Cats in the Cradle of Civilization


Glenda Nagel finds herself in the center of a mystery surrounding the Egyptian Goddess Bastett. How can she not respect a civilization that loves cats as much as she cherishes her three furry roommates? As editor of the Getty Museum’s “Archeology in Today’s World”, she is aware of the role ancient artifacts play on the market for collectors. What she didn’t count on was being in the center of an artifact smuggling operation and having her home in Juniper Hills ransacked. If she’s going to continue to breath, she and a freelance reporter she’s hired will have to unravel the intrigue surrounding a perfect ivory statuette with emerald eyes uncovered by her own cats in a clay pot given her by the new Antiquities Director of the Getty Museum.

Dragons Among Us

In a world full of anomalies such as the platypus and the self-reproducing Komodo dragon is the human race willing to accept the fact dragons may be real?


Sapian Draconi, dragon-human shape shifters, all over the world face this dilemma every day. The question has become life-and-death as their species is plagued with unexpected and unwanted shifting in the most unlikely of places.


The Ancient Ones, full-blooded dragons, can offer advice, but few seem to put forward workable solutions to the problem.


The fate of the shape shifters hangs in the balance, and an answer must be found before the Homo Sapiens find, dissect, and hunt to extinction their kind.

Dragons Among the Eagles

The international dragon conference is finished; the flight from Northwest China to Washington State in the Northwest of the US is completed, and now, Aleda Sable faces the toughest decision of her life—to stay in dragon form, live as a two-legged or put one foot in the human world and one talon in the dragon world.


An urgent call from Warren, her boss and the editor of the newspaper where she works, calls her to cover a reported sighting of a deceased dragon in a crashed vehicle on the I-205 in Oregon. Arriving at the scene, Aleda finds all traffic being diverted. No one is getting close enough to see the accident.


TV news reports briefly flash pictures of the legs of a dragon poking out of a crashed car. However, the bodies seem to disappear into thin air. When the stations try to make follow up reports, state highway workers busily tearing up the roads is all they find.


In determining the truth of the shifter disappearances, Aleda finds the truth of her own problem.

Enchanted Realms II Anthology -

Cyre Drake

Dragons? In the 21st century? Oh, puh-lease. Aleda Sable works for a newspaper of questionable veracity in Portland, Oregon. When Warren Hennessy, her editor, gives her an assignment to verify a fuzzy picture with a dark spot he swears is a dragon, Aleda begins to doubt his sanity.

She takes her planned vacation into the Mt. St. Helen’s wilderness to unwind and marvel at the tenacity of Mother Nature. It hardly seems 25 years have passed since the eruption happened that killed so many and changed the mindset as well as the landscape of the Northwest. 

Her vacation becomes a quest into her own unusual background and physical attributes; her college cocoon quickly unraveling as she joins forces with a legendary creature, Cyre Drake, Dragon, to save the planet from forces of which most of the inhabitants have no knowledge.

A St. Patty's Day Tale -

Meadows of Gold

In the meadows outside Eugene, Oregon, two faerie visitors from another time are thrust into the property feud between the local faeries and night elves. An old-fashioned sword duel triggers raiding from one faction and raises fears among the humans sharing the valley.


A single warrior gnome takes matters into her hands and prods the magic folk to control their own destiny. The wayward 19th century faeries dabble in creating havoc in the 20th century but are, again, whisked away before they can do harm.
