NIGHTWALKER - April, 2009 - Mira Books Mass Market- ISBN-13: 978-0-7783-2637-3
Jessy Sparhawk has seen firsthand how gambling can ruin people’s lives. But one night, desperate for money, she places the bet that will change her life forever. Just as she’s collecting her winnings, a man stumbles through the crowd, a knife protruding from his back, and crashes into her, pinning her to the craps table.
Hired to investigate the murder, private detective Dillon Wolf finds himself fascinated by the gorgeous redhead who’d been trapped beneath the victim – and by the single word the dying man had whispered in her ear, Indigo.
What neither of them realizes is that the nightmare is only just beginning. Because bodyguard Tanner Green may have been killed by that knife, but his angry ghost isn’t going anywhere – not without vengeance. Now, literally caught between the living and the dead, Dillon and Jessy have no choice but to forge ahead together. Their investigation will take them from the glitz of the Vegas strip into the dealings of casino magnate Emil Landon, the man who signs both their paychecks, and out into the desert to a ghost town called Indigo, where past and present come together in a search for gold.

When Sarah McKinley is finally able to buy and restore the historic Florida mansion that she has always loved, she dismisses the horror stories of past residents vanishing and a long-dead housekeeper who practiced black magic. Then, in the midst of renovations, she makes a grim discovery. Hidden within the walls of Sarah's dream house are the remains of dozens of bodies—some dating back over a century.
The door to the past is blown wide open when Caleb Anderson, a private investigator, shows up at the mansion. He believes several current missing-persons cases are linked to the house and its dark past. Working together to find the connection and stop a contemporary killer, Sarah and Caleb are compelled to research the history of the haunted house, growing closer to each other even as the solution to the murders eludes them.
But there is one who knows the truth…a spirit who follows every move they make. Soon Caleb begins to fear that if he can't stay a step ahead, he could lose Sarah to a killer with an ability to transcend time in a quest for blood and sacrifice.

The Death Dealer
Joe is driving, he's far enough behind an accident to stop before becoming one of the cars involved in it. He rescues a young girl from a car about to explode when it becomes a major situation. He believes that he has rescued the driver, too, the girl's uncle, because the man spoke to him. He later discovers that the man's neck was broken on impact, and that he couldn't possibly have spoken to him. Later that afternoon, it is at a bar, drinking, when Genevieve finds him. She's disturbed. The man who died is another member of a group called The Ravens, dedicated fans, readers and writers, who had formed a Poe society.
Genevieve has become close with her mother, and her mother is one of the Ravens. Genevieve had come to Joe when the first of the Ravens, a man named Thane Bigelow, had been killed, by poison (a la a Poe story), but the police investigation was getting nowhere. The only clue had been a printed note on the man's desk with the message: Quoth the raven, "Die!"
While Joe is dealing with the fact that a dead man spoke to him, Genevieve is anxious that he realize that another man involved in the accident, the owner of the first car struck, is Sam Latham, also a member of the Ravens.

She talks to dead people...
A year ago, archaeologist Leslie MacIntyre barely survived the explosion that took the life of her
fiancé, Matt Connolly. In the long months since, she’s slowly come to terms not only with her loss but with her unsettling new ability to communicate with ghosts, a dubious “gift” received in the wake of her own brush with death.
Now she’s returned to lower Manhattan’s historic Hastings House, site of the explosion, to conquer her fears and investigate a newly discovered burial ground. In this place restless spirits hold the secrets not only of past injustice but of a very real and very contemporary conspiracy with deadly designs on the city’s women—including Leslie herself. By night Matt visits her in dreams, warning her and offering clues to the truth, while by day she finds herself helped by—and attracted to— his
flesh-and-blood cousin Joe.
Torn by her feelings for both men, caught between the worlds of the living and the dead, Leslie struggles against the encroaching danger that threatens to overcome her. As she is drawn closer to the darkness at the heart of Hastings House, she must ultimately face the power of an evil mind, alone in a place where not even the men she loves can save her.
The Dead Room
THE VISION July, 2006 /Re-Issue January, 2013- Mira Books - ISBN: 0-7783-2321-8
The gift of sight comes at a dangerous price.
When Deep Down Salvage begins the hunt for the Marie Josephine, it seems like any other dive . . . until Genevieve Wallace sees the vision of a dead woman in the water, her vacant eyes boring into Genevieve's very soul.
Terrified and confused by what she saw, Genevieve is haunted by the memory, but no one—including her diving partner Thor Thompson—believes her. When a dead woman washes up on shore, everyone assumes that is Genevieve's "vision," but Genevieve knows the truth: the dead woman's clothing is not the ghost she saw but another victim of the same brutal killer.
Sensing that the threat of death is coming closer, she and Thor are forced to acknowledge that some things can't be explained, but simply are. Somehow they have to link a violent past with a present-day mystery or risk losing themselves in an abyss of terror.
