Old Friends and New, Another Murder A Sheridan Hendley Mystery Book 3

A touch of nostalgia, a murder, and good friends. When a former colleague is implicated in his neighbor’s demise, Sheridan Hendley returns to Cold Creek to prove his innocence. Annoying as Max can be, she can’t imagine the quirky professor is capable of murder. Unfortunately, not everyone shares her opinion. Of course, it doesn’t help that Max threatened his neighbor in a public place soon before the man was murdered. Or that the victim’s drug shipments had a habit of turning up on Max’s doorstep.

I am a writer of contemporary and speculative fiction and artist of all things monster. I live to create new worlds and the people in them. Several of my books have been best sellers both nationally and internationally. I have also been a finalist in the LAMDA awards, the “Oscars” of gay literary works. I do my best to write original stories with powerful characters and emotion as well as a fast-paced plot. My goal isn’t just to deliver a good story but to take the reader into the story and let them experience the characters as if they are right there with them. While almost all my books have a romantic element, I will be the first to admit, they are not traditional romance. In fact, I’d like to think there is nothing traditional about them. And the stories I paint are done so way outside the lines of traditional genres. One of my favorite things to do as a writer is push the boundaries of what makes a story and to deliver the unexpected and maybe even change the perspective of the reader. My characters are more often than not, beautifully flawed, not always the good guy, and make mistakes. Their stories will take dark turns which, in the end, make the light at the end of the tunnel all the brighter. If you’re looking for something different, exciting, and unique, my books are for you.

When Marcel first allowed things to become physical between them, Jacob spent his money on the best
slacks and silk shirts.
Marcel didn’t give him a large allowance. The idea Jacob found a need to spend it in order to impress
him was pleasing, but not important. Jacob did not need fancy clothes to make him beautiful. Besides,
the fancy clothes had not erased his self-doubt, his thoughts of inadequacy, the secret fear he would
never, could never not be loved.
All of those things played in the way he moved, how he looked around a room, clenched his fists,
swallowed hard, the sweat on his brow, the jump of muscle in his jaw.
Marcel read these facts as if they’d been written in print. Just like he read Jacob’s past in the faint white
lines left behind on his body from years of mistreatment.
A man or woman of worth did not mistreat the lives given to him. Whether taken as a gift or sacrificed in
the flesh. They were meant to be cherished, each one special and unique.
No. Jacob didn’t need fancy clothes because you could not give more value to something already
priceless.

“Close the door.”
Jacob did.
The room was large enough to leave plenty of floor space between the king-sized bed and the wardrobe.
A full bathroom occupied the alcove on the right side. On the left, a set of windows.
From the outside, those windows appeared as any other in the house. But on the inside they were
covered just like the walls, ceiling, floor, and door, in acoustic paneling.
Even if someone stood right outside, a scream was nothing more than a muted hum.
All the pain, suffering, and hate festering in Jacob could manifest in ear-shattering pleas, and no one
would hear. Marcel had hoped to have emptied him of those feelings by now, but the well inside Jacob
was deep and reluctant to give up the terrible things it housed.
One day though, one day, Marcel would find a way to scrape the last of those festering thoughts from
Jacob’s soul and leave them in the sun to rot.
Not because Marcel cared, but because weakness was a terrible disease to be inflicted with. A sickness
no human should suffer.
Jacob exhaled a shuddering breath. The flush across his cheeks darkened. His lips parted. The bulge in
the front of his jeans strained.
But he would wait in silence, struggling to remain still, as long as Marcel wanted.
On occasion, it was hours.
Today wasn’t one of those days. Today, Jacob needed what Marcel could give him.

Habitly Has Your New Favorite Fitness Classes Online

Even prior to all this pandemic/isolation stuff I was trying to lose weight. I had started in a gym around September, not sure if I should have spent the money on a gym membership. I ended up loving it. The main reason was to lose weight but that goal became secondary and eventually pushed further down the list because the gym was helping with my depression and anxiety. It was helping me with my confidence. It was helping me to socialize a little more. Of course I was happy when the scale would move, even just a pound, but it became more about my mental health. I had more energy, I smiled more, the negative thoughts were becoming fewer. It was my me time.

