Evil isn’t always learned… sometimes it’s IN OUR BLOOD.
Nearly thirty years ago, Detective Jake Hawksworth and best-selling author Drew McCauley were brought together by a horrific crime. Jake, still reeling from the unsolved hit-and-run death of his wife, and Drew will be reunited once again when a crime from Drew’s novel-in-the-making becomes a devastating reality.
Is the kidnapping of Drew’s son somehow linked to the murder Jake is investigating? Was Jake’s wife’s death really an accident? And could the person who has haunted both men for decades be responsible for these seemingly unrelated events?
As Jake races to protect Drew’s family, they find themselves on a collision course with fate – derailed by a series of breakneck twists and turns that culminates at an isolated, snow-ravaged house. It is here that long-buried secrets are unearthed and Jake realizes, to his horror, that his hunches are not always right. That the keys to solving his wife’s death and a heinous, decades-old crime have been under his nose all along.

I’ve been a “word nerd” for as long as I can remember. My mind is always in the “on” position, with new stories and characters constantly brewing. Right now, I have about a half dozen ideas for future novels banging around in my head.
In Our Blood is the first in a series of detective thrillers featuring Detective Jake Hawksworth. Jake isn’t superhuman. He can’t take on five guys at once, can’t scale buildings, can’t save the world from weapons of mass destruction. Jake is everyman.
I’m currently immersed in the second Jake installment, a murder mystery set at a remote writers’ retreat, called Little Red Herrings.
When I’m not lost in my fictional world, I’m traveling the real world with my wife, spending quality time with my two daughters, or rolling around on the ground with my dogs.
