My latest offering, Aqua Vitae, is now available as a Kindle eBook for purchase (only $2.99!) or for borrowing from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library (for Amazon Prime Members). Synopsis as follows:
Wildlife biologist Jackie Bannon may have found just the job to jump-start her stalled career. A potential client with seemingly bottomless pockets and plans for an unorthodox business venture has invited her to his private Caribbean island to discuss her coming on board.Like most of my books, this one is sort of a genre mashup, but leans heavily towards the scientific thriller side of things. It features exotic locales, lots of pretty flowers and friendly little critters and a protagonist who, like so many of us, is struggling with a too-good-to-be-true career decision that soon proves to be anything but. And I've included a nice dollop of righteous vengeance because, well, that really is the fun part, isn't it?
At first glance, the place seems a textbook tropical paradise: glistening white sand beaches, lush highland forests, every inch teeming with exotic flowers and wildlife. But a closer look reveals widespread abnormal behavior among the native animal species; behavior that Jackie recognizes as deeply problematic.
Despite her misgivings, she wasn't about to turn down a high-paying job on a luxurious private island, especially one that could remake her career, and she relished the independence she would be allowed. But with that independence would come responsibility, and she could already see that there was much more to this island than meets the eye...
