A Thirst for Murder


Not all is well in Tacoma, Washington.


“There’s something out there.”

Those words from her brother, a detective for Tacoma’s police department, now course through Stephanie Hawthorn’s head as she’s held in the iron grip of a stranger. The karaoke music of the SandBar, just on the other side of the restroom door, had hidden her calls for help. Now she awaits her fate as she glares into her assailant’s eyes. 

But this is no ordinary stranger. 

This man that now holds her will forever change Stephanie’s life and introduce her to a world she had no idea existed. A world her own father and brother are a part of. A world where people are very much not what they appear to be. A world that she will become a key part of.

Join Stephanie’s journey of discovery and danger as she and her newly found blood-drinking lover frantically try to track down the terrible person…or creature...that is killing innocent women. 


Of God and Love - A Story of Stolen Letters

A significant departure from Elite's racy sci-fi adventures, Of God and Love takes place in the quiet town of Sondrio, Italy in the late 1940's. We follow a young Nun, Gemma DeLuca, on her trip of self-discovery.  Her world is shaken up when she unwittingly discovers a set of letters. Love letters.  

This discovery, along with the arrival of a handsome, but troubled American soldier, flips Gemma's world upside down and she finds herself with some very un-nunlike feelings. 

After the American disappears – and Gemma discovers a shocking betrayal by the convent’s mother -  Gemma throws everything she knows aside to go find what may end up being the love of her life.



David Cavendale is on cloud nine. Maybe nine and a half. His book series having recently been picked up by a major motion picture company and the paychecks have paid for a ridiculous new apartment overlooking downtown Seattle. He's ready to conquer the single world of Belltown when he's introduced to someone that changes everything in his life. A beautiful young woman with a dark and horrific past that continues to haunt her daily. But there is an immediate bond between the two - she has read and re-read David's books...time over time.

Swans, a short novel, tells the story of unexpected love beyond David's wildest imagination and a bond that faces the most dark of challenges. It is also the inspiration to John Mark Tucker's sequel to Elite, titled Time Over Time.
