Hemingway’s Daughter Virtual Book Tour


Historical Fiction

Date Published: July 10, 2021

Finn Hemingway knows for a fact that she’s been born at the wrong time into the wrong family with the wrong talents, making her three dreams for the future almost impossible to attain. She burns to be a trial lawyer in an era when Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being told to type and when a man who is 500th in his law school class is hired over a woman who is first in hers. She yearns to find true love when the family curse dictates that love always ends for the Hemingways, and usually, it ends badly. And finally, she’d give up the first two dreams if she were able to triumph on the third. She longs to have an impact on the only thing that matters to her father: his writing. To accomplish that would require a miracle. All three dreams are almost impossible, but it’s the “almost” that keeps Finn going. Ernest Hemingway had three sons but ached to have a daughter.

This is her story.

About the Author

I get my best ideas in the barn as I groom my horse, Nifty. The dogs keep a careful distance as I lift a hoof, scrape it out, then move on to the next one. The repetition soothes me. I begin to dream about women like me, women on the edge, restless women who still want to trust that there is love out there, and that being sentimental is not always contemptible, and that good men are not so hard to find if you keep slogging along, seeking a melody to fit your words. So that’s who and what I write about: restless women searching.

After the Rapture Virtual Book Tour

A Real Life Fable

Nonfiction / Spirituality

Publisher: MindStir Media

Date Published: July 7, 2021

Journeys are rarely straight lines. Unlike a committed tradition such as, say, Buddhism or Catholicism, this is the spiritual path of “Whatever Life Throws At You.” In the tradition of Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi and Ram Das’s Be Here Now, this “little Baptist boy” leads you through the arduous spiritual journey of apostasy, mystical psychosis, sexual excess, drug addiction, homelessness and finally embracing death, all in a quest not only to know, but to ultimately become, All That Is.


“After the Rapture, by Randy Lee Higgins, is the story of the author’s winding spiritual path through the trials and tribulations of his life so far. In addition to being very highly educated, Randy has always had an open mind and willingness to explore any experience that would bring him closer to understanding how to move through life with an open heart and true acceptance of the world around him. His journey has included, among other things, drug addiction, sexual excess, homelessness; all of which he has used as learning experiences to help embrace the idea of what death actually is and how to have peace in life now. Reading about his experiences is sometimes shocking, but you can’t help but admire his open-heartedness and wonder and willingness to really dive deep and learn his own truths.”

–#1 bestselling author J.J. Hebert

About the Author

Randy was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. After graduating summa cum laude from Virginia Tech and receiving a master’s degree in Family Therapy, he completed his doctoral degree at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, CA. By far, most of his education was delivered by the “School of Hard Knocks.” His gift is in seeing the miracle in everything, even in a tragedy — even in the current global catastrophe. He is now back in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the house he grew up in, where he is looking forward to growing old and dying. Or not.

Moonlighter by JC Jaye

Moonlighter by JC Jaye is releasing on March 9th!

Pre-Order available now:
Be sure to add it to your TBR on Goodreads:

This badass bartender is as tasty as the whiskey he pours.

Mitch ‘Moonlighter’ Tirone landed his nickname by excelling at two careers. Hardworking contractor by day, he trades the power drill for a bar apron at night, pouring ʼem strong at his old man’s gin mill. He’s cool as the brews he serves until he spies a flame-haired goddess cruising by on a bright pink bicycle. One gobsmacked glance, and ʼLighter turns loopy as a lush. First item on the gotta-have-her agenda: let’s find out what the beauty likes to drink…

His mystery woman is the town’s sexiest teetotaler.

Substance abuse counselor Andy Lachlan possesses a boy’s name, a centerfold’s figure, and a brutal past. Daughter of a violent drunk, alcohol is her no-go zone, and she’s passionate about assisting addicts while avoiding the liquor lifestyle like the plague. Hours spent advising clients or pedaling off the angst on a hippyish ten-speed don’t leave much time for fun-n-games, but this new girl in the ’hood isn’t about to settle for anyone less than the alpha abstainer of her dreams…

Professional partier, and despiser of all things booze. The chemistry is combustible when bad boy and bohemian meet, but can the star-crossed lovers make it work and find the ‘heavenly mix’?

