DESCRIPTION:

So there I was, enjoying those college years, drinking, partying, wearing the same clothes several days in a row. Cleaning my room meant throwing stuff off my bed onto the floor. Laundry was handled by the compression method. The weight of the clothes on top of the pile cleaned the clothes on the bottom. The sink had been full of dishes since the second day of the semester, and don’t even mention the bathroom.

Those were Man years.

No parents to yell at me, no wife to nag me, and certainly no children to provide for. I lived as our ancestors had, as a wild animal, responsible only for my own survival. I cleaned nothing, I laughed at responsibility, and I left the toilet seat up. I answered to no man.

So then why am I currently walking around my house, picking up Littlest Pet Shop toys while a potty-training two-year-old yells from the bathroom, “Daddy, I NEED you,” a twelve-year-old volleyball star wants to know where she left her court shoes, and a ten-year-old artist wants my opinion of her latest masterpiece?

(NOTE: Book 2, Once Again, With Blood, is now available)

Kyle Brightman–late of the advertising industry and soon-to-be-late of the 5th floor psych ward–has a job offer he can’t refuse. A new resort in the Caribbean is looking for an art director. Kyle soon finds himself on the Isle of St. Agrippina working alongside a beautiful copywriter with an icy handshake. Questions arise: Why does the resort management team sport spray-on tans in the Bahamas? How can the resort offer such cheap vacation packages? What does one do with vats of Astroglide? To get the answers, Kyle must first navigate a series of wildly unpredictable events with a cast of even more wildly unpredictable characters, including a seductress jungle assassin, her partially paralyzed talking Chihuahua, an Ivy League Rastafarian seaplane captain, Kyle’s ex-psych ward roommate, a former Haliburton mercenary, and a French tavern owner with a fondness for goats, all set to the greatest hits of the 70′s. Pablo Cruise never felt so right.

What would you give up to become beautiful?

“In the tradition of The Princess Bride (with somewhat less whimsy) and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, Smith’s debut is a fairy tale in a new world…. The twists along this charming road make for an enchanting journey.” — Kirkus Reviews

The Ugly Princess is an unusual fairytale that centers on an ugly, brave princess who teaches us the true meaning of beauty.

Princess Olive is not like most princesses. She is the last generation of Winnowwood, an enchanted people with magical powers, dominion over nature, and the ability to communicate with animals. They are a people as ugly as they are extraordinary, and Olive is one of their ugliest. Her face is covered in bumps and warts, and her own father despises her for her ugly appearance. Olive has lived most of her life confined to the castle, away from the public eye. But when war breaks out between her kingdom and its neighbor and her father is captured, Olive courageously steps up to help him despite his cruelty. In transit, she is kidnapped…

THREE DESPERATE PEOPLE FLUNG TOGETHER IN A FLESH FRENZY OF BLOOD-DRENCHED HORROR

Terror has left Skye Martindale muted and stunted for most of her seventeen years. Terrified of the dark Other that lives within her. The Other that must be suppressed and controlled. At all costs. Then one night an act of random violence unleashes a savagery so ferocious that she is forced to face who–and what–she really is.

Fear and grief have ravaged Deputy Sheriff Gene Martindale, leaving him cold and remote, haunted by the lies he has told the world–and himself–about his foundling sister. But now the lying is over and he has to protect his young son from Skye. Even if that means killing her.

For five long years Junior Cotton–the twisted sadist who slaughtered Gene’s wife and unborn child–has been a caged animal. Now he’s broken loose and he’s coming after Gene and his sister. To take revenge and to reveal the truth about Skye. A truth that will damn her for eternity.
