The Rippling Effect


Second novel of the Spencer's Mill Series!

TWO BROTHERS, John and Eli Reese of Spencer's Mill, Ohio are torn apart in 1887 by John's betrayal and Eli's bitter refusal to forgive.

As John recognizes his wrong and tries to pick up the pieces of his life, danger threatens his family and obstacles block his path. His mother warned him of the rippling effect of his actions, but he doesn't realize the full weight of what he has done until Eli shocks the whole family.


The Rippling Effect is the story of the power of God to heal

hardened hearts and restore family relationships.

The Phineas Fletcher Mysteries


Phineas Fletcher is a  middle-aged widower living in Spencer's Mill, Ohio in 1887, retired but bored and looking for some excitement. We first met him as a minor character in the novel, "Teacups and Lies." In the sequel, "The Rippling Effect," he stumbled onto a new line of work: private investigator. The rush it gave him was intoxicating.

Now, in this collection of seven adventures, he stars as an inventive, humorous, but compassionate investigator who finds himself called on to solve all kinds of dilemmas he never expects.

You'll enjoy the danger, intrigue, and even romance as he looks to his faith for wisdom and protection.

As for you, the never saw that twist coming!
