Twenty-two-year-old Brittany Carlson has just been signed by Baez Productions to star in a film that everyone in Tinsel town is sure will be the next Oscar winner. Brittany should be thrilled, but instead she is terrified. Her life has been turned upside down and she is trying desperately to keep it a secret. Someone is stalking her and yet the police are suggesting this is merely a publicity stunt!
She is even more horrified when her Pulitzer Prize-winning mother descends on her home in the middle of a party only to find that cocaine is one of the guests.
Between the efforts of her world famous mother as well as Brittany’s two sisters, life begins to look as though it might just have a chance to get back to normal; at least as normal as any life in Hollywood can be. That is until the stalker makes a lethal threat against her mother and her sisters. Brittany is sure this nightmare can’t get any worse. Now, her whole family is in danger. How do they find this psycho and will they be in time?

BISAC: Fiction / Action & Adventure

In 1972, the political situation in Nicaragua is far from stable and Signe Carlson is worried. The corrupt dictator, Anastasio Somoza Debayle, controls the National Guard that acts as both police and army. The leftist guerilla group, The Sandinistas, is waging a covert war against the current regime. Mick McKenna and her daughter – Jenna Carlson – who has become one of Mick’s top operatives at McKenna International are both on assignment in Managua as are several other of Mick’s senior agents.
Signe’s sixth sense is in overdrive and when her daughters, Lia and Brittany, unexpectedly show up at her home, she finds out that her intuition was correct: Mick is missing. His plane made a forced landing in the mountains of Nicaragua and although his operatives got to the site in less than thirty minutes there was no sign of either Mick or the pilot.
Signe goes into action and within three hours of receiving the news, she is on her way to Managua in her corporate Learjet. She has a plan and she intends to find Mick. An old friend from her days in the OSS, Maria Dolores Díaz Aguero, lives just outside Managua and Signe knows that she and her family are highly involved in the politics of their country. Although Signe plans to commandeer Jenna as well, if anyone can help her to locate Mick, it is Maria.

Family and friends are gathered at Buckingham to celebrate Signe Carlson’s 51st Birthday. Mick McKenna’s gift to Signe is a month long cruise on their yacht, The Enickma. Where they would cruise is up to Signe and little did either of them suspect the deadly threats from both man and Nature they would undergo during their vacation.
From their home in Scottsdale, AZ to cruising the South Pacific attractions of Micronesia to a boardroom in Austin, TX, Signe and her family as well as Mick and his associates must work against time once the schemes of the man they call The Puppet Master are discovered and before he has a chance to turn his plans into catastrophic events.

Danny Meyers is a kid with a plan—he’s smart, goal-oriented, and the definition of a goody-two-shoes. So how does an A+ student get mixed up with the school bully? In the summer of 1995, Danny is about to learn that people aren’t always what they seem, that sometimes the best-laid plans fail, and that the ordinary events of day-to-day life can be important—even if you don’t think so at the time. Danny is on the verge of turning a corner and he won’t be able to go back. But what he learns after turning that corner, and a few more, just might help him make sense of things after all.

As young Petros maneuvers the hallways of the Hellenic American School for the Arts, it’s the ice cream man, who stops by at recess, from whom he learns the most. Just one year shy of making it into high school, Petros challenges the strict rules of his school while also trying to follow the strict rules of his traditional Greek home in a tough neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens.

When he finally gets the chance to go to the specialized high school his brother now attends, his hopes and efforts are challenged by all the authority figures around him, except for his newfound friend, Mulvaney.
