Over the Sea to Die (Izzie Firecracker #3)

Is paradise worth dying for?
Izzie, a professional counsellor,  meets a hot Highlander with a problem. A close family friend used to a fun-loving party girl but now spends her days on a windswept rocky shore, Bible in hand. Eager to help her newfound hunk in a kilt while exploring their budding romance, Izzie agrees to visit his family's Scottish castle to help.

At first, Izzie thinks it's just loneliness and depression. But she soon encounters darker influences, including a crazy ghost and a murderous husband.  Then she and her client receive death threats written in real blood.

What began as a romantic getaway with a slice of professional help on the side becomes a toe-curling (not in a good way) investigation to find out what's going on before one of them winds up feeding the fishies.

The Christmas Castle Ghost (Izzie Firecracker #4)

It's nearly Christmas...
Izzie Firecracker is dreaming of a hot sexy holiday in Bora Bora when her new husband summons her to the Scottish Highlands. The family business, a castle hotel on the Isle of Scree, is short on funds and can't turn down a wealthy and glamorous American family who wants the 'Full Scottish Castle Experience' – complete with ghost.

But there is no ghost. Or is there?
And none of the guests is intent on murder or embezzlement? Or are they?

What Izzie presumed would be a quiet Christmas is anything but, and she finds herself in a race against time to save the hotel – and a guest's life. 

The feel-good romantic romp, with a good sprinkling of dark intrigue to spice up the Christmas punch. (A novella of approx. 20,000  words)

Izzie Firecracker's Meditation Method (Self-Help #1)

Enhance your life, happiness and looks in minutes a day...
Some readers of the Izzie Firecracker novels were disappointed she didn't divulge her fantastic meditation method. Well, here it is, in Izzie's own words, the best thing she knows to avoid that nasty enemy called anxiety. It also gives her clarity of mind and more energy. When she teaches it to her clients, they look younger, and the lines fade from their foreheads...

It's a short book (about 3000 words), but the information is invaluable...
The author learned Transcendental Meditation in the early 1990s and Izzie uses a similar method, based on long-standing Vedic traditions passed down for many generations...
