Excerpt of Home Run:
There was a pure energy in the car as they drove away from the arena. Christian Keller had it all, just when he thought he’d lost it.
His career ending injuries were just the start to finding out he could keep going and that’s what he was doing.
He’d just watched his sister perform with her husband, on stage at the Bridgestone Arena right there in Nashville. Hometown kids making it big time.
As his best friend Dave pulled out of the parking lot the number one country song came on the radio, and wouldn’t you know it, it was Clara and Warner Wright, his sister and her husband.
Christian’s fiancée Victoria hugged his arm and slid across the back seat as close as she could to him. “That was the best concert ever. Your sister and Warner were phenomenal. The Broke Tourists are one of my favorite bands. And that Savannah and her hair!”
Ashley, Victoria’s sister, turned in her seat and looked at her. “I know, right? Do you think we could buy hair like that?”
They both laughed, but Christian just took in the ambiance.
His career as a baseball player was over. He had come to grips with that. It had caused him a lot of emotional and physical pain, over the past year, but now he had new things to look forward too.
They were already talking about him coming into the organization as management. The woman of his dreams had accepted his marriage proposal and wore his ring. And tonight he’d take her home, to the home he had built—for them. It was a surprise and he had something very special planned.
“You know,” Victoria continued. “Ali would love a Savannah wig. We should think about marketing them.”
“My kids and their tastes,” Ashley added.
Laughter filled the car and then a scream pierced the air.
A blinding white light forced him to cover his eyes.

Christian sat up in bed. His heart was racing. His face and hair were wet. And he was alone.
He threw his head back against his pillow.
Of course he was alone. He’d been alone for almost a year and the replay of that night wouldn’t give him any peace.
Christian rolled to his side and he looked at his phone on the night stand. It was five-thirty in the morning. He let out a grunt and rolled out of bed.
It took a minute for his knee to be stable under him. His shoulder ached, as it had since the surgery on it after the accident.
He flipped on the light in the bathroom and looked at himself in the mirror. The jagged scar on his forehead was beginning to fade, but it would always remind him that on that night he’d lost everything. His career. His best friend. And even if her life wasn’t taken—he’d lost his fiancée.
Well that was life now. She had a lot to deal with too.
Christian splashed his face with cold water.
Victoria’s life had changed drastically when that drunk driver crossed the median. She’d lost her sister in that moment. Her leg was shattered. And she was the next of kin to her niece and nephew, whom she was now raising.
A single woman trying to advance her career and plan a wedding was now guardian to a two year old and a four year old—and he was no help.
Christian turned on the shower and let it warm.
He’d been so overwhelmed with losing his best friend he’d nearly lost his mind. And it wasn’t losing him it was watching him die and not being able to get free from the accident to help him.
Just the thought of it made his heart kick start again.
He slipped off his boxers and climbed into the shower. But no matter how hot the water was, it would never wash away the pain that day still caused.
By six thirty he was dressed and sitting in his quiet kitchen having a cup of coffee. The dress shirt and tie made him uncomfortable, but it was the way he had to dress for work now. He supposed he owed it to his brother and uncle for stepping in and giving him a job, though he didn’t care much about construction.
His entire family had stepped in when he needed them. There was no way to repay them. His sister Clara and cousin Avery were at his house daily to make sure he ate. His mother stopped and cleaned the house. His future sister-in-law Darcy made him freezer dinners and stocked them for him.
It had been like this for a year.
When would it all ease so he could get on with his life?

