It's coming!


The Liberty & Property Legends Volume Five begins here...


'Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it
will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things,
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.' 

Henry David Thoreau


I am thrilled to report that Volume Five is on it's way, starting with A PLACE AMONG HEROES Book 1, Rise of Hope. Yes, that's right - Volume 5 will have its own set of instalments! Lots of reading, lots of adventure, romance and epic stuff is heading this way. As they say in the classics, stayed tuned... it's coming!

Oh, okay, here's the back cover blurb to get you started... 


Spring, 1885. The conclusion of Cheyenne’s famous murder trial brings with it a desperate aftermath. As justice is within reach, a suspicious fire inside the courthouse has created a dangerous set of circumstances, particularly for heart-broken sheriff Cliff Ryan. Foremost, a key decision regarding the trial’s outcome will test the resilience of the Alliance to the limit. 

Who will rise, who will fall?

Some face their prospects with fearless resolve, others with resignation. And while Luke grapples with an increasingly uncertain faith in a future he has worked so hard for, how can Jennifer rise above her past and a promise she can’t keep to find the closure she needs and deserves?

Out of the remnants of the troubled past, striving to find their place in a new reality, the heroes of the Alliance must brave the journey to where their destiny is calling them.

A PLACE AMONG HEROES Rise of Hope is Book 1 in the fifth volume in The Liberty & Property Legends saga, beginning where Volume Four THE HOUR OF EVIDENCE left off. Finding the strength inside yourself to be the hero of your own life just might be the most courageous thing you’ve ever done.


'Journeys often end up where they began.'


Sounds epic, right? It's also full of love and enduring friendship, littered with surprises, both moving and humourous, with conflict, pain and despair shouldered by the desire for faith and hope and that elusive 'pursuit of happiness'. And trains...  As I said, stay tuned :)

'Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.'
Jane Austen, Emma
