A haunting scream floated on the breath of a hot summer breeze. The mournful cry echoed throughout the bayou while the willowy limbs of the Spanish moss swayed in its wake.

HE PROWLS THE CITY

Clarice Bordelon is a journalist at The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans. When her sister goes missing no one will listen - not even her husband. An insensitive remark by a policeman prompts her to research missing women of a certain socioeconomic status and color. The results are staggering. The deeper she digs the more she realizes her city has a huge problem and it’s not new, it goes back years.

BY COVER OF NIGHT

Armed with this new information she tries in vain to convince the authorities to launch a search. Worse, she’s labeled a conspiracy theorist. Clarice fights back the only way she knows how, by writing a series of articles to share her newfound knowledge. In doing so she attracts the attention of the one person she’d warned the city about. Now that his work’s been revealed the killer is eager to share more with the author herself.

DON’T GET CAUGHT

Homicide Detective Jesse Thomas is in New Orleans to attend a conference. He’s brought Meagan McInnis with the intention of turning a business trip into a romantic holiday. Then fate intervenes. They meet up with his old friend, Andre Bordelon and his wife, Clarice. The women hit it off instantly and make plans for multiple excursions.

OUT ON THE STREET

The following evening Thomas runs into a man he’d met in San Diego during the SANDMAN investigation, Homicide Detective Beau Chase who’s recently moved back to NOLA. He’s landed a case involving a serial killer and asks Thomas to lend a hand.

IN THE DARK

Clarice shares with Meagan a grisly experience that happened recently. Then their private swamp tour takes a horrifying turn into a hellish nightmare. Not believing in coincidence, Detective Chase delves into the journalist’s past and finds she’s all but drawn a map for a psychotic lunatic to follow her every move.

ALONE

Now Thomas and Chase must race against time to catch the elusive killer who’s hidden in the shadows for decades.

Book 1

BEWARE THE SANDMAN-HE’LL PUT YOU TO SLEEP. . .FOREVER

A serial killer on the loose, a woman with a psychotic stalker and a homicide detective who must find the connection before it’s too late.

He collects women. Imprisons them. Plays with them. Tortures them. He gathers souvenirs. His trophies are many.

LOCK YOUR DOORS AND PULL THE SHADES

Meagan McInnis is being psychologically tormented. Her dog has become restless. He barks incessantly, but when peering out into the darkened abyss, there’s no one in sight. The image of a pair of eyes staring back from the pitch haunts her. The phone startles her awake, only dead air answers her plea. Until the night she stumbles upon a grisly display in her garden.

THE CALLER IS SILENT NO MORE

Seasoned, Homicide Detective, J.J. Thomas, is working his most horrific case to date, and he’s seen some pretty gruesome things in his time. The monster he’s hunting ranks up there with Ed Gein. He wouldn’t be surprised to find lampshades made out of human skin in the psycho’s living room.

THEY CALL HIM THE SANDMAN

With no one else available, Thomas is called out to a crime scene in the wee hours of the morning. He’s told to pass the case off as soon as possible, so he can focus on his own investigation. But that’s before he realizes the ghastly exhibit and his case are linked.  Better yet, that Meagan McInnis, is the key to discovering the Sandman’s true identity.

SWEET DREAMS

With his department grossly understaffed, only he and his partner, Shadowhawk, can see to Meagan’s safety. At the same time delve deep into her past to uncover just how she became the obsession of this sadistic killer before she becomes his next prize.

                                      EVIL HAS A FACE

The children of New Orleans are disappearing one by one. No bodies have been found. No ransom demands made. Poor or Rich. Black or White. Boy or Girl. The kidnapper does not play favorites.                   

                                               PRAY

Nineteen year-old Jon-Luc Boudreaux is trying to manage his gift. He’s a psychic medium. In other words, he sees the dead. They appear to him as living, breathing people. At times it’s hard to know the difference. One night he is visited by the ghost of a young girl named Charlotte. Her message is simple: Save the children.

