Shearers by Wayne Mansfield is now available in e-book format!

Stuart is eighteen, but more boy than man. When his uncle offers him a job rousabouting in the shearing shed during his mid-year break from university, he has no idea what to expect. He’s always been more of an indoors kind of guy.

He knows he’ll be working with some pretty rough men. Men who work the shearing circuit, going from farm to farm shearing sheep until there are no more sheep left to shear. His only hope is to try and fit in.

As it turns out, he has no choice. His uncle has arranged for him to share a room in the shearer’s quarters with one of the shearers. The very idea makes Stuart, who has always been unsure of himself and insecure, want to back out of the whole deal and return to town, to the comfort of home. But he doesn’t. He is determined to bite the proverbial bullet.

The work is hard and Stuart does his best. The shearing shed is a place where a man has to prove himself; to show what he’s made of. Does Stuart have what it takes? What will he learn about himself in the process? About life? About shearers?

Paul Alan Fahey on A Deadly Game of Malice

Paul Alan Fahey on A Deadly Game of Malice

I have to tell you I'm an avid Agatha Christie fan. Always have been. Always will be. I started reading her terrific mysteries as a teenager and was lucky enough, during the 1960's and '70's, to read every new book she wrote at the time her publisher released them. To the reading public, the latest Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple, released at Christmastime, became known throughout the reading world as "A Christie for Christmas," and I devoured each and every one of them.

Not one to delve too deeply into the psychology of her characters or spend an inordinate amount of time on character development, Christie became famous for her ingenious plots. And deservedly so. The idea for my latest Lovers and Liars novella, A Deadly Game of Malice, came from one of my favorite Christie plots in The Moving Finger: a rash of poison pen letters circulate in a small English village and a series of murders follows. Given this situation, I took two of my characters, Caroline Graham -- now six months pregnant -- and Leslie Atwater -- suffering recurring PTSD from the Blitz -- and set them smack dab in the middle of it.

Are the sudden deaths connected to the letters? Or are the letters a smokescreen meant to hide the killer's real motive for the crimes? As weeks pass and bodies mount, Caroline, with Leslie's help, must use all her cunning and put her life at risk to uncover a cold-blooded murderer -- a remorseless killer who continues to raise the stakes in a deadly game of malice.

I hope you have as much fun reading the book as I had writing it. Please let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.

A Deadly Game of Malice by Paul Alan Fahey

A Deadly Game of Malice by Paul Alan Fahey is now available in e-book format!

It's spring 1942. Caroline Graham is six months pregnant, overweight, irritable, and most decidedly bored with her "delicate" condition. She hates being tied down and resents her husband Cyril and her cousin Edward for being off on assignment and having fun while she's confined to the village. She grows more restless each day, and her good friend and confidant Leslie Atwater does his best to boost her spirits but fails miserably. What Caroline needs is a problem to solve, "something juicy" to challenge her mind. And, of course, that's exactly what she gets.

Be careful what you wish for.

First there's a rash of poison pen letters circulating in the village. Librarian Elspeth Hunter receives a letter, and is the first to die, presumably by her own hand. Other deaths follow. Are the sudden deaths connected to the letters? As weeks pass and the bodies mount, Caroline and Leslie discover a pattern that suggests something more sinister is at work. With Leslie's help, Caroline must use all her cunning and put her life at risk to uncover a cold-blooded murderer -- a remorseless killer who continues to raise the stakes in a deadly game of malice.

Quinn has a lot more going for him than a charming smile and beautiful eyes. He's more excited, hopeful, and enthusiastic than any human Carter has ever met.

Maybe that's because Quin isn't human.

As things get a bit more insane and a lot more unbelievable, Carter discovers there are some things you can’t stop, but that doesn’t mean you start giving up.

Samandra’s biggest fear is her past coming back to haunt her -- growing up inside a mapped “red zone” and her prison time for being an activist. To fall back into the lure of time and memory, Samandra knows, will be the first act that leads her astray. In order to win and maintain her power, Samandra focuses on her tight military crew, fending off attacks from another resistance movement called The Tea Traitors, and staying hidden from The Government.

When Riley Hurwitz, a young hacker and weapons maker, breaches Samandra’s military compound, she is taken prisoner. With Riley now bound to a bed and gagged, Samandra is determined to figure out why someone as smart as Riley has been caught.

The Tiger Whisperer by Belea T. Keeney

The Tiger Whisperer by Belea T. Keeney is now available in e-book format!

A man. A tiger. A tornado.

Jared Montaine owns a big cat rescue in Florida and faces financial pressures, getting over his ex-wife, and the challenge of suburbia creeping ever closer to his enclave for the animals. But when a tornado wrecks part of the refuge, Jared's worst fear comes to life: his Siberian tiger, Sultan, escapes.

It's a big cat handler’s nightmare: a tiger on the loose, confused, lost -- and hungry.

Jared races against the police, the media, and the hysterical public, all of whom are clamoring for the tiger's hide. He must re-capture Sultan before the cat is killed -- by traffic, by SWAT, or by a civilian who just wants to shoot a tiger. With fellow wildlife handlers at his side, Jared fights desperately to find and capture Sultan before the tiger injures or kills a human. Because that would lead to his worst nightmare -- having to kill the tiger he hand-raised from a cub. Jared’s commitment is tested -- to his animals, his refuge, and his belief that saving the life of even one tiger is worth losing everything.

It isn’t business as usual for Maelwine when a new family moves into Grave’s End House. With the old, great house standing untenanted for quite some time, being a house shade attached to it has turned the hours dull for Maelwine. He has no family to entertain him, no variations in his daily duty, which involves the rousing of shadows in every room when the sun goes down.

Things change when the Villar family arrive, however, and Maelwine is finally happily caught up in the comings and goings at Grave’s End. That is, until he notices Royden Villar, a young boy with a secret that depresses his spirits and touches Maelwine in surprising and alarming ways. The more Maelwine studies Royden’s behavior, the more he glimpses the other boy’s heart, and, suddenly, new paths reveal themselves to Maelwine -- paths that are as muddy as they are dangerous.

As a house shade, Maelwine is immortal and enjoys certain benefits that can only come with immortality. Not once has he questioned his situation. It is, after all, as Nature has always intended. But with Royden’s arrival, Maelwine’s forced to face difficult answers to unsettling questions about the nature of his existence.

He’s only a house shade, after all, and nothing more. He doesn’t have a heart, doesn’t feel loneliness in the shadows of his world. Things should be easy, but Royden Villar has set certain wheels in motion, and there’s simply no turning back.
