If you wish, feel free to visit my Booksie page at https://www.booksie.com/users/glenda-norwood-petz-283150 and read free chapters of all my books.
The links listed below are for the E-Books and are in chronological order according to the date written. Wherever you see “formerly known as,” that means I rewrote it, updated it, and retitled it.
- A Requiem for Revenge (formerly known as Animus) – If you like witches and zombies, you might enjoy this one. The tag line is “the dead don’t always stay buried.”
2 – Ghost Girl (formerly known as Seeing) – What could possibly go wrong for 14-year-old DeeDee Olsen when she’s left with the ability to see ghosts after suffering a head injury? This novel takes place in my hometown of Pahokee, Florida. A lot of details in this book are actually true. For example, I personally suffered the exact same injury as DeeDee. It didn’t result in me being able to see spirits, but I sure saw a lot of sparks and birds flying around my head afterwards. By the way, the collision between me and the other player truly did knock me unconscious for a few seconds.
This is Book #1 in the DeeDee Olsen, Ghost Girl Series.
3 – Hurricane – This E-Book was narrated by Lorin McCraley. You may know him from True Blood, Rules of Engagement and Castle, to name a few. Lorin fell in love with this story and was so impressed with it that he adapted it into a screenplay and will possibly turn it into a movie. Additionally, the audio version of the book was awarded Best Suspense of 2021 by AudioBookReviewer.com. I’ll keep you posted on the movie status. I really don’t need to explain what this one is since the title is self-explanatory. The end results are what happens when people fail to heed hurricane warnings and advice issued by the National Hurricane Center. In the case of Boone Chadwick and others, they didn’t evacuate the island when told to. Then extraordinary events prevent them from being able to leave at all, forcing them to face a Category 5 hurricane head-on while trapped inside a beach resort.
4 – The Punishment Room – Touches on a very delicate subject – sexual child abuse. I know it’s a hard subject to read or even think about, but we can’t turn our heads and look the other way because it’s very real and happens more often than you might think. For 11 years, I worked in a juvenile correctional facility with specialized programs, one of them being for victims of sex abuse, and I’ve seen up close and personal the aftermath such abuse has on a developing child. As a survivor myself, it was difficult, but necessary, to write the story. And I’ll admit that I cried while writing some of the scenes. On a positive note, Joey Sheffield, the heroine of the story, was a victim. But more importantly – she’s a survivor with a knack for getting even with her money-loving family.
5 – The Children In the Woods (formerly known as The Other Me) – This is a sequel to Ghost Girl and involves an adult DeeDee Olsen Blanchard. This case involves her 7-year old patient who’s being haunted by his identical twin brother who he never knew existed. Seeking answers to help him, DeeDee uncovers a child smuggling operation deep in the Florida Everglades run by backwoods illiterates.
This is Book #2 in the DeeDee Olsen, Ghost Girl Series.
6 – Dream Weavers – If you love a good ghost story, you might enjoy Dream Weavers. The entity present inside Joan Buchanan’s new house is a whole different kind of spirit. It’s dark and evil, and it wants Joan and her kids dead.
7 – Apollyon’s War (formerly known as Thy Kingdom Come) – Nothing to see here folks, except the end of the world. Following Biblical scripture and other reference books, I created my personal view and version of the Antichrist, and how he slowly and deliberately destroys the world and humankind. This one isn’t for the faint-hearted.
8 – The Fall of Autumn’s Becoming – This book is a story of love, loss, grief, heartbreak, and sacrifice. Autumn Marie Jensen disappeared on October 18, 2013, only to return 11 years later with no knowledge of her absence. Nothing and no one is as she remembers. Her husband is remarried, her children are grown and want nothing to do with her because they grew up believing she’d abandoned them. She struggles daily to fit into a world where she doesn’t belong and tries desperately to adjust to her new life alone, although her remaining time in Kingman is limited. Autumn was returned home for a specific reason – to fulfill a life or death mission.
9. Welcome to Cowbell, Daniel Chesterfield.
Daniel Chesterfield is an experienced and long-time lawman who swaps his detective shield in Florida for a sheriff’s badge in Cowbell, Montana, a rural town with a population of 20,000. He’s taking over the Bear Creek County Sheriff’s Office Sub-Station, an agency with deputies who’ve never been officially trained, have no experience, don’t wear uniforms, and patrol in their personal vehicles. I’ll let the book description tell you the rest:
Meet Daniel Chesterfield, a 6’7” foul mouthed straight arrow with a trite sense of humor and deep love and respect for law, order, and justice. Trading in his detective shield in Palm Beach County, Florida for a Sheriff’s badge in the rural town of Cowbell, Montana, Dan is assigned to take over the Bear Creek County Sheriff’s Office Sub-Station. Doesn’t sound like much of a challenge for a lawman, right?
Except that none of the deputies have ever received any formal training, they have no experience in law enforcement, they don’t wear uniforms, and they patrol in their personal vehicles. Ridiculed by other departments and fellow law enforcement officers because of their ineptitude, Dan is determined to provide the necessary training needed to make reputable deputies out of them and bring respect and honor to the department. However, that won’t happen without comical incidents.
The competency of the department and the deputies is put to the test when the half-naked body of the daughter of a local, prominent rancher is found at Dead Man’s Landing, a section of Hanover Pass where Emma Cooper often took nature walks. A preliminary investigation suggests that Emma’s death was the result of a grizzly attack. Forensic analyses proves otherwise. Not only was she murdered, but the test results reveal that she’d given birth only minutes before her demise, yet there was no baby at the scene.
When Dan visits Flying Aces Ranch to deliver the news to Harrison Cooper about the death of his daughter, he inadvertently stumbles upon a second crime being committed against him.
Who killed Emma Cooper and stole her newborn son? Was it the same person who wants her father dead? Are the two crimes coincidental or connected? Dan’s investigation will lead him to multiple suspects, but only one of them is guilty of murder, and he’s closer to Dan than he realizes.
Solving these two crimes aren’t the only problems facing Dan. A nemesis from his past has followed him to Montana to finish a job he started months before – sending Daniel Chesterfield to his grave.
This is Book #1 in the Chesterfield Series.
