What an October!

To say my October was busy would be a gross understatement. Every weekend was filled with activities, I had something that required my attention nearly every night, I had to complete thirteen lessons for a month-long online class I’m teaching this month, and I was (of course) trying to write the next Clint Wolf book. In the middle of it all, I celebrated my 27th year of working in law enforcement, as well as the 4th anniversary of meeting Amanda, both of which occurred on the same day.

One of the highlights of the month was speaking to the members of Sisters in Crime: New Orleans, who are a great bunch of writers. Here’s a photo from that event:DSC_0253 A bit of news for those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook: I’m starting to release my books in audio. BUT NOT FORGOTTEN has already been narrated and is available through Amazon and iTunes, and JAMES 516 will be available soon. Over the course of the next several months, I’m expecting to roll out the other books in each series. Here’s the Amazon link and cover for the audio version of FORGOTTEN:Audio_But-Not-ForgottenAnd then, at long last, the fourth book in the Clint Wolf Mystery Series is finally available. Here’s the description and cover/link:

After a year of working as a tour guide in the swamps of Louisiana–and the day after a man’s body is found in a canal–former Police Chief Clint Wolf realizes he can’t stay away from law enforcement work forever. Ditching his paddle for a pistol, he rejoins the Mechant Loup Police Department, but this time as their chief investigator, and he works beside Police Chief Susan Wilson as they seek to solve the mystery in the canal.

While it isn’t odd to find drowned bodies floating in the vast waterways of Louisiana from time to time, it is unusual to find a body with six bullet holes in its back. This first case back for Clint won’t be a walk in the park, but a blue truck and a single piece of paper might be the key to everything. The only problem? The truck has seemingly vanished into thin air and no one can find the piece of paper.BUT-NOT-FOREVER_ebookI have already begun plotting the next book in the Clint Wolf series, which is titled BUT NOT FOR NAUGHT, and I hope to publish it by January/February of 2018.

As always, I want to thank all of you for supporting my writing and I welcome your feedback and comments. (I’ve had to disable the comments section on my website due to the obscene amount of spam, but always feel free to contact me by email at

Wishing you and yours a GREAT and HAPPY Thanksgiving!

Clint Wolf Mystery Trilogy: Boxed Set

I have recently combined the three full-length Clint Wolf novels into a boxed set and priced it at $7.98, so you get three books for the price of two. That’s over 245,000 words and nearly 800 pages of mystery, suspense and romance combined into one tight electronic package. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited or Prime member, you read for FREE.


Here’s what you’ll find inside the boxed set:


Embattled former detective Clint Wolf is the newly appointed police chief for Mechant Loup, a small swampy town in southeast Louisiana. Usually a quiet town, the tranquility of the place is shattered when a human arm is found in the jowls of an alligator. Once it’s determined the arm belongs to a reputable business owner, the race is on to find the man and figure out what happened to him. Little does Clint know that solving the case could unearth a plot so evil it would go down as the worst event in Louisiana history . . . and he might not live to see it.


When a woman is found dead on her doorsteps—shot through the heart with an arrow—Clint Wolf and Susan Wilson go to work trying to track down the sadistic killer. On the very next day, a second victim is murdered in his driveway (killed in the same manner) and it’s now a race against time to uncover the motive behind the killings and identify the murderer. What they know so far is that he’s a skilled archer preying on human targets, and they have no clue where he’ll strike next.

As though the case itself isn’t complicated enough, the district attorney has launched a grand jury investigation into Susan’s actions during a shooting that saved Clint’s life. No one knows exactly why the DA is gunning for Susan, but one thing is crystal clear . . . it’s personal.


No one knows why the district attorney is gunning for Susan Wilson, but Clint Wolf is determined to find out—even if it’ll get him in trouble. While he works to clear Susan’s name, his crusade is sidelined when a bar manager is murdered during an apparent armed robbery. The method of operation is eerily similar to those used by the ruthless gang who killed his family, and Clint might soon have to face down the demons from his past to solve the mystery.

Will Clint walk that fine line between good and evil, or will he abandon his principles to settle an old score? Whatever choice he makes, one thing is certain . . . it’ll come at a hefty price.

And, of course, many thanks to every reader out there who has read my books. Whether you liked it or not, I appreciate that you took the time to read it.


Cover Reveal for BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

I’m really excited about my next novel, which is titled BUT NOT FORGOTTEN and is due out December 6, 2015 through Amber Quill Press. This will be the first in a series of books featuring Clint Wolf. Clint’s a tortured soul who works as chief of police for a small swampy town in southeast Louisiana called Mechant Loup. He mans a four-person department that includes Sergeant Susan Wilson, a strong female officer who moonlights as a cage fighter.

When a severed arm is found in the jowls of an alligator, Clint and his team must work to figure out to whom it belongs and how it got there. I hope everyone will check it out when it’s available.
