Welcome! I appreciate you stopping by my author page. If you’re new here, thank you for checking out my work, I appreciate it.

My novels have been described by reviewers as Literary Fiction, Suspense, Mystery, and Romance. Oh, and from time to time I’m tagged with the Coming of Age description also. Sometimes, all of those genres apply to the same novel. Please grab a copy of the free book that’s available on this page. That’ll give you an idea of the stories that I write.

And, if you’re a reader who’s enjoyed my work in the past, thank you for waiting.

I am back. After a five year break from writing while I created BookDoggy, a tool that authors and publishers all over the world now use, I have resumed my writing career. I have a new book written and it is currently in the dreaded revision stage. From there it will go to my editors and then I hope to have it published by the end of 2023.

I look forward to sharing details of my upcoming novel with you as well as a new book that I think will really surprise many readers.

It was me.
The invite you may have received to like or follow BookDoggy Books was indeed from me. It is not spam or a bot.
For the past two weeks we've tried to have BookDoggy's original Facebook page reinstated. We've clawed away at every avenue available to plead with Facebook that we abide by their terms and conditions. Although the conversation with them continues, we've decided to create a new page to keep supporting the authors who advertise with us.
That's why you received the invite to follow BookDoggy Books.
With the switchover to the new page, we'll lose over 11,000 followers and dozens of 5 star ratings.
It's been a tough, incredibly frustrating two weeks, but at this point we feel we need to start anew just in case we're unsuccessful in having the original page reinstated.
Thank you for taking the time to refollow and like, we sincerely appreciate every single click that we receive!

Print books have arrived. I'll be in touch with the very patient readers who have been waiting for signed copies in a day or so.

We took 5 or 6 snaps of this picture and Oliver photobombed me in each one. So, it seems as though he should get his Andy Warhol moment.

Is 6 years between books a long time?
Yes, it probably is.
I'm so pleased to let you know that my new book "One Minute Past Midnight" is now available from Amazon in eBook format.
Print copies will be available for order online in a few days.
I can't wait to hear what you guys think of it.
Oh, and thanks for waiting!

It's happening next week.
"One Minute Past Midnight: A John Drake Mystery" will be released.
Here's the working synopsis:
Two brothers visiting Ireland are saved by a mysterious priest. A shy young girl must fight her way out of her smalltown. A police officer befriends a displaced killer. And a native man with a gift of seeing into the future flees his village.
All their stories are connected as John Drake must come to grips with whether to reveal who he really is in order to save a missing child or continue living in the darkness.
The chilling final installment in bestselling author Martin Crosbie’s John Drake Mystery series (can also be read as a standalone novel).
