S emifinalist Best Indie Books of 2012, The Kindle Book Reviews
“A fantastic read from start to finish. Reminded me a great deal of the works of Robert Crais and Robert B Parker.”
“This book immediately drew me in. The wonderfully descriptive setting, the quick pace and story that promises to deliver a delicious thrill. Miss Collins has a way of weaving mystery, intrigue, romance and a touch of NOIR that is not often found much less executed this well.”
“A brilliant mystery novel…I eagerly await the return of the Zen Man.”
~Becky Sherriff, The Kindle Book Review
“What I didn’t expect were the touches of romantic language, as delicate and erotic as a glance by Humphrey Bogart from under his hat. I also didn’t expect the humorous touches in what is essentially one man’s life-or-death fight to save his soul, his business and the love of his life.”
~Bonnie Ramthun, multi-published mystery and YA author
“Move over Sam Spade, Nick and Nora; make room for a Denver who-dun-it, Colleen Collins’s The Zen Man. Brilliant and fast-paced writing. I couldn’t put it down.”
~ Donnell Ann Bell, Award-Winning Author of The Past Came Hunting
“Readers of mystery are going to love Colleen Collins’s novel THE ZEN MAN. It is a fast paced who-done-it that will keep you turning pages and guessing to the very end.”
~Mrs. Mommy Booknerd’s Book Reviews
“Not only do the pages fly by with the action and plot twists, but the characters will keep you guessing their next move as well. I was thoroughly entertained and can’t wait to read the next installment of this fabulous gumshoe novel!”
~ Wendy Hines, Minding Spot book reviews
Just as washed-up criminal defense attorney, life-long Deadhead (nickname “The Zen Man”), and current PI Rick Levine decides to get relicensed as a lawyer, he’s charged with killing one and ends up in the slammer with a half-mil bail.
Released on bond, Rick and his girlfriend Laura have 30 days to find the real killer. In the course of their investigations, they dig for dirt among Denver’s shady legal backrooms to its tony corporate centers. Dodging bullets, a kidnapping, trumped-up charges and the FBI’s unwanted intervention, Rick and Laura continue tracking key suspects who have motive…eventually learning that true redemption begins at home.

“I loved every single word of The Zen Man!”
~ Delores Fossen, USA Today Best-selling Author
“Rick and Laura are incredibly charming and likable…and the book’s mystery is well structured with clues and red herrings doled out steadily to move the plot along and keep things interesting… can’t wait for the return of The Zen Man.”
~Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White
“… excellent writing, a liberal dose of humor, a fast-paced plot, and a sympathetic, wise-cracking protagonist.”
~Nancy Wood, author of Due Date
“The Zen Man is an homage and update of Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles, a well-paced mix of banter, action, and New Age philosophizing.”

A Pandora’s Children Single
I have decided to pull five of my favorite stories from my Pandora’s Children collection and release them as $.99 standalone stories.
In “A Matter of Faith, A Matter of Balance”, an elderly religious leader has his faith tested when he is taken into custody by the sheriff of a small Nevada town. Will his arrest save the members of his cult from his rogue beliefs? Or will his incarceration result in the end of the world, as he predicts? (9,400 words)
Please note that this story has been previously published in Pandora’s Children Book 3: Death Bleeds into Life ($1.99) and Pandora’s Children: The Complete Nightmares Book 2($2.99), so if you have read either of those, don’t bother with this. But if you haven’t delved into the Pandora’s Children books yet, and don’t want to spend more than $.99, this is a good place to start.

She’s trying to forget the pleasure in her ex’s arms
He’s doing his damnedest to remind her
Fledgling entrepreneur Samantha Riverà is in charge of her own life for the first time and determined to keep it that way. She’s attempting to banish her call-all-the-shots ex-husband from her dreams, but it’s kind of tough forgetting the Zorro look-alike who’s willing to do anything for her, except give her the only two things she wants–another baby and his love. When their 14-year-old daughter Dani–who’s maintaining a shaky remission from leukemia–rebels, Sam foolishly seeks advice from her Don Juan ex, who, incidentally, could charm the knickers off a nun.
When Nicolàs Riverà returns to Redemption, PA, to help control his defiant daughter, he discovers he not only has serious competition for Sam’s affection, but Dani has a crush on a boy who is the last kid Nick wants her interested in. The boy is a horn-dog rebel who reminds Nick way to much of his teen-aged self.
Sam never understood that, to a second-generation Latino man, familial responsibility is número uno. She also has no concept of how terrified this reformed bad-boy and businessman is of losing her to another high-risk pregnancy. The death of their premature son devastated Nick, and his refusal to sire another child incited The Great Bedroom War that ultimately destroyed his marriage. Now, he’ll stop at nothing to get his family back–even if it means blackmailing his way back into his ex-wife’s home to become a greater presence in his sick child’s life–and, with any luck, Samantha’s bed and heart.

What readers are saying:
“I wish this book would have been longer it was so good. I didn’t want it to end”by Lisa
Clara Roberts has found herself forced to flee across country, pursued by a madman who seems to have access to every aspect of her life. Consequently, she is off the grid and under the radar when her truck breaks down in a small corner of Southwestern, Oklahoma, and she finds herself at the mercy of a local cowboy. While she knows that she will eventually have to keep running to stay one step ahead of her stalker, she begins to find herself drawn to this man. With his support she decides that her life is something worth fighting for.
Shad Brandt wasn’t sure what to expect when he pulled over to help out the girl on the side of the road, but it isn’t long before he realizes that she was a lot more than he bargained for. He knows that she is running from something, but he can’t quite place his finger on what it is. However, he cannot turn his back on this woman in need and when he opens his home and his heart to her he finds something else entirely. So when danger comes to lay claim to Clara, he finds that he is willing to sacrifice everything to make sure she stays safe.
“He reached out and ran the palm of his hand down her arm. She shivered under his touch, but she didn’t take her eyes from his. They had darkened again, and she could see the desire there and knew it was reflected in hers as well. Before she could think about what she was doing, she put her arms around his neck, drew his face to hers, and kissed him.
His lips were hard at first, but after a moment, they softened, and he returned her embrace. When his tongue slipped into her mouth she groaned low and leaned into him as a fire uncoiled in her abdomen. It had been so long since a man had made her feel this way, and she felt herself slipping into unknown territory.
For once, she let herself go.”
