White-knuckle fiction: FBI thrillers with a twist of faith.


LJW-Tree-sq smallI love getting lost in a book and I’ll bet you do, too! My FBI thrillers are designed to capture your attention and take you on a white-knuckle roller coaster ride to a satisfying ending. Please take a moment and check out my books and the background behind my writing. My blog reflects my thinking on a variety of topics. Don’t forget my upcoming events.  And browse the locations page and discover what inspired the settings of my books. A search for justice, the hunt for love, a need for hope: These are the threads that comprise my stories. I hope you enjoy them!
