Light Bringer, the Puzzle and the Game

My latest novel, Light Bringer, has just been published, and I’ve been spending the past few days updating sites and blogs. Still haven’t gotten around to my website yet  — it takes about ten times longer than I ever plan for. The only reason I’m telling you this is that I’d planned to write a great article about the themes of the book, perhaps talk about the plays of light in the novel, but that would take work, and I’m ready to play. So, let’s play! Just click on the image.

And if that isn’t any fun, here’s a jigsaw puzzle (I get such a kick out of these!)

Still want more fun?

SNARE – Revenge with a beat. Nominated for the Hillerman Sky Award at Left Coast 2011 

Native American pop singer/songwriter Katina Salvo’s career is about to take off.  There’s one problem: someone wants to kill her. Katina and her bodyguard, Deputy Steven Hawk, are attacked during an altercation at her first live concert. Could the assailant be a mysterious, dangerous man from her youth? Or her estranged father recently released from prison for killing her mother? 

Performed against the backdrop of the picturesque Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, and the mysterious Taos Pueblo Indian reservation, SNARE is a thriller fans of Tony Hillerman will appreciate. SNARE is Book Two of the Steven Hawk/Inola Walela thriller series.
