In the course of ten linked stories, the author brings to vivid life the rhythms of daily life in mid-1950’s Cuba, and the transition from Carlos’s carefree, nurturing childhood to his awakening to the responsibilities–and possibilities– of young manhood. Carlos resists authority; but he can’t resist Pedro’s wisdom as the Old Man dispenses advice about everything from the proper method of romantic kissing, to how to avoid judging a book by its cover–dramatized by a tale of Ernest Hemingway and an encounter with a Nazi spy. By the final story, just as Carlos longs to escape the restrictions of a small town and spread his wings in the big city of Havana, we also long, right along with him, to linger forever in the magical, love-filled world of Santa Rita.

When a great-grandson inherits two aging trunks and a stack of meticulously detailed journals penned by his great-grandfather, he sets out to fulfill his great-grandfather’s last request: to tell the story of an incredible life replete with adventure, violence, and tragedy. The great-grandfather’s name is Billy Battles–a man often trapped and overwhelmed by circumstances beyond his control.

For much of his 100-year-long life Billy is a man missing and largely unknown to his descendants. His great-grandson is about to change that. As he works his way through the aging journals and the other possessions he finds in the battered trunks he uncovers the truth about his mysterious great-grandfather–a man whose deeds and misdeeds propelled him on an extraordinary and perilous journey from the untamed American West to the inscrutable Far East, Latin America and Europe.

As he flips through the pages of the handwritten journals he learns of Billy’s surprising connections to the Spanish-American War, French Indochina, and revolutions in Mexico and other Latin American countries. But most of all he learns that in finding Billy Battles he has also found a long lost and astonishing link to the past.

An accident sends Dakota to the past; a modern gadget threatens his future.

Great Falls National Park, Virginia: Dakota Wesley drops his kayak into the river’s shallow edge. Below him the waterfalls roar in a maelstrom of nature’s fury. Shaking off last-second jitters, he peels out into the Potomac’s chilly waters, the fast current sweeping his boat downstream and into the realm of no turning back…chasing the big whitewater thrill. But then something goes terribly wrong.

When he comes to, Dakota finds that his modern surroundings have vanished. Instead, he discovers the Virginia landscape of an era long past–nearly 150 years earlier–a time torn by civil war. In order to survive, he joins another man’s desperate plight, and together they fend off starvation, foraging parties, and locals who question Dakota’s identity. Desperate to return to his future, Dakota finds hope in the form of a modern gadget, one that can change his fortunes. But it may also lead to his demise…

Expertly weaving a passion for the great outdoors with historical events, Great Falls is a unique and compelling new novel of unexpected journeys and chance encounters.

Wrong place, wrong time.

If the sun hadn’t been blinding her as she drove, if she’d left the Indian Territory 50 ride camp on Saturday after the ride, if she wasn’t set on completing rides in each region of the AERC, hell – if she hadn’t divorced Bobby; any one of these possibilities and she would have missed witnessing the murder of Richard Meadows.

But then, she would have missed meeting his son Roger. She also would have missed enduring the rudeness of Samuel Cole, the kidnapping attempts and the final race to town.

Was all the fear, running and pain worth meeting a strong, tender man? Damn straight it was. Bethany knows she’d go through it all again for the possibility of finding love.

During the year following her divorce from her controlling and cheating husband, Bethany competes across the nation in her favorite sport of Endurance racing where she finds freedom and peace. She adopts the persona of a sassy redhead when running for her life. This journey of self-discovery leads her to Riverview and Roger.

The story leads the reader through small town America, and the close knit of people who live there. The story also covers endurance racing and the camaraderie of those who spend long hours competing with one another and against the challenges of the trail. The trail is open for adventure and the chance of finding love.
