The Whispering of the Dead

When Sophie Dilos endeavors to probe her family’s past, she is overwhelmed by the secrets and lies she uncovers. Yet, that brings her closer to Francesca, who she comes to realize is connected to her in more than one way. Their relationship grows even more complicated when Sophie, after completing her degree in Homeland Security in Israel, becomes involved in investigating the terror attacks at Francesca’s shipping company in Greece.

Sophie enlists the help of her colleagues to uncover the attackers. Unless Sophie and the talent she recruits are successful in unraveling the attacks, the dynamics of their team will be exposed to imminent risk of disaster. Soon, Sophie realizes she has three killers on her team, and the whispering of the dead—what she calls a minor abnormality that has followed her throughout her life—intensifies. What will finally quiet the voices, and who will survive the quest to find the killers behind the terror attacks?


Annette Watchworth has aspirations of becoming a compelling reporter, but life has other plans for her. After a disappointing start on her career, she finds herself behind her monitor composing unimportant stories. She spends ten years in anonymity but when an opportunity knocks at her door, she embraces it, unaware of the danger and heartbreak. She finds herself tangled in a web of deception, lies and a murder. All her hopes of reviving her career almost lost, and she is ready to give up until she meets Margaret Peters who is a major component to her investigation. Is Annette ready to accept the truth?

Truth and deception are both fascinating concepts that intermingle for all eternity creating havoc in people’s lives. Annette is one of them. She seeks the truth but only finds deception. Can she unearth the lies and juxtapose them against the facts of her investigation or will she be destroyed by malevolent players, drug cartels, and even Margaret Peters?

Margaret Peters is the General Manager of the organization that Annette tries to infiltrate and expose. She is reserved, inapproachable and cold. Yet, underneath her persona is someone different with ties to New York Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Agency. Her undercover is on the verge of collapsing when Annette becomes involved. Will she be able to derail Annette’s investigation or her deceit will be uncovered?

Good and evil are parts of humanity that will exist of all eternity. Margaret knows about it well, and she is a primal example of survival but everything inside her is dead. Will she be able to open her heart or her past will take this ability away?

Annette and Margaret are two people with two different stories, and unbridgeable differences. Is there a hope for them or their existence is predetermined to be lived separate? Is destiny a silly concept invented by humans or is it as true as life itself? Annette and Margaret will endeavor to a journey that will redefine their lives more than once, but they will eventually arrive to a destination where the truth is uncovered.

Sacred Grounds

Rachael O’Connor is trapped in the mortal realm again, and no matter how hard she tries she never accomplishes her goal of crossing to the divine end. However, this time is different. Rachael doesn’t proclaim her innocence in front of the judge as she has done in the past. Instead she embraces the journey to another era no matter how painful it is. In this journey Rachael battles dark forces that will produce heartache and pain, yet she is willing to sacrifice everything to be with Elizabeth. Is she going to find out the true meaning or will she be forced to assume another life when she faces the judge? One person holds the answers, but Rachael has to listen. Will she?

The Device

An elusive and dangerous serial killer is terrorizing New York. The murderer’s method of operation is baffling and grotesque. There seems to be a specific purpose for the killings, but no one can quite grasp it.

When two police detectives arrive at the first crime scene, their dislike of each other is evident, and they immediately collide. Fiona Sapiro, head of the newly conceived New York Special Force unit, urgently seeks to become involved with the investigation and help end the deadly assaults. Sophie Andrews, a detective from the nearby precinct where the murders occurred, rejects all offers of Fiona’s participation. Both women desire an end to the bloodshed and the capture of the killer, but first, they will need to put their differences aside to solve the crimes.

Over time, the killer becomes progressively more arrogant, and the carnage at the crime scenes intensifies. As Fiona and Sophie are forced to accept collaboration, their relationship deepens. Will they finally acknowledge they are a perfect fit, or will they run away from feelings that both deem perilous?

One thing is certain … the killing must stop!

Music of the Heart

Danielle, a New York media executive and owner, Melina, a Greek singer, and Vickie, a flight attendant, will unexpectedly meet, and their lives will change forever.

Danielle believes that the island of Santorini is the perfect getaway and where she hopes to find tranquility. All elements are there to grant her wish, the vastness of the Aegean Sea stretches in front of her for miles, and the rented villa is luxurious and minutes from the town of Oia where the most stunning sunsets occur, and where exquisite white homes with blue domed roofs climbing the mountainside. What she doesn’t expect is to lose her serenity within hours of arrival to t​he island. Nevertheless, she completely surrenders herself when she meets Melina who threatens to destroy her inane beliefs about love.

Melina is curious about Danielle, the intriguing woman she meets backstage after her concert, but she keeps her distance. Her life is settled, she has a fiancé she adores, and a career that’s taking off. That’s her destiny, yet, a brief moment, a tiny nanosecond changed everything. Her path is crossed, and she is too late to change course. She collides with her destiny, the perfect mate who is right in front of her. Can she make a choice that is truthful to her heart or is she going to allow accusations and lies destroy her better judgment?

Vickie stands between the two lovers claiming Melina’s heart when the dark secrets and lies are exposed. Is Melina going to give in to the gorgeous flight attendant or will her heart be taken by Danielle? In a moment of hurt and disbelief Melina takes the wrong path.

Yet, music cures broken hearts, music mends broken souls. Or so Melina believes.


Rachael O’Connor is a repeat offender in the mortal realm, and no matter how hard she tries she never accomplishes her goal of crossing the divine end. She is sent to different eras to correct her sinister and cruel human behavior. Nevertheless, she now finds herself in the same predicament as many other times before, in front of a divine judge who scrutinizes her human behavior. Her proclamation of innocence is dismissed, resulting in yet another journey to another era. Is she going to learn this time what constitutes a decent human being, or is she destined to commit the same sins with Elizabeth who seems to be part of all her previous lives? This time may just be different in the open ocean on board a pirate ship.

The World That Will Never Be

The world where the straights are hated for hundreds of years is about to turn for the worse, and shatter to pieces. The involvement of Eliza X, a police officer, in the killing of a straight, Jeffrey Antinoro, becomes the singular event and the catalyst that sends humanity into a tailspin. A revolution erupts and Eliza is the sole cause of it. Nevertheless, her journey forces her to rediscover herself and find love in the arms of her professor Linda Pelc. Together they’ll try to redefine the human capacity of acceptance and denounce a world that is full of lies, deception and hatred. Are they going to save the straights or are the forces that seek their demise stronger? Who is going to be victorious when the revolution erupts between the gays and straights? Is the fiber of humanity saved at last or will the dark powers of prejudice and hate prevail?

Resist and Triumph

As 2017 opened, the United States took several steps back in the progress toward equality. In response, a group of authors has stepped up to offer positive stories of hope and love. In an effort to help fight and support those groups who are facing even greater challenges, we wrote these stories to offer a small amount of aid.

Stories of hope, resistance, and ultimately triumph fill the pages of this anthology.

All proceeds of the anthology go to The Trevor Project and GLAAD to help fight the effects of the dark times we’re facing.
