Deception, Blind Trust – ‘Deep Copper’

<a href="">   <img src="deception" alt="">Home</a>/">   <img src="w3c.png" alt=""> W3C Home </a>A compelling story of deception, blind trust and a quest for riches a man buried a long time ago. Forget about searching for pirate treasure or stolen art. We’ve all read those books.

Here, we have an ambitious couple settling in Northbank, Michigan, pursuing their dream careers and a peaceful life in the slow lane. Rhonda, a beautician and transplant from California, moved to J.P.’s hometown and began her own business downtown.

Nearby, on Northbank’s Main Street, a thief is breaking into businesses. A relentless thief, leaving no evidence in his wake.

J.P. is enjoying his journalist career, but, it’s not adventurous enough. As an ex-Army Ranger, a writer’s life is too tame for him. That is, until his best friend shows up with a mystery to be solved. A search for riches, hidden from a robbery long past.

A stranger knocks on their door, out of the clear blue, saying he knows of the riches buried nearby and wants to help. A deception or coincidence?

…how did it get there?”

My brother and I had an uncle who worked the copper mines on the Keweenaw Peninsula. During the late eighteen hundreds, that was the place to be if a miner was after the purest copper on Earth. Not much of this copper needed to go through the smelting process, it was so pure.”

So, your uncle buried some of it?”

Exactly. As the story goes, my uncle Robert would visit home sometimes, with containers full of it. After several trips, when he had enough to fill a luggage trunk, he’d fill it with the copper and bury it.”

I’m told it’s buried really, really deep…”

Could there be any surprises? Short answer is…yes.

You should meet these loving characters, visit this small, yet busy Midwest town. However, be warned, and be careful with whom you trust.

You don’t have to dig for ‘Deep Copper’. It’s on Amazon.

A Supernatural Mystery – ‘The Maples’

<a href="<a href="https://ebook cover"> <img src="The Maples home"> </a>/"> <img src="w3c.png" alt="W3C home"> </a>Extraordinary occurrences have the authorities scratching their heads in this supernatural mystery. With no substantial evidence, they’re on the edge, considering, maybe…paranormal activity. But, nothing is said.

Do they finally admit the deaths they’ve investigated are too bizarre to explain? Or, do the authorities accept circumstances as out of their realm of expertise? Science unexplained? A supernatural mystery of sorts?

It is said, outer space is our final frontier. Yet, right beneath our feet, there’s more to be discovered…and studied. Another world resides there. Inside the Earth, living in the delicate topsoil and deeper. Its inhabitants are as varied as the extreme Midwest seasons. Albeit, too overwhelming to count.

Subterranean inhabitants devour and manufacture their own nourishment, surviving together. Coexisting with their own instincts and leave no evidence behind.

Excerpt from ‘The Maples’:

Barnes shoved his plate of food away, looking seriously troubled…almost sick. He was staring down the napkin holder in the center of the table, not moving a muscle, until Jacobs nudged him.

Sheriff? What gives? What did the medical examiner say?”

Um. You folks should finish your breakfast first.”

I’m done,” Jill and Sammy said, in unison.

Me, too,” Jacobs replied.

Okay, I’ll tell you, but I can’t believe it. And, by God, you keep this under wraps!” He hissed. “Is that clear? How the hell this happened to these two fine people, well, how can it be explained?”

Sammy spoke, “C’mon, Sheriff. What the hell?”

. . .

Within itself, nature is a phenomenon, a mystery, so, we don’t know everything. But, for 99 cents, you might find out.

Nice Jeep, sweetheart. Let’s go for a ride.

I could see one punk had a bulge inside his jacket. Don’t know if it was a gun or another type of weapon. No…I’m fairly certain it was a gun. The kid next to him had a bulge, too. Filthy pervert.

You’re not going anywhere,” I replied. “Step aside and you won’t get hurt.”

Who’s gonna get hurt, Girly? It won’t be any of us,” said one of the punks, now behind me.


The two behind me, flanking either side had approached so close I could smell their breath. I knew where they all stood. Instantly and with as much force I could muster, my right heel kicked back and connected in that punk’s crotch. Just as fast, my right foot came down, enabling me to spin and connect my left forearm with the other punk’s jaw.

I heard a crisp ‘snap’, maybe a ‘crack’ and knew I connected with my target. Anyway, they both dropped in agony.”
