JADE SKY is my debut novel. It is the mystery/thriller/suspense/crime category winner in the 2012 Novel Rocket Launch Pad contest.
It started in a jewelry store in Antigua, Guatemala when I learned the true tale of Guatemalan jade.
In JADE SKY, an 88,000-word adventure/suspense novel set against the backdrop of the Central American jungles, archaeologist Meg Denton is catapulted into the darkest realms of the illegal antiquity trade when her mentor is murdered after revealing evidence of the location of a three-thousand year-old statue of a were-jaguar: the Blue Jade Jaguar. His powerful killers, driven by greed and madness, will destroy anyone, including Meg, to possess the statue. But ancient spirits of the sleeping culture re-awaken to help Meg claim the sacred relic for the modern Maya and usher in B'Ak'Tun: the new era. Read more…
I am currently seeking agent representation for this novel.
LAST DAWN ON MACAW MOUNTAIN
The second in the Meg Denton archaeological suspense series finds Meg caught between the corrupt Honduran president with plans to sell the magnificent Copán ruins to amusement park developers and the exiled Maya Lenca royal prince who has returned and vows to stop it. While she fights to survive as a hostage, once again Meg is drawn into the ancient mysteries of the Maya after uncovering clues, buried for over a thousand years, which reveal a message meant for the modern world. Meg must draw on her unique skills to solve the mystery of the Hieroglyphic Stairway.
LAST DAWN ON MACAW MOUNTAIN is a work-in-progress; estimated completion is the Winter of 2016.
