On a routine delivery, courier Jaxy Thrie must ferry a priceless item—a Fabergé guardian angel once worn by the Empress Maria Feodorovna—to a Russian heiress in British Columbia. Things get out of hand when Jaxy loses the valuable medallion. He finds himself in fast trouble with the Romanov Guild, who accuses him of theft. It falls on Jaxy to restore the national treasure to the Royal Museum while dodging bullets from a greedy band of robbers, the Mounties, and the Canadian Beaver Lodge Assassins Association.


What is the hardest part of writing your books? Maintaining plot continuity and keeping the characters consistent with their unique personalities and voices from scene to scene.


What songs are most played on your Ipod? 20th Century music of all types. As a fan of fifties music, I made my protagonist Jaxy into a gifted rockabilly guitarist. I also play piano and score choral and keyboard compositions, so I enjoy listening to anything along those musical lines.


Do you have critique partners or beta readers? Certainly. They kept me going when I would flag in the effort or doubt my work. I also received valuable feedback from those acquainted with the diverse topics treated in the story, such as ice climbing, or horseback riding. As the book progressed, I leaned more on critiques from workshops to help shape the plot, write better dialogue, and develop the characters.


What book are you reading now? Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. A biographical walk along her own journey to publication, Anne's book on the highs and lows and ups and downs of writing is a terrific addition to any library of reference works.


How did you start your writing career? An English professor once tried to talk me into switching majors to Creative Writing because she liked my short stories. Years later, as an Aerospace Engineer, I got what she meant when my peers at work said my laboratory reports were so entertaining that I should have been a writer. While I'm not sure what this says about my engineering, it confirms what had been said.  Therefore, I decided to follow through on the suggestion and commenced to write a novel of my own.


Tell us about your next release. The Canadian Beaver Lodge Assassins Association leaves off with a few unanswered questions, so I could write a sequel. On the other hand, the story stands alone and doesn't beg for one, so I may launch out into something completely new.
