"The House's Money is an exciting and riveting read for general fiction collections, highly recommended."
–The Midwest Book Review

Playing with the house's money is a dangerous game.  Passionate, idealistic, young Matt Whiteside has just landed the job of his dreams.  Dressed to kill and running on pure ambition, he enters the ranks of mortgage-backed securities traders twice his age for one of the most prestigious firms in San Francisco.

Life couldn’t be sweeter.

But the roller coaster has only just begun.  Upon meeting Stephanie, an equally enterprising real estate appraiser, his dreams appear to be unstoppable.  But unbridled love too often hides the truth in its shadow and not everything is as it appears.

As he discovers the wild world of real estate investment, experiencing a soaring financial wave never seen before, Matt is welcomed with open arms into a seductive arena almost too good to be true.  When insatiable greed raises its ugly head, jealousy and betrayal follow quickly behind.  In a moment of brutal clarity, his world shatters with the realization he is merely a pawn in someone else’s wicked game.  Just as quickly as it all began, the housing bubble begins to burst and his dreams slip through his fingers as he desperately struggles to hold on to a world that never really existed.

LIQUID GOLD

2014 Indie Next Generation Book Award Winner

PRAISE FOR LIQUID GOLD

“A plot-twisting journey through the hidden world of banking, water rights, greed and murder… It is hard to determine which is more terrifying – the body count or the banking practices.”

– Wendy Schultz, Mountain Democrat

When water becomes more valuable than gold, some people will kill to get it.

Inquisitive, Matt Whiteside, stumbles upon a rats nest of discrepancies hidden between the lines of client 401(K) investments.

Complications mount when Matt's fiance, Stephanie, teams with him to pull back the curtain after she is hired to investigate a wealthy landowner with a similar agenda. The two find themselves up against a wealthy, anti-development rancher and a ruthless Russian immigrant who is not used to being told he cannot have things his way. With ownership of water rights as the ultimate treasure, Matt and Stephanie suddenly find themselves playing a deadly game of chess.

In an effort to dig up the truth, more than one corpse comes along with it. And the precious water, mixed with fresh blood, continues to flow.

THE MONEY IS GREEN

After losing his wife to an affair, along with the business he built, Jason Ballard is experiencing life at its cruelest.  Determined to get back on his feet, he takes a job with Shanghai-based solar company, Soltech, only to find a pit of snakes lying coiled just beneath the veneer.

May Chen, the seductive, industrious businesswoman and owner of Soltech, makes no attempt to hide her excessive wealth or shy away from her controversial opinion.  Although already very powerful, she yearns for more…wealth, status, and above all, power.

Leave is to the U.S. Congress to throw open the doors to it all.  With literally billions of dollars slated for “green energy,” May Chen stands boldly at the front of the line ready to grab as much as she possibly can.  And it is Jason whom unknowingly becomes a vital element in her treacherous scheme, realizing too late that his boss is a vicious adversary willing to stop at nothing.  If anyone should dare stand in her way, like a cobra’s strike, the results are quick and deadly.
