 PURCHASE MY BROTHER'S KEEPER (PAPERBACK OR KINDLE)

Millions of gallons of crude oil and the biggest brush fires in Florida’s history. This is the back drop for my new murder mystery entitled, My Brother's Keeper, the first in a series for Tekelius (Teke) R. Manion. Teke(TEEK) is sent home - near Sarasota - to deal with poorly disguised arson fires and the impact from the oil slick moving closer to the burning coastline.

When Teke finds the first dead girl in the deep freezer owned by his two long lost buddies, Danny and Ronnie, he knows the old adage is true, “You can never go home again.”

Dying Hard on Gold Mountain



Teri Lovejoy has Lemon Boy and the two Bobby's escorting a group of rowdy teenagers to the festival this year. Lemon Boy is also there to see the rapper TruLuv. The two of them just found out they are father and son, but TruLuv has refused to talk to him.

It’s time for the Nubian Winter Festival, an annual event for African-Americans and other minority skiers from all over the country! This year it’s at the first minority owned ski resort, Gold Mountain.
But Gold Mountain has enemies, and it’s not a black thing. It’s a gold thing.

 A group of locals have been secretly and illegally mining gold from the back side of Gold Mountain. With gold trading at $1500 per ounce, every speck of dust makes it worth the secrecy and the treachery, which includes attempts to buy the resort out from under Carlos DeBary, the savvy, sophisticated owner of Gold Mountain. 

 

When equipment gets sabotaged and dead bodies start showing up during the festival, the owner of Gold Mountain calls on Lemon Boy and the Paladins to get answers the police can’t find.  In the end, all the old lessons surrounding the greed for gold come true, because people are Dying Hard on Gold Mountain.

FOR CHILDREN GRADES 4-6

In 1897 there was a small tiger cub living in the jungle in Siam, an old country now called Thailand. She lived with her brother, mother, and 20 other tigers.

They were the Tigers of Eden from the bloodline of the first tigers who walked the earth.  As such they had the gift of their ancestors, the gift of speaking with the voice of man.

They were guarded by a group of monks who kept them safe from poachers who hurt animals for money.
 
One day the poachers found them and chased them into the jungle. The tiger cub was lost from her family but saved by the crew of the American Clipper Ship - The Solaris!

The cub's name was Sasha, and this is her adventure.  The Legend of the Tigris!.