Before lunch the door to his office creaked open and Darcy stuck her head in.
“I’m going to lunch with my bridesmaids. Ed is free for Chinese food. He said to send you his way when you’re done.”
Christian nodded. “I’ll be done in a few.”
Darcy shut the door and Christian was alone, again. It was funny, he thought, for being so alone all the time there were always people around him. That was what came with a big family.
A new Chinese restaurant had opened just down the street and Ed had been dying to try it. Christian figured it would be good for leftovers and that would warm up for dinner. It was just one less thing to think about.
“So did you look over that proposal I sent you?” Ed asked as he adjusted the place setting in front of him.
“Yeah. I don’t know if I understand any of it. Could you work in some baseball terms?”
Ed laughed. “It’s a baseball stadium. I thought you’d want to be part of that.”
Christian put down his menu. “You’d think huh?”
He lazily looked around the restaurant and that was when a set of dark eyes caught his.
Victoria waved and was already walking toward them.
It had been nearly eight months since he’d seen her—since he’d told her that he wasn’t someone who could just take on someone else’s children and start from there. That was the day she walked out of his life. God, he was an idiot.
She looked different. Her hair was shorter and there were dark circles under her eyes, as if she hadn’t slept in eight months. He probably looked like that too. He never got a good night’s sleep.
“Hello, Chris.” She smiled down at him and then turned her smile to Ed. “Hi, Ed.”
“Tori!” Ed crawled out of the booth and gave her a hug. “How are you?”
“I’m good.” Christian wondered if she noticed her voice quivered.
“How are the kids?”
Christian watched as her jaw tightened and she kept her eyes on Ed. “Sam just turned three last weekend. He’s into everything. Ali just started kindergarten.”
“Wow.” Ed looked at Christian. “Kids get big fast, eh, Chris?”
Christian narrowed his stare on his brother.
“You’ll be at the wedding right?” Ed was touching her arm. “I thought Darcy said you’d RSVP’d.”
“I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Ali can’t stop talking about it.”
“I look forward to it.” Ed smiled and then both of them looked at Christian still seated in the booth.
“Guess we’ll see you then,” he croaked out.
Victoria nodded and forced a smile. As she walked past him, limping just as he did now too, she put her hand on his shoulder. “It was good to see you, Chris.”
Then she was gone.
Ed sat back down and shook his head. “You’re pathetic.”
“Me? Why?”
“She’s still in love with you.”
“She is not. She dumped me.”
“Because she had to.”
“Had to?” He picked up his hot tea and burned the pads of his fingers and then his throat. But it was worth it.
Ed opened the package of chop sticks by his plate and tore the two wooden pieces apart. “She lost a lot that night. Her sister died. Her brother-in-law died. She got two kids to raise and has no parents to help her. She’s all alone and all you could tell her was you weren’t ready for a fully formed family. I didn’t realize you were an asshole, until that day.”
If Christian was the man he used to be, he’d be up from that table and have pulled his brother out of that side of the booth by his shirt collar. But as if to remind him that he wasn’t an athlete any more, his knee throbbed and the pain shot up through his body.
“She didn’t need me around when she was trying to get things taken care of.”
“You’re right. Six surgeries on your leg and two toddlers at home is a piece of cake. Why have the man you love getting in the way?”
Christian swallowed hard. He didn’t need his brother poking at him. It had been a year and he felt bad enough.
Luckily the food arrived just in time for his brother to shove some in his mouth and shut up. Christian, on the other hand had lost his appetite.
He had become a pathetic loser and he’d lost the only thing that he’d ever cared about—Victoria.
He took another long, scalding sip of his tea. Maybe Ed’s wedding would be the perfect place to apologize for being an ass.
It wasn’t in him to be a father right now, but it didn’t mean he couldn’t be a friend. She looked as though she certainly could use one. And they’d been friends too—hadn’t they?
Christian tore open his chop sticks and broke them apart. As he picked up a pot sticker he thought about his parents.
They’d been divorced when his mother was diagnosed with cancer and her husband had walked out on her to marry another woman and have a baby. She was alone with three kids.
He tugged at his collar because it was getting hot.
His own father, who was at the time engaged to Kathy, still stepped up and took care of his mother. Damn, he’d even shaved his head for her.
That was love. That was commitment.
It was right too. His father’s marriage to Kathy lasted less than a day and he was back with Christian’s mom and had been married, again, ever since.
What had Christian done when the woman he loved needed him? He backed away.
He put down the pot sticker. Again, he wasn’t hungry.
They’d both lost a lot that night when that drunk driver hit that car. Lives changed in a flash—a bright white flash.
Ed was right. He was pathetic.
But he was done being pathetic. It was time Christian Keller took his life back—and the woman.

