Book II
41Lmxo6fblL._UX290_.jpg

World famous musician Andrew Morgan serves a prison sentence for killing his wife, Sandy – a crime he didn’t commit. His ex-wife Beth planted overwhelming evidence against him, so he feels literally and figuratively trapped in a hopeless situation. Reporter Jan Smith is compelled to help Andrew prove his innocence, but time is running out as every day in prison could be Andrew’s last.
 

Meanwhile, outside events will soon coalesce to affect Andrew’s life. Coast Guard Petty Officer Craig Hendershott rescues a Jane Doe from the raging sea, linking them forever. Handsome and powerful Spanish tycoon Ernesto Chavez finds Margaret Buchanon irresistible, and her appeal may entice this bachelor to finally tie the knot. The fine line between sanity and insanity will be tested as the two move rapidly toward matrimony.
 

Two of Ernesto’s employees, Maria Sarduchi and Tonya de Lugo, learn some of Beth Morgan’s secrets. They will either become good detectives—or dead ones. Ultimately, eight individuals come face to face in a powerful courtroom battle that rocks international shores. As the truth is revealed, will it be worth the price as Beth’s devastating wrath comes full circle?
 

Husband and wife Marcee and R. L. Corn team up to write the sequel to her bestselling novel Always Thaddeus. In a unique approach to co- authoring, this was written as two separate works, combined late in the writing process. The final court scene was penned last with each author writing from the perspective of individual characters. The Corns live and write in the mountains of North Carolina.

Always Thaddeus
Book I
AT Book Cover

Three individuals, linked by a common thread, pursue their own version of hope. They believe they can find it on the idyllic island of Owl's Nest. Each searches for hope through the others, only to realize they must find it alone.
 

Sitting alone on the funeral parlor's porch, Beth slowly rocks herself back and forth and back again. Alone in her misery, she frantically searches her mind for hope. Though there is a tombstone with her son's name of it, she believes Thaddeus is still alive. All she has to do is find him.

It is a stunning August afternoon when Sandy Smithson arrives on Owl's Nest. The smell of the sea salt and fish wrestle with and compete for her senses. Suddenly, feeling hopeful, Sandy is ready to move her stagnant life forward.

 

Running from his past, Andrew Morgan searches for sanctuary from the scars of life. He finds it on Owl's Nest with Sandy. But waiting in the shadows and hidden in plain sight, evil lurks. It moves its way through the streets, inside the cottages, and onto the unruly shores of this peaceful island bringing devastation and destruction. Owl's Nest, Maine, the respite from his past, turns on Andrew in a moment leaving him exposed.

Unclaimed Baggage

Alzheimer's leaps off the neatly painted sign, as if in neon, beckoning the driver to come on in.  Lugging eighty-two years of baggage, Martha begins an unforgettable two-year journey weaving in and out of her forgotten memories.

Based on a true story, this emotionally charged account is told in snippets of anecdotes from Martha's perspective, as well as, the real life experiences of her daughters.  Set against the backdrop of Alzheimer's disease, this riveting narrative weaves a beautiful tapestry of compassion, inspiration, and redemption.

Unclaimed Baggage is a beacon of hope culminating in an unexpected miracle that could only be achieved through God.  "In that moment, God's Spirit filled the daughters and brought His gift of love to them. They were allowed a rare glimpse inside God;s 'why' world, the secrete world of why things happen."  In the end, God was there with them...as He always had been.
