My novels include Detour Trail, a western, and Strike Three, my post-apocalyptic novel; and I’m delighted to have my audiobook, Sugar Time, out in a new edition as an ebook and a paperback; this edition includes all four Sugar Sweet time travel stories. (See below for ordering info.) And now one of my novels that has been sitting on an editor’s desk, has been requested by the editor (that is, the full ms).
