Swash_ornamentDear Reader,

I envisioned Devoted as a romantic, sexier version of those old Rock Hudson/Doris Day films I grew up loving. You know the type. Handsome and a little shady, the hero plays a game with the heart of gold heroine only to find himself head over heels in love and backed into a corner of his own making. Business can be war, but love’s the ultimate prize in Devoted. I hope you enjoy reading Flynn and Amy’s sexy skirmish as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Faced with the extinction of the African Elephant and White Rhino in the wild, I decided to travel to Kenya to investigate. The result is my new suspense novel, White Bone. During my stay in Kenya I was in Nairobi when a terroristt bomb blew up an open air market, killing 18, and was staying at a safari lodge when a rhino

peabody-head shot

was poached less than a mile away. Hopefully White Bone not only keeps you turning pages, but makes you look at the world a little differently.

Send your email to [email protected] to be one the five chosen and be submerged among the poachers in Africa alongside John Knox as he searches for Grace Chu in Ridley Pearson’s novel, White Bone.


Dear Reader,

Imagine falling in love with someone you can never be with. Not a flesh and blood man but a soldier’s ghost.

It’s Paris, 1918. War is raging. Millions of men have died, millions more have been wounded. Opaline Duplessi, a young jeweler makes mourning jewelry for the mothers, wives, and lovers of those who have fallen.

People say that Opaline’s creations are magical. But magic is a word Opaline would rather not use. The concept is too closely associated with her mother Sandrine, who practices the dark arts passed down from their ancestor La Lune, one of sixteenth century Paris’s most famous courtesans.

But Opaline does have a rare gift even she can’t deny, a form of lithomancy that allows her to translate the energy emanating from stones. In her mind, she is no mystic, but merely a messenger, giving voice to soldiers who died before they were able to properly express themselves to loved ones. Until one day, one of these fallen soldiers communicates a message—directly to her.

Enjoy the book that’s my favorite so far of all that I’ve written.
