The body was not hers, and there was the possibility her life could be in jeopardy.
Not feeling well, Nadia Logermeyer, a twenty-eight-year-old dental assistant living in New York City, lies down to rest, only to wake up in the hospital…in Houston, Texas. In someone else’s body. With someone else’s name. And with someone else’s husband.
She has no idea how or why she’s now Ehrynn Rose, or why Ehrynn tried to take her own life. All she knows is that as soon as she’s able, she needs to return to NYC to find out what happened to her own body.
But that’s not the worst of it. She’s falling in love with Nash Rose, Ehrynn’s husband. Unfortunately, the couple are in the midst of a sticky divorce, and her claims of a body switch are only making things more complicated.
She’s not Ehrynn Rose, but it’s quickly getting to the point where she’d give anything to be her. It isn’t until she discovers the real reason why she tried to commit suicide that she realizes the danger isn’t over yet.

In Times of Violence is very special to me. Some parts of the book are taken from my own experiences as a young adult. This coming of age story needed to be told. It was thanks to S.E.Hinton’s The Outsiders, that In Times Of Violence was written.
I hope you enjoy the book.

In book #1 of this series, a little-known artist, living in a loft in Soho, is obsessed with his beautiful neighbor across the street. Ben observes her as she comes and goes in her daily life. She never fails to chat up the elderly neighbors sitting on the stoop. Too shy and reclusive to ask her out, Ben watches and then paints her, from memory, again and again.
Suddenly the police are at his door. His goddess, his dream woman is dead and the police like him for the crime. But upon further investigation there are other suspects that are just as likely to have murdered her.
Detectives O’Roarke and Garcia sift through the forensics, motives and physical evidence and at first glance it seems that all the evidence points to this strange, young artist who is obsessed with the beautiful actress. But as the detectives immerse themselves in her lifestyle and daily routine, it turns out that the victim has more than one secret.
They waited for him to returned to his room two of them, as the Caribbean Assassin opened the door one of them charged at him like a raging bull uttering words “You kill my woman, you must die tonight you fucking bastard.” The Caribbean Assassin stepped out of the way and with a well timed punch to the man’s neck sending him into the frame of the door. The sound of bone against metal as the man shoulder and side of his head hit the frame knocking him out. The other came from behind the door swinging a knife and nicking the Caribbean Assassin on the shoulder as he tried to get out of the way at the same time bringing his size 14 right foot kicking the man on his ass sending him across the room, enough is enough thought the Caribbean Assassin, he drew his weapon silencer already attached and put two bullets into the man with the knife
In Harry Heron: Savage Fugitive, Book 4 of the Harry Heron Adventure Series, Harry and Ferghal lead a band of fugitives of the Fleet in a battle against the Consortium on Planet Lycania inhabited by the very canine-like Canids.
There are three things you need to know about Harry Heron and Ferghal O’Connor:
1.) Born in the late 1700s, they catapulted through time and space from the gun deck of the HMS Spartan during a sea fight with the French in 1804 to the starship NECS Vanguard in 2204.
2.) Best friends since their boyhood in Ireland, they’re smart, savvy, and fearless, as loyal to each other as they are to the British Royal Navy and the North European Confederation Fleet.
3.) A juggernaut of wits, wit, and boundless energy, they show the twenty-third century how it’s done when it comes to outwitting the Consortium, navigating any type of ship, and harnessing artificial intelligence to their keen advantage.
In Harry Heron: No Quarter, Harry Heron and his best friend Ferghal O’Connor are cadets at Fleet College, eager to master their skills in preparation for commissioning to a ship. They’ve barely stepped foot on campus when they realize they’re targeted and sabotaged at every turn, but this doesn’t stop them from exuberant participation in the Sailing Regatta, the Gun Run, and the usual flirtations and hijinks of college life. Meanwhile, the Consortium, supporting the Johnstone Group, does everything in its power to keep them from testifying at an enquiry to expose Johnstone’s questionable research practices that nearly killed Harry in their secret laboratory on the planet Pangaea. No quarter given, none asked, Harry and Ferghal overcome every obstacle with youthful vigor and optimism, intelligence and training, and prove valuable to the Fleet as junior officers of the NECS Leander in the ongoing struggle against the Consortium.
A freak accident on board the HMS Spartan during a sea battle with the French navy in 1804 catapults Midshipman Harry Heron and his shipmates Ferghal O’Connor and Danny Gunn four hundred years into the future, landing them on the NECS Vanguard, flagship of the World Treaty Organisation Fleet. While Captain Blackwood and Major Heron sort out the mystery and determine whether the young men are alive or dead, Harry and his friends are faced with the challenge of learning new roles aboard a spaceship. Just as they have found their footing, they are called upon to assist the Fleet in a rescue mission on the planet Pangaea, giving them the opportunity to prove that their unique skills from the past are still very relevant in the far distant future.
A fantasy detective adventure, with characters from Camelot as time travelling detectives.
Merlin is a good looking woman and madly in love with Arthur and they elope, but that’s only the start of the story.
Tertia, Unita, Merlin’s apprentices, and Marlene, her sister, know what they want to be… detectives with a difference. Bored with the lack of opportunity in 5th century Camelot they start up the Temporal Detective Agency and use the great Merlin’s Time Portal to relocate from Camelot to the 21st century mostly because the cases are more interesting, but also because the toilet facilities are so much better.
Things start slowly until one Sunday morning Tertia finds herself replacing Nelson’s statue in Trafalgar Square, involved in the thefts of the Koh-i-noor diamond and the Mona Lisa. The Agency follows the trail to South Wales in 1734 where they come up against a gang of vicious smugglers and ruthless ship wreckers led by their deadliest and most unlooked for enemy.
Help comes from an unexpected source, but the Temporal Detective Agency’s first case could prove to be their last!
The 2nd in the Temporal Detective Agency series.
When Arthur’s sword Excalibur is stolen the Temporal Detective Agency is called in to protect not only Arthur and Merlin, but to stop a very clever and cruel person from destroying Camelot itself. To make things worse, this time the TDA has no idea who they’re fighting.
Marlene’s plan takes Tertia and Unita to Rome, Egypt and even to a meeting with Shakespeare, before confronting their enemy in the Coliseum.
But first, if the Agency is to succeed, Arthur must die…. and Merlin and her King have to agree. If they don’t, Camelot will be doomed and History itself could be changed.
That’s the trouble with swords!