Excerpt of Blissful Tragedy:


An eerie silence takes over the dark night sky. I stare straight ahead and breathe slowly, trying to ignore the pounding of my heart. The crisp, cool, spring air caresses my body and heightens my senses. I shiver slightly. The bone-rattling drum beat pulsates through my chest. I jump up from my seat as the guitar screams its heavy ear-splitting shriek, like a choir of electric angels. A frenzy of loud cheers emerges, piercing through the calmness as hundreds of fans leap to their feet. The bright lights focus on center stage. I take a deep breath and stare at the silhouette slowly being illuminated.
Van Sinclair stands so close that if I lunged forward, I’d crash into six feet of pure muscle. My eyes fixate on his light-brown, shoulder length, perfectly messy hair that frames his chiseled face. Then, they travel down to the tight black T-shirt that clings to every sculpted muscle of his torso, flaunting them in just the right way. My lips part and chills flood my body causing the hair on the back of my neck to stand on end. I hold in a deep breath and slowly exhale as he grips the microphone stand, pulling it close to his body. He closes his eyes and begins to belt out the lyrics. His raw powerful tones, both decades old and brand new at the same time, resonate through the night sky. Hot lights shining down on the stage highlight a bead of sweat that runs down his arm, over the impeccably detailed dragon tattooed on his left bicep. He lifts his head and looks into the crowd. My heart races as I stare into his exquisite emerald green eyes, mesmerized.
“Oh my God, he’s so hot!” Brooke yells into my ear, breaking my trance. “His picture doesn’t do him justice.”
“You can say that again,” Sydney agrees.
Breathless, all I can do is nod.
Devil’s Garden is promoting their best album yet. Even though the two-thousand-seat amphitheater is not the largest of venues, it’s sold out tonight. A wall of bodies closes in, pushing us toward the stage. The hard wood against my palms keeps the crowd at bay. Can it keep me from being crushed for the whole two hour set? My skin glistens as the three of us sway, moving to the music. Wait, is Van Sinclair watching me? Yeah right, like that would happen.

Excerpt of How to Have an Affair:
‘Where on earth is your bloody father?’ Robyn muttered as she stood with her hands on her hips looking out of the lounge window.
Molly tutted. ‘Daddy says you shouldn’t say bloody.’
‘I’m sorry, sweetheart, but Mummy has a train to catch and Daddy’s late again.’
‘We could go to Grandma’s,’ suggested Molly.
‘That’s a really good idea, sweet-pea, but I haven’t time to take you. I’ll just try Daddy again.’
Robyn delved in her handbag for her mobile. Bloody typical, I arrange one weekend away and the sodding man can’t even make an effort to come home on time.
‘He’s here,’ Molly shouted as she saw her Daddy quickly get out of his car and run up the drive.
‘About bloody time. Oops! Sorry Molly.’
Dave burst into the lounge, ‘Sorry I’m late. I had some letters to sign that needed to be off today.’
‘Oh, that’s alright then. Far more important than my plans,’ Robyn answered, glaring at her husband. ‘And that took you two hours? You were supposed to be home at one.’
‘Look, I’ve said I’m sorry. I’m here now.’ Dave rolled his eyes.
‘But I’m sick of it. Last week you left me sitting here all dressed up and you didn’t even bother to ring.’
‘Why are you bringing that up again? I told you I had an important meeting that ran over.’
‘It’s always something with you.’
‘Hadn’t you better get off? You’ve got a train to catch.’
‘Oh really! You noticed.’
God that man! One day he’ll put me and the children before his bloody work.
‘Dinner’s in the oven, all you need to do is turn it on,’ she reminded him as she picked up her bags from the hallway. ‘If you can remember how,’ she added under her breath. ‘And don’t forget it’s bath-time tonight, and Jake needs his medicine.’
‘I thought you said you’d leave me a list.’
‘I have, but you’ll probably be too busy to read it … Jake, come and give Mummy a kiss,’ she said to her two and a half year old son, who was sitting on the sofa watching Fireman Sam.
‘Where are you going, Mummy?’ asked Jake as he ran to give her a hug.
‘I’ve already told you, pumpkin, I’m going on a course.’
‘Can I come?’
‘No sweetie, we’ve talked about this, remember? Daddy and Grandma are looking after you until Mummy comes back.’
Jake’s bottom lip started to quiver and tears welled up in his eyes.
‘Don’t cry, darling. I’ll see you soon.’ She hugged him close. ‘I’m sure Daddy’s going to do some fun things tomorrow.’ She looked at Dave. ‘Come and take care of your son. I’ve got to go.’
Robyn bent down and kissed Molly. ‘Take care of Jakey for me.’ Molly, at six, loved the responsibility of looking after her younger brother.
‘I will, Mummy, I promise.’
‘Don’t I get a kiss?’ Dave asked.
‘No. I’m still mad. I’ll ring you later.’
She hadn’t meant to leave it on a sour note, but he was so frustrating!

