In the 1950s, fifteen year old Bess Truly and her friends fight off an invasion from another world

I wanted to write a book for my daughter to read, something fun, appropriate, and had my name on it. So I came up with Bess Truly, a fifteen year old girl living in 1950s New Mexico with her nuclear physicist mother and pilot father. She and her friends live typical teenage lives in the open plains, riding horses, going out for ice cream, exploring their world. But when strange things start happening, Bess and her friends discover a threat to their home, and to the whole country. With the help of her mother’s invention and her father’s experimental aircraft, Bess takes on a mysterious invasion.

Bess Truly And Her Zap-Gun Rangers is written for both kids and adults. I describe it as something like if Nancy Drew met Radar Men From The Moon. Action packed, but still age appropriate, this is a great read for older kids and anyone who likes adventure stories.

Online Ordering

The links provided currently use and Amazon. Bookshop is an alterative to the Big A that provides both a trustworthy site to buy books, as well as helping to support independent book stores and authors, such as me. Bookshop uses Ingram, the major distributor to book stores, to fulfill the orders. Amazon offers the ease of purchase for its many users, and pays authors a high commission. As much as I would prefer you to order from local shops, I know that there is a need for convenience in purchases as well, and have provided links to both options. 

Please note that at this time, the Retro Edition of The Unmerciful Sea is only available through my site or through the single online retailer. This is due to its particular size and layout. I will be working on getting that book version available through Ingram soon. Nag's Head is only available through Amazon as well, for similar reasons. Both books can still be ordered by your favorite book store.
