In The Works

The Legend of the Golden Dragon Chest
Quest for the Third Key

I am attempting a new direction for this next romance novel.  This will be a mystery romance about a legend told through the ages.  It originated from the T'sang Dynasty in China and it told about an old rich merchant who wanted to marry the young daughter of the Empress.  If she agreed he will give her all his riches which he has placed in a chest shaped like a golden dragon. She was in love with the Emperor's gardener's son.  Under pressure by her parents she agreed to marry the merchant.  However, the merchant suspected his easy victory and commissioned a goldsmith to fashion three keys, one to give to the young girl, the other he will keep and a secret third to reveal a puzzle box inside the chest.  When two keys were inserted a small opening will appear where he will place a jeweled necklace.  The third key when opened will reveal a treasure horde.  This he will only hand to his bride after the wedding, which never took place.  When the young princess received the chest and key, she and her lover conspired to steal the second key from the merchant and ran away from home.
This so saddened the old merchant that he left the area never to be seen again.  Some said he died and took the third key to his grave.
Our story begins with our heroine whose father once had a key but it was stolen and our hero who inherited one of the keys from his father.  She thought his key was stolen from her father's antique store.  The story progresses with both protagonists eventually searching for the third key when the golden dragon chest was discovered in an archaeological find.  When the chest mysteriously disappeared from the museum all three keys  became immensely important in order to prove once and for all that the legend is true or untrue.
This novel is still in the working stage.  I will be continuing with the writing during the year.

She became quite adapt in the industry, becoming manager in no time at all.

She is sent by her superior to solve a problem at one of their sites in the rugged mountain area of Verdee where the company is building a road for the copper company. There she meets Curt Rivers and immediately clashes with him on various decisions. She becomes suspicious of his reasons for siding with the Hopi indians who own the adjacent land, especially when there are questions of new copper veins being found there.

Books I have written

The Clover Chain

This is a Romance Novel, set in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What The Story Is All About

Jim Harrison, who owns The Clover Chain, a string of luxury hotels world-wide, handles everything wit expertise and finesse. He is a highly polished cynic and adapt at assuming control. But when it comes to children he is out of his depth. Especially when one comes into his life accompanied by a courageous and fiercely independent girl, Tracy Travers, not much older who is capable of putting him firmly in his place.

The Clover Chain is a page-turner filled with love, romance and adventure, with criminal elements bent on creating havoc with our hero's hotel business. There is misunderstanding, jealousy and a mixup that makes for a good story and, after some harrowing experiences, of course a happy ending!

In The Fields

in the fields

free and carefree on bare feet

bending blades to nod and stare

blosoms peep, shy, discrete

hiding clover here and there...

in the fields

golden dreams on eyelids hot

lazy flutter of butterflies

whispering winds easily caught

bending branches with their sighs...

in the fields

gathering blossoms of fragrant hues

under racing cloudy fleece

once intent on childish views

now just making memories...