The Soul of Jesus
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of our Savior, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
The surprises do not stop there. The Soul of Jesus saves the block-buster news until the very end – the soul of Jesus had a number of historical incarnations before its final incarnation, commencing many centuries back in time as the soul of Adam in the Garden of Eden.

Excerpt of The Soul of Jesus

Part 1 Where It Began

Chapter 1

Who was Edgar Cayce?

Edgar Cayce is regarded by many authorities in his field as America's legendary mystic. If you happen to be unfamiliar with the name, Edgar Cayce, the most probable reason is that you hail from a younger generation. Edger Cayce passed on in 1945 but he left behind an enormous legacy of unimaginably accurate psychic readings on an unusually diverse assortment of topics. In 1931, Edgar Cayce and a small group of friends and financial supporters incorporated the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. (A.R.E.), in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to preserve, organize and catalogue the rapidly multiplying copies of Edgar Cayce's psychic readings. It is estimated that Edgar Cayce gave more than 15,000 psychic readings in his lifetime, but in the early years the copies of the readings, primarily medical readings, were not retained, and the original record of these readings were given or sent to the individuals requesting the readings.
Today, the A.R.E. is still a thriving, charitable foundation, where members can view copies of over 14,000 complete Edgar Cayce psychic readings. Approximately 10,000 of these readings are medical readings, some 2500 are classified as life or reincarnation readings, and the remainder of the readings cover topics as diverse as domestic relations, the stock market and real estate investment, creation, the life and times of Jesus and those close to Him, as well as numerous other subjects.
You can, if you have not already done so, view Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. website at The non-members section contains a short biography of Edgar Cayce and information on other topics presented in Edgar Cayce's recorded readings. Now, if you still have concerns about the unique psychic abilities of Edgar Cayce, I would ask you to take a minute or two and perform an experiment. Please go to your favorite computer search engine and do a search on “Edgar Cayce”, and you will be amazed by the information that you will uncover. I recently performed another search as I was writing this paragraph and came up with 2,750,000 hits. Not too shabby for someone you might not have ever heard of before you started reading this chapter.
What about books, you may be thinking at this juncture? Over 300 books have been written by Edgar Cayce or by others who have used Edgar’s readings as the basis for their writing. To date, well over 30 biographies of Edgar Cayce are included in that number. Pause for a moment and try to count the people who have had over 30 biographies written about them. Did you run out of fingers and have to take your socks off? I doubt it!
If I rounded them all up, I probably have between forty and fifty of the over 300 books about Edgar Cayce that I just mentioned. Wonderful reading! I will take a minute or two and mention a few of my favorites.
There Is a River, by Thomas Sugrue, is the original Edgar Cayce biography, first published in 1943. It has now sold over a million copies.
The Lost Memoirs of Edgar Cayce, by A. Robert Smith, was pretty much written by Edgar himself, but Edgar’s soul was called home before the manuscript was completed and Robert Smith was asked to finish the manuscript. Robert had previously published a biography of Edgar’s eldest son, Hugh Lynn Cayce, titled Hugh Lynn Cayce: About My Father’s Business, and was Hugh Lynn’s obvious choice to complete his father’s memoirs.
Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation, by Noel Langley. I have established a second career writing reincarnation articles, and more recently novels, using the Edgar Cayce readings or my knowledge absorbed through studying Edgar’s 2500 life or reincarnation readings.
Edgar Cayce on Atlantis, by Edgar Evans Cayce, Edgar’s son. Interesting revelations! Atlantis is not a myth.
The Outer Limits of Edgar Cayce’s Power, written by Edgar Evans Cayce and Hugh Lynn Cayce, Edgar’s sons.
