                                      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?

 A compilation of the first three books of the Xoe Meyers Series. 


Xoe: Xoe Meyers had a normal life. So she was stuck going to high school, and she only had a few friends to call her own. She liked her normal life. Things were about to change though, because there's a new guy in her small town, and he is anything but normal. Before Xoe can say, "Werewolf," her best friend's life is in peril, and Xoe's world is turned upside-down. Then, of course, there's Jason. Xoe doesn't trust him as far as she can throw him, and given that he's a vampire, she'd have to be able to catch him first.

Accidental Ashes: Last year Xoe's life was turned upside-down. Things haven't improved much. With the lives of her friends at risk, Xoe forgets to worry about another life...her own. With the reappearance of a face from her very distant past, and a random string of abductions to deal with, Xoe has to fight to keep things together. Even if 'together' is a far cry, ahem...howl, from the norm.

Broken Beasts: Xoe had hoped that after the events of the last few months, things would finally slow down. No such luck. The werewolves are out for blood, and so are the vampires apparently. Let's not even get started on the problems her own friends are causing. Regardless of the danger, Xoe and her rag-tag entourage are in Moab, facing the werewolf coalition. Their final ruling will change Xoe's fate, and the fate of her friends forever. Here's hoping that's a good thing.

Who doesn’t want to change in his or her life? Everybody wants some change in his life. In fact, it is the law of our nature. Change is the natural order. But many of us want too many changes in life. Is it really possible? No! And those who want too many changes in their lives; they always face many hardships and hurdles, and always remain unhappy.

 

Always remember that-one story may change your life. One idea may change your life. One thought may change your life. One incident may change your life. One event may change your life.

 

In life anything can happen and possible that you wouldn’t expect. Life is full of surprises and uncertainties. So, it is always better for you to prepare for the future event or incident; because anything can happen in life. It is well said that a wise man always learns from the mistakes of others. We always learn from our experiences. But question arises, that how many times we try our experiment with life to learn something. It is never possible. We couldn’t sacrifice our life every time, because our life is not a screening movie or drama. We couldn’t experiment with our real life. So it is a smart act for us to learn from the mistakes of others and mend our life before anything happen. But, it is sorry to say, that there are many of us who enjoyed while experimenting with their lives. And the end result is their lamenting and regretful lives.

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?

Book 6
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 5
THE FINAL SCREAM IS HOLLOW

When a dog appears with a severed hand in his mouth, local law enforcement searches the George Washington Jefferson National Forest for the rest of the body.  What they find is so shocking that the local sheriff calls in the FBI immediately.    HIS BURIAL GROUND HAS BEEN DESECRATED

Forensic Psychiatrist Wyatt Thomas has fled to the sleepy mountain town of Crescent Hollow to finish his latest book involving serial killers and the insanity plea.  As the foremost authority on the subject, he’s often asked to assist the FBI with their most difficult cases. He instructed his secretary to hold his calls as well as cut himself off from all forms of news.  All his attempts to hide fail miserably when he hears that multiple dismembered corpses were discovered in the vicinity. As more victims are unearthed there appears to be three separate MOs.  The mystery is more than he can resist.

HIS ANGER IS UNSURPASSED

Special Agents Annie Thomas and Blake Hayashi of the FBI’s Behavioral Analyst Unit have been sent to a small town in Virginia to aid local law enforcement with a disturbing case.  Either a deranged murderer has been active in the area for roughly fifty years, or three separate killers are using the same dumping ground.

SOMEONE MUST PAY

Homicide Detective Merrybell Montgomery left her career with the Philadelphia Police Department to move her ailing husband to his hometown. Now that he’s passed, she’s lost. Although romance was the last thing on her mind, she finds herself falling in love with the visiting author, Wyatt Thomas. Then her dream turns into a nightmare when she learns a deranged killer is stalking her.

NO ONE IS SAFE

That’s when Wyatt teams up with his sister, Annie, and her partner, Blake, to stop the most devious killer of his career, or die trying.

 

Authors Note: The main character in this book delves into the disturbed minds of some of the most horrendous killers of all time. If you are sensitive or have a problem turning off the emotional side of your brain to view these studies in a clinical fashion, please skip the parts written in italics. I promise it won’t interfere with your enjoyment of the story. Thank you.

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.

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.