It was all Rhett and Scarlett’s fault.

(Talkin’ the grand staircase scene, people.)

Stung by the literary lovebug at a tender young age, JC has been devouring spicy romantic fiction ever since. Seriously… What could possibly be more delectable at the end of a rough day than a big, bad, moody male brought to his alphahole knees by a gorgeous, kick-ass, rock star of a heroine?

Well, besides a hefty goblet of vino and some imported Brie.

Dreaming up “I wish” fantasies while slogging through the woefully Rhett-scarce world, JC invites readers to indulge in decadent escape through her foulmouthed and passion-saturated tales.

You heard foulmouthed, right?

Today. Final stage. I send the text before concentrating on the laptop in front of me.
The portable printer I have set up in the basement buzzes to life and begins spitting out pages upon pages of old emails and text messages. My stomach twists as guilt threatens to eat at my insides.
Guilt can go fuck itself. It’s the last necessary step in my plan. The school was a breeze. It’s amazing what happens when money gets involved. Now, to break her and her boyfriend up. It’s astonishing how much power humans give technology. It’ll be but a few text messages to bring her happy relationship crashing down.
And then she’ll be mine to take once more. Mine to touch, to hold, to—
“Hey.” Tristan appears at the top of the stairs. His hand clings to the wooden beam above and he leans on it, adopting a weird ass lazy-looking position. “So, this is it, huh? You ready?”
“Yes.” She’ll be left without no one and nothing soon—nothing but me. My doll will need a new shelf to sit on and I’ve been polishing mine for her. “Where is he?”
“In place,” Tristan responds immediately. “As soon as you make the delivery, he’s good to go.”
The purrs of the printer finally stop and I lift the stack, scanning the top one. It’s these simple papers that will crumble Elena.
“She’ll ask about all this at some point, Ryker. She’s not who she was in high school. She’ll only amuse you for so long, considering how it’s her entire life being ruined.”
He thinks I’m not aware? I’m the one who knows how Elena Sparks works—how she ticks. Hell, I’m the one to make her tick. I’m aware of how she thinks, what she likes, and what will break her. Tristan may have been around for the past four years, but it changes nothing. A century could pass and I’d still know her as well as I know myself.
Steeling my patience, my teeth press hard together, my tone still sharp. “I’m aware.” And I’m prepared. Answers need to come out at some point. My doll will soon know who is to blame here.
“If you’re sure.”
My chin juts as annoyance weaves its way into my mind and banishes all forms of manners from me. “What’s it matter to you anyway? Have you been watching your mark? You have better things to do than worry about mine.”
Tristan straightens and crosses his arms. “Prickly fucker,” he grumbles, though not as quiet as I’m sure he’s aiming for. Louder, he answers, “She doesn’t seem to do much. I’m not sure what she knows, but I’m continuing to work out a plan.”
“Good.” I give a sharp nod. “Focus on that.”
I stuff the pages into a manila envelope and stride away, leaving him behind in the room of all our secrets and plans.
Excitement thrums through me, quickening my steps up the wooden stairs and out the door.
Ready or not, here I come, Dolly.

O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?

Forget Shakespeare, this is definitely one love story you haven’t heard.

Two men, two polar opposite walks of life.

Romeo Monroe is a successful model for one of the world’s biggest names in men’s underwear. Rich, charming, and exceptionally great-looking who also happens to be single.

Julian Carmichael is a successful construction worker and also single. Thanks to his father’s hefty financial investment, Julian is able to live a comfortable life.

So why the single status?

Because they’re both closeted homosexual men.

Both their parents work in high-profile industries and have their own secrets—a strong hatred for homosexuals, and these two men have a lot to lose if their secret gets out.

There’s an instant attraction. Their worlds collide, and these two star-crossed lovers start a dangerous and steamy affair.

Will they survive it? Or meet the same tragic demise as William Shakespeare’s ill-fated lovers?

A contemporary re-telling of Shakespeare’s tragic play, with a modern day twist.
