If Lupe Dávila and Javier Utierre can survive each other’s company, together they can solve a series of grisly murders sweeping though Puerto Rico.

And if they want to catch the killer, they’ll have to step into the shadows to see what’s lurking there—murderer, or monster?

Category Five: ISBN 9781250296122 – After the hurricane, some see destruction and some smell blood. The tiny island of Vieques, located just off the northeastern coast of the main island of Puerto Rico, is trying to recover after hurricane Maria, but the already battered island is now half empty. To make matters worse, as on the main island, developers have come in to buy up the land at a fraction of its worth, taking advantage of the island when it is down. Lupe, Javier, and Marisol are back to investigate a series of murders that follow in the wake of a hurricane and in the shadow of a new supernatural threat.

Author Book Cover 1
Hacker couple Jack and Rosie crack technology, but the newest device, the Phaethon, isn’t like other phones. The parts are junk, yet it can do the impossible. Through gentle prodding and data theft, they learn it’s powered remotely…by a living creature.

Author Book Cover 2
Mab is an unemployed feminist blogger with a philosophy degree, a deathly allergy to bee stings, and the real-world experience of a domestic rabbit. When Portland, Oregon is evacuated, no one thinks to look for her in her unlabeled apartment. She can still get news from the outside world for days. All the news is bad. The planetary Tarantella dance has started, and the world is shaking itself apart. Volcanoes and earthquakes abound. Taking stock of her supplies, she finds that her best survival gear includes a 49cc moped and clothing that wouldn’t keep a chihuahua warm in a Florida winter. Left alone in the city, Mab fumbles along and documents her post-apocalypse adventures through the lens of mankind’s greatest coping mechanism: Inappropriate humor. She learns from experience as she misinterprets survival tips, battles wild geese, steals cars, befriends a dog, and discovers the difference between instinct and cultural training.

The present … my website can be found at SkyeRun.com
The past…
I started writing when I was in the Navy. …there isn’t a hekuvalot to do on watch at 2:00am in the morning when the ship (USS Tattnall DDG 19, 1974 through 1977) is in port, and shut down, but someone has to be in the engine room.
Yes! I was a Snipe!
…and I may even go dig those stories up some day and see if I can come up with a valid plot for them.
After the Navy, I went to college. I have a BS … Bachelor’s of Science … not the other kind of BS … in Accounting, and an Accociate’s with Honors in Management. …having worked full-time and shifted the courses I could to the summer to lighten the course load. I put myself through the four years, graduating with only minimal loans, getting extremely little outside help. The GI Bill wasn’t paying out much at that time.
After that, life went on. I had a daughter. …who doesn’t read my books. But her husband does. So, that’s a semi-win.
I discovered the X-Wng Combat Simulator, shortly after it came out. I flew a lot. …I’m talking “incessantly”. AOL was still in its infancy and had an official X-Wing Tactics and Strategies board. They also had one for the TIE Fighter game, too. …which I got and flew. Those boards were a big disappointment, though. They only told the minimum of what you had to do to pass the missions. I was maxing them all out. So I started adding my own Help responses telling them exactly what they needed to do to Kill the mission!
After a while, a few of the online Star Wars clubs started chasing me. Greedo96 (who I wish I could find now) finally talked me into joining one. They had access to mission builder programs that would let you create the mission, goals, and briefing. And people could copy them into their games and fly them.
This … was … a … phenomenal development.
Things led to things. I created the Academy for X-Wing, and started running Grey Squadron. …I’d taken over for Aj Loki (who I also wish I could find), at the end of Tour 1. I did Tour 2, handing out the missions every week. “Here ya go” didn’t cut it after a while. So I started doing extended briefings in the emails that carried the mission files.
…which lead to bigger things. Tour 3 ended up something close to 180 pages, including the pilot reports. I had most of the club writing fiction. It was great!
I created the Academy such that it could have a section added for a new game any time one came out. I even ran the club for a while. I had a huge comprehensive rank progression and medal system in place.
But as things sometimes will. Stuff happened. My personal life got fouled up, as well.
I did Grey’s Tour 5 after I’d done some rearranging of my life. T5 is 600 pages of raw first draft fiction. …full sheet typing paper pages.
I stayed in touch with a few people. …one being Stacy Shofner-Williams (Of Shadows & Ash), who is also a published author, and has been for far longer than me. After seeing a number of my half-stepping attempts at fiction, she convinced me that I should jump into the deep end, finish up the stories I had, and publish them.
So … I did. …and it has ruled me ever since.
My books aren’t normal. But they are almost always received with enthusiasm, once people can adjust to the concepts. The one word used most in referring to the Horseless Horsemen is “Intense”. The most often used phrase is “very hard to put down”.
I, personally, feel that a Great Author can reach out of the book … grab your heart … and twist it any way they want it to go. …and the only option the reader has is to close the book. …which they will do, but unwillingly so. But that same author can keep calling the reader back to open it again and keep reading.
…that being said … That’s exactly the kind of author I try very hard to be.
