A family saga best begins with murder, betrayal, and an unexpected gift in Satin Murder "Ladies don't just let a gun rattle around in the bottom of their purse." She took the beige bag, unzipped it, and dropped the contents on the bedspread. She gasped, as Officer Riley and Mr. Davis stared in silence. In place of the gun, there lay a mostly flat brownish-black rock.

It's the 1950s in Seattle and socialite Sallee Anderson is at the height of her popularity, but her beauty, intelligence, and savviness won't stop her from being implicated in the cold murder of her husband, who was found dead in his office with a single bullet to the head. What's more, Sallee's pistol is missing. Lawyer Ryan is now hot on the case trying to unravel the mystery, but will he make it in time to save Sallee from jail and disgrace? Disgrace is not all that threatens Sallee's happiness. With suspicious family and friends surrounding her, Sallee doesn't know who to trust, especially not with this kind of secret.

What is Sallee's secret? Read Satin Murder and find out!

The Boxer Rebellion was fought Chinese soil over 100 years ago. Back then, the Chinese government was incredibly weak. Western powers were able to establish concessions – pieces of land that functioned as colonies – all across China. The poor, hungry, illiterate teenagers living in the Chinese countryside felt embarrassed by their nation’s weakness, so they came up with this ritual that they believed would give them mystical powers. Armed with these powers, they marched across their homeland into the major cities, killing European missionaries, merchants, soldiers, and Chinese Christians. Because their martial arts reminded the Europeans of boxing, they became known as the Boxers.

Boxers & Saints is a two-volume project. In the first volume, the Boxers are the protagonists. In second, their Chinese Christian enemies are.

Welcome to the Man Cave! The time: the mid 1980's. The place: Cab and Danny's apartment. Cab likes living on the edge. He makes his living as a sports gambler. But, lately, Cab's luck has been in the dumps. His last ditch effort is to bet on a football game between the classic teams of the San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears, but the combined score cannot be more than 44 points. So, the stakes are high. In the midst of this tension, Cab has to deal with his roommate Danny, who has his own problems: his heartbreak romance with a girl downstairs and learning to play "Blues In The Night" on his harmonica. Jim, their childhood friend and the most educated slacker of the bunch is having to deal with working at a deadend job in a bookstore. Then, out of the blue, another friend from the past shows up: Deursch! He has made something of himself by becoming the ultimate Yuppie. He is very proud of his computer business, lavish expense account, and exotic trips. But is it enough? This reunion brings up old tensions and resentments that is sure to be as volatile as the game on tv, and it's not even halftime. Russ Lees comedy explores male bonding and breaking with field goal precision, and makes you question the validity of material happiness vs basic needs like pizza, beer, a good bong hit, and of course, Monday Night Football.