                                           THAT EVIL

Jon-Luc has no idea how to do that. He’s not a cop. He knows nothing about finding missing kids. He tries to ignore her, but Charlotte won’t leave him alone until he promises to help. Since her visits started, he’s had some very disturbing visions. When the signs begin to point toward Voodoo, he has no choice but to find an expert.

                                          DOES NOT

Celestine Glapion is a Voodoo Priestess and a descendant of the great Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. The minute Jon-Luc walks into her family’s shop, she remembers him, but he has no memory of her. So when Mama Arelia tells her she must help with this crisis, she’s reluctant to work side-by-side with Jon-Luc. But she’ll do anything for the sake of those innocent lives.

                                           FIND YOU

Their journey takes them to the underbelly of New Orleans where dark magic lives. Jon-Luc escapes death not once, but twice, and still he pushes on. Knowing time is running out, the kidnapper speeds up the schedule. Now the children’s lives hang in the balance and only Jon-Luc holds the key to their survival. Can they rescue them in time?

NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU SCREAM

 A psychotic killer terrorizing a small mountain town sets his sights on those hunting him.             

 Special Agent Cody Thomas, from the FBI’s Violent Crimes Unit in Los Angeles, decides to take a week off in the small mountain town of Big Bear. Do a little fishing, a little hiking.

 

HE'S WATCHING

 

Deputy Jilly Reid left the Central Homicide Unit of San Bernardino and moved up the mountain to her hometown to get away from death and the devastating things people do to one another. Handing out parking tickets all day is just fine with her.

 

 

No sooner does Cody hit the town when he runs into Jilly, a girl he knew in high school. But there's no time to reminisce, she's in a hurry. An incoherent call came into dispatch. A fisherman down in Hunters Cove is carrying on about finding dead women.  A lot of them.

 

HE'S WAITING

 

Cody joins Jilly on the call. What they find doesn’t belong in the sleepy little town. An underwater graveyard. A deranged killer used the lake as a dump site. Seven mutilated bodies. Chained by their feet to cinder blocks. Fish food.  Completely unrecognizable.  The only assumption is they’re women because of their long flowing tresses waving back and forth in the current.  Their distorted faces set in a silent scream for all eternity.

 

HE'S PISSED

 

The victims had obviously been in the water for some time, so naturally Cody and Jilly think the killer is long gone. Until he begins taunting them. He’s out there watching their every move and letting them know he could take them out whenever he wants. Then women begin disappearing at an alarming rate.

 

YOU'RE DEAD

 

Now they must stop this sadistic killer or die trying.

                                 EVIL LIVES HERE

 While restoring an old estate, the darkest malevolence known to man is unleashed.  Again. An elderly woman’s murder, an unlikely serial killer, and an evil that must be stopped.

 Brandon Barnett has been given the promotion of a lifetime. There’s just one problem;  he  can’t   afford to buy a house in Southern California.  Even the apartments cost more than his current mortgage. Then a miracle occurs: a letter arrives, informing him that he’s inherited the home of his dreams. His grandmother had regaled him with stories of the summers she spent there as a child as they poured over the old photographs in her scrapbook. The place is magical. It even has a name, Seacliff Manor.

                                              BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

 It’s love at first sight for Brandon, but not so much for his wife, Alyssa. The humongous estate needs more than a little TLC to make it inhabitable, but he convinces her that they can turn it into a bed & breakfast. The money they earn will help with the upkeep.

 Alyssa Barnett can’t wait to move to San Diego. From everything she’s heard, it’s paradise on earth, it’s on the ocean and the weather is temperate year round.  She just isn’t keen on living in the monstrosity her husband has inherited, but he adores it so she’ll try to make it work.

