The Antique Diary is as terrifying as your worst nightmares and as timely as today’s headlines.


When Susan Chapman buys a diary from the mid-1700’s, she unleashes a chain of events that leads to her being targeted by two hired killers. If the contents of the diary become known, the history of the Catholic Church will have to be rewritten.

The forces of evil are relentless, and Susan Chapman has learned this lesson too late.

In the middle of the night, Louise Jorgensen sees a bleeding naked boy running down the street in front of her house. She takes him in long enough to clothe him and find out his name and age, and then she calls the police for help. As Louise watches the Key West Police car leaving with 12-year-old Kim Lee in the backseat, she feels grateful that he’s now safe. What she doesn’t know is that the next time she sees the boy, all that will be left of him is his decapitated head.


Kim Lee’s death and dismemberment might have been the end of the story…but in Key West, the official city motto is: We Are One Human Family, and Louise Jorgensen and her friends take that statement literally. In spite of police cover-ups and deadly threats from the authorities, Louise and her friends are determined to get justice for Kim…but tragically, the price they pay will haunt their lives forever.


Based on a true event, it’s quite likely that Kim Lee’s fate will haunt you, too, and force you question everything you think you know about human behavior—the good, the bad, and the grotesquely depraved.





Louise Jorgenson is learning the hard way that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction—and in her case, the reaction becomes heinously unequal. Louise is kidnapped and tortured because she exposed serial killer, Jay Chandler, and his protector, Police Chief, Thor Thorstenson.


Key West is the southernmost town in the Continental United States, making it not only a weather hot spot, but also a steamy place attracting evil and depravity.  Often called a “hot place for shady people,” the shady people of Key West are committed to getting rid of nosey do-gooders like Louise and her beloved friends, the Rivers’ family.


A gripping tale of good versus evil, Key West Murders Two compels readers to not only turn the book’s pages, but also to decide where they personally stand regarding the warfare waging in their own lives. The question each reader will face is—“Will I just ‘go along to get along,’ or fight using everything I’ve got within me, for what I believe is right?”




Louise Jorgenson’s friends call her the little old lady who kicked the hornet’s nest. When Louise learns that her best friends’ entire family and their home are going to be destroyed by the Brunsley crime family, she tries with everything in her power to keep that from happening.


Her goal of taking down the Brunsleys seems hopeless. On the Brunsley’s side is the fact that their compound is impenetrable—it is located on an island surrounded by underwater mines and early-warning trip alarms. Armed mercenary soldiers and attack dogs patrol the grounds 24/7, and video cameras surveil the entire island. The Brunsley’s mansion has been reinforced for security purposes: a bulletproof roof, laser alarms, and a bunker Safe Room, which is bombproof.


And what are Louise’s meager resources to destroy the Brunsley home and island? Just a loving group of people dedicated to caring for each other and bringing justice to their hometown of Key West, Florida. Will Louise get by with a little help from her friends?




Prostitute Alaina Wentworth finally has her life in perfect order: a wealthy sugar daddy; an elegant Beverly Hills penthouse condominium; loving friends; and all the luxury items she can put on a platinum credit card. What could possibly go wrong? She finds out when an Earth-shattering tragedy causes her to lose everything and not want to go on living. But sometimes we need to break open in order to let the light inside. If you believe in—or just hope for—the redemptive power of love, then this is the story you’ve been waiting for. You’ll laugh…you’ll cry…but you’ll never be the same after reading Journey Home.
