... and coming later:Trails Through the Woods The reflections of a man wrapped in the beauty and complexity of nature and tortured by the tragedies delivered by Fate.
Castle Secrets A young architect is trying to make his mark. An unexpected message from a lawyer in Ireland sends him there to pursue the inheritance of an old Estate. His travel puts his job in jeopardy; but he keeps making discoveries that make it worthwhile -- about history, revolutions, murder, his family and who to trust.
The Locked Room A murder mystery that occured in a locked room, inaccessible from the outside.
The Hag at the Neck A story of being lost and being found; of desperate curiosity and then discovery; and of living in the moment.
How about some exciting mysteries for six to nine year old readers. The books use a limited vocabulary so they're very readable, but they're packed with adventure and mystery. That's the story behind the Pete and Billy Mysteries.
