upbringing, Suzanne knew not of such eventual abuse. Was she being punished for some hidden wrongdoing? Now alone with young children, she would embark on a long journey to secure a place for herself in a demanding society. Finding the inner strength of her womanhood, Suzanne would become a successful entrepreneur, realizing the need to bring control into her life. Suzanne develops a prestigious chain of health and beauty spas. Her artistic flair is realized as a form of self-expression and leads her and her partner, Nancy, into an intriguing element of mystery, romance, crime and murder. She is also able to re-discover the only true love of her life from the days of her youth. Together, Suzanne and Stephen try to create their own space in a tumultuous world so that as adults they can experience the love of their lifetime. Author Bio: As an imaginative only child, I began writing at an early age, often skipping high school classes to attend journalism and creative writing classes with my friend, at his school, Boston University. Self-raising four daughters while establishing a career as an electrologist /esthetician, I owned a large day spa for 32 years. I have written murder/mystery/comedy dinner theater shows that ran for eight years in the Greater Boston area. I taught art to youngsters and adults and visited art museums throughout the world. On one of my trips I was fortunate to visit the Huntington in San Marino, California. I was mesmerized when I saw all the beautiful first editions and numerous art collections. This visit gave me the inspiration to write "Beyond Murder." Keywords - Fiction, Abuse, Mystery, Adventure, Thriller, Romance
