The long awaited finale to the Pirates of Perz has been released! These are Not the Stones You’re Looking For (Pirates of Perz #3) is just over 103,000+ words and wraps up the story of Captain Flinn and his quest to pilfer magical items from the magical kingdom of Lentari. Will Steve finally be able to beat Captain Flinn, or will the surly pirate finally get the advantage over everyone’s favorite Fire Thrower? Pick up your copy today!
For your convenience, I’ve included some links on where the book is available. For whatever reason, the Barnes & Noble listing doesn’t have the cover yet. Will have to check into it if it doesn’t show up shortly. 🙂
I can also tell you that I’ve already started the next book. This time, it’s back to Pomme Valley to see what Zack and the gang have been up to after solving his late wife’s murder in Arizona. If I’m not mistaken, Jillian has just purchased one of PV’s historic houses, and everyone seems to think it’s haunted. Case of the Highland House Haunting (Corgi Case Files #7) should be ready for release by the end of next month. The plan is to finish the book before my wife & I head out of country to celebrate our 20th anniversary. How, you may ask? We’re going on a 2 week European cruise. To say that we’re stoked would be a serious understatement. 🙂
Also in the works is my 6th audiobook, which will be Case of the Muffin Murders (Corgi Case Files #5). Once again, the very talented Bob Johnson is narrating it for me, and it should probably be done within the next month. I’ll let you know when it’s ready!
For those of you who have been wondering whether or not I’ve fallen off the face of the earth, I can safely say that I haven’t. 🙂 Been hard at work wrapping up the final title in the Pirates of Perz trilogy: These are Not the Stones You’re Looking For (PoP #3). And after that? I can tell you I already have the next novel in my cozy mystery series planned out and is currently ready to write: Case of the Highland House Haunting (CCF #7).
After that, I’m going to try my hand at another fantasy novel, but this one will be something brand new, meaning it won’t be set in Lentari. What is it, you may ask? The only thing I’ll tell you is that it will have plenty of dragons, riders, magic, and a helluva lot of humor! With that being said, I’ve been pondering what to name the world, and am open to suggestions. Feel free to leave a comment on this post if you have any ideas you’d like to share. If I end up using your suggestion, or basing a name off of your suggestion, I’ll most assuredly give you credit.
The final novel I’m going to try and squeeze out by the end of the year will happen over NaNoWriMo, and it will be another CCF story. That’ll make #8 in the series. I’ve got several more titles planned out, so it should be ready (fingers crossed!) to be released by the end of the year.
That’s it for now! It’s back to Lentari for me. Those pirates haven’t been having a good time lately, and the final showdown is just around the corner!
The next installment of the Corgi Case Files mystery series has just appeared on Amazon’s shelves! Case of the Chatty Roadrunner (Corgi Case Files #6) will see Zack, Jillian, Vance, along with Sherlock and Watson, travel to Phoenix, Arizona, to look into the death of Zack’s late wife, Samantha. Was it an accident, like everyone thought? Or… could it be murder?
Pick up your copy to find out! I’ll post links to the stores as they go live.
For fans of fantasy, the next project I’m working on will be to finish up the Pirates of Perz trilogy. I apologize for the delay. We’ll be catching up with Sarah and Steve in a month or two!
I’m proud to announce Bob Johnson, audio narrator for the first three Corgi Case Files audiobooks has agreed to start work on Case of the Pilfered Pooches (CCF#4). We’re predicting the project should be completed by mid April. Damn, he’s catching up! Which reminds me…
CCF6 is almost done. Should be finished by today or tomorrow. Posse members, are you ready to read?
Next up, it’s high time to wrap up the Pirates of Perz trilogy, and then it’ll be off to the lawless land of Cazel and Doiron’s quest to discover his true heritage. Not sure what I’m talking about? Ask me for a copy of Senthyd. It’s a short story which introduces the rare & unique hybrid creatures just trying to survive. Unless you’re the most rare of all senthyds, like our hero, Doiron. Stay tuned! It’ll be my first ever full-length dark fantasy story!
I hope everyone had a great summer! As for me, it was a blast, only the weather here in Arizona is still incredibly warm. Summer just doesn’t wanna let go of us.
I went to put one of my paperbacks up for a giveaway on Goodreads, which I’ve done countless times, only they are now asking an outrageous amount to do it. Me, being the cheapskate that I am, refused, so no more Goodreads giveaways for me. Therefore, I’ll host my own giveaway, here on my blog. So, if you’re interested in getting a free paperback copy of any of the books that I have currently released, make sure you’re signed up for the newsletter AND leave a comment below (specify which title you’d like). I’ll choose a name at random and, regardless where you’re at, I’ll send the book to you.
Good luck to all who enter!

I thought I’d let you know I’ve got two new titles available at Amazon. The first, available as a pre-order for the end of June, is for you fantasy lovers: The Hammer is Strong With This One (Pirates of Perz #2). It’s the second novel in the Pirates of Perz trilogy and continues on with the pirates venturing below ground to try to swipe a very special hammer from the dwarves.
For mystery fans, the latest excursion to beautiful Pomme Valley, Oregon, is now available at all major retailers: Case of the Muffin Murders (Corgi Case Files #5). Someone has targeted Taylor Adams, PV baker extraordinaire, and is trying to frame her for murder. Good friend Jillian Cooper asks Zack and the corgis to investigate!
Also in the land of PV, I am quite pleased to announce my very first audiobook, Case of the One-Eyed Tiger (Corgi Case Files #1), has been completed and will be available on Audible.com shortly! I’m also excited to tell you that my 2nd audiobook, Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1), is under production, and Case of the Fleet-Footed Mummy (Corgi Case Files #2), is about ready to go under production, too! I hope you all are able to check it out!
I hope you’re having a fantastic spring! Happy reading!
