by J.D. Hawkins
Look behind the scenes at the circus and see if YOU can solve the mystery of who killed the lion tamer!
The Great Rollo had enemies and dirty family secrets. Investigator John Nieves enters the surreal world of the circus, determined to learn if the lion tamer’s death was an accident or foul play, but a series of mishaps suggests that the Cirkys are desperately trying to hide the truth. In his struggle to overcome a childhood fear of clowns and to come to grips with his own search for his Latino identity in a hostile world, even attempts on Nieves’ life cannot thwart him from his obsession to learn who killed the lion tamer.

Kelley Kaye is the pen name of Kelley Bowles Gusich. Kelley taught high school English and Drama for twenty years in Colorado and California, but a 1994 MS diagnosis has (circuitously) brought her, finally, to the life of writer and mother, both occupations she adores, and both of which were dreamed of clear back at stories surrounding her Barbie and Ken.

She has two wonderful and funny sons, and an amazing husband who cooks for her. She lives in Southern California.
I’m a Magna Cum Laude Walden college graduate, a Russian immigrant to the US in ’94, and a fiction writer. My book is about a high school teacher who is haunted by confusing, and at times frightening visions after moving with husband and teenage son to Boston, as result of winning a lottery. A surprise meeting with a strange man at a coffee shop raises questions in her head, which a boy in her English class seems to have answers for. As they get to know each other, can the boy have the answers for the woman, and vice versa?

Devil’s Run is the 12th in a series of stand-alone mystery/suspense novels. The setting is the contemporary Missouri Ozarks. Deputy Richard Carter, his cynical partner Ron Guidry, and rookie Kit Kittredge (the lone female deputy in the department) investigate a series of murders by arson and uncover something not just criminal, but unholy (in a figurative sense).
Longtime detective Stanford Carter and his wife, forensic scientist Jill Seacrest, have always felt one was the yin to the other’s yang. Carter is formal, logical, detached and incredibly reserved. As team leader, he displays an unflagging commitment to duty, a keen sense of logic and strategy, and the poker face of a true champion. Despite his ardent desire to learn the secrets of the universe and its plan for us all, the introspective student of Zen demonstrates an extraordinary inability to understand himself or anyone else. Seacrest, on the other hand, is a scientific steamroller, often intimidating even the most seasoned veteran agents. Possessing a strong and fiery personality, her determination to find the truth often clashes with a quick and sarcastic wit, a fiery personality, and the tendency to leap before she looks. Together, they’ve made the tough decision to leave their home town of Boston to move to the Big Apple, where they have accepted new positions with the F.B.I. to help solve a string of murders. When Shania Deeprose joins the team, the overly enthusiastic, down-to-earth rookie from Alabama provides a spark that forges the immediate and unbreakable bonds of heart, mind, and courage. In this stand-alone mystery/thriller the team must break the biggest case of their careers while confronting personal and social truths that change them forever. Will they be able to expose a secret so old and far reaching that it has already begun to impact the very fabric of society?
