Introducing the Award Winning Techno-Thriller Trilogy: Contrary Warriors
Contrary Warriors: Opposite Sites of the Coin
It’s 2004 and the western world is desperate for real evidence of Iran’s nuclear intentions. With the accuracy of intelligence gathering under deep scrutiny, both the CIA and MI6 are ordered to deliver indisputable evidence and call on their joint taskforce, the Special Operations Executive. Tori Braithwaite, the SOE Commander, balks at the preposterous plan the CIA has dropped in her lap, although sending a team to Iran as First Nations cultural ambassadors is tempting! First task, evaluate the psychological readiness of the proposed team leader, Cleo Deseronto, a retired RCAF pilot, but before she agrees to lead the SOE’s band of Mohawk’s, Braithwaite will put her to the test.
This modern spin on American OSS and Commonwealth SOE operations sets three women warriors on a fateful collision course with an old-time CIA handler, the changing dynamics of today’s cultural norms, and the politics of being women in the good old game called Intelligence! The guiding principles that distinguish the USA, the United Kingdom, and Canada, are thoughtfully interwoven, introducing the First Nations, the question of loyalty, and issues such as Gays and Lesbians in the military. Warning: This fast-paced romp through the secret world of western spy craft, comes with high-flying adventures, mysterious players, secret locations, and the rallying cry…”Leave no man, or woman, behind!”

Before the team can stop the man and his loyal followers from setting off a natural disaster that will rock the planet, Lusty, the Royal Navy’s last Aircraft Carrier must traverse the demanding North West Passage and stop the rogue force.

Don’t Let Go
Unemployed university professor Tyler Marsh is pounding the pavement looking for a job. Disillusioned with academia, she’s aiming for an analyst’s spot in the private sector but after a year of rejections based on her over-qualification, she’s dumbed down her resume in a desperate attempt to get her foot in the door somewhere—anywhere! When Buffalo’s leading marine engineering firm offers her a low-level placement as a personal assistant, she’s sure it can’t get any worse, until she meets the woman she will be working for.
Chief Innovation Officer and wounded veteran Georgie DiNamico doesn’t want an assistant or anyone else bothering her. She has her work, her dog, and her nightmares to keep her company. Heir-apparent to her family’s engineering firm, a head injury suffered in Afghanistan has left her feeling too broken for anything else.
Georgie has no use for the helper that her family insists she hire. But when Tyler’s resume lands on her desk, along with a company background check listing the advanced degrees she omitted, Georgie sees an opportunity to add a researcher to her R&D team.
Tyler quickly realizes Georgie is not the damaged goods everyone sees. Thoughtful, forthcoming, and generous is Tyler’s first impression of her would-be boss and it alleviates much of her trepidation. The outrageous salary and benefits help too, but working with the woman the family sees as shattered looks like the least of her challenges. She recognizes something special in Georgie DiNamico, garnering trust, loyalty, and something more…something Tyler hasn’t thought about for a very, very long time.
Stay With Me
Despite dealing with family dynamics that can be one tent short of a circus, the future looks bright for Tyler Marsh and Georgie DiNamico. Deeply in love, the two are also deeply committed to the success of the DiNamico-Phipps Company of DynaTech, a leading marine engineering firm headquartered in Buffalo, NY.
Georgie’s steady recovery from the head injury she suffered in Afghanistan and the company’s survival from a hostile takeover attempt means the couple can finally concentrate on planning their wedding. Or so they thought until an unseen event propels their relationship into turbulent waters.
Lori Phipps, the President of the company’s Dyna Craft Yachts division is a master boat builder – and a master player when it comes to loving women. Until she crosses paths with someone unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Unfortunately, Lori’s past is about to catch up with her in the very slinky form of a not-so-casual hook-up.
