I grew up so close to Lake Erie, my feet are still wet. I began working as a reporter and photographer for the Port Clinton Daily News, when I was still in high school, learning the ropes from a wonderful managing editor. I went on to a career in the U.S. Army and traveled to places like Kaiserslautern, Germany, and Las Vegas, Nevada, which I thought was too hot. After retiring I went into business as a private investigator in Alaska. This work formed the basis for the character of Sidney Reed in my novels.
By R. J. Norgard: Trophy Kill (Sidney Reed Mystery Series)
Private investigator Sidney Reed hasn’t been the same since the tragic death of his wife, Molly. Sharing a rundown apartment above an Anchorage, Alaska coffee shop with a cat named Priscilla, he dulls his bitter memories with cheap beer and sarcasm. When he’s offered a bundle of cash for a simple surveillance job, Sidney sees a chance to finally put the broken pieces of his life back together. But once the job turns deadly, he’ll have to sort through a mountain of clues to solve this case – and confront his own demons in the process.

Q Is For Quarry: A Kinsey Millhone Novel Kindle Edition
by Sue Grafton (Author)
She was a “Jane Doe,” an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California’s Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff’s Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were multiple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the murder remained unsolved…
That was eighteen years ago. Now the two men who found the body are nearing the end of their careers in law enforcement—and they want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to help with their legwork and they turn to Kinsey Millhone.
Kinsey is intrigued by the cold case and agrees to take the job. But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what begins with the pursuit of Jane Doe’s real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.

• Professional hit men using Harry for target practice…
• The missing Shroud of Turin—and the possible involvement of Chicago’s most feared mob boss…

Murder & Mayhem in Paradise: A collection of books benefiting cancer screening (Writing out Cancer Book 1) Kindle Edition
by Steven Becker (Author), Wayne Stinnett (Author), Dawn Lee McKenna (Author), Don Rich (Author), Michael Reisig (Author)
The official but erratic and unreliable newsletter of best-selling suspense author Dawn Lee McKenna
If you follow my Facebook page, you might already know that my breast cancer has come back. Last year, it was Stage 2. This year, it’s Stage 4.
It’s hard to describe what the first few weeks after my diagnosis was like, even for me, an alleged writer. I don’t have to explain it to many of you; you’ve had your own terrifying test results, or held a loved one’s hand as they got theirs.
I’ll be doing a video shortly to talk to you guys about my situation, and believe it or not, it’s not all doom and gloom, regardless of the statistics. But tonight I want to talk to you about a project called “Writing Out Cancer.”
This project was created by the wonderful thriller author, Steven Becker. A terrific writer, a genuinely nice man, and a cancer warrior. He’s been fighting prostate cancer, but he’s not preoccupied with his own illness; he’s focused on trying to prevent someone else’s.
I’m honored to be part of a four-book set that includes first-in-series from Steven, Wayne Stinnett, Don Rich and myself. These are the full versions of the the first books that launched our respective series, put together in an ebook that costs just $2.99. It’s also available on Kindle Unlimited. The point isn’t to make money, although all proceeds will go to the cause. The point is to raise awareness of the absolute importance of early screening. Each of us shares our own cancer story in the preface to our novels, not to elicit sympathy, but to illuminate the how vital it is to get relevant screenings. Ignorance is not, in fact, bliss. Ignorance is Stage 4.
Would you please help us to reach people who just need that last nudge to make a doctor’s appointment? Every sale raises the ranking of the book, and puts it in front of people who’ve never read or books and who would never otherwise hear our stories. I love you guys anyway, but I’ll love you for it.
I’ll get that update to you soon. Don;t worry, Stoopid isn’t going to disappear. I’m finishing up the third book in the Still Waters series, which will be out next month, then it’s on to the 11th book in the Forgotten Coast series. No doubt Boudreaux will be enchanting, Miss Evangeline will be crusty and Stoopid will be…..pretty Stoopid.
Hey, click below to grab this special boxed set, would you? I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of cancer and I’m in the mood for a fight.
I love you guys,
Dunkirk: The History Behind the Major Motion Picture Kindle Edition
by Joshua Levine (Author)
The epic true story of Dunkirk—now a major motion picture, written and directed by Christopher Nolan, and starring Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, and Mark Rylance
In 1940, the Allies had been beaten back by the Nazis across France to the northern port of Dunkirk. In the ultimate race against time, more than 300,000 Allied soldiers were daringly evacuated across the Channel. This moment of German aggression was used by Winston Churchill as a call to Franklin Roosevelt to enter the war. Now, Joshua Levine, the film’s official historian, explores the real lives of those soldiers, bombed and strafed on the beaches for days on end, without food or ammunition; the civilians whose boats were overloaded; the airmen who risked their lives to buy their companions on the ground precious time; and those who did not escape.
