Vigilare and Vigilare Hellhound are paranormal thrillers, The Boots My Mother Gave Me is a young adult women's fiction, and Get This Body in a Barn: A Milkmaid's Guide to Fitness is a non-fiction fitness guide.

Vigilare:

Book #1 in Vigilare series. Where One System Fails, Another Never Gives Up! Detectives Gina DeLuca and Tony Gronkowski investigate a string of murders among Vanguard's most loathsome population, rapists and pedophiles. With fed up citizens, the city is on the verge of a vigilante uprising in support of their seemingly superhuman Vigilare with the sparkling emerald green eyes. Friend or foe, Vanguard Police Department has a job to do in bringing the vigilant one to justice, causing their own internal battle with right and wrong, immoral and just. Following their leads, Detectives DeLuca and Gronkowski find themselves pulled into a mysterious world of super blood and super powers, and closer to the Vigilare than ever expected. It's a race to the finish between Detectives DeLuca and Gronkowski and the Vigilare to figure out who she is and why she exists. The first in a Trilogy, Vigilare-the one who watches over-comes to light. Advisory: Rated Mature. Mature themes. Mature language. Not for young audiences. Nor for the faint of heart.

Vigilare: Hellhound:


Book #2 in Vigilare series.

A red hue emerges, where once it was only emerald green!

Now accepting of her position, Vigilare is propelled into a twist on Greek Mythology's Cerberus―Hell Hound―a rival Vigilare with fire capabilities. ETNA harbored her blood. Have they created a monster they cannot control? Along with her motley crew, the dashing Detective Tony Gronkowski, wily hematologist Dr. Godfrey and suspicious Emily Truly, Vigilare comes face to face with her past in the form of the hellish one.

As the city of New Orleans and its Gambini mafia family are under siege with Vigilare drones, the power hungry Emily wastes no time in solidifying her place in the ranks when she exposes Vigilare to the menacing Hell Hound. Newcomer, Maxim Kiesel, the steel blue-eyed prodigy graced with icy powers may very well be the antidote, or the ultimate traitor.

Will Vigilare give up her role, sacrificing her immortality to stop Hell Hound? The second in a trilogy, Vigilare: Hell Hound―when power is given, the true testament of one's character will rise.

The Boots My Mother Gave Me:


AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL AWARD QUARTER-FINALIST

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through life in someone else's shoes?

Strong-willed tomboy Harley LeBeau puts you in the boots her mother gave her, as she takes you along her journey of escape from an abusive childhood and the desire to find herself as she comes of age. Made to feel a burden to her father simply by her gender, Harley is determined to prove her worth and independence, leaving the small town she grew up in and the one boy who gave her a soft place to fall, Jeremiah Johnson. Torn between saving herself and abandoning her mother and younger sister, Harley chooses her own life in hopes they will choose theirs, too.

A mature, candid read for everyone. A must for women. The Boots My Mother Gave Me explores the dynamics of abuse and dysfunction, the courage to overcome, the strength in sisterhood, and the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mothers and daughters.

Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love.

Get This Body in a Barn: A Milkmaid's Guide to Fitness:


NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION 2013: GET FIT!

If you're looking for a no thrills, no frills, tried and tested laywoman's fitness routine for the average everyday woman, you may enjoy this book.

Call me a fundamentalist, in life and in physical fitness, which I find helpful in productivity and time management. I don't have much time for novelties. I enjoy capitalizing on the basics. Life doesn't have to be complicated, no more than does fitness. The fast-paced world in which we live has all of us chasing down the ever elusive element of time. “I don't have the time” is the number one reason/excuse people consistently cite for not working out.

This book is my interpretation of working with what you have and making what you have work for you, in both your physical form and fitness resources, while keeping in mind convenience and time factors. This is a guide for beginners and intermediates, highlighting a few, very basic, yet specific resistance and cardiovascular exercises that are fully transportable across the gym and at-home fitness spectrums. Equipped with our bodies and very few essentials, we all have the capacity to meet our fitness goals. With those things, there is nothing left to do but to do it…get active.

In its relativity, having the time has nothing to do with it. Working out boils down to will and commitment, making the time has everything to do with it. Personally, I find I am more inclined to make time for fitness if it is convenient, productive (yields results) and if I can capitalize on my gains (cash in on the best results in the shortest amount of time). To me, that outcome is worth making time for. These are the principles discussed herein, turning up the intensity for a shorter period of time, attempting to accrue more bang for your buck!

Inspired by a makeshift gym in a barn, all exercises and principles within the book are translatable across the continuum, be it a spare room, the garage, the gym or a barn. With an encouraging girl-next-door delivery, birds-eye view of my personal regimen and basic blueprints for constructing your very own weekly workout regimen, sculpting the body you desire is simply a matter of commitment, time management and follow-through.

My fitness credentials include previous certification as a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist. I am currently a licensed Registered Nurse. I have an M.A. in Commnication and a B.S. in both Animal Science and Nursing, with a minor in Athletic Training. However, my physical fitness education started in my childhood, growing up on a dairy farm...the impetus behind the book and its humble 'tongue-in-cheek' cover.
