Though the members of the vast expanse of a family reside all across the world, patriarch and engineer Rick Adler and his wife, Kat, see to it—through parties, celebrations, and Sunday dinners at their Barrington home—that everyone stays linked.
One night, all is shattered when Rick, following his granddaughter’s birthday party, dies unexpectedly…

Miles away, in Providence precinct, even as his life begins to quiet down, Detective Stephen Bennett’s mind runs wild with images and information; each piece too detailed, too graphic, too close.

And digging for their lives…

Countryside Holiday: New Beginnings (A Warren-Bennett-Johnson Short)



Having dedicated herself to motherhood, Teri Johnson loves her life.
After forgoing the frivolity that ensued in college, the free-spirited eighty-seven-year-old that made England her second home ensured that Simone—the daughter she raised alone—had everything Teri could give her.
Now that Simone has a family and grandchildren of her own, Teri starts to wonder ‘what if?’
What if life had gone just a little differently?
And what if things with her first love hadn’t turned out so wrong?

Quinton Ruskin built a life for himself and his family that most would envy.
In his late eighties and long retired from work in London’s financial district, he passes the time working on the family farm, bonding with his children and grandchildren, and healing from the loss of his beloved wife a decade ago.
Despite his family’s constant attention and presence, he can’t shake the loneliness.
Or the distant thoughts of the woman he once loved.
But when a stroke of luck hits at a local teashop and Quinton comes face-to-face with Teri Johnson, his star-crossed love, he decides that the past won’t wreck their future.

“Good story and great writing. You can’t help but be drawn in and begin to care about the characters.”- Reader Review

The well-meaning and meddlesome Mr. and Mrs. Aden want nothing more than to protect their only daughter, Hannah.
After her childhood kidnapping in Somalia and a final showdown in Italy against the monster responsible, nineteen-year-old Hannah just wants back the life stolen from her.
She isn’t naïve like her mother believes. Frequent flashes of past terrors assure her that the healing process is far from over. At the same time, she’d hardly use her dad’s words and call herself “strong” or “brave.” That description belongs to Melissa Bennett, the woman who almost died saving her.
Melissa doesn’t feel much like the hero she’s being hailed.
While she is glad to have saved a life for once, the one she’d almost taken continues to haunt her dreams and stall her recovery.
Despite her good deed and continuous help from friends and family abroad and Kyle—the father of her little girl—she knows her days of freedom are numbered.
