What a deal! Three acclaimed international thrillers in a single ebook for only $8.99—half the cost of buying them separately!

Join Casey Collins on a twisting ride through post-Cold War Europe as events sweep her off her State Department desk job and into action.

Here’s what my favorite ambassador wrote after he read the first book in this trilogy and understood that more would follow:

“12 Drummers Drumming is a dynamite action thriller. It kept me up well past my bedtime. I could not put it down. Had to find out how Casey Collins, its FSO heroine, thwarts a Libyan terrorist plot. Since I served in San Salvador with Diana quite a while ago, I could be biased in my favorable appraisal of her book, but I don’t think so. She writes in the first person, purporting still to be a Foreign Service Officer, working in the Secretary’s Office of Counterterrorism. Drawing lightly on her State Department background and heavily on a vivid imagination, her tale of adventure is gripping . . . all of this is lightly spiced with sex and heavily seasoned with violent deaths, mostly, but not entirely, of bad guys. All in all, the Foreign Service’s loss of Diana Deverell is a great gain for readers of international thrillers. Best of all, she is working on a new novel.”  Deane R. Hinton, Career Ambassador (ret.)

Released December 17, 2014: Cooking Up Stories: Favorite Recipes from the Oregon Writers Network

Cooking Up Stories

Writers live in a strange world — they tend to sit at their computers and make things up all day. Often, especially during the moments when writing in “the zone,” life outside the story ceases to exist.
But even writers have to eat. Since I often feed my fellow wordsmiths, I contributed my potluck recipe for Hot and Zesty Vegetable Stew, robust enough to please the carnivorous, but safely enjoyed by those who prefer other dining genres.
From Procrastinator’s Bread to Deadline Chicken — come along for an inside look at some of the top recipes that help keep writers writing!*
Everyone who worked on this cookbook, including Lucky Bat Books staff, donated their time, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Beach Bark, an organization of animal lovers who work with the Central Coast Humane Society for the benefit of animals in north Lincoln County, Oregon.
* Includes story excerpts and writerly musing
