The Device 

An elusive and dangerous serial killer is terrorizing New York. The murderer’s method of operation is baffling and grotesque. There seems to be a specific purpose for the killings, but no one can quite grasp it.

When two police detectives arrive at the first crime scene, their dislike of each other is evident, and they immediately collide. Fiona Sapiro, head of the newly conceived New York Special Force unit, urgently seeks to become involved with the investigation and help end the deadly assaults. Sophie Andrews, a detective from the nearby precinct where the murders occurred, rejects all offers of Fiona’s participation. Both women desire an end to the bloodshed and the capture of the killer, but first, they will need to put their differences aside to solve the crimes.

Over time, the killer becomes progressively more arrogant, and the carnage at the crime scenes intensifies. As Fiona and Sophie are forced to accept collaboration, their relationship deepens. Will they finally acknowledge they are a perfect fit, or will they run away from feelings that both deem perilous?

One thing is certain … the killing must stop!

Resist and Triumph

As 2017 opened, the United States took several steps back in the progress toward equality. In response, a group of authors has stepped up to offer positive stories of hope and love. In an effort to help fight and support those groups who are facing even greater challenges, we wrote these stories to offer a small amount of aid.

Stories of hope, resistance, and ultimately triumph fill the pages of this anthology.

All proceeds of the anthology go to The Trevor Project and GLAAD to help fight the effects of the dark times we’re facing.

Love is Love

LOVE IS LOVE 

Poetry Anthology A collection of poems written by over fifty authors in aid of the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse Attack. On June 12, 2016, the most horrendous mass shooting in US history and an unfathomable act of hate was directed at the LGBT community in Orlando. The horror of this tragedy reverberated around the world, leaving millions shocked and appalled at the senseless violence that destroyed so many innocent lives. In a display of solidarity with the victims and survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting, a group of LGBTQ+ and straight allies, from all across the globe, came together to produce a collection of poems in celebration of love and acceptance. The resulting Love is Love Poetry Anthology is dedicated to the families and victims of the shooting and all proceeds of this work will be donated to Equality Florida’s Pulse Victims Fund. In this small way, the authors, along with the readers who purchase this work, seek to contribute to the lives of those who still suffer from the consequences of the malice directed toward them, and offer some positivity and compassion in the face of such bigotry.
