    Making Monsters: First Man Adam

    When Adam Street arrives in the small desert town of Burgundy on his Harley, he likes it and decides to stay. It seems as good a place as any to try to escape his past. Adam is the result of a secret government-run genetic experiment. He was born to the world with some rare qualities; among them supernatural strength and speed, including heightened natural senses. When he was old enough to understand that his purpose in life was to take lives, he wanted no part of it and escaped the scientific c facility (The Campus) that held him. As Adam establishes himself in Burgundy, he begins to build a new life, with new purpose, and good friends. But his creators want him back and will stop at nothing to regain their investment, sending an elite team of agents to retrieve him. The townspeople have other ideas and are willing to fight to see that he remains at liberty. In this novel, a genetically engineered being with exceptional powers wants to live a normal life. He settles in a small town of good people in hopes of building a new life – until his creators track him down.

  • Nanny in Prada

    Nanny In Prada

    She wore shiny red spiked open toed extremely high heels. I guess to look taller than her five-foot
    frame. These shoes not acceptable for work attire and would be destructive if someone stepped on
    your foot or used them as a weapon. However, this endearing woman who came to help me raise my
    children was too impressive for me to notice. Her name Mnemosyne, how impressive a soft woman
    with a silky dress and a gentle disposition, I could not have wished for a better nanny than what she
    appeared.

As they attempt to settle into the newly established territory, they discover that this is a land to which many other misfits and outlaws are drawn. With the help of a colorful host of characters, including a discrete Voodoo priestess, a sly card shark, and a half Irish Comanche chief with a penchant for show and tell, the bounty hunters hazard into second guessing a maniacal killer marauding his way towards the border. In a chaotic chain of events, the situation becomes tense and dire. Will they bring this ruthless roustabout to justice? And if so, will it be before he wreaks unfathomable havoc for those in his path?
