Nothing can stay the same forever. We get in
trouble in life when we think it can and will. Everything changes, or as
King Solomon said in the Bible and The Byrds sang in the 60’s, to
everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.
It’s not a particularly easy lesson to learn, or a fun one for that
matter. I learned it the summer between high school and college, and my
life would never be the same."
Will's life is changing so quickly he can’t keep up. He's moving out of
his parents' home for the first time, changing careers, making new
friends, and falling in love with the person he least expected. In the
process, he’s also learning a lot about himself. As if he doesn't have
enough going on, his life-long best friend dies in what appears to be a
drunken accident. But when Will receives a note hinting that it may not
have been an accident after all, he finds that he can't rest until he
knows the truth. With the help of Killian Kendall and his friends, Will
begins an amateur investigation that will result in even more death. Will
thought the biggest changes were behind him, but they had only just begun.
Reap the Whirlwind blends a coming-of-age story and mystery with a
powerful love story.

All Lost Things
Killian Kendall's life is changing faster than he can keep up. He's
graduating from high school, breaking up with his boyfriend, and starting
a new job with a private investigator. He's barely settled at his new desk
when his ex-boyfriend calls with a desperate plea for help. He wants
Killian to prove his new boyfriend is innocent in the shockingly violent

little knowing how complicated -- and dangerous -- things will become
before it's over.
On the home front, Killian's surrogate parents decide to buy a historic
mansion and turn it into a bed and breakfast. The house comes with a rich
history... and maybe a ghost or two. Killian doesn't want to believe in
such things, but he's quickly becoming convinced that something terrible
happened to the home's original owners. The century-old mystery both
terrifies and tantalizes Killian. In the end, he may be the only one who
can uncover the truth.

The Truth of Yesterday (2010 release)
“We like to think of life as a story -- complete
with a nice, neat beginning, middle, and end. Real life is seldom that
orderly. We often forget just how powerful the past can be. After all,
it's over and done with, so how can it affect the present? The truth is,
while it may be over, it is seldom done, especially in matters not
properly dealt with. It has a way of twisting our perception, our
feelings, and even our reality. Things we thought long behind us can
suddenly be very much before us.”
Killian is thrilled when his first real case takes him on a surveillance
trip to Washington D.C. -- and with his boyfriend Micah, no less! When
Micah takes him out to celebrate the successful resolution of his case,
Micah's past comes back to haunt them in a big way. Killian is stunned
when he learns the truth, and even more shocked to hear about the murder
of Micah's former lover, Paul. The truth threatens to tear them apart,
but at the same time, Killian is drawn to find Paul's killer.
Meanwhile, his old friend Judy has asked him to investigate her own son,

idea how right she is.
Entering into the perilous and often grim world of male escorts, Killian
discovers that things are seldom what they seem and everyone has a past.
