About Alison:

Passion is a funny thing.  I inherited my greatest passion, the love of animals, from my grandmother, Naomi Holt She was an incredibly strong woman who was the first female in her county to actually wear… heaven forbidpants in public! She also understood animals better than anyone I’ve ever met, and she passed that love and devotion on to me. Like her, there has never been a time in my life where I didn’t have some type of pet close by. Read Full Bio

Cover for Credo's BonesCredo’s Bones, the fourth book in the Alex Wolfe Mystery Series is available at a discounted price during the pre-order sale. You can purchase it at Amazon or Or here at iBooks, Barnes and Noble or Kobo. To Detective Alexandra Wolfe, the human bone sticking out of the potty in the Scotty wasn’t any big deal. She needed to check out a very old bone in a very old camper…what could go wrong? It seemed routine enough, until she found a police badge buried in the camper’s holding tank. When she learned the badge belonged to her sergeant’s partner, who’d been buried with full honors—along with his badge—some seven years earlier, she knew she’d stumbled on a mystery that had been waiting years to be solved. She had some digging to do. She could feel it in her bones.

  I’d like to introduce you to Nathaniel Gauthier, a young mage who begins life a little awkwardly, but is destined for great things.

Nathaniel Gauthier, a young, scholastic mage, battles a wraith to protect his king.

He loses, and he dies.

One thousand years later, Prince Amelon and his sorceress princess, Laucwen, discover ancient texts on the art of raising the dead. Their kingdom languishes under brutal occupying forces. Their only hope lies in resurrecting the long dead Jancor, the greatest battle mage ever to walk the shores of Merigor.

Laucwen sends the magical call for Jancor and accidentally summons Nathaniel instead.

He studied transformational magic at the collegium and skipped most of the classes on warfare and battle tactics in favor of translating ancient texts.

He lost his one and only magical duel.

Now Amelon believes him to be a powerful battle mage and looks to him to fight the greatest magical battle Merigor has ever faced.

If you love heroes that come in all shapes and sizes, follow along with Nathaniel as he learns that being a hero means so much more than simply being the biggest and baddest Mage of Merigor.

Walking the Moors With Agatha

As I sit out on my deck watching the fog roll over the fields of my farm, I realize what a wonderful opportunity I’ve had to be able to write in such beauty. It seems wherever I am, I’m usually drawn outdoors to a porch or a patio, especially in the spring, summer and fall, when flowers are blooming, the bees are pollinating and the cicada’s are singing their songs. My writing seems to flow easily when I’m outside the confines of four walls.

To Live or Not to Live

We had several chicks arrive today. They’re barely three days old and already I can tell the timid from the bold, the strong from the weak and then, there’s this tiny little one that I have tucked up under my shirt because she needs just a little bit more warmth and...

Getting Kicked Out of the Story

I’ve been practicing a new technique that I learned from my friend, Harvey Stanbrough. If you are a writer, Harvey’s website is full of excellent material he’s written and collected on everything having to do with writing. He’s a great writer himself, but as a...

Different Strokes

Writing mysteries comes easily to me since most of my adult life has been spent unraveling true to life mysteries as an officer in a large metropolitan police force. Solving cases is really nothing more than methodical fact-finding and taking the time to follow-up on...