 ALWAYS TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

The problems mount daily; the faucets turn on by themselves, the lights flicker and they have rats in the walls. Workmen disappear. Alyssa’s nights are restless. She wakes with tearstained cheeks, but no memory of why. Although they speak nightly, her husband travels for work, leaving Alyssa alone to tackle a job in which she’s clueless.  That’s why she’s thrilled when her sister comes for a visit. Her enthusiasm is short-lived as Courtney tries to convince her that the old place is haunted.

 Then a hidden room is discovered, and along with it clues to the home’s dark past are revealed. Things quickly go downhill from there.  Alyssa begins sleepwalking, waking in the most peculiar places with no idea how she got there or what she may have done. Before long, she’s asleep more than she’s awake. Courtney decides to call in a paranormal investigation team.

                                NO ONE IS SAFE

 Jane Spencer and Tim Reeves have been doing paranormal research for many years.  When Tim is almost killed, Jane calls The Thibodeux Foundation for assistance. They send Jake Spaulding (a demonologist) and Sara Crow (born with the gift of psychometry- she receives visions by holding certain items.) Together they uncover the deadly truth buried at Seacliff Manor.  But can this team banish the evil before more lives are lost?

   WHAT HE SEES WOULD SCARE YOU TO DEATH

Jon-Luc Boudreaux is in Paris hunting a serial killer. That's nothing new. Seeing the bloody victims in the way they were slain? Not new. But watching the gruesome murders through the killer’s eyes as if he’s committing them with his own hands? Now that’s something new entirely.

                            HE WILL FIND YOU

FBI Profiler, Jon-Luc Boudreaux, has a secret-he’s clairvoyant.  A psychic medium who can see, but not hear ghosts.  They communicate with him through visions he must decipher on his own. That's how he achieved the highest solve rate in the history of the FBI, a fact that did not bode well with his fellow colleagues. So after years of enduring questions, rumors, and innuendo, Jon-Luc has left the FBI.

                          WHEN YOU LEAST

While determining his next course of action, he heads to France to visit an old friend. The moment he arrives, he's asked to assist with a case. It’s Fashion Week in Paris and the grisly bodies of mutilated models are popping up all over the city.

                                   EXPECT IT

After she's blacklisted by the fashion industry in New York, Angela Henderson moves to Paris to try her luck. Designing clothes is in her blood and she'll stop at nothing to realize her dream. The last thing she counted on was becoming the target of a psychotic killer.

 Now Jon-Luc is on the hunt for the most diabolical killer he's ever encountered and Angie's next on his list. Can he stop him in time?

Book 3

EACH SCREAM COULD BE YOUR LAST

He kidnaps them. Punishes them. Kills them.Then stages them as if they’re actors in some demented play.

 Texas Ranger William Thomas is called to a gruesome crime scene where the body of a mutilated woman has been found displayed in a horrifying manner. No sooner does he catch the case when the FBI swoops in to steal it.

ONCE HE HAS YOU

Special Agent Savannah St. Germaine is working a case in Louisiana where a killer has been posing his victims in a macabre fashion. When a similar MO pops up in Texas she’s certain it's the same monster. She heads to Austin to investigate further. Her suspicions are confirmed, but the powers that be aren't willing to hand over the case. If she wants to work it she'll have to partner up with one of their own.                                         

HE WILL NEVER

Lorelei Hamilton finally conquered her numbing fear and left her abusive husband. She followed the instructions by the underground network to the letter. She ditched her car, cell phone, and everything that could identify her; drivers license, credit cards, etc. One person drove her to a checkpoint where another would pick her up and take her to the next. This is how each leg of the journey was handled.

LET YOU LEAVE

No one knew her final destination. They called it plausible deniability in case anyone was compromised. Everything was running smoothly until she got in the wrong car.  By the time she realized her mistake it was too late. She’d been abducted by a sadistic fiend who made her husband's violent outbursts look like child's play.                                     

ALIVE

Now Will and Savannah are on the hunt for the most prolific serial killer the South has ever seen. Can they catch him before he claims his next victim?
