Hear My Plea is set for release November 11, 2015.
We’re putting the final touches on the book and I can’t show you the cover yet, but here’s what Nora deals with in her third outing:
An ex-con, Nora Dockson has a soft spot for underdogs like her former cellmate. She got her law degree so she could rescue her ex-cellie and others who made bad deals with a flawed system.
So how did Wesley Mitchell jump to the top of her potential client list?
Mitchell’s no underdog. Man’s so well-connected, for years he evaded punishment for killing unarmed civilians. Only after the FBI and the Justice Department stepped in did a jury find him guilty of two hot-blooded murders. Mitchell deserves his 65-year prison sentence.
Unless the feds fought dirty to convict him.
Nora has to check it out. What she discovers challenges all she believes.
“[A] fascinating … series” — Stephen Campbell, CrimeFiction.FM

FBI Agent Dawna Shepherd is hunting a renegade NSA contractor who blew the whistle on US cyber surveillance of European leaders and was charged with espionage. Now, he’s emerged from his Russian sanctuary to testify at a European Justice Court meeting secretly in Poland. Dawna and her team manage to snatch her target and make a courageous dash through a December blizzard, but a ruthless pursuer is closing in. His goal: kill them all.
“Blown” was first published last January in the Kobo Special Edition of Pulse Pounders Fiction River anthology magazine. Editor and best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson called the story an “entertaining spy caper . . . very real and exciting”. You can buy “Blown: A Dawna Shepherd Short Story” from these ebook vendors:
An ebook edition of my latest Dawna Shepherd short story is on the way!
Drones appear in the first line of “Blown”, a short mystery story published in Fiction River earlier this year:
“Monday night at eight-fifty-five, Polish time, a covey of midget helicopters burst through the half-open clerestory windows in the banquet hall. FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd kicked into arrest mode.”
I thought that was good enough reason to post this terrific photo of the Janester, owned by long-time friend Bill and photographed from his buddy George’s quad-copter flying close by. In July, I’ll release an ebook edition of “Blown: A Dawna Shepherd Short Story”.
