Instead of my usual Monday post, I'm doing something different: shining a spotlight on a fellow indie author/wonderful friend.
About the Author:
R. J. Davies Mornix was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario lived in Toronto for a few years, currently resides in the Sault. She has been writing since she was 8 years of age, (if you ask her mother she would say she was telling stories since she was 6) day dreaming, creating, developing characters, places and tales of woe. Attended Sault College, started out in Police Foundations and then graduated from Computer Engineering.
Constantly researching story ideas, conversations, and scenes in ratty notebooks, napkins and slips of torn coffee stained envelopes. Most favorite questions start off with “What if” … what if this happens, what if that happens, what would it be like if this was real? Or what if that was real? She likes reading theoretical physics books, science fiction and hanging out with her minions, husband Dave and two sons.
R.J. has just released the first book in her Maddox Files series, following the exploits and adventures of young Dice Maddox, PI. If you love those classic Private Eye novels, this is a book you'll want to get in on!
Maddox Files: Back to Business
A riveting jacked-in dreamy mind-bender
Dice Maddox a private investigator in Toronto. First case back after a four year hiatus … but could her first case back be her last?
Ryan Winters a confirmed bachelor walks into her office with marital issues. Mrs. Lily Winters has everyone except Ryan convinced that they are newlyweds.
Since coming back to the PI business, Dice has discovered her uncle who was her partner and boss first, was keeping secrets. His x-files cases were vast and strange. She had no idea he had these other cases and had kept them from her.
Mrs. Lily Winters fits right into that category. Dice soon discovers Lily Winters isn’t human. But what is she? Alien? Demon? And what does she want with Ryan Winters?
Here's a Taste:
An unseen battle was happening in the universe. It's a power struggle between good and evil. She chuckled at the thought. As the battle wore on, the lines between the two were getting blurred. Good was mucking up things and getting their hands dirty in the process ... real dirty. They no longer could hold their heads high and look down their noses at her kind.
It was becoming more of a battle between those with good intentions and evil ... at the end of the day, was there any difference? There was none that she could see. Yet, as a dutiful warrior she would trudge on for her team. Earth was another playground where its occupants were merely pawns in this drawn out struggle. Back on Earth, she inhaled deeply. Smelling them ... the humans everywhere, it was like a childhood memory. She had some good times here.
Power ... control ... these were the weapons of choice for her side. The tug-of-war raged on. Sitting in human form in a small cafe ... she mused as she kept a watchful eye on him sitting across the room from her. They sat in the same small restaurant.
Her target ... Mr. Ryan Winters, young, strong, handsome ... but more importantly brilliant. Catching him now before he became successful was a power play move that would pay off in the long run. Fragile ... the whole lot of them ... including Mr. Winters. She felt comparable to the wolf hidden amongst the flock of sheep in sheep's clothing ... mingling with them, smiling at them ... all the while plotting and planning against them.
On the outside, she appeared to be a very attractive female, and this time around she would go by the name of Lily Winters.
She spied her prize sheep across the room. He was keeping a watchful eye on a table where two young ladies were seated and deep in conversation. They hadn't noticed him. He sat alone, reading or pretending to read a book. The woman that captured his attention appeared attractive, average height, fit ... and her dark hair had the ends tipped blue. He waited until her friend got up and left, then approached her. He said something ... she laughed, then got up and left.
It was a wise move. Lily Winters was not going to let her sheep stray too far. No, no, no, she had plans for this one. A delicious grin spread across her red lips as she watched Mr. Winters pay his bill and head back to his office like the good little sheep he was. She mused at the thought of her delicious plans for him.
