Which is why I’m staring at this latch. I’m going to escape today. I’ve been watching closely to see how they work it, though no one’s noticed.
Humans… So unaware…

“The Perfect Book for a Child to Read or to Read to a Child!
Heres a book a child will love! It expresses all the Right Values: Love, Respect, Patriotism, Courage, Honor, Duty & Caring. All wrapped up in an adventure sure to please both young and old!
C.S. Lewis was right. The best children’s books are equally enjoyed by adults. “May on the Way” can be read on three levels and enjoyed on each. A very young child will like the antics of the feisty heroine, May, a Schnauzer with a keen sense of conscience. The older child will enjoy the spy adventure with the characters facing a ‘coming of age’ in that they must face their fears. The adult reader will see serious topics being treated in a way that a young person can appreciate.”
“Fully illustrated, a good read for animal lovers 8 years and up.”
“My tweens are loving May’s story!”
“I just love it and rarely read a book in one sitting but took the time and am so glad I did. I shall re-read it.”
“3 of the 4 winners of our Literacy awards chose May’s book as a prize.”
“The kids went crazy over it!”
“I love how you proposed questions at the end, and the ‘code’ to complete. Make the kids think!”
“You had me from the first paragraph. Thanks. When I’m finished, it goes to the grandkids.”
“KC Frantzen’s May on the Way: How I Become a K9 Spy is a delightful tale of a Schnauzer rising above a horrid beginning to become a bigger than life puppy hero, a story guaranteed to charm any child in your life. A host of illustrations by Taillefer Long adds to the fun of this charming story.”
“What a fun story – very creative and kudos to the illustrator as well!”
“I love how you tell your K9 story, weaving in spiritual and establishment values. It’s definitely a page-turner.”
“You rock May. Now don’t let this fame go to your head, young lady!”
“I have heard positive feedback from many of the teachers who were there for your presentation.”
“She LOVES this book”
“I am 12 years old. I just finished your book… I loved this book so much that I don’t want to read the sneak peek of the next book at all, because I want the book itself!!!”
“It was a pleasure to read, quite a tail or should I say a nub? I may not wait until Christmas to give the boys their books. Well done!”
“Your lively, attention-getting spy book is making the rounds here at Silver Springs Retirement Center. Everyone LOVES it!”
While avoiding the FBI and its moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Jack and her binge-eating partner, Herb, must catch the maniac before he kills again…and Jack is next on his murder list.
Whiskey Sour is the first book in the bestselling Jack Daniels series, full of laugh-out-loud humor and edge-of-your-seat suspense.

I wasn’t supposed to be working the night I met JC.
Before him, I’d been content with the daily grind, managing one of NYC’s top nightclubs. So what if my life didn’t have a happily ever after? I didn’t believe in that anyway.
Then JC showed up.
Sexy, rich and smooth-talking, JC is nothing more than a distraction. I’m not interested in a night-in-shining latex so it’s easy to push the playboy away. Or it is until my life spins unexpectedly out-of-control. Then he’s there for me, offering a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires that requires me to abandon my constant need for control.
His no-strings-attached lessons obliterate my carefully built walls. And as I discover freedom, I start to feel things for him that I shouldn’t. Things that make me fear for my newly vulnerable heart. Because JC has secrets of his own, and his secrets don’t want to set him free.
BOOK ONE OF TWO. This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.
