Of Genres and Books

I write in three primary genres, with other genres on hold (there are only so many hours in a day).

Christmas is coming soon in less than three months. I do one single Christmas book, Wish You Joy, sandwiched in my 11-book Savannah Sweethearts Christian romance series set in the coastal city of Savannah, Georgia, and on the beaches of Tybee Island, about twenty minutes on the road from Savannah. The series begins with Know You More, where we meet single pastor Diego Flores, as he juggles growing his church and figuring out what to do with Heidi Wei, potentially the love of his life.

Savannah Sweethearts spins off into Vacation Sweethearts, a set of Christian travel romance novels that take readers to various islands and mountains. This series begins with Smile for Me, a Caribbean romance in the Bahamas, where our reluctant heroine travels to teach in the summer art camp at Chapel by the Sea Christian School. There, she meets her nemesis, the assistant principal. While Book 1 is not a suspense, Books 2-4 are actually romance novels with a side of suspense.

One hour south of Savannah is are the Golden Isles, barrier islands on the coast of Georgia on the Atlantic Ocean. On St. Simon’s Island, I set my other beach romance series, Seaside Chapel, featuring church members who are musicians. This series of very long novels kicks off with His Longing Heart, in which world-class violinist Ivan McMillan finds himself struggling to make ends meet while supporting his aging grandmother. Crossing his path is a billionairess violin collector who is searching for the meaning of life…

Taking a spin away from the beaches, if you like suspense, I also write romantic suspense and near-future technothrillers. If you’re new to my suspense genres, start with my action-adventure Protector Sweethearts Christian romantic suspense series, which begins with private investigator Helen Hu taking a trip to Greece to track down her mother, who is trying to make amends for a past theft connected to the Amber Room. Along the way, Helen must trust a former art thief to help her rescue her mother.

In Once a Thief, we meet Leland Yang-Joule whose cousin, Cayson, kicks off my Binary Hackers technothriller series. All my series are related across genres, so you will see characters making cameo appearances in the same story world. In Zero Sum (Binary Hackers Book 1), Cayson’s life is in danger because of the nefarious implants in his head. FBI Special Agent Stella Evans does her best to keep him alive, but are her efforts enough?
