What Dreams May Come (A Paranormal Anthology)
The supernatural world doesn't confine itself to the days around All Hallows Eve, when the portals between worlds are open. Sometimes the spirits slip through and choose to linger. Sometimes they have never left.
Ghosts are not a topic of easy conversation, as the heroine in “Light and Shadows,” the first story in my short story anthology, “What Dreams May Come,” learns too well. And yet…the spirits will have their way. That cloying scent of magnolia where there should be none, a cat running berserk late at night, an image that watches us as we hover between sleep and wakefulness…Is it real or merely our imaginations? What can we do about it?
And, from a ghost’s perspective, why would we want to do anything? Bodyguard Victor Sun, the ghost in the second story, “The Guardian,” has never heard the words “Mission accomplished.” After his sudden death, he soldiers on, orchestrating the lives and loves of succeeding generations of the Li family, whom he swore to protect. But, can flesh and blood stand up to a ghost?
Can reality stand up to dreams? The title story, “What Dreams May Come,” begins with a recurring dream of ancient lovers that is sufficiently worrisome that Kate agrees to past life regression therapy. Is her financé Henry really the ancient warrior Hinto? If they are one and the same, is that a reason to end the engagement or for wedding bells to ring?

The Winds of Glenhoolie (A Romance)
The past versus the future. Professor and sometimes journalist Claire Agnew expects that debate in towns where wind farms come to call. On a winter assignment in Scotland, however, the contrast becomes starkly real. Standing on the battlements of the ancient Castle Glenhoolie, at the end of a fjord that has seen Viking raids and English garrisons, her commitment to progress is shaken as she imagines the historic landscape lined with the wind turbines she usually finds so sleek and sexy. Turbines aren't the only attraction of Castle Glenhoolie and the neighboring village, however. Broad-shouldered, long-legged Alec Kincaid is equally intriguing as he shares his local knowledge and insights into local wind farm politics. To Alec, Claire is refreshingly open, delighted in the village of Dunlorrie and the ancient buildings he disdains… until he realizes why she is asking so many questions. Feeling betrayed, he examines his feelings and his knowledge of Claire against his personal history. She, in turn, must come to grips with the demands the past make upon the present, as she considers the future of Castle Glenhoolie and her own future amidst The Winds of Glenhoolie.
