F ourteen Days Later was short listed for the Harry Bowling Prize 2008 and received a Highly Commended by the Yeovil Literary Prize 2009. It is a romantic comedy with a unique infusion of British and Turkish Cypriot culture. Written in a similar style to Marian Keyes, it is My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Bridget Jones.
When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend’s best work trousers, it’s time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse.
Helen’s life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question. The tasks are designed to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem but all they seem to do is push her closer to Ayshe’s brother, Kalem.
How will Kalem and Helen get together when she’s too foolish to realize that she loves him? How can he fall for her when he is too busy falling prey to her mishaps and too in love with his own perfect girlfriend? How will Kalem’s Turkish Cypriot family react when they find out?
Is it really possible to change your life in fourteen days?

W ritten by an L. A. County homicide detective and former atheist, Cold-Case Christianity examines the claims of the New Testament using the skills and strategies of a hard-to-convince criminal investigator. Christianity could be defined as a “cold case”: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs. Including gripping stories from his career and the visual techniques he developed in the courtroom, Wallace uses illustration to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity. A unique apologetic that speaks to readers’ intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity.

He had to make things right. He had to find the killer.
P.I. Duke Rogers finds himself in a combustible situation in this racially charged thriller. His case might have to wait… The immediate problem: getting out of South Central Los Angeles in one piece during the 1992 “Rodney King” riots and that’s just the beginning of his problems.
While Duke tracks down the killer he must also deal with the racism of his partner, Jack, and from Warren, the murder victim’s brother. He must also confront his own possible latent racism – even as he’s in an interracial relationship with the dead woman’s sister.
WARNING: WHITE HEAT is NOT for the easily intimidated! It depicts realistic violence, racism, adult situations and contains offensive language. Don’t read this book if you can’t handle it.
WHITE HEAT CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE BEST FICTION BOOKS OF 2012: Rosa St. Claire at Examiner.com just named White Heat one of the best fiction books of 2012, along with Megan Abbott’s Dare Me, Blind Night by Michael W. Sherer, Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson, The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling and a handful of others.
From Publishers Weekly:
White Heat is a “…taut crime yarn set in 1992 against the turmoil of the Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of the police officers charged with assaulting motorist Rodney King…. the author ably evokes the chaos that erupted after the Rodney King verdict.”
“White Heat” is a riveting read of mystery, much recommended.
–Midwest Book Review
“[White Heat] really caught early 90s LA, in all its sordid glory. And had me turning me pages late into the night. I think WH is up there with the best of the LA novels, but has an air authenticity that many lack. Look forward to reading Broken Windows.”
–Woody Haut, journalist, author of Neon Noir (Contemporary American Crime Fiction), Pulp Culture (Hardboiled Fiction & the Cold War), Heartbreak and Vine (The Fate of Hardboiled Writers in Hollywood)
“Expect the unexpected…in an action-walloping award-winner of harrowing twists and turns…”
–Gordon Hauptfleisch – Seattle Post Intelligencer and BlogCritics.org
“A gripping tale of prejudice and deceit, set against the tumultuous backdrop of the 1992 L.A. riots. White Heat is all the title promises it to be.”
–Darrell James, award-winning author of Nazareth Child
“‘WHITE HEAT’… gets you in a vice from its opening page, and never lets up. …Every page is on fire.”
–Jon P. Bloch, The Kindle Book Review
Even after the who-done-it is solved, the novel leaves you with the question that is still valid today, why can’t we all just get along?
