The Reef Roamer
   Jayme Haller embarked on a new career as a means of therapy after her husband died from a shark attack while they were scuba diving in the Caribbean.  As The Reef Roamer, Jayme did video travel-logs of popular travel destinations that included underwater scenes for divers and snorkelers alike. After five long years, her assignment took her back to very place her husband died and unknowingly into the arms of the doctor she blamed for not saving him.
   Dr. Mark Steele was haunted by the memory of a beautiful young widow with the greenest eyes he had ever seen.  Her husband had been brought to his clinic after a shark attack, but the man was already dead when they rushed him in.  Five years passed and now she was back.  Did he dare admit what part he played in her past and risk losing the love of his life?

   Book Two, continues the survival saga of Allexa Smeth and the town of Moose Creek. While the rest of the nation has begun the slow process of recovering from the devastating earthquakes of months earlier, the small town of Moose Creek is still suffering. The food bank and soup kitchen Allexa Smeth helped established to feed her community have closed, but the community rallies and finds ways to feed themselves, leaving Allexa the luxury of taking care of just her small family. Hope is on the horizon, but still out of reach. 
   Attacked by a vicious few who would take her family's most precious resource, Allexa Smeth fights back with her very being to protect her own, but it's only the beginning of what's to come. More earthquakes rock the nation and the perplexing sudden apathy of the town shocks Allexa into withdrawal when she realizes they are no longer heeding her warnings. The lasting darkness they are plunged into doesn't have anything to do with a light switch.

   Having spent most of her life spoiled and sheltered by her father, John Tiggs, a mining supervisor who traveled the world, Christine is ill equipped to fend for herself.  Climbing over debris filled stairs just to get out of the hotel she was trapped in was only the beginning of fighting for her very life.  Even once she got back home, Christine was far from being safe.

The Journal: Raging Tide (Book 4) ~ ​2015 Permuted Press
   The world was shaking apart and the North American continent was at the heart of it. An earthquake ripped the country in half at the New Madrid fault line. Shipping ceased and sent the country into a tailspin, with the small towns like Moose Creek suffering the most. Recovery came slow as the country pulled itself together, until another more terrifying quake hit, awakening the sleeping caldera beneath Yellowstone. The ash that circled the world disrupted weather patterns everywhere, blotting out the sun and stirring up massive storms.
   Allexa Smeth and Colonel James Andrews set out to find the rift that broke the Upper Peninsula in half. Finding the colonel's men was a priority, but Allexa and the colonel didn't know it would mean getting into more than they bargained for-and possibly more than they could handle.
