The Valkyrie Smith Mystery Series, Book One: Should Be Dead
Valkyrie Smith should be dead. None of the killer’s other victims have survived. Yet somehow, after spending two long nights trapped at the bottom of a dry well with a broken back, Valkyrie miraculously came through. She lost everything that night: her husband, her son, her dreams. Lying at the bottom of that well, staring up at a tiny circle of sky and waiting for the killer to find her and finish the job at any moment, Val lost one more thing: She lost her fear.

The doctors told her she might never walk again, but Val refused to give up. After years of rehabilitation and relentless determination, Valkyrie regained her mobility. She didn't stop there. Valkyrie went on to take training in self defense and firearms, and developed a strategy to track down the killer. She dedicated her life to bringing him to justice. She walked away from her past forever, and began moving from to town to town in search of the man who had slaughtered her family.

Now, after a series of missed opportunities, Valkyrie finally has her chance. An anonymous phone call informs her that the man she has been hunting has surfaced again in Sequoia County, a rural California landscape of redwood forests, vineyards, and isolated coastlines. Valkyrie knows it could be a trap. She doesn’t care. Armed with her skills, her intellect, and her determination, Valkyrie heads straight into the heart of danger. She thinks she’s prepared for anything. She’s wrong.
Valkyrie Smith, Book Two: The Devil's Road
Valkyrie’s search for the serial killer who murdered her family leads to an isolated Montana town with a shady past. It seems to be a quiet, peaceful place now -the sort of place where folks don’t lock their doors at night- but something evil still lurks just beneath the surface.

Valkyrie is close. She can feel it. The Collector is here, and this time she’s determined to catch him. But will the local police chief distract her with his investigation into the town’s rash of abductions? Is it possible that these murders could be the work of the Collector also, or is it just another diversion from her real goal? Valkyrie’s resolve is being tested, and this time what she learns about the killer will change everything.
Dead End

The tables have turned. The Informant is dead; the Collector is on the run. Valkyrie knows the serial killer’s real name now. She’s about to learn his past. The only thing coming between Val and her long-sought revenge is the final missing piece of the puzzle: Why her? What connects the killer to her family?

If Val can unravel the plot in time, she might find the answers to all her questions and save dozens of lives. But if her plan succeeds, and she finally meets the Collector face to face, one chilling fact remains, which the killer reminds her in his own words: “Somebody’s gotta die.”
He Said, She Said "Murder" Book One
Meet Joe and Tanja Shepherd, two newlyweds who've given up their law enforcement careers to become private detectives. Unfortunately, the timing couldn't be worse. The economy is bad, jobs are scarce, and they're about to lose their home. To make matters worse, Tanja is pregnant and expecting any day.

Then Joe's old friend Sheriff Diekmann approaches the couple with an offer. He will pay the detectives as consultants to investigate a cold case that he wants solved. It won't be easy: the victim has been dead for five years, the trail has gone cold, and the case was bungled by the original investigators. But the Shepherds are willing to do whatever it takes to save their home, even if it means risking their lives to bring the cold-blooded killer to justice.
He Said, She Said- Book Two:
Murder on the Lost Coast
When Joe and Tanja Shepherd set sail on their newly renovated sailboat, they are expecting a relaxing vacation on northern California’s remote Lost Coast. Little do they know that a tropical storm is headed their way, and that a killer is making alternative plans for their weekend.

After a harrowing boat ride, they reach the Lost Coast Inn exhausted, cold, and soaked to the bone. Thankfully, the inn is just as beautiful, luxurious, and welcoming as they had hoped it would be. It seems the worst is over, until they learn that the owner has sold the resort and is about to lay off the entire staff. Tensions are rising as the storm hits, and it hits with a vengeance. The phone lines are down, the cell phones aren’t working, and the old fisherman who runs the lighthouse has gone missing. The sheriff makes an emergency helicopter trip out between storms and is dismayed to find Jacob dead. Worse yet, it looks like the Joe might be the sheriff’s only suspect.

The sheriff warns the Shepherds in no uncertain terms that they are not to even consider investigating Jacob’s death. Naturally, they do just the opposite. After all, Tanja isn’t about to let Joe be arrested for murder. Unfortunately, proving his innocence won’t be as easy as it sounds.
