Samantha Mishra opens her eyes and discovers she's alone and injured in the thick of a jungle. She has no idea where she is, or what happened to the plane taking her and the rest of the Drake Rosemont fencing team across the Pacific for a tournament. Once Sam connects with her best friend, Mel, and they find the others, they set up shelter and hope for rescue. But as the days pass, the teens realize they're on their own, stranded on an island with a mysterious presence that taunts and threatens them. Soon Sam and her companions discover they need to survive more than the jungle... they need to survive each other.

This taut novel, with a setting evocative of Lord of the Flies, is by turns cinematic and intimate, and always thought-provoking.

Available on Amazon

Mastering the Money Mindset

Mastering the Money Mindset is the first, but most important, step on the Road to Riches.

Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Rockefeller, Warren Buffett - what do they have in common? They mastered the money mindset and had money work for them...instead of the other way around.

No-one can embark on that journey to real riches without first understanding the importance of our view of money, how we interact with it, how we attract it or repel it. Do we have a healthy respect for money? Do we desire it? Or do we act as if we are not worthy enough to possess it? Do we consider wealth as wicked, or do we value the power that such resources can provide, the power to make a difference in our lives and the lives of so many others.

Without the proper money mindset you will never possess the level of wealth that is your potential. The purpose of this succinct and salient synthesis of life-altering lessons is to coach you, to open your mind to the idea of possessing real riches, to drive you to desire it so badly that it is not a matter of if but when. This concise and critical work is designed to stimulate your mind with money-making tips and ideas to get you started on that road to riches, to train you to maximize your full money potential.

This money mindset is the foundation for the art of making money. This work will provide you with the firm footing required to make this happen. It will teach you how to desire it, pursue it, act on that driving desire, and achieve it. It will be that catalyst which will launch your money creativity and creation.

Read, re-read this guide, then run, don't walk, down your ROAD to RICHES.

All the Way Home

Juliette has been walking through life broken and hurting for years, always relying on her friend Tavish to be there for her when she needs him. As soon as he met her, Tavish knew he would do anything for her, that is, until he enlists in the infantry and leaves town, and possibly Juliette, for good.

Soon the events of 9/11 change everything, and an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan prompts him to reconnect with Juliette 5 years later. Despite the time apart she soon finds herself leaning on him again as their reunion leads to something much more. That’s when tragedy strikes during his deployment, and Tavish comes home shattered. Is Juliette strong enough to offer him the support he has always given her? Will it be enough for both of them to find their way home?

All The Way Home is a Canadian-based military love story, the first in the Way Home series but is a stand-alone with its own HEA.

This book is intended for audiences 18+. For those dealing with combat related PTSD, some scenes may be triggering.


The Fight For Home (Book 2) coming January 11

From their first night together, nothing about Mark and Megan Lawson’s lives has been normal. Or easy. Finding a way to keep a marriage strong with kids, jobs and mortgages is hard on the best of days. Add the military in, the kind of tragedy that makes you forget to breathe, and a lot of hurt that just keeps piling on and it doesn’t look like their love will survive the storm.

Now, though, Megan is sick. The big kind of sick. When Mark finds himself standing by her bedside, he has a choice to make. It’s time for the two of them to figure out where it all went wrong, and decide if it’s worth the fight to hold on to each other

The Fight For Home is the second book in the Way Home Series. It can be read as a stand-alone novel, but to see more of these characters and their beginnings you might want to start with book one, All The Way Home.

This book is recommended for readers 18+ for adult language, content and topics.
