The Robbins are determined to get their money back—and get even.
When an arrogant and selfish 26-year old, Ken Paulson, inherited a large national jewelry store chain, he probably shouldn’t have fired 72-year old Wayne Robbins, a brilliant engineer who helped Ken’s father build the company. And he certainly should not have stolen Robbins’ retirement funds, patents, and royalties.
But, he did.
The need to survive forces Wayne to develop a brilliant plan. Traveling the country in their motor coach, these sweet grandparents devise and execute perfect crimes. But they must overcome unexpected challenges, conspiracies, intrigue, and crossed loyalties. Finally, they must face and out-smart not only Ken Paulson but also the people they fear the most.
This may not end the way you think it will.

I’ll also be making a few of my books free downloads over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out.
I’ll be posting excerpts from my novel, Renaissance. Here’s the quick synopsis first.
First: Renaissance is not about the Renaissance; it’s about a man—and a world—that undergoes a renaissance, a rebirth. This book is of a mixed genre but mostly an adventure, a thriller flavored with financial and political seasoning; it is tightly plotted and engagingly intricate, but interwoven with philosophical undertones.
What if you truly had the chance to go back in time to rewrite history and save the world from imminent destruction? What if your mission was to gain enough financial and political power to actually make a difference? But what if the power that gave you the opportunity had a competitor?
The immense oil tanker was traveling at 16 knots when its bulbous cutter crashed into the sliver of shallow water barely forty feet wide that separated the seawall from the deeper waters of the Bosphorus Straits. It shattered the sandstone barrier like it was hard candy and slammed into the docks directly in the center of downtown Garipce, driving the cutter into the shops on the other side of the street.