I then got the confidence to sign up for a POUND fitness class at my local community building once a week. It was so much fun. Again, socializing more and kicking up my cardio a little. Sometimes I had to miss a class or two just because I didn’t have anyone to watch the kids or I didn’t want to ask anyone to so I just would not go. Then all this coronavirus stuff happened.

I struggled trying to find a routine for fitness at home. I still had to work but now I also needed to guide my kids through e-learning. I didn’t want to lose the progress I had made through the gym and fitness classes though. My husband got us a new treadmill with one of those e-training apps which helped BUT ultimately you’re either walking or running. I missed the classes and didn’t think I could strength train without my gym equipment.

Then Habitlyfit.com came into my feed the one day. I decided to give it a try.

I was impressed by the amount and variety of classes offered on their site. The ease of registering for a class. The ability to cancel if life got in the way. Specifically I had wanted to get back into yoga. They have a variety of yoga classes so there is something for all levels. But they also have Zumba, Pilates, Barre, Cardio HIIT, strength training, meditation, and so much more. I just found out they added BollyX classes which I can’t wait to try!

You can pay per class or get a class package when you realize how much you love the it! Classes run throughout the day.

You can even get packages to save even more with 10 class packages for only $35 or monthly unlimited packages for $80. That’s huge savings! But I can do even better for you.

Habitly is offering LuvSavingMoney readers 20% off 10 class packages or unlimited packages with code: 20ANG4

Plus Habitly is now offering a 7 day free trial so you get to try out the classes before you buy if you’d like.

Twelve-year-old Grace and her feline best friend, Midnight, have a secret: Midnight is a ghost. But then again, so are the rest of Graces’ friends. Since she’s the only person in hundreds of years with the ability to see them, the many ghosts of Tansy have flocked to Grace since birth. She doesn’t mind. She prefers the company of the dead to that of the cliquey kids at school. Grace is happy with her strange life, until one day, the ghosts tell her about the secret her town has hidden for centuries. There’s a reason there are more ghosts than living people in Tansy. Three-hundred years ago, a lonely witch cast a spell that mistakenly trapped the soul of every person to ever set foot in the tiny town. So when the spirits beg her to find a way to break the curse, Grace is eager to help. As she searches for answers, Grace makes discoveries about the secret her family hid for generations and a world of magic hidden in her own backyard. Grace soon realizes that if she succeeds in breaking the curse, she’ll lose Midnight and all of her ghost friends, but if she fails, everyone living in Tansy will face the same fate.

I’d never been afraid of ghosts. Actually, it was quite the opposite. I was more comfortable with
the dead than with the living. The many ghosts of the tiny mountain town of Tansy had followed
me as long as I could remember. Ghosts, unlike people, never bothered me a bit.
It was the living, with their cliques and their judgment, who made my skin crawl. Sixth grade
hadn’t been easy for me. Not that any year of my education had been pleasant. Let’s just say
that kids who see the dead weren’t exactly considered cool at my school. My outsider status
with the living was well-established: I was the strange kid who talked to people who weren’t
there. But the living citizens of my town were the ones who were missing an entire world. I was
the only one who knew Tansy’s biggest secret. You’re never truly alone in this town. Though few
people live here, thousands spent their afterlives here.
I managed to avoid uttering a single word to another living person for the first half of my last day
of sixth grade. Slouching in my chair in the back row, I hoped to go unnoticed by the other kids.
Less than three hours of school remained before summer freed me from their torment for eight
whole weeks. Most of the time, I didn’t mind my outsider status. I had friends. They just lacked
heartbeats. It was hard to be the weird girl in school, but I always had my cat, Midnight, by my
side, rubbing up against my ankles when some bratty kid tormented me.
Midnight was dead. He didn’t run in front of a car, die of old age, or get attacked by a coyote in
the woods. He had always been dead, at least as long as I’d known him. Midnight was a ghost.