Emotionally scarred and physically weary, Dwan is ordered to go forty-seven years into the past in a last ditch effort to find the one man who can help her fight the monsters created decades ago by a company called Lambruchet. Monsters that have since devastated mankind and the world.
Eli Voight has been battling the Lambruchet demons ever since the company had his father killed. As the first Troller, he’s made it his duty to bring down the creatures and find a way to permanently stop them. He’s skeptical of Dwan’s claim that she’s from the future. But her skill is undeniable, and her presence becomes an all-consuming passion for the man who had pushed aside any thought of a personal life in his quest to drive the demons to extinction.
Dwan never expected to fall and fall hard for the emotionally unapproachable soldier. Worse, she knew what kind of death lay ahead for Eli, which meant there could never be a future for them.
Together, they must fight to take out the monstrosities, or else Earth as it is will cease to exist. And the Earth that could be, Dwan’s world, will only hold a future of horror and hopelessness.

Orrora Dalca is brought in by the U.S. Government to identify and find this murderer…but there’s a problem. Orrora is hiding a dark secret. And although she’s met with the task of finding this killer, she must also hide that person’s identity from ever becoming known.

THE INNER LOVER
“To thrive, love depends on the imaginative use of solitude.” If you have been uncomfortable about the intensity of your feelings for someone, crushed because they don’t feel the same way, or especially critical of your partner, then you will benefit from this book.
Understanding why we are passionately attracted to certain people can lead us to the “Inner Lover,” a creative aspect of our own nature. The images, feelings, and fantasies that are aroused when we fall in love—in brief encounters and lasting bonds, in requited and “impossible” relationships—are the keys to hidden potentials within ourselves. In this book, Valerie Harms presents techniques of journaling, dreamwork, and imaginal dialogues to guide the reader on an adventure of self-discovery in which the powerful energies of love may be transformed into creativity and fulfillment.
Valerie Harms is the author of ten books and a creativity counselor. She has led writing and Intensive Journal workshops at centers around the country, plus Canada and Greece. She worked on several projects with the diarist Anais Nin. A graduate of Smith College, forseven years she was a project editor at the National Audubon Society.
