Spanish Pieces of Eight

“Glaze’s feeling for maritime adventures and beauty is inviting”; “puzzles, mysteries, a touch of suspense, and sea breezes. As a thriller, it’s an enticing tour of a region the author knows well.”—BookLife Reviews, Publisher’s Weekly.
“In terms of writing, the real stars for me are the British Virgin Islands themselves. Lovingly and lavishly described, there’s no doubt Rick Glaze… has a real affection for these small gems of the Caribbean. Anyone who has been there will recognize them intimately. Anyone who hasn’t will likely want to go.” —Caribbean Compass magazine.

From the grave Richard Dennison catapults his squabbling four children into a hunt for a vast treasure-trove of Spanish gold and silver coins. Can they discover a fortune or do the clues evade them and the prize lost forever? If you read only one book this year, this is it. Action, adventure, family strife, Caribbean wonderland, plenty of gold and silver, and characters you can sink your teeth into!

The Purple River

Amazon #1 New Release
“On the whole it was a page turner: exciting enough to keep you reading, but not too fluffy, deep or intense to turn you off. The rafting adventure keeps you turning the pages, and the romance is well delivered.”—MOONSHINE INK
“The setting of a kayak trip is a great backdrop for the deeper conversations and bonds that are formed on this trip.”—Sweeps4Bloggers Web Review
Jackson and an old college friend join a group of kayakers in a trip down Idaho’s Salmon River in what is supposed to be a relaxing getaway from everyday life. But soon, a flooded, swollen river upends their peaceful float, uncovering danger, deceit, and a battle for survival. Packed with action and suspense, the Purple River is a story you will not want to miss!

Ralph & Murray

Travel along with Ralph and his sidekick, Murray, as they narrate the story of the author’s fictional family in the carwash with Elvis blaring out “Hound Dog,” spirit people in the attic, and a treacherous sailing trip around Cape Horn. Why do pencils have erasers, and who eats alligators for lunch? Ralph and Murray have the answers. Meet Uncle Buck and don’t miss a single hilarious adventure of Ralph and Murray.
