She found it. Now it may kill her.
After receiving a lead pointing to the world’s first cloned human, now a small child, Whitney vows to unravel the truth. However, sifting through the facts proves to have dangerous results, including death threats and murder.
When she’s nearly killed, but is saved by undercover FBI Special Agent, Blake Neely, he refuses to let her get in the way of his own objective–at least not right away.
Caught in a lethal game between a billionaire obsessed with genetic perfection, his hit man’s thirst for retribution, and a Colombian drug lord fresh out of prison determined to make Blake pay for his twin brother’s death over a decade ago…
Can they save an innocent child before it’s too late?
Faced with tough choices, with deadly consequences for many–Whitney soon realizes that sometimes a story becomes more than just a story.

Review of 2016 and Happy New Year! #2017

newyear2017

2016 is probably the year most people want to forget. With the loss of so much talent in the film and music industry we were left asking ourselves what the hell happened? I can’t say I ever remember a year filled with so much sadness, heartbreak and disbelief. It is the end of the year and I can finally say, “Goodbye 2016. Get lost. Hit the road. You suck!”.

This past year has taken me on a journey I certainly won’t forget. From horrible medical issues due to Lyme Disease and Bartonella to a personal journey triggered by a “not so wonderful” relationship. The one thing I have learned from 2016 is…it’s amazing what humans can endure and overcome.

I’ve battled through a TIA (mini-stroke), an appendicitis-like event, a gall-bladder from hell (a nasty part I don’t want or need but for some reason doesn’t want to leave me), having to use a cane and walker when my body doesn’t have the strength to stand or walk, fifty plus doctor and specialist appointments, numerous ambulance rides and ER visits, and cancelled gallbladder surgery because I developed pneumonia two days before surgery to end the year on a more disappointing note.

There is some good news, though. The TIA was finally ruled as a TIA-like event likely caused by inflammation due to Lyme and Bartonella and not a true stroke. Although, the left side of my mouth still drops slightly (and no one knows why), I am grateful. Things could have been much worse. As far as my journey after leaving a personal relationship, I have found myself again. I knew I was there all along. It was a struggle to bring myself back. So hurray! I’m back!

Goodbye 2016! You won’t be missed.

This year certainly put roadblocks everywhere but I slayed each one determined to hit most of my goals for the year.

JET: Duplicity, the second Kindle Worlds novella in the Survival series and sequel to JET: Oblivion featuring JET from Russell Blake’s bestselling action/adventure series and characters from my own Whitney Steel series release in May 2016.
