“This story just keeps you captivated and I could not put it down. These books and characters crack me up!”
— Amazon Reader Review



Sheriff Billy Keene’s still learning on the job–and learning dark secrets about the colorful people in his small, odd hometown of Caulfield.

Racist vandalism (correctly spelled, which passes for a solid clue in Caulfield) pops up after more than a few golfing buddies trade in their first wives for mail-order brides.

So when one of the foreign brides is viciously attacked, Billy’s unsure: Is he investigating a hate crime? Or a crime of passion?

With his own love life in chaos – and his life-life in the cross-hairs – Billy discovers that intense passions of all kinds can push people to commit acts of heartbreaking kindness and unspeakable brutality.

Broken Heartland, the second Billy Keene book, is a menacingly suspenseful page-turner that’s both savagely funny and unflinchingly human.

“I recommend it highly.”

“The dry sense of humor for these characters is ‘to die for.’ I didn’t want it to end.”

“I LOVED the story. Looking forward to more Billy.”

(The 1st Billy Keene Book)

“…like a mashup of a Jim Thompson novel with a John Hiatt song…cunning, funny, human, and brutal, often at the exact same time.”
— Amazon Reader Review


An inexperienced sheriff bumbling his way through a kidnapping case. A lottery-winning grandmother determined to handle things in her own savage way. And the ruthless party-girl in the middle of it all.

Each will be forced to answer the painful question: How far will you go when you’re betrayed by people you thought you knew?

Sheriff Billy Keene is in way over his head. He knows it and so does everyone else in the small town of Caulfield, including his unruly deputies. So when the spoiled granddaughter of a local-lottery winner is kidnapped, everyone is telling Billy how to do his job. Or, worse, not telling him anything at all.

Arlita Hardy’s certainly not saying much and why should she? She’s got the money and the iron will to rescue her granddaughter — and punish the kidnappers — rather than turn it over to someone as green as Billy.

And in the middle of it all is Sharla Ricketts. As usual she’s drinking and drugging, playing one side against the other and lying to the liars. But Sharla’s life has gotten even more out of hand since we last saw her in Getaway. She doesn’t realize the craziness may cost her more than she’s willing to pay.

With time running out and the meth-head kidnappers growing more brutal each day, Billy scrambles to find Arlita’s missing granddaughter. But Billy’s always a step behind Arlita…and his next step just might get him killed.

(Prologue to The Billy Keene Stories)

“The characters drew me in right away with their addictive personalities and I loved the bits of humor throughout the book.”
— Amazon Reader Review

A financial advisor with a gambling problem. His sexaholic best friend. And one very attractive and very bored young woman. When they all meet it turns into a vicious game of cat and mouse—but who’s the cat and who’s the mouse?

Leaving behind their quiet suburbs, Felix and his well-off best friend, Geoff, check into a resort casino for a lost boys weekend — a little golf, some gambling and a lot of indulging their worst impulses.

No sooner do they arrive than they meet Sharla. She’s down for drinking, drugging and generally jacking with people. Nothing personal, it’s just her way entertaining herself while her boyfriend, a big and rich redneck with a temper, gambles away his daddy’s money.

Felix recognizes that Sharla is trouble. So when she decides to have some fun by letting Geoff think he’s seducing her all so she can steal from him, it’s up to Felix to look out for his naive friend. Of course, whenever Sharla’s involved it’s a different sort of gambling and this time it will be for the ultimate stakes when her idea of what passes for entertainment takes a cruel turn.

But despite his suburban dad appearance, Felix is no stranger to ruthless people, and before this getaway weekend is over, everyone will be betting against their own better nature to survive.
