The Eternal Cycle Series
  1. Yesterday's Dreams (2001, 2006)
    History...Legacy...Destiny... Triggered by an act of self-sacrifice, all three converge upon Kara O'Keefe, transforming her simple life into one both magical and menacing. Overwhelmed by the expenses of her father's cancer treatments, Kara finds herself forced to give up Quicksilver, her cherished violin and the only physical link with her long-gone Grandda. Her selflessness becomes the key to her future. At Yesterday's Dreams, a pawnshop tucked away on a quiet New York back street, she discovers her true legacy, and destiny and danger both begin to stalk her. Confused by the sudden radical turn her life has taken...pursued by malevolent forces she does not understand...Kara O'Keefe must place her trust in a dead man she loved but never truly knew and the living myth that would teach her who she really was. Has she inherited the tenacious strength of her Celtic ancestors, or would she fall beneath the onslaught of uncompromising fate?

  2. Tomorrow's Memories (June 2007 release)
    With triumph heavy on their hearts, Kara O’Keefe and the survivors from the battle atop Yesterday’s Dreams rush to Ireland and Tír na nÓg, carrying with them a weapon feared by gods and men. There they seek solace and healing for their warriors, and a miracle for Patrick, Kara’s father, mortally wounded in the battle.

    What they find is a siege of ancient enemies. Carmán’s children have returned, united with a foe from the very dawn of the Tuatha de Danaan. Their combined forces threaten to be more than the immortal Sidhe and their human allies can combat.

    Still coming to grips with her magical heritage, Kara must once more face ultimate evil and help to save the immortal bloodline from which she is descended.

A PR woman stands as the lone force against the Apocalypse. In a hardboiled sword and sorcery setting, murders must be solved, sometimes by the most unlikely of officers. And that's just the beginning. Whether it's the last woman on Earth fighting to save what's left of civilization, or a flashy East Coast gal trying to save her gaming pals from a murder rap, this is the collection for you! Editors Henderson and Thomas have gathered best-sellers like the irrepressible Keith R.A. DeCandido, Bram Stoker Award-winners such as the gracious Linda D. Addison, along with a host of today's finest established writers and one incredible young lady making her print debut in this volume! So, whether your bag is fantasy or mystery, horror or science fiction, if you're looking for the best collection of stories about cool dames who are extra tough and don't take no guff, then join Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Linda D. Addison, Michael Amorel, James Chambers, Keith R.A. DeCandido, John L. French, Bruce Gehweiler, C.J. Henderson, Gerard Houarner, R. Allen Leider, Edward J. McFadden III, K.T. Pinto, Diane Raetz, John Sunseri and Patrick Thomas as they bring you an absolute treasure trove of the best, knock-your-stockings-off fiction written about the fairest sex in years!

  • Passing (2006)
    Anthology touches emotions that each of us, at one time or another, must deal with. The subject is delicate and as individual as the poetry that was ultimately selected for inclusion. Each of us have our own unique manner of dealing with the passing of a loved one, and each of us have our own poetic voice. The Authors are the voices that so eloquently and poignantly speak to us in "Passing".
