I Spy with My Little Eye: A Nursery Rhyme Suspense short story

La Plume Press

 When what you don't know will kill you.

A dead Santa throws Marlow and Sage together in this Nursery Rhyme Suspense short story. 

The target isn't Santa, it's Sage, and she and Marlow aren't the only ones who want information from the would-be assassin. Temporarily recruited by CISUE, Central Intelligence for Special or Unusual Events, Marlow and Sage are tasked with finding out the identity of CISUE's main nemesis, and while they're at it, smoke out the company mole. 

Marlow and Sage surprise themselves by what appears to be a latent skill set, perfect for taking down bad guys. They'd pat each other on the back later if only they hadn't agreed to have their memories wiped. 

Who are you again?

The complete Perception Series: PERCEPTION, VOLITION and CONTRITION. plus BONUS short story prequel AMBITION. 

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans. 
Her brother Liam is missing. 

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically. 

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her. 

PERCEPTION is a ( SF/mystery/romance) Young Adult novel that takes place in the not too distant future in a world changed by climate extremes, natural disasters and impending wars, and where scientific breakthroughs cause class divisions—both financially and philosophically. It explores the clash between faith and science and how differences can separate us as enemies or rally us together. And in some cases, even in the midst of betrayal and personal crisis, there’s room to fall in love.
