In this first book in the Neil Janus mystery series, University Police officer Neil Janus watches the new crop of students arrive on his idyllic campus in a caravan of Priuses and Volkswagens, unaware that within a week two of them will be dead and a third brutally assaulted. The isolated university on the Northern California coast conceals threats and secrets within its pristine redwood groves and eco-friendly halls. It's a fairy tale gone sour, and when an earthquake uncovers a clue to the fate of a lost student, Neil must dig into his own past to find the killer, a predator schooled in poetry, brutality, and murder.
Alexandria wanted to be an astronomer. Arty was a budding Mad Scientist. And together they looked forward to seventh grade. But first they had to solve the mystery of the big old house next door, endure a potentially humiliating pool party, and survive one of the goofiest summers their town had seen in years.
Summer and Smoke is a story of flying video cameras, marching vegetables, a rocket-powered bicycle, and an endless stream of robotic Morris dancers that passed through town on their way to . . . where? Follow Alex, Arty, and Rocketman as they pursue a trail of white footprints and lightning bolts, all under the watchful eye of the town busybody. The story culminates with the Great Big Fourth of July Parade – with a huge conflagration lurking just around the corner!
I've just published a set of Middle-Grade/Young Adult mystery stories. I'd like to have some reviews. Go to www.MogiFranklin.com to preview the different books. I'd like to have any or all of them read by good readers. If you'd like a Kindle version or a paperback, send me a note at Willerton at comcast dot net.
The books are good fun for the 10-14 year-old set. They occur in the present day, but each book has a brief flashback to some historical-setting event that witnesses to a mystery that was left unsolved. In the present day, my hero and heroine are faced with some present day crisis that is intimately connected to the historical mystery. One must be solved to resolve the other.
All the mysteries occur in the Southwest, in real places that you can find on the map, and are authentic in the historical setting.
I am going to unpublish this book "which is my 1st. by the way" soon because of the -ve feed back that I hade when I posted a que. about the ways to promote. If anybody has another opinion, pleaselet me know. DO I UNPUBLISH IT OR NOT ?

My book is called Ashen and the synopsis and links to .com & .co.uk are below:
[i]In 2065 a nuclear strike was initiated that almost resulted in the annihilation of all mankind.
On the 11th October 2078, leaving behind their irradiated homelands and heading out into the night, the survivors of the Earth start the hugely ambitious and dangerous task of building a permanent colony on Mars.
The year is now 2102 and, against the odds, the Sanctuary colony and its inhabitants have thrived.
Meanwhile on the distant planet of Ashen 2, a team of scientists have made an unprecedented breakthrough that could herald a new golden era for mankind. When communications are inexplicably lost, a mission to investigate is quickly organised and amongst the team is Robert Hewson.
Hewson is an experimental physicist who is responsible for the ongoing terraforming project on Mars, and, more importantly, bringing his late father’s dream of the planet having a breathable atmosphere to fruition.
Hewson soon finds himself being carried along in a whirlwind when he and the team make a terrifying discovery that could have devastating consequences for all. [/i]
