I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit my website, inKlings. If you’re here, I imagine it is because you, too, are a devotee of sailing, adventure, travel and the world of books.
My latest, greatest news is that on June 1, 2014, my new novel DRAGON’S TRIANGLE was released by Thomas & Mercer as an ebook, paperback and audiobook. This is the sequel to my 2013 book, CIRCLE OF BONES. That first novel in this adventure thriller series featured a pair of new characters: Riley, a female former Marine, now single-handing her forty-foot sailboat, and Cole Thatcher, a maritime archeologist searching for the wreck of a World War II French submarine, the SURCOUF, that went missing in 1942.
The new book picks up the story four years after the end of Bones. Riley has settled into her new life in Thailand, working aboard her sailboat and doing her best to leave the past behind. When she receives a letter from a World War II vet claiming to have served with her grandfather who went missing in action, Riley is once again pulled into the intrigue that tore her family apart and led to the disappearance of her former search partner—and the love of her life.
Armed with the secret code her grandfather left behind, Riley must head to the Philippines to hunt for a mysterious shipwreck, uncover the truth of Yamashita’s gold, and find the answers to old questions about her own family.
I’ve been very fortunate in my life, and I’ve been able to follow my inklings and sail aboard many boats to islands and continents across half the world. I enjoy creating imaginary worlds out of my experiences such as the adventures of Seychelle Sullivan, the tug and salvage captain who lives in Fort Lauderdale with her dog, Abaco. I recently got the rights back to the four Seychelle suspense books and they are all now available as individual ebooks or as a boxed set on Kindle, Nook, iBooks or Kobo. I have an idea for a new Seychelle book, and I hope to write it and release it within the next year.
I hope you all will give my new Shipwreck Series a try. If you think Seychelle gets into a whole lot of trouble, just wait until you meet Riley.
