Short Stories by a Paramedic

I have decided to write a series of short stories about calls Paramedics respond to. It will give people a perspective of what it’s like dealing with life, death, and everything that we do on a regular basis. . I’m planning on eventually making these stories into a novel. Look for the first one to come out in the next week.

Author Spotlight-What She Knew

Synopsis:

Fateful Night:

Did Marilyn Monroe commit suicide? Did someone get away with an elaborate plot to murder the famous sex goddess? On that “Fateful Night” in August 1962 find out what may have happened to her and why she was killed. Many argue that she was involved in way too many secrets from different factions of the world. She was a smart woman who could play the dumb blonde to attain her stardom yet she unwittingly learned of conspiracy plots and political threats that would not only end her life but that of the current president, John F. Kennedy.

In this fast paced suspense every major player of the early sixties is involved, from the world politicians, to the Rat Pack, to Hollywood, and the mafia. What if Marilyn Monroe had lived and what if what she knew could have saved JFK?
Fact or fiction? What if….

Darkest Day:

On the tragic day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the nation mourns the loss of a president who stood for radical change and whose charisma carried him through the masses with never before seen devotion. Kennedy’s determination to pay the U.S. back for his good fortune never wavered, with a presidency riddled in strife from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the Cold War and finally to the Vietnam conflict nothing was easy for him.

In this fictional novel, Kennedy isn’t on a world tour or even in Texas in 1963. Instead he is in the Alps recovering from back surgery, a ruse that he had planned with Bobby, and his double months in advance of the tour. With the oval office tapped and the ever present Bobby running interference there was little likelihood that anyone would realize this was not the president. In fact, no one did.

Now, the world believes their beloved president is dead, there is no going back for Jack. While the decisions are difficult, it is far better to leave his ‘death’ alone than to risk political failure for his family clan and ridicule for his young widow.

Kennedy must now take on another face, name, and identity. Who is behind the assassination? What was the ultimate goal in killing the president? Was it to topple the American government and take down the Kennedy’s with it? Find out in this action packed conspiracy novel.

It begins four years after high school graduation with Michael’s return to North Carolina after being medically discharged from the Navy. Michael’s dream of a life with Rhiannon changes when she chooses to stay with the Peace Corps in Africa rather than rushing home to be by Michael’s side while he struggles to overcome his wounds and restart his life. Maeve, his summer love from long ago, re-enters his life and a new dream begins to grow in his heart. But his new start is haunted by events that Michael keeps locked deep in his memory.

DREAMS ADRIFT is the much anticipated third book of the River Dream series. It begins immediately after the end of DREAMS CHANGE. In DREAMS ADRIFT, Michael and Maeve are about to renew their vows in the big, beach side wedding Maeve had always dreamed of when Rhiannon’s unexpected arrival threatens to derail their plans. Will Rhiannon be able to win Mike back, or will his new love for Maeve be stronger than his old feelings for his high school sweetheart? The fates once conspired to change Michael’s dreams. Are they now conspiring to set his DREAMS ADRIFT?

Faith Tested Update

I’m one happy writer right now. I just hit 30,000 words in Faith Tested. It’s coming along nicely. I’m hoping to be done with the first draft within the next week. Then comes the fun part, editing. I still have plenty of time to get this book whipped into shape for the Genesis competition. This will be my first book competition that I’m entering. I’m thinking the word count will be around 50K, but we’ll see what direction it takes me.

I’ve run into stumbling blocks on this book and couldn’t seem to find the right words. Then, I would pray about it and God opened up the words to me. I’m hoping that this book will serve as tool to show that with faith in God, anything is possible.

Well, back to writing !!!
